Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

I have a Cuisinart Automatic Grinder and Brewer which seems to have a mind of its own. The grinder will come on by its self. If you push the "ON" button it will not start the brewing cycle unless you press the button on and off several times.

You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.

Use the bursh that came supplied with the coffeemaker to clean around the exterior of the motor area, underneath the grind basket. Make sure the chute is clean as well.

SOURCE: My Krups Grinder Brewer has stopped pulling water

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7000@flightsystems.biz.

My cuisinart conical burr coffee grinder has started to turn it's self on every few hours


Electronic failure. If you like the grinder, plug it into a plug-in timer that only allows it to run when YOU want it to run. I have a timer like that on my coffeemaker so we don't forget to turn it off & let it run empty all day long. There are cheap timers available that will turn on for three hours if you push a little button, then shut off until next time you push the button. VERY handy, and they give you a selection of one hour, three hours, or six hours. For your purpose, one hour sounds fine. Or a wind-up type timer that stays on for only fifteen minutes, just long enough to grind coffee. Or unplug it when you're done. Or put it on a power strip with a switch.

Brewed coffee overflowed on to warmer plate. Now water does not heat and flow and warmer plate does not heat up.


Unless it is an expensive brewer, get a new one. The brewer needs the bottom plate to heat in order for it to work at all. Should be imune getting wet though, but sounds like bad heating element.

It wont stop beeping


Is it still beeping? ;) It will beep if you have the automatic brewing programed and the grinder and it's lid are not in place.Once you have put the grinder back in place, push the small white button down that is on the grinder lid. The beeping will stop. Don't press the program button again or it will start beeping again...but if you do, just push that white button again.

Cuisinart DGB-700BC grinds but no grounds in the basket.


Hi there, you have some kind of blockage, If the beans are going down, you need to remove the brewer unit and wash it, if the beans arent going down the exit of the grinder is blocked and needs to be removed, cleaned and replaced

CCM-16 Series Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill (Coffee Grinder)


Actually, I've never had any problems with my grinder. Got it for a very low price at Costco about 2 years ago. The switch has never failed to function and I've often slid the switch over to the left to stop the grinding before the designated time (I was in a hurry for my coffee) , but this hasn't seemed to negatively effect the function of the switch. It just keeps working.
