Question about Rancilio (RAROCKYND) Grinder

1 Answer

Rancilio Rocky is dead

Turn on the switch and... nothing happens. It's not the white master switch on the side. Is there an internal fuse or reset on this thing? There were no noticable issues before it suddenly went dead. The motor did not slow, sound difference, give off a burning smell, etc.

Hi. I had the same problem. Called my trusty local repair guy who said spray a little canned air around the front switch (without taking anything apart). I carefully cleaned around the switch, since this problem is caused by dirty connections behind the switch, then I blew a few blasts into the cracks. Presto! The machine works. Repair guy said sometimes the switch goes bad, too, and needs replacing.

    An ingenious tip had exactly the same problem and it worked just nicely by blowing with an air spray around the switch on the front and now the grinder works like never before, thank you!

to get starting point you adjust burrs to touch each other. when they touch each other you have finest grinding, after you hear metal voice you turn back 3 dots and grind only for 1 dose. you check it, if it goes to slow, you go one more back and clean gruinder, THAN you grind 1 dose more. 2 or 3 times and you will get perfect grinding.

SOURCE: Have Rancilio Rocky for about 3 months. Noticed

Hi There could be a piece broken around the chute where it comes out of the grinder and enters the grounds chamber. There is a rectangular opening in the plastic that can get broken causing the grounds to enter the machine.

Kitchenaid KUDP01FLSS0 won't start. Checked breaker and still nothing. what next?


Turn off the braker then , I would open the front lower electrical box most times on the right hand side near the floor , you have to remove the small lower cover first, open the small electrical box, you should see a black wire and a white wire and also a green , once you have expose the two wires and they aren't touching anything , turn on the power again , now take a tester set it to voilts , take the two wires from the tester and put one on the black and one on the white and see if you have power there, should be around 120 voilts
Before you pull this apart dose the door handel feel funny ? there are safty switches on the door handel thats why i was asking and this will also make the unit go dead , let me know what you find out

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.

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.

My dishwasher is dead...it stopped mid cycle and nothing happens when I push the buttons. I've already checked the circuit breaker and that is fine.


Will need the full model number.

If you are not getting any lights and displays and the circuit breaker is ok then most likely the internal thermal fuse is blown. This is usually located inside the control panel behind the switches.

The grinder stoped grinding coffee


many grinders have resetable termic fuse, some of them require manual reset, so you should search for termic fuse attached to body of motor(open the grinder from bottom) usualy they are round black termofuses with red reset button.
usualy this happenes when we have loud music and we dont hear that grinder is on and he works long time.

No hot water


Yes there is a small red breaker switch on the left side of the boiler tank. Unplug the unit first then remove the left side cover and just push down on the red breaker switch to reset it.
