When I did my first roasts with the i-Roast 2, a week ago, I noticed that the (fan) speed was considerably variable, going up and down. Under FAQ's on the i-Roast website,I already found that this is normal behaviour. However the last few days I have the impression that the speed is rather constant and hardly changing, except when cooling of course. Could this be normal or is my i-Roast 2 maybe faulty ? Btw, the roasting results are not bad, but I am still a newbie. Ton
Ton, I had one of my iRoasts (I'm on my third, fortunately under warranty) stay at a constant fan speed through the whole roast, it would always be on the high speed, and therefore never get hot enough, so you could have a defective unit. If you roast outside, it could also be due to the colder ambient air temp. it never gets hot enough to go to the higher fan speed (if it seems stuck on the slow speed). Hearthware does seem to have some quality issues, so defective units are not unheard of. Mike On 12/6/06, Ton van Rijn wrote: <Snip>
Thanks Mike. No I am not roasting outside. The ambient temperature in my kitchen is around 18* C, or 68* F. I will keep an eye on it and contact my dealer when it stays like that.
