Need instructions to set the auto to brew. I know how to set the brew time, just don't know how to get it to run auto at that time. What am I doing wrong?

Press and hold the program button till the time flashes. Set the hour and minutes by pressing the hour/minute buttons. After you have the correct start time it will automatically go back to time after a while (may be able to press program again to finish set, don't remember). Press program to turn it on (greeen lite will come on to show it is set).

My Cuisinart 10 cup Grind & Brew does not finish the brew cycle. After brewing 2 cups of coffee, it beeps 5 times as if the brew cycle has ended. Then it continues to drip very very slowly. It's only...

you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

Cuisinart grind and brew--water does not come down

If the water is not coming out of the filter basket, and is instead leaking over the edges, then replace the brew basket.

If there is no water at all, call Cuisinart - those coffee makers have a 3-year warranty.

The part the manual doesn't mention is that, after you have set the program time, you have to press the program button one more time. THEN, set it to auto-on. Also, make sure that the clock is set for AM/PM as appropriate - it will display PM if it is set for PM, and will not give an indication either way if it is set for AM.

Cuisinart 10 cup auto grind and brew


Here is a link for the PDF version of the Instruction Booklet for the DGB-600BCC (from the name you provided I’m assuming this is the correct product).

If it’s not the right product, check out the website, you can select the product you are looking for and download the instruction booklet from the product page.

Hope that helps!
