    OK here is the scoop. You open the unit from the TOP, not the obvious-looking plastic cover on the bottom. There are 3 Phillips-head screws hidden underneath plastic caps located in wells around the inside perimeter of the bowl seen when you take the grinding chamber off. To get those caps out, you need to whack them sideways with hammer and screwdriver from the side closest to the center, forcing them outward and up. Obviously the manufacturer never intended them to be removed.

    Once the screws are removed, you can lower the base off the unit far enough to see a hex nut holding the circuit board in place (behind the front control panel). Remove this nut with needlenose or a socket wrench. On the underside of this circuit board is the offending fuse. I have yet to be certain which device it is, but I believe it's a copper-colored cylinder 4mm long and labeled Z01.

    Since this product is $25 at Target, it's unlikely you'll want to bother repairing it, but I was offended that it blew out after only about 20 uses. Save your money for some other manufacturer's product, this is total junk.

SOURCE: salton perfect touch electric grinder - thermal switch/fuse

This is most likely a thermo overload, and can be replaced, make sure that there is no short circut before replacing it, as it will only blow again if there is a short. This part can be purchased at any Radio Shack store.

Typically you load in the beans, replace the cover and then either press down on the entire cover or the black knob on the front of the cover. I would hold the lid down with your other hand just to be safe. Grind for about 4-6 seconds depending on how strong you like your coffee (the longer you grind the finer the coffee will be...this means STRONGER)

SOURCE: Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr - Thermal Fuse

My grinder stopped suddenly. Open the cover(s) by prying at the cracks with a butter knife or flat head screw driver.
The thermal fuse was good in my case, as were the interlock switches.
The circuit board was burnt around a large power resistor but I could figure out which component was bad. I simply cut out the timer control completely. One of the black motor wires now connects to the red wire from the bottom interlock switch and the other black wire connects to the blue AC power wire. I may put in a button switch but it works great by using the lid interlock as an on/off switch.

Unfortunately this probably means that the AC Motor within the device has shorted out. These motors will still allow the blade/shaft to move even if a fault has occurred. It is unlikely, but possible that this particular model is built in such a way that a replaceable fuse is accessible to the operator. More then likely however the motor will have 'burnt' out and will no longer function no matter what you try.
Try to check the power cord for nicks and check that the outlet functions correctly. Lastly check that the power switch is properly operational. If all of this seems in working order then you are stuck with a non-functional device.

Sunbeam mr coffee bmx5 coffee burr grinder ... not working...no electricity


Check if the container for the ground coffee is properly placed. There should be a safety switch that is turned off when you put the container in place.
If that is not the case the thermal fuse for the motor might have blown.

Ids77 electric coffee grinder I want replace fuse how can I open this prodact please.


see this causes and proceed:God bless you
If the grinder does not run when turned on, make sure power is on to the outlet, then check the electrical cord.
If the grinder runs intermittently or doesn't stop, the switch may be clogged or damaged. Unplug the grinder and brush any grounds from the switch with a fine brush. Depress the switch several times with a toothpick. If the problem persists, disassemble the grinder to clean it and inspect the switch for breaks that you can fix.
If the grinder does not run, the motor shaft may be frozen. Disassemble the grinder, clean the shaft and lubricate each bearing point with one or two drops of lightweight machine oil. Rotate the shaft to evenly distribute the oil.
coffeegrinder1_1.jpgMost coffee grinders are accessed by removing fasteners on the base of the device.If the grinder still does not operate, the thermal limiter may be burned out. If you can't readily find a replacement thermal limiter, it may be more cost effective to replace the grinder.
If the grinder vibrates, the blade may be bent. Inspect the blade and replace if it is damaged or dull. Another cause of vibration could be a worn motor bearing. Unplug the grinder and remove the access plate. The bearing is bad if the motor shaft moves when pushed back and forth; replace the grinder.

My Cuisinart DCG-12BC coffee grinder, the bowl is stuck on the motor base. It works and turns, but it will not come apart to be able to clean it. Please advise.


.... mine stuck after "first" use ... solution ... took it back to the store, got a refund, bought a Mr. Coffee Model IDS77 which was $11. cheaper, has automatic grind settings and a superior bowl arrangement... Then I put Cuisinart on my list of DO NOT BUY ... anything can have problems, but something obviously this chronic should be handled better by the manufacturer ... it should have been taken off the market and fixed ...

Mr. Coffee FTX45, worked yesterday. The display and lights work. The water is not heating, so no coffee. What needs repair?


If you have an ohmmeter take the bottom of the unit off and check the thermal fuse for continuity that is the most common failure. It's located inside an insulated tube and clamped to the side of the heating element. If that is ok another clamp secures the thermostatic switch usually a porcelain body. When cold it should be closed or show zero resistance. The thermal fuses are available at Radio Shack but replacing it requires it's leads to be welded because solder melts at 350 deg F.
I have replaced them successfully by using crimp connectors available in the electrical dept. of your nearest auto supply. Hope that helps.

Mr coffee IDS55-4 suddenly stopped working. The blade is intact. What could br the problem and what can I do?


Circuit protection in this grinder is done with a resettable fuse. Mine failed the first time I used it. Fortunately, it's relatively easy to replace.

  1. Remove the plastic plate covering the bottom of the grinder. It is held in place by three screws.
  2. Remove the power cord strain relief inside the grinder. It is held in place with two screws.
  3. Remove the motor. It will only come about half way out of the enclosure.
  4. My fuse was fastened to the motor with a copper tie, which needed to be loosened to access the fuse.
  5. Remove the fuse by un-soldering one end from the motor and clipping the wire that it is crimped to on the other side. See attached photo of the fuse after it was removed.
  6. Replace with a 15A fuse or just solder the end of the black wire directly on to the motor. If you don't replace the fuse, you should be careful not to run the grinder for prolonged periods of time because your may destroy the motor.
