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.

How much coffee would it take to make the 55 cups in this coffee maker, and can you use the same coffee as you use for drip machines?


Your model sounds like the West Bend 59055 - Large Coffee Urn, 60 Cup.
The User Manual for your coffer urn can be found here:

http://www.westbend.com/supportdata/L5613B_LargeCapacityUrns-All.pdf

Instruction for making coffee can be found on page 5. For 55 cups is would take 3 1/4 cups of coffee.

Use an electric perc or regular grind coffee; if you grind your own this should be a medium to coarse grind.

Do not use 'drip' or finely ground coffee as this could plug the drain holes in the basket and cause the urn to flood.

Coffee drips very slowly and descaling not helping


I had the same problem. Check and make sure your dose is not turned up too highor your grind is not set too fine? Turning the dose knob clockwise decreasesit. I have ended up with my grind set on 13 which is more coarse than averagefor the beans I'm currently using. Adjust the grind while the grinder isworking by one number and then brew 3 or 4 coffees before changing it again. Ittakes that long for the grind to be seen in the coffee. The higher the number,the coarser the grind will be. Any time you use different beans it is possiblethat you'll have to reset the grind.

The machine it is new and coffee it comes out very quckly and has not body at all I dont know it I should to give back the espresso or it is what I can disolve myself?Any advice? please, thank you


Agreed.... you need a high quality burr grinder for a high quality espresso machine. Then put it on Fine grind and adjust the grind up or down from there until the espresso comes out with a slow smooth flow. Also be sure to tamp the grinds with a tamper so it is evenly compressed!

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

Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse


Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.

Rancilio grinder does not grind fine enough for espresso


After taking the top burr off several times and rescrewing it, I finally was able to exert enough force to get it to turn a couple of extra turns. Evidently there was some oil or coffee gunk (although I could see none) that snagged the bur. Now it appears to work as before.

This is a great, service by the way. Even the process of thinking through the problem so I could post it helped me solve it.
