To disassemble the Krups 203B grinder locate the four recessed clips which snap into the base. Tip the unit over and look at the base. I was not able to unsnap these without damaging the clips. Once the clip ends were removed the base and top separated easily. The AC cord is soldered to two connections. The cord was easily shortened and resoldered solving the intermittent power problem. The base and top were reassembled and a small amount of glue in a few locations secured the base to the top.

There are four slots in the bottom through which you can see the attachment clips. These clips are not mounted on the base but clip into the base. There is a special 4 prong tool that is used to depress these but if you don't have one, which you most certainly will not have, you need to use four small nails to open it up. Looking at them from the bottom, the clips look like a capital E with an extra horizontal leg. try to drive your nails in to the middle of the back of the E, that is on the flat side. After you have done this use a claw hammer to pry the bottom off by inserting the claws into the seam between the bottom and the top and twisting until something gives. You will probably get the bottom off without destroying more than one of the clips. No matter, you can tape or glue the ****** back together.

If power lose was your problem, remove the switch from its clip then test it to see if depressing the button causes the contact rod to touch both of the copper plates which are mounted on opposite sides of the switch, be careful while making this test - you have to have the grinder plugged in and you do not want to be touching any electrical contacts, the blade or the motor. Also beware of the torque from the motor causing you to drop the grinder. Also, beware of the torque from the motor causing you to drop the grinder in the unlikely event that it is working.

If depressing the switch doesn't cause the switch shaft to come in contact with both plates then get a pair of plyers and bend the copper plates down so that contact can be readily be made.

Retest to confirm the fix works then reassemble, using tape, glue or whatever and then -- it's coffee time!!

In my above solution there is a segment that reads "of the back of the E" which should be "at the back of the "E"".

Krups 203 Blade Replacement Procedure


<span>Krups is among one of the foremost names in coffeemakers, espresso machines, blenders and toaster ovens. Krups also makes coffee bean grinders, such as the Krups 203a. This portable, plug-in grinder has a removable lid and bean grinder chamber. The blade on the Krups bean grinder is fastened to the bottom of the grinder chamber. You may need to replace the blade on your Krups 203. The Krups 203 comes with a limited 1-year warranty, but the company recommends you send your grinder to the company to make repairs. Order replacement parts for your grinder by calling the Krups customer service department at 1-800-526-5377.<br /><br />Unplug your Krups grinder from the wall.<br /><br />Remove the grinder's lid, and use a cloth to wipe out the inside of the grinder chamber.<br /><br />Put your safety gloves on and then grasp the blade of the grinder with your channel locks.<br /><br />Use the pliers to turn the plastic fastening nut to the left as you continue to hold the blade with the channel locks. Once the plastic nut comes loose, twist it off by hand and remove it, along with the plastic washer beneath it and the old blade.<br /><br />Set the new blade in place, and replace the washer and nut. You will have to hold the new blade in place with the channel locks as you tighten the securing nut. <br /><br />Things You'll Need<br /><br /> Cloth<br /> Safety gloves<br /> Channel locks<br /> Pliers<br /></span>

Fill out water


The Krups Burr Grinder GVX2 featured in the picture is not a coffee maker, per se, it only grind coffee beans to use in other coffee makers. It is a lousy machine, and I would recommend returning it or not buying it.
DO NOT PUT WATER INTO THIS MACHINE. It will cause electric shock.

I bought a Krups GVX2 coffee grinder and am not able to get it to work. I have followed the instructions "to the letter" but once it's plugged in and switched on, the "on" switch on...


I know that this machine is sensitive with the lids needing to be securely fastened (both the top and the plastic catch bottom container) maybe that is it.
