Motor Thermal Protection is Activated

If you are finding that your SMEG grinder stops working during operation, it’s likely the motor thermal protection has been activated.

The motor thermal protection kicks in automatically after 90 seconds of continuous operation.

When an excessive amount of heat is produced inside the motor circuitry, the thermal protection is there to turn the motor off.

The temperature rise is stopped by this safety feature before it can damage the motor.

Once the motor cools to a safe operating temperature, thermal protectors typically reset themselves.
