On the adjusting knob there are 2 set screws (outside of the center) and an adjustment screw (the one in the middle). First make sure the LARGE screws on the side of the SELECTOR plate are tight. Start with the selector on Turkish, with the grinder OFF loosen the set screws about one full turn each. Leaving the selector on Turkish turn the grinder on and gradually VERY SLOWLY turn the center screw clockwise. Eventually you will hear the burrs inside touching. After they touch back of the center screw about 1/8 of a turn. Tighten the SET SCREWS tight as they may allow the grinder to go out of adjustment if not tight. Test the grind with very little coffee and throw those grounds out. Then grind and brew! If these grinders are adjusted too fine you may have problems with the grinds not falling and may back up.

Coffee grinder only grinds to course no matter where grind adjuster is set


From what I've read about this grinder, you should be happy that it worked well as long as it did.

I say chuck it & buy a new one!!

When I press the brew button in lights up, I hear the pump going but no coffee???


Barring a serious mechanical problem, I'd say check water level, make sure you aren't using a turkish grind, and clean the machine by running white vinegar through it. 9 bar machines can't push thought a turkish grind very well. Calcium from tap water can clog the machine.

Whatever the setting is at the grind is always fine. What can I do to re-calibrate the grinder?


Grind Adjustment Tools required: Large blade and medium Phillips head screwdrivers In order to adjust the grind, follow these steps (Refer to figure A): 1. Remove all coffee from the hopper. 2. Set selector knob to the finest setting (Espresso or Turkish) depending on the model. 3. Loosen both knob retainer screws in selector knob one turn only. 4. While pressing the bag switch, located behind the spout, press the START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 810 model - Press the ON or START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 5. With the grinder still running, turn the adjusting screw in the center of the selector knob slowly to the right until a slight clicking noise is heard. Immediately turn the adjusting screw to the left one grind setting. This is the finest grind obtainable. 6. Tighten both of the knob retainer screws. Once the ESPRESSO grind has been set (Turkish for Model 835, 875, 890), the other grind settings will automatically set correctly. 7. Press the STOP or OFF button. IMPORTANT: Always be sure the grinding burrs are not touching while the machine is running on the ESPRESSO/TURKISH setting. Otherwise serious damage to the motor may result. dr_buckhead.png

Grind size cannot be ajusted


On the side of the machine is a rotary dial, this adjusts the grind size. The other dial adjuster only increases or decreases the volume not the grind size.

Ground coffee does not come out


Try this, unplug grinder, vac out all beans, then turn grinder towards fine until you cannot turn the big nut in the center of the burr chamber with your fingers. Now turn adjuster towards coarse until you can barely move the middle nut(you should hear and feel the burs touching) now if you look around the edges of the adjustment ring you will see notches, pick a spot any spot just remember where you started, then turn 14 notches towards coarse, your grind should be almost perfect.

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

How to calibrate my Bunn grinder.


It would be easier to pick up the manual in the commercial section under products from bunn.com, rather than me explaining it.
You have to loosen the nut on the adjustment wheel, then pull out slightly and turn towards coarse a few numbers, then push back in and turn grinder on and slowly turn toward fine, until the burrs slightly touch, you will hear a little metal on metal, at that point turn the grinder off, back off about slightly, then pull out adjuster and turn it to Turkish and tighten screw.

Why is the grind from my Breville BCG450XL in the finest position coming out like a drip grind with a fair amount of dust mixed in? I have an old Solis with exactly the same conical burrs which is grinding...


The Breville was designed to be used with Pressurized Portafilters, which most Home Espresso Machines have. These filters use a courser grind, so when it says Espresso on the Breville, it's really closer to Drip. The Turkish setting is barely fine enough for Espresso. There is a limiter on the Breville that prevents the user from going any finer, if you crack it open and remove the limiter, you can go as fine as the Solis. Becareful though, the burs can come so close to each other that they can chip and break.

Weak coffee shots


Need a decent grinder or a deft hand with a blade frinder, fresh espresso coffee beans and not too much water. Espresso grind is closer to turkish than drip. Much like Melitta grind. If needed a good coffee shop will grind it for you. A week suppply is preferable. If quantity of water can be adjusted, one shot is about 1&3/4 oz. a double shot, well x2=3.5 oz. You cannot get a six ounces espresso and still call it that; its dilluted or "allonge". A latte w/o milk. Let me know

Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to turn...you'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.
