It's probably best to disassemble it and clean it up inside, especially if it's never been cleaned inside before.

Won't turn on :(


It sounds like you know nothing about elecrical stuff so safety first, take it to a repair shop. If you have no experience with this sort work you can easily kill yourself or burn your house down; poor electrical work causes many house fires, so take it to the repair shop

Ring the supplier it may be a common problem or an easy fix. If no luck there take it to a repairman, preferably at a Bodum Bistro repair shop.

If the switch is unavailable, they may be able remove it and see if another switch can be substituted or added.
The worst case would be short switch out and the grinder will be on all the time now and you can turn it on and off at the wall socket or fit an in line switch to the power cord.

Ask for an estimate as it may be cheaper or at least more practical to replace it.

If you try to do it yourself you may electrocute yourself or burn your house down, so do some overtime and use the money to pay for an expert repairer or a new one.

96 Suburban has no power to the starter switch & other electrical problems


You may need a shop to look at it, or get a used shop manual from Ebay to get the necessary wiring diagrams. The problems could be related, such as the key switch or the main wiring harness.

Need an on/off switch for a buffalo bench grinder model B-6CB 1/2 hp. 41/2 amp. serial #775713


I had the same problem with a Northern Tools bench grinder. These are made in China and parts are hard to come by. I had enough room after removing the old broken on/off switch to install a single pole 15 amp light switch like you use in your home. I simply installed it horizontally and then put the switch cover on. It works perfectly. If you do not have enough room then look for any 15 amp or larger switch that will fit in the housing. Any on/off switch will work. You could even mount the switch on the bench in a switch housing and run the wires from the grinder to the switch and back if need be. Just be safe and make sure there are no exposed wires. As a last resort you could remove the switch connect the wires, eliminating the switch and use a plug in wall switch such as this. 4147a14.png

The on/off button comes off consequently machine isn't working


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

I push the grind button and nothing happens. Nothing appears to be broken that I can see. I have removed and replaced the ground coffee bin.


If you have an air compressor... use it. The fine dust can get in to the safety switch mechanism and create an insulation to the switch that prohibits current flow. If you DON'T have an air compressor (or cans of compressed air available at office supply stores), clean it as best you can with an old tooth brush and blowing really hard, then use a vacuum.

Burr grinder GVX212


I had the same problem, took it all apart, separated the two halves, and looked into the guts of the machine, not an easy task. Fiddled with this and that, and looked at the back of the switch mechanism, and heard it making a 'click' when depressed, so put it all back together, to no avail...It turns out the grinder needs to have two limit switches engaged, one between the lid of the ground coffee hopper and the underside of the grinder hopper housing, and the other between the grinder lid and the base of the unit. This last limit switch was my problem, it seems the lid wasn't making contact with the limit switch, so the unit didn't run. I cleaned out the narrow gap that the grinder lid sits within, pressed the lid down until I heard a small 'click' , pressed the on switch, and presto! it works. You can see this very tiny switch if you take off the grinder lid, and look in the narrow gap it sits in at a position of about three o'clock ( the back of the machine when viewed from the top being 12 o'clock. Hope this helps anyone else who can't find their receipt within the one year warranty period. This is the best burr grinder I've found for the money, and I'm glad mine's still o.k.
