My normal response is to call Baratza, but from reading your posts, you know that trick. It is the weekend.
As you know, that is the finest calibration, so, that may not be the problem. I would look at a couple of the other adjustment troubleshooting threads. Could the ring have come unglued? Is the machine cleaned and the burr seated all the way? There are a couple of other troubleshooting guides on grinding.

For all having trouble, check the ring around the upper burr. Is there a crack ? If so, it needs to be replaced (free) and your problems may be over. Referring back to the OP, I seriously doubt anyone could get a 25 second shot, let alone a GOOD TASTING 25 second shot from a blade grinder. I Just don't. Sorry.
BTW, to all, PLEASE, whenever adjusting your grind finer with beans in the hopper, 3 beans or 300, ALWAYS run the grinder.

If there are beans then you must run to go finer, and that seems to mean that you are tossing what comes out as a mixed grind. I think that if you are having trouble, I would dump the hopper and then pulse the grinder and clean it out, then adjust running or not. In practice I run it dry, pulse, adjust, pulse, and then use it. I guess the extra pulse is to assure that it is clear and running freely.

Best, not sure, but it works. I believe that if you want to adjust it with beans in, then you must adjust finer while running and I find that a pain. I could sometimes use another hand, and then there is still the grinds generated while you are adjusting.
