Thanks!  That's good to know.  I found my manual, and decided we hadn't cleaned it recently.  I filled the reservoir with 1/3 white table vinegar and 2/3 water.  That didn't seem to do anything, So I took a syringe and an IV catheter, (it helps to be in health care) and squirted some of this down "sprinkler".  We let it sit a couple of days and every now and then, turned on the coffee maker, and in a couple of days it went.  We put it through again withthe same solution (to clean calcium deposits) and then with water a few times to get rid of the vinegar smell.  It's been working well for two days now.

We have the same intermittent problem with the on/off switch on our DCC 2000C......don't know if the switch is bad (we hear it click when turned on) or if the water pump is intermittent. Either way, the end result is no coffee and concern about a potential fire. Today, after reading a post by a DCC 1200 owner with the identical problem, I called 1-800-726-0190 and spoke with a young man who was most helpful. Although, we cannot locate our proof of purchase, we believe the serial number indicates manufacture within the warranty period. He said we will receive a replacement in 7-10 days and then we must return the malfunctioning unit in the same box along with a $10.00 check. We'll see how it goes and post again if it doesn't happen as I've described.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC 1150: coffee is not hot enough

Using the 1-4 cup setting will help, but that model does not have an actual heating element in the plate - definitely not the right model for someone who likes very hot coffee.

Hello guindonlm,
I recently had this similar problem. Try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

Make sure that when you do the vinegar solution, you do at least 4 cups of white vinegar, and fill it up the rest of the way (max fill line) with water. The manual says to "fill to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water," which lots of people misunderstand, and think it means "1/3 CUP vinegar and 2/3 CUP water," which is not the case. It means 1/3 of your 12 cups (and 1/3 times 12 is 4 cups) of vinegar, and 2/3 of your 12 cups (aka, fill it up the rest of the way) of water.

You might have to let it soak for an hour before you try to brew it--this lets the vinegar work at the calcium buildup a LOT better (kind of like soaking your pots and pans before you try to clean them), but it should definitely work for you. If not, call Cuisinart's tech support (1 800 726 0190) and they might be able to get you a replacement :)

Clean light will not off after cleaning cycle performed 4 times


Unplug the machine for 20 minutes or longer - don't skimp on the amount of time, or it won't work. After 20 minutes, plug the coffeemaker back in, and you will see that the self-clean light is now off.

Your coffeemaker is clean after a maximum of 3 cleanings. Unplug the coffeemaker for an hour. When you replug it, the self-clean light should have gone off.
