Inspecting and Repairing an Espresso Grinder

Thanks for your electrical question Rob. It is very possibly that the motor is jammed where something is preventing the motor from spinning and the fuse is breaking to protect the motor from burning up. The first thing is to unplug the unit and carefully inspect any external moving parts such as the grinder blade or mechanism. If all the external parts appear to be normal then I would unplug the unit and carefully disassemble it so I could clean and inspect the moving parts looking for the cause which is preventing the motor to spin freely. I have found that using a one inch horsehair paintbrush is very helpful when cleaning appliances such as this. It should be noted that I do not use a nylon paint brush simply because nylon can produce static electricity which could damage any electronic circuitry which is so commonly found with most home modern appliances.
