SOURCE: Coffee grinder

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.

Thanks! It does not seem to be damp. I emptied the bean box and vaccum cleaned the grinder - I did not see any beans blocking the grinder. What would the next step be?

If you don't hear the grinder motor, I would say you have a disconnected grinder wire. These motors are DC so make sure that you connect it correctly or your grinder will run backwards.

SOURCE: cuisinart coffee grinder keeps clogging

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.

SOURCE: coffee grinder will not turn on

I recently had this same issue - it turned out that the lock switch no longer engaged because the spring came out of alignment after the unit was dropped. Chances are you have a similar issue. You can test this by using a small screwdriver to press down on the safely latch and then pressing the ON/OFF (careful of the blades!!). then you can easily fix it.

How to fix a bodum bistro electric coffee grinder that doesn't grind well

This can be caused by several things;
If it used to be good but is now faulty it is most likely that it just needs cleaning. If you are using beans that are 'oily' they can clog the grinder, you should anyway disassemble it and clean every year. Do not use soap and water, just brush it with a stiff brush (e.g. the stiffest type of toothbrush) and a vacuum cleaner.
There is also a possibility that something has got into the grinder along with the coffee beans that has damaged the grinding wheels; in that case you need to replace the wheels.

Am considering buying a Bodum Bistro grinder. Need to know if the burr grinder is conical and whether or not the inside cone can be removed for cleaning

It,s conical. It can be easely remowed for cleaning. Just take it easy so you know how to put the pieces back again. Its a very good priceworthy grinder. I still use mine after 15 years. But as it comes from the factory it will not grind fine enough for espresso. There are various methods and instructions on the internet how to tweak them to grind finer if you want that. Internally the mechanism looks very similar to the Solis and Dualit grinder. Since my grinder i quite old i dont know if my tweaks will work on more modern machines. But the basic construktion i still the same.
