I've had my coffee maker for a couple of years and it's work perfectly, up until now. When I try to turn the coffer make on to brew, it will beep once, flash the blue light and not do anything. The same thing will happen on repeated attempt(s). When I walk away and try again a few minutes later, it usually comes right on and starts to brew. I know there's enough water but I'm wondering if there's some type of internal sensor problem. Unfortunately, I can't find my manual to come up with any ideas.
All the link does is have you call the Kitchenaid helpless desk. They tell you to send it in to them and they'll let you know how much it will cost to fix. I have the same problem and another guy on the kitchenaid site does too. It's the same solution which is box it up and send it to them which I won't do until someone can give me an idea of what the problem is.

Re: Beeping sound, won't brew
Go to this link armed with your model number for the manual(they help you to find this on the site if you have trouble).
If you get no luck from that then please ask again.
Hope this helps :)

It may not help but won't hurt; put a couple of cups of plain vinegar into the water chamber, turn on briefly until it starts to pump, then turn off and leave overnight - at least, if not longer.
The mild acid content may clear some lime buildup.
I had the same problem, when I called their very helpful customer service, I was given these directions. Take out the tray. Inside the machine you can now see a flap hanging from the top. Reach behind the flap, and you should feel a round object/filter. It has a little dimple sticking out in the middle. Wipe the filter with a paper towel. Put the machine back together, and voila you got your coffee brewing again.
A common problem that can occur with the Cuisinart coffee maker is it will stop brewing, even when there is water ready to be transformed into coffee. The machine still turns on and works like it should, but does not continue brewing an entire pot of coffee, and acts like it has finished brewing even when there is still water sitting in the bin. This type of problem is pretty common among various coffee makers, and usually occurs when there is a problem inside the machine.
One of the best ways to fix this problem is by flushing the coffee maker out with a vinegar solution, which can be made with equal parts of vinegar and water. It should be poured in the same place as the water that is ready to be brewed, and will help to clear out the machine and make it ready to start brewing again. This problem is usually caused by calcium building up within the machine, and the vinegar helps to clear out any blockage to help it start running smoothly again.
