Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

No Power I just purchased this this afternoon, unpacked it, plugged it and and set the clock. 3 hours later I went to make a pot of coffee and it has no power. It's not the outlet - I used other appliances in it and checked the circuit breaker too.

I guess you have the manual, but here is the link if anyone else needs it; http://www.cuisinart.com/share/man/25_man.pdf the unit is still under warranty, so contact cuisinart on: 1800-726-0190. http://www.cuisinart.com/contact/ It sounds like there is probably something significantly wrong, not able to check without voiding the warranty - first check plugging the coffee maker into several other outlets, just in case it is the plug that is the issue, try wiggling the power cord at the machine end - make sure it is dry first in case it has a loose contact just inside, bet even if this is the case it still needs to be fixed. Apparently cuisinart are pretty good with repairs and replacements, but unfortunately you have to pay postage - maybe check at the store you bought it and see if they will do anything for you - most will if you ask right and have the receipt. Hope this helps :)

It had nothing to do with the coffee pot. I blew a breaker!

Coffee maker won't brew


This one has two AUTO dial settings - AUTO-ON and AUTO-OFF. AUTO-OFF merely keeps the hot plate warm for a fixed period of time. AUTO-ON is the one that allows your coffeemaker to go off at the pre-programmed time in the morning.

If it is set to AUTO-ON, but is not brewing at the set time, unplug the machine for longer than 20 minutes. Then plug it back in, reset the clock, reset the prog time for a time that is just a few minutes into the future, and then test the auto-on feature.

If it stil ldoes not brew, just turn the machine to brew and press on. If it brews a pot, then your problem is electrical. If it doesn't brew a pot on the regular brew setting, then you either have: A) Calcium buildup/clog, or B) a hose leak (or worse).

To rule out the calcium buildup possibility, let half a caraffe worth of vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn it to brew and press on, and brew the vinegar just as if it were coffee. If the vinegar goes through, your problem is solved.

Otherwise, call Cuisinart and find out if you are still in-warranty. Thep roduct has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!

Keeps flashing 12:00


I just kept plugging and unplugging the coffee pot. Eventually, the clock stopped blinking, the buttons worked, and all was well.

The power cord is hot but no lights or clock, nothing works.


ok " un plug coffee pot, if you take the base apart you will find the wiring, follow wiring to a round disk on the heating tube ,
that disk is a heat sensor , replace that sensor .

any appliance parts store will have them

sensor is bi-metal on the inside when it gets too hot it shuts power down.
