Most plastic products contain enough carbon black to neutralise this problem. Obviously not with yours.

Try a camera accessory cleaning cloth - specifically anti-static.

Cleaning less often will also help, and maybe a quick brush out would result in less mess.

Natural fibres like cotton cloths or bristle brushes will also help.

Coffee naturally has oils that, if left on, will eliminate this problem anyway.

Grinder spins. Hopper is full of beans. Why is no ground coffee dispensed?


You will probably find that the grinder is bunged up with grounds. This can happen if there is a bit too much steam inside the housings. The grounds bind together and will not drop with gravity. Pull the grinder apart, clean it out then run it with the top housing off and see if you can observe any leaks/steam. There will be some steam, you are looking for excessive steam.

What do I do when coffee beans not getting to grinder


They cannot "not get to" the grinder, the hopper is mounted directly above the grinding teeth. The grinder is probably blocked and you will need to remover the housings and take out the grinder for cleaning and inspection. Most common cause of grinder blockage is dampness inside the housings from a leak somewhere inside the machine.

Why does ground coffee not go thru shoot


If using Beans; it is set to fine and due to static it sticks - OR you have a blockage..

If you are putting ground coffee into a grinder; the static will be a bigger issue and in addition there is no weight from the beans to press the grinds into the burrs. A bean grinder is not ment to grind beans that have already been ground.

Get a better grinder and do not buy supermarket beans.

You will need to pull the grinder apart & clean it out. Most likely cause of the grinder blocking up is a leak somewhere inside the machine dampening the grounds as they exit the grinder. They bind up, won't fall out and there is your blockage. You will need to find and fix the leak, there are many, many places for the leak to be, it's a job for a Krups Service Agent. I have outer housings with cutouts in them so I can run them and look inside at the same time to find those troublesome leaks.

Empty the grinder and see if it will run with no coffee bean in it. Some times debris will get caught in the grinder because it got mixed with the beans from the factory. If it runs your good to go. If not then the mother connection are not solid and it will run off and on at will.

Coffee doesn't fall in bag (bunnomatic G1 coffee grinder)


keep clicking the De-chaf lever on the right. This tamps down all the loose grounds. Static is common with coffee due to the low humidity of the grounds (even here in Hawaii) try attaching a small metal chain to the grinder case with a used coffee clip on the end of the chain to attach to the empty bag. This will help it 'ground' out the static to the case.

You need to open the machine which is easy see my other post on leaking krups xp7240. The grinder can be taken out by removing two torix screws. Probably the electical brushes are gone. Take the grinder engine to a repair shop where they replace them.
