SOURCE: grind size too big even when it is set to finest

Have you used it for awhile already? You might want to try replacing the burrs ($20) if they've been used for a few years.

SOURCE: Zassenhaus knee coffee mill grinds too coarsely

I have a Zass and sometimes have a problem with it self adjusting, but when I do need to adjust it, I find that I have give it a good tap on the top to make sure it adjusts. So, just turn the knob counter clockwise as far as it will go, then give it a good knock on the top and bottom and try again. My mill offers the full grinding range, from a fine powder to large chunks.

SOURCE: cuisinart burr coffee grinder

The best solution I have was referred to me by a mate of mine who services commercial coffee machines.

Step 1. Remove the base of the grinder... this is actually the hardest aspect of this task... as there is one tamper-proofing screw... if you can't get the correct star-hex screw driver I recommend drilling the screw out.
Step 2. Once the base is off you will see the main shaft of the grinders motor. The shaft has a star washer set in behind hew nut, the end of the shaft has a slot cut into for a flat bladed screwdriver. Hold the nut with a pair of pliers & you can adjust the shaft positioning (& hence the burr attached to the motor) by about 3mm....

You will need to experiment to find the correct level of fineness as you require.

If you need further information send me an e-mail as I'd be happy to forward more detailed instructions.

Good Luck.

Cheers.......

Bean hopper is full, machine starts to grind the coffee but right before it starts to pull the shot, it stops & says "add beans to hopper".


the add beans to hopper signal most likely is triggered by the machine not sensing enough load put on the grinder (hence it thinks its out of beans) , this most likely is set by the grind (fine/course ) id say the grind is set to an improper size and the automatic sensor is picking up on that
another thing is the coffee / if its way too moist and not dry enough then its also going to trip the sensor as well

Tip

Espresso/coffee not coming out


If you are having a problem with your espresso/coffee machine with water coming out of the nozzle of your espresso/coffee machine or there is a smaller amount of water then usual that you notice coming out of the nozzle area, locate a pin or a sewing needle and clean the nozzle head with the pin or sewing needle. This actually happens due mostly to the grind level of the beans that most people have there unit set on. When you first get your machine there are actually no problems grinding your beans to the finest setting but as time goes on these small grinds end up building up and eventually clogging the nozzle head due to the fineness of the grind and the oil that is found in coffee beans. This also may require more then one cleaning with the pin or sewing needle on the nozzle head depending on how fine the grinds are that you use in your machine. All espresso/coffee machines should have this done often especially if you are used to a finely ground coffee. The simpler solution would be to turn down the grind setting but preferably more people set there unit to the highest grind setting thinking there will be a difference in the taste or strength or robustness of the coffee or espresso. If the beans are not ground at the maximum setting by turning the fineness of the grind down you not only save yourself the amount of time to clean the nozzle head with a pin or needle. You also prevent clogs of this finely ground amount of coffee from backing up in your water path within the unit as well. If the fine grounds are not removed in this manner eventually you can cause damage to the machines water pump as well.
Thanks again
Rick
As you can see from other customers replys this does work very well at alleviating this clog issue in the nozzle head

Why when grinder is on finest setting


Did you clean the grinder before using it? Did you run a 1/2 kilo or so of junk beans through to clean out any oil/grease that was in the system from manufacture? How old are the coffee beans? If you grind at a 4 and run it through the drip machine, does the coffee still taste off?

We have a sunbeam cafe series coffee machine that is 2 years old but suddenly under extracts on the pour and cannot reach the extraction pressure we are used to. We grind our own beans as well.


Generally, this is not a problem with the machine but with how you're loading the coffee! Sounds typical of one of these problems:-

Not enough coffee in the basket
Coffee should be filled and tamped to about 3mm below the rim.
Coffee grind not fine enough (too coarse)
Do you grind your own coffee or buy ready-ground? If buying ready-ground, make sure it is for espresso (fine) and not for filter or plunger.
If you have your own grinder, (like the Sunbeam Conical Grinder), then make sure the coffee hopper on top is securely connected to the grinder. I'd been using mine for years on the the finest grind (1) not realising the hopper wan't on right. Only discovered it when I took it apart to clean. Now my grinder is on 9-10 to grind for espresso.
Coffee not tampered down hard enough
You do need to provide a reasonable degree of pressure to tamp the coffee down just right.
Group head not turned tight enough
Push the group handle as far to the right as it will go, then ease it back just a fraction to have the right pressure.

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!!

My grinder takes 3 times longer to grind now and makes a grating sound.. have emptied out all beans and taped out machine with no luck. cant access blades to clean... started 2 days ago. owned for 2 yrs


Here is something maybe you can try. Of course I know what your problem is, its caked up and dirty from the oil of the beans, over a period of time they form like guey mess. You were on the right path by emptying the bean and shaking it. If this grinder has different setting from maximum course to finest. I am sure it does, remember what mark it was on, write that down. Then put the grind setting on the maximum setting, what that will do is open up the blades, ( unplug machine for safety) so there no so close and then try and us a pipe cleaner, and get down best you can, then shake machine upside down again. Before you put grinder back on the mark you originally had it, turn machine back on and let it try and run with blades set at maximum setting. That will help throw some of that junk out, then turn upside down again and shake, even can use a shop vac and **** some of it out. then dry and put setting back to original setting and see if it works. I hope this helps, let me know by rating my advice. Thanks Mike

I have a bunn coffee grinder that keeps on jamming up everytime you put coffee beans in it. I took the front part off to clean it out every time it jams,but it keeps on doing the same thing. The model bunn...


It sounds as though your grind is out of adjustment. The grinder is probably set too fine. I have not worked on a G3 grinder but I would think it is like the Bunn G2. On the front knob you will find 2 small set screws and one larger adjustment screw (in the middle of the knob)
1. Set the selector knob to finest setting (Espresso or Turkish)
2. Loosen the 2 set screws about 2 turns.
3. Activate the start switch (you must activate the "bag switch" behind the chute)
4. With the grinder running, SLOWLY turn the center screw clockwise only until you hear a very slight whirring sound (this is the burrs touching).
5. Then, back off the center screw counter-clockwise about 1/8 of a turn, shut off grinder and re-tighten the set screws.
Check the grind in the "drip" setting by running a few beans through... the grounds should be about the consistency of sand. You should get a better flow through the machine with the grind adjusted properly. You may want to check the cleanliness of the hopper in the top... I have seen these dirty enough to impede the falling of the beans to the grinder.
Also, whenever you remove (for cleaning) the 2 larger screws that hold on the front "plate", be sure to put them back in evenly... kind of like one would with a wheel on a car- Finger-tight then slightly tighten each on a little at a time (back and forth) until tight.
Hope this helps.

Hi i have a grinder problem with my Saeco Odea Go


Try this remove all the beans using a vac cleaner, then turn to lowest-finest number, then remove screws on grinder lift chamber and turn knob to coarsest setting and reassemble and try machine, remember to adjust grind when machine is grinding.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!
