Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
Can you provide some hints for replacing the water hose, assuming that it this can be performed by the user
Please get the model and the date code from the bottom of the machine and contact customer serivce. Depending on the date code, there might be a seal kit available or the machine can be replaced at no cost if 3 years old or less. If it is over 3 years old and the seal kit isn't available, the machine will be replaced at a reduced price.

SOURCE: Unit leaks out of the bottom
Mine just developed the same problem. Me being an engineer, I decided to take it apart and found the problem. There is an aluminum tube shaped like a "C" with a heating element inside of it. Water flows through this metal tube, is heated, and then pushed via steam pressure. There is a metal brace that holds this "C" piece securely to the bottom of the machine. This brace is sharp and overtightened, which caused a small hole to form in the metal, causing the leak (in my machine of course). I am currently researching how to patch aluminum so I can hopefully fix it.

The tool is a special tool that is either meant to be vandal or idiot proof. Being one of the aforementioned I bought a set of these special tools at Sears. The first problem is Cuisinart recesses the hole so much that my tool can not remove the screw. I tried widening the hole using a drill bit but it cracked and broke.
As for using a hose from a hardware store, I have been there and done that. The hose attatched to the warmer side melted and leaked everywhere.

Replacement time. a certain percentage of thse have this problem. There is a small, non-replaceable tube in the inside toward the bottom that has become melted/damaged.
