Question about Cuisinart Grind and Brew 10 Cup Coffee Maker

I have a Cuisinart DGB600 and it won't brew all the water out. I have to keep turning it on and off. I ran vinegar thru it and still doing the same thing. Any advice?

    My Grind and Brew does the same thing. I am in the process of cleaning it with vinegar but it doesn't look like it is working. I wonder if there is a reset button as maybe some program is interferring?

    Tried turning it off and back on, unplugged. Shuts off after two cups approximately. All of the internal parts are set tight...

    I cannot get my machine to stay on or finish brewing.

    i have the same problem, this is my third one I am returning. I give up. I think I am going to get a Kitchenaid coffeemaker. I tried changing the filters, vinegar, everything, it keeps happening. Maybe because I use it every day but I had a cheapo krups before and this never happened.

We need to restart our grind and brew 5 or more times to complete a brew cycle/ get all of the water to go through. Is there a way to fix this?


That was happening to me as well. I just ran a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water through a cycle. Worked great. It's the first time in a year that it completely drained the water. Make sure you follow the vinegar+water cycle with another cycle of just water.

How to clean


mcdevito75 here, Start with a new paper filter or claen the perminant one, you"ll need enough WHITE VINEGAT to fill the pot itself 3/4 full of this WHITE VINEGAR, NOW pour the pot of 3/4 full of WHITE VINEGAR into the resovoir, replace pot in the coffeee maker and cycle thru the vinegar 3 times, each time letting the mavhine cool a bit for easy handleing, on the 3 rd cycle stop 1/2 thru the brew cycle, let machine cool for 30 Minutes, then complete that cycle. Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.

Coffee Maker only brews 1 cup at a time


Hello. I just talked to Cuisinart and they recomended running a solution of 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water through the brew cycle,then a full pot of plain water to rinse, to remove hard water deposits. The phone # to Cuisinart is 1-800-726-0190. I hope all works out for you.

The coffee maker just quit midway through brewing this morning with half a resoviour of water left in it. I cleaned the screen at the bottom and determined there is no clog. Perhaps the heating element...


That has happened to me, and I ran a full 10 or 12 cups of vinegar and then 3 more times of water thru the coffee water resoviour and it took care of the problem. It is probably overdue for a cleaning.

Cuisinart coffee on demand


There are a couple of possibilities. I would try an unconventional decalcifying process - let 1/2 a caraffe of distilled white vinegar and 1/2 caraffe water sit in the reservoir for a full hour with the coffeemaker unplugged. At the end of the hour, plug the coffeemaker back in and turn it on - once a small amount of vinegar and water brews through, turn the coffeemaker off. Let sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let the rest of the vinegar/water brew thorugh.

If the machine doesn't take the vinegar/water at all, call Cuisinart and find out if your are still in-warranty. If you are, get the machine replaced. If you are out of warranty, you can remove the bottom of the coffeemaker (difficult), and look at the bottom - likely you will see a loose hose. You can get a Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware salesperson to find an adhesive that will put it back together, or get a generic replacement hose - original parts would not be available except by buying a broken Cuisinart in the same model.

My two cents.

I have a cuisinart Grind and Brew with a glass carafe - not pictured above. The self clean button keeps lighting up and I don't know how to run the clean cycle.


Fill the water reservoir with 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water - then press the self-clean button. If the water doesn't start going through after a minute or two, just turn the machine on like you were brewing coffee. After the vinegar/water soultion has gone through the machine, brew one cycle of plain water to flush out the vinegar. If the self-clean light stays on, just unplug the machine for longer than 20 minutes, and the light should not come back on when you replug the machine. Good luck!

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.

Brews most of the water than stops and shuts itself off


Cuisinart Coffeemaker Decalcification Process

Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Cuisinart 12 Cup Digital Thermal Coffemaker


I called Cusinart support and they told me to fill with 2 cups of white vinegar and the rest water, let set for three hours. Did that. Had to keep hitting the on button to get this solution through. Then used a solution of one cup of vinegar and water and this ran through the whole cycle. Ran three more with just water and now it works just fine. Brewed coffee this morning with no problem. Didn't think this would work but seems to have solved the problem. They do suggest you decalcify once a month using the vinegar solution...hope I remember to do this as it would be a lot easier than having to get hitting the on button. Good luck!
