Mine had a piece of the top/bean lid broken off and lodged in the groove preventing the lid from going down far enough to release the safety switch which is on the right (as you look at the front) in the bottom of the groove. Note that there is another safety switch in the body of the grinder above where the ground coffee comes out that must be working as well.

The best solution I have was referred to me by a mate of mine who services commercial coffee machines.
Step 1. Remove the base of the grinder... this is actually the hardest aspect of this task... as there is one tamper-proofing screw... if you can't get the correct star-hex screw driver I recommend drilling the screw out.
Step 2. Once the base is off you will see the main shaft of the grinders motor. The shaft has a star washer set in behind hew nut, the end of the shaft has a slot cut into for a flat bladed screwdriver. Hold the nut with a pair of pliers & you can adjust the shaft positioning (& hence the burr attached to the motor) by about 3mm....
You will need to experiment to find the correct level of fineness as you require.
If you need further information send me an e-mail as I'd be happy to forward more detailed instructions.

This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.
Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)
Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.
Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.
You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.
Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.
Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(
If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!

My burr grinder also stops if the ground spout (where the coffee shoots out) is clogged. I use my grinder for an espresso machine so i always have the setting on the finest and so with the oils and the fine grind it clogs this spout pretty often. I"d check yours out too (ie remove the coffee ground bin and you can see the spout. If it is clogged uplug the machine and take a tooth pick and un clogg it. Don't jam the tooth pick in there to deep you don't want it to get shuved into the grinder wheels.

Unplug first. Unscrew the top. You need a long thin screw driver Phillips head is the best. Pock around the exit and entrance where the coffee beans are ground. Remember, the better the coffee and you will get more clumping of the beans. I works great. It is pain. The Chicago Clout man exits.
