Question about Krups Burr Coffee Grinder
After grinding some beans, the grinder wouldn't go back on. I cleaned the machine and tried it again but to no avail. The blue light goes on but the motor doesn't.

Sound like it's choked up with grounds and oil. Burrs may also be blunt. U need to dismantle and clean/ check burrs, passages and body. If you can see "flats" on the burrs or they feel not sharp when you check with finger, they should be replaced.

I had the same problem, took it all apart, separated the two halves, and looked into the guts of the machine, not an easy task. Fiddled with this and that, and looked at the back of the switch mechanism, and heard it making a 'click' when depressed, so put it all back together, to no avail...It turns out the grinder needs to have two limit switches engaged, one between the lid of the ground coffee hopper and the underside of the grinder hopper housing, and the other between the grinder lid and the base of the unit. This last limit switch was my problem, it seems the lid wasn't making contact with the limit switch, so the unit didn't run. I cleaned out the narrow gap that the grinder lid sits within, pressed the lid down until I heard a small 'click' , pressed the on switch, and presto! it works. You can see this very tiny switch if you take off the grinder lid, and look in the narrow gap it sits in at a position of about three o'clock ( the back of the machine when viewed from the top being 12 o'clock. Hope this helps anyone else who can't find their receipt within the one year warranty period. This is the best burr grinder I've found for the money, and I'm glad mine's still o.k.

After reading the first two solutions, and confirming that the two switches referred to weren't the cause of the grinder no longer operating, the following brought our grinder back to working order; 'unlocking' the grinder part (and removing it), pouring water through, and poking a paper-clip into the opening which feeds the container for the grounds.

Check all connections and plug then after that it is a short behind the switch and will need to be sent back to the manufacturer.
