(I had the same problem) If you have the model I have, take a small screwdriver and remove screw located in center of bottom plate....remove plate and unwrap cord...reattach bottom and replace screw. I just leave the cord fully extended.
It should be easily move.I don't know how its stuck. BUT a Good advice.If you in future disassemble the grinder.Then,make sure you either count the screw rotation of unscrewing or just put paint mark on screw where it was previous fixed. Once you open grinder its very hard to put it back to work grinder like before. Thanks Please rate my work
Circuit protection in this grinder is done with a resettable fuse. Mine failed the first time I used it. Fortunately, it's relatively easy to replace.
Remove the plastic plate covering the bottom of the grinder. It is held in place by three screws.
Remove the power cord strain relief inside the grinder. It is held in place with two screws.
Remove the motor. It will only come about half way out of the enclosure.
My fuse was fastened to the motor with a copper tie, which needed to be loosened to access the fuse.
Remove the fuse by un-soldering one end from the motor and clipping the wire that it is crimped to on the other side. See attached photo of the fuse after it was removed.
Replace with a 15A fuse or just solder the end of the black wire directly on to the motor. If you don't replace the fuse, you should be careful not to run the grinder for prolonged periods of time because your may destroy the motor.
To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.
The last time I had to do this I went to a 'mom & pop' hardware store with the old brushes and looked thru the bins until I found a match. Seems like it was pretty straitforward to replace them, just a few screws and clips. While you have it open, gently clean out the grooves on the rotor with a dental pick or toothpick (that's the dust from your worn out brushes). That will help it run longer and stronger.
There are four slots in the bottom through which you can see the attachment clips. These clips are not mounted on the base but clip into the base. There is a special 4 prong tool that is used to depress these but if you don't have one, which you most certainly will not have, you need to use four small nails to open it up. Looking at them from the bottom, the clips look like a capital E with an extra horizontal leg. try to drive your nails in to the middle of the back of the E, that is on the flat side. After you have done this use a claw hammer to pry the bottom off by inserting the claws into the seam between the bottom and the top and twisting until something gives. You will probably get the bottom off without destroying more than one of the clips. No matter, you can tape or glue the ****** back together.
If power lose was your problem, remove the switch from its clip then test it to see if depressing the button causes the contact rod to touch both of the copper plates which are mounted on opposite sides of the switch, be careful while making this test - you have to have the grinder plugged in and you do not want to be touching any electrical contacts, the blade or the motor. Also beware of the torque from the motor causing you to drop the grinder. Also, beware of the torque from the motor causing you to drop the grinder in the unlikely event that it is working.
If depressing the switch doesn't cause the switch shaft to come in contact with both plates then get a pair of plyers and bend the copper plates down so that contact can be readily be made.
Retest to confirm the fix works then reassemble, using tape, glue or whatever and then -- it's coffee time!!
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.
