I mainly use my Preciso for drip but sometimes i need to adjust the grind for a french press. When I went to do that today I noticed the hopper completely spun from 32 to 0 on the first start of grinding, I moved it back and it did it again. I noticed that if I held the hopper in place the ring burr holder would just spin. When I went to disable to make sure nothing was stuck I had a hard time getting ring burr back out because it had spun on its own. I noticed this happened because when I put it back on the tabs were not lined up how they were when they were off. When I finally got off, I made sure nothing was stuck and pushed it back into place. It looks to be working again but I'd like to not have this keep happening.

Does anyone have suggestions on what could be happening here? I don't keep the hopper full because I don't want to adjust settings with a full hopper, so I'm fairly confident no beans were in there. I thought about also ordering a new ring burr or contacting Baratza about this because it is a refurbished model. The only possible thing I can think of is last time I cleaned it I didn't seat the ring burr enough but I didn't see any issues because of the grind type.

If it's working properly now, you most likely didn't put it back together right.

You can take the hopper off and push down on the burr carrier to ensure nothing is broken, but other than that if it's working why try and fix it?

 
Less water, more grounds.

I guess my concern at this point was just what it could have been but if it's that simple I'll just make sure I check that before adjusting grind settings.

I would contact Baratza about it to see what they have to say. If a part is going out then at least you'll have a heads up- you didn't say how long ago you bought it but if the burr holder is breaking they don't cost much, may be worth getting a new one coming. Or maybe just look at the picture of the burr holder in the parts section of their website and compare to yours, might help you to tell if yours is broken or breaking. Did you put it back together with the red tab forwards?

I bought this less than a year ago, I think it just wasn't seated properly. I may just order the extra burr to have just incase since they are so inexpensive (compared to the cost of a busted grinder).
