Question about Cuisinart Supreme Grind CCM-16PC Grinder

6 Answers

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC coffee grinder just stopped.

I checked only two things. First, I checked is that the grinder wheel is not jammed. Second, this model has a switch in the front that is switched when the container (for the ground coffee) is clipped into position. I put a meter over that switch and it works. There is also a switch on the top that turns the unit on, but I have not been able to dissassemble the entire unit to get to it (it seems to me that a very long screwdriver would do the trick). Any ideas for going further? Is it worth pursuing given that a new unit is $45?
Thanks for the help, and great site.
Best regards,
Hal Fullmer

I just had the same problem, and careful examination revealed a horizontal (circumferencial) crack in the feed tube just above the top grinder wheel. I imagine the force of the grind is causing the crack to expand so that the wheels are jamming together creating too much friction/force for the grind to continue. Limited parts are available on cuisinart.com. Where you only need the shaft in this case, you will have to buy the entire bean chamber to get that part. About $8 plus shipping. They're showing the model as DBM-8. I'm pretty sure it's the same model as CCM-16PC that's stamped on the bottom.

My CCM16PC coffee grinder also stopped suddenly. I tried to clean the oily reside from the shoot and let it set for thrity minutes. I loaded it up (with a SMALL batch of Beans) and it then worked fine. Perhaps I was grinding too many beans and it got overheated, and then stopped. I was about ready to tear into it and "fix" and perfectly good grinder.

On my machine the problem was the safety switch. This is located on the base plate and is activated by a plastic edge on the bottom of the basket. Unplug the machine and activate the switch manually with a small screwdriver of dull knife. Then take a can of dusting air (for cleaning computers and such) and clean out all the coffee dust inside of it. After a couple of air sprays the machine started working again.. Good luck.

My CCM16PC coffee grinder also died. It worked pretty well for several years. Several times in the past it had its output shoot plugged and stopped grinding, but poking in there with a bamboo skewer unplugged it. All these Cuisinart coffee grinders seem to have the same basic construction. Two metal grinding faces screwed into plastic, one on the hopper and one in the bottom of the body. It took me a while to figure out the hopper unscrews from the unit. A long phillips is needed to remove the top of the body from the lower part. On mine the plastic where the metal grinding faces screwed into on both sided had shattered. I guess I just need to factor in a life span of about 3 years.

This issue with the threaded coffee hopper barrel seems to be a common cause of failure with this unit. There are two proximity (safety) switches in this appliance. One is at the base of the unit where the basket slides into and is probably not the problem. The other is located on the top of the unit and is activated when the the hopper is screwed into the unit. It the hopper is cracked, not enough pressure is being applied to the switch to properly close it. By simply pushing down on the hopper from the top after being threaded in to the correct grind position, I was able to make it function because the switch was closing. Hope this helps!

I also had my grinder simply stop working. However, the day before a big piece of plastic came out of it. It turned out to be from the threads of the feed tube. I wouldn't have looked there if not for the comment from Log_House

I have a Grindmaster model 805 coffee grinder. It worked flawlessly for many years, then suddenly stopped. I took it in to a repair facility and was told the switch had died. I had another machine at...


Most grinders, especially the larger professional models will eventually need to have the grinding wheels (set of 2) changed out. They do wear down. The grinder will struggle as the burrs on the wheel dull out. This increases the time it takes to grind coffee and puts a heavy electrical load. Burnt out switches, tripping breaker, overheating, and burnt coffee grounds on espresso size are all symptoms of a worn burr set.
It's common to find; stones, nails, jewelry, and small loose things found around coffee counters in the grinding wheels or burrs. Have a qualified operator remove all beans and hopper to check and brush out burr set. This should be done every day. Talk to your vendor if you find nails as they can easily correct this with a magnetic pick up.
Another cause is very oily beans. Sometimes poorly roasted beans come out extremely oily which will gum up everything from the burrs, Moving parts, and electrical components. Disassembly of entire machines may be necessary.
.Final note; since you mentioned a switch swap. It's possible the switch is underrated for use in this machine. Most will work in a pinch but like a 'spare' tire in a car, they are only ment to get you to a service center for replacement.

Need a new switch for buffalo grinder model B-8CB


That entire older Buffalo line of grinders: N-10CB, B-8CB, B-6CB, bgbr-6cb all use the same push pull switch. Most of those grinders were dual-voltage with a starter capacitor and there are 6 wires connected to a 4 contact switch. The "Jet BGS8-076" grinder switch that is used by the older Buffalo's, Galaxy, Duracraft and TestRite grinders is no longer available.
The good news is that there is a replacement switch from another manufacturer: "3030-9001 push pull switch for RDX grinders" from Wholesale Tool is a direct replacement. It has the same 4-screw contacts on the back and the same push-pull diamond pattern front plate.

How to remove bean hopper?


Yes it unscrews, just turn it counter clockwise and it will come out. Don't be surprised if the plastic neck and burr head is broken because this is an inferior design and needs to be trashed. I will never buy another Cuisinart product.

It has an 18 month warranty and I suggest you RUN to the retailer and get your money back.... Don't buy another one because they are junk.

I was grinding coffee this morning and it no longer is working. We have cleaned it, but nothing.


It is probably one of the micro switches, but if it is less than 18 months old, take it back and get your money and buy something good because these are junk.

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC suddenly decided not to burr/grind coffee. It doesn't turn on. Electrical recepticle is hot and the device is plugged in. I've cleaned all of the connections/buttons/grooves so...


Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave
