Turn adjustment ring towards fine, until it cannot move, then back towards coarse about 5 numbers, that should give you a good start on the grind.

I took everything apart to give it a good cleaning and now all settings produce a very fine grind. Any thoughts?


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.

Have a grinder and it is full of coffee and stuck. It seems the beans were more oily and now I am trying to figure out how to clean it out. Please help


  • Try to grind all the beans through.
  • Put some uncooked rice inside the hopper and grind it, it is very good at cleaning if you don't have Grindz. Get Grindz if you can to grind and clean the burrs.
  • Try to take the grinder apart and brush off and clean off the burrs by hand.

Can not turn the grind wheel - forgot how to do it. It has been on medium grind so long, now want fine grind


Same thing happened to me. It turned out the cause was a build up of hardened coffee grounds. We took it apart (a bit tricky!) and cleaned it. Now works like new.

I took the grinder apart and realized that there is no mark as to where set the initial burr setting. It does not seem to be that you screw it down as far as it will go. the adjuster spring simply gets...


simply you screw until you hear metal sound of burrs touching each other. Than:

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)
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

The coffee comes out in little logs or clumps. The coffee is weak- no crema.


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.

Embarassing but...


No, wait, I found it. If it's round and is (or used to be) white, it fits on the bottom of the clear plastic hopper. Replace it and you should be in good shape again.
