How to Troubleshoot a Cuisinart Grind & Brew

The Grind & Brew coffeemaker manufactured by Cuisinart has a three-year warranty if it is used in a residential setting. During the warranty period, Cuisinart will repair or replace a defective coffeemaker. The owner must pay the cost of shipping the product to Cuisinart for repair or replacement. Cuisinart recommends troubleshooting the coffeemaker to resolve common issues before shipping it for warranty service.
