In step 20, I suggest marking which motor terminals the red and black wires connect to so they may be reattached correctly. It is a DC motor so polarity is important. The motor will spin backward if wired incorrectly.

I have a Capresso 565 with a burnt out motor. If I buy a 560, can I just swap out the stainless steel for the plastic? They look like the same unit with that one exception.

Where did you find the replacement motor?

I have a Nivona CafeGrano 135, which is technical identical. I was able to remove the entire Motor unit.

In Germany, it can be bought, e.g. here: https://komtra.de/jura-ersatzteile/jura-...

(unfortunately for the same price like a new grinder.)

Is it possible to remove the motor from the black plastic? It should be possible to just replace the motor….

I have the plastic-housing version of this unit. I removed the (four) rubber feet, but underneath there was nothing but blank plastic, even though the structure looked exactly like there should be screws there.

The solution: the plastic housing is held in place by four latches around the base, each visible in a slot between the housing and the base. Pry them apart, and you can then pop the plastic housing off. (You may have to work your way around several times before the first latch doesn’t re-latch while you’re working on the other ones.)
