Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the repair field for over 20 years. I am sorry you are having issues with your Moulinex coffee grinder. I will be glad to help you today.

I'm happy to help you decide if you need to get your appliance professionally repaired or if you can manage the repair yourself. However, sometimes it takes me time to type out a more extended response; please be patient!

The switch may be clogged or damaged if the grinder still runs intermittently. First, disconnect the grinder and brush any grounds from the switch with a fine brush. Next, push the switch several times with a toothpick to break up any clogs.

If the problem persists, disassemble the grinder to clean it and inspect the switch for any breaks.

A seized grinder motor only hums. To fix a seized motor shaft, clean the shaft and lubricate each bearing point with one or two drops of lightweight machine oil. Then, turn the shat to distribute the oil.

Another potential cause is bent grinder blades or bearings. A grinder with bent blades or lost bearings will require replacement.
