Question about Cuisinart Grind and Brew 10 Cup Coffee Maker

Hot steam dampens coffee grinds in grinder unit

The grinder being combined to the brewer is a convenient feature, but one major issue is that the steam from the brewing enters the grinder unit and dampens the coffee grinds. As a result, 10% of the grinds never make it down into the basket below. AND I have a to clean the grinder unit EVERY time I use it making it a hassle.

Is there any way to fix this or is it just another defect with the product???

Coffee is getting stuck in the shoot between the grinder and basket so coffee is very weak


Try using a bottle brush and cleaning out the residue from coffee grinding. Coffee grinds build up because of the oils in the beans. I clean mine twice a week and it works great.

What would cause the machine to grind the beans but not produce any coffee despite the water tank being full?


Your grinder setting might be too fine. Only adjust while the grinder is grinding -- set to a coarser grind. Have you tried the preground coffee dispenser? Again, use coarser ground coffee in case the sieve is getting clogged.

Coffee beans are not going into grinder.


Your grinder is probably blocked.
It may happen if your coffee is greasy or oily.

Try to empty the coffee bin and using your vacuum cleaner, removed has much as possible the grounded coffee around the grinder.

Also, from the inside, look where the coffee grind should drop from the grinder to the brewer unit and removed any grind that could block and prevent coffee to drop.

Can you grind hazelnuts with the coffee in our 3000 magnifica


I would not do this as hazelnuts are oily and will probably gum up the grinder.
What you could do is but a few ground hazelnuts in the pre-gound chute at same time coffee beans are grinding. These will go into brewer unit at same time as coffee.

Coffee grinder will not turn on


I recently had this same issue - it turned out that the lock switch no longer engaged because the spring came out of alignment after the unit was dropped. Chances are you have a similar issue. You can test this by using a small screwdriver to press down on the safely latch and then pressing the ON/OFF (careful of the blades!!). then you can easily fix it.

No water dispenses when making coffee, the hot water feature works fine. I have descaled twice


Descaling or boiler problem doesn't seem to be your issue as your single boiler is both used to make hot water and coffee. As the hot water is working fine we should concentrate on the brewer unit blockage ( give it a good clean and remove Brewer screen or screens and un block dirty clogged holes ). Then if problem still exists make sure you are not grinding your coffee too thin ( will cause blockage and machine lockup ) if this is the case. I have also come across customers who for some strange reason turned off their machines before it could finish the coffee dumping cycle and leaving it for a while ( left over coffee goes hard and cloggs ). Hope this helps.

Cuisinart DGB-700BC grinds but no grounds in the basket.


Hi there, you have some kind of blockage, If the beans are going down, you need to remove the brewer unit and wash it, if the beans arent going down the exit of the grinder is blocked and needs to be removed, cleaned and replaced

Cuisinart grinder-brewer coffee maker


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.

Bean hopper is full, grinder is grinding...but NO COFFEE!


Sometimes the chamber between the grinder and brewer will clog up. Try: Open the grind all the way up to the highest number. Push the grind button and while grinding move the dose knob (the one with the + - sign toward minus. If it does not kick in and dose try it again. If it does take off then leave it on the high number for 3 coffees. Then while the grinder is turning move the two knobs back to whre they were. If this does not work you can reomve the brew unit and right above where it sits in the machine there is a trap door that you can open. Open it and shove someting like a straw up toward the grinder and you should get a bunch of grounds droppiing down. Then try the above procedure a couple more times. If this does not work you may need to google "Saeco repair" and send it to an authorized repair center.
