    EM0480 coarse grind after cleaning

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I pulled my EM0480 apart to clean it, including unscrewing the cover on top of the bottom burr and cleaning the sweapers etc. I have done this before with out problem, but this time after I put it all back together the grind is really really corse, - 2-3mm (looks like maccona instant coffee)

    I read the other most recent post about corse ginds on an EM0480, and someone mentioned making sure the top burr basket is correclty aligned. Well the mark as worn off my basket - though it does only seem to drop in properly in one position. Can anyone tell me where the mark is releative to the little wire handle or perhaps post a pic?

    Does it just push stright down, or should it also turn a little to lock in?

    Also as mentioned in the previous topic - I looked for the burrs moving in relation to each other when I turn the dial - I cant see any movement.

    Has anyone had this problem on re-assembly before - any clues on what I might have done wrong and how to address it?

    I havent checked the washers under the bottom burr as it was previously grinding OK.

    Thanks in advance for any trouble shooting suggestions you can provide.

    That suggests that the top burr is not incorrectly..

    Re: EM0480 coarse grind after cleaning

    i have had the exact same issue with mine. i found disassemble and reassemble fixed the issue, and also found that i hadnt fitted the top burr correctly. now when i clean it and put the top half back on i push the top burr into the housing just before i turn it back to the setting area just to make sure its seated and it works ok every time now.
    i hope this helps :D

    Yup me too. You just move the top burr basket around until it slots down into position.

    Thanks - this was really helpful. I had the exact same problem because the white mark had worn of. Twisting around anti clockwise until it sort of screwed in seemed to do the trick.
