So, I stupidly nocked my Maestro over, and now the burrs begin rubbing around notch 20. I opened it up but could not see any issues. The grinder wasn't running when it fell over... Should I try running coffee through and see how fine I can get it without rubbing, or would that run the risk of locking it up? Perhaps the grounds will keep it more centered and avoid the issue.

Here is a video of the issue: Maestro Video.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!

Email or call Baratza.  Did you try removing the burrs, like cleaning, and reassemble?

Thanks for the quick response. I did clean them, not very thoroughly though. I'll go back and clean them again. As fas as I can tell from the manual, the lower burr is not removable?

I bought it second-hand so I am hesitant to call Baratza. Do you think it would still be worth the call?

On the Preciso the central burr is removable, but that will not help.  Not sure if you have the same, but the center is on a shaft, an extension of the drive.  the centering does not appear adjustable.  It reverse threads on.  I only meant that if you went through a quick burr removal, you would notice broken or misaligned parts, not that cleaning wouild fix it.
