Cuisinart DGB-300 buttons not working

Went to make coffee and the only buttons are the temp adjust and the self-clean. The grind off, the on/off, the program and the 1-4 cups button don't work. Planning on taking it apart and looking at the circuits, but I think after all of the years of use and abuse it has decided it is done. If anyone has had a similar problem and been able to fix it please let me know

Don't take it apart - just unplug it for longer than 20 minutes - it should cause the self-clean light to shut off.

We have a Cuisinart DGB-900 BC Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker. Our Problem is that the bean grinder has stopped working. We purchased the coffee maker on 2/25/10. Prior to this happening, we were...


try cleaning the grind chute again. if problem persists:
this is a cronic problem with the DGB900BC even after cleaning. the problem is the gate or trap to the grounds needs to open/remain open during grinding or all backs up and jams. my unit opens the door (correctly) during the rotation but closes just before grinding (over-rotation?). Cuisinart is not aware of this problem (800-726-0190). please call them; i just have.

How do I adjust the volume for each cup of coffee


Hi
Push and hold the coffee button you want to program. Do not release this button. It will grind, click 3 times, the the brew unit will cycle up and start to dispense water. When you get the amount of coffee you want for this button, then release the button and its programed. If the button is held more than 3 seconds, it will reset to zero water. Reprogram again.

Coffee is too weak


Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

My palazzo only works when i press the button for expresso?it doesnt work when i push the button for the bigger cup ?


HI
If it works for espresso, but it doesn't work for the large cup, try holding the large cup button down and keep it down. Let it go through the grind, the clicking, and if it starts to dispense coffee , still don't release it until you have the desired amount in your cup. Then release it.
If one of the coffee buttons is held down for 3 seconds or more and then released, the water program goes back to zero. No water. You have to reprogram the button like we did above.

Just bought a cuisinart grind & brew dgb-550 and can't get the program setting to work. Tried putting in a time and leaving it and tried pushing the program button after entering the time.


Push the program button one more time - the first push allows you to set the time, the second push stores the time you have just entered, and then you have to press it one more time to make the light next to the program button light up tell it to brew at the set time.

My grind and brew turns itself off in the middle of brew cycle


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir as a guide rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. As such, a 12-cup machine actually produces closer to 9 standard 8 oz cups. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. It is extremely important to clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

How to clean the coffee maker & set warmer


In order:
1 and 2) Clean the coffeemaker by puring in 1/3 caraffe vinegar, and 2/3 caraffe water. Either use the self-clean light or brew it as if it were regular coffee - just press the on button and then press the self-clean button, and it will begin.
3)
The Automatic Shutoff Time can be programmed
anywhere from immediate shutoff
after completion of the brew cycle up to four
hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off,
two tones will sound. Four hours is the default
time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately
after brewing is complete. To check the
current setting, press the “On/Off” button and
the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the
“On/Off” button until the red “power” light
begins to flash. This signals that you have
entered the “Set Automatic Shutoff” mode.
Press the “Hours” and “Minutes” buttons
to scroll forward through the digits until
desired time appears. The first setting which
appears is preset at “4:00” and the next
display will be “0:00”, since four hours is the
maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing
and holding either button will allow you to
scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to
accelerate to the rate of about three digits per
second. As the desired time setting approaches,
release the button and then press repeatedly
to advance one digit at a time.
The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be
programmed either before or during coffee
brewing. You may also re-program the ASO
time when brewing has been completed. If you
do so, the Automatic Grind & Brew™ will automatically
account for any time that has already
elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set
the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have
already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut
off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes
minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes).

Good luck!
