Topic: iRoast-2 Stagnant Spot (4 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: Jon Judson
I've noticed when using my iRoast-2 that there is a spot in the rear of 
the roasting chamber that doesn't seem to want to rotate beans.  If you 
look at the roaster head-on, it would be the back right hand quadrant 
against the glass.  The beans in that location just seem to sit there 
and don't rotate into the stream.  Closer in from the glass, they do, as 
well as around the rest of the roasting chamber.  I've taken to giving 
the roaster a shake from time-to-time, but it seems like I shouldn't 
have to do this.  Is this something that this roaster is known to do?  
Should I worry about it?  The center thermoflector is straight all around.
Thanks ahead.

Jon,
I would try tilting the center thermoflector toward that spot.  Mine will
bend pretty easily.  That should change the circulation pattern and might
get those beans moving.  I was constantly tweaking mine or putting something
under one of the feet to change the angle and the circulation pattern.
Good luck!

Jon,
Mine used to do that if it wasn't perfectly level (and it rarely was).
 Usually I would pick it up and rock it once or twice during the roast
when this happened.

I would be careful bending anything.  I suggest re-leveling the machine 
or tilting to compensate.  Put a piece a paper under one side to change 
the the movement of the beans.  They tried to make a tapper with the 
rubber gasket, but it didn't work well enough.
