One year old coffee maker won't brew

We have the coffee maker (DCC 2000) that makes multi cups and keeps it in a reservoir so that you just release one cup at a time. Intermittently the whole year we've had it, it won't brew. Now it won't brew at all. The element heats but the water won't go where it is supposed to to brew. Help!

    I also own the dcc2000..have had the same problem with flipping the knob to start the brew process and nothing happens--the ON light doesnt come on. this has been happening on and off for about 7 months--often there along periods where it worked fine. however, it has now been about 5 days with nothing. everything else seems to work..clock, 1-4 cup button/light goes on when pushed. i just decided to unplug it and let it sit, to see, if like other eletronics, it might reset itself.. worth a try but SO frustrating for an item that wasnt 20 bucks.

    My Keurig coffee maker has become slow at brewing

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    I inherited a almost new dual coffee maker and was told one side doesn't make coffee, they didn't say that the heating element doesn't work either. I've heard that coffee makers can be adjusted to keep your coffee hotter. Is this true and how can I do it?

I had the same problem, only this happened on the last 3 dcc-2000 I purchased. I called customer service today, and they informed me that there is a 3 year warranty on this product. Wow... This time they really helped. I have made 2 phone calls to customer service, and was put on hold for over 20min. each time they found out what machine I was calling about. Call customer service, and don't give up!
the number is 1-800-726-0190. you will need the serial # from the bottom of the unit (stamped in) and the model #.
good luck! Bob

This is my second dcc-2000 with the same problem. I tossed the first one and in less than a year the second one exhibits the same issue. I called the Customer Service (1-800-726-0190). The rep told me to unplug the unit for at least 2 hours adding that this would let the system "reset itself". He then instructed me to run vinegar and water through it to clean the pumping system. I am doubtful about this solution but the rep assured me it would be replaced if I still have problems. It's worth calling CS to get it replaced, however, it seems that this model is flawed by design.

Owned this coffee maker for 14 mos. At first you'd turn the brew switch and the brew cycle would start. Over time you'd turn the brew switch and it would take awhile. Now who knows when it will start.


Over time, Calcium will deposit on the tubes and containers which get in touch with water. Try Decalcifying with Designated Products.
Usually, you do this by diluting the product, fill up the water reservoir, and cycle on the machine, without cofee of course,
Pour out the water. It will probably look troubled.
If the water does not start percolating, just let the water reservoir stand with the decalcification product for about 30 mins. don't leave it in overnight, because these products are slightly caustic to remove the Calcium, but it could damage parts if left in the machine overnight.

Repeat the process until the water starts running faster.
don't forget to rinse with regular water. 2 Cycles rinsing should suffice.
See manual for suggested products or just use 1/4 cup of Vinegar diluted with Water. .

We've had a Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffee maker for less than a year: 1) it stops brewing about halfway through the brewing cycle (with plenty of water still in the reservoir, and 2) the "Clean" light


This problem is caused by a clogged water filter in the unit.

Unplug the coffee maker.

Open the top panel where you normally pour in the water and set the coffee filter.

Gently pull up on the tap that sticks up in the back left corner of the open top. This will free a long plastic part that has a compartment at the bottom that contains a filter filled with charcoal.

Unsnap the small compartment that holds the filter and clean it gently under running water with light brushing.

If there is a lot of coffee build-up, the water chamber where you normally pour in fresh water needs to be cleaned out. Pour in a cup of water and invert the unit over a large sink pouring out the water through the opening you normally use to fill the unit.

Repeat this until you remove the coffee grounds.

Let the unit dry fully before plugging in to run again.

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.

Coffee leaks after it is brewed


The water reservoir on this mdoel is very close to the coffee reservoir - if excess water gets between the wall of the coffeemaker and the coffee reservoir, it will leak exactly as you described. Make sure no water spills out of the water reservoir when your pour it.

Cuisinart DCC-2000 12-Cup Coffee Maker shuts off after brewing


Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


I have the same problem with the exact same coffee maker I have tried pushing the 1-4 cups button. That worked for a couple weeks, now it is back to only brewing half the water in reservoir whether I push the 1-4 button or not. It is very annoying.

Will not brew after a power failure


The parts to repair a problem of this magnitude are generally not available. The DCC-2000 has a thre-year warranty. I would call Cuisinart and see if you can get an in-warranty replacement. I have a high opinion of cuisinart and their products, but this particular coffeemaker, I do not personally reccomend.
