Question about Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr Grinder
I believe my coffee grinder overheated. Grinding slowed to a growl and then stopped completely. Grinder body felt hot
Can I replace/reset the thermal fuse myself? What is the best way to open the grinder to check the fuse?
Open the grinder by removing both knobs.
The front knob is held in place by friction. Use two flat head screwdrivers to pry it off.
The side knob is held in by tabs you have to push. Pry forward to expose the tab, and use another screwdriver to press the tab, and use the other screwdriver to press the tab on the other side.
Now look at the bottom of the grinder. There are four tabs on the outer shell, use screwdriver s to pry the tabs to separate the bottom of the grinder from the shell, and pull off the shell. Your fuse should be attached to the motor wiring coil.

My grinder stopped suddenly. Open the cover(s) by prying at the cracks with a butter knife or flat head screw driver.
The thermal fuse was good in my case, as were the interlock switches.
The circuit board was burnt around a large power resistor but I could figure out which component was bad. I simply cut out the timer control completely. One of the black motor wires now connects to the red wire from the bottom interlock switch and the other black wire connects to the blue AC power wire. I may put in a button switch but it works great by using the lid interlock as an on/off switch.

Your solution worked great.
My Krups grinder also stopped working all of a sudden. It wasn't the safety switches or the on/off button. Seemed to be something with the timer. When I switched on the grinder it worked for about 1 second and switched off again.
I removed the whole the timer mechanism.
One of the black motor wires now connects to the red wire from the bottom interlock switch and the other black wire connects to the blue AC power wire. The lid interlock now functions as on/off switch.
Thanks Rleyden for your suggestion.

The problem I had with this grinder is that it would not come on at all. Nothing. No blue light or anything. I took it apart following handhyranju instructions above. It turned out the safety switch for the bean reservoir hand fallen out of it's position. The plastic clip that holds the switch in was cracked and would not longer stay in place. It is a thin plastic clip held in place with two screws. We had this grinder for about 14 months before it broke. (Krups, if your listening, I expect better from you!) Anyway. I put the clip back the best I could and put several layers of duck tape over it as a quick fix. (Wife wanted coffee the next morning!) In hind sight I think fashioning a small "L" bracket out of a thick plastic, putting a hole in one end of the "L" bracket and screwing that over the broken clip would be a stronger fix.
