My coffee grinder on my new machine is not working

    The grinder isn't working properly on my machine either. It worked great for about the first year and now the grinder doesn't start. So I open the machine, take out the grinder and twist the knob for the grinder a few times then I re-insert the grinder and push start. I usually have to do this at least 2 or 3 times before the grinder works again. Other times the grinder stops, then quits again before all of the coffee is out. When this happens I stop the machine and restart. I clean all of the parts after every use but I noticed that sometimes the grinder always has a little bit of water underneath no matter how long I allow it to dry. I like my coffee maker when it works correctly.

Who is this mp3doctor anyway? This person must work for Cuisinart. Same posting for all of my searches. My grind and brew worked ok for the first year and then began having issues. Not grinding in any mode. If I stand over the unit and program it for several times it has worked. Seems to be an electrical issue that many other owners have.
Do not need the doctor to suggest that we should have better luck with buying another of the same. The odds are good for the game players not the consumers. We need solutions not marketing alternatives.
Our stainless Cuisinart looks great on the counter but thats about it. Had to take another morning trip to DDs. Tired of playing with this lemon!

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.

Weak coffee


since I replaced the O rings on the brew unit I then found the grinder was not producing enough grinds - this resulted in weaker coffee - replaced the grinder with a reconditioned unit from :
kaffeestudio@web.de
Now the machine is as new and the recon grinder has a quieter motor and grinder assembly.
They are great to work with and sell all the parts with instructions and diagrams - now my 10 year old machine is as good as new.

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.

Coffee Grinder on the EAM3500


We just went through the same situation. We opened the top the Magnifica to get to the grinder and removed the four screws to seperate the grinding pieces. Inside we discovered two black fosilized beans/stones! We removed those, cleaned out all the bean dust and it is working like new! Took about an hour.
