    Strange noises from Rocky...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive recently been experimenting with different grind settings on Rocky for plunger coffee. This morning I set Rocky at a grind setting of 40 (my burrs touch at a setting of 2) and it seems to be about right for that brewing method.

    However, Ive noticed when I ran Rocky at 40 (without any beans) it made a noise which sounded very much like the burrs just beginning to touch... which seems to me impossible given my burrs touch at 2 as previously mentioned.

    Any ideas what could be causing this noise and should I be concerned?

    how much movement is in the hopper/top burr at a setting of 40? does the noise change pitch/sound when you wiggle the hopper?

    CS, did the noise go away eventually? I noticed a similar sound the other day when my beans ran out. I was just clearing the grinder out and a few beans must have been bouncing around in there because it stopped after about 30 secs. The noise did sound just like the chirping noise of the burrs touching. Im pretty sure the burrs were not touching because I was about +5 above true zero.

    WSully,

    Didnt get much of a chance to look at it properly last night... Very briefly checked it again and am starting to wonder whether the noise I was hearing was just a loose bean rattling around in the grinding mechanism... Will have a closer look (hopefully tonight) and report back in due course.

    CS
