Good in bits, but shamefull electronics
on 25 July 2012
This is a mechanically well built machine that performs its grinding function pretty well. So it should be a good product? Unfortunately after building a good grinder Krupps decided to surround it with poorly made switches, controls and electronics. Mine stop working properly after a year, basically it worked in short bursts of about half a second at a time. After a brief google search I found this was common enough problem often caused by poor quality switches used to prevent grinder operating when collection container or lid is not properly fitted, the advice being take it apart and by pass offending switches, which I did only to find mine had a more general electronic problem with timing circuit just not working, so I by passed the thyristor on circuit board and mine now works perfectly by operating mains switch on the wall.
If none of what I have said makes sense, or you you couldn't be bothered with making such modifications, or you think you shouldn't have to make such modifications to a simple grinder to get it to work; then don't buy this grinder. Otherwise it's okay but better should be out there somewhere.
