Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Cuisinart Brew Grind l2 cup coffee maker will not work .

I can make coffee using the "Grind Off" mode, but when I want to make it by grinding the beans, it just keeps beaping. I have cleaned it, checked the basket is lined up, all the suggestions in the manual, but it still just keeps beaping. What I don't like is that when you turn it on, the red light does not stay on.

Hello Donna,
I just had a similar problem with mine. What I did with mine was unplug it, lay the machine on its back, and remove the four #10 torx screws from the bottom. You may need to go to the hardware store to get the torx driver. You will find two orange hoses there. Work on the left one. Slip the little pipe clamp down the hose. Try to carefully remove the hose from the pipe without splitting it. If it does split, cut the hose and stretch it when time comes to reconnect it. Just inside the pipe you will see a little black valve. Clean out the calcified debris that you find with a fine wire. I found a bit of coffee bean and calcium deposit inside mine. Try to clean the valve as best you can. When you get is cleaned, reattach the hose and slip the clamp back to the pipe. Replace the bottom panel. Also, there is a "filter column or stick or filter stick on the back left of the machine (upright) which contains a carbon filter. Mine was utterly filthy. Open the stick and remove the filter to discard. Replace it when you can. You can get a new one or two on Amazon reasonably. Check the stick cavity for stray coffee grounds and clean them out. When done reinsert the stick. When I finished with mine, I ran the 2 part water to 1 part vinegar solution through the system and then brewed some fresh water a couple times until clear. Mine brews coffee like new and it's really good! This really is a simple fix and you can do it. Just gather your courage together and do it. :o) ...I really hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions. Regards to you, Norman Zink

This coffee maker (10 c maker with grinder) beeps it's done every few minutes with water left. we have to brew about 5 times for a full pot, what gives?


Presume this is the Grind & Brew Thermal™ 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Model # DGB-600BCC

An instruction booklet is available here: http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/DGB-600BCC_en.pdf

Review the sections beginning on page 11 of the pdf on Turning Off the Grind Function (if not using the grind feature) and Making Coffee.

Make sure you are turning off the grind function if using preground coffee and that the reservoir lid is securely closed.

Check the Cups Setting button; is sounds like the 1-4 feature may be turned on.

Cuisinart grind and brew--water does not come down


If the water is not coming out of the filter basket, and is instead leaking over the edges, then replace the brew basket.

If there is no water at all, call Cuisinart - those coffee makers have a 3-year warranty.

Hi,

Here is a link for the PDF version of the Instruction Booklet for the DGB-600BCC (from the name you provided I’m assuming this is the correct product).

If it’s not the right product, check out the Cuisinart.ca website, you can select the product you are looking for and download the instruction booklet from the product page.

Cuisinart grind and brew


This happens when the machine needs cleaned. Fill coffee maker with white vineger instead of water. Turn grind off, make sure empty pot is in place. Brew a pot of hot vineger. Repeat. Brew a pot of hot water. Repeat. This process removes mineral buildups inside machine. If you have access to filtered water, start using that to brew your coffee. I do and probably do this process 1 per 6 weeks.
