    Had the coffee maker 2 years and it has worked great. now the grinding part isn't working. You can hear the whirling but no coffee gets ground and then the out of beans light comes on. I have taken it apart as much as you can. I cleaned the entire coffee maker and i pulled the bean holder off and cleaned down in there where the grinder is. The grinder is going around but it is not moving the beans.??

When the grinder spins free and fast it only means that fresh beans are not feeding into the burrs. This happens when:
1- Grind setting is too fine and beans cannot enter the grinder mechanism.
2- Use of oily dark roast beans can clog the ground coffee chamber and preven the fresh beans entering the grinder.
3- The ground coffee chamber outlet is clogged due to oily beans or too fine coffee setting.

When you cleaned the grinder you may not have cleaned the coffee outlet to the doser on the left. You can clean the outlet to open the passage of coffee grounds to collect in the dosing device..
After cleaning the outlet, you should next make sure that coffee grounds are not packed in the doser. The doser is inside the door right above the brew group.
To access the doser:
1- Remove water tank.
2- Remove the brew group.
3- Lay the machine on its back for full view of the doser.
4- Pull the doser door open (it is like an Attic door.
5- Keep the doser door open and clean the inside with a brush. The outlet from the grinder is on the right side with a wire wiper cleaner that moves across the grinder outlet fills from the grinder. This opening.
Use a brush to clean the doser.
On the left of the doser space there is a plastic flap that is pushed to the left when coffee grounds fill the doser.
At certain distance push back (1/4") the notch on top of the flap pushes the doser micro switch pin to stop the grinder. Push the flap gently to the left to make sure that it is moving well. With each push back of the flap, one can hear the feeble click sound from the micro switch.
When the above cleaning is done, try the grinding.
If the conical burrs have not been replaced for over 2500 grinds, it is time to do so.

The above grinder and grinder doser cleaning instructions are available as download files on the following page link:

One can find many useful maintenance guides on one page.
Good luck.

When I press the brew button in lights up, I hear the pump going but no coffee???

Barring a serious mechanical problem, I'd say check water level, make sure you aren't using a turkish grind, and clean the machine by running white vinegar through it. 9 bar machines can't push thought a turkish grind very well. Calcium from tap water can clog the machine.

Our DGB-700 has stopped grinding the beans. The motor sounds very weak. I have taken it apart and cleaned thoroughly with no good results. Can it be repaired or is it just time to "move on"...

I use Capresso CoffeeTeam model #454 10 cup 50 oz digital coffeemaker burr grinder combination with four grind settings. Now it is more than 5 years old, works every single day without any problem. Capresso has the great customer support. Its price for the refurbished item is compatible with the price of your Cuisinart. I am not sure it is the solution for you but I am very happy with my coffeemaker.

Coffee not brewing after grinding

After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)

Using the pre-ground coffee option, no coffee

The grind might be too fine or too much coffee is being added to the chamber. Try it without coffee if it works, the try with a coarser grind.

Incanto Sirius - grinds but cannot hear coffee getting ground

The chute is clogged or the grind is too fine on the machine. To clean chute remove the brew unit and check to the right, clean chute.

Re: no coffee comes out after the grinding and loading stages!

Sounds like your coffee grinder is grinding too fine. I would up the size of your grinder. The larger the numbers the coarser the grinds. Also, should descale the machine if you haven't in a while. One of these two things may help.

Also, if the above two things do not work you can try to clean out your grinder using the instruction #2 posted on the website

Goes into 'Self Test' after grinding the beans or even using the pre-ground mode

You have a power control board(PCB) problem. The machine is restarting while trying to make coffee which would be like you turning the power off then on again. The only way to correct this would be to change the board.

If you would like to order the board you can do so by contacting us at
