How do i change grinder setting while its running


I don't believe you can. There is a switch that turns off the grinder if you remove the lid to the bean hopper. The grinder adjustment is under that lid...so, unless you bypass the switch in the lid (which can be done) you cannot get access to the grinder adjustment.

Saeco Italia Grinder Cleaning Instructions



Removal
Step-1: Remove beans that are in the bean hopper without spilling them inside. (Use Vacuum).

Step-2: Remove the beans container by removing 3 phillips head screws. Remove the rubber gasket from below the hopper. At this stage the upper burr will be visible.

Step-3: Rotate counter-clockwise the outer ring of the grinder assembly (the ring has gears half way around), until the red mark is at the 9 o’clock position, looking at it from the front of the machine.

Step-4: Lift the upper burr by using the fins that are on top. Press lightly on the doser adjustment gear, to clear it from the dose adjustment gear.

Cleaning-
At this stage, the grinding chamber will be exposed. Clean out any crushed coffee in the grinder chamber and the burrs. Use Vacuum and cleaning brush.

To Re-Assemble

Step-1: With the red mark on the outer ring still at the 9 o’clock position, replace the upper burr back into the grinder. Make sure that the red line (on the upper burr) is at the 3 o’clock position. This position will align the other tabs as well. During re-installation, press slightly on the doser adjustment gear so the upper burr will clear it as it is placed back in.

Step-2: With the Upper burr in place, rotate the outer ring clockwise until it stops. The two red marks should be aligned at the 3 o’clock position underneath the doser adjustment gear.

Step-3: Replace the soft rubber gasket back on the upper burr. Use the fins to align it properly.

Step-4: Slide the doser adjustment gear toward the front of the machine until it stops.

Step-5: Before replacing the bean hopper, rotate the grinder adjustment wheel to Zero (0), and the doser adjustment wheel to Minus symbol (-). Place the bean hopper into position on the machine, slightly adjusting each adjustment wheel as you are placing it down in the machine. Once in place, fasten the bean container with the 3 screws. Test each adjustment wheel through the full range of motion. The grinder knob rotates from 0 to 18 and back, and doser knob from Minus (-) to Plus (+) and back.

Now position the grinder adjustment knob at Eight (8) and the doser adjustment knob to the halfway point between the Plus (+) and the Minus (-) marks. This will put the machine back to the factory setting.

When using for the first time after adjusting the grinder, it may take more than one grinding cycles to make the first cup 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

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

With the dial turned to "Turkish" I still get a very course grind. How to adjust/fix?


On the adjusting knob there are 2 set screws (outside of the center) and an adjustment screw (the one in the middle). First make sure the LARGE screws on the side of the SELECTOR plate are tight. Start with the selector on Turkish, with the grinder OFF loosen the set screws about one full turn each. Leaving the selector on Turkish turn the grinder on and gradually VERY SLOWLY turn the center screw clockwise. Eventually you will hear the burrs inside touching. After they touch back of the center screw about 1/8 of a turn. Tighten the SET SCREWS tight as they may allow the grinder to go out of adjustment if not tight. Test the grind with very little coffee and throw those grounds out. Then grind and brew! If these grinders are adjusted too fine you may have problems with the grinds not falling and may back up.

Kitchen aid burr grinder adjustments


You are correct, the grider positions are locked internaly so the grinder will not go too fine since this can damage the blades and also too fine need more power from motor and also can block it by rottating normaly. However you ir open the grider you can overcome the lock and udjust so the grinder can grind more fine coffee. In order to be always at the safe side just move gradualy step by step until you find the perfect grinding and adjust so that will be the minimum plus one mor move for furure adjustment if you need.
Just for reference the corect grinding is for 7 to 7.5 gr of coffee the running time of the coffee from your machine should be 25 sec for 25 cc of coffee aprox.
Good luck.

How do I adjust the grinder to make the coffee grind finer? ie. the coffee is pouring way too fast and giving no crema.


Depending on the model and make on the grinder you just have to turn the adjustment collar clockwise for finer, that is the case with most grinders.

Grinder setting jammed won't turn


HI
When making adjustments to any grinder it should be grinding at the time. Rotate the adjustment setting to a larger number, say 10 an try again. Then if it starts, turn it down to the number you want.

Where to read the settings of the grinder?


If you cannot find a small arrow anywhere on the front of the grinder, just below the adjustment ring then, get a marker and pick a spot. That will be your reference point and adjust your grind from there.

Adjusting tamping pressure on a la marzocco swift grinder


It is possible that the burrs on the grinder need to be replaced. However if that was already done and you are still having the problem, the adjustment for the coffee amount is behind the tall rectangular box on the grinder. Remove box (4)screws and on the left side there is a microswitch this affects the level of coffee.
