Question about Bodum C-Mill 5679 Electric Blades Grinder
I had this same problem. This is fixable if you are willing. I repaired mine because I am stubborn and I bought mine used and had no warranty. I found that if you pull out the bottom of the coffee grinder you can access the inside motor assembly. * Note, that the bottom is designed to pull out a couple inches and it acts as an electric cord caddy. You must carefully pry it all the way out. It is a good idea to put a pencil mark for reference on the bottom of the coffee grinder that lines up with the bottom lid piece you are removing because you must install the bottom lid in the same orientation in which you removed it. There is a slot where the electric cord sits in as well so pay attention as you pull it out. It is likely you will just have to yank the plastic bottom cover out. This will probably snap an internal lock tab off the bottom cover, as did happen with mine, but it still sat securely enough back inside after the repair was complete for my liking. After you fix your blade you can easily just glue the bottom cover on if you damage your lock tabs and then just do with out the cord caddy feature.(thats for little old ladies and neat freaks any way) Now that you have the bottom cover removed, Look at the motor spindle, it is in the center of the bottom of the motor. There is a slot in it. Use a screwdriver in this slot to keep it from spinning while you grab the hard plastic cone that sits on top of the grinder blade. Try putting your pliers down flush to the very bottom of the grinder before you grip the blade assembly, as it will minimize any gouging of the plastic cone on the top of the blade assembly. There are no flats on this cone so you cant use a socket or nut driver. Spin thescrew-driver counter- clockwise until the blade comes off. The blade assembly is threaded on to the motor spindle and it comes off easily. I had to lay my grinder on the floor and kneel on it to free my hands to remove the blade. So it can be done alone. Now that you have the blade off you will see that the blade has worked itself free and is just floating around in the threaded cone. Now you can either contact Bodum and demand a new blade assembly or you can repair the blade assembly as well. I cut off the plastic cone and was left with a threaded insert, I was able to configure nuts and washers and reattached the blade without the plastic cone material. It may not be as prettty but it will never break again! Like I said I am stubborn......
