Stalled... won't grind... makes no sound... it is 5 years old...

And it is a terrific grinder...has the motor failed?

    This got me on the right track... I simply removed the inline fuse, soldered the two wires together and put the Maestro Plus on a fuse supplied pigtail extension.

    You were right.. the fuse blew... and it was a silly extra safety add on that was bound to be a nuisance. The pigtail is a better way.

    Getting the damned housing off is the worst problem.

Hi
Remove bean hopper
Remove grounds hopper
Remove timer knob on the side
Turn the grinder upside down
There are 4 slits on the outside edge.
Insert a screw driver into the grove and pry gently outward with a
little downward pressure on the outside until the side slips a bit.
Repeat on all 4 slits and the shell should slide off.
There is a fuse on the side of the motor that will blow and stop the motor. It is a thermal fuse and should be replaced by a qualified tech.

I have a Bosch 7-1/2"


I could be a bad plug or a frade power cord. Whith the grinder unplugged make sure the grinding wheel turns by hand. If it does it could be a bad on off switch or the brushes in the motor could be worn.

Our DGB-700 has stopped grinding the beans. The motor sounds very weak. I have taken it apart and cleaned thoroughly with no good results. Can it be repaired or is it just time to "move on"...


I use Capresso CoffeeTeam model #454 10 cup 50 oz digital coffeemaker burr grinder combination with four grind settings. Now it is more than 5 years old, works every single day without any problem. Capresso has the great customer support. Its price for the refurbished item is compatible with the price of your Cuisinart. I am not sure it is the solution for you but I am very happy with my coffeemaker.

Grinder stalls constantly (motor whirring, but no grinding happening) so I shake it to get it grinding again, but the whirring/no grinding happens over and over. I have to shake the think 5 or 6 times to...


As I can see, what happens is that some coffee grains stucks in the way from the upper pot to the grinding wheel. This is not something usual, but possible if coffee grains are too big and are placed across the entry of the mill. Try cleaning more deep with some old toothbrush. Look for a clean and even surface of the duct.
Other cause might be a loosen mill hub/grinding wheel off the motor shaft, which would require dissassemble of the appliance to be repaired.

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Reply back and we can you more.

Grinder completely unresponsibe.


Hi
If you have tried opening the adjustment to a larger # and it still doesn't work. Well if the motor won't turn, I only hope the machine is less than a year old because the likely problem is the motor is bad. Sorry

Dishwasher making loud noise


Newer washers are designed with a food grinder inside to help grind up large pieces of food. What you are hearing is the grinder doing its job. You do not need to worry about the noise. It should go away after a while as the food particle is ground up.
