How long should it take gaggia mdf to grind?

Hi - i just bought a MDF and tried it this morning - i filled it with beans, switched on at position 2 - nothing happened except the motor came on. no grounds came out. i then switched motor off and on again and moved the setting to 5 with the motor running. left it about 15 seconds and there was nothing at all in my dosing collection tub. Any help much appreciated.

Re: how long should it take gaggia mdf to grind?

I'm not familiar with this exact model but the problem may be either packing in the unit...since it never worked...or that the beans have jammed the unit in such a way that none are feeding to the burr. Usually, there is a way to remove the top half of the burr after removing the beans. Brush out the area and reinstall. The instructions that came with the unit should be of value. By the way, on some of these units, if the cup isn't correctly placed, it may prevent the burr from receiving flow. Enjoy!

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.

MDF very coarse grind

Several possibilities loom:

1. Same burrs for 25 years? don't be cheap replace them!

2. Dirt in the threads of the burr carrier, or the threads that recieve it?

Re setting

There is no way to do this. One controls flow by the pressure of the tamp, and fineness of the grind. 2.25 ounces or espresso in 20 seconds from 14 grams of coffee.

It could well be gummed up with years of coffee bean residue

Very simple to take apart. There are two screws holding the cannister. They are hidden under 5mm round rubber covers that you have to pry off. Then remove the two screws holding the plastic cover. Mark the position of the numbered dial relative to the brass burr assembly then remove it. Once exposed, you should be able to figure out why it is locked. Scrape away as much gunk as you can.
