Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I inadvertently turned the knob counter-clockwise and froze the machine...what.can I do to un-freeze it, if anything?
Turn the knob back the other way, while the grinder is not running! This should free the burrs, if necessary then, dismantle, clean and replace.
If, when the upper burr is unlocked from the lower, the motor will still not run, you have done worse damage.

I had this, You have to dismantle and remove the grinding mechanism. It is probably jammed up with coffee, i used a very small knife to work round the edges till the mechanism was free and i could take it out.
I found the actual cause of the issue was not cleaning the coffee grinder properly, a bean had been left on the dispenser hole. Its really hard to see when this happens.
If the coffee grinders refuses to work after, ehter you have blown the fuse ( the 1amp one actually inside the machine, under the base plate) or you have a blown motor.

Tips for a great answer:
1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.
2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.
3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.
4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.
5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.
6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.
7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.
8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.
9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.
10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.
11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.
12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.
