SOURCE: I cannot remove the grinder
Common with the DGB-600 - you can try icing it down for 10 minutes - once removed, clean exterior with vinegar applied to a rag to get oils off - endemic to this unit - replacing it with exact same model will not help.

Same problem and I'm the husband that always got it unstuck...... until this morning. I read somewhere that putting the whole machine in the freezer will work. I did and the grinder just lifted out without any pressure at all! My wife was laughing at me when I was looking on line for a solution but she just smiled when it was removed.......

You may have to clean the grinder....even more. That happened to me once. First I cleaned out the coffeemaker with the brush, and "dug" out more coffee, then I used this product which you can find on Amazon: "Urnex Grindz Coffee Grinder Cleaner - Urnex 17-GRINDZ12-40." It's expensive, but it really worked well.

Tips for a great answer:
1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.
2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.
3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.
4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.
5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.
6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.
7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.
8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.
9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.
10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.
11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.
12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.
