Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

Open Question

30-45 seconds into the decalcification process the coffee maker beeps and shuts down.

We've tried the cycle several times and the shut-down repeats each time.

SOURCE: Program light and time flash once per second

Here's the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www.cuisinart.com/share/man/34_man.pdf The water filter should be fine - if not it should be obvious to the eye that it is blocked/restricted - hold it up to the light. Try running through the descaling procedure in the manual if you havent recently - if it doesnt let you run a cycle, try it overnight without running it, and see if it will let you run a vinegar cycle in the morning. Try and pour vinegar into all the parts you can where it would go if a cycle was able to be run. If that doesn't get it running, check that none of the program/time setting features are still on - they should turn off after a few seconds, but maybe it is stuck in "time set" mode or similar. If none of the actions in the manual change the setting, try unplugging the unit and leaving it for at least half an hour unplugged, then hold down the power button when you plug it back in - this should reset the machine. If the reset doesn't work, it sounds like you have a control board fault - best solution is to contact cuisinart; http://www.cuisinart.com/contact/ Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Coffee maker shuts off during brew cycle

I to have been battling this same problem on and off for a couple of years, and have been trying to find out why it thinks it id done brewing. I have had some success but exactly what fixes it I don't know.
I called Cuisinart and they told me to change the water filter in it. This didn't work, but I did see some grounds and even a bean had gotten under the filter. I cleaned that out and it fixed it, that time. If you don't have a filter, shine a light down the water reservoir and make sure you don't see anything.
Other than that I do a bunch of cleaning cycles with, Brew Rite Cleaner, Whink Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Cleaner, and vinegar. Don't mix them, just follow the directions on each. Follow with a bunch of rinse cycles. I still don't know which one does the most to fix the problem. For all I know it could just be all of the rinse cycles.
Just keep trying, there is hope that you won't have to tend to your coffee maker forever.

SOURCE: Pot keeps shutting off after coffee completely brewed.

This may be an electrical issue, but I would try holding in the on/off button for a few seconds and see if it still displays 2 hrs as the auto-off time. If 2 hrs does display correctly, unplug the unit for 16 minutes or longer - do not plug it back in a single second shy of 16 minutes. Then reset the clock and reprogram the auto-off Try one more time.

If that fails, it may be replacement time.

SOURCE: my 12 cup cuisinart coffee pot keeps shutting off

I tried a solution someone posted on this site back in Dec and it worked, give it a try: "I called the company about the "shutting off after a brewing cycle" problem and they had me turn the dial to "auto off" and set the time to two hours. You do this by holding down the "hour" button until it blinks, and then press it again until you get the desired hours that the warming plate will be on. Hope this helps."

Owned this coffee maker for 14 mos. At first you'd turn the brew switch and the brew cycle would start. Over time you'd turn the brew switch and it would take awhile. Now who knows when it will start.


Over time, Calcium will deposit on the tubes and containers which get in touch with water. Try Decalcifying with Designated Products.
Usually, you do this by diluting the product, fill up the water reservoir, and cycle on the machine, without cofee of course,
Pour out the water. It will probably look troubled.
If the water does not start percolating, just let the water reservoir stand with the decalcification product for about 30 mins. don't leave it in overnight, because these products are slightly caustic to remove the Calcium, but it could damage parts if left in the machine overnight.

Repeat the process until the water starts running faster.
don't forget to rinse with regular water. 2 Cycles rinsing should suffice.
See manual for suggested products or just use 1/4 cup of Vinegar diluted with Water. .

Tip

Other Notes on The ICAPP-4


Notes
- the whole process of making iced cappuccinos from the time you press the ON button until the unit shuts off automatically takes about 10 minutes
- once you press the ON button, the unit does not make a sound for several minutes – be patient
- remember to position the carafe so that the handle touches the right front of the unit, and the spout touches the left front of the unit – critical for smooth milk/espresso admixture/ramping
- clean the removable parts after every use to avoid damaging your ICAPP
- once a month, run a decalcification process – simply pour 2 tbsp vinegar on a damp cloth, wipe the water reservoir, and then run a cycle of water – ostensibly, the vinegar residue should be enough vinegar for the decalcification process – newer Cuisinart coffee and espresso makers often recommend a specific portion of vinegar and water – not so with this unit
- several of the instruction book’s recipes call for adding sugar or flavored syrup – remember to add them AFTER the cappuccino is made, directly into the carafe – do not pour sugary ingredients into the inside of the machine, or you will have a sticky mess on your hands
- parts are no longer available for this model through the company directly; all units are out-of-warranty because of the age of the product; but several of the cappuccino and espresso recipes are still available at Cuisinart’s website
- if you are missing parts for the unit, I would buy one – broken or otherwise – from an independent seller, eBay, etc who has the part you need

My Cuisinart DCC-1200 takes a long time to brew now, the coffee is weak, and the self-clean button flashes each time. I've had it for about 4 years.

The calcium can also impact the function of the Heating elements in the percolator tube.

Repeat the process until the water starts running faster and/or gets hotter.
don't forget to rinse with regular water. 2 Cycles rinsing should suffice.
See manual for suggested products or just use 1/4 cup of Vinegar diluted with Water per caraffe. It will smel like vinegar while you do this, as the vinegar evaporates with some of the steam.

I would repeat this process every month or so if you use your machine daily.

It sounds like the valve [ball?] at the bottom of your reservoir is sticking. That will prevent good water flow into the heating chamber. Hence, the thermostat trips and shuts off the brew element. Try running undiluted vinegar [without coffee in the basket] to see if this cleans the valve. Also try turning the maker upside down over the sink when the cycle stops, to "backwash" the valve with the vinegar. You may have to repeat this several times.
