Open Question

Hopper won't seat

I left house with housesitter and when I got back, the hopper was no longer able to seat in the grinder. The top burr, which I recall just lifting out in the past, now has to have the tabs squeezed. What is the correct position? How do I put this back together right?

I removed the bean hopper on the burr grinder to clean it, then screwed it back in and now it doens't work at all.


There's a safe-switch on the hopper. Make sure you screw it down right (not crooked) and it should click as you screw down when you get down to the last turns...

How do I clean the inside of the coffee grinder kitchenaid model A-9


Instructions Things you need
  • Soapy water
  • Screwdriver
  • Burr cleaning brush
  • Damp cloth

1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.

2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.

3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.

4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.

5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.

6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.

7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.

8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.

9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.

10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.

11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.

12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.

What do you do when the grinding blade will not come off for cleaning?


Hi
With the bean hopper on, turn the grinder upside down. Rotate the bean hopper to loosen any grounds that might be holding the burr holder. Now remove the bean hopper and try again to remove the holder. Only the outer burr comes off, this way.

I am having problems putting the hopper back in the burr grinder

Sometimes my wife or I pull the hopper out before the grinder is totally stopped and then some coffe gets behind the hopper. Thre are a couple of small slots that hold the coffe and the hopper will not slide back all the way again...we then need to take a knife and clean everything out good before it will work again...

Cleaned the Solis Maestro grinder and re set it to a fine espresso setting but the grind is coming out very course. What should i do?


Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

Oily beans seem to have clogged our coffee grinder up. What can we do?


Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift it off. Remove the outer burr with the 2 wings and clean under the burr. Clean the opening going to the chute for ground coffee(inside where the burr was).
Install the outer burr. Install the bean hopper. Rotate the bean hopper to the French press grind (coarsest) and operate the grinder. This will clean the burrs and the passages. If it starts to clog, repeat the last part to clean the burrs and passage. It must be grinding to go to a finer setting, but you can go to a coarser setting any time. Another thing. Turn the grinder upside down (empty) and rotate the bean hopper back and forth to clean the threads of the adjusting burr..

I can't remember the simple key to disassembling the Solis Maestro for more thorough cleaning. I need to get beyond the top burr removal stage.


Hi
Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift the bean hopper out. Remove the outer burr with the wing-lets. Can go back in either way. Clean with air or vacuum out grounds. Use small brush to help clean grounds. Reinstall burr. Line up notches of the bean hopper with shell ( large tab in large slot, and small tab in small slot). Rotate bean hopper clockwise a small amount and test.

All of sudden my grinder plugs up. coffee settles in around the base of the burr and does not seem to fall into the grind bucket, so the machine still runs but grinding basically stops as no more more...


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Replacing hopper after cleaning


The hopper has two slots in the bottom that aligns with two black tabs in the base. Rotate the tab ring in the base counterclockwise and then install the hopper.

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.
