Door that opens the filter basket gets stuck!!

Same type of issue except the door to the filter basket gets stuck. I think the problem is with the fine grinds getting stuck in the part that slides the basket in and out. Any suggestions? AFter reviewing the problems some people experienced when removing the whole component, it seems like it would be a pain to reinsert.

I bought one at a thrift store for $8.00 and it had the same problem. All I did was put some cooking vegetable oil on the open basket door where it stuck, using a q-tip. It has worked great for over a year now.

Water gets stuck in the filter


Inspect the strainer basket's valve to make sure it is not blocked and working properly. You should be able to test it in the sink, fill with water and push the valve up from underneath. Tap the valve a few times to loosen any debris that might be blocking it.

Make sure the pot is fully in place on the warming plate. The lid must align properly with the strainer basket to open the valve adequately. If the pot lid is not touching the strainer basket valve, you may have the wrong pot or the strainer basket is not seated into the coffeemaker correctly. Check for obstructions underneath the strainer basket. Then, make sure the rounded projection aligns with the notch in the coffeemaker near the reservoir.

DGB-550BK Filter basket won't stay shut when either brewing ground coffee or grinding beans.. With the ground; the basket pops open mid brew and makes a mess everywhere. When grinding beans, I've noticed...


Not a solution but...

Many folks have reported this, the latching mechanism wears out eventually.
We had the problem but discovered that the door on the basket wasn't getting completely closed. Now I make sure it's closed and haven't had any problem since.
Hope this solves your issue - if not, keep an eye on yard sales, we picked up two at different times for $5 and now have parts to swap out - not much help for a failed latch though.
Glad I never paid full price for it, even though it's a fairly good grinder/brewer.

How do i clean my cuisinart grind and brew coffee maker? i can't find my instruction booklet and it needs to be cleaned. thanks!


From the manual I found online here.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE COMPLETELY CLEAN AND DRY ALL PARTS AFTER EVERY USE. Always turn coffeemaker OFF and remove the plug from the electrical outlet before cleaning. Open the reservoir lid*. Remove the grinder basket lid by using the recessed area on each side of the lid. Then remove Grinder Basket. Open Filter Basket Door. Remove Filter Basket Cover, Filter Basket and Filter Basket holder. The grinder basket, grinder basket lid, filter basket and filter basket cover can be washed in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or cleaned in the upper rack of the dishwasher. Dry all parts after every use. Do not put any water in the unit once the grinder basket has been removed. Wipe the area under the grinder basket with a damp cloth. If water gets into the grinder motor, the motor may become damaged and may malfunction.
DECALCIFICATION Decalcification refers to removing the calcium deposits which form over time on the metal parts of the coffeemaker. For best performance from your coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit from time to time. The frequency depends upon the hardness of your tap water and how often you use the coffeemaker. To clean, fill the water reservoir to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water. Turn the coffeemaker on by pressing the ON button. One cycle should be sufficient to adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is completed and the five beeps sound, turn coffeemaker off. Repeat operation, this time using fresh cold water.

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing


Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

I was trying to clean my cuisinart DGB-600 coffee maker. I unscrewed asmall hex screw under the black piece that slides out and a spring popped out. This spring helps keep the filter basket door button...


I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

Filter pops out in middle of cylcle


I periodically take a wet Q-Tip and clean around and inside the "slides" for the brewing basket door, so that it slides in and out easily. (I was amazed what the Q-Tips look like after you do this.)

I think the problem lies in the fact the basket does not go fully back and engage the latch due to the gunk that builds up on the slide. You think you fully closed the door when you feel the resistance of the gunk, but you are only marginally latched - the vibration of the motor pops the door free and VIOLA! coffee-ala'-counter!

I think the gunk comes from very fine ground coffee dust, mixed with water that condenses from the steam that envelops the unit during brewing.

I also clean every surface in the brewing basket area with a wet paper towel,

Filter basket pops open after grinding GROUNDS AND WATER EVERYWHERE!!!!


I had that problem a few times. When the door is open and the basket is removed I pushed in and held the release button while I cleaned that little hook area that holds the pop out tray in place. I just used a paper towel and nicely warm water. Works fine afterwords. I try to clean this at least every week.
