Cuisinart dcc 3000..set to self clean and nothing is happening? Both the cleaning light and power light are on. How long does the cleaning process take or is there something wrong with the coffee maker.

Press the "CLEAN" button and it will light up red. Then press the "ON/OFF" button which will light up blue. Be patient, nothing happens right away, but the cycle has begun. In a few minutes the water reservoir will begin to empty. This self-clean/decalcification process takes approximately 30 minutes. Then pour the water/white vinegar solution out of the coffee reservoir, rinse the water and coffee reservoirs and run one cycle of fresh cold water through before using to brew coffee.

I bought a white Bunn GR-X home 10 cup coffee maker at a yard sale. My husband is in Afghanistan and has been wanting one for a long time. I got home and poured maybe 10 cups of water into it, turned it on...

It takes 2 full decanters to fill the tank. You fill the tank with 1 full decanter of water and pour it into the top and close the lid-wait 3 minutes. Then fill the decanter again and pour it into the machine and close the lid. Plug it in and wait 15 minutes for the water to heat it up. Then you will be ready to brew coffee. You will pour in 4-10 cups of water at the top and have your filter basket ready with filter and grounds. In 3 minutes, you will have your coffee. If you have any questions, please call customer service at 800-352-2866.

Clean light will not off after cleaning cycle performed 4 times

Unplug the machine for 20 minutes or longer - don't skimp on the amount of time, or it won't work. After 20 minutes, plug the coffeemaker back in, and you will see that the self-clean light is now off.

How to clean the coffee maker & set warmer

In order:
1 and 2) Clean the coffeemaker by puring in 1/3 caraffe vinegar, and 2/3 caraffe water. Either use the self-clean light or brew it as if it were regular coffee - just press the on button and then press the self-clean button, and it will begin.
The Automatic Shutoff Time can be programmed
anywhere from immediate shutoff
after completion of the brew cycle up to four
hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off,
two tones will sound. Four hours is the default
time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately
after brewing is complete. To check the
current setting, press the “On/Off” button and
the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the
“On/Off” button until the red “power” light
begins to flash. This signals that you have
entered the “Set Automatic Shutoff” mode.
Press the “Hours” and “Minutes” buttons
to scroll forward through the digits until
desired time appears. The first setting which
appears is preset at “4:00” and the next
display will be “0:00”, since four hours is the
maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing
and holding either button will allow you to
scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to
accelerate to the rate of about three digits per
second. As the desired time setting approaches,
release the button and then press repeatedly
to advance one digit at a time.
The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. You may also re-program the ASO
time when brewing has been completed. If you
do so, the Automatic Grind & Brew™ will automatically
account for any time that has already
elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set
the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have
already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut
off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes
minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes).

Good luck!

Red descale light is on

I use distilled white vinegar, but you can use specialized coffee cleaners with this model:

Descaling 11
Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
operating at full potential.
Descaling products are widely available from stores selling coffeemakers and espresso
machines. Only use a product intended for descaling. Mix the descaling product
directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling
packaging. Replace the water container on the machine.
2 Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down,
and close the brew mechanism. When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release
the start/stop button. The brew cycle will fill the machine with descaling solution. Empty
the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
3 Open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. When the
machine stops running, empty the cup, and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness. Discard the
remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it thoroughly and refill
with fresh, cold water.
4 Open and close the brew mechanism again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and hold the start/stop button to flush water
through the machine. The MANUAL light will flash. When the cup is full, release the
start/stop button, empty the cup, and replace it on the cup stand.
5 Repeat step 4, flushing clean water through the machine in the same manner and
emptying the cup as it fills. To ensure that all the descaling solution is completely rinsed
away, flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again.

Cleaning light came on and now, coffee pot will not work

Automatic clean function
The coffee maker is equipped with an automatic clean function. After 60 brewing cycles, the clean indicator/button (22) lights up. This indicates coffee maker should be cleaned by using the automatic clean function and the charcoal filter (17) should be replaced.
NOTE: The coffee maker can continue to be used, when clean indicator/button (22) is on.
• To begin the cleaning cycle, remove the charcoal filter (17) from the water tank (10). Fill the tank with a vinegar and water mixture (1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water) or a descaling product. Press clean (22) button for three seconds. The clean indicator/button (22) flashes and the cleaning process begins.
Cleaning process:
• 24 cycles of 7 seconds brewing and 21 seconds off
• 30 minutes rest
• Brewing the remaining descaling solution
• After cleaning process is complete the clean indicator/button (22) goes off. Fill water tank (10) with clean water and run one brewing cycle to rinse the coffee maker.
• Change the charcoal filter (17) (ill. k). Reinsert the charcoal filter to the coffee maker (ill. l).
NOTE: You can use the cleaning function before reaching 60 cycles (especially if the water hardness is above normal). Press and hold clean indicator/button (22) for 3 seconds.
NOTE: The Cleaning Process takes 60 minutes to complete. You cannot cancel the cleaning process before it is complete. Unplugging the machine only delays the cleaning process.

I did the initialization as per the directions and the water was hot. When I make the coffee, the warmer button will not come on and the coffee is cold. I turned on the vacation button for 15 minutes...

Sounds like something is miswired from the factory. Note that the tank heater switch on most home brewer models also acts as the "master" power switch. If the tank heater switch is not on, the warmer switch will not work, either - this is normal. Under normal conditions, the tank heater (or vacation switch) should always remain on, except if you are leaving on vacation.
