Cuisinart DGB-300 buttons not working

Went to make coffee and the only buttons are the temp adjust and the self-clean. The grind off, the on/off, the program and the 1-4 cups button don't work. Planning on taking it apart and looking at the circuits, but I think after all of the years of use and abuse it has decided it is done. If anyone has had a similar problem and been able to fix it please let me know

Don't take it apart - just unplug it for longer than 20 minutes - it should cause the self-clean light to shut off.

Pasquini Livia 90 Auto Dose Panel


First, I'm not a Pasquini tech, but I have worked on several similar brands.
* Most Semi-automatic machines will usually have the program button on the same as the stop button. Some will program all the groups at once or can be individually set up for different pours (shots)
* Holding down the program or stop button for 5-10 seconds will activate the program mode. Note that if you don't press any dosing buttons after 5-10 seconds the program mode will revert to normal mode. Some may cancel out the previous dose set up.
* Before starting, determine what you want a shot to look like. 1 oz, 1.5 oz, 2 oz., etc.
* Set up your portafilter with ground coffee. DONOT change the grind size once your satisfied with the QUALITY of pour (don't confuse this with the amount of the dose. This is handled with the programing of dose water.) Water is absorbed by the grounds depending on the grind size and some times the amount. Pods are different from loose ground coffee too.
* Load up portafilter and place measuring cup(s) under spout(s).
* Press program button and hold for 5-10 seconds. The button will light and stay on (some blink).
* Press the dose button for the appropriate portafilter you have mounted. The pasquini requires you to press the stop/program button once you have achived the desired dose. Other brands require the dose button to be press and held down until the amount of dose water is reached. Letting go button logs the amount in but only after pressing the stop button does it set.
* For other brands, you may need to set up all buttons prior to pressing the program/stop button to confirm dosing of all buttons.
* Remember to keep reloading fresh coffee grounds in the portafilter for each adjustment. Used (wet) coffee will throw out the water dose calibration.

How do I adjust the volume for each cup of coffee


Hi
Push and hold the coffee button you want to program. Do not release this button. It will grind, click 3 times, the the brew unit will cycle up and start to dispense water. When you get the amount of coffee you want for this button, then release the button and its programed. If the button is held more than 3 seconds, it will reset to zero water. Reprogram again.

Coffee is too weak


Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

My palazzo only works when i press the button for expresso?it doesnt work when i push the button for the bigger cup ?


HI
If it works for espresso, but it doesn't work for the large cup, try holding the large cup button down and keep it down. Let it go through the grind, the clicking, and if it starts to dispense coffee , still don't release it until you have the desired amount in your cup. Then release it.
If one of the coffee buttons is held down for 3 seconds or more and then released, the water program goes back to zero. No water. You have to reprogram the button like we did above.

Just bought a cuisinart grind & brew dgb-550 and can't get the program setting to work. Tried putting in a time and leaving it and tried pushing the program button after entering the time.


Push the program button one more time - the first push allows you to set the time, the second push stores the time you have just entered, and then you have to press it one more time to make the light next to the program button light up tell it to brew at the set time.

My grind and brew turns itself off in the middle of brew cycle


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir as a guide rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. As such, a 12-cup machine actually produces closer to 9 standard 8 oz cups. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. It is extremely important to clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

I have a cuisinart Grind and Brew with a glass carafe - not pictured above. The self clean button keeps lighting up and I don't know how to run the clean cycle.


Fill the water reservoir with 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water - then press the self-clean button. If the water doesn't start going through after a minute or two, just turn the machine on like you were brewing coffee. After the vinegar/water soultion has gone through the machine, brew one cycle of plain water to flush out the vinegar. If the self-clean light stays on, just unplug the machine for longer than 20 minutes, and the light should not come back on when you replug the machine. Good luck!

Cuisinart grind/brew 10 cup coffeemaker


The part the manual doesn't mention is that, after you have set the program time, you have to press the program button one more time. THEN, set it to auto-on. Also, make sure that the clock is set for AM/PM as appropriate - it will display PM if it is set for PM, and will not give an indication either way if it is set for AM.

Voila!

Keeps flashing 12:00


I just kept plugging and unplugging the coffee pot. Eventually, the clock stopped blinking, the buttons worked, and all was well.

Coffee maker beeping


Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.
