Tips and Troubleshooting

Should a bean become stuck in the grinding mechanism, you may easily fix this yourself.

  1. Adjust the grind to a coarser degree. Turn the grind adjuster counter-clockwise by two full turns.
  2. Press the grinding button and grind coffee. The stuck beans should now come loose.
  3. Re-adjust the grind.

In case the grind setting of your grinder changes autonomously after many grinding procedures, it is most likely that vibrations during grinding have caused the bracket of the grind level adjuster to become loose. Please proceed as follows to correct the problem:

  1. Switch the grinder off and unplug the electrical cord.
  2. Loose the screw of the adjustment of the grinding level (1,5 mm Allen wrench).
  3. Loosen both screws that are, or were, holding the grind adjustment bracket (2.5mm Allen wrench).
  4. Position the bracket as close to the gear wheel as possible and tighten both screws again.
  5. Tighten the screw of the adjustment of the grinding level again.
