Well, I decided my Mazzer was way overdue for a cleaning. I haven't cleaned it since I got it a year ago (a lot of that time it was admittedly in storage).. So before I ground any coffee from my Behmor, I vacuumed it out with the corner attachment of my vacuum. (Big long thing with the little rectangle on the end.) All was well and good, but that metal thing was in the way to get to the chute. I unscrewed the two screws visible at the top of the hopper to remove it and there was quite a build-up in the chute, which I vacuumed out. Anything else I can do to clean it, other than running that Grindz stuff, or Minute Rice, through it? And on a side note, does anyone know what that metal thing is supposed to do? My best guess is its for static discharge of the grounds...
With my Majors I every few months actually remove the grind adjustment collar and remove the top burr carrier and remove the burrs(careful not to lose springs). Grounds get caked under and around the burrs and are not removed by simply blowing out or running grindz through it. I also clean the springs and spring channels to keep even pressures on the floating top carrier. On Nov 23, 2007 8:38 PM, Steve wrote: <Snip>

Being that your posting on this list the "freak" issue is probably too late. But don't worry here, your not alone! On Nov 24, 2007 1:39 PM, Steve wrote: <Snip>
