SOURCE: Starbucks Barista Burr Grinder (Solis 166) motor does not run

Hi
Remove bean hopper
Remove grounds hopper
Remove timer knob on the side
Turn the grinder upside down
There are 4 slits on the outside edge.
Insert a screw driver into the **** and pry gently outward with a
little downward pressure on the outside until the side slips a bit.
Repeat on all 4 slits and the shell should slide off.
There is a fuse on the side of the motor that will blow and stop the motor. It is a thermal fuse and should be replaced by a qualified tech.

SOURCE: Motor revs but grinder does not engage.

Hi,
I am what you would call an expert when it comes to Baratza repairs.
The problem you are describing is not an unusual one. It sounds like the main drive gear has been stripped due to something foreign (likely a stone) sneaking into your grinder with the beans. It would have jammed the burrs, and because of the powerful torque from the motor, the drive gear has been stripped so it will no longer (or rarely) engage the burrs.

To solve this problem you will need to contact COAG Ltd (if you live in Canada) or Baratza if you are from the US. If you machine is still under warranty (less than a year old) this repair will be free of charge and you shouldn't be parted from your grinder for long.

I hope this helps anyone who stumbles upon this and finds themselves with the same problem.
Kind Regards
Emily

SOURCE: My Barista Burr Coffee Grinder suddenly grinds too fine.

If it is any consolation, mine just did the same thing, now takes too long to grind and it is way to fine dispite a thorough cleaning by disassembly.

I have Barista grinder. I've had grinder for about 3-4 years and it stop moving. I unplugged cord, tried to turn the feeder and plugged in still not moving except timer is clicking. I wonder why it...


Hi It could be the timer switch but if you hear the timer move(whirring) it is probably OK. There is a thermal fuse on the motor that will go out and you just have to replace the thermal fuse. Its under the wrap on the side of the motor. Which grinder do you have?

I took my Starbucks Barista Conical Burr Grinder apart to clean it, and now I cannot seem to get the top burr back on. This is an old model, purchased in 2000, and has been running great. I used to manage...


I think when you fix the front burr then you need to loose the middle screw. Then it will fix easily.
But don't run it right away.gently tighten the screw and tight until you feel some tightness .Then start the grinder and tighten or loose it according to your grinding specification
thanks

Starbucks barista burr grinder: the motor runs but the beans won't grind


The drive mechanism from the motor to the burrs has failed in some way. It is necessary to disassemble the machine down to the basic components to determine the fault. Good luck!

Motor stopped working


Hi
There is a thermal fuse on the side of the motor to prevent the motor from burning up. You can replace the fuse (it is a 103c thermal fuse, crimp it on ) and you should be in for more grinding.
It could also be you timer switch, or bean hopper switch, or a broken tab on your adjustment collar.
