While running, Lomi will make some minimal noises. When it has bigger material or harder bioplastic there may be an occasional grinding noise. If there is a loud constant grinding noise something is likely stuck.
- Turn Lomi off.
- Allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
- Remove the obstruction.
- If possible add more organic waste when you restart it to ensure a smoother cycle.
A noise that may occur if you often add coffee grounds or eggshells is a higher-pitched "creaking" noise - don't worry though! This noise is simply the coffee grounds, eggshell, or other hardened material that's gotten itself stuck in a certain spot in the bucket.
To prevent this noise, or others, from recurring, please rinse your bucket well after you've added coffee grounds or other small hard material.
