Well, this afternoon, I took a closer look at the upper burr carrier, and I also found a manual/owners guide for the Compak K5. The closer look at the burr carrier made me look closely at the owners guide. It seems the burr carrier is threaded and that the carrier needs to be turned clockwise in order to unscrew the carrier from the chassis. I tried lapping with a hammer around the sides of the burr carrier, and inserted a flat head screw driver into one of the three slots in the burr carrier, tapped the screw driver with my hammer, but it is still not budging.
In a purely mechanical world where I wasnt worried about contaminted the food, I would squirt a little of WD-40 or other lubricant into the threads and try again. What do I do here?
I am desperate now, I have to justify the purchase to a significant other who thinks Im crazy.
