Assembling the Graef CM 800 grinder

This post is for coffee lovers and is about how to assemble the Graef CM 800, which is a coffee grinder, after a proper clean up.
Has many images, so it may be “heavy” to browse. Click on every image for full size display.

 

Below are the removable parts.

Be CAREFUL the smallest parts are the most important !!!

Dont loose them !

Be very careful with the smallest parts.
Their job is to power on our grinder!
