Check all connections and plug then after that it is a short behind the switch and will need to be sent back to the manufacturer.

Most plastic products contain enough carbon black to neutralise this problem. Obviously not with yours.

Try a camera accessory cleaning cloth - specifically anti-static.

Cleaning less often will also help, and maybe a quick brush out would result in less mess.

Natural fibres like cotton cloths or bristle brushes will also help.

Coffee naturally has oils that, if left on, will eliminate this problem anyway.

There is LIKELY a safety interlock switch for the lid to prevent operation if the lid is not down tight. Suspect the problem is with the switch or an latch that holds the lid.

Mine had a piece of the top/bean lid broken off and lodged in the groove preventing the lid from going down far enough to release the safety switch which is on the right (as you look at the front) in the bottom of the groove. Note that there is another safety switch in the body of the grinder above where the ground coffee comes out that must be working as well.

The Krups Burr Grinder GVX2 featured in the picture is not a coffee maker, per se, it only grind coffee beans to use in other coffee makers. It is a lousy machine, and I would recommend returning it or not buying it.
DO NOT PUT WATER INTO THIS MACHINE. It will cause electric shock.

Sound like it's choked up with grounds and oil. Burrs may also be blunt. U need to dismantle and clean/ check burrs, passages and body. If you can see "flats" on the burrs or they feel not sharp when you check with finger, they should be replaced.

Hi,

The GVX2 has two micro switches. one on the top hopper (in the groove on right hand side) and the other in the space the coffee holder (collector) fits into.

The coffee collector micro switch is activated by the lid of the collector.

You have to listen for a small "click" as you place the hopper on and again as you insert the coffee collector.

First, unlock and unscrew the upper burr carrier. Clean and check the upper burr by gently running your finger over the teeth in the cutting direction. It shoild feel moderately sharp. If it feels very blunt, look at the teeth under a good light. If you see a substantial "flat spot" at the top of the teeth, probably the burr set will need replacement.
For the bottom burr, clean carefully its teeth, and the entire area in which it is housed. Include the outlet orofice as well. You may find a lot of oily deposits within here, so just clean them off as best as possible.
When all is clean, insert the top burr holder back in place. Screw it down until both burrs touch, then back it off (say) 1/4 turn, and lock.
Put some beans in the top, and switch on. Adjust the top burr until the desired grind is obtained.
The ground coffee should feel like a coarse sand when close to the desired grind size.

Google (krups)(203)(manual) without parens. You may have to refine your search to get the correct model.

You can only get that wheel as part of the grinder, it is not possible to remove the burr to replace the plastic part. It's factory fit during manufacture. There are 2 reasons I'm aware of to cause that, rarely it can be a stone in the beans but more likely you have an internal leak causing the grounds to bind up together from the steamy environment within the housings. Also if the relief valve in the distributor is sticking it can cause the chamber to stay very wet.

I have a dolce gusto and i am unable to remove the coffee capsule. It seems stuck, as does the lever that punctures the capsule. If the valve lever is moved right or left nothing comes out. Please can you help?
