SOURCE: Water leaking from the base of the unit.

Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great now! But I must say that I have seen better engineering in childs' toys!

SOURCE: DGB-600BC

I have had the Cuisinart DGB-600BC for a bit over a year. The coffee grinds, and then sometime during the brewing cycle, it will go, "beep beep, beep beep, beep beep..." on and on.

I think I have traced the problem to the latch on the top lid that you open to access the bean hopper. I believe the latch sticks and doesn't close the lid tightly enough. It will appear to be closed, but the latch isn't all the way in place.

So, there is a small screw on the inside of the latch in the lid. Carefully unscrew this, remove the screw, latch, and the small spring. Remember which way the latch faces.

With a warm damp paper towel, clean the latch and the slot in the lid that the latch goes into. Reassemble, and make sure the screw is not so tight that the latch doesn't move freely.

This should solve your problem.

Will the coffee maker work without the charcoal water filter?


Hi,
Yes, the coffee maker will still work... the charcoal filter is just there to help make the coffee taste better...with most waters it does not matter...high chlorine content water is where it makes the most difference..

Coffee doesn't brew full pot


Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Filter machine: I suggest that you check the hose connection between the water reservoir and the heating unit - it may not be connected or may have a hole in it or the clamp may have fallen off.

Contact cuisinart and see if the will replace it under warrenty. This happened to mine, but they would not replace mine because it was a refurbished model. I am going to rip mine apart to see if I can fix it this weekend.
