Door to filter basket won't stay closed

What started as an occasional problem is happening all the time. The machine works fine, except the door pops open. We have a large rubber band plus a small block holding it closed for brewing : ) Quite a sight.
Is there a part we can order to repair this?

    Worked like a charm. Unbelievable how "junked up" this coffee maker gets! But we love the favor of the coffee.

The door and basket holder can be removed once the release button on the outside is removed. The release button is held in place by two catches on the inside. You have to simultaneously press the two catches inward and the button will pop out. Then you can remove the basket holder and door. I cleaned the tracks and guides with a toothbrush and dish soap, dried them and put a few drops of silicone in the tracks, reassembled and zip-a-dee-doo-dah...

Check to see if there is ice built up around the door preventing it from closing and sealing properly. This can happen if the door isn't closed all the way at times.

Filter basket door opens during coffee making.


sounds like there is a bad relay, that is shorting out, and releasing the filter basket accidentally. Also, check to make sure that there is nothing blocking the latch that holds the filter basket in place.

Rear passenger door won't stay closed


Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

DGB-550BK Filter basket won't stay shut when either brewing ground coffee or grinding beans.. With the ground; the basket pops open mid brew and makes a mess everywhere. When grinding beans, I've noticed...


Not a solution but...

Many folks have reported this, the latching mechanism wears out eventually.
We had the problem but discovered that the door on the basket wasn't getting completely closed. Now I make sure it's closed and haven't had any problem since.
Hope this solves your issue - if not, keep an eye on yard sales, we picked up two at different times for $5 and now have parts to swap out - not much help for a failed latch though.
Glad I never paid full price for it, even though it's a fairly good grinder/brewer.

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing


Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

Door that opens the filter basket gets stuck!!


I bought one at a thrift store for $8.00 and it had the same problem. All I did was put some cooking vegetable oil on the open basket door where it stuck, using a q-tip. It has worked great for over a year now.

Filter pops out in middle of cylcle


I periodically take a wet Q-Tip and clean around and inside the "slides" for the brewing basket door, so that it slides in and out easily. (I was amazed what the Q-Tips look like after you do this.)

I think the problem lies in the fact the basket does not go fully back and engage the latch due to the gunk that builds up on the slide. You think you fully closed the door when you feel the resistance of the gunk, but you are only marginally latched - the vibration of the motor pops the door free and VIOLA! coffee-ala'-counter!

I think the gunk comes from very fine ground coffee dust, mixed with water that condenses from the steam that envelops the unit during brewing.

I also clean every surface in the brewing basket area with a wet paper towel,
