Question about Bodum 's C-MILL electric blade coffee grinder in matt chrome
The blade on the grinder has come loose. This means it does not follow the turns of the motor. It is just a little bit loose, and I see no way to either remove it or tighten it.
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!

The hub retaining the blade is screwed to the motor shaft. You have to remove the base (very difficult); it snaps into the body so you can get a screwdriver on the end of the motor shaft so you can loosen the hub. After that, find an assortment of washers that will center the blade and exert enough pressure to lock in on the motor shaft. A cup washer works the best.

The solutions from andrumac and red caboose were very helpful (especially popping off the base, which does take some force). After trying to find the right combination of washers, etc, I finally decided to use JB weld (any epoxy should work) and epoxied the blade back to the little hub it was originally attached to. I'll find out tomorrow morning if this solution worked.
