I am assuming you refer to the spinning of the motor, but not the grinding mechanism? Often times, the blade, grinder, or whatever does the actual work is on a shaft from the motor. There is a 'shear pin' through the blade, &tc which not only holds it on the shaft, but causes it to turn. If something jams the cutting part, the pin 'shears' off, to protect the motor from burning out. It sounds like that is what has happened to your grinder. The shear pin bits must be removed from the grinder and the motor shaft and a new one inserted. Usually, a common 'roll pin' will make a suitable substitute. Just make sure it is the proper diameter for a tight fit.
The motor shaft spins, but the blade, &tc does not turn.

My grinder is not grinding is it blocked?


if you hear it trying to grind, but is not, or hear it spinning and is not grinding, more than likely it is blocked, or so oily that bean will not drop. Coffee beans, have so much oils in them, that after a while it gets caked up, and beans either get jammed, or stuck. If you hear grinder low humming, then it is probably stuck or clogged, if it is on but hear like a spinning sound, beans are not dropping, because they are stuck because of oil build up. If you can get to the grinder, turn machine off, unplug, get all beans out, if turning up side down to do so, get clean dry terry cloth,and start wiping and cleaning, when you feel your done, spray a LITTLE, no much pam in there, refill and try again. As said early if it is a low humming, like motor turning but jammed, do not use until jam is fixed, you will burn up motor, then have more expensive fix. Let me know if this helped and solved problem. Mr Bean Man from Fixya

Makes funny noise when I try to grind coffee and no ground coffee comes down into the handle. Seems like something is stuck in the grinder.

If you can get to the grinder, turn machine off, unplug, get all beans out, take like a wooden chop stick and put it in area where beans go and move the chop stick around the gears. you like your reaming it out kind of. turn machine back on, try this procedure a few times.

I purchased a GE Coffee Grinder Model number 111338 54, but there wasn't an owner's manual with it, and the first time we plugged it in it doesn't work. We just wanted to make sure we were operating...


I'm on my second grinder of this model.......... in the past 2 months. The first stopped working so I just took it back and replaced it. The second time it quit working I removed the cup with the grinded coffee and noticed smoke wafting up from the unit. Both times it quick working I was grinding 12 cups of beans (12 cups of brewed coffee, not 12 cups of actual beans). The unit shouldn't have a setting to grind that much coffee if it burns the motor out, which is what happened.

It seems withthis model you have a 1 year or 4000 cups warranty with this.
If you are within this, then give them a call - here is the Manual if you don't have it -
MANUAL -

I suggest you start by removing the beans in the hopper and wiping around to remove oils.
Then refill with fresh dry beans.
Plug in and set up as normal
Set to brew a standard large cup - and adjust grinder to coarse setting while grinding.
Do not adjust with grinder quiet - it must be done while rotating.

Make at least 10 cups this way at the coarse setting.

I think what has happened is that damp beans (frozen or cold) have entered the unit and caused the coffee to gum up at the top of the burr.
This will just push fresh beans out of the way instead of starting to grind them.

If you use dry (light loast) beans, it doesn't seem to happen as much.

Just ake sure you refrigerate most of your stocks, but keep a small stock at room temperature in an airtight tin to prevent this kind of thing.

You can actually push down on the bean stack slightly with a wooden object while the grinder is running if nothing moves on the coarse setting to get things moving.

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).

Grinder starts up but wont grind..nothing happens. one week old


I think this might be because no beans have gone down into the mill. There is a definite difference in sound when it is actually grinding beans. Try emptying the beans out, set it to the coarsest setting, put the beans back in, shake the thing a bit then turn it on.

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!

How long should it take gaggia mdf to grind?


I'm not familiar with this exact model but the problem may be either packing in the unit...since it never worked...or that the beans have jammed the unit in such a way that none are feeding to the burr. Usually, there is a way to remove the top half of the burr after removing the beans. Brush out the area and reinstall. The instructions that came with the unit should be of value. By the way, on some of these units, if the cup isn't correctly placed, it may prevent the burr from receiving flow. Enjoy!
