Mignon MK2 Clicking and not spinning

Recommended Posts

So my mignon recently stopped grinding so I removed the top cover and removed the excess grounds from the burrs and chute but now the lower burr does move freely when I move it with my hand but when I press the grind button all that’s happening is I’m getting a clicking noise with no movement If the burrs?

 

ant y suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks

Check the electronic board and starting capacitor.

If it will not spin freely by hand it suggests possibly something stuck / catching below the lower burr carrier. Can you hear anything catching when you try to turn?

Remove the lower burr and carrier, look for wedged bean or foreign object . If nothing there and still not turning freely there is something catching on motor or bearing's

ok looks like the first thing that was an issue was the power light was flickering so an adjustment of the cable started it again, it was still jamming up after a a few grams of beans through the hopper so I removed the lower burr and there was quite a bit of grounds underneath and what looked like a lot of grounds blocking the chute so all cleaned out and backtogether and working again 👍
