Topic: sad, lil' programable hottop (The Update) (16 msgs / 479 lines)
1) From: L. Michael Fraley, MD
I just got the new panel and board for my Programmable Hottop.  Hottop 
Michael (bless him!) sent me the exact same kit that came with my 
upgrade.  I am going to go install as soon as I type this.  With any 
luck, I should be back to drum roasting!  Will let you all know how it 
goes.

Rest your fingers, Eddie!  I put in the new circuit board.  Still would 
not work.  On a hunch (dunno why I did this really) I then installed 
the new fusible link he had sent to me.  Now it works!  Did not have to 
replace the control panels, so my profiles where still in there.  Now.. 
question:  Why did the new fusible link not work last time I installed 
it.. but neither did putting in the new circuit board?  Why did I have 
to have both of them new?  Could both have gone bad at the same time.  
I do not think that is likely.  You know what I think?  I think when I 
was messing around with the thing... trying to find a fuse... I must 
have hurt something on the circuit board.  (I had the thing apart about 
5 times while trying to figure this all out.
But, at least it is working, and I roasted several batches.  Will 
report on them after a few days rest.

HA HA!!  Sorry to laugh... but at first, I thought you were insinuating 
that I was off topic.  Then my slow brain (guess I need more caffeine.. 
but I hate to break into the stuff I roasted today) finally realized 
the point you were making.  Good point, by the way.

So hopefully that will be a happy, lil' programmable Hottop :-)

Sounds like the board went with the fuse, or vice versa, so replacing the
fuse originally did nothing for the bad board.
Woo-hoo! Happy roasting!

Thanks, Eddie!  The only cupping results I have thus far is for Costa 
Rica Pulp Natural - La Cadelilla, roasted to Full City+ (about 20 
seconds into 2nd CR.)  Thinking of Ed, I decided, last evening, to try 
it without any significant rest.  It was wonderful!  Lots of body, very 
fruity, and a chocolate finish.  May be even better with rest, but it 
was nice, as is.
