Question about Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder

1 Answer

Filter basket door opens during coffee making.

After the grinder stops grinding the beans and the coffee starts pouring, the filter basket door opens and the coffee spills all over the place. I double check that the door is completely closed each time and something causes it to pop open.

    I have already checked that nothing is blocking the latch/door. Sometimes it opens sometimes it doesn't. We usr the coffeemaker 7 days a week and at least 2 to 3 times a week it spills.

Sounds like there is a bad relay, that is shorting out, and releasing the filter basket accidentally. Also, check to make sure that there is nothing blocking the latch that holds the filter basket in place.

Your grinder needs cleaning- maybe oily beans got used and/or storing beans in refrig/freezer? Both are a problem for grinder. Also, grinder should not be set to "fine"- it will definitely cause clogging and the situation you point out. ----------- The powder from the coffee grounds seems to get caked in the grinder. The only way to get it out is to run hot water into the little opening where the grounds funnel into the filter basket. --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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.

Blade turns slowly and will not grind.


1. This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems unless you need a factory part for repair.
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.

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.

I have a grind and brew and can't get the grinding basket out to wash.


Open the reservoir lid. Remove the grinder basket lid by using the recessed area on each side of the lid. Then remove Grinder Basket. Open Filter Basket Door. Remove Filter Basket Cover, Filter Basket and Filter Basket holder. The grinder basket, grinder basket lid, filter basket and filter basket cover can be washed in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or cleaned in the upper rack of the dishwasher. Dry all parts after every use.

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.
