Question about Mazzer Coffee-grinder SUPER JOLLY Electric
I decided I should clean it. I unplugged it and unscrewed the ring clockwise, after unscrewing the screw part way and leaving it attached. It came apart great and I brushed away all traces of grounds and used a cloth to wipe some also. When I tried to screw the ring back onto the machine, it doesn't want to go on far enough before it just stops. I'm afraid to force it any more. I don't know what to guage it on.
Youmay have have cross threaded the grinder!!! Stop at once! Mazzer grinders have no detents!!! Mazzer grinders are reverse threaded. The way to put on a burr carrier (the thing you screw down) is to (in this case) screw it clockwise until it click down into the threads then screw it counter clockwise. It should feel smooth and silky!
Also the mazzer grinders have 4 sprincs that push up on the burr carrier. If I recall correctly you can push down on a collar sticking up from the center of the adjusting ring to neutralize the pressure of those springs.
If I had cross threaded a grinder I would first be a bit sad. Then I would lube the threads with a touch of mineral oil, bite the bulet and back the burr carrier off. If I dinged up the threads on the carrier I would clean them up with a metric thread file, If I dinged up the threads on the reciever I would have a machien shop clean them up with a metric thread rake. Try not to remove too much metal, though with the springs stabilizing the burr carrier agains the adjusting collar a mazzer cna take more abuse of this type than most

It should go through what is called a detent. At the end of the travel as you turn, it should click with some force. If that hasn't happened, that is what you must do. I have a different brand and it kinda messed me up the first time I did it! Try to do it quickly, it will move right on through. If it still fails to do what you expect, turn the unit over and tap it a few times on a newspaper covered surface. There may yet be more coffee bean husk in there.
