Open Question

How do I reassemble DCG4T burr grinder

I took the top part apart, unscrewed the plate with the springs and nibbles for cleaning the burr. Now I can't get it back together. What goes first into the holes of the plate: the springs I thought, although they don't go in. Can't find anything that tells me about the assembly.

SOURCE: poured water in my delonghi magnifica beans hopper.

Have you tried grinding a few cups of uncooked rice through the mechanism to see if this will shift the dried on coffee grounds. It worked for a friend of mine after several attempts

I took my Starbucks Barista Conical Burr Grinder apart to clean it, and now I cannot seem to get the top burr back on. This is an old model, purchased in 2000, and has been running great. I used to manage...

I think when you fix the front burr then you need to loose the middle screw. Then it will fix easily.
But don't run it right away.gently tighten the screw and tight until you feel some tightness .Then start the grinder and tighten or loose it according to your grinding specification
please rate me

How to open super jolly's base plate

  1. Disassemble the plastic container and douser cover
  2. Disassemble uper burr holder and take out 3 springs too.
  3. Disassemble the legs of grinder and bottom plate
  4. Disassemble the wires and swich(before disassembling be sure that you marked each wire)
  5. Unscrew the bottom plate of electro motor (2 screws you live just released)
  6. Take one METRIC BOLT M8 30 mm length and screw it in middle of bottom plate(it will pull the plate out slowly)
  7. Block the lower burr holder and unscrew the bolt in it. Instead that bolt you put one longer bolt (3-4cm longer)
  8. You stabilize the base of grinder and start to hit with hammer the bolt, each hitting will pull it bit down, you should move it 12 mm lower to get it out.
  9. Once when you have it out you can also change the bearings at your grinder not only revising the lower plate.
PS: Carefully with the pin in axis, it comes out easy, also it goes through bearing with rotor together. - I think i prescribed all stages of demoting the grinder motor(except windings) if you go for mounting with this manual only back ways i think you will succeed to put it back in function.

I received a new lower burr grinder part from SAECO for my machine but no instructions on how to replace it. I know how to clean and replace the removable grinder part that fits into this. Do you have...

If you only got the lower burr it won't work. They should be matching burrs.
If you don't do it right, you will damage the grinder. You need a #10 Torex bit.

Insert the bit into the screw in the middle of a very clean grinder. Turn clockwise to loosen. Once the screw is out, pull the burr out, but be careful. There are ball bearings and springs under the burr. Make sure that everything is clean before reassembly. There are 3 holes in the bottom of the grinder. The springs go into the holes first. Then the ball bearings set on top of the springs. Place the new lower burr on top of the springs. A washer and the corkscrew go in next. Insert the screw in and with the bit in place turn (with a little down force) clockwise until the screw drops into place, then turn counterclockwise. It should turn fairly easy. Once you start putting pressure on the springs, try to turn the corkscrew. There is a notch that it slips into in the bottom of the grinder. Once it locks into place keep turning the screw until you start to turn the burr. That should be tight enough. Now reassemble the top burr and adjust.

Spring loaded ball bearings - does the ball bearing sit on top of the spring or below the spring??

The ball bearing is a check valve. The ball should be in the input side of the water with the spring underneath.
input side ----->( O/////)-------> output side

Blade installed upside down

I did this, too. Tell your M-i-L not to feel bad--it's an easy mistake. A Torx T20 driver will remove the center screw. However, when you remove the rotating blade, 3 springs and 3 bearings will come flying out. I'm not sure what order they go in when you reassemble the grinder. I reassembled the unit, and ever since it has not been able to grind the coffee quite as fine as I would like. Have not been able to find any info, such as an exploded parts diagram, to tell me the proper assembly.

Embarassing but...

No, wait, I found it. If it's round and is (or used to be) white, it fits on the bottom of the clear plastic hopper. Replace it and you should be in good shape again.

Grinder is slipping.

  1. take out bean container
  2. disassemble 3 philips screws and take plastic out
  3. rotate the knob to try to get out the upper holder of burr. if it does not rotate than disasemble the knob and the gears(plastic big one is attached to upper holder of grinder, the other is together with knob.
  4. tru to rotate it manualy, with help of extra srews puted in gear holder holes.
  5. when you get it out, carefuly clean it, look for metal parts and stones(wich sometime comes with coffee)
  1. turn on the grinder and attach gently one marker to lower burr during spining. after you stop grinder, look if it is perfect circle marked in burr. if it is not than marked side is higher. you should consider getting it ok by putting adhesive paper under lower burr and check it again.
good luck and carefuly.

Cleaning grinding blades

mazzers have 3 springs in grinder body, each one support for upper burr holder. check for them , if it is not the case than consider that the spring could come with coffee. often we see stones and metal parts geting between burrs.
clean it again and look good for 3 springs , if they are in their place, close the burrs to finest than go back for half of circle and grind coffee.
