Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

After the machine beeps "ready" the filter is still full of water

This is a brand new machine from a retail store. When I run the machine, it will brew coffee into the pot, and then beep. But the filter is still full of water and the pot is only half full. I can pull out the filter, but the water remains.

I ran it the first time with water only (and a paper filter), like the instructions said to do, and had the same problem. I had to actually turn the coffee maker upside down and drain out the water. Now that I made coffee in it, and it did it again, I'm not quite sure how to get the "coffee water" out of there!

Thanks,
Barbara

Make sure the lid is on the caraffe, or else it will not make the proper contact with the filter basket (and hence the filter basket will be forced into the closed position).

SOURCE: Bloomfield 3-pot coffee maker won't brew

These macines have an internal water heater that should be clened periodicly (monthly per manufacturers instructions but I do it quarterly/semianually/when it gets noisy :) ). The machine will have to be disasembled to do this since the tank will have to be flushed when you do this to get the chemicals out of it (vs running a pot of vinegar through your Mr. Coffee machine at home), Depending on how much scale has built up in the tank this could take several cleaninings. Scale deposits can over time impair/damage the heater or thermostat but replacement parts are cheaper than a new machine and the machine will outlast and outperform a standard coffee maker. BTW, my 8572 3 burner was built in 1972, I bought it at a flee market for $25 10 years ago put $100 in parts to get the push to brew and hot water on tap working again and it made two great pots of coffee this morning.

Keurig B60. Brand New used maybe 4 Kcups. Now it won't fill a full cup setting. Maybe 1/4 cup. You reset, get a little more to run through. At this rate going to be a long time for a full cup. took...

I need a replacement filter for my kenmore coffee maker item#69768


If anyone is looking for the Kenmore Coffee Water Filter model 69768 - Sears / Kmart re-branded the filter under the Cuisinart name making them near impossible to find under the Kenmore name. HERE is the link to order them under the Cuisinart name at SEARS (its the EXACT same filter and they come 2 to a pack)

Cartridge is full then also page is printed light


I have same printer (Laserjet P2015D) with light print brand new and banding and shadows on solid areas. Tech support at HP has ruled out that the new cartridge needed breaking in (15-30 copies). They are now saying it could be a fuser issue and since the machine is brand new I should exchange it at the retail store. Disappointing because box stated it was mfg in Japan and I was expecting better.

I heard lots of clicking, smelt a vague burning smell, then machine stopped


IT SOUNDS LIKE A PROBLEM WITH THE MOTOR,WIRING, OR TIMER. SOMETIMES THE TIMER MOTOR WILL START CLICKING AFTER IT GETS SOME AGE ON IT. IT IS UNUSUAL FOR THAT TO CAUSE YOUR PROBLEM. THE SLIGHT BURNING SMELL COULD BE THE MOTOR. IT MIGHT HAVE TRIPPED THE OVERLOAD ON THE MOTOR FROM GETTING TOO HOT. AFTER IT HAS COOLED AWHILE, THE OVERLOAD SHOULD RESET ITSELF. YOU MAY WANT TO ADVANCE THE TIMER TO SPIN AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN NOW.

SOME RETAILERS OFFER NO CHARGE ON THE SERVICE CALL IF YOU END UP BUYING A NEW REPLACEMENT APPLIANCE FROM THEM. ASK AROUND.

IF YOU GET THAT DEAL, IT'S TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO CALL FOR SERVICE. IF HE FIXES IT, YOU HAVE YOUR WASHER READY TO GO, IF NOT, AND YOU BUY A NEW ONE FROM THAT RETAILER, NO CHARGE FOR THE SERVICE CALL.

New Royal espresso machine


It means you have an airlock in the water system. It can occur when you refill the water tank also.
Quite often you can run the hot water nossle untill the airlock clears. You will hear it splatter and then it should be sweet to go.

Hot water won't flow into machine


You most likely need to prime the brew head. Follow the instructions in the owner's manual. To prime the brew head, you'll need to put run the machine without coffee until water starts flowing. One water flows, the brew head is primed and the machine is ready for normal use. You'll need to do this every time you run out of water. Regards, Denis
