This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

    I also soaked the removable burr in a descaling solution. Be sure it is dry before grinding.

Try this set grind on coarsest setting, then turn on, it is possible that the grounds chute is blocked. Using a courser grind might force the chute open.

As I can see, what happens is that some coffee grains stucks in the way from the upper pot to the grinding wheel. This is not something usual, but possible if coffee grains are too big and are placed across the entry of the mill. Try cleaning more deep with some old toothbrush. Look for a clean and even surface of the duct.
Other cause might be a loosen mill hub/grinding wheel off the motor shaft, which would require dissassemble of the appliance to be repaired.

This happened to me this morning. Air blasted it, then cleaned it out w/alcohol which took care of the problem. Coffee apparently had become so compacted around the hammer heads, not allowing any ground coffee through.

Hi there, you have some kind of blockage, If the beans are going down, you need to remove the brewer unit and wash it, if the beans arent going down the exit of the grinder is blocked and needs to be removed, cleaned and replaced

Remove brew unit and check the grounds chute from the grinder, if that is clear, then re-insert unit, then when the grinder is grinding adjust to a coarser grind.

Coffee grinder on brew and grind won't work


Make sure the slot between the grind basket and filter basket is clean and free of grounds - then inspect the area near the grinder motor - use the brush that came supplied with the Cuisinart to clean that area out. Once thoroughly cleaned, try one more time to Grind. Let me know if it works.
