Not knowing which model you have, here are the instructions for my model. Perhaps yours is the same.

"The Automatic Shutoff
Time can be programmed anywhere from immediate shutoff after completion of the brew cycle up to four hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two tones will sound. Two hours is the default time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately after brewing is complete.
To check the current setting, press and hold the On/Off button and the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the On/Off button until the red power light and LCD display begin to flash. This signals that you have entered the Set Automatic Shutoff mode.
Press the Hours and Min buttons to scroll forward through the digits until desired time appears. The first setting which appears is preset at 2:00. When it's at 4:00, the next press key of Hour will roll back to 0:00, since four hours is the maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing and holding either button will allow you to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to accelerate to the rate of about three digits per second. As the desired time setting approaches, release the button and then press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be 8 9 programmed either before or during coffee brewing. You may also re-program the ASO time when brewing has been completed. If you do so, the Grind & Brew™ will automatically account for any time that has already elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes)."

Mine doesn't have a specific clean cycle, but to decalcify the unit, add 1/2 vinegar to 2/3 water in a full cafree and run it through. If it's really calcified, turn off about 1/2 way through and let it set for an hour. Then turn it on and finish, Remember to run a pot of clean water through the wash out the vinegar taste.

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.

*** HOW TO RESET THE GE 169164 COFFEE MAKER ***

After endless online searches yielding the same results (nothing useful), I figured out how to reset this coffee maker.

While coffee maker is plugged in and the evil little blue light is mocking you relentlessly, press and hold the 1-4 button and the TSB button simultaneously for 3 seconds or so. This will cause the device to exit it's error status and allow normal use of it.

SOURCE: Coffee maker shuts off too soon after brewing.

Hello FloydBob, The Cuisinart DCC-1200 has the ability to program the auto-off function that keeps your coffee warmer plate on after brewing is complete.

The unit lets you select the time increments from zero up to 4 hours.

See page 6 of the attached manual for the full instructions for reprogramming the coffee maker.

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.

I figured you might also like to have a complete instruction/owners manual so you can have access for any other questions you might have about your coffee maker, in the future.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The coffee grounds lihgt and the descale light flash after I push the brew button on my seaco odea giro.


The sensor inside the water container has either mineral build-up (scale) or a bit of coffee grounds stuck to it.

  1. Run a cycle with a retail coffee maker "cleaner solution" to clean the water reservoir, or let vinegar soak inside 5+ hrs.
  2. In both cases, turn unit upside down and power wash reservoir 2X to dislodge deposits that have loosened during the soak.
  3. Make sure to run a few cycles of plain water thru coffee maker before making the next batch of coffee.

My keurig coffee maker shuts off after making a small amount of coffee


You should put it through a cleaning cycle of vigner and let it stand for about 4 hour in this state. After rinse through with clean water about 3 times. The pump may need a good cleaning. I do this about once every 2 months.

My B40 is not pumping water through, and has been used twice.......Help please........ I purchased it online off of ebay......cannot return, but would like it fixed


mcdevito75 here, your coffee maker may need cleaning, with a clean or new paper filter in the machine, fill the resovoir with WHITE VINEGAR and let it cycle thru 3 times, 1/2 way thru the either 3rd or 4th time, stop 1/2 way thru shut machine off for 30 minutes, then resume, Now cycle plain water thru the machine 3--4 times to clean out the vinegar. If this doesn"t help, see any appliance repair outlet in your area, the pump could be bad.

Cuisinart DCC2000/how to set it to keep coffee warm for 4 hrs


From my Cuisinart DCC-2000 Series Manual: The AUTO OFF feature is used to shut off the coffeemaker at a preset time, anywhere from 0 to 4 hours.

To program the Variable AUTO OFF:
1. Turn the function knob to "Auto Off". 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" buttons (see "TO SET THE TIME").

TO SET THE TIME:
1. Turn the function knob to "Clock".
a. SET HOUR: Press and hold the "Hour" button to scroll through numbers quickly. When number displayed approaches the desired setting, press and release (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time. After setting the correct hour, the default will be the last time set unless power is shut off.
NOTE: When the number count passes 12, the PM light will be displayed on the LCD.

b. SET MINUTES: Press and hold the "Minute" button to scroll through numbers quickly. When number displayed approaches the disired setting, press and release (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time. After setting the correct minute, the default will be the last time set unless power is shut off. To finish setting time, turn the FUNCTION KNOB to any other setting or simply wait until the numerals stop blinking.

(P.S. The picture of the coffeemaker shown above on this page is not the correct model I have as a DCC-2000. The picture shown has a coffee pot. The DCC2000 has a coffee reservoir and a dispensing lever for dispensing coffee into mug or cup.)

SHUTS OFF AFTER 1 HOUR


Here ya go!

Setting Auto Off (units with timer only)
On models with a glass carafe, the auto off can be set to shut the coffee machine off from 1 - 5
hours after the brew cycle is complete. The factory setting is 2 hours. On models with a thermal
carafe, the coffee machine shuts off after 20 minutes.
Note : On models without a timer the coffee machine must be turned off manually. It
will not automatically shut off.
• Press the prog button (o), immediately followed by the h/min button (n).
• The display will show the time setting.
• Press the h/min button in steps to set the auto off time.
• Press the prog button to confirm the setting.

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.

Auto shutoff


I'd love to find a solution. I just got a black & Decker spacemaker coffee maker and although the features and instruction manual say nothing about an auto shut off, it is shutting off in just 2 hrs.

The only answer posted to the hopefull inquiries about disabling the auto shut off is rediculous. We all know how to turn the coffee maker off sooner than it turning off by itself for crying out loud !!!
