Question about Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker
I have owned this coffee maker for nearly 4 years, and love it. This morning, however, the bottom piece of the bean grinder will not come out of the unit. I don't know why it's stuck. Has anyone else ever encountered this?
If you open the door in the front and remove the straining basket you will see an open space where the very bottom the grind cup sits. Take a long thin standard head screwdriver and insert it there until you feel the post of the grinding engine against the screwdriver. Turn the screwdriver like you are turning a screw. The grind unit should start to move up. You can try to use the screwdriver to pry upward to finish the job. Another post said that redrilling the brass post insert on the grind cup worked for him. The problem seems to be the grind motor post that has swollen or been misshapen through the use of the machine. If they were to ask me, there is a better design for this contraption, just look at any blender. Flat disks with downward (or upward) facing fingers on the removable container and the motor.

Use short end of a allen wrench (L shaped tool) to pry off. Insert under grinder bottom push on longer side of allen wrench

If the grinder has not been taken apart for a while there maybe something like a mechanical weld between the post of the motor that turns the grinder and the receiving piece at the base of the plastic grinder cup.
Careful, yet forceful pulling will separate the two. I used lock grip pliers opened just wide enough not damage the plastic cap in the grinder cup but closed enough to allow you to pull straight up. Afterward use a cotton stick to dry the two before pressing them together.
The humidity from each brew cycle can contribute to the stubbornness of the grinder motor post and the receiving stem of the blade.
