My grinder wasn't working. Youtube videos said it's just stuck grinds (but it could be a broken motor?). I bought a new Jura instead and was about to discard my Gaggia but dissected it to see what the issue was.
As you can see in the photos, the grinder looks like its ceramic and very little. I thought it was bigger than that but it's quite small.
I saw some beans that were half grinded and also some dusty coffee grounds but they didn't seem like really moist and didn't seem like it could have caused the jam?
I cleaned it and it was easier to take apart than to put it back together.
When I tried to put it back together, I lost track of all the pieces and broke some tape thingy that is supposed to be a microchip or something in tape/ribbon form.
So I tossed it in the trash but feel good about doing so now (after knowing I tried and can't fix it).
I think the issue was the motor engine just because I didn't see stuck, wet grinds (see pics)
the gaggia anima; 2.5 years use before it broke
