Hi
More than likley you grinder has become seperated internally. You either need to disassemble the grinder completely, clean it and then try to reconnect the pieces or just replace the grinder. I have some. Just let me know, new or used reconditioned.

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.

Set grinding and extraction on ambiente


Grinder setting will not just affect extraction time, it will also affect taste. A fine grind will be slower but have a creamier look, a coarse grind will speed up delivery. From whatever setting you are on look at the result, you are after the good creamy top of a good expresso. only adjust one step at a time, and check a few cups before any more adjustment. You do not want it so slow that you have to wait ages, So go for coarsest grind with a creamy head. Overtime you might have to readjust due to wear, Select only one hopper at a time to adjust, Do not try and adjust when blending, one side at a time until both give same result and speed for same coffee, Then you can go onto blending.

I cannot change the grind- have had it for 2 hours and the grind is embarrassing.....I feel sick to know I have spend $1k and it does a terrible grind


Hi, dont panic. Just takes a bit of time to get to know your new LOVE. Wish I knew what machine you have. The adjustment is on the side of the bean hopper mostly. 1 is fine and five is coarse. Start on 3 and go from there. It can take 1 to 3 shots before you get a correct gauge. you need to check the cake of the used coffee. It needs to be a solid dry paddy. Dont make the grind too fine though. Should be like coarse sand. There could also be another adjustment for the amount of coffee that gets ground up to be brewed. It will either be near the grind adjustment or it maybe a program adjustment. Good Luck. Daz

Hi
there are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small knob down to the middle and try again. you can get too much coffee in the brew unit and it will dump the grounds instead of making coffee. If the grinds are to big or coarse, it will also dump the ground.

Lets do this, remove the bean hopper, and make sure there are no beans in the burr chamber. Then looking down at the collar with the numbers back up screw if there is one on it. Now if memory serves me right clockwise is coarse and counter is fine. Look down in the burr chamber, notice the nut in the middle, turn it with your fingers that will move the bottom burr, if burr turns freely we will move on if not plug in grinder and let it grind out remaining beans. With beans gone unplug grinder, then turn collar towards fine until you cannot go no more, now try turning nut it will be hard if not impossible to move, turn collar towards coarse until you can barely move bottom burr with fingers, you will hear and feel the burrs touching, that will be our bottom setting. Now pick a spot on the grinder you can use the small notch in the middle, count out 16 notches towards coarse and turn collar to that point. Use the notches around the collar not the ones on the top next to the numbers. Your grind should be almost perfect, depending on blend and machine you might have to adjust 1 notch to the left or right after testing.

Does not grind evenly When I try to grid a coarse grind for french press coffee I get a lot of small grinds.


I was a little confused at first but where ir says coarse on the adjustment "wheel" is actually the fine setting. If you want coarse you need to turn it the opisite direction. If you look cloosely you will notice there is an arrow beside where it says coarse pointing to the right and beside where it says fine there is an arrow pointing left. It kind of makes no sense, but I guess since they've been making it for like 70 years they figure why fix it. I hope this helps, I had the same problem the first time I used mine, and the manual doesn't really mention it.

Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse


Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.

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.

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.
