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 Cuisinart CCM-16PC I just bought off of Ebay and is suppose to work great..........looks great but hit start and nothing. I cleaned it but nothing I want to know how to get to the motor. I'm...

Hey Guys, after reading several threads about this, I just about to throw in the towel and buy a new one (actually, I placed an order for one already). Last ditch effort, I took out the hopper and I noticed all those grounds at the bottom. While it did not look like it's plugged up completely, it sure surprised me that so many grounds were down there.

I drink cappuccino, and I set my grind settings to FINE. Over the probably 2 years I had this machine, I never cleaned it. I never took the hopper off and when it stopped working, I thought the electrical had burnt out.

When I took off the hopper, I cleaned the grinding mechanisms, and spin the grinder with what I used to clean (a butter knife, since I no longer have the spoon/brush anymore). I then plugged it back in, turned it out, and it's spinning like nothing had ever happened!

BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO ME AFTER I PLACED THE ORDER FOR A NEW ONE. Needless to say, I went back online and cancelled my order.

Hope this can help someone out if yours "stopped" working.

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.

Severe clogging

Try using long grain white rice works better than minute rise, if that does not help, then the burrs need to be replaced on grinder.

Rancilio grinder does not grind fine enough for espresso

After taking the top burr off several times and rescrewing it, I finally was able to exert enough force to get it to turn a couple of extra turns. Evidently there was some oil or coffee gunk (although I could see none) that snagged the bur. Now it appears to work as before.

This is a great, service by the way. Even the process of thinking through the problem so I could post it helped me solve it.
