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>

I can hear the grinder on nuova simonelli try to gring, but it seems like soemthing is stuck. how can i fix this?


Remove the bean hopper and vac out all beans, then remove black cover, then 3 phillips screws, and top part of burrs should come off. Clean our chamber then reassemble. DO NOT TURN ON. Make sure middle nut in chamber spins freely, use fingers to turn, if not adjust setting to coarser, until it moves freely, then turn on grinder. All you have to do now is set your grind.

My cuisinart cbm-18 does not grind at below a 10 setting?


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

I'm guessing the problem is that the grinders blades, or the parts that do the grinding have become somewhat dull, (opposite from Sharp.) and no longer can get to the beans like it used to.

Cleaning the machine properly might improve its performance.


CLEANING/MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Be sure plug has been removed from outlet.

2. Beans can be removed from the hopper by lifting off the lid and pouring excess beans out. Hold down the Manual button to cleanout any remaining beans.

3. The bean hopper, bean hopper lid, grind chamber, and grind chamber lid can be washed by hand with hot, soapy water or placed in the top shelf of a dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.

a. Remove the bean hopper by rotating counter-clockwise bringing the selector past grind setting 18, align the arrows and lift up. Make sure the hopper is empty.

b. Remove grind chamber by pulling toward you.


4. Remove the burr grinder, once the bean hopper has been removed, by grasping the metal handle and lifting up. Use the brush to remove grinds or wash by hand. Replace the burr grinder onto the unit and rotate until the piece is fully inserted. Push handle down and replace hopper.

NOTE: The hopper will not attach to the unit if the grinder has not been fully inserted.

5. Wipe body of grinder with a damp cloth.

6. Any other servicing or maintenance should be performed by an authorized service representative.

it can be 3 problems: 1 bearings old and noisy(i dont belive it it the case) 2 seting of grinding to very fine 2 trifase motor problem

My mazzer coffee grinder brings out medium to almost a whole bean grinds ,,,am trying to get a fine grind(for the espresso) but it's not working ,,, i've tried to move the scale to all the numbers but the...


Lets do this, remove the bean hopper, and make sure there are no beans in the burr chamber. Then looking down at the collar with the numbers back up screw if there is one on it. Now if memory serves me right clockwise is coarse and counter is fine. Look down in the burr chamber, notice the nut in the middle, turn it with your fingers that will move the bottom burr, if burr turns freely we will move on if not plug in grinder and let it grind out remaining beans. With beans gone unplug grinder, then turn collar towards fine until you cannot go no more, now try turning nut it will be hard if not impossible to move, turn collar towards coarse until you can barely move bottom burr with fingers, you will hear and feel the burrs touching, that will be our bottom setting. Now pick a spot on the grinder you can use the small notch in the middle, count out 16 notches towards coarse and turn collar to that point. Use the notches around the collar not the ones on the top next to the numbers. Your grind should be almost perfect, depending on blend and machine you might have to adjust 1 notch to the left or right after testing.

Burrs spin but no grinding


Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.
