Question about Cuisinart DCG-12BC Electric Blades Grinder
I just purchased my second DCG-12BC grinder in the last 3 weeks. The first stopped working (just died) after about 3 uses and I exchanged it for the samne product because of its large capacity and hoping the first was just a lemon. Same thing happened again mid-grind after I tapped it on the side (quite gently) to loosen beans at the bottom of the cup.
What's wrong? Can I fix this problem or do I need to return it?
It's possible that it's not a motor problem, but a switch problem. I dissassembled mine, and am debating replacing the switch. I would try a multimeter, but the safety interlock is a pain.
So I might just rewire it (very easy to do!) so that it runs the minute it's plugged in, and stops when unplugged. I'll post again after I decide what to do.

Looks like it is the load side winding, i opened it up and the switch ohmed fine but i lose coductivity when i try and trace to the motor leads. I checked for a safety limit switch but found none. By the looks of everyone else with this problem it is just a poor manufacture.

I had the same problem with the grinder - stopped working after about 2 months. i called Cuisineart and they replaced it for warranty, eventhough i had to pay the shipping charges both ways.
