This is most likely that the protection fuse has blown. The DeLonghi people are very poor designers. I have repaired several of their models and they use to many parts, they use off the shelf generic parts and therefore they make a lot of poor design trade-offs that lower the reliability( my opinion ). if you can replace the fuse ( you can get from radio shack ) you must also put in new thermo paste between the element and hot plate. The reality is that this company's stuff fails way to early. I have had many people complain about many different models. I still have a Mr coffee that is over 20 years old. Yes it was made in china but designed in America. It will cost you over $40 to take to a small repair shop, if one exists in you area. I don't know how much you paid BUT you can buy a Mr. Coffee Themo carafe model at target for less than $50 ( on sale ) I bought one for my Mother last year and it is great. Her last one still works BUT no features, strength control, auto shut off, thermo carafe to keep coffee warm without power, clean alert, and more.

My < year old DeLonghi


If the light comes on and the coffee is not brewing than it is the heat plate temperature fuse. You need tamper torx bits to open the bottom unit and replace the fuse, radio shack sells them. I have had to change several of these on Delonghi products. These are mechanical connections and the leads need to be crimped properly or the unit will fail.

I have a DCC-1200 brew central 12 cup.. i put water in the pot, checked to see if the filter was in place, set it to brew, and turned the switch to "on" position.. but I don't hear any noises and no water...


Sounds like a short. Call cuisinart they are very helpful for troubleshooting. If your machine is under 3 years old they will replace it for $10. Their number is 1-800-726-0190

Machine will not brew at all, but is getting power


Are you sure that it isn't getting hot? I am having the same problem, but the plate is getting hot. I think there is a valve inside that prevents the machine from brewing once the plate reaches operating temp (so that the holding pot can't be overfilled). It's my assumption that it is stuck. Fill the reservoir with ice cold water and let it sit as long as possible. I let mine sit a day or two and the machine worked pretty well this whole week.

mine is not even a year old. I bought it 9 months ago.

Need assistance on how to program the timer for my cuisanart 12 cup coffee maker


1. Set the desired Brew-Start time.
a. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to “Prog”.
b. Set the time you want coffee to begin
brewing by using the minute and hour
push-buttons. Follow the same instructions
you used to set the time of day, in
the To set the time section above.
2. Turn the FUNCTION knob to the “Auto On”
position. LCD will display the current time.
3. Lift and release the FLIP SWITCH. The
green indicator light will come on to remind
you that the programming function is in use.
At the programmed time, the red light will
come on as well, indicating that the brew
cycle is starting. Both lights will go off when
keep warm cycle ends.
NOTE: To reactivate the auto-on feature to
start brew cycle at the same time another day,
simply lift and release the FLIP SWITCH. The
green “auto-on” light will illuminate.

Since I cleaned our Cuisinart 12-cup Brew Central with "Dip-it"  destainer last week, it takes about 3 times longer to brew, and it steams outrageously practically the whole time.  Using the same...


Run 1/3 caraffe vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water through the machine.
Dip-It is not the best cleaner to use with this coffeemaker - stick to distilled white vinegar.

If the cleaning fails to resolve the issue, and the unit was purchased in the last 3 years, call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty.

My cuisinart cod 4000 doesn't use the last 2 cups of water in the reservoir when brewing. Any ideas on what would cause this and how to fix it? It is less than 1 year old.


I would go ahead and clean the unit with vinegar and water - I would use 2 cups vinegar and 2 cups water, although the manual suggests 1/3 part to 2/3. Just brew the vinegar/water like it was normal coffee. Don't forget to take out the charcoal water filter, or else it will get soaked with vinegar. Also, make sure the 1-4 cup button is not pressed, if your variant of the model has a 1-4 cup setting. Good luck!

Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.


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:

corvette2

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!!
