Question about Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder

Thermal carafe clogged

My Cuisinart DGB 900 grind & brew makes good coffee, but suddenly the coffee does not fill into the thermal carafe. It simply overflows onto the counter. I have cleaned the lid thoroughly, but still does not fill. Is there a problem with a vacuum seal? How would I fix it?

    The problem is the float valve in the top center of the lid. With normal use it will get caked with coffee residue, and after a time it will become too heavy with these residues to float properly when coffee comes in .. and then it overflows without filling. Look carefully through the slots on top with a bright light and you'll see the residue buildup. Yuk. The lid pries apart easily when firm pressure is applied from the spout end .. just get your thumb in there and pull. It snaps right back together when you're done. Soak the whole contraption in hot soapy water and then give it a thorough hot rinse. That should remove the gunk.

I was once able to disassemble the top of the carafe and clean it thoroughly. I've had these clogging problems before, and it has not been the filter chamber that is the problem, but the vent in the carafe being clogged. When the air from the inside of the carafe can't be displaced faster than the coffee is draining in, the coffee stops draining into the carafe, fills the top, and spills over the side.

Will probably end up buying a replacement lid, as I can't figure out how to open the top without destroying it. I must have gotten lucky the time I was able to take it apart.

The filter basket is probably damaged - get a replacement filter basket from Cuisinart, or call Cuisinart to be sure. Something is probably preventing the element in filter basket from pulling up to the open position.

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: http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/DGB-600BCC_en.pdf

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.

We have a Cuisinart DGB-900 BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker. Our Problem is that the bean grinder has stopped working. We purchased the coffee maker on 2/25/10. Prior to this happening, we were...


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.

Coffee in Cuisinart grind and brew ends up all over counter


once and a while the filter door will come ajar and make the coffee leak all over. (allways try to jigle it open after closing, because fine grounds will make the door not close right) Also if the carafe is not in all the way you'll geta mess too!

Cuisinart Grind & Brew DGB-600 fills up water in goldtone filter;


Some fine-grain coffees are too fine for the Gold Tone Filter. If this is the case, remove the Gold tone Filter and use paper filters only. You may have to wash excess grinds out of the black filter basket, since there may be a few stuck in there now - don't take the filter basket apart - just rinse it out with water.

Also, don't use a paper filter and the gold tone filter at the same time.

Good luck!
