My DCC 3200 is leaking out the bottom. It is only seven months old.

    Hi Ginny! Sorry that I didn't see your post a year ago. Anyway, you will probably have the leak issue again so, here is a very helpful link:

    http://www.shareyourrepair.com/2017/12/r...

    I have the same Cuisinart Coffee Maker as you, the DCC-3200; mine started leaking yesterday. I found the above link and the Gentleman goes into great detail on how to fix your cracked hoses and where to get replacement hoses from Amazon. The link is worth reading/watching prior to sending your coffee maker in for repairs or throwing it out and buying a new one.

    I hope this helps others with leaking Cuisinart Coffee Makers. It definitely helped me.

    Good luck in the future Ginny and good luck to all others as well!

Talked to Cuisinart tech support and they told me to unplug and leave it for 2 hours... that resets it to the factory defaults.
It looks like a thermal fuse might have blown inside your appliance.
If a thermal fuse has failed, there is probably another problem inside.
If the appliance is 4 months old, still cover under manufacturers warranty, Call the Cuisinart customer service to ask them where to find an authorized service center.
Hope this works for you.

Hello dhubert14,
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. This an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a 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, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is really helpful to you, dhubert14. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

Make sure that when you do the vinegar solution, you do at least 4 cups of white vinegar, and fill it up the rest of the way (max fill line) with water. The manual says to "fill to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water," which lots of people misunderstand, and think it means "1/3 CUP vinegar and 2/3 CUP water," which is not the case. It means 1/3 of your 12 cups (and 1/3 times 12 is 4 cups) of vinegar, and 2/3 of your 12 cups (aka, fill it up the rest of the way) of water.

You might have to let it soak for an hour before you try to brew it--this lets the vinegar work at the calcium buildup a LOT better (kind of like soaking your pots and pans before you try to clean them), but it should definitely work for you. If not, call Cuisinart's tech support (1 800 726 0190) and they might be able to get you a replacement :)

SOURCE: water leaks from bottom of unit when making a pot of coffee

There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

Your coffee maker has a 3 year warranty, If you completed and sent in the warranty card then you are covered and you need to contact the manufacture for warranty service. To obtain warranty service, please call the Consumer Service Center toll-free at 800-726-0190 or write to:
Cuisinart 150 Milford Road East Windsor, NJ 08520 If it is not keeping the coffee hot then the heating plate element is defective or the heating plate temperature control knob needs to be turn up. There are 3 settings on the temperature control, L, M, & H. Set the control to H. You also must leave the on/off switch on for the heating plate to stay on. Here is the owner's manual. http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/dcc-1200.pdf If you want to repair it yourself, know that taking it apart will void the warranty. The element in the heating plate may be defective if all else is ok. This unit cannot be repaired by the consumer because you cannot get the parts so you would have to just buy a new one. Hopefully you sent in your warranty card and can get warranty service.

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.

How to fix the leak problem with Cuisnart coffee maker


Hi, my husband just this morning spotted the cause of the leaking problem with our DCC-2750 coffee maker. The coffee filter basket holder has a little handle loop that lines up with the 5:00 position. You have to PUSH DOWN AND LOCK IT INTO PLACE which opens the drainage hole at the bottom, allowing the liquid to go into the pot. Closing the lid is probably supposed to do this but sometimes doesn't (the manual says "press firmly on cover to be sure it closes securely").

Hope this helps someone else....

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?


Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

Clean the pot by brewing a full pot of undiluted vinegar, then rinsing it by brewing 2 full pots of water through it. Also, change the charcoal filter on a regular basis. We clean the pot this way every month and replace the filter every 2 months.

Pot stops brewing before empty


Hello jearle0249,
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. 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, jearle. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

Shuts off mid-cycle


Hello d_a_laroque,
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to still solve the problem. The shutting down mid cycle is an indication that something may be plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a 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.

Coffee tastes like plastic!


We have had our DCC-1200 for 3 months. The plastic taste occurs about every 3rd pot, and it does NOT get better. We've wasted over a pound of coffee. Cuisinart says we are the only people in the world with the problem. Well, I guess not...

Leaks at bottom


look for leaks up at the top by the top hinge.

mine leaks there. apparently a gasket is missing or just not tight enough.

you should see bubbles come out and see water go into the filter cone but some of it leaks down the inside (near the pot inside) and out the bottom of the maker and appears to be leakng from the bottorm.

Wow, I can see your question is very old. Do you still own your machine and if so have you resolved your problem with it? I would contact Cuisinart Warranty at 1-800-726-0190 and ask them what they can do for you. There is a limited three year warranty on the unit from the day you purchased it.
