Thanks, I did find 2 in a store in Vancouver's Chinatown, but I think they were the only ones in town. It appears the only difference between the Waring Pro and Cuisinart is the lid and the lid looks to be interchangeable.

SOURCE: grounds overflowing

The coffee needs to be ground less fine as the grounds are clogging the filter. Take it apart, clean it out and then try using less ground coffee grounds. The company also has Great customer service and may even send you a new machine if it isn't working after doing this. So try cleaning it and try it again and if that doesn't work, then give them a call about this at 1-800-422-1230 or 1-800-541-6390.

Let me know how everything works out

If you still have warranty on the machine take it in to the nearest service center.
Its probably a lose pipe in the machine. so if you dont have warranty left just open it up and look for lose pipes and reconnect them.

SOURCE: Cuisinart 14-cup coffee maker won't put out coffee

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.

SOURCE: I have Krups KT 406

Did you try it this way?
Before descaling, remove the filter holder (f).
• You may use either the Krups descaling solution diluted in 8 ounces of water or
8 ounces of white vinegar.
• Pour the solution or vinegar into the water reservoir and start the coffee machine
(without coffee).
• Allow half the liquid to run into the carafe, then switch off and let stand for 1 hour.
• Restart the coffee machine to complete the cycle.
• Rinse the coffee machine by running it through 2 full cycles with water only
I would make vinegar stronger and leave it in for a few hours or more.

I have attached a copy of the owners manual for you to download. Thanks for using FixYa; if you could please click accept solution

Cuisinart coffee center, ss-15, lights are flashing on cup sizes, and won't make single cup coffee.what to do?

We have the Cuisinart combination 12 cup coffee maker with a 6,8,10 K-cup maker. Today 8/06/2017 the K-cup started making a strange sound stopped working and all 3 blue lights 6,8,10 where flashing and wouldn't make a cup of coffee. After some looking around it seemed that the top stainless steel water injector was clogged, I took a long toothpick and slowly pushed it in as I spun the toothpick around slowly as to not break the toothpick off inside, the water injector is sharp so the toothpick will fray as you spin it around inside this is why you must go very slowly. I also did the same to the K-cup holder stainless steel spike tube to make sure everything was clear and clean, I then ran 4 full water containers through the K-cup system starting with the 6, than 8 and 10 oz. size. I was finding little black objects in my 20oz drinking cup as I was doing this, not sure what that was but after running the 4 full containers through it they were gone. Now it works fine. I hope this helps anyone with the same machine having the same problem

My cuisinart ss-300 compact single serve will not brew

I had the same problem. What worked for me was the paperclip trick. Yes, there is a metal puncture tube in the k-cup, but there is also one on the top of the lid (when you open it up as if you're putting a k-cup in there). I got a flashlight, used the paperclip to clean out all the encrusted grinds, put it thru the cleaning procedure with vinegar as per the manual, and now it works perfectly! Hope this helps.

Cusinart coffee pot single serve with kuerig cups switch won't turn on


The problem is often that the machine develops a leak in the hose that is right over the transformer...the water drips onto the transformer and kills that... then you have no power to run the machine.

Here is a tip that I wrote about this problem...
