Question about Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr Grinder

2 Answers

I bought a Krups GVX2 coffee grinder and am not able to get it to work. I have followed the instructions "to the letter" but once it's plugged in and switched on, the "on" switch on the actual machine doesn't do anything.....no electricity whatsoever. Please help.

I know that this machine is sensitive with the lids needing to be securely fastened (both the top and the plastic catch bottom container) maybe that is it.

Breathe out gently (with your mouth) into the plastic container before you grind. Also after you grind. The moisture in your breath will eliminate the static cling. Don't blow. Also, if you drop the lid of the ground coffee container into the empty jar where you keep coffee, the drop will knock off the coffee clinging to it.

Check all connections and plug then after that it is a short behind the switch and will need to be sent back to the manufacturer.

Krups GVX2-12 grinder - ground coffee and container full of static so coffee sticks all over, including inside the container. Any ideas?


Most plastic products contain enough carbon black to neutralise this problem. Obviously not with yours.

Try a camera accessory cleaning cloth - specifically anti-static.

Cleaning less often will also help, and maybe a quick brush out would result in less mess.

Natural fibres like cotton cloths or bristle brushes will also help.

Coffee naturally has oils that, if left on, will eliminate this problem anyway.

GVX2 krups coffee grinder; how to open it?


I have the same issue. You need to take both dials off, then on the bottom, there are 4 tabs on the inside. Seperate the halves and you will see them. Towards the front and halfway back. Pry the halves apart enough to push the top towards the bottom and it slides apart pretty easy. The tricky part now is finding the replacement part. I have super glued my switch and I want to do something to try and repair it further. Maybe epoxy. I called Krups and they can't sell the part to me. I called one of their service centers and they can't sell the part to me. So, if someone knows where to get the part, I am all ears :)

Cannot get my krups burr grinder gvx 2 to turn on or do anything. there are no instructions in the box.


Hi,

The GVX2 has two micro switches. one on the top hopper (in the groove on right hand side) and the other in the space the coffee holder (collector) fits into.

The coffee collector micro switch is activated by the lid of the collector.

You have to listen for a small "click" as you place the hopper on and again as you insert the coffee collector.

Fill out water


The Krups Burr Grinder GVX2 featured in the picture is not a coffee maker, per se, it only grind coffee beans to use in other coffee makers. It is a lousy machine, and I would recommend returning it or not buying it.
DO NOT PUT WATER INTO THIS MACHINE. It will cause electric shock.

Coffee grinder


Mine had a piece of the top/bean lid broken off and lodged in the groove preventing the lid from going down far enough to release the safety switch which is on the right (as you look at the front) in the bottom of the groove. Note that there is another safety switch in the body of the grinder above where the ground coffee comes out that must be working as well.
