Re: Cleaning La Pavoni Burr Coffee Grinder

You'll need to remove the hopper and grind out all the beans. Then, with the lock tab depressed (if it has one), unscrew the grind adjusting collar out of the body. Once it's out, there are three screws (sometimes only two) holding each burr. Remove screws and separate the burrs. Clean away!
Be very careful putting it back together so that you don't cross-thread the collar into the body. Clean threads can help this.
Good luck!

How do I clean the inside of the coffee grinder kitchenaid model A-9

Instructions Things you need
  • Soapy water
  • Screwdriver
  • Burr cleaning brush
  • Damp cloth

1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.

2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.

3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.

4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.

5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.

6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.

7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.

8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.

9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.

10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.

11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.

12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.

Have a grinder and it is full of coffee and stuck. It seems the beans were more oily and now I am trying to figure out how to clean it out. Please help

  • Try to grind all the beans through.
  • Put some uncooked rice inside the hopper and grind it, it is very good at cleaning if you don't have Grindz. Get Grindz if you can to grind and clean the burrs.
  • Try to take the grinder apart and brush off and clean off the burrs by hand.

I lost the clear plastic top cover of my la Pavoni MEC-258. Where can I order this part? Believe it or not, this has been a very reliable, well working, if not somewhat messy little grinder. We've...

Is this the right one?

If not, I would go to and find the service center that is closest to you and call them on the replacement part.

Sorry, but there just doesn't seem to be any La Pavoni replacement parts carried by any of the American suppliers.

Beans do not feed anymore. I have to shake the grinder to get them to feed.

- it is happening from time to time at all brands, you need to:
  1. remove upper burr holder
  2. unscrew lower burr holder bolt
  3. go with bolt in some metal workshop and ask for one peace of drill above bolt to be attached
  4. explain the way of rotation of burrs to metal workshop master so he wont mistake to do the drill in opposite way
  5. come with drill attached bolt at home , clean good the grinder, assemble the drill attached bolt.
  6. assemble upper holder and the plastic bean container (inspect does the drill touch the tongue for closing the beans at bean container)

Burrs spin but no grinding

Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.

Oily beans seem to have clogged our coffee grinder up. What can we do?

Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift it off. Remove the outer burr with the 2 wings and clean under the burr. Clean the opening going to the chute for ground coffee(inside where the burr was).
Install the outer burr. Install the bean hopper. Rotate the bean hopper to the French press grind (coarsest) and operate the grinder. This will clean the burrs and the passages. If it starts to clog, repeat the last part to clean the burrs and passage. It must be grinding to go to a finer setting, but you can go to a coarser setting any time. Another thing. Turn the grinder upside down (empty) and rotate the bean hopper back and forth to clean the threads of the adjusting burr..

My Barista Burr Coffee Grinder suddenly grinds too fine.

If it is any consolation, mine just did the same thing, now takes too long to grind and it is way to fine dispite a thorough cleaning by disassembly.

La Pavoni Coffee Grinder PA Burr

usualy reserable termic fuses are attached to body of motor, or inside the winding wires of motor.
  1. if it is attached to motor body than you should reset yourself, usualy they are black, round colour with red reset button on center. it is enough to push that red button and you reset it.
  2. if it is in winding wires it should reset when motor temperature drops, if that is not the case than you should consult winding expert for that, in your region.
