Question about Gaggia MDF Electric Burr Grinder

1 Answer

MDF very coarse grind

After 25 years of flawless operation my MDF started misbehaving. No matter how I turn the dial the result is the same - very coarse and uneven grind. No change in the motor sound though. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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?

Saeco Vienna Plus Home Espresso Machine Superautomatic - right now,we like the machine. However, we cannot seem to get it to brew a decent cup of espresso. The first half is good and then goes to way too...


Grinder is only turn to a smaller # when its grinding. You can turn to a larger # any time. There is a dial on the panel that controls how much water goes through the brew unit.
What do your grinds look like. If they are like sugar granules your Ok, but if they are very coarse you grinder has come apart and needs to be cleaned and snaped back together. If you look at the white cork screw in the center of the grinder it should be centered and not to one side.

Ground coffee does not come out


Try this, unplug grinder, vac out all beans, then turn grinder towards fine until you cannot turn the big nut in the center of the burr chamber with your fingers. Now turn adjuster towards coarse until you can barely move the middle nut(you should hear and feel the burs touching) now if you look around the edges of the adjustment ring you will see notches, pick a spot any spot just remember where you started, then turn 14 notches towards coarse, your grind should be almost perfect.

Does not grind evenly When I try to grid a coarse grind for french press coffee I get a lot of small grinds.


I was a little confused at first but where ir says coarse on the adjustment "wheel" is actually the fine setting. If you want coarse you need to turn it the opisite direction. If you look cloosely you will notice there is an arrow beside where it says coarse pointing to the right and beside where it says fine there is an arrow pointing left. It kind of makes no sense, but I guess since they've been making it for like 70 years they figure why fix it. I hope this helps, I had the same problem the first time I used mine, and the manual doesn't really mention it.

Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse


Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.

Saeco De Luxe Coarse Grind


You could have knocked it out of its shaft or worse, Cracked the shaft itself.

Settings could be off too, It fairly common. Recheck the chamber, and make sure the plastic casing isn't cracked and the grinder doesn't wabble at all. It should be fairly firm.

If it isn't firm, bad news, cracked shaft.

Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to turn...you'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.

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.
