    EMO480 - Quick cleaning question

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys.

    Ive tried to find the answer to this, but thought it would be quicker to start a new thread.....

    I got my new Sunbeam Grinder, and used it today for the 1st time grind setting 15.

    How often should I clean the grinder? The manual says every 3 weeks, however i noticed there was a build up of beans in the grinder - Should I be cleaning/brushing the grinder after every grind or is this over kill???

    It seems like a hassle to do this everytime - any suggestions appreciated

    That grinder holds a lot of grinds, as youve noticed.
    Theres cleaning and theres cleaning.

    I suggest a full clean every week.
    Do you want stale coffee grinds mixed in with your fresh?

    Where have you noticed the build up?
    For me it was around the exit chute.
    The best way I found to keep it as clear as possible was to slap the grinder on its back as it ground the last of the beans and to tap it up and down on the bench as well.

    The instruction book will guide you for a full clean.

    I suggest using it normally for a week and then pull it apart for a clean.
    Then youll know whats been happening as far as grounds build up.

    Yes i found alot of build up around the exit chute - quite alot i thought after 1 use.

    I will do the tap as u suggested, and yes I was banking on a full clean once per week anyway......
