Breville Smart grinder pro problem
« on: October 12, 2017, 02:02:05 PM »
I have a gaggia classic so i bought breville smart grinder pro from ebay.
I can send link later to expose this selle.
What i bought is a defective smart grinder pro.

The issue is there no grinds coming out when the adjustment is set to 50 and below grind settings. My forst guess is the machine might be clogged so i strip clean the machine upto its impeller and lower burrs. I also checked the passage of the grounds from bellow. Vacc cleaned and everyting.

Problem still exist, only at settings 60 which is the coarser which the grounds can go down, i tried adjusting the upper burr for extra coarse and extra fine bit still fail.

What you think is need to be replace by the grinder?
Is it the upper burr or lower burr?
I am sure impeller is not the issue because its steel ad i can see it rotating upon testing.
Or is it the whole grinding assembly should be replaced?

I have a SG Pro so maybe I can compare the two if you would like. 
What do you think about taking the hopper off and taking some pictures of the burrs in and out of the unit?  Maybe take a pic of the bottom of the hopper and anything else you can think of.  I'll compare them to mine and see if there is a difference.
