Age? Warranty? Highly likely the electrical connections and controls internal are bad. Probably time to replace with a lightly used replacement. It may be less than repair.

SOURCE: Unit heats but water doesn't come out

I had the same problem. I read this article and was able to figure it out the probem: http://home.howstuffworks.com/coffee-maker.htm The one way valve and the heater pipe in the bottom of the unit are extremely calcified. I opened the bottom by removing the four little "security" screws. I used a little tiny flathead screwdriver because I didn't have the proper "star security screwdriver and it worked fine. Next, I removed the two orange hoses and soaked them in white vineager. The shorter intake hose contains the one way valve. make a note of which way you remove this hose 'cause it has to go back in in the same direction. Next I propped the unit on its side so that I could put some vineager in the heater pipe and let it soak in there. Next I blew into and sucked air out of the one way hose and then rinsed both hoses thoroughly. Then I used a little piece of a wire coat hanger to scrape out some of the junk in the heater pipe, (especially on the heat side) followed by a little pipe cleaner to get it extra clean. Then I put it all back together. Be carefull that the hoses are sealed ok. I actually cut a little off of them to get a new seal on the side that connects to the heater pipe. There wasn't much room for error though. After getting it all back together I ran a few full pots through it of 1/2 vineager 1/2 water and then a couple of just water. Probably a good time to change the water filter inside the unit too. Also, from now on I'll make sure to use the self cleaning mode more often. Good luck. Kevin

I had this problem and saw a post to contact Cuisinart at 1-800-726-0190. Before calling I was pretty mad that my expensive coffee maker pooped out. Called warranty dept on a Sunday morning and got right through to a very nice rep who was patient while I looked for the serial number - What do you know! It was still under the 3 year warranty and they replaced the pot for FREE (not including shipping).

The ease of this resolution has convinced me to buy a Cuisinart product again!

Does the water leak out before or after the brew? Can you leave water in it without starting a brew cycle, or does that leak as well?

SOURCE: DGB-600 grind & brew thermal coffeemaker

Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great now! But I must say that I have seen better engineering in childs' toys!

SOURCE: I HAVE A CUISINART DCC-790 SERIES COFFEEMAKER AND

I have the same problem. Called Cuisinart and they told me to add a mix of 50 - 50 water vinegar and let it sit for up to 3 hours. (even though it is only 3 months old) If that does not work call them back 1-800-726-0190.

I am looking for a charcoal filter #69768 for my coffeemaker model #80666 where can I order?


If anyone is looking for the Kenmore Coffee Water Filter model 69768 - Sears / Kmart re-branded the filter under the Cuisinart name making them near impossible to find under the Kenmore name. HERE is the link to order them under the Cuisinart name at SEARS (its the EXACT same filter and they come 2 to a pack)

I lost my manual on how to use the self cleaning on my cuisinart coffee machine


Decalcification
Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits which form over time on the metal
parts of the coffeemaker.
For best performance from your Brew Central
Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
from time to time. The frequency depends upon
the hardness of your tap water and how often
you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
light will indicate when you should clean your
coffeemaker.
If the Clean light begins to flash when the
coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you that
the calcium buildup is interfering with the
functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir to
capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³ white vinegar and
²⁄³ water. Press the Clean button. When the self
clean light glows, turn the coffeemaker on by
pressing the on/off button. The Clean light will
shine steadily. The coffeemaker is now in Clean
mode. One cycle should be sufficient to
adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the
cycle is completed and the five beeps sound,
the coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the
coffeemaker ON to see if the Clean light
continues to flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and
then repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh
solution of vinegar and water.
If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the
coffeemaker to OFF and then run one cycle of
fresh cold water through the unit before using
the unit again to brew coffee.
Notes on the Clean F unction
Pressing the Clean button cancels all other
settings. If it is pressed accidentally, press it
again to return the coffeemaker to all its
previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will also exit
the Clean Mode and turn the coffeemaker OFF.

Find water filter replacement part # 69768 for Kenmore Coffeemake


I returned the coffeemaker to the Store where I purchased it and exchanged it for a model by a different manufacturer which contained clear instructions as to how and where to obtain replacement parts.

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.

Cuisinart coffee on demand


There are a couple of possibilities. I would try an unconventional decalcifying process - let 1/2 a caraffe of distilled white vinegar and 1/2 caraffe water sit in the reservoir for a full hour with the coffeemaker unplugged. At the end of the hour, plug the coffeemaker back in and turn it on - once a small amount of vinegar and water brews through, turn the coffeemaker off. Let sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let the rest of the vinegar/water brew thorugh.

If the machine doesn't take the vinegar/water at all, call Cuisinart and find out if your are still in-warranty. If you are, get the machine replaced. If you are out of warranty, you can remove the bottom of the coffeemaker (difficult), and look at the bottom - likely you will see a loose hose. You can get a Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware salesperson to find an adhesive that will put it back together, or get a generic replacement hose - original parts would not be available except by buying a broken Cuisinart in the same model.

My two cents.
