Question about Starbucks Barista Burr Grinder

Non-working Starbuck's Barista burr grinder.

My guess is that I have blown the fuse in the device. I would like to dismantle it but don't know how to accomplish this. Any suggestions?

Remove bean hopper
Remove grounds hopper
Remove timer knob on the side
Turn the grinder upside down
There are 4 slits on the outside edge.
Insert a screw driver into the **** and pry gently outward with a
little downward pressure on the outside until the side slips a bit.
Repeat on all 4 slits and the shell should slide off.
There is a fuse on the side of the motor that will blow and stop the motor. It is a thermal fuse and should be replaced by a qualified tech.
The thermal fuse is to protect the motor its a 104C

Where is the fuse in a xr1220 mixer.

which fuse?? main fuse? output fuses?

if the main fuse has blown & the device simply won't power up, replacing it will merely result in another blown fuse - you need to take it to someone who can repair the units' power supply

output fuses blow when speaker wires are shorted, or speakers fail short - they're on the main circuit board, but seeing you're asking, i'd suggest you don't open the unit, but take it to someone who knows what they're doing

Krups gx6000 grinder advertises removable burr grinders and there are no instructions, but is that the best way to clean them?

the Krups instruction manual is useless in this matter but if you do have some mechanical insight this is not very hard. You will need some tools, e.g. an Allen wrench to remove the housing lid.
Anyway, you should not have to clean the grinders very often, perhaps once a year is enough. It depends on the quality of the coffee beans you use; the more 'oily' beans the more frequent cleaning is required.
I would not use water to clean it, rather a small stiff brush (e.g. an old tooth brush), but if that is not enough, water will have to be used.
If so, be sure to assemble the grinder only after the burr is completely dry.
Check the link to Home Barista where a very similar grinder is shown, that should give you an idea about what to expect during the cleaning process.
Good luck;

Heater fan fuse

David I dont have th schematics for your fuseblock layout for your vehicle but when I am having problems with a component in my vehicle I use a pair of pliers or a fuse puller and pull all of the fuses one at a time and check them for being blown. If I find a blown fuse I replace the one blown with the same size. If you are having problems with the fan motor I would suggest that you find where the wires hook up to the fan and check them for 12volts using a volt meter. If you have the voltage chances are that the motor in the fan is no good. Hope this helps

I have Barista grinder. I've had grinder for about 3-4 years and it stop moving. I unplugged cord, tried to turn the feeder and plugged in still not moving except timer is clicking. I wonder why it...

Hi It could be the timer switch but if you hear the timer move(whirring) it is probably OK. There is a thermal fuse on the motor that will go out and you just have to replace the thermal fuse. Its under the wrap on the side of the motor. Which grinder do you have?

I have an LG 42PX3RVA. The screen went blank, but there is sound. I don't know it there was a "pop", because I was not at home when it happened. I have disconnected the power and checked all...

Test the fuses using a fuse tester, if you don't have one then use a flashlight and some wires,
connect the light in series with the fuse and the batteryfor the light if it turns on the fuse is good if not then it is blown and should be replaced.

My Bernina Activa 240 won't turn on. I checked the outlets and they are fine. I even plugged it into different outlets hoping for something to work and it didn't. Can I take it apart and fix it...

Likely the problem is a blown fuse in the S-Print (power supply). You must have a grounding wrist strap when working with a Bernina Activa. They are extremely sensitive and can easily destroy the main circuit board if you don't use a wrist strap. You can get one at Radio Shack for less than $5. The power supply is the square 1/3 of the machine on the back on the handwheel side. You can remove the power supply by removing the long torx screw on the rear of the machine and tilting out enough to unplug the connector. Then dismantle the power supply until you can get to the fuse. Test the fuse with a continuity tester. If the fuse is blown, buy an exact fuse. Don not deviate. If the fuse is not blown, you may need a new power supply.

License plate light is out where do i look for a fuse or does it have a fuse or do i just change bulb

I don't know if that bulb has a dedicated fuse or shares one with the tail lamps (for example)
But if you remove the bulb, you can test it with a continuity meter.
If the bulb is NOK, replace it.
If it is OK, then there is possibly a bad connection in the socket or, as you suggest, blown fuse.
But I would expect a blown fuse also to have stopped other items working.

I took my Starbucks Barista Conical Burr Grinder apart to clean it, and now I cannot seem to get the top burr back on. This is an old model, purchased in 2000, and has been running great. I used to manage...

I think when you fix the front burr then you need to loose the middle screw. Then it will fix easily.
But don't run it right away.gently tighten the screw and tight until you feel some tightness .Then start the grinder and tighten or loose it according to your grinding specification
please rate me
