Every time I make coffee the filter basket overflows. I am using the correct filters but it seems the filter does not drain out as fast as the hot water is entering it, therefore collapsing the filter in...


It's a drain p[roblem and/or the part that drains into the caraffe is not aligned properly. Also check the hold that the coffee should be going into and make sure it doesn't have build-up blocking it.

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?


Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

Coffee spilling over the top , not dripping


The caraffe lid must be on the Coffee maker while making coffee.

The lid pushes a opens the hut-of valve in the filter.
If the lid is not on the caraffe, the valve will prevent coffee from dripping out of the filter.

This is to prevent coffee leaking on the lower carafe heating element when you remove the caraffe to quickly pour some coffee. the water accumulates while you do this, so if the machine is still brewing, you should put the carafe with lid back in the cofee maker, to release the accumulated liquid in the filter.

Overflows


The two most common reasons for overflow have to do with the caraffe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and caraffe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the caraffe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the caraffe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the caraffe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the caraffe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

Cleaning light is blinking and I lost my Manuel. What do I do??


Put 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar into caraffe and 2/3 caraffe water. Pour into water reservoir. Press the self-clean button - it may take a while for this process to complete. After it is finished, the self-clean light may or may not go off (esp. if it is a DCC-1100 series). If the light does not go off, just unplug the coffeemaker from the wall outlet for an hour. The manual is available from Cuisinart's website.

Coffee caraffe lid-


I also had this same problem. If you look at the top of the caraffe handle from the side, you will notice a small line of breakage - use your thumbnail to pry the lid upwards. It is a bit tricky to get off the first time, but it gets easier after that. The part that makes it hard to figure out is that most coffee maker either have a hinged lid, twist-off lid, or the entire top of the caraffe comes off - with this one, only a thin strip of the top comes off.

Water sitting in well (where the coffee goes) - doesn't drain


Some fine-grain coffees are too fine for the Gold Tone Filter. If this is the case, remove the Gold tone Filter and use paper filters only. You may have to wash excess grinds out of the black filter basket, since there may be a few stuck in there now - don't take the filter basket apart - just rinse it out with water.

Also, don't use a paper filter and the gold tone filter at the same time.

The brew-pause feature is somewhat limited. You can remove the caraffe quickly, pour, and quickly reinsert it, but there is going to be some drippage during the process. You also have to replace the caraffe back in place quickly, or the coffee will overflow the basket.

Good luck!

Clean it out with 1/3 caraffe worht of vinegar and 2/3 caraffe full of water - just brew the solution as if it were regular coffee - you may have to repeat this process up to 3 times.
