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.

We have the same intermittent problem with the on/off switch on our DCC 2000C......don't know if the switch is bad (we hear it click when turned on) or if the water pump is intermittent. Either way, the end result is no coffee and concern about a potential fire. Today, after reading a post by a DCC 1200 owner with the identical problem, I called 1-800-726-0190 and spoke with a young man who was most helpful. Although, we cannot locate our proof of purchase, we believe the serial number indicates manufacture within the warranty period. He said we will receive a replacement in 7-10 days and then we must return the malfunctioning unit in the same box along with a $10.00 check. We'll see how it goes and post again if it doesn't happen as I've described.

This model has a VERY WELL-KNOWN and wide-spread design flaw. The condensation runs down the back and destroys the micro-computer that runs the works. Cuisinart has been less that forth-coming and just replaces with another, equally boadly designed, replica that then, gee, what a surprise! - also fails in about 9 to 12 months.
Great idea but a BAD design and a less than responsible manufacturer.
Maybe if they caught fire like the old Mr Coffee's then the manufacturer would step up to the plate and solve the problem rather than hoping that their customers just get tired of having to fight.

I have the same problem. Called Cuisinart and they told me to add a mix of 50 - 50 water vinegar and let it sit for up to 3 hours. (even though it is only 3 months old) If that does not work call them back 1-800-726-0190.
