SOURCE: Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr... Problem:

First, unlock and unscrew the upper burr carrier. Clean and check the upper burr by gently running your finger over the teeth in the cutting direction. It shoild feel moderately sharp. If it feels very blunt, look at the teeth under a good light. If you see a substantial "flat spot" at the top of the teeth, probably the burr set will need replacement.
For the bottom burr, clean carefully its teeth, and the entire area in which it is housed. Include the outlet orofice as well. You may find a lot of oily deposits within here, so just clean them off as best as possible.
When all is clean, insert the top burr holder back in place. Screw it down until both burrs touch, then back it off (say) 1/4 turn, and lock.
Put some beans in the top, and switch on. Adjust the top burr until the desired grind is obtained.
The ground coffee should feel like a coarse sand when close to the desired grind size.

SOURCE: Zassenhaus knee coffee mill grinds too coarsely

I have a Zass and sometimes have a problem with it self adjusting, but when I do need to adjust it, I find that I have give it a good tap on the top to make sure it adjusts. So, just turn the knob counter clockwise as far as it will go, then give it a good knock on the top and bottom and try again. My mill offers the full grinding range, from a fine powder to large chunks.

SOURCE: Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr - Thermal Fuse

Open the grinder by removing both knobs.
The front knob is held in place by friction. Use two flat head screwdrivers to pry it off.
The side knob is held in by tabs you have to push. Pry forward to expose the tab, and use another screwdriver to press the tab, and use the other screwdriver to press the tab on the other side.
Now look at the bottom of the grinder. There are four tabs on the outer shell, use screwdriver s to pry the tabs to separate the bottom of the grinder from the shell, and pull off the shell. Your fuse should be attached to the motor wiring coil.

SOURCE: I have a Krups GVX1 burr coffe grinder.

You will have to disassenble the grinder by removing the screws from the bottom of the grinder. You should be able to get to the thermal fuse once you gain access to the insides.

Well worth attempting the repair if you have the replacement thermal fuse needed and can handle a soldering iron to unsolder and soldering needed to remove and replace the failed part.

The thermal fuse isn't like a normal glass tube automotive fuse, but you should be able to get a replacement one from Radio Shack, if you can't get one from the manufacturer.

Hope this helps you get it fixed and best regards!

I took everything apart to give it a good cleaning and now all settings produce a very fine grind. Any thoughts?


I had the same problem with too fine a grind when I took mine completely apart to clean (including the lower burr). The solution I finally came around to was to further tighten the star-shaped screw which holds the lower burr assembly in place. I had originally just tightened it until the lower burr until the lower burr assembly started to turn with the screw, but that wasn't enough. So I held the assembly in place and tightened the screw further and I'm back to my previous grind coarseness/fineness.

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.

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.

Does not grind evenly When I try to grid a coarse grind for french press coffee I get a lot of small grinds.


I was a little confused at first but where ir says coarse on the adjustment "wheel" is actually the fine setting. If you want coarse you need to turn it the opisite direction. If you look cloosely you will notice there is an arrow beside where it says coarse pointing to the right and beside where it says fine there is an arrow pointing left. It kind of makes no sense, but I guess since they've been making it for like 70 years they figure why fix it. I hope this helps, I had the same problem the first time I used mine, and the manual doesn't really mention it.

I have a Krups burr grinder and I am wondering what setting I should use for the 800ESXL?


Hi,

Really, this is personnal, but first you have to acheive an adjustment that makes your coffee possible to extract. Start with the coarser you can and reduce gradually. Do it one portion at the time, don't grind a whole bag !
The result should be a light hazelnut crema color, deep foam without hole in it.
If the crema is light cream color, the grind is too coarse.
If the crema is dark, uneven or runny, the grind is too fine, or you are using a wrong type of coffee (like only robusta, go for 100% arabica), or it's not toasted properly.
If the water doesn't flow at all, your grind is too fine.
It should take not more than 20 seconds to extract the coffee, if it's very short, grind is too coarse, if it takes longer, the grind is too fine.

Good luck,

JF

Parts and Grind Selection


The current Kitchenaid A9 burr grinder glass jar is interchangable with the original Hobart/Kitchenaid A9 glass jar; therefor, the gasket should also interchange - contact Kitchenaid customer service to order a gasket.

Setting the grind is accomplished by grasping the body of the ginder in one hand and the grind-selector ring (collar that the jar screws into) in the other. Hold the base tight and turn the selector ring clockwise for a finer grind, counterclockwise for coarser. Be careful not to completely unscrew the selector ring; if you are not sure how much adjustment is left, screw it all the way clockwise until it stops (finest grind); then, back it off, up to one full turn to make the grind coarser.

The selector ring has the words coarse, medium and fine cast into it; these are rough postition markers. There is a triangle cast into the body of the grinder, just above the brand name, that can be used to diral in a preferred level of grind. I use a medium-coarse grind for drip coffee makers; to do likewise, position the selector ring so that the triangle is pointing midway between the words coarse and medium.

Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to turn...you'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.
