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,,,)
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.
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.
