    kitchenaid pro line espresso maker and pro line grinder ?''s

    I just purchased and received today my new kitchenaid pro line espresso maker and pro line burr grinder. I read there are some mods you can do to the grinder to make it grind more consistent and make it a stepless, so I did those easy 2 minute mods.

    From what others have reported, they set thier grinders to setting 7 or 7.5 after adjusting the grinder per ka''s recommendation for espresso use.

    Once I made the simple adjustment, I can only get the espresso maker to work at setting of 5.5 from the ground beans, I only get drips coming out, as if its not strong enough to force the water through. At 5.5 I can produce a 1.5-2 ounce shot, but its blond from almost the second it starts extraction. The coffee is just not a fine enough ground I would guess. I tested my tamper force and I am only using 20lbs I would guess, 30 pounds at the most, but I do not even think that much.

    Do you think the ka may be defective? any other suggestions?
