I have a 1600 with the same problem. The problem is due to a poorly designed fit between the carafe and the drain plunger in the coffee basket. If you lift the carafe slightly, you will see the plunger has a long way to go. If you have the tendency to push the carafe fully to the back of the hotplate it makes this worse. OK, so now the fix, which worked for me. Find a small piece of plastic to glue to the top of the carafe lid. You just need a small dimple to push the coffee basket spring in further when you in sert the carafe on the hotplate. You should experiment a little first to see how thick it needs to be. Overall it's a poorly designed combination and someone needs a lesson in tolerancing.

I have the same pot except for the 10 cup model, and it has been doing the same thing. I realized that I have never changed the charcoal filter inside, and I believe that may have been the problem. I removed the filter, ran vinegar through the pot several times as well as cleaned some nasty looking scum out of the water reservoir. I ran 3 pots of water after that. The problem has not recurred so far. I think it may be fixed although time will tell for certain.

Called the company and the representative told me that on the CBC 1600 series, it is intentially designed to turn off the hot plate after brewing because the stainless steel carafe will keep the coffee hot. If you are experiencing poor heating, her suggestion was to preheat the pot with really hot water before putting it under the basket. I can't help wondering if they have turned a bug into a feature
