    the solution offered is basic. The machine has been properly cleaned each time used. Removal of lift out burr etc.

    It is only 4 months old - yet cuisinart says it is out of warranty as I am Mexico

    As I said before I CLEAN the machine WELL every time I used it. And I mean well. It does not grind below #10. The burr grinders are not in the least worn.

  • alandavis1 Oct 14, 2010

    Thanks, but you did not read my comments. That the unit is new (3 months) grinders look NEW and not worn in the least.

  • alandavis1 Oct 14, 2010

    Unit is only 3 -4 months old. Grinders appears to look like new. It did grind very well, then one day it stopped grinding on anything less than #10 - drip. I need it for espresso.
    The machine was cleaned after every use - well cleaned

Part of the resistor pack, which regulates speed has burnt out or the switch is malfunctioning. It needs repair or replacement.

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

I'm guessing the problem is that the grinders blades, or the parts that do the grinding have become somewhat dull, (opposite from Sharp.) and no longer can get to the beans like it used to.

Cleaning the machine properly might improve its performance.


CLEANING/MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Be sure plug has been removed from outlet.

2. Beans can be removed from the hopper by lifting off the lid and pouring excess beans out. Hold down the Manual button to cleanout any remaining beans.

3. The bean hopper, bean hopper lid, grind chamber, and grind chamber lid can be washed by hand with hot, soapy water or placed in the top shelf of a dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.

a. Remove the bean hopper by rotating counter-clockwise bringing the selector past grind setting 18, align the arrows and lift up. Make sure the hopper is empty.

b. Remove grind chamber by pulling toward you.


4. Remove the burr grinder, once the bean hopper has been removed, by grasping the metal handle and lifting up. Use the brush to remove grinds or wash by hand. Replace the burr grinder onto the unit and rotate until the piece is fully inserted. Push handle down and replace hopper.

NOTE: The hopper will not attach to the unit if the grinder has not been fully inserted.

5. Wipe body of grinder with a damp cloth.

6. Any other servicing or maintenance should be performed by an authorized service representative.

WARNING: NEvER ImmERSE UNIT IN WATER

This coffee maker (10 c maker with grinder) beeps it's done every few minutes with water left. we have to brew about 5 times for a full pot, what gives?


Presume this is the Grind & Brew Thermal™ 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Model # DGB-600BCC

An instruction booklet is available here: http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/DGB-600BCC_en.pdf

Review the sections beginning on page 11 of the pdf on Turning Off the Grind Function (if not using the grind feature) and Making Coffee.

Make sure you are turning off the grind function if using preground coffee and that the reservoir lid is securely closed.

Check the Cups Setting button; is sounds like the 1-4 feature may be turned on.

Hello.

Cuisinart grind and brew--water does not come down


If the water is not coming out of the filter basket, and is instead leaking over the edges, then replace the brew basket.

If there is no water at all, call Cuisinart - those coffee makers have a 3-year warranty.

Here is a link for the PDF version of the Instruction Booklet for the DGB-600BCC (from the name you provided I’m assuming this is the correct product).
