Question about Cuisinart DTC-975 Coffee Maker

Open Question

Coffee maker (DTC-975) shuts off and beeps about 20 seconds

Coffee maker shuts off and beeps about 20 seconds after it has been turned on.

I checked continuity on the 120 volt heating circuit including the thermo switch . It had a complete circuit.
I also removed and bench checked the the Potter & Brumsfield relay. It is working properly.
I performed in circuit tests on most of the components on the main circuit board. Can not find any bad parts.

I don't think you are putting the top on correctly. Make sure you thread it correctly - it is sort of fussy! I did that once and water went all over the place!

SOURCE: Coffee maker doesn't turn on when you flip the switch.

Hello evc622,
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. The may be 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 or shuts the unit down, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is helpful to you, evc. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

SOURCE: 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
2. Program the coffeemaker to shut off from
zero to four hours after brew cycle is
finished by using the “Hour” and “Minute”

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 hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My coffee pot is black inside & using vinegar does not clean it

Use a coffee pot cleaner such as Dip-IT. Walmart sells a product in the coffee maker area that is for cleaning the coffee maker. It cleans the coffee pots too.

DTC 975 Won't brew and beep comes on in about 1 minute. What is the problem/resolution?

I returned my first one because it was under warranty and now the new one is doing it too. I think that it clogs with scale very quickly and the vinegar and water cleaning does not work. It turns itself off and will not reset, even though we unplugged it overnight and then tried again (as was suggested by others). I am going to take it apart and see if I can fix it, because I might as well, since it is broken. If that doesn't work, I will just have to buy a new one, AND NOT A CUISINART!

Run a mixture of 50% vinegar and 50% water through the unit, just like it was coffee. For the caraffe, let the vinegar sit in the caraffe for 20 minutes, and then scrub it out with a soft sponge.
