1. Low motor amps and reduced capacity. Instead of it taking six hours to process, it may take eight hours.
2. Poor feed quality. The rolls will be doing more crushing than grinding, resulting in excessive powdering.


This is dependent on several factors, including the application, surface area of the rolls, corrugations and whether the mill has been set properly. Please feel free to call us for a consultation.


Time depends on:
1. If it is an emergency, we can be there almost immediately.
2. If it is not an emergency, we try to group you in with a service route for other customers in the same area. This will save you money as you will be splitting the cost of travel expenses. We recommend calling in at least one month ahead of time to get a “grouped in” rate.
3. If you have a specific date in mind and you do not want to wait for group pricing, let us know. We work around your schedule!

Check these first:
1. Mill is out of adjustment or out of parallel
2. Dull rolls

3. Improper spring tension
4. Worn roll position parts
5. Ingredient issues. Has the moisture content of your ingredient(s) changed? Possibly over dried, or a hybrid with poor grinding characteristics?


Possibilities:
1. The V-block is worn out
2. Dull rolls, which can cause the product to pile up on the rolls.
