The replacement basket costs around $6.00 - don't fiddle with it, just a buy a replacement part from Cuisinart's website.

There is a plastic gasket that sits inverted on the upper side of the basket. Place the gasket open side down above hole. Place the spring on the pin and push it through the hole from the bottom until it goes through the gasket. If you lose any of these parts it is probably best to get a new basket.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

Cuisinart grind and brew pot - door holding filter pops open during grinding/brewing.


There is a little cover over a spring. The loops of the spring go inside the screw that holds the cover. The spring ends are against the wall and a small pin connected to the button on the side. Keeps the button locked. Cleaning out dried coffee in the are may help and pam spray may keep it from sticking.

Coffee overflows onto the counter from time to time. Have a clean gold filter. It seems that the coffee doesn't flow threw the lid as fast as it used to. How do I clean inside the coffee pot lid? There...


I believe your problem is the filter basket holder is not seated correctly or the carafe is not completely inserted in the unit to push the brew pause lever up. The brew pause feature which stops the coffee from going into the carafe when you want a cup of coffee before the brew cycle is done. When you remove the carafe a spring lever stops the coffee from dripping into the carafe. When the carafe is inserted it must push the spring lever up to allow the coffee to flow into the carafe. If it is not the coffee will overflow and make a mess. The filter basket holder should be firmly seated in the unit so it will not have any play in it. Cuisinart recommends using a vinegar and water mixture but BrewRite Cleaner (Sodium Carbonate) available in the coffee section at Wallmart, Kamart and Target is fantastic. You can clean your carafe with BrewRite Cleaner and hot water by letting it soak a few minutes and rinsing. I will also clean your filter basket holder by soaking it as well and all your coffee residue will be gone with no scrubbing.

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.

Leaks while filling


Mine just leaked and it turned out to be one of the rubber tubes from the reservoir to the heating element under the pot came off. I removed the 4+2 screws of the base plate, reinstalled the tube & since there are no clamps holding on the tubing, I used thin stainless wire double wrapped and snugged to ensure the tubing stays on this time. Note, there is wiring in the area. Make sure you do not short out any of the electronics with the wire if you chose to use it.

I was trying to clean my cuisinart DGB-600 coffee maker. I unscrewed asmall hex screw under the black piece that slides out and a spring popped out. This spring helps keep the filter basket door button...


I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

Filter basket


You can find ODC325s on ebay just for parts since the heating element is shot. I don't believe those parts are for sale anymore.

Filter basket retains water


it sounds like a restriction in the perk tubes have you cleaned I mean deep clean the unit??? It should be as any auto coffe maker should be clean deeply every three to six Months depending on how much you use it. How you do this is take 1/2 viniger in pot and fill to capacity.. Dump this into the unit and brew it through. Then ite recommended to rinse them by brewing three to 4 times with clkean water. now if this dosent work its probably behound feasability to repair
