There are four slots in the bottom through which you can see the attachment clips. These clips are not mounted on the base but clip into the base. There is a special 4 prong tool that is used to depress these but if you don't have one, which you most certainly will not have, you need to use four small nails to open it up. Looking at them from the bottom, the clips look like a capital E with an extra horizontal leg. try to drive your nails in to the middle of the back of the E, that is on the flat side. After you have done this use a claw hammer to pry the bottom off by inserting the claws into the seam between the bottom and the top and twisting until something gives. You will probably get the bottom off without destroying more than one of the clips. No matter, you can tape or glue the ****** back together.

If power lose was your problem, remove the switch from its clip then test it to see if depressing the button causes the contact rod to touch both of the copper plates which are mounted on opposite sides of the switch, be careful while making this test - you have to have the grinder plugged in and you do not want to be touching any electrical contacts, the blade or the motor. Also beware of the torque from the motor causing you to drop the grinder. Also, beware of the torque from the motor causing you to drop the grinder in the unlikely event that it is working.

If depressing the switch doesn't cause the switch shaft to come in contact with both plates then get a pair of plyers and bend the copper plates down so that contact can be readily be made.

Retest to confirm the fix works then reassemble, using tape, glue or whatever and then -- it's coffee time!!

    Good luck getting those tabs to unclip w/o breaking them! I just found the problem though the switch has 2 copper tabs that make contact with its little cone button, there was metal eaten away from the button from arcing and one of the copper tabs was also half eaten away I just twisted it 90 degrees then bent the copper tabs down as much as possible voila! put together still working...

To disassemble the Krups 203B grinder locate the four recessed clips which snap into the base. Tip the unit over and look at the base. I was not able to unsnap these without damaging the clips. Once the clip ends were removed the base and top separated easily. The AC cord is soldered to two connections. The cord was easily shortened and resoldered solving the intermittent power problem. The base and top were reassembled and a small amount of glue in a few locations secured the base to the top.

How do I clean my burr mill (Models BMX3, BMX4, BMX5 and BMX6)?


Clean your burr mill before using it for the first time. Then, to ensure optimal mill function and durability, clean it regularly following these simple steps.
  1. Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
  2. Open the hopper lid. Empty any whole beans from the hopper. Remove the top burr mill by rotating it clockwise. For better results hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill clockwise. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel and the grinding compartment.
  3. Clean the interior recesses with a soft brush. Note: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance. BRUSH NOT INCLUDED.
  4. Wipe the whole bean hopper, its lid and the mill exterior with a damp cloth.
  5. The ground coffee chamber and lid can be washed in mild detergent and water. They both are top rack dishwasher safe. Do not immerse the mill or the whole bean hopper in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  6. After completely drying the whole bean hopper and top burr mill, replace the burr mill in position by aligning snaps with receptacle and rotating counterclockwise to lock it in position. For better results, hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill counterclockwise. Once the burr mill is in position, pull gently to check it is properly locked in position. If the burr mill comes out, repeat this step again.
  7. Replace the ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure both snap securely into place.
  8. Fill the hopper with whole beans.

I had the same problem. The metal filter is clogged with very finely ground coffee. To clear the filter, boil it in vinegar and let it sit for a few hours. Rinse the filter and run water through it in the machine (no coffee in the filter). I found I had to grind the coffee at the medium setting in order to keep the problem from recurring.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!

Lots of disturbing noises, no coffee


It is is easy, if you know how to do it... as always
First take of the wather, trach bin etc,
Start with removing the cup wher the beans is stored, the adjustment knob for the mill is a tricky part. Remove it by bending out the side of the knob. Thereafter remove the screws from cup and those you on see on the top.
The front (silver frame) is removed by lifting it upwards, behind it you have 4 screws that has to be removed.
The last two screws is found under the wather tank.
Now you should had take away 11 screws, at least...
Bend the back of top and it will be off. Finally push the rest of the plastic cover backwards.

Do you know what the error codes says? I have know 6,8and no coffy...
