SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups

I have the same problem with the exact same coffee maker I have tried pushing the 1-4 cups button. That worked for a couple weeks, now it is back to only brewing half the water in reservoir whether I push the 1-4 button or not. It is very annoying.

SOURCE: We cleaned our DCC-1200 cuisinart coffeemaker

I had the same problem and just finished fixing mine. The problem is very likely that you have coffee grounds in the water hoses in the bottom of the unit; this gets worse over time, constricts the flow, and can lead to all sorts of woes. Cuisinart will void the warranty if you open your unit, and they neither sell replacement parts (e.g., hoses) nor provide any guidance on how to fix it (I found this out when I called them today). If your unit is less than 3 years old it is still covered by the warranty and they will send a replacement unit; if it's more than 3 years old you have nothing to lose!

Here are the steps:

  • First, thoroughly clean, scrub, and rinse every part of the coffee maker that you can access. Make sure to remove the black plastic cover inside the top lid (snaps off easily). You'll be disgusted by what you find and there may be oily caked-on sludge inside the cover. You want to get any stray coffee grounds you can.
  • Get a Torx type screwdriver, size T-10 (this looks like a starburst pattern; a hex driver will not work). You can buy a set with different sizes for about $6 at Sears, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.
  • Turn the unit over and you'll see 4 small screws deeply recessed in the bottom; remove each of them. You may want to use a flashlight to locate which holes have screws, as some don't.
  • Pull the bottom cover off, making sure not to lose any screws.
  • You will see 2 rubber hoses, likely orange, each about 6" long. 1 end is attached to the metal heating element and held in place by a clamp; the other end goes into the coffee maker.
  • Remove the end of each hose that goes into the coffee maker by simply reaching in and pulling gently. They should slide off fairly easily. Do NOT try to remove the clamped ends. Trust me--I tried and they are fused to the metal; they shred very easily and won't budge...
  • Pour a little water in the left hose (with both loose ends facing you it's the one on the left). While holding a cup to the right side hose end blow hard into the left hose. Water will squirt out into the cup and you'll almost certainly see some coffee grounds in the water. Repeat this step 4 or 5 times, making sure there are no more grounds.
  • Re-attach the hose ends to the coffee maker, replace the screws.
  • Run 2-3 full pots of plain water through the unit to remove any stray grounds and you're good to go

Owned this coffee maker for 14 mos. At first you'd turn the brew switch and the brew cycle would start. Over time you'd turn the brew switch and it would take awhile. Now who knows when it will start.


Over time, Calcium will deposit on the tubes and containers which get in touch with water. 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.
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. .

My mr. coffeemaker beeps 5 times and doesn't brew the coffee I just purchased this coffee pot last month aug 2014. what could be the problem


I see two problems that you've described.

First, you have a bad empty-reservoir sensor. Mine went out on my first Mr. Coffee within the first month also. The purpose of the sensor is to trigger the beeping to simply let you know when the coffee is done. The coffeemaker would normally work fine otherwise.

Second, you have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

Kuerig water filter location


Exit tube is the PIN like projection that pierces the top of the Kcup. Cleaning is easy, use a standard paperclip with one end straightened out and stick it as far up the tube as you can to break away and debris that clogged the exit tube. The filter is the small package sitting inside the water reservoir (tank) and it comes out by pulling it upward toward you. This needs to be changed approximately every 3 months, unless you use filtered water and/or distilled water. (which you should do to avoid plugged tubes). If satisfied rate this reply, please.

The ''clean'' light is on my cusinart coffee maker


Let a half caraffe worth of distilled white vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn the coffeemaker on and let it brew the vinegar until a small amount of vinegar appears in the caraffe. turn the coffeemaker off and let it sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let it brew the rest of the vinegar. Then run a full caraffe of plain water to flush the vinegar out. If the self-clean light remians on - unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - if you unplug it for any less than 15 minutes, the coffeemaker will not reset itself. You should be good after that - as long as you do some sort of vinegar/water cleaning once a month henceforth.

How do I use the self-cleaning option


According to the manual for IS series Mr. Coffee for programmable models:
1. Prepare one batch of Mr. Coffee coffeemaker cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Remove the water filtration disk from the machine.
4 cups or 20 oz. of undiluted, white household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an empty paper filter or permanent filter into the filter basket and close.
3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit, centered on the warmer plate.
4. Press SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light is illuminated. For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 min to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
  • Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
  • Pause for 30 min (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). At the end of the pause period your coffeemaker will beep.
  • After 30 mins your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution.
  • When complete, the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will automatically beep and shut off.
5.Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanter thoroughly with clean water.
6. Fill the water reservoir with clean fresh water.
7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker, centered on the warmer plate.
8. Remove and discard the filter used during the cleaning cycle and replace it with a fresh paper filter. If a permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket.
9.Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete.
Repeat steps 6-9 one more time.
