We received Mr. Dudley® Battery Operated Pepper mill as a Christmas present from the our family. It worked for years then one day it stopped working.
This post shows the nine steps to repairing a battery operated pepper mill.
Step 1: Fig.1 above shows the direction on how to operate the pepper mill. Put peppercorn inside pepper compartment and grid. This battery grinder is the best, just press the white button on the top and pull off the bottom lid and out goes nice clean pepper.
Step 2: Take the unit apart. Fig.2 shows the use a cordless screwdriver with a Phillip bit and unscrew 3-metal screws holding the top to the bottom unit.
