cuisinart coffee maker flaking inside

Anyone else notice something in their coffee cup that isn’t coffee. After thoroughly removing all the parts of my dcc3000 I finally found where the flakes in my coffee mug are coming from. The reservoir, where the hot coffee sits until it is required for cup filling, has some peeling going on. I noticed it after the drying out process started. Looks like paint peeling off the walls. They will send me another one but what have I been drinking. Any ideas?

Additionally, I noticed that the rubber ring that keeps the metal heating element protected is also rotting away. I don’t think any of this is good for the imbiber so how do I find out what is going on here?  When I tilted the unit around more flakes and coffee poured out of that area.

Not so sure I want their almost free replacement.
