Add a cup or so of raw rice to your coffee grinder and zap it until it is ground up into a fine powder, or repetitively zap it it will sharpen the blades and clean your coffee grinder. Wipe down with a damp cloth then dry with a dry cloth.

Re: grinder blades dull

I may be having the same problem. My coffee grinder has had more leftover beans in it more and more this week, until finally today, possibly a quarter teaspoon passed through to the filter basket and the remaining beans were still very much beans. My first assumption was the blades.

It got jammed with coffee beans, and then started smoking. I pried out the jammed beans, but now it won't start. Is it burned out?

Try manually turning the chopping blades. If they do not turn easily, you may have something stuck between the blades and the base. Otherwise, yes, you'll need to invest $10 in a new grinder.

Which one is better a coffee bean or ground coffee?

if coffee is prepared with fresh grinder bean then it gives ultimate taste to coofee with perfect aroma. Some top-range bean to cup models have integrated bean grinders to do this for you, or you can buy a separate grinder. If you grind beans yourself, you'll need to choose the extra-fine setting for espresso brewing and make sure you thoroughly clean and maintain your filters, to prevent them getting blocked.

Why does ground coffee not go thru shoot

If using Beans; it is set to fine and due to static it sticks - OR you have a blockage..

If you are putting ground coffee into a grinder; the static will be a bigger issue and in addition there is no weight from the beans to press the grinds into the burrs. A bean grinder is not ment to grind beans that have already been ground.

Get a better grinder and do not buy supermarket beans.

Sharpen KitchenAid A-9 burrs

You simply can not sharpen it.
The grinding is not based on actual cutting, but more like crushing. The "knives" are slightly conical pair and you adjust the grain size of the ground coffee by adjusting the space between the two parts.
If it is actually damaged you have to replace it, but if you have been grinding very "oily" beans there might be some left over stuck into the burrs. Then you need to clean it by taking the grinder apart and brush the knives with a stiff brush - do not use soap or water. A stiff toothbrush is just ideal for this.
All the best,

What do you do when the grinding blade will not come off for cleaning?

With the bean hopper on, turn the grinder upside down. Rotate the bean hopper to loosen any grounds that might be holding the burr holder. Now remove the bean hopper and try again to remove the holder. Only the outer burr comes off, this way.

Blade turns slowly and will not grind.

1. This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems unless you need a factory part for repair.
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.
