Topic: cleaning Behmor 1600 (2 msgs / 44 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
<Snip>
I opened up the right side of the Behmor, there was no dust collected  
on the fan so even after this long a time, 21 roasts in about three  
months, it really did not need it.  The screw holes on the case and  
the panel do not match very well and it takes applying some muscle to  
get the cover back on.  This is rather difficult to do with the two  
hands and arms that I was born with, I really needed a third.  Since I  
vacuum clean the ports to the fan chamber, that may be what keeps the  
fan clean.  I also wiped the inside metal with a mild cleaner and  
wiped that clean as well.  I could see no difference in the color of  
the inside before and after cleaning.

2) From: Benjamin VerHage
I cleaned mine after 100 or so roasts. Found a thin layer of dust on the inside of the cover as well as on the fan (not enough to effect performance I suspect). I had the same experience with putting the cover back on. I noticed the same thing when I replaced the motor a while back. Both times I tried it a couple different ways until I figured out the right order to replace the screws (unfortunately I don't remember what it is).
