Question about Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder
Grinder basket will not come out so that I can clean it!
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

I found a real solution after a few attempts. The problem appears to be the brass sleeve inside the grinder shaft or the plastic shaft coming from the coffee maker expanding over time. I re-drilled the brass sleeve and it seems to be working just fine now. No more sticking. It doesn't take much material removal to do the trick, just a few thousandths of an inch.

How com cuisinart hasn't found a solution for this...we pay good money for this product an still need a "tool" to take out what should easily come out? I spent money on a new grinder basket thinking it was old and just getting stuck...

I am just pulling as hard as I can and the basket does come out. So far I have not broken it.

Solution #5 by eclipsh worked really well, I just found a screwdriver head for my cordless drill that was fit into the hole snuggly, then held onto the grinder portion (wearing safety gloves of course) and drilled a bit until it was loose. Don't hit the plastic on the outside, as this is what the machine grabs onto, the metal part is just for placement of the basket.

My model DGB 600 has recently started shutting off halfway through a 10 cup brew. It's like the heasting element kicks out on overload. I re-start and it will make it until maybe 1 cup of water left. Anybody else have trouble like this. It's only about 1 year old

Had the same problem. Make sure the grinder basket, especially the under side of the basket, is completely dry after cleaning it.

Use shorter side of a allen wrench to pry off, quick and ez

It should come off very easy. This happened to me and they had me return it for a new one. Now, this just happened again. Very frustrating.
