Topic: Oops. (4 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Allon Stern
This morning, went downstairs, set up the PIDed iRoast with 170g of guatemalan acatenago, then put a load of laundry in and was promptly distracted by the kids.
So after breakfast I'm listening and hear one of the kids playing a video game in the next room, but there's a whirring sound I also hear.
Oops! Ran downstairs, turned off the roaster, dumped the beans, and unplugged. It had probably been 
The only difference is that the cooling cycle wasn't as fast as usual, but thankfully all my automation worked perfectly.
Just remember, be careful, design safe systems, and don't roast unattended.

Here Here RayO. This should be at the top of all homeroast posts.
"..............don't roast unattended."
Little roasters are fully capable of burning down houses same as the big
boys.  Although If the uninitiated or someone unfamiliar with SM's list
buys a table top roaster from the appliance store off the shelf that is
marketed by stocking it next to a "set it and forget it" drip
brewer................... you get the jest.
Thanks Tom for being the primary educator for many of us.
