Thought I'd pose the question, it's been discussed many times elsewhere, but the question is:
Is it safe for you to adjust the grind finer/coarser without it running?
I've seen completely opposite views, just looking for a definitive answer (if there is one!), and I guess it may depend on the grinder itself regarding how big of an adjustment occurs.
I've seen it said absolutely do not do this under any circumstance, will cause the burrs to misalign, DESTROY the motor, stall the grinder etc because of beans being jammed and you're trying to squash it all together.
And the opposite saying: totally fine to do if it's a small adjustment (some even say fine for large changes too), the burrs are much much harder than beans (which you can easily break with your fingernails), so it won't cause any damage whatsoever to the burrs.
Some also say it's totally okay to adjust coarser while the motor is off, but you should run it when adjusting finer.
What do you guys do, or what is the general understanding?
*EDIT: I just adjusted my grinder one notch finer, whilst the hopper, throat, and everything was full of beans and whilst being turned off. And the grinder did not, I repeat, did NOT explode XD. Nor was there any resistance I felt as I changed it, which there would probably be if partially ground beans were jammed in between the burrs
