Question about Baratza Virtuoso Burr Coffee Grinder - Clearance - EssentialEspresso.com
We have a virtuoso Burr Coffee grinder, just bought. We set the grind to about 10, and hit the button. After a few seconds it stalls. We have to stir the beans, then it goes again, then stalls. We have tried various settings, from 5 to 15 but same thing happens. Are our beans too oily. What do you recommend we do?
Use less beans when grinding! Or if your not happy with it return for better model!
(its no falt of yours!)

The current Kitchenaid A9 burr grinder glass jar is interchangable with the original Hobart/Kitchenaid A9 glass jar; therefor, the gasket should also interchange - contact Kitchenaid customer service to order a gasket.
Setting the grind is accomplished by grasping the body of the ginder in one hand and the grind-selector ring (collar that the jar screws into) in the other. Hold the base tight and turn the selector ring clockwise for a finer grind, counterclockwise for coarser. Be careful not to completely unscrew the selector ring; if you are not sure how much adjustment is left, screw it all the way clockwise until it stops (finest grind); then, back it off, up to one full turn to make the grind coarser.
The selector ring has the words coarse, medium and fine cast into it; these are rough postition markers. There is a triangle cast into the body of the grinder, just above the brand name, that can be used to diral in a preferred level of grind. I use a medium-coarse grind for drip coffee makers; to do likewise, position the selector ring so that the triangle is pointing midway between the words coarse and medium.

If you can adjust the bean hopper to the coarsest grind setting and try again. If that doesn't work, remove the grounds drawer and vacuum the inside top where the grounds drawer was. You have a blockage above the grounds drawer.
You can also rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise and lift it off. Remove the outer burr by lifting it out. Vacuum the grounds out from both sides( burr side and grounds drawer side) probe the opening to remove any packed grounds, then reassemble. The bean hopper has 2 tabs on the bottom. 1 large and 1 small. Make sure that they go in their respective place.
If you cannot rotate the bean hopper? Remove the beans and ground hopper. Turn the machine upside down and then gently rotate the bean hopper back and forth until it will rotate completely (270 degrees). This will shake out any grounds in the threads. Do not force it as you can break the tabs that rotate the burr adjustment.

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.
