The pot you can wash with dish soap and warm water. Rise really good. If you want to clean the whole coffee maker you can fill your coffee pot with about 1/4 cup of vinger and the rest water run that through it and after that has run then run it 2 more times with just warm water to make sure all of the vinger is out.
sometimes they become partially blocked and the best thing to do is run a quarter cup of vinegar mixed with a full pot of water through it empty and repeat if necessary. This will help to clean the tubes out of any residue and help to put it back to normal, Be sure to run a pot or two of just water through it after the vinegar to rinse it clean of vinegar.
I have been having the same problem. Do you hit pot holes when driving that may possibly jar the battery in the car enough to shut the engine off? I have been having that issue, the only thing I can thing of is that the battery isn't securly on or even the possitive and negative cables need switched.
Leaking water-Have you had the radiator and water pump checked? I know in my case it has to be a hose (it could possibly be the reserve tank too) We fixed the main hose that goes to the radiator, but no such luck. I'm gonna need to put it up on the ramp and check all the hoses out.
Random Sensors- If you hit pot holes does your track off light come on? In that case I know that's normal. I also have been told that the older the car the more likely the "Service Engine Soon" light will stay on. I know I also have a problem with the fuse box, sometimes the lights in my car will turn off then turn on, and sometimes one headlight will work and sometimes it won't.
Sometimes coffee grounds get into the intake if you don't use the intake filter. Unplug, set the pot aside and then turn the coffe maker upside down in a sink with a good hose sprayer. Direct the water up into the intake side of the coffe maker with the filter out.
Then refill and see if water will flow through. If it works, run vinegar or a pot of water with a tablespoon of dissolved baking soda (dissolve in pot first or it will clog the coffee maker).
you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.
Hello bean_54806, This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar
with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. The may be
an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of
the unit and in one of the corners you should find a water filter stick or
column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the
clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on
Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace
the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a
solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice
with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter
stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it or shuts the unit down, but most
people don't know about this fix. I hope this is helpful to you, bean. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ
Okay, try this, make sure that everything is cool first, then take a turkey baster full of hot water and vinegar and shoot it backwards through the coffee maker...where the water falls on to the grinds. After that, try running either a commercial coffee pot cleaner or just again, vinegar through the brew cycle with no coffee in there. Try it two or three times, there may be calcium buildup in the filter and pump. You could also try that CLR cleaner, but make sure you rinse the pot out really good, and run a few cycles of just water before you drink anything from it.
