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.

My mr coffee Iced tea maker has been working great for a year. Tonight it tripped a ground fault breaker, and only started a tea cycle. I reset the breaker and the machine squirted once then started to...

we had one like this and we suspect a power surge damaged it. it worked fine one night, but we had a lightning storm that night and we think lightning hit out power pole and fried several of our appliances. the tea maker would come on but like you described it seems to forget what its doing. consider the possibility that a power surge got it (doesn't have to be lightning, several things can cause a surge)

The water inside the unit will have expanded probably damaging seals inside the pump as it did so. professional repair might be your only option.

I had a power surge through my house. Doesn't

Hi, I have seen this so many times, power surges, brown outs and so on.You're coffee maker could not handle the surge and you will need to replace it.I know this is a top of the line maker, so you may want to have it looked at. If you are inclined to do so, take a look yourself and maybe you can see what part is out such as the switch, you can bypass it with an insulated jumper wire. You can get one at Radio Shack for almost nothing. Just unplug it and get to the switch, clip the wire to one side and to the other side wire connector, and see if it comes on. If so, get a new switch. If not, the only thing left would be the water pump and heating element. Look them over for any signs of burning spots. If so, replace it. Let me know please, Sincerely,
PS I have seen them take out the T.V., microwave, refrigerator and more all in one home!

Gaggia Carezza not turning on

I just bought a broken Carezza for my office (and hacking)-- the owner said the power switch only worked when he held it down hard.

Taking it apart, the main power switch-- a DPDT automotive-style unit-- is broken on one pole-- the wire connectors are slightly melted and darkened, and the switch has melted, discolored plastic around the metal tabs.

A new switch should bring it back to life, and I'll install a removable power cord and 15A fuse for niceness/safety-- the switch is rated for 20A at 125VAC so shouldn't have fried.
