Krups F203 Coffee Grinder Troubleshooting

This is a guide to help with common problems users face with the Krups F203 Coffee Grinder.

Grinder Grinds too Slowly ¶ 

The grinder is not grinding beans as quickly as it should.

Need to clean ¶ 

Ground coffee particulates can clog the device. This can cause beans to be ground too coarsely or too slowly. Clean the device of all coffee grounds, and check especially around the base of the blade.

Too much coffee ¶ 

If you put too many coffee beans into the grinder, the grinder will be unable to function properly. Remove some of the beans and try again.

Dull blade ¶ 

It is possible that the blade has dulled over time. The only recourse is to replace it.

Bad motor ¶ 

If the grinder stops and starts or there are strange noises associated with the poor grinding, the motor may be bad. This would necessitate a new motor. Use this guide to replace the motor.
