How do you clean the lint filter?


you can't clean lint filter. It has a built in filter that cleans itself. It is under the inner basket. If you have to, than remove the agitator and inner basket. It is attached to basket on bottom. No need to clean though

Have just bought a secondhand Ruby and replaced the blades and basket - still having problems with the basket collecting pulp (apples) and becoming noisy - unbalanced I assume. When I clean out the basket...


Hi Kathy, we had the same problem. You need to soak you basket overnight (every day) in a chlorinated solution/detergent. This will keep your filter basket clean. Also, make sure you rinse out your juicer if you know you are not going to use it much for a few hours as the pulp will dry up and clog your filter. Since adopting we started doing this we haven't had any more problems.

The coffee will go all over the counter. We did not get a manual with the coffee maker. Could I possibly be setting the pot incorrectly on the plate?


Check the following:
1. Make sure that you are using the correct size coffee filter in the basket. Only one filter is needed to allow proper drainage.
2. Check the spring loaded button on the bottom of the coffee basket. Remove the basket, put some water in the basket, push the button up to make sure the water is released from the basket.
3. Put the basket back in place, insert the carafe and check to make sure that the top of the carafe cover pushes up the button on the basket to release brewing coffee.

If all these check out, then there is an internal leak and the unit need to be repaired or replaced.

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.

Lately whether I put in pre-ground beans or whole beans, 1/2 the pot while dripping, leaks all over the counter, Help!


If water is leaking from the very bottom of the machine, your unit is broke and you need to call Cuisinart. If it is just overflowing the caraffe/basket:
The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

Sand dollar sand filter has great pressure on backwash but has very low pressure on filter then after a short time does not have any pressure water does not move at all. I changed sand and cleaned...


Generally, if the filter loses pressure in the filter mode, you have an air leak somewhere. When the filter is low on pressure, check your pump basket area. If there is air in the basket, that is the problem. It could be a bad o-ring under the basket lid, or the air release on the valve, but it will need to be found. Check for drips around the equipment also.

Making Coffee


Ok lift the lid and inside you will see a brew basket (it will have a hole in the bottem middle of it) If this unit has a mesh type filter basket you will not need paper filters! you put the coffee in the mesh basket the replace before brewing! if you do not have a mesh basket you will need a paper filter to put down in the coffee holder!(the one with the hole in the bottom!) add coffee and waeter and brew!
I hope this fixes ya up!
Please rate my response!
THANK YOU!
