    Mazzer Mini issue

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have just taken apart the Mazzer Minis doser chamber to clean and I cant make the plate that stays in one place above where the grinds exit stay in one place. I dont know the proper name for it. I mean the thin silver plate inbetween the spider. It looks like it has a little notch on it that corresponds to an inlet in the chamber but it doesnt seem to be catching and just spins round with the rest of the spider.
    Terrible explanation, I know. Can anyone advise?

    The notch is on the front
    Match the notch with the little burr on the inside front of the doser hopper

    You need to hold it in by pushing it down while turning the centre nut until it locks in & wont spring back

    Unless the notch is bent and not catching in the groove properly ?

    I think that must have been what was wrong KK. It was at a 90 degree angle, i.e vertical, and wasnt catching at all. So Ive bent it slightly and now it catches in the groove. Dont know if Ive done the right thing but it seems to be working.

    Thanks for replying, much appreciated.

    Its the right thing & the right way
    The notch should be flat as the rest of the plate

    You must have forced it in on the last occasion causing it to bend

    Glad all is well with the grinder again * ;)

    Does anyone now how much it costs to get a Mazzer Jolly serviced? My coffee grind feels warm think its the blades. Is this a costly exercise or can I do it myself?

    Its not hard to replace the burrs
    If you dont feel confident to do it yourself find a CS member close to you or a sponsor and have them changed

    Cost of burrs is approx $65

    AT the start of a run or after 10 min ?

    Where is teh grinder located and what heat sources are near...

    Heat can be generated by many things and for teh grinds to retain any heat etc; I would expect them to be almost steaming when they leave the chute ;D

    Because shortly afterwards they will loose heat due to their physical mass and lack of ability to retain said energy..

    Blunt beans usually show up in the lack of consistency and that you have to almost grind at true Zero... Further more; A quick inspect and a finger nail will clearly demonstrate if they are Dull or BLUNT.
