Question about Cuisinart DGB-600BC 10-Cup Coffee Maker
I've had the same problem and solved it by washing the lid with my WaterPik. I put warm water in the WaterPik, turn it up to the highest setting and blast away all the grime, coffee grounds, sediment, and calcification. I do this right after decalcifing the coffeemaker and anytime someone goofs and causes the pot to overflow from forgetting to empty old grounds, or old coffee, or from carelessly placing the carafe under the brew basket valve. If it overflows from any of these causes and gets grounds in the lid it will likely clog the lid and cause it to overflow later from the clogged lid. After decalcifying the coffeemaker, the lid tends to get clogged with the gunk that you just cleaned from the coffeemaker. Using a paper filter while decalcifying may help keep some of the sludge out of the lid. If you use the goldtone filter like I do, you will find the lid may occasionally clog from the fine sediment that gets through the permanant filter. Works great for me and keeps my Cuisinart dripping like it should.
If you don't own a WaterPik, they're not that expensive and both you and your dentist will be pleased with your next checkup. Wish I had bought one years earlier than I did.

Unfortunately the lid is one unit. What you can do is try decalcifying the lid by soaking it in a water/white vinegar solution. If that does not work you might have to purchase a new lid.

I use 2 tabs of denture cleaner(you know the ones for fake teeth) in water and soak it over night. Works great to get out the coffee stain inside the craft too.
