I have the Cuisinart DCC2000. The coffee

I have the Cuisinart DCC2000. The coffee reservoir lever that operates the round coffee guage sticks, making it look like it has coffee, but it doesn't. This has been going on for months. Is there a way to fix it so it works all the time?

Give it a good cleaning. Canned air MIGHT blow a speck of dirt out that's holding it in place.

When brewing it makes a loud noise


I have 2 Cuisinart Coffee makers. Both make loud humming noises during the pump cycle. In my units, the water reservoir vibrates when the pump is active. Test by hand pressure on the water reservoir when brewing.
I experimented with adhesive foam pads and they worked well but...they eventually fell off. I often just push the unit against the wall behind it.

I have a cuisinart grind & brew coffee pot that leaks when I put water in it. How can I open it to see where the water is coming from?


The Manual for your coffee maker can be found here:

http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/DGB-600BCC_en.pdf

'Leaks' are usually caused by overfilling either the water reservoir or the coffee basket or by coffee grounds interfering with a seal.

Make sure you perform a complete cleaning on your coffee maker making sure any contact points which need to seal are free of coffee grounds.

Instructions for removing the grinder and filter baskets are contained within your manual.

Cuisinart COD 4000 coffeemaker


Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should. Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary. The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

Cuisinart DCC2000/how to set it to keep coffee warm for 4 hrs


From my Cuisinart DCC-2000 Series Manual: The AUTO OFF feature is used to shut off the coffeemaker at a preset time, anywhere from 0 to 4 hours.

To program the Variable AUTO OFF:
1. Turn the function knob to "Auto Off". 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" buttons (see "TO SET THE TIME").

TO SET THE TIME:
1. Turn the function knob to "Clock".
a. SET HOUR: Press and hold the "Hour" button to scroll through numbers quickly. When number displayed approaches the desired setting, press and release (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time. After setting the correct hour, the default will be the last time set unless power is shut off.
NOTE: When the number count passes 12, the PM light will be displayed on the LCD.

b. SET MINUTES: Press and hold the "Minute" button to scroll through numbers quickly. When number displayed approaches the disired setting, press and release (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time. After setting the correct minute, the default will be the last time set unless power is shut off. To finish setting time, turn the FUNCTION KNOB to any other setting or simply wait until the numerals stop blinking.

(P.S. The picture of the coffeemaker shown above on this page is not the correct model I have as a DCC-2000. The picture shown has a coffee pot. The DCC2000 has a coffee reservoir and a dispensing lever for dispensing coffee into mug or cup.)

Cuisinart DCC-1150 series coffee pot how to clean reservoir


Hello dhubert14,
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. This an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is really helpful to you, dhubert14. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

Cuisinart DCC2000-won't turn on


Hi wd,
My recent experience(s) is the clock/timer is malfunctioning and there's really nothing servicable, i.e.: nothing thet you can solve locally. If you're still within the Warranty period, your only recourse is to call the Cuisinart folks for a Return Authorization (RA) and have them ship you a new unit.

However not to be the bearer of doom, the Replacement Unit's Warranty will only cover the remainder of the Initial Unit. And the Replacement Unit may begin to show the same symptoms after 6 to 12 months.

Not to be misunderstood, As a "dyed-in-the-wool coffee person", I loved and depended on my DCC2000(s), both of them. My third replacement is a Bunn commercial unit (at about 3x the price, no bells, no whistles, no timers, etc.. that consistently delivers 10 cups in 3-4 minutes...
Nuff Sed

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


I have the same problem with the exact same coffee maker I have tried pushing the 1-4 cups button. That worked for a couple weeks, now it is back to only brewing half the water in reservoir whether I push the 1-4 button or not. It is very annoying.
