Call these people.
They will email you easy instructions on how to fix the grinder, will sell you the part for cheap. I had the same problem, once you get the instructions it is very easy to fix.

Hi There is a spring that holds tension on the paul (ratchet) underneath that is broken. You need to replace the spring. Remove the plate on the bottom of the doser to see the paul and spring. The spring is flat on most Rocky's.

Rancilio Rocky w/ doser: clean sweep of coffee grounds


The Rancilio Rocky coffee grinder is a superb, highly recommended machine, but its doser is pretty useless in the home. First reason: you want to grind coffee instants before you brew or pull your espresso shot; otherwise, the grinds just lose aromatics and flavor. The doser only works for multiple doses, so you're better off just grinding the amount you need each time. If you're buying a Rocky, get the doserless model.

If you have the doser model, like I do, you also find that the vanes which sweep the coffee into your portafilter or cone leave a layer of grounds on the doser floor. If not cleaned out, they turn rancid. There are coffee web sites with fairly complicated instructions on how to modify the vanes to do a clean sweep. Here's the simple way:

Flip up the doser cover, and spin the vanes while pressing your finger lightly on the outer top edge of one vane. The vanes have enough play so the pressure brings one into light contact with the doser floor, sweeping 99% of the grounds into your waiting portafilter.

Briel Java coffee grinder doser failure


My doser lever failed. I diassembled the doser housing (three screws in the base) and found the return spring had fractured. I did not have any spring steel (such as a piece of clock spring) so I found it possible to cut a piece out of an old feeler gauge (38 thou) using tinsnips. I cut to the correct length and glued into the plastic housing as originally -just saved myself $100 and more importantly to me, all the pain of getting the grind setting correct on a replacement grinder

I have a Gaggia burr grinder, Brevetti Gaggia SA Model MDF, s/n 7262. The handle that you flick back and forth to let the grinds come out broke off inside the unit.fixable? 707=837-8916 Thanks Anne


Look inside the grinder, The lever is attach to a SPRING .
May be the lever is disconnected (unhooked) from the spring.

AND YES IS FIXABLE.

It cost you about $15-$30 for the parts.

How can I clean my Gaggia burr coffee grinder?


For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

Unit over heated


You will have to dismantle the burr chamber and clean out all the grounds, make sure the hole to the dosing chamber is clean also. Check the rectifier and filter assembly behind the motor to make sure nothing is burnt. Reassemble and test grinder.

Broken Handle on Coffee Grinder


Nice unit! Replace the part. Try www.smallappliance.com.

If you want to try to glue it first, get a product from 3 M. I think they call it super strength glue. Scrape off all traces of whatever you used before. Follow the instructions exactly.
