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.
You have to use the "Auto-Off" feature, which is located on the same button as on/off:
The automatic shutoff time (ASO) can be
programmed to shut off immediately after
brewing (0:00) or up to 4 hours later. The
default shutoff time is 2 hours.
Press and hold the On/Off button to display
current shutoff time. To change the preset
time, press and hold the On/Off button until
the red power light and LCD display begin to
flash. This signals that you have entered the
Set automatic shutoff mode. Set the time
you want coffee to begin brewing by
following the instructions in “Entering Time
When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two
tones will sound.
NOTE: Automatic shutoff may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. If you program the auto shutoff
time after brewing is completed the unit
will automatically account for elapsed time.
For example, if you set the auto shutoff for
40 minutes and 25 minutes have already
elapsed, the unit will shut off automatically
after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25
elapsed equals 15 minutes).
Hello g_daniel, Your units problem may be due to a filter problem. I am most familiar with the cuisinart dcc1200, but I may be able to help you. Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with
the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or
column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon
filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and
remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the
problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See
if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and
4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this
once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of
clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following:
unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx
driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom
cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you
will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose
without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If
it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time
comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve
inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best
you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the
pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and
screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as
it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps,
please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards,
Reset the coffeemaker by unplugging it for 20 minutes or longer - don't skimp on the time left unplugged.
Then plug the coffeemaker back in, reset the normal clock. Remember: It will display PM if it is on PM, but nothing if it is on AM.
Then hit the Program button. Hold in the "Hours" button for a few seconds and set the time you want the coffeemaker to go off in the morning. Hold in the "Minutes" button for a few seconds and change the minutes. Then hit the Program button again.
Now turn your coffeemaker to AUTO-ON - it will now go off at the set time.
The Automatic Shutoff Time can be programmed
anywhere from immediate shutoff
after completion of the brew cycle up to four
hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off,
two tones will sound. Four hours is the default
time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately
after brewing is complete. To check the
current setting, press the “On/Off” button and
the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the
“On/Off” button until the red “power” light
begins to flash. This signals that you have
entered the “Set Automatic Shutoff” mode.
Press the “Hours” and “Minutes” buttons
to scroll forward through the digits until
desired time appears. The first setting which
appears is preset at “4:00” and the next
display will be “0:00”, since four hours is the
maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing
and holding either button will allow you to
scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to
accelerate to the rate of about three digits per
second. As the desired time setting approaches,
release the button and then press repeatedly
to advance one digit at a time.
The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. You may also re-program the ASO
time when brewing has been completed. If you
do so, the Automatic Grind & Brew™ will automatically
account for any time that has already
elapsed after brewing.
You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.
Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.
Turn on the Auto-Off feature - it should display "2:00" - press the hour button twice and change it to "4:00" - it will now go off after every 4 hours - that is the maximum time period allowed by the coffee maker.
The machine will not run if the covers /for the coffee grinder, the filter basket and the machine itself) are not properly closed.
It will beep and stop running if it is turned on when one of the covers is open or if one is opened before the end of the cycle. The beeping will stop as soon as the cover is closed.
To start the machine again, press the ON button.
If it still not will operate, head it back to the store.
