Question about Capresso 560 Infinity Conical Burr Grinder Black

Open Question

Capresso 565 burr coffee grinder only produces a very fine grounds, even when set to produce a coarse grind.

After about two months use the grinder burr stopped spinning when the motor was running. I took apart the grinder and discovered the ball barrings had fallen off the springs. After properly reassembling the grinder, the burr once again spun and successfully ground coffee beans. However, regardless of what coarseness setting, it now only produces a very fine grind. I want a coarse grind for my French press.

The bean container/hopper on my Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder is stuck and can no longer be rotated in either direction or removed from the body. Can anyone help me unseat it?


Grinders that are used daily, especially those in coffee shops will eventually wear out. The fine settings for espresso (or even finer for Turkish grind) will wear out the plates even faster. I've seen burrs needing replacement in 3-6 months for coffee shops. Burrs set on this fine position that do not grind or stop usually means a worn burr or gummed up plate. (especially with oily beans). Either problem requires the removal of the burr set and complete disassembly of the grinder. It sounds like your '1st' problem was corrected by permanently 'affixing' the burrs to a set position and now not able to remove them without causing more damage. I did the same to an old grinder I got from the swap meet. But alas, the plastic collar cracked completely and can't be repaired. well got 1 year's worth of use and it was cheap.
** Suggest checking with your vendor or MFR for service and/or replacement.

Why do I get lots of static electricity which causes ground coffee to spew all over the place


you are on the fine grind setting and the coffee dust is flying out? right!. change the setting to something a little more course, and empty the dust from the last grind.

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.

I took everything apart to give it a good cleaning and now all settings produce a very fine grind. Any thoughts?


I had the same problem with too fine a grind when I took mine completely apart to clean (including the lower burr). The solution I finally came around to was to further tighten the star-shaped screw which holds the lower burr assembly in place. I had originally just tightened it until the lower burr until the lower burr assembly started to turn with the screw, but that wasn't enough. So I held the assembly in place and tightened the screw further and I'm back to my previous grind coarseness/fineness.

The coarse grounds is definitely the problem. make sure your machines setting are near 5-8 depending on the beans you use.

You need to make 5 cups of coffee before you see the new grind size. Do not change the grind too often or you will not see what you are looking for.

If the coffee is still too coarse you may need to replace the grinder burrs. http://www.cerinicoffee.com/grinder-burrs-saeco-gaggia-asp.html

or you should take it to a service center.

Lets do this, remove the bean hopper, and make sure there are no beans in the burr chamber. Then looking down at the collar with the numbers back up screw if there is one on it. Now if memory serves me right clockwise is coarse and counter is fine. Look down in the burr chamber, notice the nut in the middle, turn it with your fingers that will move the bottom burr, if burr turns freely we will move on if not plug in grinder and let it grind out remaining beans. With beans gone unplug grinder, then turn collar towards fine until you cannot go no more, now try turning nut it will be hard if not impossible to move, turn collar towards coarse until you can barely move bottom burr with fingers, you will hear and feel the burrs touching, that will be our bottom setting. Now pick a spot on the grinder you can use the small notch in the middle, count out 16 notches towards coarse and turn collar to that point. Use the notches around the collar not the ones on the top next to the numbers. Your grind should be almost perfect, depending on blend and machine you might have to adjust 1 notch to the left or right after testing.

I would say that your grind adjustment ring is broken inside and needs to be replaced.

Hi
Oily beans (shiny) can some times stick together after grinding with a fine setting. Try opening the grinder setting to the very coarsest setting and see if it will clear the passage. If you have pushed the brew button an lot of times you may have packed the grounds in the passage which will have to cleaned manually.
Once you have the grinder working again, open it to the coarsest setting to clean the burrs. 1 time is enough. To turn the grind setting back down to your setting make sure that the grinder is running at that time. You can open to a coarse setting any time but it has to be running to finer.

Grind setting


This grinder is really pretty crappy, I have the same one. If you want anything less coarse, you will have to grind it multiple times. My Grandmother tried using this and it ended up spitting out a few half and whole beans even after grinding. The best you would end up getting would be a drip coffee grind.
