I tried adjusting the grind on my Mazzer mini, and found that I couldn't really get it coarse enough for French Press, so turned it back for espresso and now it won't grind at all!   I did leave coffee beans in but had it running while adjusting (the instructions say "preferably without beans" but I figured I'd just waste a little coffee).  Do I have a bean wedged in the discs?  The motor runs but nothing comes out.   I tried brushing things clean, jiggled the beans around, made sure the shoot was open.  I've only had it about a month.   Any suggestions?

Why don't you adjust the grinder for a more coarse grind, see if that clears out the machine and then adjust it back to your espresso setting?

THANK YOU!   I did just that, without beans this time, and now it's grinding again on the fine setting.  Whew!   Was afraid I was going to have load that monster into a box for servicing somewhere.   Thank you so much!
