Question about Cuisinart DCC-2000

1 Answer

I cannot brew one pot after another. It seems that the heating element will not cool off so it will not trigger the fresh pot to brew.

Do you turn off the pot before you refill the reservoir to brew the second pot? The heating element should not have anything to do with triggering the second pot. Turn off the coffee maker, change/refill the coffee, refill the reservoir and turn the pot back on. This works on my Cuisinart.

Cuisinart coffe maker does not allow water in


Common problem, it is hard water issue, these coffee makers do not handle even slightly hard water as deposits build up quickly blocking water flow to element. Try one of the many coffee pot cleaners, but if it is as bad as described, may not be enough to clean out coils.

My mr. coffeemaker beeps 5 times and doesn't brew the coffee I just purchased this coffee pot last month aug 2014. what could be the problem


I see two problems that you've described.

First, you have a bad empty-reservoir sensor. Mine went out on my first Mr. Coffee within the first month also. The purpose of the sensor is to trigger the beeping to simply let you know when the coffee is done. The coffeemaker would normally work fine otherwise.

Second, you have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

Vinegar solution cleans mr coffee modelJWX23 but can it be taken apart to clean it better the coffee doesn't come out real fast for long


No. This coffeemaker is not built to be serviceable in that regard.

You can wipe down the inner-sides of the reservoir for a slightly better maintenance cleaning. But, 4 cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) in the hour-long cleaning cycle followed by two pots of fresh water in the brewing cycle is really the best way to clean the rest of the inner-parts which contact the liquids.

If your real purpose for your question is how to resolve the elongated brewing times, I'm afraid that is a symptom of damage to the heating element. This too is not serviceable.

You can get a faster brew cycle by putting warm water into the reservoir and making coffee right away. But, depending on your hot water supply, the coffee may not taste quite as good.

The heating element has gone bad. Since it is not a user-serviceable part, I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

It only makes 1/2 pot when I pour the water in after sitting over night some times it takes 2 pot of water or more to make a full pot


I recommend slowly pouring in about a half a pot of cold water without coffee in the filter basket 5 or so minutes before you brew in the morning. There are 2 good reasons to do this-
1. Overnight you are having some evaporation due to the fact that your Bunn brewer has a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water at brewing temperature... a better temp than most "home" model brewers. This will top off the reservoir and you will not "short pot" except for the amount that the grounds themselves hold back.
2. Also overnight, due to the fact that the water is kept hot, the oxygen can dissipate from the water in the tank. Topping off with fresh water will mean a fresher first pot.
The Bunn brewers have a low wattage/keep warm heater so the actual heating element isn't doing all of the work over those long periods... it only kicks on when the temperature in the reservoir drops considerably (like after brewing). Be sure to let the brewer heat back up before brewing (you will hear it stop heating)
Hope this helps.

I have a bunn coffee maker that when it brews the first pot is hot after that the next one is not. It is the coffee maker that has two warmers on top. i didnt know if would be the heating element or...


While this brewer does have a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water hot for brewing you can get a cooler second pot if you brew directly after. You should hear the brewer heating up after brewing. Try waiting until it is back to temperature before re-brewing. If that heating takes more than a few (3-4) minutes then you probably have a problem with the heating element and the water is only being heated by the "keep warm" heater.

My tim hortons coffee maker is not brewing as quickly..s there a wayto clean it


Make a 1/2 pot 50/50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar then run it through the machine in normal brewing fashion. Place a clean filter in the brewing cup to catch the white deposits that are removed. Allow the mixture to cool, then repeat the process several times while using the same filter. Finally, run several pots of fresh water through to work out the taste of the vinegar. Repeat whenever the brewing time seems to be excessive.

Continually running/heating


Coffeemakers have two heating elements: a brew element and a keep-warm element. When the water reservoir has run empty, a thermostat switches power from the brew element to the keep-warm element.

The keep-warm element will cause the thermostat to stay in this condition until more water is added [or power is cut off] which will cool it down to switch back.

However, if the keep-warm element has quit working, the thermostat may be reactivating the brew element. With no water in the reservoir, the brew element will heat up till the thermostat trips again, then cool down, etc. This cycle will repeat until power is switched off.

I have a problem wih me coffee maker


While bikeman's fix was helpful and sure enough got the coffee maker to brew me one last pot of coffee it was also a sure FIRE method for creating a counter top electrical fire!
I followed the solution's directions to the letter and when the pot of coffee was finished brewing the heating element did of course keep heating to the point of bursting into a small electrical fire and melting plastic to my counter top.
I pushed the off button and unplugged the coffee maker and brought it outdoors to cool off before discarding.
While it is a solution it is a VERY DANGEROUS SOLUTION!
I would suggest that anyone who does not have the $20 to replace their broken coffee maker to either buy a replacement over heat sensor or get their brew from a nearby Deli!
Seriously folks this repair is clearly asking for a house fire!
BEWARE!
If one were to maybe shut off the maker instantly after a pot was made
