SOURCE: Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr... Problem:

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.

Cannot get my krups burr grinder gvx 2 to turn on or do anything. there are no instructions in the box.


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.

regards

Fill out water


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.

  1. replacement of burrs after 500 kg grinded coffe
  2. if upper burr holder and the body of grinder does not hold stabile, teflon aplying does not help too much, it is only temporary solution. new upper bur holder would do better.
  3. before inserting upper burr holder you should check if lower burr is rotating syncronized, you should take a bit chalk and sof touch while burr rotates. after that you stop grinder and look do you have circle with same thiknes, that would give you idea where is the problem, if it is in lower burr.
