    My COD-4000 Series Coffee Maker has power, and the warming element at the bottom of the coffee reservoir is warm when power is applied, but the maker will not brew a fresh pot of coffee.

    The small filter screen at the bottom of the water reservoir appears to be clean.

    I have tried cleaning the unit with a dilute vinagar solution with no success.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I don't have this problem, but my Cuisinart COD-4000 coffee pot clock no longer works...we have had it less than three months. Not even unplugging it will let you reset the clock. The clock to program what time you want it to come on in the morning still works, but the main clock will not let you reset the time.

    I paid a lot of money for this coffee pot and I absolutely HATE it. If I could find my receipt from Sam's I would take it back. I bought a Cuisinart a few years ago and hated it also...why I let my husband talk me into buying another one is beyond me!

    I have the same problem as shohen above. My Cuisinart (Coffee on Demand) COD-4000 Series Coffee Maker is not working. It has power, and the warming element at the bottom of the coffee reservoir is warm when power is applied, but the maker will not brew a fresh pot of coffee. I bought this machine 5 months ago and it worked perfectly until today. I can't even imagine what's wrong with it.

    I have a Cuisinart COD-4000, less than a month. Since it was new, it leaked water if I fill it to the 12 cup level. Can't find a customer complaint or a repair shop. Help

  • evaleeg Apr 07, 2009

    I have the same problem, my cod 4000 series was leaking water for months and then it wouldn't make coffee at all. Called Cuisinart customer service they told me to send it back and they would replace. They failed to tell me that it was on back order and it would be weeks before i would get another coffee maker. 4 weeks later still no coffee maker and they don't know when they will have one to replace the one I sent back. From what I'm reading on the web site hope they don't send me another 4000 series.

  • auntrebecky Apr 07, 2009

    It warms, but won't make coffee. Grr...that's annoying. It made coffee

    this morning and I was getting ready to clean it, running vinager & water

    through it, now it won't start. It was expensive, and I have had it less than a year.

Use Safety. Unplug. If You want to Handy Try, Open Bottom by removing Screws. Find ac Power cord wires and in loop should be a METAL small Tiny Protection Temperature Thermal Device that is Probally open. Your Local appliance place can sell you this as You need to get right temperature. Can Plug in Replacement or Twist with wires for support. Switch could be Intermittent ( Open ) also and a Replacement should Snap into Place and Leads attached as original or a safe way. A Simple Meter ( Harbor Freight ) Digital Meter only $3 will work for testing.

I wish I could help with this.
You do realise that these coffee makers have a 3 year warranty?

Cuisinart does seem to stand behind their products.
Their Customer Service phone number is 800-726-0190
Give it a try.

Thanks cont babe!
I called the number you listed and they said it was under the 3 year warranty (after giving the serial number and model). They said it's about a 1 month wait but they would send a replacement.
I only need to cut the cord off of the old one and send it to them.
The pot was about a year and a half old.

No electricity gets to our Cuisinart DCC-490SA. It's plugged but it doesn't power-up.

I was having the same problem with my Cruisinart COD 4000. and noticed many others with same on this site. I called Cuisinart Service Center, 800-726-0190. I did not have my receipt and of course did not mail in the warranty, but without any question, my coffee maker will be replaced.

Cuisinart COD 4000 coffeemaker

Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should. Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary. The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

COD 4000 - loosing power

Just ot be safe, try unplugging it for 20 minutes or longer - do not unplug it for a shorter period, or you will not get the desired effect (this has a 15-minute internal memory, so a longer than normal unplugging is necessary).

What is the best way to clean my cuisinart coffee maker?

Cuisinart Coffeemaker Decalcification Process

Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Cuisinart cod-4000 powers up no brew

You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.

Unit will not turn on

I plugged in the coffeemaker at an outlet in a different room in the house. Apparently, none of the plugs in the kitchen worked (although) other appliances did work in the kitchen outlets (very strange, perhaps the coffeemaker needs more juice than other appliances) Now I have to have an electrician come out and fix the kitchen outlets...
