The dresser wheel is applied strait onto the grinding wheel when you get ridges & valleys on the front of the grinding wheel to make it straight again.

Should the wheel move in stopoped position

It should rotate freely, but it should feel like it's turning gears on the inside of the grinder. It should NOT be floppy, and it should NOT spin as if it's not turning gears inside the grinder. It should run straight and true.

It's possible that you didn't remember to install the inner (backup) arbor washer before installing the wheel. If you do that, the wheel will spin completely freely on the arbor shaft. Find that washer and install it under the wheel.

It's also possible that you installed a very thin cutoff wheel but your grinder won't accept one, that it requires a full-thickness grinding wheel. Some grinders won't grip a very thin cutoff wheel correctly.

EA6935 krups powdered coffee inside grinder and coffee grounds noncompact

You will need to pull the grinder apart & clean it out. Most likely cause of the grinder blocking up is a leak somewhere inside the machine dampening the grounds as they exit the grinder. They bind up, won't fall out and there is your blockage. You will need to find and fix the leak, there are many, many places for the leak to be, it's a job for a Krups Service Agent. I have outer housings with cutouts in them so I can run them and look inside at the same time to find those troublesome leaks.

Both wheels have a noticeable wobble. Can this be corrected?

Yes, the wobble can be fixed. First, remove both wheels and check the shaft bearings/bushings for wear. Make certain the grinder is unplugged and mounted securely. Try moving the shafts up, down side to side; there should be little or no noticeable movement. If there is movement it is a major(time and money) problem. I'm not familiar with what the shafts ride on. It could be, ball bearings(the best-long lasting, least friction, most accurate, but expensive), sealed bearings(almost as good as ball bearings, with many of the same attributes) and bushings(least expensive to produce and fit and cause the most friction. If excessive up,down side to side movement is present a decision must be made as to how much money/time you want to invest. If the shaft exhibit little movement; check if the shaft is running true/straight. Turn the grinder by hand while observing the shaft for bends. If none are seen by eye use a magnetic base micrometer to check run out(deviation from straight). If a micrometer isn't available; bend a short length of wire(coat hanger works nicely) with a small hook on one end and then put a pointer end on the other. Put a screw thought the end with the hook to mount it to the base of the grinder. Then bend the pointed end so it just touches the shaft. Rotate the shaft and notice if the distance changes between the point of the wire and the grinder shaft. Repeat for the other side. A couple of thousands won't hurt. However, any more and the cost effectiveness of tearing the grinder apart straightening the shaft must be considered. The most common cause of grinding wheel wobble is the wheels becoming out of true and/or unbalanced. This is easily cured with a wheel dressiing tool. The tool grinds the wheels in place. By gringing the wheels on the grinder they balance the wheel, true the wheel to the shaft and clean it of imbeded soft materials, aluminum, wood and so forth.

Can't remove the blade from Milwaukee grinder. It seems very akward to hold the button down and turn the wrench at the same time. The bolt may be on too tight, as the wrench started to bend while trying to...

Lay it on its side and lean on it while you're holding the spindle lock button in- if you're right handed lay it on its right side with its back to you. Lay your elbow wherever you can on the handle once you get the button pushed and use your right hand for the wrench. If it's in the position I mention you'll push the wrench down to remove the wheel.

You can heat the center of the wheel, the metal part, to expand it a little.. makes it easier to get off sometimes.

The trick is to put the wheel on properly. Put a little NevrSeize on the spindle threads and screw the wheel on. Don't go picking up the grinder and hitting the switch because that will hammer that wheel on. Just screw it on and tighten fairly firmly.It only has to be tight enough to seat well on the spindle- it only turns one way, so as long as the wheel doesn't come off when it's coasting down it's tight enough.

Wear your safety glasses when grinding, them darn sparks are bad for your eyes.
