For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

Easiest way without disassembling the burrs themselves:
1) remove the coffee bean hop by peeling the 2 rubber grommet
2) unscrew 2 small bolts underneath
3) the burr becomes partly visible
4) scrap the coffee/oil/gunk
5) use a handheld rocket air blaster, like those used in camera lenses, to blast into the burr and hard to reach places
6) remove bottom plate (4 screws), rotate the white round plate in the bottom to move the burr grinds. Repeater step 4) & 5)

I have never used anything harder than a nylon brush on my grinders and usually use a cheap acid brush available at your hardware store.
Some people do use rice, but I don't know if that might gum up a machine. Should you use converted rice (already steamed)?, brown, ? white? .
On a decent grinder, Gaggia MDF and up, I would use Grindz by Urnex.
Panko will have odd oils on it and perhaps unususal flavorings as well.

I just disassembled and cleaned my Gaggia coffee grinder. When I turned it on to calibrate the burr plates it made a short grinding sound then stopped and now won't turn on


Take it apart again and check all the connections and switches, security shut-offs, and THE THERMAL SWITCH. A very small and cheap electronic device that takes and overload and will shut your system down, whatever it is. Very easy and quick to replace.

Our Saeco Vienna Superautomatica sounds like it's grinding beans but keeps running until the red 'bean' light comes on and we have to shut the machine off. Any suggestions?


The grinder is timing out and stops if the beans do not enter the grinder. This happens because:
1- The grinder outlet is clogged and fresh beans cannot pass through the burrs.
2- The grind setting is too fine and helping clogging in the grinding chamber or the ground coffee outlet.
3- Operator may have been using dark roast oily beans. Like it or not, the dark roast oily beans do not make stronger espresso. Please stop using such beans in fully automatic espresso machines.
4- The grinder has already made over 2000 grinds and the burrs are blunted and not grinding beans as needed.
To solve this malfunction, clean the grinder. Make sure the grinder outlet to the doser is cleaned. This outlet passage is about 2 inches or more. To clean it, lay the machine on its back (water tank side) to allow better view of cleaning the doser and the passage of coffee from the grinder to the doser. Use the link below to find instructions for cleaning the grinder and replace the burrs.

How do you change the grind on a gaggia coffee grinder?


if it is everything in order you change the grind buy rolling the plastic container of coffee beans(container commands to upper burr holder. If it doesn't go easy than disassemble container and unscrew the upper burr holder, carefully when it comes out, you have some pins and springs from below. do not loose or displace them.

Grinder is slipping.


  1. take out bean container
  2. disassemble 3 philips screws and take plastic out
  3. rotate the knob to try to get out the upper holder of burr. if it does not rotate than disasemble the knob and the gears(plastic big one is attached to upper holder of grinder, the other is together with knob.
  4. tru to rotate it manualy, with help of extra srews puted in gear holder holes.
  5. when you get it out, carefuly clean it, look for metal parts and stones(wich sometime comes with coffee)
  1. turn on the grinder and attach gently one marker to lower burr during spining. after you stop grinder, look if it is perfect circle marked in burr. if it is not than marked side is higher. you should consider getting it ok by putting adhesive paper under lower burr and check it again.
good luck and carefuly.

Gaggia Syncrony does not get past the grind cycle


Water has probably been spilt in the beans area. The grinder needs cleaning out along with the chute

It could well be gummed up with years of coffee bean residue

Very simple to take apart. There are two screws holding the cannister. They are hidden under 5mm round rubber covers that you have to pry off. Then remove the two screws holding the plastic cover. Mark the position of the numbered dial relative to the brass burr assembly then remove it. Once exposed, you should be able to figure out why it is locked. Scrape away as much gunk as you can.
