CUISINAR COFFE MAKER STOPPED WORKING

I bought a coffe maker (the one with just a dispenser- not caraffe) less than 1 year ago, and it simply stopped working. I cannot even turn in on. Do you have any idea how to solve this problem or can you direct me to where it can be repaired? Thank you for your help.

Hello normachevar,
I think I can help you. 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. The may be an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a water 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 or shuts the unit down, but most people don't know about this fix.
I hope this is helpful to you, normachevar. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

Cuisinar coffee maker unreliable brewing?


Hi Patti. Set it to automatic. That way when you turn it on to use it, it will be on and should work fine. Joe

Icemaker/water dispenser not working.


Just had to defrost the water tank inside the fridge for a few minutes. Using a waterproof heating pad with extension cord did the trick. Even a fridge needs a warm blanket from time to time.

Won't brew


Run vinegar/water solution - 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water. Let the vinegar/water solution sit in the water reservoir for up to 20 mins before you start brewing the first batch of vinegar/water solution. Run it up to 3 times - just like you would normal coffee. Then, run a caraffe of plain water and see if all is well.

If that fails, then you have a busted or damaged hose inside.

Call Cuisinart, because that one is still in warranty - you will not need a receipt or a box for that one.

Funny tasting coffee


Vinegar/water cleaning is a good idea, but it won't necessarilly solve funny-tasting coffee. First, replace your charcoal water filter - you can get the Cuisinart brand-name replacements at Lowe's, Bed/Bath/Beyond, or Williams-Sonoma in most areas.

To do the vinegar/water cleaning, just pour 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water into the water reservoir and brew it like it was regular coffee - I would simply bypass the self-clean function if your Cuisinart has one. Repeat up to 3 times, using a fresh batch of vinegar each time.
(if you have the caraffe-less DCC-2000, then just pour in 4 cups vinegar and 6 cups water).

Then run a full cycle of water. Then run a combo of 12 tsp lemon juice and 12 cups water (or 10 tsp and 10 cups water) to improve the taste.

On your next batch of coffee, use bottled water just to rule out any possibility that your local water supply may be contributing to funny-tasting coffee.

Now your coffee should be tasting fine again.

Set up for 12 cups. Starts ok but stops after


Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes OR LONGER (not a second less). While it is unplugged, fill the water reservoir with 1/2 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 1/2 caraffe water. At the end of the twenty minutes, replug the coffeemaker and brew the vinegar/water just like it was coffee. You may have to run it through up to 3 times. If the vinegar/water cleaning fails to restore the coffeemaker to normal, you have a deeper issue. This product has a 3-year warranty, so call Cuisinart if you are within your 3 years.

Since I cleaned our Cuisinart 12-cup Brew Central with "Dip-it"  destainer last week, it takes about 3 times longer to brew, and it steams outrageously practically the whole time.  Using the same...


Run 1/3 caraffe vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water through the machine.
Dip-It is not the best cleaner to use with this coffeemaker - stick to distilled white vinegar.

If the cleaning fails to resolve the issue, and the unit was purchased in the last 3 years, call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty.

Long brewing time


Clean it out with 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water. Once it is clean, it should take the normal amount of time and will make slightly less noise since it isn't busy steaming off as much water. Also, double-check the filter basket and make sure it is not slowing down the rate of draining coffee.
