Question about Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder
I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE BUT WAS ABLE TO REMOVE IT WHEN THE COFFEE MAKER COOLED.
ALSO I RECENTLY HAD PURCHASED A NEW GRIND BASKET AND IT IS THE ONE THAT IS STUCK.
I suffered with a stuck grider unti for a long time and just solved the problem..... Remove the filter basket and through the front door look up twords the back left. You can see where the grinder unit sits. There is a slot area where you can stick a screw driver under the grinder unit and pry it up. Do this in a jiggling motion and make sure you are well under the grinding unit, doing so on the edge of the grinder unit underneath will not give you enough suface to work with, in fact you will just bend or crack the edge. Looking in from low on the front (kneeling on floor with unit on counter, worked for me) will let you locate where the screw driver or smal pry tool needs to go. Mine was stuck for a very long time and No amount of pulling or prying from the top would work, I made it pop out in a matter of seconds using this technique from the bottom! Good luck, I'm going to finish my cup of coffee now! :-) Steve
a little cooking oil on the shaft before you insert the grinder will help, spray on pam works well and is easy to do...

Mine was stuck this morning for the first time. I didn't want to chance breaking any part of the plastic basket by prying underneath, so I took a pair of pliers and clamped it around the circular top of the blade assembly. Pulled on it while wiggling it a little and it came right out. Sure enough there was a whole bean stuck down there. The reason why wiggling the basket itself doesn't loosen it is because there is a separate plastic housing surrounding the rod coming down from the blade assembly and that was the part that was jammed by the coffee beans and residue. Hope this helps.

I've had t his problem also and finally figured out what works best.
The evening before, open the lid, take out the grindsbasket, and then push up the grinder through the hole. Also manually turn the grinding blades. It should release. Sometimes a stuck ground bean causes the grinder to stick.
Now wash it thoroughly, and run water, shaking the grinder to remove stuck beans through the back side. You will be amazed at the partially ground beans that come loose!
Next, lay it on it's side and let it completely dry. It will stay fixed for a long time. I now do this regularly and haven't had a problem after I figured out this solution.
