Hello there,

I've got a Compak K3 grinder which I love very much.

Recently, whilst adjusting the grind, the grinder suddenly stopped shooting out ground coffee. That seemed odd, particularly because I was adjusting to a coarser setting when it happened.

I disassembled the thing down to the burrs to cleaned it using a damp cloth and pressurized air , and after reassembly, it can only grind really coarse. I mean big chunks of beans!

What has happened?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Marius

I fixed it.

The problem was that there was a stopping screw fastened in the wrong place acting as an end stop which prevented sufficient adjustment.

Thanks.M
