At the bottom of the reservoir there is a hole the water flows through to the heater. When my coffeemaker did what yours does it was because a little valve that sits in that hole had popped out, and after tamping it back in it solved the problem. The valve is supposed to keep the hot water from going back up into the reservoir. Without it the water backs up, causing the steam to shoot up as you know, and heats up the water in the reservoir. This causes the thermostat to turn it off prematurely. The valve can come out of the hole either if the coffeemaker is turned upside down, or if there is a major buildup of mineral deposits that need to be flushed out -- they can overheat and cause too much back-pressure to the valve. Flush it with vinegar and push the valve back in as tight as you can, then be careful if you turn it upside down.

SOURCE: When brewing, it steams and spits the water out

this is what happened to me, I didn't have the filter basket all the way down so the pot lid didn't open the valve that lets coffee flow so the coffee and grounds ran into the water resevior and plugged the filter, so I did the worst thing possible and took the filter out so the grounds got into the check valve that keeps the hot water going in the right direction. that makes it spit and sputter and brew slow.
after trying to flush it out forever I tore the metal plate on the bottom off and unhooked the rubber hoses (don't do this unless you have a needle nose pliers, you'll never get them back on) one should go to the brew head and the other is the water inlet, this has the check valve. you can tell which is which by blowing through them and seeing which one goes to the brew head. if you can blow through the other one the check valve is stuck open, I blew air into it with an air compresor and this forced the check valve shut and now it works fine. I know this is the same symptons as calcium deposits but I had cleaned it twice.
try flushing it with water first but sometimes it takes extreme measures

SOURCE: Cuisinart Dcc-1200 coffee maker is gurgling a lot,

I had this same problem and found that coffee grounds had somehow gotten in to the water reservoir and had been circulating thru the machine clogging the charcoal filter. This must have prevented the water from entering the heating chamber efficiently and therefore continued to gurgle until it all got thru. I flushed out the reservoir by holding the pot upside down and shooting water into the reservoir. It took some time to get all the grounds out. I took out the charcoal filter, flushed out that section and replaced it with a new filter. When finished, I ran thru a solution of white vinegar for good measure and bingo!! The coffee pot works perfectly.

I have an older model cuisinart 12 cup coffee maker. This am the water will only slow drip through the filter. There is lots of gurgling but not much coffee. Can u help me figure out what's wrong?


Calcium buildup. Follow your coffee maker's manual cleaning procedures to dissolve the hardness buildup.

If you can't find your manual, try mixing 1-2 cup of white vinegar in an 8-oz to 12-oz pot of water and pour it into the water receptor. Run the coffee maker until about 1/2 the water has passed through the machine then turn it off and let it stand for awhile (say an hour). Then turn it back on and let it finish. This should dissolve the hardness buildup in the machine and restore the flow. If not repeat. If you use a paper filter during the process, you should capture all sorts of hardness particles.

After it's flowing good again, run with one or two pots of water to rinse.

Cuisinart DC 1150 (10 cup) coffee maker leaks out of the top.


I have experienced this same problem. You have to pour the water directly into the holding bay, avoiding the edges. I think water gets stuck around the rim, it just steams over the edge, or drips down the front and back onto the counter. I don't know why, but it happens, so just make sure you pour the water directly into the bay avoiding edges.

Why does the coffee maker make a loud noise right before it brews the coffee?


Usually this is the expansion of steam as the heating element quickly rises to the preset temperature. This process heats the water to the correct temperature and causes the water to flow upward from the water reservoir. Then out the brewing spout over the coffee grounds.

It will usually make strange noises at the end of this cycle too.
The water is used up and remaining steam is vented.
Sounds more like a burping and last minute gurgle really. :)

Hope this helps!

Can't get milk to foam


Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

I got a Cuisinart coffee maker DCC 1400C for a wedding present, worked fine, then all of a sudden STOPPED. I did the self clean, and that worked fine, the brew setting doesn't. The water doesn't go...


Unplug for 20 minutes or longer to reset. Make sure the lid is on the caraffe, or the brew basket will be stuck in the closed position. If the water still won't go through, consider ordering a new brew basket, because yours might have a faulty spring.

Slow water drip


First of all it depends on the hardness of the water. Vinegar doesn't really work in the heavy lime belt area of the midwest. It is better if you use lime away. It is an ecolab product that is great at lime removal. Use one cup per pot. Then rinse two pots worth if this is the kind of machine that uses the same water that is put in during each brew cycle. Some brewers have a reservoir. Bunnomatic is an example of that kind of brewer. If you use lime away in that kind of brewer you need to run about thirty pots to remove all the lime scale remover from the brewer. Slow brewing can also be caused by over softened water. I drove from Indy to Iowa after installing a brewer and then a day later the store put in a softener and over softened the water causing the coffee filter to clog up with sodium. Also check the sprayer disc or head where the water comes out. Over time coffee "paste" will build up around the outlet and if you don't wipe it clean or "smear" the coffee grounds around the outlet that will slow down the brewing cycle. I have thirty years as a brewer technician and it is usually one of the things I have covered, providing that the heat element isn't defective.
