Question about Cuisinart DGB-300 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Won't grind I have the white model. I have put whole beans in the container and water where it should be. When I push the on button I hear a noise as if the grinder wants to work but it doesn't. Should the grind off light be on or off if I want the beans to be ground? The only thing that happened was the water went through the system and was hot enough for me to make tea out of. I want to make coffee.Can you help? Thanks.

    GRINDING BLADES WILL NOT TURN ON.

    CAN SPIN BLADES WITH A FINGER, SO THE MOTOR OR BLADES ARE NOT STUCK. TRY TO START UNIT NORMALLY, IT WILL GO THROUGH THE COMPLETE CYCLE, BUT THE BLADES WILL NOT COME ON TO GRIND COFFEE. CANNOT EVEN HEAR THE BLADE MOTOT TRY TO START.

ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

SOURCE: unable to make coffee automatically using whole beans

The rivets in the back of the Jura Capresso units are actually oval security screws. The bit that removes these screws are made of a very hard metal and cost me over $50.00 two years ago. Also many people who attempt there own repairs tear off the little plastic tabs that keep everything together nice and tight. We repair Jura Capresso Krups Bosh etc. www.hotncold.com

SOURCE: Beans are too oily

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.
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. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

SOURCE: the coffee grinder on my Magic Comfort Plus is not

Hi Sounds like 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. 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 under 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.

How do I clean my burr mill (Models BMX3, BMX4, BMX5 and BMX6)?


Clean your burr mill before using it for the first time. Then, to ensure optimal mill function and durability, clean it regularly following these simple steps.
  1. Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
  2. Open the hopper lid. Empty any whole beans from the hopper. Remove the top burr mill by rotating it clockwise. For better results hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill clockwise. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel and the grinding compartment.
  3. Clean the interior recesses with a soft brush. Note: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance. BRUSH NOT INCLUDED.
  4. Wipe the whole bean hopper, its lid and the mill exterior with a damp cloth.
  5. The ground coffee chamber and lid can be washed in mild detergent and water. They both are top rack dishwasher safe. Do not immerse the mill or the whole bean hopper in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  6. After completely drying the whole bean hopper and top burr mill, replace the burr mill in position by aligning snaps with receptacle and rotating counterclockwise to lock it in position. For better results, hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill counterclockwise. Once the burr mill is in position, pull gently to check it is properly locked in position. If the burr mill comes out, repeat this step again.
  7. Replace the ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure both snap securely into place.
  8. Fill the hopper with whole beans.

How do I clean my burr mill (Models BM1 and BM3)?


Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
  1. Turn the whole bean chamber to the right until it can be lifted off the base. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel. NOTE: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance.
  2. Clean interior recesses with a soft brush (not provided).
  3. Wash the whole bean chamber and lid and the ground coffee chamber and lid in mild detergent and water. These items are only dishwasher safe on the top rack of your dishwasher. Wipe exterior with a damp cloth. Do not immerse mill in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  4. After completely drying, replace whole bean chamber. Important: when replacing whole bean chamber, screw on completely before setting grinding rate. Turn chamber clockwise (as viewed from top), until it will not turn. Fill with whole coffee beans for grinding and replace lid.
  5. Replace ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure it snaps securely into place.

I got this coffee maker from a friend with no instructions, i have no idea how to use it. I am not interested in grinding my own beans, i just need to know about where to put the filter and so on.


Use it by plug the AC cord so it has gets electric power and switch on the power button it should light indicate there is power. Put the filter on its container but twist the elevated cup carefully on right or infront, that the container where you put grinded coffee bean powder. It is where the hot water drips on coffee beans down the glass hot container where drip coffee collected.
That's it I hope I explain it clearly and solve your problem.

Jura E9 grinder spins but does not grind


I had a similar problem, and solved it by turning the grinder by hand against resistance. Apparently the grinder wasn't really turning during the cycle and needed to be cleared. If your beans are "hopping" this may be a different problem.

How do you make coffee in cafetiere 6 cups


You grind the beans quite fine

Pull up the knob on the lid till it pulls out of the top and the filter out of the glass container.

Put enough of the the ground coffee for six cups into the glass container , pour on boiling water till it reaches about one inch from the top

Put the top back on a push the knob slightly down to locate it in the top of the glass container

Give the water a few minutes to work on the beans and then gently push the knob all the way down so that the filter goes to the bottom og the glass container taking the grounds with it

Pour the coffee

Enjoy!!

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!
