SOURCE: Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill stopped grindin

We are on our second and last machine; after this DBM 8 goes out, I am going to find the most basic grinder I can and stick with it. That said, I fixed ours by removing the clear plastic reservoir where the ground coffee ends up, and then removing the build-up of coffee grounds around the exit chute where the ground beans enter the reservoir.
So, slide the reservoir out, just as you would when emptying it in to your coffee maker and set it aside. Have a flashlight ready when you tilt the grinder forward. On the back side you will see the hole where the ground beans empty into the reservoir. Take a toothpick and get rid of all the clay-like coffee reside that has built-up around that hole. Use a can of dusting air, if possible, (the aerosol "can" type used to blow dust particles from your computer) and blow away all possible ground coffee residue in the hole and around it. This will allow the reservoir to seat snug and flush again. This process fixed ours and I don't know why for sure, other than I suspect, the clay like build-up of coffee grounds, over time prevents the reservoir from seating properly and it has to seat perfectly to work. Good luck.

SOURCE: coffee grinder not working

My burr grinder also stops if the ground spout (where the coffee shoots out) is clogged. I use my grinder for an espresso machine so i always have the setting on the finest and so with the oils and the fine grind it clogs this spout pretty often. I"d check yours out too (ie remove the coffee ground bin and you can see the spout. If it is clogged uplug the machine and take a tooth pick and un clogg it. Don't jam the tooth pick in there to deep you don't want it to get shuved into the grinder wheels.

How do i clean dbm-8 grinder


Do yourself a favor and got the right kind of grinder for the coffee you drink. If you have a dry coffee use a grinder. High oils in some coffee need the blade type of grinder. Usually you can tell by looking inside the bad. See oily coating get a blade type.

Cuisinart DBM-8 coffee grinder started by itself.


Mine did it as well. I had an electrician out to check out the outlet. He replaced the outlet, but it still has done it. It freaks me out, so I unplug it after use.

Make sure that the coffee ground container is fully inserted. You may need to make sure there are no grounds are keeping it from seating properly. Use something soft such as a toothpick to clean it thoroughly...Good Luck.

When grinding coffee beans the grinder is not dropping the beans into the grinder part. I have to stay and shake or bang the grinder on counter to get the beans to fall through.


you must screw off the burr holder plate screw (in center) you will order one special screw, drill shaped, when the burrs roll it will mix and take down the coffee beans. That is solution i applied to many grinders. PS: beware the direction of burrs must be coordinated with new screw.

Grinder fell. Black "button" inside broke off.


Use just about any 2-part epoxy, clean parts with rubbing alcohol first to remove coffee oil and get a good bond.

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.
