My Solis Maestro grinds but produces only about

My Solis Maestro Plus coffee grinder grinds but produces only about 1/4 the normal amount for a timer setting and the grounds are too fine (overground). I have cleaned it thoroughly and made sure the drop passage is clear. Is this indicative of worn-out burrs?

Hi
I would say that your grind adjustment ring is broken inside and needs to be replaced.

How to adjust new baratza maestro plus I had a solis maestro previously that, when dialed all the way up, did produce a grind fine enough for a good espresso, but this new machine does not. I have taken...


I, just adjusted the the solis 167; first remove the Bean container by turning counter clockwise and the pull straight up) then remove the timer dialer (time/quantity control), then remove the cover by lifting the locking tabs (2 slots each side) with a flat screw driver. Once you removed the cover. Pull straight up the the white ring with the metal cup. Now you see a dark ring which is clicked on the with unit. When you look under the ring you an see little holes all along the white unit (that's important because you need to mark your old position). After marking the thr ring on the white unit, pull off the the dark ring by slowly pulling the ring outwards just on 2 places on the ring where there an small hole in the ring (there are 4 holes). When you turn the ring you will see 2 nobs, now place back the ring with the nobs 2 places further(clockwise) than the old position. You have just adjusted the grinding control! Place back all parts in reversed order. To place back the Bean container you must be aware that there are 2 black nobs in the machine and 2(different sizes!) on the container, they must be placed in a cross.
I trust you will hav succes. Don't turn to far at once because you have now modified the machine and this could damage it! I will assume no responsibillity for damages! Masta NL

Cleaned the Solis Maestro grinder and re set it to a fine espresso setting but the grind is coming out very course. What should i do?


Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

Not fine enough grind


This model grinder won't do espresso. There is a DIY mod available online that involves disassembling the machine, and recalibrating the burrs to produce a finer grind. I did it on mine, it was definitely better, but it's not going to get you to the coveted 30 second pull for your espresso. Search on Starbucks Barista Grinder Mod. It is a great grinder otherwise, very reliable.

Water flow problem


Check the coffee chute to see if its clogged. It is easier to use a small amount of white rice to clean your grinder, about a teaspoon.

Clogged


The burrs need to kept clean otherwise it will create a lot of dust and jam it up. This is aggravated with oil coffee and flavored coffee. Thoroughly clean the burrs and chute.
