How to remove spray paint from iron?

I purchased a very cheap Coffee hand grinder. Someone had previously painted the wooden housing with a blue spray paint, and some of the paint got onto the iron grinding mechanism inside. I can unscrew the grinder from the box, and would like to know how I would get this off of the iron?

You can burn it off as well....WD 40 may leave a residue and effect the taste of the coffee if you intend to grind with it.If the part is removable, and is all irom you can burn off the paint. I would reccommend MEK and steel wool as well. MEK ( or Methyl Ethyl Ketone) is an agressive solvent available at hardware and paint stores. It leaves a slight residue but breaks up most paints well. Use a rough steel wool grade like single zero grade.

Try using WD-40 - no kidding! It works wonders for removing spray paint depending on the type and how long it's been on.

Ref: Mr. Coffee Burr Mill Hopper: How do I keep the housing of the grinder from filling with large amounts of ground coffee?

You need to clean it out every 3-4 days. I use a brush and pointed knife for the packed grounds. Mine works great now.

Why does Cuisinart grind and brew coffee not go into the pot but runs all over?

with a small brush to loosen any grinds on the machine walls and around blade, once it is loose you can tap it out of the grinder, you will find a small bristle paint brush or bottle brush works well.

I was trying to clean my coffee grinder and when I took the bottom off a clear plastic came out and I can't get it back in.

see the steps:God bless you
  • Unplug the coffee grinder and wipe out as much residue as possible with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 2 Plug in the grinder. Add a little dry, uncooked rice to the grinder and turn on the grinder. Grind the rice until the grinder no longer has an odor or until the rice is finely ground. Repeat this step if necessary.
  • 3 Unplug the grinder and remove the ground rice completely. Wipe again with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 4 Hand wash any removable lid to the coffee grinder with dishwashing liquid. Allow to air dry.
  • 5 Clean the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth or paper towel

    I have a Bunn G92T HD Dual Hopper Coffee Grinder, and when I put the basket underneath it and grind coffee, the grounds spray too far and get behind the filter in the basket. Is there a way to fix that?

    If you are using a plastic basket, try to get a metal one, that will help with the static and or the dechaffer springs need to be replaced on the grinder.

    I cannot move the screw to change the grind. How do I do this on a G9.

    It should be easily move.I don't know how its stuck.
    BUT a Good advice.If you in future disassemble the grinder.Then,make sure you either count the screw rotation of unscrewing or just put paint mark on screw where it was previous fixed.
    Once you open grinder its very hard to put it back to work grinder like before.

    Spring loaded ball bearings - does the ball bearing sit on top of the spring or below the spring??

    The ball bearing is a check valve. The ball should be in the input side of the water with the spring underneath.

    How can I clean my Gaggia burr coffee grinder?

    For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

    I suffered with a stuck grider unti for a long time and just solved the problem..... Remove the filter basket and through the front door look up twords the back left. You can see where the grinder unit sits. There is a slot area where you can stick a screw driver under the grinder unit and pry it up. Do this in a jiggling motion and make sure you are well under the grinding unit, doing so on the edge of the grinder unit underneath will not give you enough suface to work with, in fact you will just bend or crack the edge. Looking in from low on the front (kneeling on floor with unit on counter, worked for me) will let you locate where the screw driver or smal pry tool needs to go. Mine was stuck for a very long time and No amount of pulling or prying from the top would work, I made it pop out in a matter of seconds using this technique from the bottom! Good luck, I'm going to finish my cup of coffee now! :-) Steve
    a little cooking oil on the shaft before you insert the grinder will help, spray on pam works well and is easy to do...

    Does not turn on!

    With the top sensor- I found with mine the pin was missing that actuated the top cover switch in th fill area right side you'll see a small pin hole. All I did was remove the side cover and jump out the switch via solder connection. The side cover has (4) click locks on the bottom that hold it on then it slides up and off. I know its a safety switch but it was more of a pain than a help.
