Kitchen aid burr grinder adjustments

I just purchased the 4KPCG100PM1 kitchen aid burr grinder.Looks like a nice unit but on the finest setting it is far to course for espresso. Can it be adjusted to a finer set of 15 positions by repositioning the adjuster within the unit.

You are correct, the grider positions are locked internaly so the grinder will not go too fine since this can damage the blades and also too fine need more power from motor and also can block it by rottating normaly. However you ir open the grider you can overcome the lock and udjust so the grinder can grind more fine coffee. In order to be always at the safe side just move gradualy step by step until you find the perfect grinding and adjust so that will be the minimum plus one mor move for furure adjustment if you need.
Just for reference the corect grinding is for 7 to 7.5 gr of coffee the running time of the coffee from your machine should be 25 sec for 25 cc of coffee aprox.
Good luck.

If the parts are not listed separately, the motor and gears are a completely separate assembly. A replacement motor (assembly) would include the gears

Coffee grinder only grinds to course no matter where grind adjuster is set


From what I've read about this grinder, you should be happy that it worked well as long as it did.

Whatever the setting is at the grind is always fine. What can I do to re-calibrate the grinder?


Grind Adjustment Tools required: Large blade and medium Phillips head screwdrivers In order to adjust the grind, follow these steps (Refer to figure A): 1. Remove all coffee from the hopper. 2. Set selector knob to the finest setting (Espresso or Turkish) depending on the model. 3. Loosen both knob retainer screws in selector knob one turn only. 4. While pressing the bag switch, located behind the spout, press the START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 810 model - Press the ON or START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 5. With the grinder still running, turn the adjusting screw in the center of the selector knob slowly to the right until a slight clicking noise is heard. Immediately turn the adjusting screw to the left one grind setting. This is the finest grind obtainable. 6. Tighten both of the knob retainer screws. Once the ESPRESSO grind has been set (Turkish for Model 835, 875, 890), the other grind settings will automatically set correctly. 7. Press the STOP or OFF button. IMPORTANT: Always be sure the grinding burrs are not touching while the machine is running on the ESPRESSO/TURKISH setting. Otherwise serious damage to the motor may result. dr_buckhead.png

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

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.

Cannot get the grinding ring option to turn


This is a set screw. You need to take this out.
You can access this to either clean the burr
grinding wheel. Maybe this needs changed.
If you google the Kitchenaid A-9 Burr grinder you can get instructions to download on this machine.

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.
