Broken Handle on Coffee Grinder

Got one of these crazy expensive Gaggia coffee grinders as a pres (
and somehow I manage to break off the little plastic handle which dispenses the ground coffee from its holding area

Any ideas on how to fix this??
btw- I have already tried the usual superglue/crazy glue stuff and the plastic won't stick together.

Nice unit! Replace the part. Try

If you want to try to glue it first, get a product from 3 M. I think they call it super strength glue. Scrape off all traces of whatever you used before. Follow the instructions exactly.

I just disassembled and cleaned my Gaggia coffee grinder. When I turned it on to calibrate the burr plates it made a short grinding sound then stopped and now won't turn on

Take it apart again and check all the connections and switches, security shut-offs, and THE THERMAL SWITCH. A very small and cheap electronic device that takes and overload and will shut your system down, whatever it is. Very easy and quick to replace.

I have a Gaggia burr grinder, Brevetti Gaggia SA Model MDF, s/n 7262. The handle that you flick back and forth to let the grinds come out broke off inside the unit.fixable? 707=837-8916 Thanks Anne

Look inside the grinder, The lever is attach to a SPRING .
May be the lever is disconnected (unhooked) from the spring.


It cost you about $15-$30 for the parts.

How do you change the grind on a gaggia coffee grinder?

if it is everything in order you change the grind buy rolling the plastic container of coffee beans(container commands to upper burr holder. If it doesn't go easy than disassemble container and unscrew the upper burr holder, carefully when it comes out, you have some pins and springs from below. do not loose or displace them.

How can I clean my Gaggia burr coffee grinder?

For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

Source for replacement blade for CBG5 B&D Coffee Grinder

Unable to find any parts supplier who offered a replacement blade for the CBG5 SmartGrind Coffee grinder, the broken plastic center spindle was reconstructed around the attachment nut, and an epoxy cement was poured around the nut and over the center of the blade.
This solution has worked in testing the blade on the grinder, but how long it will hold up has not yet been determined.
