Question about DeLonghi DCG39 Electric Blades Grinder

Overloaded grinder no longer turns after puff of smoke!

I mistakenly overloaded the coffee beans in the machine and tried grinding. It turned for a short while, then a small puff of smoke can from within, and it stopped grinding.
Any idea which component just failed?

The shear pin, which goes through the grinder blade base and the motor shaft has 'sheared' off the protect the motor from overload. The metal bits of the pin need to be removed from both the grinder part and the shaft, a new one inserted. It is a 'pressed fit', so it will be hard to remove.
After the bits are removed, a common 'roll pin' of the proper diameter should be a suitable replacement

Testimonial: "Thank you. I opened the bottom, but did not see any metal bits from the shear pin. The smoke really smelt "plasticky" when it stopped. "

If the problem is only just stuck then you should try to rutn the gringing adjustment to more gross grinding and first try to remove all remain coffee beans from grinder, with the use of avacuum cleaner try to clean everything from the grinder beans and grined coffee. Then try to make a coffee if it continue to be stuck turn for more gross coffee grinding clean with vacuum and try again is the grinder is only stuck then this will work if after all these the grinder does not turn then you will need to remove it and also you might need to replace it.

Trying to figure out which direction to turn the knob inside the coffee bean grinder to make my coffee weaker. Others have told me that the finer the grinds, the stronger the coffee. And the courser the...


HI
You can run more water through the same grind you are using now or you can trun the big knob in the bean hopper to a larger #. That will make the grind coarser. You can turn the knob to a larger # anytime but to turn it to a smaller # it has to be grinding or you will damage the grinder. If you have 2 knobs in the bean hopper, you can turn the small knob down towards the -(minus) and reduce the amount of coffee in the brew unit.

Hello. grinder won't grind


HI
Sounds like you have a blockage in you grind passage. Try removing the brew group. Then inside the machine where the brew unit was setting there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. This will be above where the brew unit was. From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it will drop coffee. This will clear an opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder. Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute.
Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. There are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the large knob to the largest number. You can turn the knob to a larger number any time but it has to be grinding to turn to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can turn the knob back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running.

My A-9 Coffee grinder no longer grinds coffee. Have cleaned it and checked it out and nothing. The motor runs but no grounds. Thanks for your help!


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

When i turn the machine on and try to grind up some coffee beans, the machine makes a sound like the motor is trying to grind. when i open up the grinder lid, i can see that the grinder is spinning but...


Generally, coffee beans are oily and form a goo in these machines.  You may get lucky by first unplugging the machine, getting some copper wire (#14 or #12) and poking around in there to loosen the crud up.  If this doesn't work, the unit will have to be disassembled and cleaned.  Messy!
