If the bucket that you’re milling the grain into is too full, it can cause the motor to jam.
With inadequate space in the bucket, crushed grain can build up inside the roller housing, causing the motor to get stuck.
If this happens:
- Immediately turn off the mill and unplug it to protect the motor.
- Shake the mill over a container to remove all the crushed grain that has built up in the roller housing.
- Re-mount the mill over a bucket with adequate space and continue milling.
If the motor jams and the bucket is not full, occasionally the motor can get jammed if milling with a smaller mill gap setting (eg Setting 1 or 2, depending on the grain);
- Turn off the mill.
- Then ensure the motor speed is set to 4.
- Then, increase the mill gap setting.
- Turn the mill back on to check that the motor starts to crush normally again.
If still jammed, you may need to repeat the process and further increase the mill gap setting until it starts to crush normally.
