Fellow Ode V2 owners, static?

Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

I bought a Fellow Ode v2 shortly after they were released (after returning the v1 due to static issues) and have generally been really impressed.

However, about 6 weeks in I'm getting static issues very similar to the first version. It's been brushed out regularly as per Fellow's recommendation, and I've been using the same bean the whole time so no change in coffee type.

I'm getting the static grounds all over the top of the container, random drops and .5-.7g of retention (up from a fairly consistent .1g before)

Before I get in touch with the retailer I thought I'd check see if anyone else is seeing an increase of static with use.

I also bought the Ode V2 with the intentions of gifting the Ode V1 with Gen.2 burrs to family. It's my filter grinder at work and I haven't been using RDT there for a long time. The V2 still seems cleaner for my little coffee space. I don't open up anything with a brush, and honestly, I don't even use the knocker. Overall, I'm still quite happy with it.

Thanks yeah up until a week or so ago it had been great. I've never used RDT with any grinder (although I don't single dose for espresso) and keen not to start so hopefully if I brush the chute out a bit more it can sort it out.

maybe the ionic generator has failed?

When you brush it out, you're being sure to pay special attention to the ioniser?

I was having some static until I brushed the ioniser really well, and now it's all good.

It's a high static weather right now.

Thanks all, I'll give it another good brush paying attention to the pins and see how it goes.

I have noticed the same issue. Curious if yours resolves after a good cleaning.

Ok so I cleaned the little tabs in the chute and it sorted things. It's a bit of a faff to get the brush in behind the parts that get clogged but only takes a few seconds so as long as that sorts it I'm not too bothered.

The next time this comes up, if you could post a photo of the ionizer before/after cleaning, that would be awesome...
