Cuisinart COD 4000 coffeemaker

I have the same problem as shohen above. My Cuisinart (Coffee on Demand) COD-4000 Series Coffee Maker is not working. It has power, and the warming element at the bottom of the coffee reservoir is warm when power is applied, but the maker will not brew a fresh pot of coffee. I bought this machine 5 months ago and it worked perfectly until today. I can't even imagine what's wrong with it.
Same as this persons. 7-15-2009, Cuisinart rec'd a shipment of replacement Coffeemakers which are a new model; DCC2000.
I don't need a response, just letting others know about the issue.

Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should. Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary. The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

I have a Cuisinart DOC-4000 Coffee on Demand Coffee Maker. it no longer brews will not pump the water from the resivor tank to brew the coffee.

Fixing appliances is a dying art, and parts can be hard to get. Buy a new cheaper coffee pot. We've broken so many carafes that we won't pay more than $12 or so for a new coffeemaker.

Cuisinart 12 cup, coffee on demand DCC-2000 Series. I would find it completely dead every morning, requiring me to unplug, wait 5 sec, then plug in again to use. Now, when I plug back in, I see the time...

There have been a lot of complaints about these. Have you tried the vinegar trick? Probably wont work. If it is not coming on, it is a power problem maybe with the control module. Do you have a warranty left?

We have a 2 year old Cuisinart coffee on demand and it just stopped coming on. We turn the buttons and nothing happens.

We had the same problem. Ours was 2 1/2 years old. The warranty is three years on the 'Coffee on Demand 4000'. If you sent in the warranty card or went online and did it when you bought the unit you can get a replacement at no cost. You'll have to cut 3 inches off the cord and send to them.
The toll free number is 800-726--0190 Good luck!
