Wait till the coffee pot cools down. The plastic parts get hot and that is was causes it to stick. You can put the machine in the fridge about 20 minutes, to help it cool down faster.
Also, once the grinder is off.. spray vegetable oil Pam on the shaft that you put the grinder on. That helps to stop it from sticking.
I tried this and it works.

I tied a cord around the propeller and dropped the whole unit and held the cord to pop it out. I did it gently enough that i was able to support the fall of the unit when it seperated. be careful though..that propeller is sharp.Similar to pulling teeth with a string and a door knob. =)

    Safe and easy. - remove grinder basket by gently giggling and pushing spout from underneath



Cuisinart CS says to pour hot water around the outside of the grinder, that didn't help me at all. I finally used 1 foot of cord (heavy string) and made a loop, putting one end around the base of the grinder blade and then hooked the claw of a hammer in the other. Then yank up on the hammer.

It is the seal in the grinder cup that goes bad and causes the whole thing to get stuck. Not a big deal. Get a new little cup and it will be as good as new.

Get a new one. I had to pry mine out with a butter knife. After doing that only once I went on line and got a new one for 15 bucks. Problem solved. Better then 200 for a new coffee maker.

While the coffee is brewing without using the grinder feature, coffee overflows onto the counter. About 1/2 of the coffee goes into the pot while the rest spills over. I have cleaned residue from the lid...

overflow problem possible causes: 1) water is over the "10" marker, 2) no filter in basket 3) too much (or too fine) of coffee in the basket -- does not drain. Also make sure the "spring" on the bottom of the basket is not stuck (the one that lets you remove coffee carafe without dripping coffee.

Coffee grinder on brew and grind won't work

Make sure the slot between the grind basket and filter basket is clean and free of grounds - then inspect the area near the grinder motor - use the brush that came supplied with the Cuisinart to clean that area out. Once thoroughly cleaned, try one more time to Grind. Let me know if it works.

Need schematic to reassemble...

The filter basket is orderable from Cuisinart and costs somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 to $6 - there is no service manual for that particular part of the coffee maker.

The grinder itseld seems to be working because it makes the grinding noise. However, the beans are not going down the shaft into the grinder. I have cleaned out the top and removed the container holding...

Make sure the filter basket is in the open position, and that the area that runs from the grind basket to the filter basket is free from grinds and mositure.

Coffee basket

Called Cuisinart - they said to remove the basket ( I unplugged and then used pliers to move the blade/shaft up and down until it wiggled loose ) ... use soap and water to remove coffee oil (the real problem) and then pour a little vegetable oil into the female end where the motor engages the grinder blade to lubricate.
