You may try opening the front cover first and removing the filter then after opening the top lid, remove the clear grinder cover and lift the grinder from the rear. After you get it out be sure to clean the motor drive shaft and the bottom of the grinder. then use a trace of vegetable oil to lubricate the motor shaft where is attaches to the grinder.

We are on our second coffee maker and it makes great coffee.

Continue to get beeping after taking out basket, emptying water, re-inserting basket and making certain lid is clicked shut. Thoughts?


All the parts have to be in place, including both the removable grinder unit and its clear cover, even if you're using pre-ground coffee.

It also requires that both the top lid and the front "door" (to the basket area) are clicked shut, and that the basket and its cover are both in place.

One thing to check carefully is the clear cover to the grinder unit. There's a rubber-like "nub" that seems to actually control the switch, which tells the machine that the grinder unit is properly installed. If that rubber-like nub is missing (and unfortunately it IS possible to remove it, particularly during cleaning) ... that could be causing your problem. If you see a hole in the top of that clear cover... you're missing that "nub".

DGB-600 won't stop beeping and is missind grinder


The grinder cover has a white pin as a part of the cover that acts as a go between for the plastic molded post on the cover and a contact switch in the unit. Without the cover in place the molded post is not long enough to reach the contact switch and "tell" the machine it's o.k. to brew. It will beep incesssantly and do nothing. Get a replacement cover, or jury rig something to act as a replacement for the grinder cover pin. You can manually push in the switch to get it to stop beeping, but it will spring back out as soon as you release it.

The beeping is typically caused by the grinder safety interlock. There is a small pin on the clear grinder cover that needs to be in place so that it is depressed into the safety switch when the cover is closed. The interlock switch prevents the grinder from working when the cover is open. Check to be sure that the pin in the grinder cover is not broken.

My cuisninart won't stop beeping, but every part seems to be in place how can I fix the problem?


On the Grind and Brew coffee maker the beeping is typically caused by the grinder safety interlock. There is a small pin on the clear grinder cover that needs to be in place so that it is depressed into the safety switch when the cover is closed. The interlock switch prevents the grinder from working when the cover is open. Check to be sure that the pin in the grinder cover is not broken. If you open the cover after you have started the auto-brew, it will beep but you can stop the sound by using a pen to gently depress the switch inside the small plastic post.

Beeps constantly


Hi,

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.

These instructions are to a DGB600 but i think it is the same to your model.

I had the problem also.  First, I cleaned the area very well of the caramelized coffee gunk. where the grinder goes.  I also filed away a few degraded areas on the grinder's plastic housing.  Haven't had the problem since.

I just got mine to work. It seems that so much water condensation gets into the grinder that there was rust stopping the grinder from moving. Just remove all the parts, especially the blade and basket holder assembly. Take a pair of pliers and twist the grinder stem manually to loosen the rust. Turn it a good number of times and then test it out. I didn't want to use WD-40 on something my wife uses everyday. Good luck.
