3) From: Sandy Andina
Well, according  to Behmor, the "heat deflector bend" fix was not  =
supposed to be publicized to this list. Even after lamenting that info  =
"leak," they sent me the pic anyway. In my case it did not avail,  =
because when I removed the vent cover (which has always been clean  =
bare brushed metal inside and out), the housing underneath it appears  =
to be powder-coat black-painted metal (which Behmor swears cannot be  =
the case because it used no painted metal--that I must have caused  =
oils to accumulate and burn on as they did in the interior; but if  =
that's the case, why is the inside of the vent cover still pristine?  =
Wouldn't it have charred too?). The heat deflector on mine is recessed  =
more deeply and off to the side than in the photo--there is no way I  =
can angle even a short-shafted screwdriver in there between the screw  =
and housing at all, much less enough to be able to twist it even the  =
tiniest bit to create a bend.
According to Behmor, that should not even be necessary, though--they  =
contend there are none of their roasters that run "cool" or "slow" but  =
that other factors--mostly voltage-related--are causing roasters to  =
run too cool.  Chief among these factors are rolling brownouts/voltage  =
"dips" (which come from the local power grid and are not user- =
controllable), plugging into an outlet with unstable current and the  =
use of extension cords, which attenuate voltage.  Dirty interiors-- =
especially the part of the interior lining that covers the TC sensor-- =
are another factor:  if that part of the lining is darker than or not  =
as shiny as it was when new, heat is absorbed rather than reflected,  =
and thus the TC will read the interior (and perhaps bean) temp as  =
hotter than it is and cause the heating elements to cycle off too soon  =
or not cycle on soon enough.  As to the "Err 6" readouts I get, I  =
can't explain that, now that I have cleaned and polished (almost as  =
bright and shiny as new) the area in question; but it seems to happen  =
on only the first roast after a cleaning cycle--perhaps the Cool cycle  =
doesn't cool an empty roaster enough and I should wait longer before  =
loading the drum and roasting.  If I do that, "Err 6" doesn't come up.
In my case, I was able to roast 3/4 lb. on the 1 lb. P1 A (default)  =
setting with perhaps only about 30 extra seconds tacked on to get my  =
Monkey Blend to what looked, smelled and sounded like FC but tastes  =
(bean munch) like the SM-prescribed FC+-to-Vienna.  And I was able to  =
do it with the extension cord (albeit at 4:30 a.m. when local  =
electricity demand was not as great as earlier in the evening and thus  =
voltage probably higher and closer to true).

causing roasters to run too cool.  
I can believe that.  I run mine off a variac *and* monitor voltage (a
holdover from my Rosto days) and find my Behmor roasts much more consistent
if I keep the voltage to it at 118-120 Volts *when the heater is on* (it
will jump to 124+ when the heater cycles off . . . an indication of the
voltage drop in my house wiring).  I'd suggest measuring voltage at the
socket the Behmor is plugged into, and if it drops much below 115 *under
load* to consider doing something about it.

Use a variac all the time. The power company here is flakey. There is 
still burned wire up connecting transformers from an incident three 
years ago. They recently replace the transformer that blew during the 
incident. Only had to call and complain about brownouts eight times.

That's what I thought and the picture they supply is so fuzzy it took 
me about 15 minutes staring back and forth with flashlight in hand 
before I figured out what to do. Funny they didn't ask me not to say 
anything. And when i said I was using 1 18" 12ga extension cord they 
told me to get rid of it. When I told them I had 114V at the outlet 
under full load, the person on the other end seemed to have no idea 
what it should be and what would be a problem, he just knew the 
extension cord was a problem. Personally I know that measured drop 
across that cord was essentially 0V.

Well, After the cat got out of the bag I made the call and got the 
picture and you are right, even with the picture in hand finding the 
correct point to make the bend is not easy.
The end result was to cut about 4 minutes off of the P-1 / 1lb roast times.
As Rayo has pointed out several times the voltage to the roaster is very 
critical along with cleanliness.

Rayo may have pointed it out, but I don't think that voltage is much 
of an issue. Even the people with slow roasters can see the elements 
cycling which means the problem is in the temperature, not the voltage.

I suspect too that the extension cord itself may not be an attenuator,  
but rather the outlet into which it's plugged (and the circuit feeding  
that outlet).  In my case, it's one of the few in the house that did  
not get rewired during our whole-house project back in 1990, and is  
still a 2-slotter sans grounding hole.  (Probably because it almost  
never got used till I began homeroasting).  Next time I encounter a  
problem I'll plug directly into a 3-prong grounded outlet to see if  
there's greater voltage.
