Question about Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Coffee will no longer grind.

We just discovered this problem this morning. I put the coffee beans into the grinder, added the water, and was greeted by a loud spinning whine, instead of the loud spinning of grinding coffee. I took the beans out of the grinder basket, put the cover on the grinder basket, closed the lid and pressed the on switch. The blades turn. I then added enough coffee beans to make 4 cups. The blades sort of went around, but in no way did they grind the beans. What should I do now?

    Beans are mostly ground, but some coarsely ground still in grinder. Also, the grinder blades seems very loose.

Our bean grinder has stopped grinding. It spins but the beans do not grind. The machine works fine on the ground coffee option.


Did you put water in the grinder by mistake? If the grinder is wet it won't grind anymore,have to cleaned the blades physically .
OR are you using the beans from the fridge? It's a NO NO.

Coffee Beans do not grind


Try using the vacuum to clean out the grounds, then remove the brew unit and make sure the chamber from the grinder is clear.

My A-9 Coffee grinder no longer grinds coffee. Have cleaned it and checked it out and nothing. The motor runs but no grounds. Thanks for your help!


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Coffee Grinder on the EAM3500


We just went through the same situation. We opened the top the Magnifica to get to the grinder and removed the four screws to seperate the grinding pieces. Inside we discovered two black fosilized beans/stones! We removed those, cleaned out all the bean dust and it is working like new! Took about an hour.

Hi,

Make sure you not get any water in the grinder, if you got water in the grinder then you have to clean it.

You can try to set grinding to coarse and try to make 3 cup of coffee.
