My grinder unit got stuck in my DGB 300 and when I finally got it out a spring flew out and the attachment that stops the coffee from coming out fell off. Where does the spring go?

I had the problem also.  First, I cleaned the area very well of the caramelized coffee gunk. where the grinder goes.  I also filed away a few degraded areas on the grinder's plastic housing.  Haven't had the problem since.

You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.

I just called Cuisinart and they will send me another brew basket for my DCC-100 (it has a Brew Pause valve also) for $9.14 (part + S&H). Did you try to contact Cuisinart?

Put the whole brewer in your refrigerator freezer for 2 hours. The coffee basket then will come off. Take the entire brewer unit to your shower and rinse it thoroughly. Now look at the basket and where it goes on the brewer. You will see a little spindle and 2 sets of helical gears. Spread white lithium lube on the spindle and the gears. It won't get in your coffee because it's nowhere near the water flow. This should solve the stuck basket problem.

SOURCE: We have a Cuisinart DGB-900

try cleaning the grind chute again. if problem persists:
this is a cronic problem with the DGB900BC even after cleaning. the problem is the gate or trap to the grounds needs to open/remain open during grinding or all backs up and jams. my unit opens the door (correctly) during the rotation but closes just before grinding (over-rotation?). Cuisinart is not aware of this problem (800-726-0190). please call them; i just have.

DGB-600 won't stop beeping and is missind grinder


The grinder cover has a white pin as a part of the cover that acts as a go between for the plastic molded post on the cover and a contact switch in the unit. Without the cover in place the molded post is not long enough to reach the contact switch and "tell" the machine it's o.k. to brew. It will beep incesssantly and do nothing. Get a replacement cover, or jury rig something to act as a replacement for the grinder cover pin. You can manually push in the switch to get it to stop beeping, but it will spring back out as soon as you release it.

DGB 500 Grinder


You may try opening the front cover first and removing the filter then after opening the top lid, remove the clear grinder cover and lift the grinder from the rear. After you get it out be sure to clean the motor drive shaft and the bottom of the grinder. then use a trace of vegetable oil to lubricate the motor shaft where is attaches to the grinder.

We are on our second coffee maker and it makes great coffee.

Need schematic to reassemble...


The filter basket is orderable from Cuisinart and costs somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 to $6 - there is no service manual for that particular part of the coffee maker.

Coffee basket


Called Cuisinart - they said to remove the basket ( I unplugged and then used pliers to move the blade/shaft up and down until it wiggled loose ) ... use soap and water to remove coffee oil (the real problem) and then pour a little vegetable oil into the female end where the motor engages the grinder blade to lubricate.

DGB-300


Cuisinart CS says to pour hot water around the outside of the grinder, that didn't help me at all. I finally used 1 foot of cord (heavy string) and made a loop, putting one end around the base of the grinder blade and then hooked the claw of a hammer in the other. Then yank up on the hammer.

Cuisinart BGB-300


I just got mine to work. It seems that so much water condensation gets into the grinder that there was rust stopping the grinder from moving. Just remove all the parts, especially the blade and basket holder assembly. Take a pair of pliers and twist the grinder stem manually to loosen the rust. Turn it a good number of times and then test it out. I didn't want to use WD-40 on something my wife uses everyday. Good luck.
