Cuisinart DCC 490 coffee maker won't turn on

My Cuisinart DCC 490 coffee maker wouldn't turn on in either normal or programmable mode. It would let me program the timer and the auto off, but it wouldn't do anything when I turned the knobs the other way. No lights, no beeping, nothing. Finally decided to take the electronics panel off and once it was apart I could get the on/off to work. But when I put it back together it stops working. I've got it working (kinda) now by putting the panel back on but not screwing the circuit board in tight. Of course, this means that there is not enough contact with the buttons to set the time, grind off, etc. It seems that tightening everything back down is causing some sort of pinch/short circuit, etc. The thing works, but I have a really fancy, unprogrammable coffee maker that always grinds. Less than ideal. Anyone run into this and have any suggestions?

Need instruction booklet for DCC-1200BWFR Cuisinart coffe maker?


The manual is available here:

The FR just indicates "Factory Repair" - which means it is a Refurbished item - did you buy it online, Overstock, or Big Lots?

Replacement carafe for a DCC 490?


Cuisinart will get you the right caraffe - that model was specific to Sam's/Costco/ BJ's, and the stores do not carry them.

I called cuisinart customer service, they have a replacement (she said 3 models were compatible with the dcc490). It took me 2 minutes, will be shipped within a week, and cost $18 plus shipping ($26 total)
