Question about Cuisinart DCC-2000

1 Answer

The unit has started to leak water and is not too full. Is this something that could be fixed without sending it back? It's only 2 years old.

    Thanks for the info, I thought it was something simple since I haven't dropped it or abused it in any way.Could I order it from Cuisinart, or is there some place around northeast Ohio that I could buy it now? If there is a generic size to replace it without any special attachments, I could run out and buy it and save time.

Hi,
You have to replace the dispenser tube.It has to be replaced.Since you say you have used for 2 years.The tube has a bending that will become bad after years.So only it leaks.You have to replace it.

You have to take apart the screws to replace it.It costs very less only.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

My Brunn coffee maker is leaking from the bottom also.


I have the same problem and I took the coffee maker apart to find out why. The fitting for the hold in the black pastic that the water flows through to get into the stainless steel tank may not have a tight fitting with the plastic and that's where I had water leakage. I used some silicone sealant to fix the leak and the water stopped leaking!

Cold water trickles, hot water fills fast as normal


where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the unit


The tune up kit that I ordered arrived on Friday and I installed most of it on Friday night. While it is nice to have a new frame and the distribution panel and I think the price of the whole kit was fair considering it comes with the parts and 2 water panels, the fix was really simple.

The kit came with the water distribution tube with with a new blue orifice (Aprilaire #4232) already inserted. This orifice is in the end of the plastic tube at the solenoid end. When I removed the old water distribution tube, the old orifice was not really dark blue anymore but kind of a light blue and was deteriorating from 12 years of exposure to the chemicals in the water. What should have been a pin-hole size opening in the orifice was up to about 2mm or a little more so the orifice was letting way too much water through.

If anyone else has this leaking problem, and your orifice is several years old, I would check that first. It is a $2.75 part and may be the cause of the leak. The whole feed tube kit is only $8.75 and includes the feed tube, nozzle, orifice, ferule, compression nut, strainer so if you need to replace the orifice, I would order the whole feed tube kit for a little bit more.

Hope this helps,
Roger...
