    K3 Problems

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive pulled the burrs off, cleaned, and replaced. It seems to be working a little better. However...

    1) Theres still a fair amount of noise (squeaking etc.) that sounds like its out of balance.

    2) It also stopped grinding again (though the burrs were moving) when I was adjusting the burr carrier to a finer level. This seems to have rectified itself, but is a bit worrying.

    3) I also noticed that the washer under the brass centre nut was off centre. Is it supposed to be this way to throw the beans out or is it supposed to be centred? Im suspecting that this may be a cause of the problems?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Kit

    Thanks guys.

    A good cleaning and making sure I dont try to grind nano-particles seems to have done the trick. ;)
