The bean container/hopper on my Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder is stuck and can no longer be rotated in either direction or removed from the body. Can anyone help me unseat it?

Grinders that are used daily, especially those in coffee shops will eventually wear out. The fine settings for espresso (or even finer for Turkish grind) will wear out the plates even faster. I've seen burrs needing replacement in 3-6 months for coffee shops. Burrs set on this fine position that do not grind or stop usually means a worn burr or gummed up plate. (especially with oily beans). Either problem requires the removal of the burr set and complete disassembly of the grinder. It sounds like your '1st' problem was corrected by permanently 'affixing' the burrs to a set position and now not able to remove them without causing more damage. I did the same to an old grinder I got from the swap meet. But alas, the plastic collar cracked completely and can't be repaired. well got 1 year's worth of use and it was cheap.
** Suggest checking with your vendor or MFR for service and/or replacement.

My gaggia titanium dumps the brewed coffee into the dregdrawer, how do I fix that?

Water collection in dump box can be due to any of the following reasons:

1- The Plastic screw that fastens the upper filter screen in the brew group is not holding the 9 bar extraction pressure. The O-ring seal on the screw may have hardened. Replace the plastic screw. There are two different screws. Older Pre 2004 models have a screw with flexible locking pins. Here is the link to order:
The screw in newer models is shorter with a flat locking end. Here is the link:
2- The second reason can be less coffee which is not enough for good compacting. This leaves room for some coffee that did not squeeze out and drops in the dump box with watery used coffee puck.
3- The Conical burrs may not have been replace for several years. The steel conical burrs have a life of 2500 grinds. This machine may still have burrs that have done over 5000 grinds.
Blunted burrs need to be replaced. You can order the burrs and instructions for cleaning the grinder and replacing the burrs. Here is the link:

Please check the above and fix the cause.

Where can I get a thermal fuse harness for a Krups mk7000

If it is no longer available why not read the temperature rating on your dead fuse and replace the fuse only?

Coffee grinder only grinds to course no matter where grind adjuster is set

From what I've read about this grinder, you should be happy that it worked well as long as it did.

I say chuck it & buy a new one!!

My Solis Maestro takes a long time to grind and no longer grinds for espresso. How do you remove the burrs to clean them? Should they be replaces?

Yes the burrs will wear out. They can be replaced. To remove the outer burr. Twist the bean hopper counterclockwise until it stops. Lift the bean hopper out. There is a cream colored ring with 2 tabs that will lift out holding the outer burr. To get the inner cone burr out is a little more difficult. We use a vice grip and grab the burr, and lock the pliers to it. Then with a quick movement clockwise on the pliers, you loosen it. Then clockwise unscrew the burr. When you install the new burr, it truns on counter clockwise until it stops. Insert the new outer burr. Push down so the tabs will lock in. Install the bean hopper into the correct slots ( 1 large tab and 1 small tab). Twist clockwise to turn on and test. Remember it must be grinding to turn to a finer grind but can be turned to a coarser grind any time.

Burrs spin but no grinding

Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.

Not fine enough grind

This model grinder won't do espresso. There is a DIY mod available online that involves disassembling the machine, and recalibrating the burrs to produce a finer grind. I did it on mine, it was definitely better, but it's not going to get you to the coveted 30 second pull for your espresso. Search on Starbucks Barista Grinder Mod. It is a great grinder otherwise, very reliable.
