See post on Cuisinart customer service. The tube can be purchased at Lowes. Clear vinyl 1/2" O.D., 3/8" I.D. The compression clamp will have to be replaced as well.
I used a 1/2" hose clamp available at any auto parts store.

How to repair a DCC-1200 Cuisinart Coffee Maker


Problem #1 - DCC-1200 makes steam - not coffee. Reason: the check valve is plugged - water will not flow.<br /><br />Solution #1 - Remove the check valve located inside one of the 2 silicon tubing hoses inside the coffee maker...and clean the valve. You must remove the bottom of the coffee maker (problem #3). Note: the check valve is not plugged due to hard water minerals. It plugs up from coffee grounds and coffee residue. Thus...use the charcoal filter, and clean with 50% white vinegar on a regular basis.<br /><br />Problem #2 - Removing the check valve located inside the tubing. You must cut it out and thereby destroy the tubing. Replacement is required.<br /><br />Solution #2 - purchase one foot of 3/8" SILICON tubing over the Internet from Rebel Brewer at <a href="http://www.rebelbrewer.com">www.rebelbrewer.com</a>. Silicon is required to handle the high temperature.<br /><br />Problem #3 - removing the bottom plate. It is secured with four "custom" torex screws that cannot be removed with a normal torex tool. (not designed to be easily removed). <br /><br />Solution #3 - I used a 1/4" drill bit and drilled off the heads of the screws. The bottom is easily removed. I was able to snap it back into place. You can use some silicon caulk at the 4 corners for a more secure fitting.<br /><br />Good Luck - not too difficult<br /><br />Camanokid

If you have had this machine for awhile sounds like there is calcium deposits built up. Try cleaning the disbursement head as well as the tube. also run some vinegar through the system a couple of times.Let me know if this helps.

Coffee maker is extremely slow with lots of steam. I fill with 12 cups and am lucky to get 7 cups of very strong coffee. I've cleaned with vinegar three times to no avail.

It leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker


The heating element in these is underneath the hot plate. The water gets to the heater through two short pieces of hose, and sometimes this hose leaks. Sometimes the connection between the hose and the heater leaks also.
If you are so inclined, you can take off the bottom plate and replace the hose pieces, or try to tighten the connections to the heater.

Heating element/brewer tube leaks, Where can I get a new one?


Take the old one to any hardware store and match it up with a hose that is approved for potable water.

My DGB-500 Cuisinart Grind & Brew coffee maker leaks coffee


I found out that internally the water line that comes off of the heating element is made of a rubber/silicon material. The heating element is so hot that it scorches or dryrots the tube and it cracks causeing leaking. Sometimes it comes pouring out and other times it just is enough to make it a pain. I have taken the time to get my specialized screwdriver set and take off the bottom of the pot, but have not been able to find a replacement tube for it. (They also made the tube so that you dont have enough to cut the broken end off and put it back on and if you COULD do it, they also put an "X" in the original tube so if you cut it and try to put it on you cannot push it on far enough. Other than this, it was a great coffee brewer for me for the past four years. (Put baking soda and water paste on the coffee stain if you have formica counters. A few times of doing that and the stain will come clean)

Cuisinart DCC-1200 BW Model leaks by morning if I put water in the night before to have coffee made by program. More water on the counter almost as in the pot. Any solutions? Bought 4/5/07


Order 1 foot of 5236K73 "High-Temperature Silicone Rubber Tubing" from McMaster-Carr. Put the old check valve in the new tubing in the same location and direction as originally installed.
