The last time I had to do this I went to a 'mom & pop' hardware store with the old brushes and looked thru the bins until I found a match. Seems like it was pretty straitforward to replace them, just a few screws and clips. While you have it open, gently clean out the grooves on the rotor with a dental pick or toothpick (that's the dust from your worn out brushes). That will help it run longer and stronger.

Coffee is getting stuck in the shoot between the grinder and basket so coffee is very weak


Try using a bottle brush and cleaning out the residue from coffee grinding. Coffee grinds build up because of the oils in the beans. I clean mine twice a week and it works great.

How to fix a bodum bistro electric coffee grinder that doesn't grind well


This can be caused by several things;
If it used to be good but is now faulty it is most likely that it just needs cleaning. If you are using beans that are 'oily' they can clog the grinder, you should anyway disassemble it and clean every year. Do not use soap and water, just brush it with a stiff brush (e.g. the stiffest type of toothbrush) and a vacuum cleaner.
There is also a possibility that something has got into the grinder along with the coffee beans that has damaged the grinding wheels; in that case you need to replace the wheels.

Have a grinder and it is full of coffee and stuck. It seems the beans were more oily and now I am trying to figure out how to clean it out. Please help


  • Try to grind all the beans through.
  • Put some uncooked rice inside the hopper and grind it, it is very good at cleaning if you don't have Grindz. Get Grindz if you can to grind and clean the burrs.
  • Try to take the grinder apart and brush off and clean off the burrs by hand.

The grinder isn't working...the blade isn't spinning.


chances are your motor is burned out or the bearing has gone, it would be less hassle to replace the grinder than repair it. in any case blade coffee grinders are not the best thing to use, they create an inconsistent grind leading to a bad extraction, if youre grinding for anything upto a filter machine then a basic burr grinder will do, if its espresso then youll need a ceramic hand grinder like the porlex mini or be prepared to spend serious money on an electric burr grinder (mine, a mazzer super jolly was over £300)

As I can see, what happens is that some coffee grains stucks in the way from the upper pot to the grinding wheel. This is not something usual, but possible if coffee grains are too big and are placed across the entry of the mill. Try cleaning more deep with some old toothbrush. Look for a clean and even surface of the duct.
Other cause might be a loosen mill hub/grinding wheel off the motor shaft, which would require dissassemble of the appliance to be repaired.

The coffee comes out in little logs or clumps. The coffee is weak- no crema.


HI
There are 2 things that can cause this. Either the burrs are bad and need replacing or you grinder is out of adjustment and you need to turn to a finer grind. If you have taken it apart, you are not adjusted close enough so your burrs can't grind fine enough. Readjust the burrs closer together.

Coffee grinder on brew and grind won't work


Make sure the slot between the grind basket and filter basket is clean and free of grounds - then inspect the area near the grinder motor - use the brush that came supplied with the Cuisinart to clean that area out. Once thoroughly cleaned, try one more time to Grind. Let me know if it works.
