Question about Zassenhaus Knee Mill Hand Crank 156 Manual Burr Grinder

Open Question

Grinding adjustment tightens as I grind clockwise. Have to stop and loosen it every 10 grinds or so. It takes over 100 grinds to get a full grind. It also makes a different, louder noise than it did.

Starter wont turn engine over


Why did you change the starter in the first place? The battery need a full charge for the starter to operate properly, Need year make and model for more help. If the starter is grinding now and wasn't prior to replacement, it may have to be shimmed or the starter could be defective.

Post cleaning the blades are touching


You should call your vendor for service. Especially if this equipment is on loan from them.
*** The following is for information only. Equipment should be serviced by a qualified tech. ****
* Bunn.com has a free download of their manuals.
* Check the parts diagram if you have assembled everything properly. Often people forget the 'button' (looks like a nickel with a dent in it.)
* Perform the following adjustments WITHOUT beans as they will prevent you from hearing to any problems.
* Opening the burrs too wide (turning too far counter clockwise) will have the plate scraping the cover and you get metal flaking along with a teeth chattering/grinding sound. Turn the adjustment several times CLOCK-WISE and try again. If you still get grinding then take everything apart and check for objects in the burr area then reassemble according to the parts diagram. Make sure you have the correct model and diagram.
* Closing the burrs too tight (Clock-wise) will have the burrs touch and lock up together. There is another loud grinding sound but not as bad as hitting the case. Though back it off fast as you will ruin the plates if they over heat.
* Note; Once you get things in range. (No loud metal chatter or grinding sounds. Just a nice hum and whirling sound. The you will need to calibrate the plate. Go ahead and add a few table spoons of beans. Keep it to a very small amount as you will probably end up dumping them (a waste). I use 'expired' or old beans for this.
* Calibration is done by grinding a few beans at a time. You must clear the beans completely before adjusting to the next setting. Keep turning the dial to the fine setting. Keep grinding small doses until you get to the level of grind that matches the finest setting on the dial (usually Turkish grind which is almost a powder.) Adjust this back (Larger) a bit as most people end up burning the beans at this fine a grind. It also takes forever to grind a whole bag, even with only 10 oz of beans. Lock down the adjustment screw once your satisfied with the grind matching the dial.
* Note; If you find the motor trips out often then back off the grinder for a larger (course) grind.
*Finally check with your vendor if your still having problems.

HOw do I change grinding wheels on a 6 inch Craftsman bench grinder? Thanks.


There should be a guard over the wheel, held by several screws. Remove this. The nut holding the wheels loosen in the same direction the wheels turn so this would be anti-clockwise for the right hand wheel and clockwise for the left wheel. When replacing the wheel, ensure you replace the cardboard or rubber washers on the wheel. These spread the pressure evenly when the nut is tightened.

How do I change parts, i.e. from grinding wheel to sandpaper wheel?


There is a collet type on most rotary type tools. This is located on the end of the tool where the grinding wheel is inserted in the device. The collet has a normal thread pattern. Turn counter clockwise to loosen the collet. Some time the collet gets tightened to toght and then just take a block of wood and gently hit the collet to see if this will loosen the bit.

My Solis Maestro takes a long time to grind and no longer grinds for espresso. How do you remove the burrs to clean them? Should they be replaces?


HI
Yes the burrs will wear out. They can be replaced. To remove the outer burr. Twist the bean hopper counterclockwise until it stops. Lift the bean hopper out. There is a cream colored ring with 2 tabs that will lift out holding the outer burr. To get the inner cone burr out is a little more difficult. We use a vice grip and grab the burr, and lock the pliers to it. Then with a quick movement clockwise on the pliers, you loosen it. Then clockwise unscrew the burr. When you install the new burr, it truns on counter clockwise until it stops. Insert the new outer burr. Push down so the tabs will lock in. Install the bean hopper into the correct slots ( 1 large tab and 1 small tab). Twist clockwise to turn on and test. Remember it must be grinding to turn to a finer grind but can be turned to a coarser grind any time.

Whatever the setting is at the grind is always fine. What can I do to re-calibrate the grinder?


Grind Adjustment Tools required: Large blade and medium Phillips head screwdrivers In order to adjust the grind, follow these steps (Refer to figure A): 1. Remove all coffee from the hopper. 2. Set selector knob to the finest setting (Espresso or Turkish) depending on the model. 3. Loosen both knob retainer screws in selector knob one turn only. 4. While pressing the bag switch, located behind the spout, press the START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 810 model - Press the ON or START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 5. With the grinder still running, turn the adjusting screw in the center of the selector knob slowly to the right until a slight clicking noise is heard. Immediately turn the adjusting screw to the left one grind setting. This is the finest grind obtainable. 6. Tighten both of the knob retainer screws. Once the ESPRESSO grind has been set (Turkish for Model 835, 875, 890), the other grind settings will automatically set correctly. 7. Press the STOP or OFF button. IMPORTANT: Always be sure the grinding burrs are not touching while the machine is running on the ESPRESSO/TURKISH setting. Otherwise serious damage to the motor may result. dr_buckhead.png

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

With the dial turned to "Turkish" I still get a very course grind. How to adjust/fix?


On the adjusting knob there are 2 set screws (outside of the center) and an adjustment screw (the one in the middle). First make sure the LARGE screws on the side of the SELECTOR plate are tight. Start with the selector on Turkish, with the grinder OFF loosen the set screws about one full turn each. Leaving the selector on Turkish turn the grinder on and gradually VERY SLOWLY turn the center screw clockwise. Eventually you will hear the burrs inside touching. After they touch back of the center screw about 1/8 of a turn. Tighten the SET SCREWS tight as they may allow the grinder to go out of adjustment if not tight. Test the grind with very little coffee and throw those grounds out. Then grind and brew! If these grinders are adjusted too fine you may have problems with the grinds not falling and may back up.

Car squeals when i turn the wheel, and grinds. sometimes the power steering does not work at all. Just got a new alternator installed, this problem was not there before. it is a 2003 GMC ENVOY XL SLT


Check to see if the belt(s) are properly tightened. May have loosened up after the alternator changed.

Or, the P/S pump is failing. The grinding could be the bearings inside the P/S pump.

If the problem was not there before the Alternator was done, I would take it back, and ask.

Can this be fixed??? my grinder stopped grinding ????


Try to remove all coffee beans first by hand, then s*ck all remaining with a vacum cleaner.
Undjust the grinder to more gross coffee.
Try to work back again the grinder. If it is working then adjust back again to your previus postion but remeber that you can go back again one step at the time so the grinded coffee wil not blocked the grinding plates.
Good luck
