IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be taken to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons, including the following:

  1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
  2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs.
  3. To protect against electric shock, do not place a cord, plug, or base unit in water or other liquids.
  4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children or individuals with certain disabilities.
  5. Always unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning the appliance.
  6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest Cuisinart Repair Center for examination, repair, or electrical or mechanical adjustment.
  7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart may cause injuries, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
  8. Do not use outdoors.
  9. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
  11. Always fill the water reservoir first, then plug the cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn the controls Off, then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  12. Do not use the appliance for other than its intended use.
  13. There is very hot water in the capsule chamber during the brewing process. To avoid the risk of injury, do not lift the handle or open the capsule chamber during the brewing process.
  14. Do not overfill the water reservoir with water. Use ONLY WATER in this appliance! Do not put any other liquids or foods in the water reservoir except as instructed in the cleaning instructions in this guide.
  15. Do not clean the drip tray with cleansers, steel wool pads, or other abrasive materials.
  16. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE THE BASE PANEL. NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS ARE INSIDE. REPAIR SHOULD BE DONE ONLY BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.
  17. Do not operate your appliance in an appliance garage or under a wall cabinet. When storing in an appliance garage, always unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Not doing so could create a risk of fire, especially if the appliance touches the walls of the garage or the door touches the unit as it closes.

SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a long extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension cord must be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. The extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

Stopping the Brew Process

If for any reason you need to stop brewing after the process has started, press the BREW button, OR press the power switch on the rear right side of the coffeemaker to turn the coffeemaker off. The flow of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa will stop, the heater will shut off, and the blue lights illuminating the control panel will turn off.

Note
You may get less coffee, tea, or hot cocoa in your cup during your next brew. For your next brew to be the volume you have selected, we recommend that you perform a rinse cycle after a terminated brew.

Adding Water
The control panel will indicate when the water level in your reservoir is low or if the reservoir has been removed by displaying the words “ADD WATER.” When “ADD WATER” is displayed, the coffeemaker will not allow you to brew.

The Water Reservoir can be filled in two ways

  1. Lift off the reservoir lid and pour water directly into the reservoir while it is still attached to the coffeemaker, then replace the lid.
  2. Remove the reservoir from the coffeemaker by first removing the lid from the reservoir, and then lifting the reservoir straight up and away from the coffeemaker. Fill with water, place the reservoir back on the coffeemaker, and replace the lid.

IMPORTANT
Do not remove the water reservoir during the brewing process.

Note
If your coffeemaker has not been used for more than one week, we suggest running a rinse cycle before the next brew.
