DCC-1200 leaks coffee onto carafe and warmer plate


My coffee pot was leaking over the carafe and onto the warmer. I found that this issue was caused by the carafe lid. The lid was not allowing coffee to flow into the pot fast enough. I removed the inner mechanism from the carafe lid (it pops off really easily) and just sit the lid on top of the pot while brewing, and no more leaks! After brewing, I put the mechanism back onto the lid and twist lid onto the pot.

The light is on to clean it and I do not have an owner's manual. Can you please explain? How do I get the light to stop blinking?


Most coffee makers are cleaned by filling the reservoir with undiluted white vinegar (3 cups). (Do not add coffee.) Remove the water filtration disk if you use it before starting. Then start the brew cycle as if making a cup of coffee (including putting a paper filter or the permanent filter in the filter basket and close the lid). Put a decanter on the warming plate. After brewing, turn off the coffee maker and let stand for 30 minutes. Run another cup of vinegar through the coffee maker. Take the decanter filled with vinegar and discard the liquid (pour down the sink drain). Rinse the decanter. Fill the reservoir with clean water and put in a new paper filter (or clean the permanent filter and put it back). Again do not add coffee. Run a brew cycle to rinse the unit. Discard the water that is in the decanter after the brew cycle. Do a second clean water only brew cycle (with new empty paper filter or permanent filter after cleaning again). However, if you notice an odd taste, repeat the rinse cycle.

You can alternatively use the Mr. Coffee Coffee Maker Cleaner (mix as directed on that package). In either case, this removes mineral deposits (calcium from hard water). For soft water, the cleaning should be done every 80 brew cycles. If you have hard water, do this every 40 cycles.

The manual is available from www.mrcoffee.com/Product.aspx?pid=121 , if I have the correct product version. For some reason this site isn't coming up for me today. Check the manual to find out if there is any specific details for cleaning that aren't shared with other Mr. Coffee products.

I hope this helps.

My DGB-700BC cuisinart coffee maker grinds beans but then gets stuck and will not continue brew cycle. keeps beeping. please help!!!


We bought our Cuisinart 12 cup grind n brew less than a year ago. Almost as soon as we started using it we began having problems with it hanging up between the grinding and brewing cycles. It would sit and click. I tinkered with it incessantly and usually could, after fiddling long enough with the filter lid, get it to brew, but it was aggravating, to say the least.
When one morning it would NOT work I called Cuisinart and was relieved to hear that there is apparently a problem with some of the filter lids not seating properly. They are sending us a new one. The rep I spoke with told me that if this did not work they would replace the unit, so at least it sounds like their customer service may be on the ball.
So, call Cuisinart for a replacement of your filter lid and see if that solves your problem.

Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water


The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

As coffee brews it spills out everywhere. At first if I made minor adjustments to where the pot positioned under the filter it would help, but it seems to be getting worse. I can't make a pot of coffee...

Coffee Machine Brewing Water


Try an experiment - brew a test cup, but use only a small amount of grounds in the brew basket (use a paper filter) [or else, put the grounds in the gold tone filter basket]. See if the machine makes coffee (albeit weak coffee). If it does not make coffee, see if the water is draining properly from the brew basket, or if it is leaking over the sides of the brew basket. Also, make sure the lid to the brew basket is completely open and in the correct position.

If you still get water only in the caraffe, replace the brew basket. The part costs about $11.95 with shipping - or even call Cuisinart to see if your 3-year warranty will cover the issue.

Making Coffee


Ok lift the lid and inside you will see a brew basket (it will have a hole in the bottem middle of it) If this unit has a mesh type filter basket you will not need paper filters! you put the coffee in the mesh basket the replace before brewing! if you do not have a mesh basket you will need a paper filter to put down in the coffee holder!(the one with the hole in the bottom!) add coffee and waeter and brew!
I hope this fixes ya up!
