Actually, I've never had any problems with my grinder. Got it for a very low price at Costco about 2 years ago. The switch has never failed to function and I've often slid the switch over to the left to stop the grinding before the designated time (I was in a hurry for my coffee) , but this hasn't seemed to negatively effect the function of the switch. It just keeps working.

This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.
Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)
Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.
Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.
You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.
Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.
Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(
If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!

Unplug first. Unscrew the top. You need a long thin screw driver Phillips head is the best. Pock around the exit and entrance where the coffee beans are ground. Remember, the better the coffee and you will get more clumping of the beans. I works great. It is pain. The Chicago Clout man exits.

.... mine stuck after "first" use ... solution ... took it back to the store, got a refund, bought a Mr. Coffee Model IDS77 which was $11. cheaper, has automatic grind settings and a superior bowl arrangement... Then I put Cuisinart on my list of DO NOT BUY ... anything can have problems, but something obviously this chronic should be handled better by the manufacturer ... it should have been taken off the market and fixed ...

1) test the power cord for open or break with VOM
2) test the outlet box wall, put some another devices and see if working , if does the problem is the device
3) test the main switch for open or defective or loose wires, repair or replace
4) test for thermal fuse inside, for open and replace, see if your model hast c.breaker and reset it.
5) Try now.
6) Please read your owner manual, if you do not have download from www.retrevo.com and go the section troubleshooting
God bless you
