The last time I had to do this I went to a 'mom & pop' hardware store with the old brushes and looked thru the bins until I found a match. Seems like it was pretty straitforward to replace them, just a few screws and clips. While you have it open, gently clean out the grooves on the rotor with a dental pick or toothpick (that's the dust from your worn out brushes). That will help it run longer and stronger.

Coffee is getting stuck in the shoot between the grinder and basket so coffee is very weak


Try using a bottle brush and cleaning out the residue from coffee grinding. Coffee grinds build up because of the oils in the beans. I clean mine twice a week and it works great.

My Saeco Odea Go coffee machine grinder screw rotates with on beans but does not rotate when beans are added. Motor sounds like its working.


There are different possibilities for your problem. First the motor might be damaged and is more weak than before that is why is stop when it need to grind beans. In this case only with replacement motor can solve the problem.

Second probably due to long use of oily coffee or low quality coffee beans or other reason there are coffee grounded in the grinder that become like rubber and does not leave the new coffee to pass through grinding burrs. For this either you have to dismantle the whole grinder and its burrs and clean them with brush or you can use a new magic product that you can fin in eBay it can clean automatically the grinder in 30 second see it at the link

You can try the above fist and you may solve the problem in minutes if not then you can proceed with the replacement of the ginder burrs or motor.

The grinder isn't working...the blade isn't spinning.


chances are your motor is burned out or the bearing has gone, it would be less hassle to replace the grinder than repair it. in any case blade coffee grinders are not the best thing to use, they create an inconsistent grind leading to a bad extraction, if youre grinding for anything upto a filter machine then a basic burr grinder will do, if its espresso then youll need a ceramic hand grinder like the porlex mini or be prepared to spend serious money on an electric burr grinder (mine, a mazzer super jolly was over £300)

Grinder blocked


One posible problem is the coffee shute. This is leading aslo to the passage where you put the grinded coffee and cleaning tablets. This might have be clocked from dry coffee mixed with humitity or steam. So you can use a bending brush similar to the one used to clean babes milk bottles and at the same time vacum with air vacum cleaner.
You can make perfect cleaning if you remove the top platic panel and visual check that everything are perfectly cleaned.
The last thing that is possible for the problem is weak ginder motor which have lost its power so it can grinds but not have the power to push the grinded coffee all the way through chute to the coffee group. In this case you will need new grinder motor.
Hope that this can help you, good luck.

Hi, The ground coffee beans don't make it to the basket. How to fix this? Thank you,


First, you should call Cuisinart (800-726-0190) and see if your product is still under warranty. They may fix it for free. I was told that certain beans sometimes won't grind up fine enough to get through the screen in the grinder because of the oil in the bean. So first thing you can try is to freeze the beans and then try grinding them. If you have still have the problem, you either have an issue with your grinder or the grinder motor. You can buy a replacement grinder on Cuisinart's website for about $20. If its not the grinder, and its the motor the only thing you can do is find a spare motor online somewhere (impossible to find since they don't make spares for the motors; the only way to get one is from someone who has taken apart the same model for the parts). Hope this helps.

How can I ajust my machine the coffee is coming out weak and watery I don't get that creamy,strong coffee anymore


HI
There are more than a few things that can cause weak coffee.
Grind is too coarse. It should look like coarse sugar.
You cleaned the brew unit and left a part out or put it in incorrectly.
Grind adjustment is set too high. Turn to a lower # while the grinder is operating.
Grinder is been taken apart and not put back together correctly.
Grinder is broken and the grinds are just big chunks.

The coffee comes out in little logs or clumps. The coffee is weak- no crema.


HI
There are 2 things that can cause this. Either the burrs are bad and need replacing or you grinder is out of adjustment and you need to turn to a finer grind. If you have taken it apart, you are not adjusted close enough so your burrs can't grind fine enough. Readjust the burrs closer together.
