You need to swivel the brew basket cover until it locks for the coffee to grind. Then turn the machine on and the coffe will grind. , then turn the machine off, add water and press the auto on to use the auto timer.

Brand new machine and the pressure gauge doesn't appear to be working, I've made about 10 coffees over the weekend and experimented with the tamping etc. And the gauge has not moved once? Am I...


It could be a faulty machine, what is your grind setting? Make sure your using the dual wall single cup as a test. Set the grind to around 13 and grind your own beans, don't use supermarket bought beans or preground coffee. Both are garbage.
Also if your using the dual wall basket, make sure that you leave the dial guage in the dual wall setting. Then tamp the coffee so it sits roughly 3-5mm below the rim, this is what I have found is best for this unit.
Then secure group head in to unit, press single cup and you should hopefully get a pressure reading, if it isn't going up you are under extracting and your grind is prob to coarse (correct me if I'm wrong), I've found 13 is not to coarse not to fine. Shouldn't feel like fine sand, when coarse but not powdery.
If the gauge does not move in to the grey area your unit is most likely faulty.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Grind setting


This grinder is really pretty crappy, I have the same one. If you want anything less coarse, you will have to grind it multiple times. My Grandmother tried using this and it ended up spitting out a few half and whole beans even after grinding. The best you would end up getting would be a drip coffee grind.
