This happened to mine this morning. I was so frustrated because the reason I bought this was because of the removeable bowl. My bf got it off but he broke off a piece of plastic (he is pretty sure the piece of plastic was on the bowl part).

I put it back on and it kind still worked- I think I will just need to get a replacement bowl now - but it was hard to get off again.

When I tried to get it off the second time, I moved it into the "unlocked" postion and then manipulated the the blade part while pulling and it came off - but of course mine was broken already.

There appears to be two areas where it locks - on the base and a part on the bowl. I think somehow they get out of synch.

The problem is not with the base I think but with the bowl.

Although, now that it is "sorta" broken - I can't remember what parts were supposed to be loose before and which ones were not. The blade part of the bowl is very loose now. My boyfriend is pretty sure the plastic broke off the bowl part so I am going to get another bowl. I hope that solves my problem!

Try using a bottle brush and cleaning out the residue from coffee grinding. Coffee grinds build up because of the oils in the beans. I clean mine twice a week and it works great.

The grinder stoped grinding coffee


many grinders have resetable termic fuse, some of them require manual reset, so you should search for termic fuse attached to body of motor(open the grinder from bottom) usualy they are round black termofuses with red reset button.
usualy this happenes when we have loud music and we dont hear that grinder is on and he works long time.

KitchenAid coffee grinder


Apparently we must be the only two people on the planet with this problem. I have a Breville burr grinder that I received as a gift, and it magnetized the grounds directly out of the box. I am considering opening the casing up and grounding the motor through the plug. I would need to replace the 2-prong plug with a 3-prong plug. The casing is made of plastic and stainless steel, so they wouldn't need to ground the chassis, but if the electric current running through the motor or the burrs (attached to the motor) are the root cause then I would think that grounding the metal chassis of the motor through the plug/outlet should do the trick.
