  • Grindz grinder cleaner...issue?

    Decided to clean all my coffee gear today and started with the grinder which all came to an abrupt halt. Opened a small packet of Grindz tipped the pellets into the hopper switched on machine within a couple of seconds the grinder seized up.

    Anyone else had a similar experience? :-?

      Thanks Attilio.

      Ipullled out the hopper emptied out the pellets to see if I could see what the problem could be, naturally didnt see anything untoward.

      Got a socket onto the locknut ( thanks for the tip Andy) to turn anticlockwise to see if I could loosen the blockage, the burr moved freely, turned clockwise same result. Plugged the grinder in, switched on and all good 8-)

      In future will definately set the grind to a much coarser setting.

      Am curious if anyone else has had this issue with grindz? (Not dissing the product just interested)

        I have used Grindz several times and have not had this problem. I do not adjust the settings at all. I may do that now as it has been identified by your problem.

              Oh, I never said I had read the instructions. (At least not beforehand). I really just did what my bro-in-law told me. I should add it was the only time he let me change grinder settings. Changing back was a task for more experienced souls.

                  That does make it a little harder doesnt it ?
                  At least the solution from the forum came quickly.

                  At least youve got me thinking I should pick some up soon.

                    Indeed, very helpful..... thanks all.

                    Well all my coffee gear all cleaned and the coffee tastes amazing, I think it might be a bit like after you wash your car and it goes faster

                      Glad nothing was broken.

                      ...another reason to buy good gear, a lesser grinder might had done a fair bit of damage to the shaft or carrier when the burrs stopped.
