Question about Cuisinart SS-700 5-Cup Coffee Maker
I made a cup of coffee. then steped outside. when i came in the ss-700 pump was running and the display was flashing Not Ready. i unpluged and pluged back in. now it constantly flashed Not Ready... Any idea? i've been reading a lot and cannot find this problem referenced.
I had the flashing not ready problem with my SS-700 Cuisinart as well. I pressed and held the rinse and Hot Water buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds while the Not Ready was flashing. After 10 sec or so the display went off completely. I then powered up with the power switch on the side and the coffee maker came and is working fine so far.

Make sure that when you do the vinegar solution, you do at least 4 cups of white vinegar, and fill it up the rest of the way (max fill line) with water. The manual says to "fill to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water," which lots of people misunderstand, and think it means "1/3 CUP vinegar and 2/3 CUP water," which is not the case. It means 1/3 of your 12 cups (and 1/3 times 12 is 4 cups) of vinegar, and 2/3 of your 12 cups (aka, fill it up the rest of the way) of water.
You might have to let it soak for an hour before you try to brew it--this lets the vinegar work at the calcium buildup a LOT better (kind of like soaking your pots and pans before you try to clean them), but it should definitely work for you. If not, call Cuisinart's tech support (1 800 726 0190) and they might be able to get you a replacement :)

We have this problem as well. We simply clean it as directed once or twice with the vinegar and water mix and then unplug for an hour. This resets our machine for several weeks. Based on the number of comments I've seen on this issue, it seems that the "off" sensor doesn't work.
