    My elgi ultra wet grinder is almost 9 years old, still working ok. But I feel than nowadays it us not as efficient as before. For eg: I need to manually scrape the sides and push the urad dal to centre almost continuously and even then some whole urad dal remains in the batter. Also, grinding takes longer time.

    I was wondering if my grinder requires some maintenance. Do the stones need to be made rougher or some part needs replacing?

    Unlike before the motor used in the grinders nowadays are not of great quality. 9 years is good enough a life for the grinder. I would change the grinder in this case .

    I was hoping to extend the life since the motor seems to be working fine. Let me consult elgi service center before buying a new one.

    My grinder - grinding stone has become smooth.
    It grinds rice well, but doesn't grind urad dal , manual intervention needed.
    I tried soaking couple of hours extra. Still I see urad dal grains here & there.
    How to make the stone rougher?
    As new one it was rough . What to do now?

    You can contact customer care of elgi and purchase only stone ...if you dint want to buy new grinder...

    You can also try replacing the wiper assembly part that will help with rotating the dal and rice evenly by moving along with the stone.
