This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.

Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)

Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.

Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.

You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.

Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.

Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(

If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!

My cuisinart conical burr coffee grinder has started to turn it's self on every few hours


Electronic failure. If you like the grinder, plug it into a plug-in timer that only allows it to run when YOU want it to run. I have a timer like that on my coffeemaker so we don't forget to turn it off & let it run empty all day long. There are cheap timers available that will turn on for three hours if you push a little button, then shut off until next time you push the button. VERY handy, and they give you a selection of one hour, three hours, or six hours. For your purpose, one hour sounds fine. Or a wind-up type timer that stays on for only fifteen minutes, just long enough to grind coffee. Or unplug it when you're done. Or put it on a power strip with a switch.

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.

I put in coffee beans and used the Cuisinart coffee bean burr grinder and then after about 6 sessions of grinding, I was not able to get the start button to work. I cleaned the machine as much as I could...


I am guessing the burrs do not turn. If so, tho rare, a foreign object might have entered burrs and jammed it. Happened to me once. Small stone with beans.

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

When grinding coffee beans the grinder is not dropping the beans into the grinder part. I have to stay and shake or bang the grinder on counter to get the beans to fall through.


you must screw off the burr holder plate screw (in center) you will order one special screw, drill shaped, when the burrs roll it will mix and take down the coffee beans. That is solution i applied to many grinders. PS: beware the direction of burrs must be coordinated with new screw.

Dgb-900 series. Keeps making a snapping sound rather than brewing coffee


used a pointed bottle brush to go up the coffee grind channel to the
burr grinder and kept turning it until I could feel the burr move. A large
clump of compressed coffee beans came out. Have had no problem
since.

Cuisinart burr grind and brew coffee maker


The hopper between the burr grinder and where coffee chutes into the filter is jammed with coffee powder...

First, take out the filter holder and carafe, and place a freash empty filter on the pot base to catch stuff.

Next, take out the beans holder and look for the release lever in the lower left section. Sliding it to the left slides open the door, where you'll probably find loads of powder. You can poke your finger through to get the majority, then use the cleaning brush to get it really clean.

Thanks what fixed mine! (I notice I have to do this about once every few months.)
