Hello jimmarsh,
You are right, there is a way to fix this. This is really a common problem with this unit that is fixable.
I recently had this similar problem. If you still have your machine try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used an eyeglass screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

SOURCE: Cuisinart Dcc-1200 coffee maker is gurgling a lot,

I had this same problem and found that coffee grounds had somehow gotten in to the water reservoir and had been circulating thru the machine clogging the charcoal filter. This must have prevented the water from entering the heating chamber efficiently and therefore continued to gurgle until it all got thru. I flushed out the reservoir by holding the pot upside down and shooting water into the reservoir. It took some time to get all the grounds out. I took out the charcoal filter, flushed out that section and replaced it with a new filter. When finished, I ran thru a solution of white vinegar for good measure and bingo!! The coffee pot works perfectly.

SOURCE: my 12 cup cuisinart coffee pot keeps shutting off

I have the same pot except for the 10 cup model, and it has been doing the same thing. I realized that I have never changed the charcoal filter inside, and I believe that may have been the problem. I removed the filter, ran vinegar through the pot several times as well as cleaned some nasty looking scum out of the water reservoir. I ran 3 pots of water after that. The problem has not recurred so far. I think it may be fixed although time will tell for certain.

SOURCE: the heater plate on cuisinart cbc-1600 coffee

Called the company and the representative told me that on the CBC 1600 series, it is intentially designed to turn off the hot plate after brewing because the stainless steel carafe will keep the coffee hot. If you are experiencing poor heating, her suggestion was to preheat the pot with really hot water before putting it under the basket. I can't help wondering if they have turned a bug into a feature

Need to clean cuisinart 12 cup coffee on demand coffe pot. How do I clean?


Do you have the DCC-2000?

To delime a multi-cup coffee maker, mix white vinegar with water (1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water) and fill the water reservoir completely. Then turn the coffee maker on. Wait until the unit completes the "brewing" cycle and beeps 5 times. Turn off the coffee maker. Discard the liquid after the cycle. Then fill the reservoir with clean water and turn on again. When this cycle completes, again discard the liquid. Repeat the water rinse if you notice an odd taste to the coffee afterwards. (If the coffee maker still has deposits, repeat the vinegar cleaning cycle and rinse cycles.) There are commercial deliming products, mix them with water following the package directions.

The manual for the DCC-2000 is available as a link here: http://www.cuisinart.com/products/coffee_bar/dcc-2000.html . The direct link to the manual is http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/dcc-2000.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How to clean


mcdevito75 here, Start with a new paper filter or claen the perminant one, you"ll need enough WHITE VINEGAT to fill the pot itself 3/4 full of this WHITE VINEGAR, NOW pour the pot of 3/4 full of WHITE VINEGAR into the resovoir, replace pot in the coffeee maker and cycle thru the vinegar 3 times, each time letting the mavhine cool a bit for easy handleing, on the 3 rd cycle stop 1/2 thru the brew cycle, let machine cool for 30 Minutes, then complete that cycle. Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.

What does it mean when the brew light flashes?


Pot needs cleaning. Fill reservoir with 4 cups of vinegar. Press the SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light turns on. Let it perk through. It will take 45-60 minutes. It brews a few cups, stops and then should brew the remainder of the vinegar. When the cycle is complete the light will burn off and the coffeemaker will turn off. Discard vinegar solution and run a couple of pots of clear water through. Hope this helps.

I have a Cuisinart SS-1C (I'm in Canada) coffee-maker. It works pretty well, however, I have noticed (and measured) that I get at least 2 fewer ounces than the number I select. For instance, I get only 2...


There is probably a disclaimer in the user guide, as there are in many coffeemaker owner's manuals, to the effect that the coffee dispensed to the cup or the carafe will always be slightly less in quantity than the amount of water added or desired due to absorption by the grounds. This is not a malfunction, however. The only real solution is to brew the next size up.

Clean light will not off after cleaning cycle performed 4 times


Unplug the machine for 20 minutes or longer - don't skimp on the amount of time, or it won't work. After 20 minutes, plug the coffeemaker back in, and you will see that the self-clean light is now off.
