Apparently, you unplug the unit, dump any beans out of the supply hopper, then rotate the burr intake module in the bottom of the supply hopper counterclockwise. You can then pull it out, and brush it out. You also brush out the other half of the burr unit; don't put water or anything in it, you'll kill your grinder. You can, in theory, wash the removable module, but if you do, be sure it's ABSOLUTELY dry before you put it back together.

You need to clean it out every 3-4 days. I use a brush and pointed knife for the packed grounds. Mine works great now.

My A-9 KA coffee mills are working perfectly. 2003 never quits, 2006 was a royal pain and burrs/pin replaced and working perfectly. Now, I have a 2004 used for decaf, actual use from purchase about


I don't see a question in the paragraph but common problems for the A9 are 1) Shear pin 2) Motor brushes 3) slow motor operation
If shear pin then the grinders won't turn or may intermittently rotate if pin is half broken
If motor brushes worn to nubs then a fast clicking noise and sporadic on off operation followed by no operation
If motor is slow then the commutator may need cleaning requiring removing the rotor

How do I clean the inside of the coffee grinder kitchenaid model A-9


Instructions Things you need
  • Soapy water
  • Screwdriver
  • Burr cleaning brush
  • Damp cloth

1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.

2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.

3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.

4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.

5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.

6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.

7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.

8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.

9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.

10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.

11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.

12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.

My Cuisinart CCM-16PC suddenly decided not to burr/grind coffee. It doesn't turn on. Electrical recepticle is hot and the device is plugged in. I've cleaned all of the connections/buttons/grooves so...


Same thing happened to me about 1 year ago. I took the machine apart and determined the issue to be in the circuit board. I bypassed the board and wired the power cord directly to the motor. The machine began to work and is still operating fine. The only drawback, of course - having bypassed the circuit board and switch, you now are on full manual operation. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and the motor spins; when you are finished grinding you have to remove the cord from the power source to stop the motor. I am OK with this - beats 35 - 50 dollars for a new grinder. Dave

How to change mazzer luigi srl "major" blades


Start by closing the hopper and grinding all the beans through the unit. Remove the hopper and look for any lock screws on the top of the adjustment collar (or ring). Remove the screws if present and turn the adjustment collar clock-wise (coarser) until it comes off. Pull out the upper burr holder. You then need to take out the three screws that hold on each burr (blades) and remove them. Then you want to use a shop vac to clean out all of the grounds. Make sure there is no coffee on the burr holders that could cause the new burrs to not be level. Assemble the new burrs on to the holders. Take a dry towel and clean the threads of the collar and the threads inside the mill. You don't want any coffee grounds on the threads, that could cause the adjustment collar to lock up and may damage the threads which can be extremely expensive. Use a small amount of lithium grease on the threads and reassemble. Screw the adjustment collar all the way down to where the burrs are touching. Then back it up 1.5 numbers (12-14 little bumps on the outer edge of the collar). This is a good "starting point". Pull some shots and adjust as needed.

As I can see, what happens is that some coffee grains stucks in the way from the upper pot to the grinding wheel. This is not something usual, but possible if coffee grains are too big and are placed across the entry of the mill. Try cleaning more deep with some old toothbrush. Look for a clean and even surface of the duct.
Other cause might be a loosen mill hub/grinding wheel off the motor shaft, which would require dissassemble of the appliance to be repaired.

Zassenhaus knee coffee mill grinds too coarsely


I have a Zass and sometimes have a problem with it self adjusting, but when I do need to adjust it, I find that I have give it a good tap on the top to make sure it adjusts. So, just turn the knob counter clockwise as far as it will go, then give it a good knock on the top and bottom and try again. My mill offers the full grinding range, from a fine powder to large chunks.
