    Mazzer Superjolly repairs

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have just moved and got my super jolly into the cold light of day and realised that it could really do with a disassembly and thorough clean as there is a significant amount of coffee oils and dust in all the corners. My question is, I need to take off the doser, but I am concerned if I remove it I will need to take apart the entire machine to get it back on. I have loosened the bolts but it feels like there are nuts inside the body that are going to fall off, so I have lost my nerve and tightened them back up. Has anyone done this or found a service manual, or web site explaining how?

    There are no nuts inside the grinder that will fall off if you take the doser off.

    Good luck

    Indeed -- as I just this afternoon found out with my MM, you have to take the base off to get at the nuts on the other end of the PF-fork screws. Which youre not supposed to do, otherwise why would they have used one of those "anti-tamper" weird-head screws to hold it on?

    Well, nothings anti-tamper round here -- out came the box of weird-head screwdriver bits, and off it came.

    Think Ill leave the doser well alone, though. Though theres a description of removing the SJ doser here -- looks pretty simple.

    My PF fork is held on with regular slot head bolts.
    but my doser is held on with hex drive thumb screws.
    Thanks for the links and the info guys, I will be pulling it apart the first chance I get,

    Ok so I went to pull the doser off and found that I have to disconnect the wires from the auto shot off thing. Any suggestions as to the easiest way to do this? and can / should it be disconnected permanently? I have never let the machine run until the doser is that full that it cuts out.

    Gday Aaron,

    If you want to permanently remove the "Auto Shut-Off", then the following general advice should work OK.

    After youve removed the Auto Shut-Off mechanism/housing, these wires need to be joined back together. The method you use to do this probably depends how they were previously connected to the Switch...... if standard cable lugs were used, then a short screw with nut and washers will do the trick; if spade lugs (the push on type) were used you can get joiners of all descriptions from Jaycar and DSE, etc; or, you could just dispense with connectors altogether and solder the two wires back together (much neater in my opinion).

    After youve done this, the join will need to be insulated. I dont recommend the use of insulating tape for this; much better to use a couple of layers of "Heat-Shrink" tubing for this purpose as its much more durable than tape. You can grab this from DSE or Jaycar too. Depending on how youve made the connection, there are different methods of applying the Heat-Shrink so as to end up with a very neat and professional finish.

    All you need to do then is hide the joined cables inside the body of the grinder away from anything that might catch or harm the cables in any way. After youve got everything cleaned up and back together, it should look as though that is how its always been..... Sans Auto Shut-Off. :)

    Cheers,
    Mal.
