The Breville was designed to be used with Pressurized Portafilters, which most Home Espresso Machines have. These filters use a courser grind, so when it says Espresso on the Breville, it's really closer to Drip. The Turkish setting is barely fine enough for Espresso. There is a limiter on the Breville that prevents the user from going any finer, if you crack it open and remove the limiter, you can go as fine as the Solis. Becareful though, the burs can come so close to each other that they can chip and break.

Yes, 1 is finest and 9 is coarsest.
From the manual: 8 - 9 Percolators 4.5 - 6 Espresso Machines - Steam System 3.5 - 5 Drip filter coffee makers 2.5 - 4 Espresso machines - pump system 1.5 - 2.5 Espresso machines - semi automatic pump system

SOURCE: I ground some nuts for
The problem is not the motor.Coffee grinders must only be used with coffee. Even the beans used must be of quality suitable for the grinder. Too oily blends will result in a jammed grinder, as happened after grinding the nuts.
The repair is done disassembling the grinder, cleaning mechanics and reassembling. Unless you have disassembled a similar appliance before (eg. a blender gear box), there is a good chance that the attempt of fixing the grinder will result in more problems.
Rather than disassembling, a good alternative for the user is calling the Breville number listed on the grinder manual, and discussing repair with the manufacturer.

im only guessing here but id assume that the space between the burrs is likely controlled with a spring or something which has probably broken leaving the burrs as far apart as possible, if you gut the machine you may just be able to fix it with no parts if its simply a spring thats come off, the only other possibility i can think of is that your burrs or whatever they connect to are broken somehow, but all these are only guesses as im not familiar with your machine, my motto is if its broken you may as well pull its guts out to see if you can fix it, youve nothing to lose and youd be surprised how often it works
