Question about Cuisinart DGB-500 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Won't stop beeping

After cleaning my coffee maker the lid is now warped from the steam. The warped lid causes the sensors to go off continuously as it does not think the lid is closed. For now I have a coffee mug pressing between the lid and my cupboards but that won't last for long as the lid is continuing to warp and the other side is lifting now as well. Is there anyway to de-activate this particular sensor? Cuisinart has offered me a replacement unit but I think that's kind of pointless when I know this same thing will happen again. Thanks!

You could open the coffee maker up and disconnect they speaker making the noise but if it is used for any other purpose that in turn will not work either. For example if your system is made to beep when the pot is brewed or when the time hits the hour etc. disconnecting the speaker would obviously stop the audible for those other functions also. The speaker could be and would be small probably extremely so. I am not sure what procedure you use when cleaning your system but I run vinegar and water through once then just water twice to cleanse the vinegar and never have had a problem with the lid warping (incase you decide to get the replacement). Note: I wash the pot separately. By the way this is a general all-purpose type answer not reserved to your make and model which I am not personally familiar with.

You could try jamming a small bit of dowel or something into the hole where the lid pushes onto the little trigger..won't be a great solution without getting a replacement lid.

SOURCE: When brewing, it steams and spits the water out

this is what happened to me, I didn't have the filter basket all the way down so the pot lid didn't open the valve that lets coffee flow so the coffee and grounds ran into the water resevior and plugged the filter, so I did the worst thing possible and took the filter out so the grounds got into the check valve that keeps the hot water going in the right direction. that makes it spit and sputter and brew slow.
after trying to flush it out forever I tore the metal plate on the bottom off and unhooked the rubber hoses (don't do this unless you have a needle nose pliers, you'll never get them back on) one should go to the brew head and the other is the water inlet, this has the check valve. you can tell which is which by blowing through them and seeing which one goes to the brew head. if you can blow through the other one the check valve is stuck open, I blew air into it with an air compresor and this forced the check valve shut and now it works fine. I know this is the same symptons as calcium deposits but I had cleaned it twice.
try flushing it with water first but sometimes it takes extreme measures

SOURCE: flashing

We had this problem. I can't remember all the details but we followed the manual's directions and ultimately the flashing light would come on again. We went through the same procedure a number of time over the day, and each time the self-clean light would go off, but then when we tried to make coffee it would do exactly as you described. Finally we gave up and uplugged it, ready to throw it in the garbage. But then, I was going to call Cuisinart's number (go to their web-site) and I thought I'd try it again so I could describe exactly what happened to the customer service rep. Guess what? It worked! I think what may have happened is, by unplugging it, we re-booted its computer. So try unplugging it and replugging it in.

Check first that both filters (the water filter and the grounds filter) are in place correctly. Also check that the white tab in the grind cover moves freely when the lid is closed. (You can use a fork tine to test.) If that doesn't solve your beeping issue, contact http://www.cuisinart.com/support/us.html or 1-800-726-0190. I did and they are sending me a new unit at no charge.

SOURCE: my cuisinart coffee maker leaks

1. Purchase (1) a couple of feet of 3/8" ID by 5/8" OD temperature resistant silicone tubing from a beer/wine-making supplier, or online through Ebay, and (2) a couple of hose clamps big enough for the tubing.

2. Unplug the coffee maker and turn it upside down on some old newspaper.

3. Using a T10 Torx screwdriver, remove the 4 screws that attach the the bottom plate of the coffee-maker, and remove the bottom plate.

4. Unclamp the two orange/red hoses from the C-shaped heater, and carefully pull/remove the other end of the two hoses. One hose is a water intake hose from the water tank to a C-shaped heater element, while the other hose is water outlet hose that goes from the C-shaped heater element to the sprinkler assembly.

5. Carefully remove the small plastic stop check valve from the water inlet hose end close to the C-shaped metal water heater; and take care to not drop/lose the little round plastic ball inside the plastic stop/check valve, while noting which way the stop-check valve is oriented in the hose.

6. Cut two pieces of your food-grade / temperature resistant silicone tubing that are the same length as the old hoses.

7. After reinstalling the stop-check valve in the new inlet hose/tubing, reinstall the two sections of hose/tubing, and use two hose clamps to attach the new tubing to the C-shaped water heater.

N.B. Remember that the stop check valve s/b oriented such that hot water in the C-shaped heater element can't go back to the water tank.

7. The ends of the hose that attach to the C-shaped metal water heater s/b clamped, while the other ends just push onto the water tank and sprinkler assembly with a with a little pushing and twisting.

See http://www.cocosvariety.com/2011/11/fixing-cuisinart-coffee-maker-alternate.html , as that is the original information source for this posting and the image below. i.e. Credit goes to Coco's Variety !.

Also, in the image below, the hose on the left is the water inlet hose, while the hose on the right is the water outlet hose.

Why does my mr coffee beeps while cleaning


The coffeemaker should only beep either when it detects that it has emptied the reservoir or when the two-hour warming timer expires. If it beeps at other times, but stays on, the reservoir sensor has gone bad (as did my last one). The coffeemaker should continue to work fine otherwise though.

Em-200iHR. after starting brewing, it stops and starts beeping. won't run full cycle. tried purging water. no success. happens intermittently


Try pouring a solution of equal parts of white vinegar and water into the machine and let it cook for a while. Several times through the machine will dissolve any calcium and coffee build up and "may" correct the situation. Note this is also the way to clean coffee percolaters and steam irons

Cannot get "beeping" to stop


Try the following if you opened the cover and unit beeps. This will happen if you set up the coffee maker and then decide that you want to add more water and coffee before starting it:

You will notice that there is a small white (typically) button on the clear cover of the coffee grinder. When it is in place and the lid is closed, the button depresses a safety interlock inside a small plastic post to prevent the grinder from working without the clear cover on and the lid closed. Quite sensible from a safety perspective. Depress the white button to reset the switch or take a pen and carefully do the same. The beeping should stop.

Won't start


DGB-300 - continuously beeping indicates that something is out of place - either the grind basket isn't exactly in place, the filter basket is loose, the water filter holder is out of place, or the lid of the coffee maker is open.

The beep indicates numerous things. If the top lid is open, it will beep, if you try to depress the brew or timer buttons.There is a button next to the grinder unit, that gets depressed when you close the lid. Check the lid to make sure the tab on the lid hasn't broken. The beep also indicates that brew cycle has finished, although, that is supposed to be only 5 beeps.

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.

Coffee maker beeping


Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.

The constant beeping means that something is out of place. Take apart the coffeemaker parts completely and put them back in their proper place (don't forget to close the lid). The beep should stop. If it doesn't stop, unplug the unit for one hour and call Cuisinart to see if it is still in warranty.
