    It's ok to adjust coarser while not running, but you should avoid tightening up the grind when there are beans in the hopper and the motor isn't running because you then squish bits of bean between the burrs. This could leadto jamming and uneven stress on the burrs/bearings/motor.

    For this reason, I take off the top burr and clean burrs and chamber every so often (every time I change bean plus maybe once a month ish when the hopper is empty). Then I adjust it to slightly tighter than I expect to need, drop the beans in and try to dial in going coarser. Any subsequent adjustment towards finer is made in very small increments (anyway) and always done while motor is running.
    Really helpful, thanks for the adicice.

    one question when you say running, do you mean initiating a grind as you adjust or just turned on?

    I mean with the burrs spinning, so that it doesn't demand a big heap of torque to start with beans in the burrs. So, set double to 5 seconds or whatever you need, start the grinding and try to make your adjustment before they stop.

    I thought that was the case, thanks for clarifying
