Question about Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker

6 Answers

Will not brew full pot

The machine will only brew about 2-3 cups at a time and takes 3 to 4 times to draw all the water from the maker. The 2-4 cup button is not on but we have tired it in every poistion. Same problem - brews about 2 to 3 cups from a fill of 10 cups. I have removed the bottom, disconnected hoses, made sure both hose paths were clear (blew compressed air through them, ran water through the resevoir with hose disconnected and it ran through just fine) and ran a rubber "snake" through the heating element's water path. The entire path was "free flowing" yet the problem remains? Cuisinart is supposed to be a quality product. I am having my doubts...

    My post was "The machine will only brew about 2-3 cups at a time and takes 3 to 4 times to draw all the water from the maker. The 2-4 cup button is not on but we have tired it in every poistion.

    I would hope to get a more definitive solution than "Regretfully, we have seen this problem quite a lot for this brand of coffee maker. I hope it is still under warranty. This product seems to suffer from trying to do too many things at once. It is supposed to brew a great cup of coffee. But often the full pot does not get brewed. The manufacturer should be addressing this issue. It is systemic."

    Is there someone that can help me diagnose and repair the problem?

I'll let you in on a little secret. Starbucks has a Very Helpful support line for coffee makers and is known to help consumers that may even own other brands since coffee makers are all basically built the same way. Give them a call at (800) 334-5553 and let me know how this works out

my best to you

    A clean coffee maker is essential to good coffee. Residue of
    stale coffee oils will interfere the brewing that caused 2-3 cups only produced.
    It is suggest regular cleaning of your coffee maker according to manufacturer
    recommendation.


    I took everything
    out, got a small piece of fine sandpaper, held the plunger in with a pencil,
    turned on the grinder and sanded the round top portion of the grind basket
    driver. It takes a few times to get a good snug fit that’s still easy to
    remove.


    The instruction manual that came with the pot will tell you
    to use one cup (measuring cup) of "white vinegar" and fill the rest
    of the reservoir with regular water. Turn it on and let it perk the mixture
    through the system. Then perk a couple of pots of plain water to flush out the
    rest of the vinegar.

    The books say to do this once a month to keep things clean and the coffee
    tasting great.


    A professional machine that is plumbed into a water supply
    must be thoroughly disassembled, and each part soaked in acid, and manually
    cleaned. Unless your water is exceptionally hard (you should have a water
    softener inline with the machine in hard water areas) this should only need to be
    done every 5 years or so. Heads and screens and filters should be soaked every
    day in a cleaning solution available from any professional machine supplier. A
    machine that is not plumbed should have a small amount of Puly brand cleaner
    added to its tank, and run through several cycles every 3 months. Puly is
    available thru machine suppliers, but there are also several other brands that
    do the same. Visit your local coffee machine shop for a good cleaner.


    Hope this may help;

Base from what you've said I think better for you to return this back since it never work fine , because you pay for it so that should work good...You can try checking first again the user manual for that and do the stpes there if its still didn't work have it replace.

Good luck.......

Clean the pot by brewing a full pot of undiluted vinegar, then rinsing it by brewing 2 full pots of water through it. Also, change the charcoal filter on a regular basis. We clean the pot this way every month and replace the filter every 2 months.

Coffee doesn't brew full pot


Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.

I had the exact same problem with my machine making 1 cup at a time.

Here is the solution: 

1. make solution of 1 part vinegar & 2 parts water.

5. make fresh solution and continue process
