Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
My Cuisinart DCC-1150 is only 2 months old and has worked fine until today. The clean light was on this morning and I made a pot of coffee. After having coffee, I emptied coffee maker and filled reservoir with 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water to clean it. Nothing happens, no clock, no light, no nothing. My outlet is fine, because other items work in it. Any suggestions? and if not, do I need to return to where I purchased it or return to Cuisinart?
Talked to Cuisinart tech support today and they told me to unplug and leave it for 2 hours... that resets it to the factory defaults. Worked for me...

This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. This an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is really helpful to you, dhubert14. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ
