Hi, I just need help figuring out if the problem with my coffee maker can be fixed or if I need to get a new one. About 2 weeks ago we turned it to brew and the light came on and the inner plate got hot, but the brew process never started. The next day it worked just fine, the next day same problem. There is no rhyme or reason to when it will draw up the water and when it won't. We usually make the full 12 cups. Could I be overfilling it or does this sound like the machine is just fried?

Re: Coffeemaker getting hot but not brewing
The parts to repair a problem of this magnitude are generally not available. The DCC-2000 has a thre-year warranty. I would call Cuisinart and see if you can get an in-warranty replacement. I have a high opinion of cuisinart and their products, but this particular coffeemaker, I do not personally reccomend.
Well, I called Cuisinart and she said to try decalsifying again. To put vinegar to the 4 cup mark and fill rest with water and let it sit for one hour and then try again, turning on the coffee maker. More info later.

Have you tried cleaning your coffee maker? If not just fill half of the carafe with white vinegar and let it brew. Keep basket in during cleaning but no filter needed. After running the vinegar through the brew cycle, fill the carafe with plain water and run fresh water through about 3 to 4 times. I do this every 4 to 6 months. I have a light on my coffee maker that lets me know when I need to clean it. I hope this helps.
Be sure that your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker brew control dial is set to 'Brew Regular' when brewing regular coffee. Please note that using the 'Brew Decaf' setting will slow the brewing process. It is recommended that the 'Brew Decaf' setting be used when brewing decaffeinated coffee.
Your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker may need to be cleaned.
the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do:
Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

Hi, I have owned that coffee maker for years. After it brews coffee, it does not have a warmer to keep it hot. It has a thermally insulated carafe. Such as regular lunchbox thermos jugs have. The reasoning behind this is that coffee heated after it is brewed spoils in a short time. (Of course, unheated coffee gets cold). What that translates to for you with regard to no steam is this. As soon as the coffee maker finishes brewing your coffee, open the top of the carafe, stick in a spoon and stir it.Then pour it. (I learned the stirring part working in a restaurant). If you have to wait before you drink it, do the same. Stir it first. Hope this has been helpful Love that grinder! Best Regards, Mark
The CBC-1600 is designed differently than you might expect. The stainless steel, insulated carafe is designed to keep the coffee hot instead of a hot plate keeping a glass carafe hot. Some people like that style better (including me). Some people - like my dad - don't think it keeps the coffee hot enough.
Your coffee maker is working exactly as designed. The carafe itself is designed to keep the coffee at the same temperature as it was brewed.
Pot needs cleaning. Fill reservoir with 4 cups of vinegar. Press the SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light turns on. Let it perk through. It will take 45-60 minutes. It brews a few cups, stops and then should brew the remainder of the vinegar. When the cycle is complete the light will burn off and the coffeemaker will turn off. Discard vinegar solution and run a couple of pots of clear water through. Hope this helps.
Unplug the coffeemaker for one full hour.
When you replug it, go to Auto-Off - change the time from "2:00" to "4:00", and then brew another pot. Immediately after the brewing is done, set the coffeemaker back to Auto-Off and see if your problem is resolved.
If not, it may have deeper problems. These coffeemakers have a 3-year warranty - call Cuisinart to see if you are still in-warranty.
