Question about Cuisinart CHW-12 12-Cup Coffee Maker

Open Question

My CHW-12 Cuisinart Coffeemaker will not brew in Auto Mode when set for over night. Programmed for 6 AM and when I get up 30 to 45 minutes later it has not started. Rest of coffeemaker works fine.

Programmed for 6 AM and 45 minutes later it has not started and I have to change switch to Manual Brew and turn on with Power Button. When Auto Mode is set, I turn the unit on and wait until morning to brew but as they say "No Joy"

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC-2000 Coffeemaker

I had this problem and saw a post to contact Cuisinart at 1-800-726-0190. Before calling I was pretty mad that my expensive coffee maker pooped out. Called warranty dept on a Sunday morning and got right through to a very nice rep who was patient while I looked for the serial number - What do you know! It was still under the 3 year warranty and they replaced the pot for FREE (not including shipping).

The ease of this resolution has convinced me to buy a Cuisinart product again!

SOURCE: Automatic Grind not working

My grinder was not working properly, because the blade was not rotating freely. So we carefully chipped away some caked on coffee residue. Then it worked for awhile, but started to sound weird and only partially grind the coffee. So we applied a small amount of vegetable oil to the blade and let it seep down a little, and that was very succcessful! Just needed a lube job!

SOURCE: DGB-600 grind & brew thermal coffeemaker

Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great now! But I must say that I have seen better engineering in childs' toys!

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC 2000C

We have the same intermittent problem with the on/off switch on our DCC 2000C......don't know if the switch is bad (we hear it click when turned on) or if the water pump is intermittent. Either way, the end result is no coffee and concern about a potential fire. Today, after reading a post by a DCC 1200 owner with the identical problem, I called 1-800-726-0190 and spoke with a young man who was most helpful. Although, we cannot locate our proof of purchase, we believe the serial number indicates manufacture within the warranty period. He said we will receive a replacement in 7-10 days and then we must return the malfunctioning unit in the same box along with a $10.00 check. We'll see how it goes and post again if it doesn't happen as I've described.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups

I have the same problem with the exact same coffee maker I have tried pushing the 1-4 cups button. That worked for a couple weeks, now it is back to only brewing half the water in reservoir whether I push the 1-4 button or not. It is very annoying.

sounds like the coffee maker had a power surge. Try setting the time again.
1. Setting the Clock When the coffeemaker is plugged in, 12:00 will appear until you set the time. Entering "Time Set" Mode: To set the time, hold down either the "Hours" or "Minutes" button until the clock begins flashing (about 2 seconds). You are now in the "Time Set" mode and can operate either button to achieve the desired setting. The buttons can be held down to scroll through the digits, or pressed and released lightly to advance one digit at a time. When scrolling, the numbers will advance slowly at first and then speed up to the rate of about three per second. When the number displayed approaches the desired setting, release the button and press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. Be careful to make sure that the PM indicator is on if a PM time is desired. Exiting "Time Set" Mode: The "Time Set" mode can be exited in one of two ways: 1. Press any button besides the "Hours" or "Minutes" button. This will exit the "Time Set" and activate the selected function. 2. Do nothing. If neither the "Hours" nor "Minutes" button is pressed for a period of five seconds, the "Time Set" mode will be exited. 2. Setting the Program Ti m e : When you press the "Program Set" button, it displays the current program time (default time 12:00 p.m.). Entering "Set Program Time" Mode: Press and hold the "Program Set" button (about 2 seconds) until the green light and LCD display begin to flash. This signals that you have entered the "Set Program Time" mode. The desired time can be set by pressing the "Hours" and "Minutes" buttons to scroll forward through the digits. Pressing and holding either button will allow you to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to accelerate to the rate of about three digits per second. As the desired time setting approaches, release the button and then press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. The coffeemaker will start to brew at the programmed time. The "Program" mode cannot be entered if the c o ffeemaker is in its "brew" cycle. Exiting "Set Program Time" Mode: "Set Program Time" may be exited in any of three ways: 1. Press the "Program Set" button. This will cause the coffeemaker to revert to its previous state. If it was OFF, it will return to the OFF position. If "Programmed", it will revert to this state, and so on. This is a safety feature. 2. Press any other button (except "Hours" or "Minutes"). "Set Program Time" will be exited and the function of that button will be executed. 3. Do nothing. If neither the "Hours" nor "Minutes" button is pressed for a period of five seconds, the "Set Program Time" mode will be exited and the programmed setting will be in effect.

Coffee maker shuts off too soon after brewing.


Hello FloydBob, The Cuisinart DCC-1200 has the ability to program the auto-off function that keeps your coffee warmer plate on after brewing is complete.

The unit lets you select the time increments from zero up to 4 hours.

See page 6 of the attached manual for the full instructions for reprogramming the coffee maker.

To program the Variable Auto Off:
1. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to the “Auto Off”
position. Press and hold the “Hour” button
for 2 seconds. The clock display will start
blinking.
2. Program the coffeemaker to shut off from
zero to four hours after brew cycle is
finished by using the “Hour” and “Minute”
push-buttons.

I figured you might also like to have a complete instruction/owners manual so you can have access for any other questions you might have about your coffee maker, in the future.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

No instructions on programming auto shut-off time (feature listed on box).


You have to use the "Auto-Off" feature, which is located on the same button as on/off:
The automatic shutoff time (ASO) can be
programmed to shut off immediately after
brewing (0:00) or up to 4 hours later. The
default shutoff time is 2 hours.
Press and hold the On/Off button to display
current shutoff time. To change the preset
time, press and hold the On/Off button until
the red power light and LCD display begin to
flash. This signals that you have entered the
Set automatic shutoff mode. Set the time
you want coffee to begin brewing by
following the instructions in “Entering Time
Set Mode.”
When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two
tones will sound.
NOTE: Automatic shutoff may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. If you program the auto shutoff
time after brewing is completed the unit
will automatically account for elapsed time.
For example, if you set the auto shutoff for
40 minutes and 25 minutes have already
elapsed, the unit will shut off automatically
after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25
elapsed equals 15 minutes).

Need assistance on how to program the timer for my cuisanart 12 cup coffee maker


1. Set the desired Brew-Start time.
a. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to “Prog”.

brewing by using the minute and hour
push-buttons. Follow the same instructions

2. Turn the FUNCTION knob to the “Auto On”
position. LCD will display the current time.
3. Lift and release the FLIP SWITCH. The

At the programmed time, the red light will
come on as well, indicating that the brew
cycle is starting. Both lights will go off when
keep warm cycle ends.
NOTE: To reactivate the auto-on feature to
start brew cycle at the same time another day,
simply lift and release the FLIP SWITCH. The
green “auto-on” light will illuminate.

Set up for 12 cups. Starts ok but stops after


Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes OR LONGER (not a second less). While it is unplugged, fill the water reservoir with 1/2 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 1/2 caraffe water. At the end of the twenty minutes, replug the coffeemaker and brew the vinegar/water just like it was coffee. You may have to run it through up to 3 times. If the vinegar/water cleaning fails to restore the coffeemaker to normal, you have a deeper issue. This product has a 3-year warranty, so call Cuisinart if you are within your 3 years.

Coffee maker won't brew


This one has two AUTO dial settings - AUTO-ON and AUTO-OFF. AUTO-OFF merely keeps the hot plate warm for a fixed period of time. AUTO-ON is the one that allows your coffeemaker to go off at the pre-programmed time in the morning.

If it is set to AUTO-ON, but is not brewing at the set time, unplug the machine for longer than 20 minutes. Then plug it back in, reset the clock, reset the prog time for a time that is just a few minutes into the future, and then test the auto-on feature.

If it stil ldoes not brew, just turn the machine to brew and press on. If it brews a pot, then your problem is electrical. If it doesn't brew a pot on the regular brew setting, then you either have: A) Calcium buildup/clog, or B) a hose leak (or worse).

To rule out the calcium buildup possibility, let half a caraffe worth of vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn it to brew and press on, and brew the vinegar just as if it were coffee. If the vinegar goes through, your problem is solved.

Otherwise, call Cuisinart and find out if you are still in-warranty. Thep roduct has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!
