SOURCE: CCM-16 Series Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill (Coffee 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.

SOURCE: Stuck Grinder Bowl

This happened to mine this morning. I was so frustrated because the reason I bought this was because of the removeable bowl. My bf got it off but he broke off a piece of plastic (he is pretty sure the piece of plastic was on the bowl part).

I put it back on and it kind still worked- I think I will just need to get a replacement bowl now - but it was hard to get off again.

When I tried to get it off the second time, I moved it into the "unlocked" postion and then manipulated the the blade part while pulling and it came off - but of course mine was broken already.

There appears to be two areas where it locks - on the base and a part on the bowl. I think somehow they get out of synch.

The problem is not with the base I think but with the bowl.

Although, now that it is "sorta" broken - I can't remember what parts were supposed to be loose before and which ones were not. The blade part of the bowl is very loose now. My boyfriend is pretty sure the plastic broke off the bowl part so I am going to get another bowl. I hope that solves my problem!

SOURCE: cuisinart burr coffee grinder

The best solution I have was referred to me by a mate of mine who services commercial coffee machines.

Step 1. Remove the base of the grinder... this is actually the hardest aspect of this task... as there is one tamper-proofing screw... if you can't get the correct star-hex screw driver I recommend drilling the screw out.
Step 2. Once the base is off you will see the main shaft of the grinders motor. The shaft has a star washer set in behind hew nut, the end of the shaft has a slot cut into for a flat bladed screwdriver. Hold the nut with a pair of pliers & you can adjust the shaft positioning (& hence the burr attached to the motor) by about 3mm....

You will need to experiment to find the correct level of fineness as you require.

If you need further information send me an e-mail as I'd be happy to forward more detailed instructions.

Good Luck.

Cheers.......

SOURCE: My cuisinart burr coffee grinder will not turn on

This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.

Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)

Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.

Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.

You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.

Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.

Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(

If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!

SOURCE: cuisinart coffee grinder keeps clogging

Unplug first. Unscrew the top. You need a long thin screw driver Phillips head is the best. Pock around the exit and entrance where the coffee beans are ground. Remember, the better the coffee and you will get more clumping of the beans. I works great. It is pain. The Chicago Clout man exits.

My Dremel max won't start


Check and replace brushes as necessary. Also, check that the actual electrical switch is functional. I had to add a drop of crazy glue on the tip of the interior plastic handle housing that supports/puts pressure on the electrical switch to keep it in position. The off/on thumb slider actually extends well into the housing and activates the electric switch by moving back and forth. Over time, the plastic wears and does not plunge the on off switch button. A drop of glue on the tip of the plastic post extends it & causes enough pressure to make the electric switch to function again. Brushes (filed to fit) and glue = good as new Dremel :o)

If the fuel line and filter are in good shape then it will probably need the carb rebuilt or replaced. Check the fuel line first. The ethanol in gas eats these up badly.

Fill beans


the coffee beans are not entering in the grinder disks and since they rotate without coffee the machine understands that their is no beans. You need to clean the grinder disk and grinding coffee funel to bee sure their nothing blocking the coffee movements. Use a vaccum cleaner and try to clean everything in grinder and grinder exits. Try also the machine by regulating thegriding to more gross coffee and when it will start grinding normal then you can udjust step by step back to grinding position you have at the begeining.

Blade will not spin


While I don't have this brand or model of grinder, (coffee beans, spices?), I use a small elec. grinder for grinding coffee beans and unless the grinder and cover or perfectly lined up and locked in place, it willnot grind, a safety feature. Check and make sure everything is lined up so it closed with all the lines in place and the grinder is also put into the lock position.
