  1. Followed Dave’s instructions and burrs are unmarked. Very light scoring to sweep arm where lower burr sits on top - small amount and not even sure it was due to this incident. Everything ok, I’m a lucky boy - for your enjoyment here’s a picture of me just after checking..... you can see how happy i am. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ha ha extreme muppetry - I cant deny Thanks Dave - I shall do this Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Exactly - I’m really looking for advice on how to check I suppose. Never taken the bottom burrs out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Was performing monthly clean out of the niche and didn’t realise that when I replaced the upper burr, one of the springs had popped out and settled in to the grinding chamber. I didn’t notice and could only see that for some reason the upper burr wasn’t moving up and down as it should when I adjusted with the screw top in normal way. So in true muppet style I turned it on (without any beans in) to see if all was ok. It made a strange noise though not one that sounded like metal was touching the burrs.... Anyway turned it off after only 2 or 3 seconds and inspected. I then found the end of the spring caught in under the lower burr (one that doesn’t remove) and around 2mm of the end of it bent and trapped underneath it. It removed reasonably easily and was bent as described. I replaced it with one of the spares and all seems ok. I was wondering if those more experienced could advise if this sort of school boy error is likely to have caused bearing, burr, alignment, motor problems? I could take pictures though not sure really what of. Operates fine though I wouldn’t notice if alignment is out now or the burrs have chipped a bit etc - I’m paranoid.

  8. I’ve just cleaned the water tank on my Vesuvius for the first time in 9 months! Sorry Dave.... your post elsewhere reminded me. Anyway bit if a faff as mine is under a countertop and I didn’t want to move it out. Got there in the end though just wanted to check the water pickup tube end (with the little filter on the end) is ok nestled in the bottom corner of the tank when it’s put back in place? There’s a little circular plastic protrusion in the bottom of the tank and wanted to check it not supposed to settle in there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
