    You may have to split the case to access the gear box. The motor lays horizontally in the heag so I don't think it will take much to access the gear box at the end of the motor.. Good luck. Just be attentive to the brushes which should be at the rear.

Braun ksm2 blade slows and does not grind

Yes, unscrew the blade, inspect for any gummy material, hair or any other material that might cause it to slow down, remove it,, and replace the blade. If that doesn't solve the problem, you'll have to diss-assemble the grinder, check the carbon brushes to the motor, to see if they are very worn, replace if necessary and after a complete inspection of the motor, shaft, etc, re-assemble the machine. That should do the trick.

Where can I buy the plastic cap nut that protects the threads on the top of the blade shaft? Mine came off after 15years while grinding beans and is not useable any longer.

There is no plastic nut, it's all one piece of plastic. You need to replace the blade. If you Google KSM2 replacement blade, you'll see who's selling it. Or if you have small appliance repair shops in your community, they may have it. I just bought one a few days ago.

How many seconds of grind for standard drip grind

I've long ago lost the manual that came with my grinder (I actually don't remember if it even had one), but I don't think it listed grinding times. You just grind a few seconds and check, then grind a little more if it's still too coarse. Unlike a burr grinder which is adjustable, in a blade grinder the same grind time may result in different consistencies as you change beans. By now I've just learned how long to hold the button for the different beans I buy, and the first few times I try a new blend or varietal I have to adjust the time. I think you'll just need to experiment and then you'll know what works best for your tastes.

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.

Hi, The ground coffee beans don't make it to the basket. How to fix this? Thank you,

First, you should call Cuisinart (800-726-0190) and see if your product is still under warranty. They may fix it for free. I was told that certain beans sometimes won't grind up fine enough to get through the screen in the grinder because of the oil in the bean. So first thing you can try is to freeze the beans and then try grinding them. If you have still have the problem, you either have an issue with your grinder or the grinder motor. You can buy a replacement grinder on Cuisinart's website for about $20. If its not the grinder, and its the motor the only thing you can do is find a spare motor online somewhere (impossible to find since they don't make spares for the motors; the only way to get one is from someone who has taken apart the same model for the parts). Hope this helps.

I bought new green coffee beans recently, roasted it myself and wanted to use it in the machine but the grinder gets stuck and won't turn. The new beans are harder and smaller than the type I used to have....

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).

Braun Aromatic KMM10 stops grinding

Soulds like a thermal overload breaker? I know you should not have to do this . Use an outlet that is not shared with any other item, if one is available and if there is a selector for different grinds see if changing it to a finer grind will help. A couarse gring takes more bean ion each pass and it may be too much load on a single extended grinding. One would think the bigger the bin the better the motor. But try this and if you will, let me know. please

Blade replacemen braun grinder

Insert a small standard screwdriver in the slot in the center of the bottom. Turn the blade slowly until you feel the screwdriver catch in the slot. This holds the motor still so you can simply unscrew the blade counter-clockwise. Do the same to hold the motor from turning while you screw the new blade on clockwise.
