1) Rinse area with vinegar/water on a cloth to break up oils
2) Fill grind chamber with ice covered in a small plastic bag - try removing again after 10 mins

Fairly common with the DGB600's IMO

Krups gx6000 grinder advertises removable burr grinders and there are no instructions, but is that the best way to clean them?


Hi,
the Krups instruction manual is useless in this matter but if you do have some mechanical insight this is not very hard. You will need some tools, e.g. an Allen wrench to remove the housing lid.
Anyway, you should not have to clean the grinders very often, perhaps once a year is enough. It depends on the quality of the coffee beans you use; the more 'oily' beans the more frequent cleaning is required.
I would not use water to clean it, rather a small stiff brush (e.g. an old tooth brush), but if that is not enough, water will have to be used.
If so, be sure to assemble the grinder only after the burr is completely dry.
Check the link to Home Barista where a very similar grinder is shown, that should give you an idea about what to expect during the cleaning process.
Good luck;

Remove the grinder tray, remove the grinder top and clean out the burrs.
lift the command unit. close and remove the bean hopper. Press in the two thumb tabs either side of the grinder tray and pull the tray forward. If it's not been removed for a while it could be very tight. Push the tray in first then pull.
with the grinder tray removed, take out the white plastic ring that the hopper sits on. Unscrew the two Philips head screws in the top section of the grinder. Remove the screws and rotate the top section anti clockwise whilst lifting off. You should now have access the the grinder burrs. Carefully clean every part of the teeth burrs with a stiff brush or small screwdriver.
turn the tray over and examine the bottom end of the shaft which passes through the grinder. The centre is usually rubber and this can become detached with age. If the rubber is shot you will need to replace the pulley shaft. Check to the tension of the belt From the motor to the pulley shaft
Once everything is clean and clear, reverse the process to reassemble the machine.
you should find it now grinds ok

I was trying to clean my coffee grinder and when I took the bottom off a clear plastic came out and I can't get it back in.


see the steps:God bless you
  • Unplug the coffee grinder and wipe out as much residue as possible with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 2 Plug in the grinder. Add a little dry, uncooked rice to the grinder and turn on the grinder. Grind the rice until the grinder no longer has an odor or until the rice is finely ground. Repeat this step if necessary.
  • 3 Unplug the grinder and remove the ground rice completely. Wipe again with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 4 Hand wash any removable lid to the coffee grinder with dishwashing liquid. Allow to air dry.
  • 5 Clean the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth or paper towel

    How do I clean the inside of the coffee grinder kitchenaid model A-9


    Instructions Things you need
    • Soapy water
    • Screwdriver
    • Burr cleaning brush
    • Damp cloth

    1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
    This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.

    2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.

    3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.

    4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.

    5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.

    6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.

    7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.

    8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.

    9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.

    10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.

    11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.

    12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.

    Incanto sirius states grinder blocked. Took apart


    I own a Saeco Incanto Deluxe. It employs the ceramic grinder that has worked flawlessly for 3-4 years. One day it stopped and "Grinder Blocked" appeared. I removed the entire grinder unit, cleaned it thoroughly and calibrated the grinder. This did not fix the problem. After many similar attempts, I found the entire grinder assembly (motor, grinder etc.) online for $149.00. Install of the new assembly took me five minutes and it works perfectly. Please note that the ceramic grinding blades (there are two round ones that must be aligned corrrectly) cost $40 a piece (same site where I found the entire assembly for $149). My suggestion--save yourself the agony and replace the assembly if cleaning and calibration fails.

    How do i clean my cuisinart grind and brew coffee maker? i can't find my instruction booklet and it needs to be cleaned. thanks!


    From the manual I found online here.
    CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE COMPLETELY CLEAN AND DRY ALL PARTS AFTER EVERY USE. Always turn coffeemaker OFF and remove the plug from the electrical outlet before cleaning. Open the reservoir lid*. Remove the grinder basket lid by using the recessed area on each side of the lid. Then remove Grinder Basket. Open Filter Basket Door. Remove Filter Basket Cover, Filter Basket and Filter Basket holder. The grinder basket, grinder basket lid, filter basket and filter basket cover can be washed in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or cleaned in the upper rack of the dishwasher. Dry all parts after every use. Do not put any water in the unit once the grinder basket has been removed. Wipe the area under the grinder basket with a damp cloth. If water gets into the grinder motor, the motor may become damaged and may malfunction.
    DECALCIFICATION Decalcification refers to removing the calcium deposits which form over time on the metal parts of the coffeemaker. For best performance from your coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit from time to time. The frequency depends upon the hardness of your tap water and how often you use the coffeemaker. To clean, fill the water reservoir to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water. Turn the coffeemaker on by pressing the ON button. One cycle should be sufficient to adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is completed and the five beeps sound, turn coffeemaker off. Repeat operation, this time using fresh cold water.

    DGB 500 Grinder


    You may try opening the front cover first and removing the filter then after opening the top lid, remove the clear grinder cover and lift the grinder from the rear. After you get it out be sure to clean the motor drive shaft and the bottom of the grinder. then use a trace of vegetable oil to lubricate the motor shaft where is attaches to the grinder.

    We are on our second coffee maker and it makes great coffee.
