Question about Pasquini Moka Coffee Grinder
I unscrewed the top burr and cleaned it out the best I could. Could I be placing the bean bin on top incorrectly? When I hit rocker switch the burr turns just for an instant, then jams again. Can you advise on this?
Possible that you installed something incorrectly but I don't think so. It sounds like you're not after the right problem. My guess would be that some bean shards got into the motor or some other place. Most of the motors used on these machines are geared down so that they make more torque and lower speed. Thus...the motor itself is actually quite weak. That's why it is jamming.
What I would start with: take the unit apart as much as you can...by taking out the burr, the receiver cup and all that. Turn the unit over and tap it onto a newspaper covered table with some bit of force. Do it a couple of times. That may fix it. If not, you'll have to disassemble it and find the item jamming it up. Be sure the unit is unplugged when handling it. It is possible that some of the screws are non-tamper. You can get the right bits at the hardware store. Be sure to tighten all screws when you're done.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
