Posted Wed Dec 1, 2004, 6:22pm Subject: Rancilio MD40 Cleaning problem
I just got my MD40 delivered today (from ebay). It grinds, is quiet, but filthy inside. I'm trying to take it apart to clean, but can't get the top plate off (just below the courseness settings and ontop of the top burr). Also, the top burr (and the courseness) will not turn. There is rust/corrosion on some of the screws, so I suspect it needs some forcing, I just don't want to break anything!
