SOURCE: Coffee beans will not grind
If the grinder is blocked try changing the grinder setting up to the coarsest setting (I think it is numbered 16 on this model) and then vacuum or fill with beans and push them through. Be sure that any damp coffee has gone as you don't want the grinder blades to be left wet.
Never freeze or refrigerate your coffee beans as the condensation from doing this can also block your grinder. Also never use coffees that have been flavoured during the roasting process as they are often too sticky or oily and will block your grinder. These coffees should be ground using a grinder that can be easily pulled apart for cleaning...which is not the case in the Saeco automatic machines.
After you have finished clearing your grinder you will want to turn it back down to a finer setting ( a setting of 6 or 7 works well on this model) however you should only turn the grinder setting finer while the machine is actaully grinding. Otherwise you may find the coffee beans jam between the blades.
If you are unable to clear the blockage it might need to go to a technician.

My CCM grinder eventually stopped working altogether and I had to throw it away. Amazon comments says this is common. But while my grinder was working, it gave the same symptoms. This problem was caused by beans getting jammed and the outlet from the burr wheel being clogged. If that's the problem, cleaning it out is simple.

if you are handy the switch needs to be replaced. Soldering may be rquired and there is very little wire to pull. You can get a rocker switch at radio shack plus you need a triangular driver bit for base screws, It's really a poor design on a good grinder. You actually NOT have a switch and just hard wire it. I fixed mine for 3 bucks and an hours time
