This grinder is really pretty crappy, I have the same one. If you want anything less coarse, you will have to grind it multiple times. My Grandmother tried using this and it ended up spitting out a few half and whole beans even after grinding. The best you would end up getting would be a drip coffee grind.

perhaps remove the hopper (top) and inspect to see if a buildup of very fine compacted grounds as accumulated. knock the stuff loose.

If you can adjust the bean hopper to the coarsest grind setting and try again. If that doesn't work, remove the grounds drawer and vacuum the inside top where the grounds drawer was. You have a blockage above the grounds drawer.
You can also rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise and lift it off. Remove the outer burr by lifting it out. Vacuum the grounds out from both sides( burr side and grounds drawer side) probe the opening to remove any packed grounds, then reassemble. The bean hopper has 2 tabs on the bottom. 1 large and 1 small. Make sure that they go in their respective place.
If you cannot rotate the bean hopper? Remove the beans and ground hopper. Turn the machine upside down and then gently rotate the bean hopper back and forth until it will rotate completely (270 degrees). This will shake out any grounds in the threads. Do not force it as you can break the tabs that rotate the burr adjustment.

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.
