Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
After coffee sits for awhile it gets cold. I have closed the top of pot and does not help. Is there away to keep the base hot?
Hello, Tam -
The warming element in the coffee maker base may be faulty (no longer working.) Eventually, heating elements can fail.
You do not state the make and model of your coffee maker, nor do you state how old the machine is.
Depending upon whether you wish to test the warming element to determine if it is no longer working or whether you choose to take the machine to an authorized repair center and depending upon the cost of replacing the warming element, you may choose to just purchase a new coffee maker and send the old one to proper electronics recycling.
There is information here on how to test a coffee maker warming element to determine if it is working:
Look for the section headed "Servicing Warming Elements."

SOURCE: coffee pot warmer is not working
I called Cuisinarts repair center and they had me set my auto off button. It had been set to 0 so it shut off as soon as it started brewing. If you turn the switch to auto off, then when the numbers are blinking hit the hour button until you get the desired hours you want the heating element to stay on. Then when you stop hitting it it will remain at that time after you brew your coffee. If that doesn't work you can call the help line at 800-726-0190, just give them your model number and serial number, the device carries a 3 year warentee

An ERR 2 may be cleared by a simple reset of the coffee maker. This
means unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. When powered back
on, select a brew function to see if the error reappears.
If it does reappear, ERR 2 indicates an internal error with the computer of the warming plate. This may be covered under Kitchenaid's 1 Year Hassle Free Warranty. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available to you. Repair is not recommended, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer.
Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

This is a common problem with Cuisinarts and is fixable.
I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. The may be an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a water filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it or shuts the unit down, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is helpful to you, evc. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ
