Question about Rancilio (RAROCKYND) Grinder
I just got a rocky second hand with my new silvia. The grinder is great but im not noticing any difference between any of the settings. Went to make some course for presspot and it looked the same as the grind setting for the espresso. Also the little button on top seems loose, could that be the problem? Is it possible to fix this myself?
The little button on the top locks the grind to the set position. If it is falling down and not engaging the collar, the collar will turn and rest the grind to a very fine setting. If this is happening, you have to clear the hole that it sits in. Easier said than done, but not too difficult.
First, remove the bean hopper. Then carefully unscrew the collar all the way out. You will see the grinding burrs here. This is where you can change them if needed - not our problem now. Lift out the button out, and there should be a spring too. The hole frequently gets packed with coffee grounds. You can use a drill bit - by hand - or a philips screwdriver (takes longer) to take the grounds out of the hole. Replace spring and button, working it up and down to ensure proper movement. Clean the threads of the collar with a brush and carefully screw back together. This step is important! You could ruin the grinder if the collar is not straight!
When you get it screwed in most of the way, start the grinder. Slowly screw it in until you hear a "zing" when the burrs touch. Stop and back off another 1/4 turn. This should be the espresso setting and the button should come up and lock the collar in place.
