20 Most Recent Cuisinart Thermal DGB-600 Grinder Questions & Answers


This is a problem with your Cuisinart Grind & Brew Coffeemaker? This product uses roasted whole bean coffee. Why in the world would coffee beans have leaves attached? Makes no sense.

I suffered with a stuck grider unti for a long time and just solved the problem..... Remove the filter basket and through the front door look up twords the back left. You can see where the grinder unit sits. There is a slot area where you can stick a screw driver under the grinder unit and pry it up. Do this in a jiggling motion and make sure you are well under the grinding unit, doing so on the edge of the grinder unit underneath will not give you enough suface to work with, in fact you will just bend or crack the edge. Looking in from low on the front (kneeling on floor with unit on counter, worked for me) will let you locate where the screw driver or smal pry tool needs to go. Mine was stuck for a very long time and No amount of pulling or prying from the top would work, I made it pop out in a matter of seconds using this technique from the bottom! Good luck, I'm going to finish my cup of coffee now! :-) Steve
a little cooking oil on the shaft before you insert the grinder will help, spray on pam works well and is easy to do...

I was once able to disassemble the top of the carafe and clean it thoroughly. I've had these clogging problems before, and it has not been the filter chamber that is the problem, but the vent in the carafe being clogged. When the air from the inside of the carafe can't be displaced faster than the coffee is draining in, the coffee stops draining into the carafe, fills the top, and spills over the side.

Will probably end up buying a replacement lid, as I can't figure out how to open the top without destroying it. I must have gotten lucky the time I was able to take it apart.

Cuisinart CS says to pour hot water around the outside of the grinder, that didn't help me at all. I finally used 1 foot of cord (heavy string) and made a loop, putting one end around the base of the grinder blade and then hooked the claw of a hammer in the other. Then yank up on the hammer.

overflow problem possible causes: 1) water is over the "10" marker, 2) no filter in basket 3) too much (or too fine) of coffee in the basket -- does not drain. Also make sure the "spring" on the bottom of the basket is not stuck (the one that lets you remove coffee carafe without dripping coffee.

Bottom of shaft has a flat srewdriver slot. Insert screwdriver into shaft slot and turn blades counter clockwise to unscrew.
