Eureka Mignon Deep Clean

Recommended Posts

So having just done this today, I thought I would post some pictures to help folk out. I (after some fiddling and wondering) discovered the screw behind the badge having basically unmounted most of the grinder first (doh!) thinking the release screw must be behind it. 

Photos Below:

- Remove Burr Cover (top), remove the hopper screw (shown) to access the third screw

- Exposed bottom burr

- Removed bottom burr (unscrew and prise out, secure centre (gold) nut with spanner to brace against). I did not show the top burr as it's pretty self explanatory

- I had also removed the bottom to try and work out how to remove the faceplate. Two views of that

Once I worked out that I had to remove the badge to remove the chute I then did so. Some further pics:

- Badge (you can see it just clips on, easy to remove with fingernail)

- Screw that it exposes

- Removed front

- Chute Insert - needed a good clean

- Chute view - also needed a good clean

The chute insert blocks the top holes. I am told (a while back by Conte Valero) that this is to prevent partially ground coffee going down the chute. 

Burrs replaced and all cleaned and back together. 

As an aside I have noticed that when the burrs are blunt, this chute blocks more readily and (particularly with lighter roast coffee) the motor is not powerful enough to drive blunt burrs through and this then blocks the chute and jams the grinder
