Question about Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker
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?
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
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.
