Cleaning grinding blades

I followed the manual directions for removing the grinder blades. When I took the grinder to the wastebasket to turn it upside down to shake out any remaining coffee grounds, a large spring fell into the basket. For the life of me I cannot figure out where that spring came from. The manual makes no mention of it.

Mazzers have 3 springs in grinder body, each one support for upper burr holder. check for them , if it is not the case than consider that the spring could come with coffee. often we see stones and metal parts geting between burrs.
clean it again and look good for 3 springs , if they are in their place, close the burrs to finest than go back for half of circle and grind coffee.

My Rancilio Rocky Burr coffee grinder w/doser is not grinding the beans they simply remain in the hopper


It is most likely that something is blocking the pathway to the grinder. As the Rocky is a direct drive grinder there is no gear that could be broken.
Try to remove the beans from the hopper and inspect the pathway, move the beans that might be under the 'disk'. If that is not working you might have to open the grinder;
  • remove all coffee beans
  • unscrew the three screws in the bottom of the hopper
  • remove the hopper
Now you can see the grinder wheel and tell if it is turning normally.
This might be a good opportunity to give the grinder a thorough cleaning.
Do not soak it in water, just a stiff small brush (e.g. a toothbrush) is the best tool. And perhaps accompanied by a vacuum cleaner :)
If you have been using very 'oily' beans for a long time they might have clogged the grinding wheels.

Good luck,
Villi

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

    My Cuisinart CCM-16PC suddenly decided not to burr/grind coffee. It doesn't turn on. Electrical recepticle is hot and the device is plugged in. I've cleaned all of the connections/buttons/grooves so...


    Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave

    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

    I just want to know how to clean it after use - it is a coffee grinder, SmartGrind


    How to Clean SmartGrind Blade Coffee Grinder - White

    1. Always unplug the unit before cleaning. Wash the lid in warm, soapy water - not in a dishwasher.

    Wipe the grinding bowl, base, and other parts with a slightly damp cloth or sponge. Take special care

    around the blades; they are sharp! Dry parts thoroughly. Do not immerse grinding bowl, base or plug

    in liquid or under running water.

    2. Never use harsh detergents or abrasive cleansers or scouring pads to clean any

    part.

    3. To remove residue or aromas left behind by nuts, grind one tablespoon of baking

    soda in the bowl then wipe thoroughly.
    4. Use the built-in cord wrap on the underside of the unit to store the cord

    My cuisinart cbm-18 does not grind at below a 10 setting?


    Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

    I'm guessing the problem is that the grinders blades, or the parts that do the grinding have become somewhat dull, (opposite from Sharp.) and no longer can get to the beans like it used to.

    Cleaning the machine properly might improve its performance.


    CLEANING/MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Be sure plug has been removed from outlet.

    2. Beans can be removed from the hopper by lifting off the lid and pouring excess beans out. Hold down the Manual button to cleanout any remaining beans.

    3. The bean hopper, bean hopper lid, grind chamber, and grind chamber lid can be washed by hand with hot, soapy water or placed in the top shelf of a dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.

    a. Remove the bean hopper by rotating counter-clockwise bringing the selector past grind setting 18, align the arrows and lift up. Make sure the hopper is empty.

    b. Remove grind chamber by pulling toward you.


    4. Remove the burr grinder, once the bean hopper has been removed, by grasping the metal handle and lifting up. Use the brush to remove grinds or wash by hand. Replace the burr grinder onto the unit and rotate until the piece is fully inserted. Push handle down and replace hopper.

    NOTE: The hopper will not attach to the unit if the grinder has not been fully inserted.

    5. Wipe body of grinder with a damp cloth.

    6. Any other servicing or maintenance should be performed by an authorized service representative.

    What do you do when the grinding blade will not come off for cleaning?


    Hi
    With the bean hopper on, turn the grinder upside down. Rotate the bean hopper to loosen any grounds that might be holding the burr holder. Now remove the bean hopper and try again to remove the holder. Only the outer burr comes off, this way.

    Overloaded grinder no longer turns after puff of smoke!


    the shear pin, which goes through the grinder blade base and the motor shaft has 'sheared' off the protect the motor from overload. The metal bits of the pin need to be removed from both the grinder part and the shaft, a new one inserted. It is a 'pressed fit', so it will be hard to remove.
    After the bits are removed, a common 'roll pin' of the proper diameter should be a suitable replacement

    I CANNOT REMOVE THE GRIND BASKET TO CLEAN IT.


    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...
