Check to make sure the beans are gettng inside the machine to the blades. Make sure blades are still sharp and make sure they spin when motor is on. If they are not spinning, the blades make have broken loose on the shaft that spins them. They are usually pressed on and sometimes the the shaft can wear loose. Make sure blades are tightly on and are sharp and there is no obstruction

    I can see the BURR turning. Is that what you meant? The ground coffee just collects at the bottom of the grinding compartment after just a short while of expelling the meal into the collection container. When I clean it the ground coffee seems quite packed at the bottom.
    I quit using this machine 3 years ago because of a broken timer/starter knob, which I now have. It was working fine when the knob broke.

I have got a master 5000 and the brew unit gets jammedor locks when goes on brew mode.


Hi
There are a couple (3) of things that can cause this.
1. You have a broken brew drive but you would hear a clicking noise if this happens.
2. You have an over charge going into you brew unit. There is a small knob in your bean hopper. Turn it back 1 mark and try again.
3. Your grinder has come apart and is grinding very coarse. (French press size) New grinder.

My Solis Maestro takes a long time to grind and no longer grinds for espresso. How do you remove the burrs to clean them? Should they be replaces?


HI
Yes the burrs will wear out. They can be replaced. To remove the outer burr. Twist the bean hopper counterclockwise until it stops. Lift the bean hopper out. There is a cream colored ring with 2 tabs that will lift out holding the outer burr. To get the inner cone burr out is a little more difficult. We use a vice grip and grab the burr, and lock the pliers to it. Then with a quick movement clockwise on the pliers, you loosen it. Then clockwise unscrew the burr. When you install the new burr, it truns on counter clockwise until it stops. Insert the new outer burr. Push down so the tabs will lock in. Install the bean hopper into the correct slots ( 1 large tab and 1 small tab). Twist clockwise to turn on and test. Remember it must be grinding to turn to a finer grind but can be turned to a coarser grind any time.

How to adjust new baratza maestro plus I had a solis maestro previously that, when dialed all the way up, did produce a grind fine enough for a good espresso, but this new machine does not. I have taken...


I, just adjusted the the solis 167; first remove the Bean container by turning counter clockwise and the pull straight up) then remove the timer dialer (time/quantity control), then remove the cover by lifting the locking tabs (2 slots each side) with a flat screw driver. Once you removed the cover. Pull straight up the the white ring with the metal cup. Now you see a dark ring which is clicked on the with unit. When you look under the ring you an see little holes all along the white unit (that's important because you need to mark your old position). After marking the thr ring on the white unit, pull off the the dark ring by slowly pulling the ring outwards just on 2 places on the ring where there an small hole in the ring (there are 4 holes). When you turn the ring you will see 2 nobs, now place back the ring with the nobs 2 places further(clockwise) than the old position. You have just adjusted the grinding control! Place back all parts in reversed order. To place back the Bean container you must be aware that there are 2 black nobs in the machine and 2(different sizes!) on the container, they must be placed in a cross.
I trust you will hav succes. Don't turn to far at once because you have now modified the machine and this could damage it! I will assume no responsibillity for damages! Masta NL

Cleaned the Solis Maestro grinder and re set it to a fine espresso setting but the grind is coming out very course. What should i do?


Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

Embarassing but...


No, wait, I found it. If it's round and is (or used to be) white, it fits on the bottom of the clear plastic hopper. Replace it and you should be in good shape again.

Grinder setting stops at drip. Can't turn further to espresso.


Another suggestion is while the grinder is off, turn it up side down and rotate the bean hopper from coarse to fine a couple of times. This will clean out grounds that have gotten into the threads and it will prevent the bean hopper from not turning to a finer grind.
If you start to get a clog in your grinder, open it up to a coarse grind for a few seconds. The coarser grind will clean out the chute and then you can turn it down again while it is still grinding.
