Question about Coffee Grinders
SOURCE: Krups coffee mill
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!!
