To make it finer you need to remove the top housing and look at the top of the grinder. Notice the white part at the top with an arm on it that engages with the lever from the adjustment knob. You need to remobe the white part from the top of the grinder and turn it back (anti clockwise) a couple of notches and re-engage it. It would pay to make a note of the original position, you cannot move too far from that.

I just disassembled and cleaned my Gaggia coffee grinder. When I turned it on to calibrate the burr plates it made a short grinding sound then stopped and now won't turn on


Take it apart again and check all the connections and switches, security shut-offs, and THE THERMAL SWITCH. A very small and cheap electronic device that takes and overload and will shut your system down, whatever it is. Very easy and quick to replace.

How to reset the grinder burrs?


I took the grinder apart and found to have to replace the two metal grinding tools (inside cone and outside ring.
The parts for it were quite cheap. Just get yourself a proper instruction how to do it and follow it religiously. There are marks left by Jura engineers to calibrate the grinder assembly. Changing the actual grinder bits inside does not alter these if put together in the same position. The calibration is essential for a decent taste. After 7 years I would recommend a full service anyway. This will not be cheap, but all seals get replaced or just the brewing unit and the machine will be physically cleaned inside. Only a clean machine will give a decent taste. And the usual cleaning and de-scaling you can do is not enough to maintain a squeaky clean machine over the period of a few 1000 cups of coffee.

Whatever the setting is at the grind is always fine. What can I do to re-calibrate the grinder?


Grind Adjustment Tools required: Large blade and medium Phillips head screwdrivers In order to adjust the grind, follow these steps (Refer to figure A): 1. Remove all coffee from the hopper. 2. Set selector knob to the finest setting (Espresso or Turkish) depending on the model. 3. Loosen both knob retainer screws in selector knob one turn only. 4. While pressing the bag switch, located behind the spout, press the START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 810 model - Press the ON or START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 5. With the grinder still running, turn the adjusting screw in the center of the selector knob slowly to the right until a slight clicking noise is heard. Immediately turn the adjusting screw to the left one grind setting. This is the finest grind obtainable. 6. Tighten both of the knob retainer screws. Once the ESPRESSO grind has been set (Turkish for Model 835, 875, 890), the other grind settings will automatically set correctly. 7. Press the STOP or OFF button. IMPORTANT: Always be sure the grinding burrs are not touching while the machine is running on the ESPRESSO/TURKISH setting. Otherwise serious damage to the motor may result. dr_buckhead.png

How to calibrate my Bunn grinder.


It would be easier to pick up the manual in the commercial section under products from bunn.com, rather than me explaining it.
You have to loosen the nut on the adjustment wheel, then pull out slightly and turn towards coarse a few numbers, then push back in and turn grinder on and slowly turn toward fine, until the burrs slightly touch, you will hear a little metal on metal, at that point turn the grinder off, back off about slightly, then pull out adjuster and turn it to Turkish and tighten screw.

Incanto sirius states grinder blocked. Took apart


I own a Saeco Incanto Deluxe. It employs the ceramic grinder that has worked flawlessly for 3-4 years. One day it stopped and "Grinder Blocked" appeared. I removed the entire grinder unit, cleaned it thoroughly and calibrated the grinder. This did not fix the problem. After many similar attempts, I found the entire grinder assembly (motor, grinder etc.) online for $149.00. Install of the new assembly took me five minutes and it works perfectly. Please note that the ceramic grinding blades (there are two round ones that must be aligned corrrectly) cost $40 a piece (same site where I found the entire assembly for $149). My suggestion--save yourself the agony and replace the assembly if cleaning and calibration fails.
