Unplug first. Unscrew the top. You need a long thin screw driver Phillips head is the best. Pock around the exit and entrance where the coffee beans are ground. Remember, the better the coffee and you will get more clumping of the beans. I works great. It is pain. The Chicago Clout man exits.

Remove the bean holder. Open the chute in front of the grinder. Use the brush that came with the coffee maker to clean out the chute. There is a lever on the left side of the chute. Open it to clean out the old grounds. I clean mine every 3-4 days and it works great.

    The chute door does stick, I usually have to flip it several times to make sure it is working after I cleans the chute. Also you might try using a q-tip to clean top and bottom. I clean the under side of the chute door every time I make coffee. It gets a build up and that can make it stick.

I do that. But the ground coffee cant get through to the basket because the chute 'door' wont open. I open the chute, clean it out but the same thing happens

Grinder will not start


Make sure that the coffee ground container is fully inserted. You may need to make sure there are no grounds are keeping it from seating properly. Use something soft such as a toothpick to clean it thoroughly...Good Luck.

I have the CCM-16A grinder that gets clogged while grinding. I have to shake it so the beans keep going thru to grind. How can I clean it?


Chris, unplug the machine. The the coffee receptacle out and clean out the discharge opening with a small brush. The coffee sticks to this opening and causes the machine to stop. Its a safety feature to stop the machine when the receptacle is full. Good luck.

My cuisinart burr coffee grinder will not turn on


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!

Coffee grinder on brew and grind won't work


Make sure the slot between the grind basket and filter basket is clean and free of grounds - then inspect the area near the grinder motor - use the brush that came supplied with the Cuisinart to clean that area out. Once thoroughly cleaned, try one more time to Grind. Let me know if it works.

Thermal carafe clogged


I was once able to disassemble the top of the carafe and clean it thoroughly. I've had these clogging problems before, and it has not been the filter chamber that is the problem, but the vent in the carafe being clogged. When the air from the inside of the carafe can't be displaced faster than the coffee is draining in, the coffee stops draining into the carafe, fills the top, and spills over the side.

Will probably end up buying a replacement lid, as I can't figure out how to open the top without destroying it. I must have gotten lucky the time I was able to take it apart.

Use the bursh that came supplied with the coffeemaker to clean around the exterior of the motor area, underneath the grind basket. Make sure the chute is clean as well.

CCM-16 Series Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill (Coffee Grinder)


Actually, I've never had any problems with my grinder. Got it for a very low price at Costco about 2 years ago. The switch has never failed to function and I've often slid the switch over to the left to stop the grinding before the designated time (I was in a hurry for my coffee) , but this hasn't seemed to negatively effect the function of the switch. It just keeps working.
