Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Would not turn on

Been intermittent for awhile, like the others, usually turning off while brewing.
This monring, would not turn on, clock was blank. Tried holding on switch up to on, to see if it would come on. Held for 45 seconds, did not come on.
Unplugged/replugged power cord several times and retried on switch. Still did not work.
Unplugged power cord.
Rotated function selection know from brew to auto.
Plugged in power cord. Noticed clock now was on - read 1200.
Rotated function selection back to brew.
Pushed on switch up once again, and unit began to brew coffee.
My bet is, this will not last, but I have coffee this morning!

Hello timpro,
I recently had this similar problem. If you still have you machine try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

That's an enegy saving "feature" - the ability to turn off the clock. Usually (in most models), you can turn the clock display back on by pressing and holding the clock 10 to 15 seconds.

Cuisinart dgb900bc. Set timer to brew at 5 45. Have for many years. Last two nights at 5 45 clock goes to 12 00 AM. Does not come on automatically. Turn on manually and brews coffee as great as usual....


I would assume that the chip/timer unit has failed in the unit. Not sure you want to try to disassemble the coffee maker to get at it. Have you tried reversing the a.m. to p.m. (thus the clock would read 5:45 p.m. at 5:45 a.m.) settings and seeing if the machine would brew the coffee normally? (although I seriously doubt this will work, but...)

My microwave turns completely off... Touch pad and lights inside... I have to wait 10 seconds to 10 minutes and then it turns back on and will ask if you want to set the clock. Sometimes it will let me...


Hi Ben,
This has got to be an intermittent power to the control PCB problem. The control board asking to set the clock means that the CPU has been reset by losing power. First, make sure that the problem is not the outlet by plugging in a small lamp or digital clock to see if it works intermittently or resets. Leave it plugged in for at least 24 hours.
(If using a lamp, put in a small 20 watt light bulb or CFL).
It could also be a bad connection to or at the fuse holder in the microwave oven. If all of the wiring and connections look good, it's most likely a bad connection on the control PCB probably around the transformer on the board. Be careful.......

I have Mr Coffee APX33; I do not know how to set the coffeemaker to turn on automatically. I do not have the manual. Hope you can help. Thanks! Larry


First you have to make sure to set the clock for the correct current time:
Press down and hold the SET button. Then alternately press the UP and DOWN buttons (indicated by arrows), until you reach the current time, then release the SET button. (there is a PM indicator on screen but not an AM indicator - if you don't see the PM you are at AM)

To set the time for the brew to start in the future:
Press and release the MODE button once and the Delay Brew Clock picture will start flashing on the screen.
While the Clock picture is flashing - hold down the SET button while you use the UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set the desired brew time (you can hold down an arrow button to get there faster). Release the SET button and now that brew time is programmed. (After a few seconds the clock picture will disappear but the future brew time is programmed.)

To activate the delayed brew:
Press and release the MODE button once. The Clock picture will be flashing and the time shown will be the time that you previously set for the future brew). While the Clock picture is flashing - press and release the BREW button. The Clock picture will remain on steady. The BREW light will not come on until the time in the future that you have programmed.

Pretty confusing - but it does work. Just remember that if you see the Clock picture on steady - the machine will come on at the time you have set in.
If you want to use the machine earlier - while the Clock picture is steady - you just press the BREW button and it will brew.
If the Clock picture is steady but you want to cancel the automatic future brew - just press the BREW button twice. (This turns it on and then off and cancels the future brew).

I can send a copy of the manual if you like. Lennyg678@aol

My DCC-2000 will not turn on. It worked for about an hour then the clock and everything shut off. I tried unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugged it back in but still nothing. Any advice?


Try this and let me know if it works - plug the coffeemaker in, turn the function knob to BREW, and then press all 3 buttons in the center of the coffeemaker (the 1-4 button, et, etc) and hold them for a few seconds. Let me know if the clock display comes back on.

Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - not a second less - in order to fully reset it. Then, when you plug it back in, turn the function dial to Clock again. Press and hold the HR button for a few seconds, and then set the hours. It should work now unless it got zapped, as you said.

Good luck!
