The Cuisinart DCC-1200 doesn't appear to use a thermal fuse but instead seems to use a NTC Thermistor. Like thermal fuses this is clipped onto the bottom heating element and has two yellow fine lines leading to the control board. It should measure ~220k Ohms at room temp and drop its resistance to <20K ohms as water boils. This Thermistor looks and behaves a lot like a Vishay NTCLG100E22245B [220KOhmn] which is available through DigiKey [BC2467 part number; $0.52]
Here is the basic troubleshooting for the Cuisinart coffee makers:
Make sure all baskets are in proper place – especially if unit is beeping.
Do not use a paper and a gold-tone or other permanent filter at the same time.
Unplug for LONGER THAN 15 full minutes to reset.
Clean by brewing 2 oz of distilled white vinegar/2 oz water.
If these methods fail, the unit probably requires replacement – call Cuisinart as they have a longer-than-standard warranty.
