Usually this happens when there is an electrical problem with the brewer. If you will call 800-352-2866 with the model and code date from your brewer, we will be happy to assist you with this issue.

It sounds like your brewer has a bad seal/gasket. Please get the model and code date located on the bottom of the unit and contact customer service. The brewer has a 3 year warranty and if your machine is 3 years old or less it will be replaced free of charge. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced price.

It depends on the quality of our coffee. The stronger the brew the less you might need. My rule for good coffee is to put one big spoon of good coffee per cup, not too strong but not too watery.

Remove brew unit and push on bottom end shaft you will hear a snap then turn and lift small bar lever ( if you are holding unit with handle towards you it will be on the right side), this will help you see if there is an obstruction.

Hello a_kuchhahn,
Yes, it is likely that the water filter is plugged up.
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. The may be an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a water filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it or shuts the unit down, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is helpful to you, evc. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

It sounds like your heating element or it could just be your heating plate.
I found this information that might also help you out. I found it www.fixitclub.com/Small_Appliances/Coffee_Maker.shtml
Basic maintenance can minimize repairs. Periodically brew a batch of water without the grounds, adding a small amount of vinegar to the water to neutralize accumulated acids. In addition, if you live in an area that has hard tap water, only use distilled or filtered water in your coffee maker. Not only will it last longer, the coffee will also taste better

The silicon seal inside the coffee maker tends to disintergrate. Bunn Inc. does not sell parts for the inside of the coffee makers, but a seal kit can be purchased through a small appliance repair center or repaired for a small cost. Kit is about $8.00 at most places.

Sounds like the pressure stat needs to be replaced.

The easiest way to empty these brewers is to turn them upside down over the sink. Turn it on it's side, always keeping the fill hole down toward the sink, and keep on going until you have the unit completely upside down. If there is a push switch under the lid to stop water from going into the pot until the lid is closed, you will have to keep this pushed in until the unit is empty

the exact same thing happened to ours. i went to the bunn website under support, and emailed them the exact same question you have here. i got a reply asking for our serial number from the bottom of the machine. as soon as i e-mailed that info to them, they told me that it was less than three years old (i guess they can tell from the serial number), still under warranty, gave me an RGA # and instructions to mail it back in for repairs. i'm getting ready to pack it up now.

If you still have warranty on the machine take it in to the nearest service center.
Its probably a lose pipe in the machine. so if you dont have warranty left just open it up and look for lose pipes and reconnect them.

Im assuming you tried it more than once and the tank is full when you start? If your doing manual fill pour over the timer has nothing to do with that. If it's plumbed with a water line, before you start changing your timer for the brew cycle, first try the easy fix which is unscrew the spray head. it's the piece the water comes out to the basket. Take the cleaning spring tool and rotate it as you push it thru the tube you just unscrew the spray head from. As your pushing it thru it has two turns in it . Just rotate and push until you have gone thru the second one and then it's clear to the water tank. Unfortunately this doesn't always get it unplugged. Where the tube goes into the water tank there is silicone hub on the part that's in the tank and it can keep some of the lime buildup from being removed. You will have to take the top off and remove the tube to clean it if that happenes. Dont forget to unplug it first. The other common spot for a restriction is where the water leaves the pan your pouring into. You need to remove the pan to get the spray tube out anyway so look also at the big nut that holds the pan onto the tank.sometimes the hole will plug in the center .
