Blade installed upside down

560 Electric burr grinder - My mother in law installed the blade upside down and I can't get it to even budge much less come out. Is there a special tool to get the center screw out? Will that release the blade. Thanks

Order that I have tried successfully is the bearings at the bottom in the slight depressions, springs through the little sleeves in the grinder post placed on top of the bearings. Then secure the grinder post with the center screw. Be sure the springs are all the way through the sleeves and resting on the bearings.

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.

The page at http://www.fixya.com/support/t4009992-upper_burr_stuck_upside_down has a solution that doesn't require disassembling the unit -- I'd try the manufacturer first (800-220-5701) before taking anything apart.

My grinder takes 3 times longer to grind now and makes a grating sound.. have emptied out all beans and taped out machine with no luck. cant access blades to clean... started 2 days ago. owned for 2 yrs


Here is something maybe you can try. Of course I know what your problem is, its caked up and dirty from the oil of the beans, over a period of time they form like guey mess. You were on the right path by emptying the bean and shaking it. If this grinder has different setting from maximum course to finest. I am sure it does, remember what mark it was on, write that down. Then put the grind setting on the maximum setting, what that will do is open up the blades, ( unplug machine for safety) so there no so close and then try and us a pipe cleaner, and get down best you can, then shake machine upside down again. Before you put grinder back on the mark you originally had it, turn machine back on and let it try and run with blades set at maximum setting. That will help throw some of that junk out, then turn upside down again and shake, even can use a shop vac and **** some of it out. then dry and put setting back to original setting and see if it works. I hope this helps, let me know by rating my advice. Thanks Mike

The grinder isn't working...the blade isn't spinning.


chances are your motor is burned out or the bearing has gone, it would be less hassle to replace the grinder than repair it. in any case blade coffee grinders are not the best thing to use, they create an inconsistent grind leading to a bad extraction, if youre grinding for anything upto a filter machine then a basic burr grinder will do, if its espresso then youll need a ceramic hand grinder like the porlex mini or be prepared to spend serious money on an electric burr grinder (mine, a mazzer super jolly was over £300)

I am looking for a new blade for this product. Do you have them and what is the cost?


Compare the price of a new blade versus a new BURR grinder.

BURR grinders are more consistent for grinding coffee, blade grinders, you have to guess and some grounds will be finer than others.

This is the reason you don't see a BLADE coffee grinder for commercial applications.

There are some good home burr grinders (some with a timer) and not that expensive.

Hmm, I have Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder #560, and I accidentally placed the upper burr back in upside down. Now it is stuck. I do not see the "black section with a long slot" around the blade.


Yes! I had the same issue with putting the burr in upside down and then twisting it an effectively "locking" it in there incorrectly. I tried the "knife" solution that worked for some people here, but it was placing the bean container back on and twisting counter clockwise that did the trick!

So glad I found this thread and didn't give up trying to fix my burr grinder (which we love).

Thanks to jaybayca!

I accidentally placed the upper burr in upside down. Now it is wedged in and I can't get it out. Any suggestions?


I've posted this in a few other places on this site (there are many ways to ask the same question), but try putting the clear bean container back on and untwisting as if to unlock it -- the problem isn't just that we put the upper burr in upside down, but then we locked it into place with the bean container. More info at http://www.fixya.com/support/t4009992-upper_burr_stuck_upside_down or try Capresso at 800.220.5701.

What do you do when the grinding blade will not come off for cleaning?


Hi
With the bean hopper on, turn the grinder upside down. Rotate the bean hopper to loosen any grounds that might be holding the burr holder. Now remove the bean hopper and try again to remove the holder. Only the outer burr comes off, this way.

The upper burr stuck upside down!


Yes, this butter knife trick is the way that Capresso customer service recommends. Just to clarify the tip of the butter knife is the only portion inserted...DO NOT shove the entire blade into the grinder. Just the tip in the furthest to the right side of the "smiley face ****" that is on the top of the grinder without the clear plastic hopper. just imagine a birds eye view. Once you have the tip of the butter knife all the way to the right of the "smiley face ****" then just rotate counter-clockwise until it does not go any further. This should have dislodged the top part of the grinding cone and then simply pick it up with your fingers, flip 180 and put it in the correct way.

Cleaned the Solis Maestro grinder and re set it to a fine espresso setting but the grind is coming out very course. What should i do?


Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

Oily beans seem to have clogged our coffee grinder up. What can we do?


Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift it off. Remove the outer burr with the 2 wings and clean under the burr. Clean the opening going to the chute for ground coffee(inside where the burr was).
Install the outer burr. Install the bean hopper. Rotate the bean hopper to the French press grind (coarsest) and operate the grinder. This will clean the burrs and the passages. If it starts to clog, repeat the last part to clean the burrs and passage. It must be grinding to go to a finer setting, but you can go to a coarser setting any time. Another thing. Turn the grinder upside down (empty) and rotate the bean hopper back and forth to clean the threads of the adjusting burr..

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.
