Question about KitchenAid A-9 Electric Burr Grinder

Clogged? My coffeegrinder suddenly stopped working correctly. The beans seem to be going down into the grinder, and it is grinding I think, but there are no grounds coming out. Seems clogged or something? And the machine gets very hot.  Any suggestions?

I took the jar off and cleaned/scraped the port out(the square hole that the gounds come out of) then gently "bumped" the top and side of the unit on newspapers to get the accumulation of 40 years of stray grounds out and it runs great now!!

My Gaggia Unica won't grind the coffee beans, it just whirs and stops making the drink


More than likely the machine is stuffed with coffee grind. Need to take it apart and clean it. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQbP2v8C-sA

I have the CCM-16A grinder that gets clogged while grinding. I have to shake it so the beans keep going thru to grind. How can I clean it?


Chris, unplug the machine. The the coffee receptacle out and clean out the discharge opening with a small brush. The coffee sticks to this opening and causes the machine to stop. Its a safety feature to stop the machine when the receptacle is full. Good luck.

Oily beans seem to have clogged our coffee grinder up. What can we do?


Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift it off. Remove the outer burr with the 2 wings and clean under the burr. Clean the opening going to the chute for ground coffee(inside where the burr was).
Install the outer burr. Install the bean hopper. Rotate the bean hopper to the French press grind (coarsest) and operate the grinder. This will clean the burrs and the passages. If it starts to clog, repeat the last part to clean the burrs and passage. It must be grinding to go to a finer setting, but you can go to a coarser setting any time. Another thing. Turn the grinder upside down (empty) and rotate the bean hopper back and forth to clean the threads of the adjusting burr..

All of sudden my grinder plugs up. coffee settles in around the base of the burr and does not seem to fall into the grind bucket, so the machine still runs but grinding basically stops as no more more...


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Braun Aromatic KMM10 stops grinding


Soulds like a thermal overload breaker? I know you should not have to do this . Use an outlet that is not shared with any other item, if one is available and if there is a selector for different grinds see if changing it to a finer grind will help. A couarse gring takes more bean ion each pass and it may be too much load on a single extended grinding. One would think the bigger the bin the better the motor. But try this and if you will, let me know. please

Grinder starts up but wont grind..nothing happens. one week old


I think this might be because no beans have gone down into the mill. There is a definite difference in sound when it is actually grinding beans. Try emptying the beans out, set it to the coarsest setting, put the beans back in, shake the thing a bit then turn it on.

Clogged?


I've been having the same problem. I would clean out the burrs and it would get clogged right away. But I found that at the top of the chute where the coffee comes out that there's a flap type device. Mine was clogged with coffee. When I unclogged it it would swing freely. That seems to have helped. You need to use a skewer or long toothpick to clean it and free it. Use a flashlight to see the flap. It looks like it has a weight attached to it and probably swings back and forth as the coffee is ground.

The grinder itseld seems to be working because it makes the grinding noise. However, the beans are not going down the shaft into the grinder. I have cleaned out the top and removed the container holding...


Make sure the filter basket is in the open position, and that the area that runs from the grind basket to the filter basket is free from grinds and mositure.

Actually, I've never had any problems with my grinder. Got it for a very low price at Costco about 2 years ago. The switch has never failed to function and I've often slid the switch over to the left to stop the grinding before the designated time (I was in a hurry for my coffee) , but this hasn't seemed to negatively effect the function of the switch. It just keeps working.
