    Same exact problem.... came in one day to work and noticed the coffee wasn't brewing and when I went to check on it the light was on but there was no warming and no coffee being made. So aggravating!!!

    I have the exact same problem. I plug it in, the light goes on but nothing showes in the display. No brewing....nothing. I can't find a replacement part and I love this coffee pot. It looks so classy on the counter. It worked great and then. POOF.........done.

    Now what?

    I called the company and they said to contact JC PENNEYs, well I have no reciept or box......I guess I'm out a coffee pot!

I bought the coffee/espresso maker. The espresso side still works, but the coffee side does nothing. I only had used it for about a week, but that was long enough for me to throw the box. I was going to contact the company but I see that will do no good, so my suggestion is to buy a new one (same exact model) then put the broken one in the box and return it. You will have a new coffee pot, and you won't be out anymore money.

Not sure of my model cooks as it did not come with a box. I did find it wanted to heat the water but would not come up through the straw and out the holes and into the coffee pot. Instead it heated the wter right out of the coffee maker and onto the counter. I decided towatch it and thestraw mechanism was at fault. I took it out and ran water up the straw from the sink and found it coming out the end of the black piece insteadof through the holes like it is supposed to. I tapped it on the counter and a small bead like piece came outthatwas to seat properly at the end of the tube where you slide the straw into the hole dripper. I sealed the hole and wahla I got a great coffee maker that the water comes out the brewing holes. look to see what yours is doing while heating. Is it making a bunch of loud popping noise and water heating but not going into the pot. Give this a try if you cant return your pot..... Now for glass carafs. Go directly to the maker of cooks. Not JC Pennys. They are just the outlet that sells them. Google it on line. I havent fdone that yet. Get them to give you and order form on line and a way to secure your payment for your caraf replacement. Check it at the door when it arrives and dont let UPSor whoever dropped it off to leave till tyou have looked at it to make sure it has no cracks or broken pieces.

Cuisinart coffee pot

his EXACT situation happened to me 2 days ago because it gets clogged. Flush and dump clear HOT water threw the tank several times. When I did this, clumps of coffee came out and the coffee maker worked great again. In was my bad because the manufacturers say to run a clear vinegar flush threw them once every 6 months, followed by 2-3 clear water flushes to remove these "clots" that plug it up. Hope this info is not too late and you didn\'t throw your machine out. :)

Coffee pot turns stops brewing in the middle of the cycle

If this is not an electrical problem, try the following:

Try running a cup of WHITE vinegar (of course without the coffee), this will clear out anything on the path.

Once you do this, run 5 cups of plain water (again without coffee) twice to clear out any vinegar flavor from the path.

Barely any coffee rises to upper chamber after cooking

It's the gasket!!!!! Store the pot with the two parts screwed TIGHTLY together for about a week. Tighten it up as the new gasket compresses. Problem solved in two weeks or less. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.

Keurig B60 makes coffee at random all by itself

Try plugging it into another outlet, preferably one on a different circuit breaker. If this works call an electrician. I have seen electronic devices do all sorts of strange things when the power is bad.
