Question about Solis Maestro Electric Burr Grinder
The motor will not run. The burr grinder has been cleaned. It is not clogged. The motor shaft will not turn at all. It appears that the motor has "seized". Where can I purchase a new motor. How does the outer plastic cover come off? Thank you for your anticipated answer.
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.

Does the motor make noise? If so, it is getting electricity, and it is unlikely to be blown fuse. If there is no motor hum, it could be the fuse, but it could also be one of the switches.
There is a timer switch which can be tested for continuity with a multimeter. There is a pressure switch which senses the presence of the hopper. This switch failed on my 8-10 year old el60, and I was able to clean it with a spray of contact cleaner ( not wd40 - http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/2-goldwing-technical-forum/366596-never-use-wd-40-electrical-connections.html can get dirty).
