    I came home after 2 weeks. Found that nothing is working. I've never cleaned it. Suggestion?

  • CafeMeister May 11, 2010

    When did it stop?  After cleaning it?  Have you ever cleaned it? Does the motor still work?  Does it sound like it is working but no coffee beans are actually ground?

The drive mechanism from the motor to the burrs has failed in some way. It is necessary to disassemble the machine down to the basic components to determine the fault. Good luck!

SOURCE: My Barista Burr Coffee Grinder suddenly grinds too fine.

If it is any consolation, mine just did the same thing, now takes too long to grind and it is way to fine dispite a thorough cleaning by disassembly.

SOURCE: Our Starbucks Barista burr grinder

Here is a link about a person who had a similar issue.It doesn't answer your question yet but I am searching.When we were looking for a coffee maker last year,I think at BB&B they said that DeLonghi makes all Starbuck's coffee machines.We were disappointed with the DeLonghi.I am checking around to see who makes it though,and possibly an image so I can see better what you mentioned.Greg Will reply again when I find something more.

your best bet is probably to search ebay for a dead one you can strip, cheaper grinders tend not to be supported with parts, personally id recommended throwing it away and getting a better grinder, blade grinders do not give a consistent grind, they are just about acceptable for grinding for a french press but anything else youll be far better off with a burr grinder

I took my Starbucks Barista Conical Burr Grinder apart to clean it, and now I cannot seem to get the top burr back on. This is an old model, purchased in 2000, and has been running great. I used to manage...


I think when you fix the front burr then you need to loose the middle screw. Then it will fix easily.
But don't run it right away.gently tighten the screw and tight until you feel some tightness .Then start the grinder and tighten or loose it according to your grinding specification
thanks
please rate me

I clean with rice and it grinds coffee beans. Then I have to grind moRE RICE TO GET IT TO GRIND COFFEE AGAIN


Instead of rice, fill container about half full with regular table sugar. Grind that for 10-20 seconds. You should not only get coffee flavored powdered sugar but the sugar will soak up the flavors from your grinder.
Then simply clean as you normally would. Works great!

BURRS are the metal parts that grinds the coffee. There are 2 BURRS in the grinders, The upper burr is normally the one you adjust (Fine or coarse) and the lower or closer to the motor is the one turning during the grinding process.

Burrs spin but no grinding


Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.

Not fine enough grind


This model grinder won't do espresso. There is a DIY mod available online that involves disassembling the machine, and recalibrating the burrs to produce a finer grind. I did it on mine, it was definitely better, but it's not going to get you to the coveted 30 second pull for your espresso. Search on Starbucks Barista Grinder Mod. It is a great grinder otherwise, very reliable.
