My Cuisinart 12 cup thermal coffee maker does everything but make coffee. I put water in the back and it just stays there. I turned it on pushed on start, clock works, and probably 2 minutes later the red light comes on and says it's done. But water is still in the reservoir. Could the hose be affected? or is there a pump? Would like to know as the coffeemaker was expensive. Now about 4 yrs old.

Sometimes coffee grounds explode on the inside of my cuisinart lid of coffeemaker. I use medium ground Dunkin coffee


If it is a normal pour and drip machine, the water shouldn't come out with that force. Put the coffee in the paper filter, then add the water and then turn it on. If you turn it on first, the element heats up and when the water hits the element it blasts a jet of superheated steam into the dry ground coffee.

You should descale it every 4 months or so.

Coffee spilling over the top , not dripping


The caraffe lid must be on the Coffee maker while making coffee.

The lid pushes a opens the hut-of valve in the filter.
If the lid is not on the caraffe, the valve will prevent coffee from dripping out of the filter.

This is to prevent coffee leaking on the lower carafe heating element when you remove the caraffe to quickly pour some coffee. the water accumulates while you do this, so if the machine is still brewing, you should put the carafe with lid back in the cofee maker, to release the accumulated liquid in the filter.

I have a cuisinart dgb 650 series coffeemaker and the carafe top is partially clogged resulting in coffee spilling over the top of the canister. How can I disassemble the lid of the carafe to clean it?


Unfortunately the lid is one unit. What you can do is try decalcifying the lid by soaking it in a water/white vinegar solution. If that does not work you might have to purchase a new lid.

Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water


The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

Lately whether I put in pre-ground beans or whole beans, 1/2 the pot while dripping, leaks all over the counter, Help!


If water is leaking from the very bottom of the machine, your unit is broke and you need to call Cuisinart. If it is just overflowing the caraffe/basket:

The plastic top of the glass pot on two coffee makers drip.


This is a design flaw and can be corrected by enlarging the lid spout. First remove the plastic lid. Then use a fine grinder or sandpaper to remove approximately 1/8 inch of plastic from the lid spout. Follow the exact same contour of the oval spout. However, do not take off so much material that you disturb the small plastic tabs that hold the lid to the pot. Finish by slightly rounding the edges where the material was removed with fine sandpaper. No leaks - no drips.

Cuisinart DCC-240 drip lid came apart, how to reassemble?


You may not be able to put it back on, in case you can't it is no bigee, all this does is prevent coffee from running everywhere if you remove the pot before the maker is finished making coffee.

Wait for it to be done and you will just have just a drip or two.
