I tried all of these suggestions without much success. I also tried changing the water filter, which helped -- once. What finally worked was setting the machine to "auto off after 1 hour," or simply turning the machine off after I was done using it for the moment. I tried this because I had recently removed the "auto-shut off," thinking to leave it on all the time during a long weekend at home. The machine had to have been on at least 12 hours straight. That solved the problem -- no more stalling! It must have to do with a safety setting.

I too am having trouble with my Cuisinart SS-700. It has never worked since I purchased it. When I press "brew" water continuously pours out until you turn it off or unplug it. The water is cold, not hot. I am told it is a water flow meter failure....any thoughts or ideas how to fix this?

I tried to return it to Nomorerack.com where I bought it but they wouldn't take it back because it was after 2 weeks. Cuisinart will not honor the warranty because it was purchased from Nomorerack.com - they say they don't know where Nomorerack gets their product from! I will never buy from them again!! So my only choices are to fix it or be out the money I spent...

I was having a no water issue as well as a ticking sound with my Cuisinart as well. It is just over the 3 year mark so I thought I might have to shop for a new brewer. I came across this thread and followed the instructions from Laethageal as well as cleaning the upper needle orifices with a paper clip followed by a thorough de-scaling with white vinegar. I figured I might as well cover all bases.

There was a noticeable film on the strainer inside of the hose assembly so that was likely at least a cause of the overall problem. AND the cleaning although did produce some hard pieces of residue in the process this was mostly due to the reaming with the paper clip.

I bought this unit because of the 3 year warranty as well as Cusinart's reputation for solid manufacturing. I really got tired of buying replacement appliances over the years (toasters, coffee pots, griddles, fryers and the list goes on and on, as well as 3 Keurig machines) so I figured I would try and get a quality item.

It really sucks that this strainer is placed where it is since a lot of consumers would not be able to effect a fairly easy repair (actually a cleaning).

I hope this helps others. Thanks for the original post with the disassembly and cleaning instructions.

I recently bought my cuisinart a couple of months ago. Today this morning I wake up to hearing it run and pouring out hot water. I did not turn it on or anything. I could not turn it off, so I unplugged it. Now that I plugged it back in, it just keeps flashing "not ready." How do i fix this or is my machine broken already.

To all owning the Cuisinart SS-700......I turn my machine on in the morning and then unplug it at noon when I'm done. it doesn't lose it's prime doing this and works how it's suppose to each morning. It's also easier on solenoids...they last longer!

I followed the instructions on taking the bottom off and cleaning the filter and it made a tremendous difference. We were talking about buying a new keurig this month but no need now! Thanks for the info !

I'm happy my post 2 years back did help some of you. If I can add something to help you prevent any further trouble, let me tell you this little thing I found out:

Using reverse osmosis filtered water instead of tap water is the miracle solution. I've been using it (from refill yourself ur 18liter tank dispensing machine) since I cleaned my cuisinart and never had any trouble since then. No descaling asked, no strange noise or anything. I don't even remember how long it has been but it seems to me it has been almost 2 years.

Enjoy your troubleless coffee!

I almost gave up, I did almost everything that was mentioned on the forum ( descaled twice, shook back and forth, took apart removed tube and cleaned and nothing. Going back to reread some of the answers I came across one that stated she took a steamer and cleaned the screen where the water tank goes. Took my little steamer and in less than 5 minutes the screen was cleaned. Your not going to believe it but that is what worked. I had to join just so I could post this. Thanks to everyone for posting their experiences. Sometimes it's just the simplest thing.

Great tip on returning the Cuisinart SS-700 to like new serv

Postby RKJOAT » Thu Nov 27, 2014 12:44 pm

I have been having the same issues with my machine and tried to clean the unit using the instructions in the manual. My problem got worse after the decaling. Being a Handyman by trade, I looked for solutions or replacement parts and happened upon this forum. I immediately went to work on the unit and found a slimy coating on the removed screen. I washed it out under a heavy stream of water through both sides and blew through the filter. I reassembled the unit and ran it through a few cycles.

PRESTO, BREWS LIKE NEW AFTER 2 YEARS!!!


THANK YOU!!!!!!

I too have been very thankful for this forum since it has resurrected my brewer not twice but three times as of today. I figured that this time it would finally be a pump issue or something of that nature after trying all of the things mentioned here.

I did notice that this time the descale came on after i had just properly descaled the machine and it seemed to pump too much water into the tank. I also got a notice that i could only brew the large size cup and it only pumped water out of the overflow tube and then on subsequent trie I got nothing. It would not even rinse. I was even looking at replacements on Amazon but jeez I really have enjoyed this Cuisinart for over 4 years.

Checked the forum again and the last post was to recheck for a blocked upper needle. I reamed it out good with a paper clip and voila - back in action.

I am going to try and source out a good wire brush to clean these out.

Thanks again to all.
