Question about Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder

1 Answer

Grinder basket removal

The grinder basket is increasingly more difficult to get out for cleaning purposes. I now have to use 2 sets of pliers. It still grinds well and I love the coffeemaker. Would some WD40 underneath the grind basket work or would it also find its way into my coffee beans? What is the best solution? I don't need to replace the coffeemaker.

    Found this site with google of course. Have run into this same problem with our Cuisinart.DGB-600. It is a little over 1 year old. We have not used the grinder for around 6 months, but prior to that washed it out religously. So vinegar is the solution to this? How to apply the vinegar? Where to apply it? Need more details please!

Vinegar instead of WD40 - I am pretty sure a good portion of the DGB-600's have this problem, but that is hearsay.

Saeco Grind and Brew model IDR 008 TG first the grounds were backing up and door not opening to go into basket, cleaned the dispenser per directions.. now the beans do not even grind at all nothing is...


Your grinder needs cleaning- maybe oily beans got used and/or storing beans in refrig/freezer? Both are a problem for grinder. Also, grinder should not be set to "fine"- it will definitely cause clogging and the situation you point out. ----------- The powder from the coffee grounds seems to get caked in the grinder. The only way to get it out is to run hot water into the little opening where the grounds funnel into the filter basket. --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How do you change the blade? I bought a new one but can't get the old one off. Thanks


Krups is among one of the foremost names in coffeemakers, espresso machines, blenders and toaster ovens. Krups also makes coffee bean grinders, such as the Krups 203a. This portable, plug-in grinder has a removable lid and bean grinder chamber. The blade on the Krups bean grinder is fastened to the bottom of the grinder chamber. You may need to replace the blade on your Krups 203. The Krups 203 comes with a limited 1-year warranty, but the company recommends you send your grinder to the company to make repairs. Order replacement parts for your grinder by calling the Krups customer service department at 1-800-526-5377.
    • 1 Unplug your Krups grinder from the wall.
    • 2 Remove the grinder's lid, and use a cloth to wipe out the inside of the grinder chamber.
    • 3 Put your safety gloves on and then grasp the blade of the grinder with your channel locks.
    • 4 Use the pliers to turn the plastic fastening nut to the left as you continue to hold the blade with the channel locks. Once the plastic nut comes loose, twist it off by hand and remove it, along with the plastic washer beneath it and the old blade.
    • 5 Set the new blade in place, and replace the washer and nut. You will have to hold the new blade in place with the channel locks as you tighten the securing nut.
Things You'll Need
  • Cloth
  • Safety gloves
  • Channel locks
  • Pliers

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

While the coffee is brewing without using the grinder feature, coffee overflows onto the counter. About 1/2 of the coffee goes into the pot while the rest spills over. I have cleaned residue from the lid...


overflow problem possible causes: 1) water is over the "10" marker, 2) no filter in basket 3) too much (or too fine) of coffee in the basket -- does not drain. Also make sure the "spring" on the bottom of the basket is not stuck (the one that lets you remove coffee carafe without dripping coffee.

Continue to get beeping after taking out basket, emptying water, re-inserting basket and making certain lid is clicked shut. Thoughts?


All the parts have to be in place, including both the removable grinder unit and its clear cover, even if you're using pre-ground coffee.

It also requires that both the top lid and the front "door" (to the basket area) are clicked shut, and that the basket and its cover are both in place.

One thing to check carefully is the clear cover to the grinder unit. There's a rubber-like "nub" that seems to actually control the switch, which tells the machine that the grinder unit is properly installed. If that rubber-like nub is missing (and unfortunately it IS possible to remove it, particularly during cleaning) ... that could be causing your problem. If you see a hole in the top of that clear cover... you're missing that "nub".

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.

My grinder insert no longer pulls our for cleaning. Any ideas how to remove it? It did come out in the past and now appears to be stuck.


The only thing to try is to either place a bag of ice in the grinder and let it sit for an hour or so (the ice will be melted by then anyway), or stick the whole thing in the freezer/refrigerator. It may sound silly, but it works a lot of the time (the gasket at the bottom of the grinder basket has clamped down on the motor shaft and the cold releases it). If you can get it out, call customer service (800-726-0190) for a new grinder, and if it's under 3 yrs old it might be covered under their warranty (but you can still purchase one even if it's too old). Just DO NOT put that back in there until you get a new grinder basket or it may not come out the next time.

And if it just doesn't work, you can call customer service if it's within the 3 yr warranty period and they may replace the whole thing. If it's older, then unfortunately you'll have to buy a new one (unless you think you can live with it, of course, because that won't effect the brewing, but it does make cleaning it properly very hard). Good luck!

Coffee basket


Called Cuisinart - they said to remove the basket ( I unplugged and then used pliers to move the blade/shaft up and down until it wiggled loose ) ... use soap and water to remove coffee oil (the real problem) and then pour a little vegetable oil into the female end where the motor engages the grinder blade to lubricate.

Grinder sound like it is grinding to fine. Increase the grinder size. Remember to only change grinder setting when the grinder is spinning.

 

Hope this helps!
