INTRODUCTION
The LPG will store up to six pounds and the LPG-2E will store up to three pounds of whole bean coffee in each of two
hoppers and grind it to a preset grind and amount into an awaiting funnel and filter from most commercial drip coffee
brewers. The equipment is only for indoor use on a sturdy counter or shelf. Adequate space must be available above the
grinder to raise the lid when adding beans. Use only with whole bean coffee.
The grind is preset at the factory to drip specifications as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce and
adopted by the Coffee Brewing Center of the Pan American Coffee Bureau. Adjustments may be made to alter both the
amount and grind from the factory setting.
USER NOTICES
Carefully read and follow all notices on the grinder and in this manual. They were written for your protection.
All notices on the grinder are to be kept in good condition. Replace any unreadable or damaged labels.

CLEANING
EXTERIOR SURFACES
The use of a damp cloth rinsed in any mild, nonabrasive, liquid detergent is recommended for cleaning all

2. Empty all beans from both hopper(s).
3. Plug-in the grinder, place funnel with filter into funnel rails. Press the Off/On/Start switch to the “START”
lower position and release. Run a few grind cycles until all the coffee in the grind chamber is dispensed and
disconnect grinder from the power source.
4. Remove the funnel with filter and carefully tip the grinder over on it’s back.
5. Remove the two #10-32 screws securing burr housing cap assembly to the burr housing and remove burr
housing cap assembly.
6 Remove load disc and slide rotor with lower burr, spring and brass bushing off of the motor shaft.
7. Clean the grind chamber and all parts with a dry non metallic bristle brush and wipe with a dry clean cloth.
8. Reinstall brass bushing (flanged end first), spring and rotor with lower burr onto the motor shaft. Reinstall
load disc flat side toward rotor and burr housing cap assembly to the burr housing.
