How to fix a bodum bistro electric coffee grinder that doesn't grind well


This can be caused by several things;
If it used to be good but is now faulty it is most likely that it just needs cleaning. If you are using beans that are 'oily' they can clog the grinder, you should anyway disassemble it and clean every year. Do not use soap and water, just brush it with a stiff brush (e.g. the stiffest type of toothbrush) and a vacuum cleaner.
There is also a possibility that something has got into the grinder along with the coffee beans that has damaged the grinding wheels; in that case you need to replace the wheels.

My Bunn coffee filter overflows during brewing. What a mess! Is there any way to slow down the water flow?


If this is a pour-over coffeemaker, you can't do anything about the flow. It's just gravity pushing the water out of the reservoir. But you can try using a coarser grind of coffee. If the grind is too fine (if you grind whole beans for too long in a blade grinder, for instance, or if you're using espresso grind coffee), the water can't flow through quickly enough and it backs up and overflows. Make sure your coffee is ground for a drip coffeemaker.

I have a bunn coffee grinder that keeps on jamming up everytime you put coffee beans in it. I took the front part off to clean it out every time it jams,but it keeps on doing the same thing. The model bunn...


It sounds as though your grind is out of adjustment. The grinder is probably set too fine. I have not worked on a G3 grinder but I would think it is like the Bunn G2. On the front knob you will find 2 small set screws and one larger adjustment screw (in the middle of the knob)
1. Set the selector knob to finest setting (Espresso or Turkish)
2. Loosen the 2 set screws about 2 turns.
3. Activate the start switch (you must activate the "bag switch" behind the chute)
4. With the grinder running, SLOWLY turn the center screw clockwise only until you hear a very slight whirring sound (this is the burrs touching).
5. Then, back off the center screw counter-clockwise about 1/8 of a turn, shut off grinder and re-tighten the set screws.
Check the grind in the "drip" setting by running a few beans through... the grounds should be about the consistency of sand. You should get a better flow through the machine with the grind adjusted properly. You may want to check the cleanliness of the hopper in the top... I have seen these dirty enough to impede the falling of the beans to the grinder.
Also, whenever you remove (for cleaning) the 2 larger screws that hold on the front "plate", be sure to put them back in evenly... kind of like one would with a wheel on a car- Finger-tight then slightly tighten each on a little at a time (back and forth) until tight.
Hope this helps.

Our bean grinder has stopped grinding. It spins but the beans do not grind. The machine works fine on the ground coffee option.


Did you put water in the grinder by mistake? If the grinder is wet it won't grind anymore,have to cleaned the blades physically .
OR are you using the beans from the fridge? It's a NO NO.

Hi, The ground coffee beans don't make it to the basket. How to fix this? Thank you,


First, you should call Cuisinart (800-726-0190) and see if your product is still under warranty. They may fix it for free. I was told that certain beans sometimes won't grind up fine enough to get through the screen in the grinder because of the oil in the bean. So first thing you can try is to freeze the beans and then try grinding them. If you have still have the problem, you either have an issue with your grinder or the grinder motor. You can buy a replacement grinder on Cuisinart's website for about $20. If its not the grinder, and its the motor the only thing you can do is find a spare motor online somewhere (impossible to find since they don't make spares for the motors; the only way to get one is from someone who has taken apart the same model for the parts). Hope this helps.

I bought new green coffee beans recently, roasted it myself and wanted to use it in the machine but the grinder gets stuck and won't turn. The new beans are harder and smaller than the type I used to have....


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).
