Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
We have a Cuisinart coffee maker that has worked well for years but now is having problems. When you brew a pot the machine goes through the brew cycle then sounds the alarm but instead of the craft heater staying on for the additional hour (or however long it stayed on) it immediately shuts down. I am looking for any help with this one. I have tried adjusting the craft temp setting and have tried not using the auto timer but still having the same problem. If i figure it out I will post the solution. Thank you
To program the Variable Auto Off: 1. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to the ?Auto Off? position. Press and hold the ?Hour? button for 2 seconds. The clock display will start blinking. 2. Program the coffeemaker to shut off from zero to four hours after brew cycle is finished by using the ?Hour? and ?Minute? push-buttons. (see ?To set the time?)

Not to worry, I think I can help. On the face of your DCC-1200, there are two black switches. The right one adjusts the carafe temperature. With the white line to the left you get a lower carafe temperature. With it all the way to the right you get the highest (hottest) temp. Of course, in the middle, you get a medium temp. I use mine with the lowest temp so that I don't end of scalding my lips and tongue when I drink my coffee. Use this bit of info to adjust your carafe temps. If you are looking to cause the actual brewing temp I don't know of a way to do that. Coffee needs to be brewed at the set temp in order to break down the elements of the ground coffee. I hope this is what you were looking for in an answer and that it is helpful. If it is, please consider leaving positve feedback for me. I will certainly appreciate it. Good luck! Regards, NormanZ

SOURCE: Coffee tastes like plastic!
Will improve with time. Run lemon juice per every cup of water for the first month or so. What can I say - it's a mostly plastic coffee maker. Also, try using the charcoal water filters.
