SOURCE: coffee ground are coming out of the k-cup area

Make sure the needle in the bottom of the K cup holder is not missing, broken or bent. Also, look at your used K cup when it comes out. Is there a hole in the top and the bottom? It sounds like the pressure is building up within the K cup due to a backup at the bottom of it. This could also occur if the bottom needle hole is obstructed. Be careful...the needles are sharp!

SOURCE: Cuisinart DGB900BCC coffee machine. Problem is

I've solved my problem. Called Cuisinart customer service and spoke with a rep. The filter basket must be aligned. Shouldn't push down when putting basket into position. Also, cleaning underneath the bean grinder with pipe cleaner helped.

SOURCE: Saeco Incanto Deluxe brewunit jammed

Remove the dredge drawer. Open the door. On the left side of the brewing unit, and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Grab the handle and pull carefully, but firmly with a quick ****. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide that piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position.
To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. (You can insert your key into the hole in the front and twist the key to return the brew unit to the center. Line up the 2 diamonds and it centered) If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not, locate the slide on the left side of the brew unit,(it should be hanging down, a flat rectangular piece attached to the cylinder) and push the slide to the right until it does. Push the press button and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door and turn on the machine without having the brew group in, but you must have your drip tray and dredge drawer in. Turn the machine on. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and remove the tray, now insert the brew group and replace the tray.

SOURCE: Coffee not brewing after grinding

After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)

My Saeco Royal Professional says coffee beans empty although it is full


hi,
there is a small measuring device between the grinder and the brewer, that measures grind coffee flowing into the brewer. the brewer is the removable part on the right side of the machine.
it looks like that the measuring device is clocked or in worse case broken!.
my suggestion:
1.open the door on the right side
2. remove carefully the brewer/brew unit
3. clean it under warm running water
4. clean out the surrounding area, coffee pan etc.
5. check the measuring device for clocked coffee. it is square, has a small flap and easy to access with the door open. take a soft brush and clean the area, there might be a lot of ground coffee!
6. carefully re-insert the brewer acc. to manual, do not force in place.
7. close the door and use the unit.
you might also remove all beans and clean the burrs, the ground coffee outlet and check that it is free and not clocked as well. otherwise no ground-coffee will reach the measuring device!
good luck!

Leaking water under the drip tray


First, be sure to regularly push a straightened paper clip in that nozzle! It can get clogged with coffee grinds quite easily.

Then call Sunbeam and tell them you want the waste chute extender. It's a little plastic tube that fits over the nozzle to extend it further into the drip tray. Truth be told, you could probable push a 2cm piece of 3mm aquarium pump air tubing over it.

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.

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 machine grinds coffee without stopping for what seems a long time, then the bean light comes on and it will not make a cup of coffee. I took out the brew unit and cleaned it, now the brew unit light...


Hi
You have a couple things wrong now.

First you have a blockage in you grind passage. Try removing the brew group. Then inside on the roof of the machine where the brew unit was setting there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it will drop coffee. This will clear an opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder (towards the rear of the machine). Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute.
Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. There is a lever on the right side below the bean hopper. Push the lever back to the largest number. You can push the lever to a larger number any time but it has to be grinding to pull to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can pull back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running.
The second thing brew unit missing.
Open the door. Push hard on the upper left side of the brew unit. When you hear a click, close the door and the light should be out.

My Delonghi Magnifica door was popping open too when the machine would cycle on or off. I found that the shoot on the inside of the door was stuck. This chute is spring loaded. The chute guides the coffee from the diffuser to the dispenser ports. I think it must have been coffee build up on the back side of the chute making it stick. So when the diffuser passed by during cycling the chute would not move out of the way. This makes the door pop open. I cleaned the chute so that it moves freely and no more trouble.

Cuisinart 12-cup grinder coffemaker all gummed up


It is endemic to this unit - condensation builds up in the grind chute, which makes the grinds stick to the walls of the chute. Decalcifying with vinegar/water helps, but only in an indirect way - by keeping the inside tubing clean, decalcifying generally allows the water to flow through the machine without obstruction. Inside tubing that has calcium, lime deposits built up obstructs water, and makes it flow through the machine slower - when water flows more slowly through the machine, the machine steams off the water at a higher rate, hence more condensation builds up in the grind chute walls.

Generally, i have found all Cuisinart coffee and espresso makers to be high maintenance to a greater or lesser extent, but the Grind-n-Brews have the highest cleaning/maintenance requirement.

Cuisinart grinder-brewer coffee maker


Use the bursh that came supplied with the coffeemaker to clean around the exterior of the motor area, underneath the grind basket. Make sure the chute is clean as well.
