SOURCE: More Steam Less Coffee
I had same problem after 4 months. very slow brew time, 10 cups of water poured in made about 6 cups of coffee. I used a packaged coffee pot cleaner powder and this fixed the problem (for now).

SOURCE: Coffee is weak
Check where the water comes out under the brew filter. It sounds like you may be missing the sprayhead. It is a round metal or plastic piece that is screwed on to the water dispense area and acts like a little showerhead forcing water evenly over the coffee grounds. If it is missing, the coffee will be weak. Check the water temperature. If it isn't hot enough, the coffee will be weak.

Sometimes you have to do the decalcification two or three times. Then, monthly after that.
Cuisinart Coffeemaker Decalcification Process
Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Have you tried Descaling? In the manual, it recommends Descaling every 2-3 months, even though you mentioned that you've had yours only 1 month. Worth a try, anyway.
I know they carry a water filter thru Keurig.com for less than $18 that you install right on the water pump in the water reservoir if you live in an area where the mineral deposits are heavy. It lasts 2 months and you can buy 6 replacement cartridges for $25. I just put one in mine today and it took less than 6 minutes to install (5 of those minutes were spent just soaking it in clean water).
If that doesn't help, you can call their Support Team @ #1-866-901-2739 between 7AM-12 Midnight EST. Make sure you have the serial # of your machine before calling. It's located either behind the drip tray (just pull it out) or on the bottom of the unit.
