    Dont know of the model but it is probably a bushing and it tightens from underneath take apart and see. If not mechanically inclined then take it to an appliance guy or a person who is good with his hands

Why isn't my grinder or burr mill working?

If your coffee grinder or burr mill stops working, please check the following:
  1. Make sure the unit is plugged into a working electric outlet.
  2. If it is plugged in and still will not turn, check to see if there are any obstructions around the blade. If there are, unplug the unit and remove the obstruction from the blade before reconnecting it to the power source.
If the above troubleshooting does not work, your product needs to be repaired or replaced. Contact an Authorized Service Center.

Ave an SAECO INCANTO RONDA with milling problems.

You can turn the grinder (mill) so the plates open for a more gross coffee this will help the grinder motor to rotate more free you can use a vacume cleaner to **** all the remainig coffee inside the grinder. If still not any reaction you have to desasemble complete clean the grinding plates. If you still not have any reaction then the grinder motor burn out and need to bee replaced.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE BLADE FROM A HEAVY DUTY MILWAUKEE SANDER/GRINDER, CLOCKWISE, OR COUNTER CLOCKWISE? Some tool at my wearhouse tightened the blade so much my boss and three other guys can't get it off to...

i am a registered Architect and all kinds and brands of angle grinder and even edger i've seen are to be loosened counter clockwise....even once i didn't encountered yet a clockwise loosened...unless that your grinder is so called to be an special one"?So for sure,you can READ the thread of the bolt of the lock of the blade to let you know what is the exact rotation.

Blade is now loose, unconected to the rod or spindle.

I had this same problem. This is fixable if you are willing. I repaired mine because I am stubborn and I bought mine used and had no warranty. I found that if you pull out the bottom of the coffee grinder you can access the inside motor assembly. * Note, that the bottom is designed to pull out a couple inches and it acts as an electric cord caddy. You must carefully pry it all the way out. It is a good idea to put a pencil mark for reference on the bottom of the coffee grinder that lines up with the bottom lid piece you are removing because you must install the bottom lid in the same orientation in which you removed it. There is a slot where the electric cord sits in as well so pay attention as you pull it out. It is likely you will just have to yank the plastic bottom cover out. This will probably snap an internal lock tab off the bottom cover, as did happen with mine, but it still sat securely enough back inside after the repair was complete for my liking. After you fix your blade you can easily just glue the bottom cover on if you damage your lock tabs and then just do with out the cord caddy feature.(thats for little old ladies and neat freaks any way) Now that you have the bottom cover removed, Look at the motor spindle, it is in the center of the bottom of the motor. There is a slot in it. Use a screwdriver in this slot to keep it from spinning while you grab the hard plastic cone that sits on top of the grinder blade. Try putting your pliers down flush to the very bottom of the grinder before you grip the blade assembly, as it will minimize any gouging of the plastic cone on the top of the blade assembly. There are no flats on this cone so you cant use a socket or nut driver. Spin thescrew-driver counter- clockwise until the blade comes off. The blade assembly is threaded on to the motor spindle and it comes off easily. I had to lay my grinder on the floor and kneel on it to free my hands to remove the blade. So it can be done alone. Now that you have the blade off you will see that the blade has worked itself free and is just floating around in the threaded cone. Now you can either contact Bodum and demand a new blade assembly or you can repair the blade assembly as well. I cut off the plastic cone and was left with a threaded insert, I was able to configure nuts and washers and reattached the blade without the plastic cone material. It may not be as prettty but it will never break again! Like I said I am stubborn......

Grinder starts up but wont grind..nothing happens. one week old

I think this might be because no beans have gone down into the mill. There is a definite difference in sound when it is actually grinding beans. Try emptying the beans out, set it to the coarsest setting, put the beans back in, shake the thing a bit then turn it on.

The blade has come loose

Had the same problem myself - another example of a product made to break!
Red Caboose has it spot on. Just a couple of points. The thread on the motor shaft is a 4mm machine screw. the shaft thickens a little bit below the thread (very short) forming a slight collar. I put a washer (slightly larger that the width of the blade) onto this, followed by the blade. You''ll then need a washer to sit into the blade to centre it on the shaft. Follow this with a cup washer (as Red Caboose) suggests or a locknut. Working perfectly now!
