Grind setting I get the same very course grind whether the dial is set to 1 or to 9. Seems to have no effect whatsoever. Thoughts?

This grinder is really pretty crappy, I have the same one. If you want anything less coarse, you will have to grind it multiple times. My Grandmother tried using this and it ended up spitting out a few half and whole beans even after grinding. The best you would end up getting would be a drip coffee grind. Check this out, it might help understand the problem: http://www.epinions.com/content_143707967108

Coffee grinder only grinds to course no matter where grind adjuster is set


From what I've read about this grinder, you should be happy that it worked well as long as it did.

I say chuck it & buy a new one!!

With the BES860 set to Dual Wall for full automation, even on the lowest auto grind volume setting, the grind volume is too large and it spills over. This is on double setting and using the double filter...


If your using the dial gauge with a dual wall basket, you need to leave the dial in the dual wall setting. If you move it beyond the dual wall setting, you are basically adding more volume to the basket. Leave it in the dual wall setting for dual wall baskets.

Otherwise it may be faulty, it could be your grind setting, try it on 13 and see how it goes.

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

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.

I have the EAM3200 coffee maker and the coffee comes out of the spout very slowly. We have the grinding dial set for course grinding and we have the flavor dial set to weak. The coffee is very strong...


I find the machine needs a good cleaning at least once a month, make sure you remove the filter unit and clean it well, use a damp cloth or paper towel. Mine went like this when I broke a silicone O-ring, it gets lodged in a waterway and partially blocks it. I describe how to replace them in another solution here, take a look.

Saeco taleo grounds are very wet - almost fluid! this hase started recently when i changed my beans. i have changed the grind to course but with no effect. any ideas?


Try adjusting the amount of coffee and then the grind to finer. If there is not enough coffee in the chamber then it gets over extracted and you get a soupy puck at discharge, if the grind is too coarse, you might also get the same result. Think of your coffee grind as rocks and sand and that will give you a better feel for the proper setting for your machine.

Olympus c-8080 stuck on movie mode. Mode dialing has no effect.


I'VE DONE A LOT OF READING ON THE OLYMPUS SITE AND IT SEEMS LIKE YOUR CAMERA MIGHT JUST HAVE BEEN SET ACCIDENTLY IN MOVIE MODE AS THE DEFAULT SETTING AND THAT IS WHY MOVING THE DIAL HAS NO EFFECT. THE PROBLEM BEING I HAVE YET TO DISCOVER THE TRICK TO REVERSE THIS DEFAULT SETTING FROM MOVIE AND BACK TO THE FUNCTIONS OF THE MODE DIAL. YOU ARE POSSIBLY IN A BETTER PLACE TO DO THIS PART OF THE FIX. I AM HOPING BY HEARING THAT IT IS IN A DEFAULT SETTING YOU MIGHT KNOW WHO WOULD HAVE DONE THIS AND HAVE THEM RESET THE CONTROL TO NORMAL.
IF THIS DOES NOT PRODUCE ANY RESULTS, PLEASE REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217 AND I WILL DIG DEEPER INTO THAT SITE TO FIND THE SOLUTION TO RESET THE DEFAULT! I WON'T LEAVE YOU HUNG IN TOON TOWN! WE'LL GET IT.

How do I set 1 touch dialing?


It's pretty much phone system dependent on the one touch, but PROG F button, 9+number STORE usually works.

As far as the calling into IVR systems, you may have to press # to send touch tones after you dial a number, or adjust the tone length in programming. Of course not all systems let you change DTMF times, but that's another thread :-)

Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to turn...you'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.
