After adjusting the inner burr setting down, my machine has started spinning slipping the cogs, or maybe clutch if it has that. Its more the finer i go. Is there something wrong with my machine, or is it just too fine for the grinder too handle? I have rinsed the grinder well. Any one got experience with this grinder? And how is your experience getting espresso fine grinds?

I own the Breville Barista Express which has a very similar grinder. What kind of noise does it make? A humming noise when you try to grind finer? Does it just go slower?
Mine stopped working after I cleaned the burrs and put it back together. The grinder can get fine enough grinds for espresso but mine just barely got that fine
