Yes, like a big coffee n00b, I was messing with the grind settings while the burrs were not running...
Now, even when I set it (and start finer, then adjust "down"/coarser), the right-hand adjustment will still want to move down, while it's running, without my touching it. Sometimes it will stay for one dose, and then start moving during the second basket I am filling; sometimes it will move towards the end of filling the first basket, after I have just set it.
Is there a way to tighten something, etc.? Did I break my Vario?

Same thing happened to me, but it was when the bottom setscrew was close to its tightest setting. I was having problems getting a fine enough grind. I finally sent it back to Barazta, who replaced the grind chamber. Took about 2 weeks.
