Greetings, Alpenrosters, I have a Bravi I've never used.  Is there any way to extend (slow) a roast after first crack with one of these? I usually use the Behmor, and employ the door dance, but with the stock Bravi, it seems that opening the door a bit would just shut down the roast entirely, instead of slowing the heating process.  Any thoughts?  Happy Roasting, robert yoder

4) From: Michael Vanecek
Thanks a million! I went ahead and ordered that Radio shack one - much 
cheaper and no shipping since it'll come to the store here in town. You 
mention in that thread that it must be crimped in rather than soldered? 
And, where do you cut the original wires to splice this in? There's a 
fabric sleeve on it that I suppose would be good to not cut if at all 
possible, right?
Be well,
Mike

Hi Robert,
After the start button is initiated & the roast is progressing, opening the door will not have any effect on shutting off the roast.

Cut the old thermal fuse right at the terminus of the old connections. The 
new thermal fuse will come with a 2 crimping ferrules. Don't cut the thermal 
fuse's sleeve..
Slide the "snake skin" feel to it sleeve down off of the old connections. 
When the new fuse is in, just side it back up. I have pics on different 
threads on the 2 links I provided that show this & lots of other stuff.
Regards,
Craig.

Thanks! I only saw the one pic with the A and B pointing to the
overlimit and the fuse, but I think I get the idea. Can the sleeve be
removed and put over the replacement Radio-shack fuse? I ordered four
fuses just to have spares and in case my other Alp does the same thing.
These things are 11 years old and still going strong, except for that
fuse issue. 
Be well,
 Mike

No crimping ferrules on the Radio Shack thermal fuse sadly. I'm now 
hunting for similar - they're surprisingly hard to find around here and 
I know online the shipping will be like 100 times the price of the 
product itself.
Be well,
Mike

Get a high temp ring terminal and cut the ring off.  If all else 
fails ask me and I'll put a couple in the mail.

Well der - that's a good idea. We got plenty of ring-terminals at work. 
What's the difference between high-temp and regular? I figured steel was 
steel.
Be well,
Mike

High temp is usually nickel plated steel, low temp is usually tin 
plated brass or copper.

Great. Found some and performed the repair. Did a dry run and cool-down 
- looks like this 11 year old Alp still has a few more years left.
Be well,
Mike
