Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

I would suspect a log in the outlet shute where it goes into the grinds hopper. Clean it out and then turn the hopper to the coarsest setting to clean it out all together. Coarse grinds are a very good cleaner.

How to adjust new baratza maestro plus I had a solis maestro previously that, when dialed all the way up, did produce a grind fine enough for a good espresso, but this new machine does not. I have taken...


I, just adjusted the the solis 167; first remove the Bean container by turning counter clockwise and the pull straight up) then remove the timer dialer (time/quantity control), then remove the cover by lifting the locking tabs (2 slots each side) with a flat screw driver. Once you removed the cover. Pull straight up the the white ring with the metal cup. Now you see a dark ring which is clicked on the with unit. When you look under the ring you an see little holes all along the white unit (that's important because you need to mark your old position). After marking the thr ring on the white unit, pull off the the dark ring by slowly pulling the ring outwards just on 2 places on the ring where there an small hole in the ring (there are 4 holes). When you turn the ring you will see 2 nobs, now place back the ring with the nobs 2 places further(clockwise) than the old position. You have just adjusted the grinding control! Place back all parts in reversed order. To place back the Bean container you must be aware that there are 2 black nobs in the machine and 2(different sizes!) on the container, they must be placed in a cross.
I trust you will hav succes. Don't turn to far at once because you have now modified the machine and this could damage it! I will assume no responsibillity for damages! Masta NL

Not fine enough grind


This model grinder won't do espresso. There is a DIY mod available online that involves disassembling the machine, and recalibrating the burrs to produce a finer grind. I did it on mine, it was definitely better, but it's not going to get you to the coveted 30 second pull for your espresso. Search on Starbucks Barista Grinder Mod. It is a great grinder otherwise, very reliable.

Grind size too big even when it is set to finest


Have you used it for awhile already? You might want to try replacing the burrs ($20) if they've been used for a few years.

Why is the grind from my Breville BCG450XL in the finest position coming out like a drip grind with a fair amount of dust mixed in? I have an old Solis with exactly the same conical burrs which is grinding...


The Breville was designed to be used with Pressurized Portafilters, which most Home Espresso Machines have. These filters use a courser grind, so when it says Espresso on the Breville, it's really closer to Drip. The Turkish setting is barely fine enough for Espresso. There is a limiter on the Breville that prevents the user from going any finer, if you crack it open and remove the limiter, you can go as fine as the Solis. Becareful though, the burs can come so close to each other that they can chip and break.

Grinder setting stops at drip. Can't turn further to espresso.


Another suggestion is while the grinder is off, turn it up side down and rotate the bean hopper from coarse to fine a couple of times. This will clean out grounds that have gotten into the threads and it will prevent the bean hopper from not turning to a finer grind.
If you start to get a clog in your grinder, open it up to a coarse grind for a few seconds. The coarser grind will clean out the chute and then you can turn it down again while it is still grinding.
