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.

SOURCE: Cuisinart coffee maker grinder stuck

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.

How do I clean the inside of the coffee grinder kitchenaid model A-9


Instructions Things you need
  • Soapy water
  • Screwdriver
  • Burr cleaning brush
  • Damp cloth

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.

How to remove bean hopper?


Yes it unscrews, just turn it counter clockwise and it will come out. Don't be surprised if the plastic neck and burr head is broken because this is an inferior design and needs to be trashed. I will never buy another Cuisinart product.

My cuisinart cbm-18 does not grind at below a 10 setting?


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

I'm guessing the problem is that the grinders blades, or the parts that do the grinding have become somewhat dull, (opposite from Sharp.) and no longer can get to the beans like it used to.

Cleaning the machine properly might improve its performance.


CLEANING/MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Be sure plug has been removed from outlet.

2. Beans can be removed from the hopper by lifting off the lid and pouring excess beans out. Hold down the Manual button to cleanout any remaining beans.

3. The bean hopper, bean hopper lid, grind chamber, and grind chamber lid can be washed by hand with hot, soapy water or placed in the top shelf of a dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.

a. Remove the bean hopper by rotating counter-clockwise bringing the selector past grind setting 18, align the arrows and lift up. Make sure the hopper is empty.

b. Remove grind chamber by pulling toward you.


4. Remove the burr grinder, once the bean hopper has been removed, by grasping the metal handle and lifting up. Use the brush to remove grinds or wash by hand. Replace the burr grinder onto the unit and rotate until the piece is fully inserted. Push handle down and replace hopper.

NOTE: The hopper will not attach to the unit if the grinder has not been fully inserted.

5. Wipe body of grinder with a damp cloth.

6. Any other servicing or maintenance should be performed by an authorized service representative.

Cleaned the Solis Maestro grinder and re set it to a fine espresso setting but the grind is coming out very course. What should i do?


Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

Is it possible to get a replacement bean hopper? My machine tipped over, and the plastic tube attaching the hopper to the base is broken.


Yes, you can purchase just the hopper assembly for around $10 directly from Cuisinart. Here's a link to their web site and the parts page for grinders.

http://www.cuisinart.com/parts/coffee_bar/dbm-8.html

I would also give them a call, as they are pretty well known for excellent customer service and you might get the replacement part for free, if you're still within the warranty or close to it. Give them a call using their contact page, as I'm not sure if you're in the USA or somewhere else in the world.

US Customers can call 1-800-726-0190

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Grinder setting stops at drip. Can't turn further to espresso.


Another suggestion is while the grinder is off, turn it up side down and rotate the bean hopper from coarse to fine a couple of times. This will clean out grounds that have gotten into the threads and it will prevent the bean hopper from not turning to a finer grind.
If you start to get a clog in your grinder, open it up to a coarse grind for a few seconds. The coarser grind will clean out the chute and then you can turn it down again while it is still grinding.

Cuisinart burr grind and brew coffee maker


The hopper between the burr grinder and where coffee chutes into the filter is jammed with coffee powder...

First, take out the filter holder and carafe, and place a freash empty filter on the pot base to catch stuff.

Next, take out the beans holder and look for the release lever in the lower left section. Sliding it to the left slides open the door, where you'll probably find loads of powder. You can poke your finger through to get the majority, then use the cleaning brush to get it really clean.

Thanks what fixed mine! (I notice I have to do this about once every few months.)

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC coffee grinder just stopped.


I just had the same problem, and careful examination revealed a horizontal (circumferencial) crack in the feed tube just above the top grinder wheel. I imagine the force of the grind is causing the crack to expand so that the wheels are jamming together creating too much friction/force for the grind to continue. Limited parts are available on cuisinart.com. Where you only need the shaft in this case, you will have to buy the entire bean chamber to get that part. About $8 plus shipping. They're showing the model as DBM-8. I'm pretty sure it's the same model as CCM-16PC that's stamped on the bottom.

Cuisinart DBM-8 coffee grinder


Have you tried checking the output chute at the bottom to see if it is clogged up? I was having low flow issues, which is how I found this post, and went and cleaned it out completely. I was amazed, and a bit disgusted, at how much powder was stuck in there. The top screws off nice and easy. then just use the brush down the chute there and at the front behind where the bin is. I also ran popping corn through it and got out even more. Then I threw all the attachments into the dishwasher, top rack like the manual says.

Hope that helps you.
