This grinder is really pretty crappy, I have the same one. If you want anything less coarse, you will have to grind it multiple times. My Grandmother tried using this and it ended up spitting out a few half and whole beans even after grinding. The best you would end up getting would be a drip coffee grind. Check this out, it might help understand the problem: http://www.epinions.com/content_143707967108

How to program Cuisinart to grind or brew?


The procedure is as follows:--For most Grind and Brew's, you can press the PROG button or turn the dial to PROG, then press the HRS button to change the hour and minute to change the time. The led will display PM if it is set for PM, but will not display AM if it is set for AM. After you have finished programming, press the PROG button. Now activate the AUTO-ON button or slide the dial to the Auto-On position. This will help.Good luck.

Coffee grinder only grinds to course no matter where grind adjuster is set


From what I've read about this grinder, you should be happy that it worked well as long as it did.

I say chuck it & buy a new one!!

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC suddenly decided not to burr/grind coffee. It doesn't turn on. Electrical recepticle is hot and the device is plugged in. I've cleaned all of the connections/buttons/grooves so...


Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

Burrs spin but no grinding


Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.

With the dial turned to "Turkish" I still get a very course grind. How to adjust/fix?


On the adjusting knob there are 2 set screws (outside of the center) and an adjustment screw (the one in the middle). First make sure the LARGE screws on the side of the SELECTOR plate are tight. Start with the selector on Turkish, with the grinder OFF loosen the set screws about one full turn each. Leaving the selector on Turkish turn the grinder on and gradually VERY SLOWLY turn the center screw clockwise. Eventually you will hear the burrs inside touching. After they touch back of the center screw about 1/8 of a turn. Tighten the SET SCREWS tight as they may allow the grinder to go out of adjustment if not tight. Test the grind with very little coffee and throw those grounds out. Then grind and brew! If these grinders are adjusted too fine you may have problems with the grinds not falling and may back up.

Rocky grind settings


The little button on the top locks the grind to the set position. If it is falling down and not engaging the collar, the collar will turn and rest the grind to a very fine setting. If this is happening, you have to clear the hole that it sits in. Easier said than done, but not too difficult.
First, remove the bean hopper. Then carefully unscrew the collar all the way out. You will see the grinding burrs here. This is where you can change them if needed - not our problem now. Lift out the button out, and there should be a spring too. The hole frequently gets packed with coffee grounds. You can use a drill bit - by hand - or a philips screwdriver (takes longer) to take the grounds out of the hole. Replace spring and button, working it up and down to ensure proper movement. Clean the threads of the collar with a brush and carefully screw back together. This step is important! You could ruin the grinder if the collar is not straight!
When you get it screwed in most of the way, start the grinder. Slowly screw it in until you hear a "zing" when the burrs touch. Stop and back off another 1/4 turn. This should be the espresso setting and the button should come up and lock the collar in place.

Good luck!

Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to turn...you'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.
