Sounds like the grinder is blocked. Set the grinder to the coarsest setting (largest number) and try a few more times. If still no luck then vacuum out all the beans, run the grinder again a couple of times and then add a small amount of fresh beans (not from a fridge or freezer as these will be moist and can cause problems) and try making coffee again. If after a few tries it still doesn't work then you will either have to remove the top grinder burr and clean both burrs (not recommended unless you are bit of a handy person) or you could try vacuuming out the beans again and letting the grinder dry out for a while (although unlikely, it could be wet from water spillage). Good luck hope this helps.

It says that coffee bin is low but it is full


If it's the beans empty fault the grinder requires to be removed and cleaned out.
The problem is the coffee compacts blocking the dump chute.

My gaggia platinum is showing an out of service error code [1] and i don't know what to do. Called the service centre all i get is "leave a message".


On my machine remove water tank, remove crip / coffee bin, remove mach and wash. Tip machine on its side (turned off) using a small screw driver go around the coffee grinder and clear it completly, you will need a touch. Re assemble. First run with no beans and wait for the fill bean message, fill with beans off you go. Its only happend twice both with cheap beans

My cuisinart burr coffee grinder will not turn on


This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.

Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)

Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.

Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.

You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.

Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.

Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(

If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!

I bought new green coffee beans recently, roasted it myself and wanted to use it in the machine but the grinder gets stuck and won't turn. The new beans are harder and smaller than the type I used to have....


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).
