I had the same problem with too fine a grind when I took mine completely apart to clean (including the lower burr). The solution I finally came around to was to further tighten the star-shaped screw which holds the lower burr assembly in place. I had originally just tightened it until the lower burr until the lower burr assembly started to turn with the screw, but that wasn't enough. So I held the assembly in place and tightened the screw further and I'm back to my previous grind coarseness/fineness.
simply you screw until you hear metal sound of burrs touching each other. Than:
Grinding setting is one
simple operation but requires bit patience:
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)
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
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.
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)
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
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

HI There are 2 things that can cause this. Either the burrs are bad and need replacing or you grinder is out of adjustment and you need to turn to a finer grind. If you have taken it apart, you are not adjusted close enough so your burrs can't grind fine enough. Readjust the burrs closer together.
