Question about Gaggia MDF Electric Burr Grinder
The top canister is supposed to rotate to adjust the grind, but it has locked and won't turn. Is there a catch I need to find?...or, a simple way to disassemble it?
It could well be gummed up with years of coffee bean residue
Very simple to take apart. There are two screws holding the cannister. They are hidden under 5mm round rubber covers that you have to pry off. Then remove the two screws holding the plastic cover. Mark the position of the numbered dial relative to the brass burr assembly then remove it. Once exposed, you should be able to figure out why it is locked. Scrape away as much gunk as you can.

Take it all apart. You will find the big brass screw is full of fine ground coffee. Clean it carefully and put back together. I had this problem a year ago and cleaned it and added new burrs. Works like new!

Did you try turning it while the motor is running?
