  • Sunbeam em0480 problems

    Hi i recently got a sunbeam emo480 and I cant notice a difference between the finest and most coarse grind. Should I be able to? When I take off the bean hopper and adjust the grind coarse ness the burrs do not move

      Have you made sure that you have put the grinder together properly? its a common catch for people to put the burr and collar on in the wrong order

        Rather then starting a new topic, my problem is similar, but I might be able to help the original poster.  Firstly, the instruction manual with the em0480 is not really clear as to how to put the machine together.  I struggled with this.  I found this video of a guy reassembling his after cleaning, which might help if your problem is not quite having it assembled right

        Apologies its not an active link, apparently I need to post more then 5 times before that can happen.

        My problem:
        I have had my em0480 for 18 months and usually grind a single shot each day for my morning coffee.  I decided to give it the first clean the other day, but similarly had troubles putting it back together.  Now I cant get my grind fine enough, even on the finest setting.  I did notice that one of the ears on the top burr, has snapped off (might of happened when I was diassembling or being a bit forceful when trying to reassemble).

        My guess is that this is my problem with not getting a fine grind as what I can tell, when you adjust the grind setting, the ears screw the top burr closer down to the bottom burr and with one missing, it just cant screw tight enough.

        The other reason may be that as I cleaned the machine for the first time, this might have highlighted the burr wear, which means that I need to add a spacer under the bottom burr.

        I really dont have much of an idea as to the workings of the machines, so any opinions or guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.  (I am very jittery without my coffee this morning).
