Thanks! That's good to know. I found my manual, and decided we hadn't cleaned it recently. I filled the reservoir with 1/3 white table vinegar and 2/3 water. That didn't seem to do anything, So I took a syringe and an IV catheter, (it helps to be in health care) and squirted some of this down "sprinkler". We let it sit a couple of days and every now and then, turned on the coffee maker, and in a couple of days it went. We put it through again withthe same solution (to clean calcium deposits) and then with water a few times to get rid of the vinegar smell. It's been working well for two days now.

I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:
I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

Hello CJ, it sounds as if you've got a faulty control board. I would contact Cuisinart and see if they can assist you with either a repair or a replacement unit.

I have a similar problem with my B70 Platinum brewer. The brewer was saying that it was "Brewing", but only dispensed a small amount of coffee and/or dispensed an incorrect amount of water. I called customer service and they told me that this is "short cupping" and walked me through resetting and descaling. After descaling three times, I had the same problem and called them back. I was told that I would receive a call from tech support on Monday, at the earliest, but I told them that it was unacceptable and that I would prefer to speak to someone today. I was put on hold and then spoke with someone who put in the order for a brand new brewer to be sent to me with an additional 1 year warranty.
First, try de-scaling your brewer at least two times and see what happens. If that doesn't resolve the problem, call customer service and be persistent. They will ask what kind of water you use (tell them you use bottled water, spring water, or filtered water) and some other questions. They will probably have technical service call you, so wait for the call (24-48 hours) and do what they say. If the problem isn't resolved, call customer service again! I placed a total of three calls to customer service and received one tech support call. They are very friendly and helpful. You are obviously going to be put on hold, so use a speaker phone, if possible, so you don't have to keep the phone up to your ear for 10 minutes or more, and just wait it out while watching TV or something.
