Yes of course it does in theory, but in the world of hot and cold 
Behmors it doesn't seem to be the problem so I wish all the people 
that understand the theory of Ohms law and Watts and VA and all that 
would stop correcting me. My Behmor ran cold as have others and the 
problem had nothing to do with the voltage at the outlet and 
everything to do with how my Behmor measured temperature.  I design 
electronics for a living and really do understand what's going on and 
I wouldn't be saying the voltage doesn't matter if in my case it 
wasn't true.  And since the fix has worked for others, it wasn't true 
in their case either.

I'm in the ballpark that there must be roasters running cold.
I'm not a handy-woman and I don't own a kill-a-watt or a whatnot, but
my home was built in 2005, and I should be able to trust the wiring,
and I usually roast late at night, no extension cord.  Once I made
"the fix", I shaved 4 minutes off my time to first crack on a 1/2 lb
batch.
I did over 100 roasts prior to "the fix", and my roast times were
consistent.  I had a feeling they were just too long.  There was no
way I could follow Les's advice because my roast times were so much
longer.  I could never run 1/2 lb on the 1/2 lb setting because I
would run out of time, for example, on P2, if it took 12 minutes to
1c, I would need to set the program at 12 / .6 = 20 minutes to get the
drop at the right spot.  Can not do on 1/2 lb setting.
I have done about 10 roasts post fix, and the 4 minutes is also
consistent.  Now, I get to 1C on average at 8 min. elapsed, vs. 12
minutes before.
I couldn't exactly measure the amount of the gap I created, they
recommended to start with 1/8 in, and if it didn't have an effect, go
to 1/4 inch.  I got what I got, and I can't go back and make it
smaller.
I don't know if it is my imagination, but in the cup, my coffees seem
to taste better after "the fix", too.

You could of course, it would just take a crochet hook!
