• If the bean hopper has not been locked into position, ‘LOCK BEAN HOPPER’ will be displayed on the LCD screen, disabling the operation of the grinder for safety.
  • The finer the grind setting, the longer it takes to grind a certain amount of coffee. For example, on a very coarse setting, the machine will grind more coffee in 30 seconds then on a finer setting.
  • If the Grind Size Dial is tight, empty then replace the bean hopper. Once replaced, without beans in it, briefly run the grinder empty and turn the grind size dial.
  • It is normal for the correct amount of coffee to appear overfilled in your portafilter. Untamped coffee is three times the volume of tamped coffee.
  • Never let the ground coffee exceed the ‘MAX’ mark on the grinds container. Too much coffee in the grinds container can back up into the grind outlet and if grinding continues in that circumstance, this can result in the motor burning out.
  • Before removing the grinds container, tap the grinder a few times. This will help relieve some of the static build-up which occurs when grinding.
  • The grinder will automatically enter ‘Stand By’ mode if not used after 5 minutes. To reactivate the machine while in ‘Stand By’ mode, press any button on the grinder control panel
  • When adjusting the strength or weakness of the grind, please note that each bar on that scale is an adjustment of about 5% volume. One bar to the right of center is +5% in volume of coffee grounds and one bar to the left of center is -5% in volume.
