Not to worry, I think I can help. On the face of your DCC-1200, there are two black switches. The right one adjusts the carafe temperature. With the white line to the left you get a lower carafe temperature. With it all the way to the right you get the highest (hottest) temp. Of course, in the middle, you get a medium temp. I use mine with the lowest temp so that I don't end of scalding my lips and tongue when I drink my coffee. Use this bit of info to adjust your carafe temps. If you are looking to cause the actual brewing temp I don't know of a way to do that. Coffee needs to be brewed at the set temp in order to break down the elements of the ground coffee. I hope this is what you were looking for in an answer and that it is helpful. If it is, please consider leaving positve feedback for me. I will certainly appreciate it. Good luck! Regards, NormanZ

This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. The may be an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a water filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it or shuts the unit down, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is helpful to you, bean. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ
