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.
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.

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.
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.
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).
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. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
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. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
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...
I don't know if < coffeediva22 > is still around, but I found this post on SAT 3/28/09 @ ~ 0900 in STL, MO---VERY HELPFUL---called cust serv @ indicated 800# and was told $10 each way deal still good -BUT- rep said:
"did you try re-plugging back into outlet after 1 hour"??? -and- " 1 hour is our 're-set' time for this model".
While I was on the line, wife plugged back in an VOILA !!!! IT WORKS !!!!
no $20; no TORX #10 security screwdriver to get bottom off;no NOTHING!!!
just do the HARDEST thing when you go to kitchen, NEEDING coffee and get NADA-----WAIT AN HOUR!!!!!
