Question about Cuisinart Supreme Grind DBM-8 Electric Burr Grinder
We have had the same problem with the grinder not working. The front base of the main unit has a small slot. Inside the slot is a safety switch. The switch is closed when the coffee ground container is inserted into place. You will also see the small blade on the front bottom of the container which activates the safety switch. I just used a small toothpick and cleaned any debris from the slot and exercised the safety switch by gently pushing it back a number of times.
You can test the unit by taking the coffee ground container out and set it aside. Position the coffee amount slide to any number just so it isn't in the off position, then hold the on bar down and take the toothpick activate the safety switch in the slot on the front of the base of the unit. It worked for me. I didn't see anything obstructing the switch but it is dark and hard to see in the slot. I possibly dislodged some coffee grounds or something which restricted the switch movement.
