3. Clean out the burr chamber, both burrs and the chute (pointed out with the red arrow) to completely clear the grinder. The use of a zip tie or some other small implement can help clear out the chute, as grinds can stick at the entrance to it. Vacuum up any loose grounds.

9. Reassemble the grinder and complete the Dial-In process.
*NOTE: When reassembling the grinder, make sure grind setting dial is neither too coarse or too fine; too far in either direction can cause the grinder to jam. If this does happen, simply adjust the grind setting until the motor spins freely.
