Question about Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200W, 12-Cup 12-Cup Coffee Maker
This is the second cuisinart coffee maker I've owned and I have the same problem with both. After awhile steam comes out of the top of the coffee maker leaving only about half a carafe of coffee. I have just about ruined a cabinet because of this. Am I doing something wrong?
At the bottom of the reservoir there is a hole the water flows through to the heater. When my coffeemaker did what yours does it was because a little valve that sits in that hole had popped out, and after tamping it back in it solved the problem. The valve is supposed to keep the hot water from going back up into the reservoir. Without it the water backs up, causing the steam to shoot up as you know, and heats up the water in the reservoir. This causes the thermostat to turn it off prematurely. The valve can come out of the hole either if the coffeemaker is turned upside down, or if there is a major buildup of mineral deposits that need to be flushed out -- they can overheat and cause too much back-pressure to the valve. Flush it with vinegar and push the valve back in as tight as you can, then be careful if you turn it upside down.
