Hi There, just wondering if anyone out there has the Sunbeam EM0440 grinder? It came bundled with a EM6910 which I recently purchased. Love the coffee machine but the grinder is really frustrating. I can not get the grind fine enough to pour a decent shot. All I am doing is wasting some really good beans. Any advice would be welcome.
Much like the EM0480, you will probaby need a shim set to get the grinder fine enough. These are basically very thin metal washers that sit underneath the bottom grinding burr and lift it up slightly. If you contact Sunbeam direct, they will often send you two or three for no charge. And installing them is easy, and will allow you to learn your way around your grinder.
Beat of luck,
IIRC there is a recent thread about the 440. I have a 450 and a 480 but they are slightly different in that the top burr is a removable piece. David8 has it right - when it won't grind fine enough you need the shims.
Thanks guys. Will contact Sunbeam next week.
