5. Setting-up and Basic Adjustment
Thermal overload circuit breaker
The motor of the grinder is protected by an overload circuit
breaker, which interrupts the electric circuit of the motor when
the device is subjected to electric overloading. To be able to restart the grinder, the reset button on the side of the casing must
be pressed.
A grinding test run is carried out on each grinder in the manufacturer‘s factory. This is why you may find ground material residue
in the grinding mechanism!
The user has no influence whatsoever on this
operation. In case of repeated tripping of the circuit breaker, an expert must be consulted since
this could cause damage to the motor winding.
Never operate the grinder in moist, or even
worse, in wet surroundings.
Motor protector (winding shield)
The grinder is protected against thermal overloading by a motor
protector (thermostat, inserted in the winding). Whenever the
winding of the motor heats up to an impermissible level, the motor protector interrupts the electric circuit of the motor.
Following a cool-off phase (approx. 1 hr.), the motor protector is
switched on again automatically and the grinder can be re-started.
5.1 Setting-up Area
Place the grinder on a level surface free from vibration.
5.2 Installation
You have received your grinder in operating condition. Now you
only need to connect it to a power supply system. Proceed as follows:
Protect your device with a separate pre-fuse
(not included in the scope of supplies) according
to the information provided in „Technical data“
under 2.
Make sure that the pre-fuse is not overloaded
by other consuming devices (e.g. fan-forced
heaters, deep freezers).
7
LADENMÜHLEN | SHOP GRINDER
Determine whether the mains voltage and frequency correspond to the information on the
rating plate.
Insert the plug into the available grounded outlet.
6. Operation
6.1 How to use the grinder
1. By moving the rotary knob (pos.3), set the required grind degree (to the left for coarse grind, to the right for finer grind).
2. Only fill whole coffee beans (unground material) into the
hopper (pos.1). Close the hopper.
3. Press the handle of the bag holder down (pos.5) and push the
completely opened bag, which has been smoothed along the
folds, over the spout. Let go of the handle and the bag is held
firmly in position.
Knock the base of the bag a number of times whilst grinding. This
allows the maximum capacity of the bag to be used.
In the case of the combination grinder, by turning the combined On / Off - selection switch you
can select the grinder you wish to use.
You can only grind on the side of the grinder
casing side you have selected. You cannot grind
on both sides at the same time.
5. Once all material has been ground, hold the bottom of the
bag gently in one hand. Use the other hand to press the handle of the bag holder and allow it to knock against the spout
2 – 3 times. This removes any ground particles which may
still be attached to the inside of the spout
6. Now switch off the grinder (pos. 8)
4. Now you can switch on the grinder (pos.7).
7. Remove the filled bag from the spout. The grinding process is
terminated. Close the main hopper slider.

8. Grind Adjustment Calibration
The grinder has been precisely adjusted by the manufacturer.
However, if the ground material is no longer fine enough after a
longer period, the grinder must then be re-adjusted according to
the following procedure:
1. Turn the rotary knob to position 1 ”fine”. Loosen the two
threaded pins by approx. 1 rotation using the 3 mm hexagon
spanner enclosed in delivery. The two threaded pins are positioned in the drilled holes of the rotary knob.
2. Now switch on the grinder.
3. Using a screwdriver or coin, carefully turn the large adjustment screw with the slot to the right until you hear a rattling noise (grinding disc are touching). Turn the adjustment
screw back by approx. 10 degrees and the rattling sound
should stop.
4. If you grind some beans now, you should get fine grains (in
the case of coffee). If the coffee beans have been ground
too fine, the discs can stick together. The grinder would be
blocked.
It is important that the rattling sound cannot be
heard in the finest grinding position. Otherwise
the service life of the grinding discs is reduced
considerably!
5. If the adjustment you have made does not come up to your
expectations you can adjust the grind degree as described
above.
9. Cleaning the Grinder
Always pull the power supply plug out of the
outlet before carrying out any maintenance or
cleaning work on the device!
Observe the safety instructions under 1.2!
Do not let any foreign objects fall into the
grinding mechanism!!
11
LADENMÜHLEN | SHOP GRINDER
9.1 Cleaning with GRINDZ™ Grinder Cleaner
We recommend cleaning your shop grinder once a month with
our GRINDZ™ Grinder Cleaner.
Simply take the recommended dose of 70 - 80g for shop grinders and drop it into the empty grinder hopper. You can also use
the cap of the jar for dosing. A full cap will yield between 35 - 40
grams.
Adjust the machine setting to medium and operate like standard
grinding procedure. Once complete, we recommend passing
twice as much original material through to purge any residue.
10. Spare Parts
Spare parts are usually ordered from your customer service centre or your local dealer. To ensure quick, correct processing of your
order, the following information is absolutely required:
1. Type designation and serial number of the grinder
(on the rating plate on the rear side of the grinder).
2. Color of the grinder
9.2 Cleaning the grinder casing
Clean the casing of your grinder every now and then with commercially available mild cleaning agents. In addition, you should
also clean the hopper from time to time.
Do not let any foreign objects fall into the grinding mechanism!!
