Hello Penny McEwan,

After two lifetimes in electronics... my highly sophisticated electronic background says ...

Get a clean paper sack.

Unplug you unit... and invert the MACHINE pouring the beans into the sack... While holding the machine in that position fetch it a good smack (one on the north side & another on it's south end).

Set the machine back down... like you mean it (good little bump to loosen any coffee bits)... pour the beans back into the hopper...

Plug the little beauty back in and
you should be ready to brew

Else ... get a clean paper sack... (blah blah... blah)
empty it ... smack it... vacuum it out (try again)

Take it to your repair shop!

As for me... after two life times: I still have all the toys...
all put away... nice & clean on the shelf...

I boil 12 cups in a 3 quart pot...shut off the fire and dump in the fresh ground beans let the froth settle (about 5 to 10 minutes)
and pour my first cups through an old fashion Melitta #6
(un-bleached) filter into a 10 cup Melina pot ...
or Chemex carafe

Better than a FRENCH PRESS... camp-fire style without
DRINKING the grounds...

Adjusting the flavor by varying my dark roast between
ITALIAN & FRENCH... with a half mix of PEETS
(Major Dickason's) whole bean... Yum...!!

Big, bold and just like a great big chewy CABERNET
Sauvignon... (CAN'T SEE THROUGH IT).

Never ever leave it on the heat...!
(use the microwave to reheat... or just try ice coffee).

Filter & all goes into the compost

Costco sized cups, bags & 55 gallon drums (of course)

Hope this helps!

I have small bean bags filled with Darice Bean Bag Fill. Can I wash them?

Darice is a type of plastic bead fill, so it "can" be washed, but because of how small the beads are and how many, it would take a very long time to fully dry, possibly a week or more depending on humidity. You cannot wash in a washing machine nor dry it in a dryer. Machine washing would ruin the seams of the beanbag and cause it to leak everywhere, or fall apart completely.

If or when it could be afforded, it is recomended to send the filler to be recycled, make sure none are left in the beanbags, and then you could wash the beanbags themselves in regular wash and refill with new beads.

Or, if you do not mind doing the work, you could empty the filler into plastic bags or buckets, then hand-wash them with a suitable strainer, in smaller, more managable sizes, where they can be stired around at intervals to speed drying, before puting back into the beanbags.

I need to refill my bean bag. What kind of product do I need to buy and how often do I need to refill my chair?

You first need to decide what kind of product you want to refill your bean bag chair with - virgin filling or reground filling. Virgin beans are denser, keeping a nice round shape. Since all of the individual beads are the same size, they shift around each other with ease when you are positioning your body in the chair. Reground (also known as recycled) are not as uniform as the virgin beads. They are not always the exact same size, meaning it may take an extra moment to get yourself situated comfortably. I prefer reground bean fillings for my chair because they are better for the environment and cheaper to buy.

There is not set amount of time that dictates how often you need to refill your bean bag chair. It largely depends on how often you sit in it. The average time is about one year.

Fill beans

the coffee beans are not entering in the grinder disks and since they rotate without coffee the machine understands that their is no beans. You need to clean the grinder disk and grinding coffee funel to bee sure their nothing blocking the coffee movements. Use a vaccum cleaner and try to clean everything in grinder and grinder exits. Try also the machine by regulating thegriding to more gross coffee and when it will start grinding normal then you can udjust step by step back to grinding position you have at the begeining.
