Topic: Taking apart a Mazzer Major Doser(to clean) (3 msgs / 115 lines)
1) From: Ron Feroni
Hello all,
 =
       As I'm expecting Anita to show up tommorrow I need to get my Mazzer =
Major in shape.  It's been sitting mostly idle in the basement for a few ye=
ars( I know, I know).  I'm working on a doserless modification but in the m=
ean-time I need to get the doser cleaned up.  So...
 =
       What I need to do is seperate the 'star' piece (in the bottom that s=
pins and actually doses the coffee) from the bottom of the doser.  I'm not =
sure if it will just spin off(I've tried but don't want to pry too much)or =
if I have to undo the long threaded bolt that it's on.  If the bolt has to =
come out then that means I need to get that keyway out, and that is where I=
'm a little stumped.  If anyone can figure out what I'm talking about would=
 appreciate some advice.
 =
Thanks,

Thanks for the pic but it's not showing what I really need to see.  There i=
s this little keyway that I think needs to come out in order to turn the bo=
lt.  The keyway is acting as a stop for the bolt head i.e...the keyway does=
n't let the bolt turn.
 =
I'm sure I can get it out, just need a little more time with it.  Started g=
etting tired while working on it and I know enough to walk away when that h=
appens.  Those situations have cost me much in the past!  =
