Neoprene tubing is also used in cars (fuel lines, etc.). Maybe an auto parts place would have tubing close enough in size. Also larger appliance parts houses may have stock tubing that could be used as well. Good luck with your repair!

Keeping the coffee maker clean

Coffee makers of all types depend on a tube to convey the hot water to the brewing basket. Filling the reservoir with WHITE vinegar and running a complete brewing cycle, then running a cycle or two of clear water (to rinse) will keep the insides of the coffee maker clean, and the tube clear of limescale or other accumulated impurities.

Keuric display doesn't turn on

While sitting the tube leaning to the heat tank had dry material coat the inside and you need to run a pin up the tube and clear it out. Try a new brew run now.

Below are solutions for a leaking coffee maker and how to decalcify the machine?
Tools and Materials needed to fix this problem are as:
* White Vinegar * Fresh Water * Volt-ohm Meter * Screwdriver
Step 1 - Clean
If your coffee maker seems to be clogged, try cleaning it with a mixture of white vinegar and water. Assuming that your coffee maker has a 12 cup capacity you will want to use 11 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Fill the coffee pot to the 11 cup mark with vinegar and then fill it to the 12 cup mark with water.
Pour this mixture into the reservoir and turn on the coffee maker, allowing it to run through a brewing cycle as if you were making a pot of coffee. By doing this you will dissolve any build up in your coffee maker. If the coffee maker is leaking because the pump is clogged, then this might clear the clog and stop the leaking. If it has been a while since you last cleaned your coffee maker, you may need to run the vinegar through more than one cleaning cycle to dissolve all of the buildup.
Step 2 - Pump Valve
Unplug the coffee maker and examine the pump valve. If the pump valve is broken or has a clog, then the water will not be able to rise up and flow through the fill tube. When the coffee maker is turned on, the water needs to go someplace. If it cannot flow through the fill tube, then it may leak onto the countertop. If the pump in your coffee maker is sealed, you will need to replace the whole pump. If the pump is not sealed you should check it to ensure it is not clogged with coffee grounds or mineral deposits.
Step 3 - Brew Switch
Examine the brewing switch to ensure that is working. To get to the brewing switch, remove the base plate. Next, you will need to test the switch with your volt-ohm meter. Touch the tester to the RX1 scale. If it reads 0 ohms then you will know that the switch works fine. If it gives you a number other than 0 then it is time to replace the switch.
Step 4 - Tube Connectors
If the coffee maker is leaking or sputtering then you should take a look at the tube connectors. Many times, a leaky coffee maker is caused by faulty tube connectors. If you find the leak is in an elbow, clean the surfaces before you replace it. If the tube connector leaks, replace both the tube and the elbow so that you can be sure the pieces will both fit together properly.
To decalcify, you will be needing a : decalcifying cleaner and A container large enough to hold the same quantity of liquid as your water reservoir
1) Remove the machine's water reservoir. 2) Empty all liquid from the reservoir. 3) Fill the reservoir with warm water. 4) Add one packet of the recommended cleaner to the full reservoir and stir until the cleaner is dissolved. 5) Return the water reservoir to the machine. 6) Turn the machine on. 7) Set the large container underneath the steam wand. 8) Set up your machine so that hot water -NOT steam-will be emitted from the steam wand when the steam valve is opened. 9) Open the steam valve according to the manufacturer's instructions. 10) After all of the decalcifying solution has drained into the large container (within a few minutes this will occur), remove it and discard the liquid that has been collected. 11) Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and then fill it with the type of water you usually use for brewing. 12) Return the water reservoir to its normal position. 13) Using only water repeat steps 7 through 9 until the water reservoir is empty again.
I hope the above helps....
Good luck.

I am trying to replace the coffee grounds backet and stem that goes inside the maker and cannot find the parts, as well as replacement costs.

I do not know how it look likes. Most of them are like long tubes which is set under a bucket filter made of plastic or aluminum, or maybe stainless. I will cost you to buy it from the Company that sells it. (Shipping and Handling) If they do not have Warranty to return it and have it replaced you are on your own. Some stores Like Goodwill they sell broken ones and maybe you can buy the whole thing if it is working, or just the parts. Make sure it fits yours. Some people can fabricate their own tube and filter using stuff.

Leak from just at the bottom of the water heater (where the tube joins the heater).

The tube probably has a crack and is leaking.
As you may know by now cuisinart does not sell internal parts for thier coffee makers. I found has the high temp tubing. try part number 5236k73
cost is about 2.50 per foot.
Note that in the coffee maker, there are two tubes, one is the cold water going down to the heater and the other tube is the hot water going back up to the top. The cold water tube has a flow regulator in it and this should be cut out of the old tube and placed into the new replacement tube (going the same direction).

It leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker

The heating element in these is underneath the hot plate. The water gets to the heater through two short pieces of hose, and sometimes this hose leaks. Sometimes the connection between the hose and the heater leaks also.
If you are so inclined, you can take off the bottom plate and replace the hose pieces, or try to tighten the connections to the heater.

Repair air leak on inflatable life vest

We used to use neoprene on the roofs of commercial buildings, if you have a patch of material, clean it with thinner, or gasoline, then contac cement it on, we had a special cement, but I think reg contac cement will work. If you don't have a patch, I'm sure you can find a piece on ebay or someplace. Rubber rafts use the same type of stuff, only they use Hypolon rubber, still gets glued together.

Why even mess around with a leaky coffee pot? Just buy a new one theres a ton of garage sales if a new one is not in your budget. I noticed the same thing a little leak and as soon as it would start to brew....I also thought I was just spilling water around the heat plate. After a few weeks of wiping the heat plate I decided to invest in something enjoyable.
