Topic: Broken Hottop KN-8828P-2 (3 msgs / 55 lines)
1) From: David H.G. Hipwell
Hi All,
 
I encountered my 1st failed roast yesterday.  Everything was going fine until the temp hit 390 - 395 F, and I think I was going into the last segment and increasing the fan speed to 4.  The roaster shut down without warning and stopped completely.  It was as if I'd plugged it out and back in.  I tried to get the roaster to cool down so I could start a new roast, but it just shut down again.  
 
After taking the gold knob and window components off, and giving it about 30 min to cool, I started another roast to be sure that last one wasn't a one-off experience.  It worked fine but repeated its behaviour as described above.  
 
Before I started the 1st roast, I had taken the back off to clean and vacuum the electronics compartment as it describes in the manual.  Could I have pulled something loose?
 
Any help on this would be a great help and relef.  
 
Thanks.

Contact Hot top. They had some defective mother boards that acted like
that. If you have one they will replace it for free

Hi David:
I have that same machine though I have not experienced that problem my view
is that it got too hot and the circuit ended your roast. What I am
concerned about is that it happened twice and that tells me it is most
likely something on the main board. How old is your machine? I would call
and ask them but my guess is the main board which if not under warranty you
will need to buy. I think about 185 if I remember from another machine I
still have yet to fix. I bought a newone.
please let us know what it is that happened.
thanks david,
giny
