I had the same problem. What worked for me was the paperclip trick. Yes, there is a metal puncture tube in the k-cup, but there is also one on the top of the lid (when you open it up as if you're putting a k-cup in there). I got a flashlight, used the paperclip to clean out all the encrusted grinds, put it thru the cleaning procedure with vinegar as per the manual, and now it works perfectly! Hope this helps.

SOURCE: instruction manual for cuisinart auto grinb and brew 1 to 4 cups

Here is the trick with the Cuisinart Grind n Brews - their proportion sizes are based on a 5 oz cup - most coffee cups are about 8 oz cups - so you really need to use more than they suggest, but here is their reccomendation:

We recommend you use 1 scoop of whole
beans per cup. Maximum 14 scoops.
For 1 or 2 cups, use 1-1/2 level scoops
per cup. Adjust the recipe according
to individual taste.

Single serve flashes but does not brew


It's always best to give the model number of the appliance when asking questions about problems. Here's what a general troubleshooting procedure that might find the problem:

(1) Every once in a while an air bubble may get trapped in the water path. Lift off the reservoir, then put it back into place.
(2) Turn off and unplug the brewer for a couple of minutes or more. When you plug the brewer back in, be sure to turn the power back on.
(3) Make sure the water reservoir is properly in place, and perform a Rinse cycle.
(4) After placing the K-Cup® in the K-Cup® Holder, make sure the handle is pushed down securely and the LCD control panel reads READY. The and buttons, Brew, Hot Water, and Rinse buttons will be illuminated. Then press any of the lit buttons.
(5) If the LCD control panel indicates ADD WATER, check to make sure the water reservoir is properly filled. If not, add water. If so, make sure the water reservoir is properly seated in its base.
(6) If the LCD control panel indicates ADD WATER even after refilling and checking the base, contact Customer Service at 1-800-726-0190.
(7) The exit needle may be clogged (refer to page 19).

My cuisinart single serve brewing system suddenly says "not ready" continually and I can't turn it off unless i unplug it. Same problem when i plug it back in.


Does't heat up or doesn't get the pressure? do you hear a pumping sound? if yes it means it doesn't heat, if not it means it doesn't pressurise...open it and check for spilled water, corrosion, disconnections.

Cheers

Need instruction book for Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing System Model # CUISS-700


Here are the instructions to de-scale your Cuisinart SS-700, taken directly from the unit's manual, available here (www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/ss-700.pdf):

1. Empty the reservoir.

2. Disable the AUTO OFF and OFF TIME features.

3. Making sure there is no K-Cup in the brewing chamber, fill the reservoir with 60 oz. of undiluted white vinegar.

4. Place a large mug on the drip tray and run a Hot Water cycle. Select the 12 oz. brew size. Discard contents of mug.

5. Repeat the hot water process until ADD WATER is displayed on the control panel and the reservoir lights will flash.

6. Let the Brewer stand for at least four hours while still on.

7. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.

8. Run another Hot Water cycle. Discard contents of large mug.

9. Repeat hot water process until ADD WATER is displayed on the control panel and the reservoir lights will flash.

10. You may need to perform additional Hot Water cycles if you detect any residual vinegar taste.

Note: If DE-SCALE is still displayed on the control panel after completing the procedure, repeat the de-scaling procedure above.

What does it mean when the brew light flashes?


Pot needs cleaning. Fill reservoir with 4 cups of vinegar. Press the SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light turns on. Let it perk through. It will take 45-60 minutes. It brews a few cups, stops and then should brew the remainder of the vinegar. When the cycle is complete the light will burn off and the coffeemaker will turn off. Discard vinegar solution and run a couple of pots of clear water through. Hope this helps.

Condensation- Cuisinart coffeemaker DGB-300


The condensation is normal, not just with this Cuisinart Grind n Brew, but with ALL Cuisinart Grind n Brews - because of this, you will really need to clean it after every use if you want the grinder portion to last long. As far as the bean amt - Cuisinart bases it's reccomendations on a smaller-than-normal coffee cup size of 5 ozs or so. Plus, the condensation, as you mentioned, will prevent a certain portion of the grinds from flowing to the brew/filter basket. Add more beans or less water to make a stronger cup.
