Rancilio Rocky Timer-Mod part 2 Disassembly
Avi's Silvia Mega-Mod
My way to a better coffee...
DISCLAIMER - Important!
I chose to add a digital timer to Rocky and make some improvements to this grinder which I’ll describe in the following pages.
In order to make the modification, disassembly of Rocky is first needed.
Before starting disassemble of Rocky, make sure it is disconnected from power.
Take the power plug out of the mains socket.
Tip: It is advised to use a vacuum cleaner to remove any coffee residue from the hopper and from the burrs before you go on with the disassembly. Your work will be much comfortable without any coffee around.
Tip: Front cover is made of Aluminum cast and is sensitive to impact, be careful with the handling of this part.
Tip: Mark each connector you disassemble for easy assembly later on.
If you got confused, don’t worry, Rocky’s manual has the electric diagram ready for you. (see page 46)
Tip: Assembling is done in reverse order of the above.
Tip: When assembling, remember to screw the upper grinder burr until it can’t turn and then release it a bit to match the 3 threads of the burr to the hopper holes while in “0” position.
This must be done prior of assembly the upper grinder burr cover that attaches the hopper to the burr plate.
When done, turn the hopper to none “0” position to protect the burrs from touching.
Tip: Make sure that in “0” position, the hopper fits the stopper pin.
Just rotate it slightly until you’ll feel that the pin found its matching hole in the hopper.
Never force the hopper to less than “0” position as it will bend the hopper stopper screw and might also break the hopper.
Tip: Be very careful not to fasten the chute screws too tight as it will break.
If all was disassembled correctly, it is time to start the Timer-Mod
