    Breville BCG450 not turning on or doing anything?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just tried using the unit and its not turning on at all. Does not have an ON/OFF switch so guessing its the earlier models? (purchased 2 years ago)

    Last I used it was 4-5 months ago and was working perfectly. I usually empty the beans or contents by tipping the whole machine over bin with some gentle smacks.


    Pretty sure Ive put everything back the right way etc but its not doing anything at all when I press the start button.


    Has this happened to others? What did you do?

    I cant imagine the motor or whatever having seized....

    Ideas?

    Is the hopper in correctly? There is a safety cutout switch to prevent the grinder operating if the hopper is not in place. Check for bits of bean stopping it turning all the way.

    As far as I can tell the hopper is in right. I matched the words "ALIGN" on both hopper and grinder and it appears to fit right in and turns fine and appears to be locked in place with no room for wiggling etc.

    is the grind container in place properly? there's a safety switch that's closed when the container is inserted, just check that it's ok. you can test it manually, just press on it with your finger or something, you should hear it click.
