In order to adjust the grind, follow these steps (Refer to
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.
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.
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.
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.
It does have a spring that you may have simply lost. It is called a Grinding Setting Pin #HGP120. If you do not replace the spring you will lose your grind setting each time. I can send you a replacement spring via USPS for $2.50 +$4.95 Postage

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.
For excessive staining use of household stain or scale remover is recommended. To remove difficult stains fill your flask with hot water, add one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and secure cap. Soaking overnight produces excellent results. Always rinse before re-use. this is from http://www.thermos.co.uk/care.php
my hubby used it as he uses his thermos daily... so goodluck!
May, The only Zassenhaus products I know of are burr grinders, not coffee makers. About any kind of coffee maker...are you speaking about the appliance attachment cord? If you have the brand, or can carry the unit in, the cord can be matched at the local hardware store. If you don't have such access, get the name/model number and call www.smallappliance.com.
