You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.

Won't turn on :(


It sounds like you know nothing about elecrical stuff so safety first, take it to a repair shop. If you have no experience with this sort work you can easily kill yourself or burn your house down; poor electrical work causes many house fires, so take it to the repair shop

Ring the supplier it may be a common problem or an easy fix. If no luck there take it to a repairman, preferably at a Bodum Bistro repair shop.

If the switch is unavailable, they may be able remove it and see if another switch can be substituted or added.
The worst case would be short switch out and the grinder will be on all the time now and you can turn it on and off at the wall socket or fit an in line switch to the power cord.

Ask for an estimate as it may be cheaper or at least more practical to replace it.

If you try to do it yourself you may electrocute yourself or burn your house down, so do some overtime and use the money to pay for an expert repairer or a new one.

Checked all the lids. everything seems snug, but it will still not power on. any ideas?


Have you noticed whether when you put the lid on the grinder and turn it you can hear a " click"? If you do the grinder should work. Listen for that " click". Best of luck, Kolbrun

Jura E8 beans will not pass through grinder resulting in "Fill Beans" error message. Saw reference to Kaffeestudio.com for dissasembly instructions but that link no longer works. I assume that the chute...


It seems withthis model you have a 1 year or 4000 cups warranty with this.
If you are within this, then give them a call - here is the Manual if you don't have it -
MANUAL -

I suggest you start by removing the beans in the hopper and wiping around to remove oils.
Then refill with fresh dry beans.
Plug in and set up as normal
Set to brew a standard large cup - and adjust grinder to coarse setting while grinding.
Do not adjust with grinder quiet - it must be done while rotating.

Make at least 10 cups this way at the coarse setting.

I think what has happened is that damp beans (frozen or cold) have entered the unit and caused the coffee to gum up at the top of the burr.
This will just push fresh beans out of the way instead of starting to grind them.

If you use dry (light loast) beans, it doesn't seem to happen as much.

Just ake sure you refrigerate most of your stocks, but keep a small stock at room temperature in an airtight tin to prevent this kind of thing.

You can actually push down on the bean stack slightly with a wooden object while the grinder is running if nothing moves on the coarse setting to get things moving.

Grinder setting jammed won't turn


HI
When making adjustments to any grinder it should be grinding at the time. Rotate the adjustment setting to a larger number, say 10 an try again. Then if it starts, turn it down to the number you want.

Saeco vienna power lite on nothing else works


Could be anything. Grinder, electronic board, motor. If you press the brew button and it flashes but nothing happens, it could be the grinder or electric board.

Has to be sent in and checked unfortunately.

Fill beans message keeps coming up on jura capresso impressa s9


You need to open the grinder, it`s probably packed with old fine powdered coffee that blocks the outlet. Clean this out and try again. Since it works normal when you use pre-ground coffee, there shouldn`t be any problems with any other parts.

Let me know if you want a description for have to open and clean the grinder.

Good luck!

Grinder starts up but wont grind..nothing happens. one week old


I think this might be because no beans have gone down into the mill. There is a definite difference in sound when it is actually grinding beans. Try emptying the beans out, set it to the coarsest setting, put the beans back in, shake the thing a bit then turn it on.

Programable Timer


After you follow the directions in the manual, you have to press the Program button one more time so that it lights up - THEN it will make coffee at the set time.
