Question about Krups 203 Grinder

Open Question

Krups bean grinder, Type: F203. I hear the motor, but blade does not spin.

There are no obvious beans or other material jamming it. There doesn't appear to be any rust formations on the blades or other parts. It's as if the motor is seizing up.

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.

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.

Perserverance...it's cheaper.

Also found a limit switch which i think is thermal so once removed the grinder is operational again!

SOURCE: Removing the blade on the Krups 203-45 coffee grinder

There are four little opening on the bottom through which you can see the clips. To get to the clips insert a screwdriver on the side and push one the clips inwards. Simultaneously, pull the bottom out. Repeat for other three clips. The process is not easy, I broke two of the clips. However, bottom seemed to go back on ok.

My grinder is not grinding is it blocked?


if you hear it trying to grind, but is not, or hear it spinning and is not grinding, more than likely it is blocked, or so oily that bean will not drop. Coffee beans, have so much oils in them, that after a while it gets caked up, and beans either get jammed, or stuck. If you hear grinder low humming, then it is probably stuck or clogged, if it is on but hear like a spinning sound, beans are not dropping, because they are stuck because of oil build up. If you can get to the grinder, turn machine off, unplug, get all beans out, if turning up side down to do so, get clean dry terry cloth,and start wiping and cleaning, when you feel your done, spray a LITTLE, no much pam in there, refill and try again. As said early if it is a low humming, like motor turning but jammed, do not use until jam is fixed, you will burn up motor, then have more expensive fix. Let me know if this helped and solved problem. Mr Bean Man from Fixya

Makes funny noise when I try to grind coffee and no ground coffee comes down into the handle. Seems like something is stuck in the grinder.


if you hear it trying to grind, but is not, or hear it spinning and is not grinding, more than likely it is blocked, or so oily that bean will not drop. Coffee beans, have so much oils in them, that after a while it gets caked up, and beans either get jammed, or stuck. If you hear grinder low humming, then it is probably stuck or clogged, if it is on but hear like a spinning sound, beans are not dropping, because they are stuck because of oil build up. If you can get to the grinder, turn machine off, unplug, get all beans out, take like a wooden chop stick and put it in area where beans go and move the chop stick around the gears. you like your reaming it out kind of. turn machine back on, try this procedure a few times. ( MAKE SURE MACHINE IS UNPLUGGED WHEN DOING THIS) As said early if it is a low humming, like motor turning but jammed, do not use until jam is fixed, you will burn up motor, then have more expensive fix. Let me know if this helped and solved problem. Mr Bean Man from Fixya

The grinder spins but no beans get grided. sometimes if i push them down it will work for a while.


Remove all beans from grinder and with the remain beans adjust the grinder to more gross grinding and the make 3 to 4 coffees.
Then Use a vacum cleaner and absorve as much from the grinder. Wash also the Beans hopper with soap and hot water so all oil remianing go away. Dry it very well and put back in place.
Now add new add some new beans and try to make an espresso and when the grinder spins then rotate back to the original grinding position. Remeber that you must go back to fine one step at a time not at once since this will blocked the grinder blades with grounded coffe and grinder will not rotate.
You should to this often is you use oily dark roated beans beans. I sugest to find also a better quality beans which are more light color thus less oily.
