SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC-2000 12-Cup Coffee Maker shuts off after brewing

Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC-1150 series coffee pot how to clean reservoir

Hello dhubert14,
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. This an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a 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, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is really helpful to you, dhubert14. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

SOURCE: Cuisinart coffee maker turns on but will not brew.

Well, you could try unplugging for an hour. Sometimes that helps, but these have been having a lot of problems (but don't ask their customer service that, they can't admit it but I'm pretty sure they all know it!). I would say call customer service anyway if it's under 3 years old (800-726-0190) after you've unplugged it and let them know what's going on (model and serial # are both located on the bottom of the unit, stamped in the black part). If it's under warranty they can offer you a replacement and from what I hear Cuisinart has been getting in new coffee on demand units (like the one you have) that have fixed the problems. They're on back order right now though, so there will be a wait. Other than that, I would say you don't have many options, unless the store is willing to take it back, because this one is pretty much a goner. Not the first time I've seen it. :(

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

Cuisinart DCC-2205TN coffee grounds coming through to pot and continuing to drip when pot is removed


Your problem is most likely the coarseness of the grind of the coffee you're using. Does your coffee maker have a metal/cone basket or the kind that takes a paper filter?

We've had a Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffee maker for less than a year: 1) it stops brewing about halfway through the brewing cycle (with plenty of water still in the reservoir, and 2) the "Clean" light


This problem is caused by a clogged water filter in the unit.

Unplug the coffee maker.

Open the top panel where you normally pour in the water and set the coffee filter.

Gently pull up on the tap that sticks up in the back left corner of the open top. This will free a long plastic part that has a compartment at the bottom that contains a filter filled with charcoal.

Unsnap the small compartment that holds the filter and clean it gently under running water with light brushing.

If there is a lot of coffee build-up, the water chamber where you normally pour in fresh water needs to be cleaned out. Pour in a cup of water and invert the unit over a large sink pouring out the water through the opening you normally use to fill the unit.

Repeat this until you remove the coffee grounds.

Let the unit dry fully before plugging in to run again.

Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffee maker LEAKS all over my counter . How can I make it stop?


There are a few issues that could be causing this depending where it is leaking from.

The most common leak occurs from coffee grounds. If you over fill the basket or if you are using too fine of a grind (especially if you grind your own coffee) it can clog the filter.

Try using less coffee grounds. The MAX recommended capacity is 15 tablespoons. If you are grinding your own coffee, try a less fine grind. If using already ground coffee, try switching to a different brand.

If this does not work or you are leaking from another spot, clarify and we can try to nail down what the issue may be.

The cuisinart repeated;y clogs and sprays water


The two most common reasons for overflow 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.

My coffee maker, Cuisinart dcc 1400 only boils water, does not make coffee. It is one week old. I have a water filter in the plastic filter holder filled with coffee.

Water sitting in well (where the coffee goes) - doesn't drain


Some fine-grain coffees are too fine for the Gold Tone Filter. If this is the case, remove the Gold tone Filter and use paper filters only. You may have to wash excess grinds out of the black filter basket, since there may be a few stuck in there now - don't take the filter basket apart - just rinse it out with water.

Also, don't use a paper filter and the gold tone filter at the same time.

The brew-pause feature is somewhat limited. You can remove the caraffe quickly, pour, and quickly reinsert it, but there is going to be some drippage during the process. You also have to replace the caraffe back in place quickly, or the coffee will overflow the basket.

Good luck!

Coffee brews cloudy


If the coffee grains are too fine, it will flow through the permanent filter. Use the paper filter instead. Also, make sure the lid is on the caraffe tight, or the filter basket will back up.

Have the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. When you begin to brew coffee it brews some of it but leaves the whole filter top full with coffee and coffee grounds. Called then customer service line and...


It sounds like you were using the gold permanent coffee filter in addition to a paper filter. You should use one or the other.

The gold permanent filter must be cleaned between each brewing cycle.

Try this:

1. Remove the filter basket from the coffee machine.

2. Remove the gold permanent coffee filter from the basket.

3. Clean the basket thoroughly. Ensure there are no grounds clogging any holes.

4. Insert a new paper filter only into the basket. Do not use the gold permanent filter for this test.

5. Fill the water reservoir with the desired amount of water.

6. Add the desired amout of coffee grounds into the paper coffee filter.

7. Replace the filter basket into its holder in the coffee machine, and close the water reservoir lid. Press firmly on top where it says, "Press to Close".

8. Ensure the glass carafe is placed correctly in its position on the heating plate.

9. Turn the Function Knob to "BREW", then flip the Power Swich to "ON"

Hope that helps.
