Rancilio Rocky Doserless Burr Grinder reassembly

I followed a video (Seattle Espresso) for taking it apart to clean it but I cannot get it reassembled. The burrs start to screw back together and then get very stuck after only a few turns, nowhere close to completely on. I have brushed and brushed. I do see a faint line on both sets of threads but nothing seems to remove it.

SOURCE: Rancilio grinder does not grind fine enough for espresso

After taking the top burr off several times and rescrewing it, I finally was able to exert enough force to get it to turn a couple of extra turns. Evidently there was some oil or coffee gunk (although I could see none) that snagged the bur. Now it appears to work as before.

This is a great, service by the way. Even the process of thinking through the problem so I could post it helped me solve it.

  1. replacement of burrs after 500 kg grinded coffe
  2. if upper burr holder and the body of grinder does not hold stabile, teflon aplying does not help too much, it is only temporary solution. new upper bur holder would do better.
  3. before inserting upper burr holder you should check if lower burr is rotating syncronized, you should take a bit chalk and sof touch while burr rotates. after that you stop grinder and look do you have circle with same thiknes, that would give you idea where is the problem, if it is in lower burr.

to get starting point you adjust burrs to touch each other. when they touch each other you have finest grinding, after you hear metal voice you turn back 3 dots and grind only for 1 dose. you check it, if it goes to slow, you go one more back and clean gruinder, THAN you grind 1 dose more. 2 or 3 times and you will get perfect grinding.

  1. because it didn't work a wilde the upper burr holder could be jammed, carefully take id off, clean it good and then put it back until you touch lower burr with the upper.

I disassembled the grinding blades and put it back together but now I can not get a find grind


HI
When you reassemble the removable burr assembly, you first must make sure that there are no grinds left in the main body's threads. These grinds will prevent the burrs from going any farther down. The burrs must touch and then back off to zero the grinder. Don't ever leave them touching though.

Tip

Rancilio Rocky w/ doser: clean sweep of coffee grounds


The Rancilio Rocky coffee grinder is a superb, highly recommended machine, but its doser is pretty useless in the home. First reason: you want to grind coffee instants before you brew or pull your espresso shot; otherwise, the grinds just lose aromatics and flavor. The doser only works for multiple doses, so you're better off just grinding the amount you need each time. If you're buying a Rocky, get the doserless model.

If you have the doser model, like I do, you also find that the vanes which sweep the coffee into your portafilter or cone leave a layer of grounds on the doser floor. If not cleaned out, they turn rancid. There are coffee web sites with fairly complicated instructions on how to modify the vanes to do a clean sweep. Here's the simple way:

Flip up the doser cover, and spin the vanes while pressing your finger lightly on the outer top edge of one vane. The vanes have enough play so the pressure brings one into light contact with the doser floor, sweeping 99% of the grounds into your waiting portafilter.

The coffee comes out in little logs or clumps. The coffee is weak- no crema.


HI
There are 2 things that can cause this. Either the burrs are bad and need replacing or you grinder is out of adjustment and you need to turn to a finer grind. If you have taken it apart, you are not adjusted close enough so your burrs can't grind fine enough. Readjust the burrs closer together.

I just got a used Rocky grinder. It works great but I read about


the grinding itself makes noise. if you have noise in empty spinning than you should consider changing bearings( 2 of them) in the motor.
during opening grinder pay attention to lower holder of burr which spins together with axis, try to be gentle with that part.
