    Wow, super clear directions. I replaced burr set, replaced pin and no longer the hunk of junk I purchased on eBay. Beautiful grind. I'm keeping my old set for a "just in case" event. This A-9 manufactured about 2006; my 2003 that I bought retail, has never malfunctioned, used daily. Thank you!!

    BYW, the structure of my two machines are different and in asking for advice, I found it's important to state the model # as a "1" is added after the color designation on the newer models, circa 2006.

You simply can not sharpen it.
The grinding is not based on actual cutting, but more like crushing. The "knives" are slightly conical pair and you adjust the grain size of the ground coffee by adjusting the space between the two parts.
If it is actually damaged you have to replace it, but if you have been grinding very "oily" beans there might be some left over stuck into the burrs. Then you need to clean it by taking the grinder apart and brush the knives with a stiff brush - do not use soap or water. A stiff toothbrush is just ideal for this.
All the best,
Villi

Motor quit running


I recently found one and it wouldn't turn so I took off the top burr and it would turn on so I would start with a thorough cleaning of the burrs then check the setting of the burrs, if they are too close the they wont allow the motor to run.
Next if the motor runs but the burrs don't turn it would be a sheared shear pin which is designed to shear in case a pebble got in the coffee before damage could occur
Third worn motor brushes. My motor was intermittent and found the brushes down to nothing. Now I am looking for new ones

How do I clean the inside of the coffee grinder kitchenaid model A-9


Instructions Things you need
  • Soapy water
  • Screwdriver
  • Burr cleaning brush
  • Damp cloth

1 Turn off your KitchenAid coffee grinder and unplug it from the socket.
This reduces the risk of injury while cleaning the appliance.

2 Turn the bean hopper, located at the top of the grinder, counter- clockwise and remove it from the appliance.

3 Slide the coffee bin toward you to remove it from the grinder.

4 Wash the hopper, hopper lid and the coffee bin in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry these parts after cleaning.

5 Locate the grind control dial on the front of your KitchenAid coffee grinder. Screws are located to the left and right of this dial.

6 Turn the screws counter-clockwise with a flat head screwdriver to remove them from the grinder.

7 Pull the entire faceplate assembly gently toward you and out of the KitchenAid coffee grinder. The faceplate assembly is attached to the back of the grind control knob.

8 Pull out the burr shaft assembly, which is right behind the faceplate assembly.

9 Brush the burr shaft assembly with the burr-cleaning brush included with your KitchenAid coffee grinder to remove any debris or remaining grinds.

10 Reassemble the KitchenAid coffee grinder by returning the burr shaft assembly and faceplate assembly to the appliance. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to hold the assemblies in place.

11 Wipe down the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth.

12 Return the clean coffee bin, hopper and hopper lid to your clean KitchenAid coffee grinder.

This is a set screw. You need to take this out.
You can access this to either clean the burr
grinding wheel. Maybe this needs changed.
