Question about Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker
I have tried to open the base and have not figured out how. Is there a way to get the Coffee Maker repaired?
I just had good luck pulling the grinder bottom piece forward while pulling directly up on the blade mechanism. Hope this helps.

Water leaking from base of unit: I ran 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 carafe of water through the coffeemaker. Then repeated. This helped a little with leaking but leaking continued. I called Cuisinart and they said the handle of the carafe has to be centered in the opening after placing the carafe onto the heater base. The handle of the carafe will line up 'dead center' of the word Cuisinart above it on the unit.
We have made several full carafes of coffee, using beans or grounds, with NO leaks! Yay! Maybe this will help.

The problem is that the heated water is leaking out of the drip chamber. This is caused by the fact that they were to cheap to use stainless steel screws that hold the chamber top to the bottom. The screws have rusted and the hot water can escape the drip area and runs down next to a plastic tube that delivers the hot water to the top of the coffee maker from the heating element. To repair you have to remove two screws that are on the underside of the hot water drip area above the coffee filter. Then there are 3 tabs that have to be released and separate the cover that has the strength control from its base. When you pop off this cover, you will see the remains of 4 screws that are badly rusted. I used a small ez-out and drill to remove the remains. Be very careful to not drill the pilot hole through the top. I got lucky and was able to remove the screws and replaced them with stainless steel. An alternate method would be to use a food grade 100% silicon adhesive and glue the to back together. This method may leak in the future, so try to get the old screws out first.
I would recommend a MR coffee $30 to $50 models, on sale, for coffee before I would ever buy this European designed junk. I took this thing apart and just shook my head and said that you can tell things that aren
