  10. yes am so sorry I have not been back on the forum as I have been having quite a 'tough' time in my life (I know, no excuses!) let me post some photos for you, but the machine is in excellent condition thanks systemic Kid for the tag, helped
  11. Hi, I bought this well kept second hand Quest M3 (230v model) off DaveCUK, it is a great little roaster and was very happy to buy it off him however due to personal circumstances I am not really making use of it and I am also in need to sell some equipment/things I have in the house. It has a spare heater element just in case, I can also give you 3kg of green beans to get you started. Also with it come accessories (LED light to look at bean colour, mains adaptor to control heat/power via volts rather than with the dial on machine, wooden spatula, tray for receiving roasted beans, cleaning brush, some coffee bags and a 'hair straightener' to seal the bags with, works wonders). For collection only (surrey/kent borders near jct 6 of M25) asking £600 for it, good deal considering it would probably cost £1000 at least to get it imported and this is the 230v model, also the original version with thicker drum.... much better! Photos coming later by tomorrow latest, thanks
  12. Yes Jeebsy, that is 'exactly' where the 3 beans were. Guess it was to be expected not opening up the burrs for a good ten months :D (though I must say they looked quite clean!)
  13. thank you, I kind of 'guessed' at the end I turned the dialling knob all the way until the bottom burr was quite high, then put the top burr on, but the 'casing' it is screwed on was not touching the machine, so turned the dialling knob until this 'just' touched the machine (don't know if I am making any sense without a video/photo), put it all together again and put the grinder on 2.5 where I used to have it to do my coffee with and it seems 'ok'/similar to what i used to have, so must have done something right the 3 beans were stuck in the middle of the burrs not 'in' the burrs themselves, I think this is a common thing on the eureka 75e which is dealt with the regular cleaning routine when you take burrs apart etc, however I've been guilty of cleaning this grinder with 'beanz' so far and never took it apart, mainly because I could never undo the screws they were so tight! Tonight I got my neighbour over to try, he struggled a lot to undo screws but did eventually now I've done it back up not so tight so that I can do it myself in future on a weekly basis (as I go through 1kg of coffee a week on my own)
  14. Hi my eureka 75e started playing up lately, at no notice whatsoever the burrs will not turn at all (or grind at all) at first 'opening up' the burrs from setting 2 to 9 and then back to 2 would do the trick, then today it did not. I turned the settings knob so much I lost count of how many times so I ended up opening up the thing now, got the top burr off, gave it a good clean, there was 3 coffee beans stuck in there (maybe they caused the issue to begin with), but now because my 'dialler' has been turned so many times I don't know how to align the burrs to '0' does that make sense? I can't remember if I had a manual nor where it is if I had it bella barista website is down/not responding, was going to look in there if they had a PDF of the manual no youtube videos that I can find how do I do it? I am desperate for a coffee :D thank you so much
  15. oh gawd what is this guy on? (the guy from Made by Knock not simonm23 of course!) he is so inconsistent it's unbelievable, he can be superquick in replying one day then 'ignores you' the next 2 months! I tried to buy one of his tampers last year, but I gave up and asked my credit card provider to refund me the money after 3 months of him having my money but not replying to any emails/twitter/facebook messages, like I did not exist at all. Now 3 months is pretty long in my book, so if he was busy or sick must have been quite considerable.....
  16. well, last July I ordered a tamper which was in stock....waited a good 3 months then filed a dispute via my credit card and got my money back as they never bothered to reply to my messages (facebook/twitter included!!)
  17. @Rob666 could I also have a code please? I have already clicked on banner on post N1 and am waiting to place my first order of green beans thank you so much
