  • Sunday morning crisis

    Got up this morning, a bite to eat and a coffee beckoned before heading out to church. Portafilter against the button on the grinder...not a sound. Check power leads, all as they should be. Check switch on side of machine...as it should be. Keep pressing button, hoping against hope that it is just a bad dream and the grinder will growl into life.

    About 5 minutes later resign myself to the fact that it is an ex grinder. It has ceased to be. He has shuffled off his mortal coil and gone to meet his maker. e is pushin up the daisies. e is an ex grinder.

    Checked the paperwork from when I got it off the bay. Still under warranty, but the original purchaser hadnt bothered to send in relevant paperwork to register for warranty. Going to give Sunbeam a call Tuesday ( public holiday on top of it all!!), and see how we go.

    Three days and counting before I can have a decent coffee. Might have to look at one of those nifty little hand grinders as a back up once Im back on night shift ( or tax return, which ever comes first).

    Make sure the Hopper is seated correctly...

    I would suggest the hopper is not seated correctly and or a bit of dust has crept in... A 5 min fix..

    Have yet to see one of these unit die..

      You wouldnt believe it. Something tweaked my thoughts this morning to give it another shot. Did not touch a thing, walked up, pressed the button...... ;D we have coffee again. Got me stuffed...didnt do anything to it, just pressed the button again. Not that Im complaining mind.
