Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
your problem is the filter basket holder is not seated correctly or the carafe
is not completely inserted in the unit to push the brew pause lever up. The
brew pause feature which stops the coffee from going into the carafe when you
want a cup of coffee before the brew cycle is done. When you remove the carafe
a spring lever stops the coffee from dripping into the carafe. When the carafe
is inserted it must push the spring lever up to allow the coffee to flow into
the carafe. If it is not the coffee will overflow and make a mess. The filter
basket holder should be firmly seated in the unit so it will not have any play
in it. Cuisinart recommends using a vinegar and water mixture but BrewRite
Cleaner (Sodium Carbonate) available in the coffee section at Wallmart, Kamart
and Target is fantastic. You can clean your carafe with BrewRite Cleaner and hot
water by letting it soak a few minutes and rinsing. I will also clean your
filter basket holder by soaking it as well and all your coffee residue will be
gone with no scrubbing.

We had this problem as well. It turns out that we had coffee grounds stuck in the lid. The pouring mechanism in the lid is actually a little complicated. I was able to clean out the path the coffee takes from inside the carafe up through the lid with Q-tips and a lot of water.
