    Compak K3T went crazy

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    OK, after 6 years of faithful service, my grinder all of a sudden, spins but does not cut any beans, which is weird. Upon taking out the burr, seems ok.......put it back, and it grinds super coarse and that's pretty much it, even if I set to the finest. It does not go fine anymore.
    What is happening ?

    Tempted to take it to service/repair, but hoping to DIY fix to save some $$.

    Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.......save me from instant coffee !

    Service time....You will find that the burrs are restricted in their travel- most likely due to coffee fouling the threads and limiting movement. You may also have a limiting screw installed which can halt travel. It's unlikely that there is anything wrong with the grinder other than the need for some TLC.
