Re: grind

Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.

Re: grind

I have a 810 & 875. The 810 works flawless but the preused 875 bought off Ebay was not grinding fine enough or changing from course to turkish (finest) no matter where the grind dial setting was turned to. I completely dissassembled the burrs and cleaned it out completely. I figured out that the dial had been tampered with so I reset it by retightening the screws till it just barely moved the dial from one setting to another setting...this will make it tighten the burrs down further causing the burrs to grind finer. Be sure to download the manual and read it too as this may help you.

Saeco syntia ground coffee chute not working well

The grind on the coffee might be too coarse and instead of making espresso its coming out like drip coffee because the water is running through it too fast.

Cleaning burrs of oily residue

There are many ways to clean oily residue from your burrs. You can order a grinder cleaning tablet from online stores called Grinds by Urnex. Some people use white rice but if you don't get it all out you will have rice in your coffee. You can take them apart and clean them manually but if you don't reassemble it correctly you will not get a good grind. I think the easiest way is to get some cheap light roasted beans ( doesn't matter if they are old ) but never use shiny beans because shiny beans have lots of oil.
Set the grinder to a very coarse setting, on a Rocky 7 higher that you currently use. You can turn it to a larger # any time but it has to be grinding to turn it to a lower #. Pour a cup of cleaner (beans, or rice) into the bean hopper and turn the grinder on. Grind the whole hopper through the machine. If you use grinds just a couple of #'s higher is all you need. Once you have cleaned the burrs you will need to grind some of you beans to purg the cleaning debris for the burrs and chamber. When you see no more cleaning compound you can turn the hopper back to where it was leaving the motor run. Once you get it back test with your beans.

Ground coffee does not come out

Try this, unplug grinder, vac out all beans, then turn grinder towards fine until you cannot turn the big nut in the center of the burr chamber with your fingers. Now turn adjuster towards coarse until you can barely move the middle nut(you should hear and feel the burs touching) now if you look around the edges of the adjustment ring you will see notches, pick a spot any spot just remember where you started, then turn 14 notches towards coarse, your grind should be almost perfect.

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.

Does not grind evenly When I try to grid a coarse grind for french press coffee I get a lot of small grinds.

I was a little confused at first but where ir says coarse on the adjustment "wheel" is actually the fine setting. If you want coarse you need to turn it the opisite direction. If you look cloosely you will notice there is an arrow beside where it says coarse pointing to the right and beside where it says fine there is an arrow pointing left. It kind of makes no sense, but I guess since they've been making it for like 70 years they figure why fix it. I hope this helps, I had the same problem the first time I used mine, and the manual doesn't really mention it.

Parts and Grind Selection

The current Kitchenaid A9 burr grinder glass jar is interchangable with the original Hobart/Kitchenaid A9 glass jar; therefor, the gasket should also interchange - contact Kitchenaid customer service to order a gasket.

Setting the grind is accomplished by grasping the body of the ginder in one hand and the grind-selector ring (collar that the jar screws into) in the other. Hold the base tight and turn the selector ring clockwise for a finer grind, counterclockwise for coarser. Be careful not to completely unscrew the selector ring; if you are not sure how much adjustment is left, screw it all the way clockwise until it stops (finest grind); then, back it off, up to one full turn to make the grind coarser.

The selector ring has the words coarse, medium and fine cast into it; these are rough postition markers. There is a triangle cast into the body of the grinder, just above the brand name, that can be used to diral in a preferred level of grind. I use a medium-coarse grind for drip coffee makers; to do likewise, position the selector ring so that the triangle is pointing midway between the words coarse and medium.

I've been having the same problem. I would clean out the burrs and it would get clogged right away. But I found that at the top of the chute where the coffee comes out that there's a flap type device. Mine was clogged with coffee. When I unclogged it it would swing freely. That seems to have helped. You need to use a skewer or long toothpick to clean it and free it. Use a flashlight to see the flap. It looks like it has a weight attached to it and probably swings back and forth as the coffee is ground.

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. Check this out, it might help understand the problem:
