Question about Mazzer Electronic Coffee Grinder

1 Answer

I left my Mazzer mini (doserless) in the care of a housesitter, now I cannot seem to chnage the fineness of the grind. It is too coarse but moving the collar to the right or left does not seem to change the grind at all.

    I am confused. I thought to make the burrs meet (ie at the finest grind) one turns the collar all the way to to the right (ie counterclockwise). If I do that and then back it off only two marks, it would still be too fine for espresso--more like in the turkish range. (the average grind setting for espresso is more like at 6:00)



    But anyway, my real problem is that the burrs don't seem to move regardless of how fine I turn the collar. There can't be anything jammed in there I dont think because it is still grinding, just at a coarse grind. Maybe I need to take it apart and clean the burrs?

Probably the adjustment ring have been moved the whole turn so you need to turn it again too much back to have more fine coffee. To get more fine you need to turn the grinder ring clockwise. You need to turn it step by step to fine direction turn on the motor for a second then switch it off again. Now you can turn it to more fine again and so on. This will avoid the grinding discs to lock together and thus blocking the motor.
One more easier way to adjust the grinder is to remove all coffee from the hopper. Start the motor to grind all remaining beans in the disks. Now when they are empty you can turn the ring clockwise unit it can not go further thus mean the two disk are touching each other. Now turn the ring back anticlockwise -two hours back- if the ring is a normal clock estimate the distance of moving from12 o clock to 10 o clock. so now you have set the grinder correctly. All you need is to precise adjust it by testing the coffee on the coffee machine and it might need a little more either fine or coarse.

    We thought from your description that you have clean the burns and all ware fine.

    Anyway now everything seems more clear. You need to remove the upper ring by unscrewing it counterclockwise and you can remove both the top and bottom burns by removing the three screws on both off them and by using a metallic brush clean them very good. You can even use warm water but after you have brush them out very good. Now you need to clean also the burns compartment very good from coffee ground and oil using a metallic tool like a screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner so that to remove all the coffee and coffee oil remaings. Remember to clean also the funner of ground coffee going into the dosser using the vacuum.

    After this the grinder will faction as new.

We have a Mazzer Super Jolly grinder and we can not get the dosing lever to move without pulling very hard while holding the machine with the other hand. Please help.


your doser mech is possibly gunked up with old grinds, first off try stripping it and cleaning it out, if that doesnt work you may need a new return spring but i think its far more likely to just need a good clean. this is from the mazzer mini but the doser design is pretty much the same so it should help you with disassembly

My mazzer coffee grinder brings out medium to almost a whole bean grinds ,,,am trying to get a fine grind(for the espresso) but it's not working ,,, i've tried to move the scale to all the numbers but the...


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.

Ground coffee does not come out


Try this, unplug grinder, vac out all beans, then turn grinder towards fine until you cannot turn the big nut in the center of the burr chamber with your fingers. Now turn adjuster towards coarse until you can barely move the middle nut(you should hear and feel the burs touching) now if you look around the edges of the adjustment ring you will see notches, pick a spot any spot just remember where you started, then turn 14 notches towards coarse, your grind should be almost perfect.

Burrs spin but no grinding


Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.

Grind is like powder


There are 3 springs in the holes around the top neck of the machine, the top part which sits under the collar adjustment knob.

Mini mazzer grind doesnt adjust


Can the silver collar turn? If yes then adjust, clean out all the grounds then grind for 3 secs, clean grounds then 10 secs(that will give you about 12-16 grams for a test shot). The 3 secs grind and clean is for the coffee that is already ground with the previous setting, there is still a small amount between the burrs and the chute.

The mazzer mini doesn't grind


Either the burrs are set too fine, or the gate for the bean hopper is closed.

Mazzer luigi super jolly


Easiest way to set the grind on the super jolly is to remove the beans, turn towards fine until you can barely move the middle stem in the grind chamber, then turn towards course about 12-14 notches on the grinding adjuster(not numbers but notches between numbers). If you still cannot get a fine grind and it is not a brand new grinder replace burrs.
