Question about Cuisinart DGB-600BC 10-Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Power surge fried our unit

We lost electrical service to our whole house and the service line (from the pole) had to be replaced. There was apparently a power surge from which our DGB-600BC was not protected. When we plug it in we get nothing--no clock, no lights, and worst of all no coffee! What to do?

    The coffee pot has no power. I came home after a storm, the pot was off. I checked breakers and the outlet and everything is fine. I tried plugging it into a different outlet that I knew was working, still no power. The coffee maker is only 1 1/2 yrs old. Any suggestions?

    My situation is exactly as described, except mine is only two months old. Will try the warrantee route, and watch for other comments or fixes here.

Contact cuisinart and see if the will replace it under warrenty. This happened to mine, but they would not replace mine because it was a refurbished model. I am going to rip mine apart to see if I can fix it this weekend.

Won't turn on. Power went out to the whole house when roof was being replaced. Tell me where reset button is


What won't turn on? If the entire house lost electricity, that means that either the main electric line was severed or the main breaker in your panel was tripped. I suspect the latter. Go to your main electrical panel, open the door and look at the top of the panel. There should be one large breaker marked either 100 125 150 or 200 A. This is your main breaker. Turn it off and turn it on.
If you don't know where your electrical panel is, go outside and look to see where the electric wire comes from the pole to your house. There will be a meter pan here with a glass housing on it. Your panel is almost always directly opposite of that meter inside your house so figure out what room that aligns with and that's where your panel is. I hope this helps.

A power surge fried my Epson Home Lite projector HDMI port......how much does it cost to repair or is it pretty easy to buy the part & fix yourself?


I have lost many things to power surges; sometimes it's only the electric cord (can be replaced), sometimes it's the battery (for lap tops), sometimes it's the electrical socket itself (try plugging into a different one). Worst case scenario the whole thing is fried (not all power surges are equal) now that I have everything plugged into surge protectors I only see them fry (beats losing another computer) try plugging it in without the surge protector or extension cord (if you were using one).

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Came home from work to find that my circut breaker was tripped for my furnace...what and why caused this...i flipped the breaker back on and smelled like it fried the control board....why did it do this


Hi,
The most likely cause was a power surge. The surge from the power line into your house wil fry the board and trip the breaker at the same time. Then when you turn the breaker back on it will continue to fry the board....
Whole house surge protection can help to stop some of the surges, but may not toally protect you from them. Some are too large to be completely stopped with normal surge protection devices.
There are many deivices out that will provide surge protection and some like these that will provide surge protection and can help to save you money.
