SOURCE: My cuisinart cofee maker is clogged. Water goes

OK, I Fixed it. Overcame mutiple issues. Here's the deal.
1. Call Cuisinart. If your in warrenty, they will just ship you a new one.
2. The issue is that ground overflow the basket and clog a check valve in the water line.
3. instructions assume coffee maker is positioned upside down and with water chamber closest to you.

Solution: Dissasemble and flush grounds out.
1.Remove botoom plate.
They intentially made it impossible to get into There are custom 10mm torx screws with nipples in the middle (like compaq computer did to prevent us from opening computers). Answer DRILL them out. Extreme sounding but really pretty easy on the cheap soft screws.

Drill out four (4) screws and Remove bottom piece.

2. Free up Bottom plastic base. (hoses and wires will prevent true removal)
Next issue is getting long (4 inch) size #0 screwdriver and removing 5 phillips screws. I had to got to home depot because Target and walmart didn't carry anything small enough and long enough.

3. Remove left silicon hose (Orange).
Lots of stuff here.
a. pull BOTH hoses off the plastic (not aluminum) nipples down inside the coffee maker. No clamps, just pull up.
b.Move LEFT metal clamp back off alum tube on the left hose.
c. work LEFT hose off tube (know that it is full of grounds,,,)

4. Flush
CAUTION: Don't force this next step with water pressure. THere is a check valve which is supposed to stop flow one direction. You can feel the checkvalve and see it once grounds are out.
a. Clean hose out. Logic says use sink, but I just used water in my mouth to gently go back and forth and grounds flowed into waste glass. flush FROM metal clip to water chamber. Get all grounds out.
b. you can validate check valve working again because you can feel flow only goes one way as you swish water back and forth (again mouth works great)
b. Re-attach hose to alum tube
c. Flush from left hose through tube through right hose into waste glass.

5. Reinstall.
a. know that circuit board has to be seated in slot
b. position base on and install 5 screws
c. THEN attach hoses to plastic
d. put on base plate. Mine kind of snapped in place, but I put clear tape on it to hold it there. A real mechanic would of drilled out the screws and installed larger ones. Meh.

The light goes on. I can feel the water is heated. Machine makes a lot of noise, but water doesn't pass from resivoir thru to frother wand or thru coffee filter. I am just running water to te


It needs to be descaled. After that, turn and try to make coffe but without the cofee. Turn on the steamer nozzle at the same time, that will draw the water to the coffee area, in fact try that first.

My Cuisinart DCC-1200 takes a long time to brew now, the coffee is weak, and the self-clean button flashes each time. I've had it for about 4 years.


Over time, Calcium will deposit on the tubes and containers which get in touch with water.
The calcium can also impact the function of the Heating elements in the percolator tube.

Try Decalcifying with Designated Products.
Usually, you do this by diluting the product, fill up the water reservoir, and cycle on the machine, without cofee of course,
Pour out the water. It will probably look troubled.
If the water does not start percolating, just let the water reservoir stand with the decalcification product for about 30 mins. don't leave it in overnight, because these products are slightly caustic to remove the Calcium, but it could damage parts if left in the machine overnight.

Repeat the process until the water starts running faster and/or gets hotter.
don't forget to rinse with regular water. 2 Cycles rinsing should suffice.
See manual for suggested products or just use 1/4 cup of Vinegar diluted with Water per caraffe. It will smel like vinegar while you do this, as the vinegar evaporates with some of the steam.

I would repeat this process every month or so if you use your machine daily.

If this does not solve, try contacting cuisinart customer service at 1-800-726-0190

Coffee spilling over the top , not dripping


The caraffe lid must be on the Coffee maker while making coffee.

The lid pushes a opens the hut-of valve in the filter.
If the lid is not on the caraffe, the valve will prevent coffee from dripping out of the filter.

This is to prevent coffee leaking on the lower carafe heating element when you remove the caraffe to quickly pour some coffee. the water accumulates while you do this, so if the machine is still brewing, you should put the carafe with lid back in the cofee maker, to release the accumulated liquid in the filter.

My Cuisinart dcc-2600 does not distribute the water.

My Cuisinart DTC -975 coffemaker fails to pump water. I turn it on then after twoo minutes it beeps and then shut-off. Why is it doing this and is it fixable?


My Cuisinart Espresso Maker EM-200 won't pump the water in and then the manual, one cup, and two cup lights come one and they flash and beep. What am I doing wrong?

The cofee maker my dad gave me wont make any coffee


You may need to run a pot of white vinegar and water (50/50) through several times to flush out the line and heater. Make sure that the plate under the pot is getting very hot or it won't pump water from the reservoir. Hope this helps!
