Subject: Grindmaster 825 question? Manual?
 

Hey All, just picked up a used Grindmaster 825B (black) and it is working nice except... it makes a terrible rumbling noise as though its rubbing on something and like a shuddering.. if I push up at a 45deg angle slightly on the knob in front it becomes whisper quiet... It didn't come with a manual and is a little different in the front to the 835 being it just has one adjustment screw in front which I cannot turn but I haven't tried it while its running as one of the other manuals stated for the other 800 series... but since this one has one screw in front instead of 3 Im not sure if it is different mechanism.... the grind though that came out was very consistent... Im disassembling this and cleaning and maybe even throw on some new paint since it was used for FLAVORED COFFEE! UUGGG!! lol ...When I have it super clean,  its just going to be used for cupping and grinding for iced coffee for some of my clients... anyway... any info would be great! :D

try this and this as well as my review of my Grindmaster 500 here.

Open it up. They are quite simple inside and very easy to work on. if you need parts, contact Grindmaster. I have a model 500 and they still have the burrsets for those.

Thanks for those but I already have the manual for those... my issue is that the 825 face screw is different... it doesn't have 3 screws on front just one... I can tell its ultra simple design and I already took off the top hopper and looked inside and wow does it have a big motor ! its larger than my Mazzer major motor! lol anyway... Im just not sure how to get inside the front.. do i need remove the center adjustment screw or is that just part of the knob housing maybe with front burs? I removed the big screws on larger disk but could not pull front off but since I wasn't sure IF that was correct, I didnt pull too hard... maybe Ill try pulling a little more lol

For the 825, just start taking screws off and document where they came from (video, stills, or separate plastic bags). Grindmasters are all pretty simple and made to be worked on, so little worry about disassembly. If the top case is all one piece (no removable back panel or such), then the screws might be on the bottom and the entire cabinet may lift off.

The 500 is what I use to grind full Hottop batches for friends who do not have grinders. It's a real workhorse, and will come in very handy when (if?) the new Hottop 1kg roaster arrives!

nice on the hottop! they are pricey but nice to roast inside kitchen.... I built a PIDd fluid bed roaster from a poppery I and it will do 1LB max.. but its great for sample roasting little batches when experimenting...

on the Grinder, I looked inside and your right... not much in there... was nice for a change... lol the only thing that perplexed me was why it didnt have the 3 screws on the dial and if they were necessary to get the dial off.... what I think is that its just gummed up a little so I will work a little on it tonight when I get home.. after a delicious latte :D well maybe during while watching fireworks out my window! lol
