Question about KitchenAid Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
How to sharpen burrs
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,

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.
