When you say it is not brewing do you also mean there are no lights? First make sure your receptacle is live. Kitchen receptacles should be on Ground Fault duplexes which are notorious for tripping. If you have power to the jack the problem is the coffee pot. If you are good with a screwdriver and have a Digital meter, take the unit apart. Check all components for continuity. There should be a thermal fuse (all metal with small can between two leads, has point on one end) check it. If it is open this is the problem. Fuses are rated in degrees celcius, usually 140 degrees or higher. www.repairclinic.com should have the part. Let me know how you make out.

How to clean


mcdevito75 here, Start with a new paper filter or claen the perminant one, you"ll need enough WHITE VINEGAT to fill the pot itself 3/4 full of this WHITE VINEGAR, NOW pour the pot of 3/4 full of WHITE VINEGAR into the resovoir, replace pot in the coffeee maker and cycle thru the vinegar 3 times, each time letting the mavhine cool a bit for easy handleing, on the 3 rd cycle stop 1/2 thru the brew cycle, let machine cool for 30 Minutes, then complete that cycle. Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.

Won't brew


Run vinegar/water solution - 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water. Let the vinegar/water solution sit in the water reservoir for up to 20 mins before you start brewing the first batch of vinegar/water solution. Run it up to 3 times - just like you would normal coffee. Then, run a caraffe of plain water and see if all is well.

If that fails, then you have a busted or damaged hose inside.

Call Cuisinart, because that one is still in warranty - you will not need a receipt or a box for that one.

The ''clean'' light is on my cusinart coffee maker


Let a half caraffe worth of distilled white vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn the coffeemaker on and let it brew the vinegar until a small amount of vinegar appears in the caraffe. turn the coffeemaker off and let it sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let it brew the rest of the vinegar. Then run a full caraffe of plain water to flush the vinegar out. If the self-clean light remians on - unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - if you unplug it for any less than 15 minutes, the coffeemaker will not reset itself. You should be good after that - as long as you do some sort of vinegar/water cleaning once a month henceforth.

My cuisinart cod 4000 doesn't use the last 2 cups of water in the reservoir when brewing. Any ideas on what would cause this and how to fix it? It is less than 1 year old.


I would go ahead and clean the unit with vinegar and water - I would use 2 cups vinegar and 2 cups water, although the manual suggests 1/3 part to 2/3. Just brew the vinegar/water like it was normal coffee. Don't forget to take out the charcoal water filter, or else it will get soaked with vinegar. Also, make sure the 1-4 cup button is not pressed, if your variant of the model has a 1-4 cup setting. Good luck!

Incomplete brew


Sometimes you have to do the decalcification two or three times. Then, monthly after that.

Coffee maker shuts off during brew cycle


I to have been battling this same problem on and off for a couple of years, and have been trying to find out why it thinks it id done brewing. I have had some success but exactly what fixes it I don't know.
I called Cuisinart and they told me to change the water filter in it. This didn't work, but I did see some grounds and even a bean had gotten under the filter. I cleaned that out and it fixed it, that time. If you don't have a filter, shine a light down the water reservoir and make sure you don't see anything.
Other than that I do a bunch of cleaning cycles with, Brew Rite Cleaner, Whink Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Cleaner, and vinegar. Don't mix them, just follow the directions on each. Follow with a bunch of rinse cycles. I still don't know which one does the most to fix the problem. For all I know it could just be all of the rinse cycles.
Just keep trying, there is hope that you won't have to tend to your coffee maker forever.
