Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
This morning I was in the process of washing the coffee maker pot and filter. I placed the filter on the counter and went to check on the kids. Well I completely forgot that I hadn't placed the basket filter back into the coffee maker and moved forward with placing the grinded beans in the coffee maker without the basket. I added my water and starting brewing! When I went to the sink I had realized that the basket wasn't in the coffee maker. When I opened the top I had water and grinds floating everywhere. Any ideas on how I can clean up my mess without ruining the coffee maker??? Today is not a smooth day at all and it's very early yet!

Clean all the moving parts with a kitchen grade cleaner and then flush with water and air. The mechanism gets gummed up with coffee and gooey liquid over time.

SOURCE: jammed brewing unit
Remove the brew unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, find the 2 screws above the top piston and make sure the chamber that leads out to the tube is clear.

I had that problem a few times. When the door is open and the basket is removed I pushed in and held the release button while I cleaned that little hook area that holds the pop out tray in place. I just used a paper towel and nicely warm water. Works fine afterwords. I try to clean this at least every week.

Push the permanent filter's basket handle all the way down and then reclose the filter basket drawer lid. There is a pretty flimsy piece of plastic holding it in, though - may require replacement.
