Question about Cuisinart Grind and Brew 10 Cup Coffee Maker

2 Answers

I was trying to clean my cuisinart DGB-600 coffee maker. I unscrewed asmall hex screw under the black piece that slides out and a spring popped out. This spring helps keep the filter basket door button on the left side in position. I am unable to put the spring back into position and screw the small black cover back into place. Can you provide me any assistance. Thanks, Mike

    I feel that even a diagram would be helpful on how to get this spring back into place where it's suppose to be. Cant find one anywhere tho...

    Same problem here! The basket slide was stuck halfway and wouldn't budge. Couldn't make coffee, couldn't clean out previous grounds. Thought a good steam clean would fix the prob. Now I can't get the spring back in. There's a little slot for it, but can't tell (and honestly didn't take note) of how to put it back in.

I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

It's a Torx, size T-9. When I got mine at Home Depot a few years ago, they weren't available individually, only in a somewhat-pricey set of 5 sizes.

The filter basket is orderable from Cuisinart and costs somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 to $6 - there is no service manual for that particular part of the coffee maker.

Spring


Make sure the slot between the grind basket and filter basket is clean and free of grounds - then inspect the area near the grinder motor - use the brush that came supplied with the Cuisinart to clean that area out. Once thoroughly cleaned, try one more time to Grind. Let me know if it works.

Water leaking from the base of the unit.


Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great now! But I must say that I have seen better engineering in childs' toys!

DGB-600BC


I have had the Cuisinart DGB-600BC for a bit over a year. The coffee grinds, and then sometime during the brewing cycle, it will go, "beep beep, beep beep, beep beep..." on and on.

I think I have traced the problem to the latch on the top lid that you open to access the bean hopper. I believe the latch sticks and doesn't close the lid tightly enough. It will appear to be closed, but the latch isn't all the way in place.

So, there is a small screw on the inside of the latch in the lid. Carefully unscrew this, remove the screw, latch, and the small spring. Remember which way the latch faces.

With a warm damp paper towel, clean the latch and the slot in the lid that the latch goes into. Reassemble, and make sure the screw is not so tight that the latch doesn't move freely.

This should solve your problem.
