Hi everyone
I can't remember the maker of my grinder at the moment, I'll check and edit the post later.  It is similar in construction to my Rocky doser model though.  Anyways, here is the problem:

when I pull the lever for the grinds, the sweeper moves, but then it doesn't click and allow me to redose.  The sweeper seems to be stuck to the lever.  If I use my finger to hold the sweeper in place, then the lever will click and allow me to spin the sweeper for the next dose.  I haven't taken it apart, but i thought I'd see if anyone could suggest a solution.  I know it may be difficult to tell without my knowing the model, but as I mentioned, it looks like my Rocky grinder and I imagine the mechanism is pretty universal with this type of basic grinder.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  i tried to do a google search and couldn't come up with anything.

thanks

It sounds like the return spring may be broken or has come off, or perhaps the grinder is very dirty and it is jammed up.
