  • Compak K3 Touch HELP needed

    Hi all I have a Isomac Tea II and Compak K3 touch at work. We use about a kilo of beans a week. Of late I cannot seem to get the grind right. I have cleaned the burrs they appear to be ok but im not sure. Here's what I know.

    1-I adjust the burrs with no beans in so the burrs touch and back off a bit
    2-This morning i tried this to no avail, grind still coarse. I tried 16-18 & 20gram shots and still ran quick
    3-Burrs are touching slightly and grind is still coarse that the shot runs quick with blonding
    I always use fresh beans from Merlo or Di Bella

    Could the burrs need changing?

    I run a Mazzer mini at home and when I adjust the grind to the burrs kissing and back off there's a difference.

    Hi Noel,

    When you adjust the grinder to the finer setting, do find the shots running slower or still fast?

    What is the Roasted On Date on the bean packet?

      Hi Noel

      If you dial it close so that the burrs lightly kiss, then press down on the back of the adjuster, does the touching sound stop?
