I have a Cuisinart Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Coffeemaker, DGB-700 Series and have owned it for 13 months. On Nov 13,2015 I started a pot of coffee. During the brewing process, I heard it making a noise that I had never heard before. I walked into the kitchen to find smoke coming from the unit and the heating plate glowing a bright red, like you would see on an electric stove. I unplugged it and took it outside as it was filling the kitchen with smoke and the strong smell of it burning.
