Question about Cuisinart Supreme Grind DBM-8 Electric Burr Grinder

1 Answer

Cuisinart DBM-8 coffee grinder started by itself.

I was in another room, in the house alone, and all of a sudden I heard the grinder going. It went through a whole cycle. Nothing fell on top of the start button. I just unplugged it. is this an electrical problem? There was no indication of a power surge or outage.

Mine did it as well. I had an electrician out to check out the outlet. He replaced the outlet, but it still has done it. It freaks me out, so I unplug it after use.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DBM-8 Grinder Automatic Burr Mill stopped grinding

SOURCE: coffee grinder not working

My burr grinder also stops if the ground spout (where the coffee shoots out) is clogged. I use my grinder for an espresso machine so i always have the setting on the finest and so with the oils and the fine grind it clogs this spout pretty often. I"d check yours out too (ie remove the coffee ground bin and you can see the spout. If it is clogged uplug the machine and take a tooth pick and un clogg it. Don't jam the tooth pick in there to deep you don't want it to get shuved into the grinder wheels.

How do i clean dbm-8 grinder


Do yourself a favor and got the right kind of grinder for the coffee you drink. If you have a dry coffee use a grinder. High oils in some coffee need the blade type of grinder. Usually you can tell by looking inside the bad. See oily coating get a blade type.

Grinder fell. Black "button" inside broke off.


Use just about any 2-part epoxy, clean parts with rubbing alcohol first to remove coffee oil and get a good bond.

Coffee does not go from grind to brew basket. Plugs..must clean every time


Try running some unflavored panko breadcrumbs or rice through it. That will clean it up and remove any oil that's causing sticking. Try to use less oily coffee in the future to avoid this.

Cuisinart grinder wobbles


The model that you have is Costco's equivalent of the DBM-8 - the parts are exactly the same, so enter "DBM-8" as your model # on the Cuisinart website for parts.
