Cuisinart DCC 2000 Coffee maker will not turn on.

The 1-4 cup light turns on when I press that button but the coffee maker does not start when I move the spring loaded switch to ON.

    Mine is doing the same thing and it's driving me crazy!

  • Coffeencream Sep 24, 2008

    Mine just kind of has a mind of its own. Sometimes it will fire right up, other times it waits 30 minutes before it starts to percolate, sometimes never.

    Cuisinart filter brew 12 cup is not working properly. I need to keep turning it off and on as it will perk for awhile, then beep and stop. So I have to repeat the on and off - making it take forever to make a pot of coffee. The attractive maker does not compensate for poor performance. Christina.

    I have the sameame problem in the fact that the damn thing will only brew when it feels it like and almost never when I want it too.
    Does Cuisinart have a recall on these things?

Just called cuisinart service- 1-800-726-0190. They are sending me a new unit!! I've had the same problems everyone else here has mentioned- driving me crazy! They mentioned these are on back order and it may take 4 weeks to get my new unit- so they waived the $10.00 fee.

Same problem, nothing lights up. It is off and stays off. It will randomly turn back on and work for a couple of days.

Need to clean cuisinart 12 cup coffee on demand coffe pot. How do I clean?

Do you have the DCC-2000?

To delime a multi-cup coffee maker, mix white vinegar with water (1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water) and fill the water reservoir completely. Then turn the coffee maker on. Wait until the unit completes the "brewing" cycle and beeps 5 times. Turn off the coffee maker. Discard the liquid after the cycle. Then fill the reservoir with clean water and turn on again. When this cycle completes, again discard the liquid. Repeat the water rinse if you notice an odd taste to the coffee afterwards. (If the coffee maker still has deposits, repeat the vinegar cleaning cycle and rinse cycles.) There are commercial deliming products, mix them with water following the package directions.

The manual for the DCC-2000 is available as a link here: . The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

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!

Works sporadically

Try this and let me know if it works - plug the coffeemaker in, turn the function knob to BREW, and then press all 3 buttons in the center of the coffeemaker (the 1-4 button, et, etc) and hold them for a few seconds. Let me know if the clock display comes back on.

Hello i have a cuisinart dcc-2000 i can't seem to find the user guide i need to know how to keep the coffee maker on it usually turns off in about an hour after coffee is brewed. leticia

The user guide is available from

Turn the coffeemaker to Auto-Off - by default, it will say "2:00," but it may have been manually changed to "1:00"

Hold in the hour button until the clock starts flashing, and then advance the hour button until the display says "4:00" (remember: this is on the auto-off setting only).

Now, whenever auto-off is activated, it will stay on for 4 hours.

Coffee pot won't turn on

The parts to repair a problem of this magnitude are generally not available. The DCC-2000 has a thre-year warranty. I would call Cuisinart and see if you can get an in-warranty replacement. I have a high opinion of cuisinart and their products, but this particular coffeemaker, I do not personally reccomend.

Cuisinart DCC-2000 12-Cup Coffee Maker shuts off after brewing

Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

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.
