Basic Usage

The Macinatore FAUSTO has a single and a double dose, indicated by a single cup on the left for a single dose, and two cups on the right for a double does. To adjust each, press and hold the desired dose. Then, press the plus or minus buttons to adjust in increments of a tenth of a second. Press either of the buttons to begin grinding.

To adjust grind fineness, turn the adjustment knob while the grinder is in operation (while the machine is grinding). Turning the knob clockwise results in a finer grind, whereas turning the knob counter-clockwise results in a coarser grind.

Cleaning & Maintenance

To reach the burrs for cleaning, first unscrew the set screw holding the hopper in place. Then, close the gate beneath the hopper to keep your beans in place while removing the hopper. There will be beans in the grinding chamber that you can vacuum out.

There are four hex screws on top of the grinder, one at each corner. Undo these with a hex key or Allen wrench. Keep your screws in a safe container and remove the top of the grinder. There are three more screws beneath this that hold the top burr in place. Undo these with an impact wrench and #3 bit. Lift the top burr plate expose the burrs.

Brush the grinding chamber and burrs to loosen any debris or old grounds and vacuum what you can see. Reassemble the grinder. The grind setting will have remained the same as before cleaning the grinder.


Machine Not Powering On

  1. First plug the machine into another outlet. Make sure the machine is the only device on the outlet, and that the outlet works with other appliances.
  2. Try backing out the grind to a coarse setting. If the burrs are too close together they will not be able to move.
  3. Try using the machine on a different outlet, and make sure the machine is the only appliance plugged into that outlet.
    • If the machine still is not working then there may be a loose wire internally.
  4. Once the machine is powering back on, reassemble the grinder and make sure the grind is set to the coarsest setting. Add beans back in and test the machine.
  5. If the beans grind correctly on this setting slowly move the grind setting to the desired position. Only adjust the grind size while the grinder is running or you risk jamming the grinder or blowing out the fuse again.

Motor On But Beans Won't Grind

If you hear the motor activating but there is nothing being ground, then the burrs are blocked. Make sure not to use oily, caramelized, or flavored beans in the grinder if you are going to be using the grinder for an espresso grind. These types of beans have a lot of sticky residues that can cause jams. Damage caused by use of these beans is often not covered under warranty.

  1. If the machine is set to a very fine grind, then the burrs may be touching each other. Back the machine off to the coarsest grind setting and see if it's able to grind.
  2. If the machine is able to grind on this setting, then the burrs were most likely too close together, or the grinder was adjusted when it was off. Try moving the grind back down slowly while the grinder is running. Adjustments should only be made while the grinder is running to prevent jams. Do not set the grind too fine; if the grind is in the Turkish range, like baby powder, then it is set too fine and the machine could jam again.
  3. If the machine is not able to grind on this setting, then there is a more serious jam. Please refer to the cleaning and maintenance icon above for instructions on burr cleaning and calibration. Once the grinder is cleaned and calibrated, it is important that the machine is set to a coarse grind before using it again. Setting the grind to a fine grind can cause it to jam again.

Grinds Coarse/Inconsistent

  • If the machine is on a fine setting and the grinds are still coarse, or if the machine is producing grinds of all different sizes, then the grinder is out of calibration or needs to be cleaned. Please refer to the cleaning and maintenance icon above for instructions on burr cleaning and calibration.
  • Oily, caramelized, or flavored beans can cake up on the burrs and push them out of calibration, so these beans should be avoided.
    • Additionally adjustments to the grind fineness should only be made while the grinder is running. Moving the burrs closer together for a fine grind will cause them to press against any bean fragments or grinds already in the grinder.
      • If the burrs are moving, those fragments get ground up and brushed aside.
      • If the burrs aren't moving, then they will press into those fragments and cause the burr to get pushed out of alignment.
  • If the grinder is older, or if something was put through the grinder that is not meant to be put in it, the burrs may be worn out. If cleaning and calibrating the grinder is not resolving the behavior then it may be time to replace the burrs.
