Grinding setting is one simple operation but requires bit patience:

  1. Turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest grinding)
  2. From that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line
  3. Grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine (if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way.
  4. You test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation)
  5. After setting measure the grounded coffee that comes out from dosser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of dosser.

PS: the pump pressure of coffee machine should be from 8 to 10 bar and steam pressure should be from 1.1 to 1.5 bar> depends on type of coffees you use.

I have a Nuova Simonelli Aurelia, suddenly the machine lost power? any help


Check the breaker. It might be too much for the circuit with other appliances. If the breaker is OK, pull the plug on the wall and then count to 10 and plug back in.

I can hear the grinder on nuova simonelli try to gring, but it seems like soemthing is stuck. how can i fix this?


Remove the bean hopper and vac out all beans, then remove black cover, then 3 phillips screws, and top part of burrs should come off. Clean our chamber then reassemble. DO NOT TURN ON. Make sure middle nut in chamber spins freely, use fingers to turn, if not adjust setting to coarser, until it moves freely, then turn on grinder. All you have to do now is set your grind.

With the dial turned to "Turkish" I still get a very course grind. How to adjust/fix?


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.

What is the proper number setting for the grinder


There isn't one, because your grind depends on the bean you are using, the temperature and so on. The best thing you can do is clear the burr chamber of beans, then turn grinder clockwise until you can no longer turn the brass fitting in the middle, then turn counter-clockwise to about 4 numbers that will give you a nice starting point to setting your grind.

How do i make regular coffe with this machine. The type of coffee you get from cheapest coffee makers. Anyobdy can tell me what settings i need to adjust.


If you need a long cup regular coffee with top quality you should just add hot water in an espresso this called filter cream or americano. If you need the cheap quality as you mention you should adjust the grinder to make the coffee grinding more groase with this coffee will come faster and with pure quality

Espresso coffee grinder stopped working


many grinders have resetable termic fuse, some of them require manual reset, so you should search for termic fuse attached to body of motor(open the grinder from below) usualy they are round black termofuses with red reset button.
usualy this happenes when we have loud music and we dont hear that grinder is on and he works long time.
