Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
Shuts off in the middle of a brew or loses its auto brew feature for the past week.That was before last night, then I went and put in more water than I should have..poured out the back some but wasn't a huge amount. Now, it will not turn on to brew, self clean or anything else..can't even change the time on it. I realize that putting extra water once in isn't a good thing but this is nuts.
I had the exact same issues, and just before I busted it open and started in with testing the electrical components with a multimeter, I discovered that the water intake port and removable filter were packed with 6 years worth of coffee grounds from various mis-brews. This coffee maker's brew basket is not quite large enough to hold the 10 scoops of coffee needed to brew the full 10 cups (because the grounds expand considerably once wet and heated) as a result, we've had issues over the years where it overflowed and evidently, carried grounds deep into the water chamber where they became lodged.
I removed the filter stick (on the left rear of the coffee maker once you open the water reservoir lid) cleaned the filter, scrubbed out the whole chamber and that filter area with a bottle brush, and then rinsed generously with water till no grounds came out in the rise water. It has worked like a champ - I had all of the symptoms folks described here, and since the cleaning, all are gone.
I'm so glad I stuck a flashlight in there before I moved on to more complicated measures. I think the grounds may have caused the water level indicator or a thermostat to mis-read and trigger the shutoff of the heating cycle.
Curious if others find a similar solution for their problem.

In the last few months, my Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffeemaker has started shutting off in the middle of a brew cycle and if I set it the night before, it doesn't start brewing at the time set for. At first I thought it was related to the GFI outlet I have it plugged into, but now I am convinced it is the coffeemaker itself. Since it is now about six years old, it doesn't owe me anything, but I will consider a different model for a replacement.

Cuisinart Coffeemaker Decalcification Process
Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.
