Question about Rancilio Rocky SD Grinder without Doser - ROCKYSD

1 Answer

Grinder setting for the Rocky SD In setting the spacing of the grinders:where are the "grinders" located? (I am assuming that they are under the plastic cover at the bottom of the bean container-right?). How do you see the grinders- unless that cover has to be unscrewed? Thanks for your help Richard

Your assumption is correct.
But you do not have to (and you can not) see the grinder wheels to adjust the grinder. The numbers on the bean container indicate the level. All you have to do is to push down the release lever (on the right side) and then turn the container -- towards right for finer grindings (lower number) or to left for coarser coffee. Around 12 is usually suitable for espresso machines.

My Rancilio Rocky Burr coffee grinder w/doser is not grinding the beans they simply remain in the hopper


It is most likely that something is blocking the pathway to the grinder. As the Rocky is a direct drive grinder there is no gear that could be broken.
Try to remove the beans from the hopper and inspect the pathway, move the beans that might be under the 'disk'. If that is not working you might have to open the grinder;
  • remove all coffee beans
  • unscrew the three screws in the bottom of the hopper
  • remove the hopper
Now you can see the grinder wheel and tell if it is turning normally.
This might be a good opportunity to give the grinder a thorough cleaning.
Do not soak it in water, just a stiff small brush (e.g. a toothbrush) is the best tool. And perhaps accompanied by a vacuum cleaner :)
If you have been using very 'oily' beans for a long time they might have clogged the grinding wheels.

Good luck,
Villi

The grinder stoped grinding coffee


many grinders have resetable termic fuse, some of them require manual reset, so you should search for termic fuse attached to body of motor(open the grinder from bottom) usualy they are round black termofuses with red reset button.
usualy this happenes when we have loud music and we dont hear that grinder is on and he works long time.

My Rocky is just out of the box yesterday and it seems to have jammed up. It still grinds, but I can't turn the top, at all. It is stuck, so I can't adjust the courseness. I can't see any obvious problem...


  1. stabilize the body of grinder
  2. provide block spin to be in release position
  3. get one 3 legged key for releasing oil filters
  4. put filter legs at upper holder of burrs
  5. start to release carefuly
be gentle at first, go forward and backwards to measure how much strength is required

I disassembled the grinding blades and put it back together but now I can not get a find grind


HI
When you reassemble the removable burr assembly, you first must make sure that there are no grinds left in the main body's threads. These grinds will prevent the burrs from going any farther down. The burrs must touch and then back off to zero the grinder. Don't ever leave them touching though.

Rancilio rocky grinder setting


to get starting point you adjust burrs to touch each other. when they touch each other you have finest grinding, after you hear metal voice you turn back 3 dots and grind only for 1 dose. you check it, if it goes to slow, you go one more back and clean gruinder, THAN you grind 1 dose more. 2 or 3 times and you will get perfect grinding.

I just got a used Rocky grinder. It works great but I read about


the grinding itself makes noise. if you have noise in empty spinning than you should consider changing bearings( 2 of them) in the motor.
during opening grinder pay attention to lower holder of burr which spins together with axis, try to be gentle with that part.

  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.
