Subject: Rancillio Rocky--Is it the bearing??
 

Hello- My rocky has been on the fritz since whole beans were ground for drip coffee and then back to espresso grinding. (Wife did it for my mom when I was at work)

I have tried to replace the burrs as they felt dull but still the grind comes out uneven.

Since I got it from my neighbor(used) I noticed that the nut that holds the lower burr carrier appeared to wobble when spun and whenever testing Zero on the grind it always had a little uneven sound.  This never seem to affect things too badly in the past but now we are choking the shots or shooting diarrhea out of the head.

I use teflon tape and have been grinding espresso successfully with the machine for a couple for years until now.

I am wondering if it is done or can the bearing be changed? Or ???????

Any help would be nice.
Robert
