:yikes: That would be DefCon 1 emergency in my book.

We keep a small bag of "pre-ground" coffee in the freezer for just such emergencies.   We use it up and replace periodically just to ensure it doesn't degrade too badly in the freezer - keeps if fairly well though...

After completely disassembling my coffee grinder here's what I found inside the top section of the grinder (where the controls live).


That is nearly 2 ounces (yes, I weighed it) of old coffee that somehow got inside of the unit's case and fouled up the open 'rheostat' that is used to set the grind time.

Talk about a poor design! I received this Cuisinart grinder as a gift about 3 years ago from my son. Maybe I should contact Cuisinart and tell them of this poor design?

Nope, do you think that might be the problem?

On the bottom of the grinder it says, 'Fabrique En China'

Do I need to speak French or Chinese?

Maybe French with a Chinese accent or Chinese with a French accent?

I've had more than a few Cuisanarts that have been less than stellar...all of them made in China, however I'm sure that they were designed by some idiots over here.

Oh yes! I fixed the Cuisinart and it's working fine now. I bought a new grinder though and the Cuisinart is now the back-up, I ain't gonna go through that again!

Getting old and questioning your own memory really annoys me. Did the name of the thread change? Or am I just getting old?
