My EK43 has stopped working and I'm pretty gutted. Here's what happened: - The EK has been working fine since I've got it (second hand). Exceptions have been that occasionally the on/off switch has stuck. - Last night I ground 15g for a kalitta with no problems. - The next dose I try to grind, I flick on the switch but nothing happens. - I took the pre-breaker off in-case there was a jam, but nothing. - I turn on and get nothing, when I click the off button; I get a small amount of spin, as if there's energy getting in there somewhere. - I've tried pushing in the current overload switch, but that doesn't resolve the problem. - I left it off all night in-case its the thermal switch, no luck. - I've tried praying to the coffee gods, but no luck there either. My initial thought (also suggested by @Xpenno on instagram), is that the on/off switch needs replacing. Does anyone have a recommendation on how I could test it to see if its the trouble maker? It's an expensive part so I'd like to get a degree of confidence before I cough up. The EK43 also has a couple of capacitors in the base. Does anyone who's opened up these grinders before know if they need discharging before I get stuck in? Any advice greatfully received, hopefully it'll be an easy one.
