Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
Our two-year-old Cuisinart coffee maker shuts off two to three times during the brew cycle and must be turned back on each time to finish the cycle. I tried decalcifying with a vinegar solution, but that didn't work.
I also had problem with it shutting off during brewing. I tried cleaning by running vinegar through it, which needs to be done periodically anyway, but that did not resolve the problem. I then tried the suggested solution of unplugging it for a half hour to reset the micro controller and that did it! May also need to set the auto shut off time to zero if unplugging alone doesn't fix it.

I to have been battling this same problem on and off for a couple of years, and have been trying to find out why it thinks it id done brewing. I have had some success but exactly what fixes it I don't know.
I called Cuisinart and they told me to change the water filter in it. This didn't work, but I did see some grounds and even a bean had gotten under the filter. I cleaned that out and it fixed it, that time. If you don't have a filter, shine a light down the water reservoir and make sure you don't see anything.
Other than that I do a bunch of cleaning cycles with, Brew Rite Cleaner, Whink Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Cleaner, and vinegar. Don't mix them, just follow the directions on each. Follow with a bunch of rinse cycles. I still don't know which one does the most to fix the problem. For all I know it could just be all of the rinse cycles.
Just keep trying, there is hope that you won't have to tend to your coffee maker forever.
