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

I have only had my cuisinart coffee grinder for a couple years or less and the first problem was that the switch that determined the amount of cups quit working, so I got over that by holding it down while the coffee beans ground. Now the grinder has completely quit working. It makes a small whirring sound but that is all. Manual that came with it doesn't offer help for this type problem.

    Similar to the problem stated by another individual on November 7th, my grinder (purchased a little over one year ago) has quit working. It began with the switch that determines the amount to grind...the past two weeks, it would work intermittently and sometimes I would have to just hold the grind button down. This morning it just completely stopped working.

    I just bought my CCM-16 and have used it for a week. My wife use the switch to turn it off during a grind and it now will not turn on.

    The grinding wheel is not jammed. Any suggestions. Fortunately, I can still return it.

    I have had my grinder about a little over a year.. and the "on" switch went haywire and the thing just goes on and off by itself constantly for different lengths of time too so no pattern... If I just turn it off after each grind it is okay but kinda ruins the purpose...tried to unscrew th4e screws to see if I could fix switch.. it is impossible to get into the area.. sealed at factory...

    My grinder just stopped today with the same problem you described. I think my grinder is about 2 years old.

    Our only problem is that we must hold the switch down. I cannot see any way to disassemble the switch. Would appreciate any help.

I agree, mine lasted until the warranty expired and it died. I had switch problems, and the neck of the reservoir that holds the other half of the bur head completely disintegrated. Made of cheap plastic construction. Got a new top, fixed the micro switch and then found that the circuit board was bad. Called Cusinart and they won't sell me the part, but they think they will sell me a new one. (HA!)

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.

Mine died after 6 months don't get this grinder

My CCM grinder eventually stopped working altogether and I had to throw it away. Amazon comments says this is common. But while my grinder was working, it gave the same symptoms. This problem was caused by beans getting jammed and the outlet from the burr wheel being clogged. If that's the problem, cleaning it out is simple.

Yes it unscrews, just turn it counter clockwise and it will come out. Don't be surprised if the plastic neck and burr head is broken because this is an inferior design and needs to be trashed. I will never buy another Cuisinart product.

Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave

Colinchee, this sounds like a rather complicated electrical engineering issue. Why not buy a coffee grinder in the UK design and rated for your power? It might even be cheaper and the guarantee will cover design flaws. Regards.

Coffee does not go from grind to brew basket. Plugs..must clean every time

Try running some unflavored panko breadcrumbs or rice through it. That will clean it up and remove any oil that's causing sticking. Try to use less oily coffee in the future to avoid this.

Search Cuisinart's website for DBM-8 - that model has exactly the same parts as your Cuisinart. If you call them, they may even cover it under warranty.

Cuisinart grinder wobbles

The model that you have is Costco's equivalent of the DBM-8 - the parts are exactly the same, so enter "DBM-8" as your model # on the Cuisinart website for parts.
