Im first wondering why u took a good grinder apart ??? could it be that it was working only intermittently ?? if that is so , im betting the little spring is either the spring that pushes the start switch back up when u let go (otherwise it would run forever) or it might be a motor brush holder tension spring , that's most likely why its working only intermittently the brushes are worn down and need replaced , a neet hack 4 this is to use electric drill brushes ! I found they fit and can be sourced from a well stocked hardware store !!

Ref: Mr. Coffee Burr Mill Hopper: How do I keep the housing of the grinder from filling with large amounts of ground coffee?


You need to clean it out every 3-4 days. I use a brush and pointed knife for the packed grounds. Mine works great now.

My grinder does not grind anymore. The machine sounds normal but the beans shoot out basically "cracked" into chunks. I have cleaned the entire unit and even bought new beans. But no luck.....


im only guessing here but id assume that the space between the burrs is likely controlled with a spring or something which has probably broken leaving the burrs as far apart as possible, if you gut the machine you may just be able to fix it with no parts if its simply a spring thats come off, the only other possibility i can think of is that your burrs or whatever they connect to are broken somehow, but all these are only guesses as im not familiar with your machine, my motto is if its broken you may as well pull its guts out to see if you can fix it, youve nothing to lose and youd be surprised how often it works

I took the grinder apart and realized that there is no mark as to where set the initial burr setting. It does not seem to be that you screw it down as far as it will go. the adjuster spring simply gets...


simply you screw until you hear metal sound of burrs touching each other. Than:

Grinding setting is one simple operation but requires bit patience:

  1. Turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest grinding)
  2. From that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line
  3. Grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine (if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way.
  4. You test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation)
After setting measure the grounded coffee that comes out from dosser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of dosser

I received a new lower burr grinder part from SAECO for my machine but no instructions on how to replace it. I know how to clean and replace the removable grinder part that fits into this. Do you have...


Hi
If you only got the lower burr it won't work. They should be matching burrs.
If you don't do it right, you will damage the grinder. You need a #10 Torex bit.

Insert the bit into the screw in the middle of a very clean grinder. Turn clockwise to loosen. Once the screw is out, pull the burr out, but be careful. There are ball bearings and springs under the burr. Make sure that everything is clean before reassembly. There are 3 holes in the bottom of the grinder. The springs go into the holes first. Then the ball bearings set on top of the springs. Place the new lower burr on top of the springs. A washer and the corkscrew go in next. Insert the screw in and with the bit in place turn (with a little down force) clockwise until the screw drops into place, then turn counterclockwise. It should turn fairly easy. Once you start putting pressure on the springs, try to turn the corkscrew. There is a notch that it slips into in the bottom of the grinder. Once it locks into place keep turning the screw until you start to turn the burr. That should be tight enough. Now reassemble the top burr and adjust.

Spring loaded ball bearings - does the ball bearing sit on top of the spring or below the spring??


The ball bearing is a check valve. The ball should be in the input side of the water with the spring underneath.
input side ----->( O/////)-------> output side

The coffee comes out in little logs or clumps. The coffee is weak- no crema.


HI
There are 2 things that can cause this. Either the burrs are bad and need replacing or you grinder is out of adjustment and you need to turn to a finer grind. If you have taken it apart, you are not adjusted close enough so your burrs can't grind fine enough. Readjust the burrs closer together.

Cleaning grinding blades


mazzers have 3 springs in grinder body, each one support for upper burr holder. check for them , if it is not the case than consider that the spring could come with coffee. often we see stones and metal parts geting between burrs.
clean it again and look good for 3 springs , if they are in their place, close the burrs to finest than go back for half of circle and grind coffee.
