Question about Cuisinart Grind and Brew 10 Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Cuisinart Coffee maker: no power coming into unit. When I took the bottom off to look at the circuit board I shorted the circuits and saw that there is power coming into the board, but it isn't getting distributed. In addition the LCD screen isn't displaying anything even when I short the circuits.

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.

Our Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee maker has been turing off during the brew cycle. We just keep flipping the switch to the ON position but I have no clue why it would be doing this.


Might be a sign of a circuit failure, or that it's not getting the amount of electricity it needs. Does it run along side another power hungry appliance or device? Could also be moisture has entered a section it shouldn't and is shorting somehting ouit.

My gps8 garwin golf gps just stopped working no power its not batteries and ideas wont power up at all


Open the unit up and remove the mother board. Place the board on a cookie sheet propped/supported by a small wad of paper at each corner. Do not let the board touch the cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 170 degrees and bake the board for 10 minutes.
I did the same for the board in my Cuisinart coffee maker. Read it on a fix it site for Cuisinart when my coffee maker would not come on. Both my coffee maker and GOLFLOGIX GPS8 are working fine.

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC suddenly decided not to burr/grind coffee. It doesn't turn on. Electrical recepticle is hot and the device is plugged in. I've cleaned all of the connections/buttons/grooves so...


Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave

Delonghi DCU72 refused to heat on 6th use.


I have the same problem.
Being an electrical engineer, I would like to debug the circuit card.
However, I would like to brew coffee also.
I disassembled the bottom of the coffee maker, and unscrewed
the bracket holding the circuit card.
I cut the input power and ground wires from the plug to the card, and detached its modular wire to the heating element.
I removed the card
(to take to lab for further debugging).
Then I bought some .25 inch modular tab connectors at the hardware store and attached one to the power wire formerly going to the circuit card. I attached this to the heating element.
I covered the spare ground wire with electric tape.
Now I have a coffee maker which brews coffee again (except that I must pull the plug to shut it off).
If I figure out what is wrong with the circuit card, I will update you.
