Re: DGB-600BC

I have had the Cuisinart DGB-600BC for a bit over a year. The coffee grinds, and then sometime during the brewing cycle, it will go, "beep beep, beep beep, beep beep..." on and on.

I think I have traced the problem to the latch on the top lid that you open to access the bean hopper. I believe the latch sticks and doesn't close the lid tightly enough. It will appear to be closed, but the latch isn't all the way in place.

So, there is a small screw on the inside of the latch in the lid. Carefully unscrew this, remove the screw, latch, and the small spring. Remember which way the latch faces.

With a warm damp paper towel, clean the latch and the slot in the lid that the latch goes into. Reassemble, and make sure the screw is not so tight that the latch doesn't move freely.

This should solve your problem.

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.

No lights come on. Only get three black dashes on

Took it apart and saw several problems. Could not get the parts. Had this one for seven years. Used it every day. Got good use out of it.
Looked around for another new coffee maker of this type. Amazon had one for $75 and free shipping. With a $30 rebate.

Wattage of a Cuininart DGB-600

The consensus seems to be that it is 1025 Watts, although I have a hard time believing it - not even a stand mixer is 1025 watts.

Coffee doesn't brew full pot

Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Unplug for 20 minutes or longer - this one has a longer than normal reset.

Won't start

DGB-300 - continuously beeping indicates that something is out of place - either the grind basket isn't exactly in place, the filter basket is loose, the water filter holder is out of place, or the lid of the coffee maker is open.

Power surge fried our unit

Contact cuisinart and see if the will replace it under warrenty. This happened to mine, but they would not replace mine because it was a refurbished model. I am going to rip mine apart to see if I can fix it this weekend.
