Most likely it is scale on the lvl sensor, what model is the unit? Also, do not use viniger on plumbed units, you will almost never get good coffee out of it unless you pop the tank lid and drain the tank.

SOURCE: My cw series is a plumbed-in unit. Water flows

The CW series brewers do not have level probes they run strictly on a timer and a solenoid to control the water flow. So, that said, the problem could be the solenoid. If the brewer constantly drips/runs even when the front "ON/OFF" switch is off then it is the solenoid. If the brewing stops with switch off then it is the timer. The timer is located in the panel behind the filter basket on the front of the machine (6 screws) If the brewer has a manual timer set it to about 2 minutes, a good starting point for a pot of water (1/2 gallon). If it stops brewing then you need to fine tune the timer to give you right amount of water for your brewing method. If it doesn't stop... then you will need a new timer. If your brewer does NOT have a "dial/manual" timer follow the instructions on the backside of the panel to "reset" the brew level. If it does not reset you will need a new control board. Hope this helps.

Cuisinart Craft


A clean coffee maker is essential to good coffee. Residue of stale coffee oils will interfere the brewing that caused 2-3 cups only produced. It is suggest regular cleaning of your coffee maker according to manufacturer recommendation.
I took everything out, got a small piece of fine sandpaper, held the plunger in with a pencil, turned on the grinder and sanded the round top portion of the grind basket driver. It takes a few times to get a good snug fit that’s still easy to remove.
The instruction manual that came with the pot will tell you to use one cup (measuring cup) of "white vinegar" and fill the rest of the reservoir with regular water. Turn it on and let it perk the mixture through the system. Then perk a couple of pots of plain water to flush out the rest of the vinegar.
The books say to do this once a month to keep things clean and the coffee tasting great.
A professional machine that is plumbed into a water supply must be thoroughly disassembled, and each part soaked in acid, and manually cleaned. Unless your water is exceptionally hard (you should have a water softener inline with the machine in hard water areas) this should only need to be done every 5 years or so. Heads and screens and filters should be soaked every day in a cleaning solution available from any professional machine supplier. A machine that is not plumbed should have a small amount of Puly brand cleaner added to its tank, and run through several cycles every 3 months. Puly is available thru machine suppliers, but there are also several other brands that do the same. Visit your local coffee machine shop for a good cleaner.

Err2 message


Suggestion was Descaling the Coffee Maker from KitchenAid Phoebe (I'm guessing customer support)

http://kitchenaidconversations.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14441&SearchTerms=err+2

Cleaning scale from coffee maker DO NOT USE THAT MUCH VINEGAR! Put a tiny bit of vinegar in the carafe and fill carafe the rest of the way with water. Run that vinegar/water through machine. Using another container, fill machine with plain water and run that through. Repeat until the vinegar taste is gone. If you do not run lots of plain water through the machine after, your coffee will taste like...um...disgusting!
**************
To clean hard water deposits from a coffeemaker use distilled white vinegar. You may need to use as much as a gallon if the scale buildup is really bad. Fill clean coffee pot one half full of vinegar and run through machine as if making coffee. Repeat this process several times using fresh vinager until it comes out clear. Do this once a week and your maker will work much better.
