Question about Cuisinart DGB-500 Coffee Maker
I have checked the manual and it gives no trouble shooting to stop beeping. I opened the cover after it was done brewing but still "on" and now I can't stop it from beeping unless I unplug it.
Try the following if you opened the cover and unit beeps. This will happen if you set up the coffee maker and then decide that you want to add more water and coffee before starting it:
You will notice that there is a small white (typically) button on the clear cover of the coffee grinder. When it is in place and the lid is closed, the button depresses a safety interlock inside a small plastic post to prevent the grinder from working without the clear cover on and the lid closed. Quite sensible from a safety perspective. Depress the white button to reset the switch or take a pen and carefully do the same. The beeping should stop.

The grinder cover has a white pin as a part of the cover that acts as a go between for the plastic molded post on the cover and a contact switch in the unit. Without the cover in place the molded post is not long enough to reach the contact switch and "tell" the machine it's o.k. to brew. It will beep incesssantly and do nothing. Get a replacement cover, or jury rig something to act as a replacement for the grinder cover pin. You can manually push in the switch to get it to stop beeping, but it will spring back out as soon as you release it.
