SOURCE: cuisinart coffee maker won't brew

Here is the basic troubleshooting for the Cuisinart coffee makers:
Make sure all baskets are in proper place – especially if unit is beeping.
Do not use a paper and a gold-tone or other permanent filter at the same time.
Unplug for LONGER THAN 15 full minutes to reset.
Clean by brewing 2 oz of distilled white vinegar/2 oz water.
If these methods fail, the unit probably requires replacement – call Cuisinart as they have a longer-than-standard warranty.

SOURCE: coffee maker won't brew

This one has two AUTO dial settings - AUTO-ON and AUTO-OFF. AUTO-OFF merely keeps the hot plate warm for a fixed period of time. AUTO-ON is the one that allows your coffeemaker to go off at the pre-programmed time in the morning.

If it is set to AUTO-ON, but is not brewing at the set time, unplug the machine for longer than 20 minutes. Then plug it back in, reset the clock, reset the prog time for a time that is just a few minutes into the future, and then test the auto-on feature.

If it stil ldoes not brew, just turn the machine to brew and press on. If it brews a pot, then your problem is electrical. If it doesn't brew a pot on the regular brew setting, then you either have: A) Calcium buildup/clog, or B) a hose leak (or worse).

To rule out the calcium buildup possibility, let half a caraffe worth of vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn it to brew and press on, and brew the vinegar just as if it were coffee. If the vinegar goes through, your problem is solved.

Otherwise, call Cuisinart and find out if you are still in-warranty. Thep roduct has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Cuisinart Brew Central 12-cup Coffee Maker Filter

Hello tfsmithcambr,
You need 3 pieces. The bottom plug, the spring, and the collar. Slip the spring over the plug. Insert the plug into the basket end. Slip the collar onto the inside the basket end of the plug shaft until it clicks. Should be good to go. If this does not work or you are missing a piece, you may need a new basket. Hope this is helpful. Good luck and kind regards, NormanZ

SOURCE: cuisinart burr grind and brew coffee maker

The hopper between the burr grinder and where coffee chutes into the filter is jammed with coffee powder...

First, take out the filter holder and carafe, and place a freash empty filter on the pot base to catch stuff.

Next, take out the beans holder and look for the release lever in the lower left section. Sliding it to the left slides open the door, where you'll probably find loads of powder. You can poke your finger through to get the majority, then use the cleaning brush to get it really clean.

Thanks what fixed mine! (I notice I have to do this about once every few months.)

SOURCE: The "Brew Pause" feature doesn't work

It's the spring part on the bottom of that black basket. Now that it's broken there's really no fixing it. The only thing to do is call the manufacturer (800-726-0190) to get a new brew basket. They are open on weekends, so you could call them today and see what they can do (brew baskets are covered under the 3 year warranty, btw). Just have your model and serial number and you can probably have a new one ordered in less than 5 minutes. :)

Won't brew...steams, sputters but no water up to filter


You may have a mineral build up, (common in areas with hard water). Fill unit with a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and distilled or bottled water. Let sit for an hour then start the brew cycle. If this fails to clear the blockage there are some coffee maker cleaners available at most supermarkets.

Coffee maker shuts off too soon after brewing.


Hello FloydBob, The Cuisinart DCC-1200 has the ability to program the auto-off function that keeps your coffee warmer plate on after brewing is complete.

The unit lets you select the time increments from zero up to 4 hours.

See page 6 of the attached manual for the full instructions for reprogramming the coffee maker.

To program the Variable Auto Off:
1. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to the “Auto Off”
position. Press and hold the “Hour” button
for 2 seconds. The clock display will start
blinking.
2. Program the coffeemaker to shut off from
zero to four hours after brew cycle is
finished by using the “Hour” and “Minute”
push-buttons.

I figured you might also like to have a complete instruction/owners manual so you can have access for any other questions you might have about your coffee maker, in the future.

I have lost the manual for the Cuisinart Brew Central, model CBC-00, coffee maker. My question is this: What the "carafe temp" knob does with L and H selections? I assume it is to select the carafe...


Hello pdmkali,
Your assumption about the carafe temps is correct. The middle position gives you a medium temp, of course. I use it on low so that I don't burn my lips and tongue when I drink my coffee. Thank you for the opportunity to answer your question. If it is helpful, please leave positive feedback for me. It is appreciated. Regards, NormanZ :o)

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.

Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - not a second less - in order to fully reset it. Then, when you plug it back in, turn the function dial to Clock again. Press and hold the HR button for a few seconds, and then set the hours. It should work now unless it got zapped, as you said.

Good luck!

Coffee maker shuts off too quickly


It seems this coffeemaker insists on shutting itself off after 4 hours,
or whatever "auto-off" time you've programmed in. The only work-around I've found is to switch it to "Brew" and cycle the power switch off and on every time you pour a cup. That will start a new
4-hour timer cycle. Since the pot's still hot, it will go quickly to the
"brewing done" state and render 5 beeps.
