I just bought a brand new unit and as recommended I unscrewed the top bean hopper and the coffee ground container-cleaned and wiped.After that I screwed back everything and tried to grind some beans.The timer was ticking away but the grinder just refused to start.I switched off the main and unscrewed the hopper and carefully screwed it back.Halfway through,I noticed and felt that you must balanced and screwed it with a smooth movement until the the whole piece is in place.The grinder just started without a hitch.This grinder has a protection circuit whereby if any part is not properly installed it will not start.

Ginder doesn't turn on.

Possibly the Safety Switch is not properly activated. Make sure device lid is in the correct position or the unit will not start.

Please vote if my information is helpful or not. Recommended. Thanks UAW Local 974.

My DeLonghi KG79 coffee grinder has stopped working after one grind. When the on button is pressed nothing happens. I tried changing the plugs fuse... any thoughts? cheers Kev

I should imagine one of the safety switches are not closed. The lid of the maker must be on and the filler has to have its cap on and inserted in the machine.

Delonghi DCG49 is suddenly quieter and will not release coffee

Had this problem with my burr grinder, coffee (or something else) is clogged between the burrs and the output chute, so new coffee can't feed in from above. You can try a few things:

1. Unplug and try to dislodge the blockage from underneath with a toothpick.
2. Disassemble and remove the blockage.
3. I've had luck with drizzling a little bit of cooking oil on to the burrs,letting it soak in a while, then running it, the clumped coffee came loose. It made a terrible mess in the bin, but I ran a couple cups of beans through and it cleaned up the oil.

Good luck~

Most Gaggia items use individual wiring pieces rather than specialized plugs. If so, you can make your own by getting some regular zip cord at the hardware store and stripping and tinning each section. If you have to put wiring in, be sure to make any kind of screw terminal tight. If the terminal uses a real screw that the wire goes around, be sure the wire goes clockwise around the screw.

Why do you think the wiring is degraded? These guys make good stuff and it is UL approved which means, among other things, that the wiring should last quite a while without degrading.
