Question about Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder
Fairly new DGB-600 or DGB-500. Worked well for first couple of months. But now, regularly, the grinder is impossible to remove. The only one who can pull is out after we make a pot of coffee is my 6'4'' husband.
I make sure it is completely clean and dry before inserting it. I even have cleaned the entire seating area with cuetips, but no matter how pristine the set up is, once the coffee is brewed, the grinder is impossible to remove.
Is this a standard problem? Would a replacement grinder do the trick?
I took the top off the entire machine (it snaps on and off) and took a butter knife to get under the grinder from the back. Using a little leverage, it popped off. I put Vaseline petroleum jelly on the male and female parts before my next use and it STILL got stuck. So I turned the machine around to the back, took off the lid, and used the knife again. Oh well, at least I can get it out….

I had the same problem and used a little grease and it worked fine. Take out the bean cup and grease the male and female parts and it should work fine.
