Automatic Grind not working

I have a Cuisinart DGB-300 Grind and Brew Coffeemaker. The automatic grind is not working. I have follwed the steps in the manual. It doesn't make any noise as if attempting to grind. The grind processed is by-passed going straight into the brew mode.

    Grind motor will NOT turn. It seems to be locked or "frozen". How do

    We have the same problem with our grinder. No noise, No grinding. Just straight to brewing. Makes a mean cup of hot water though. There was nothing in our manual on how to troubleshoot this problem so we came straight to you. My sister-in-law is about to buy a grinder so hope you come up with a solution quickly as that is exactly why we bought this particular machine, so we would not have to have a separate grinder sitting around.

    None. There is no noise and the manual offers no intructions. So here I am.

My grinder was not working properly, because the blade was not rotating freely. So we carefully chipped away some caked on coffee residue. Then it worked for awhile, but started to sound weird and only partially grind the coffee. So we applied a small amount of vegetable oil to the blade and let it seep down a little, and that was very succcessful! Just needed a lube job!

This coffee maker (10 c maker with grinder) beeps it's done every few minutes with water left. we have to brew about 5 times for a full pot, what gives?

Presume this is the Grind & Brew Thermal™ 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Model # DGB-600BCC

An instruction booklet is available here:

Review the sections beginning on page 11 of the pdf on Turning Off the Grind Function (if not using the grind feature) and Making Coffee.

Make sure you are turning off the grind function if using preground coffee and that the reservoir lid is securely closed.

Check the Cups Setting button; is sounds like the 1-4 feature may be turned on.

try cleaning the grind chute again. if problem persists:
this is a cronic problem with the DGB900BC even after cleaning. the problem is the gate or trap to the grounds needs to open/remain open during grinding or all backs up and jams. my unit opens the door (correctly) during the rotation but closes just before grinding (over-rotation?). Cuisinart is not aware of this problem (800-726-0190). please call them; i just have.
