Topic: Broken Behmor -- if so to speak (4 msgs / 91 lines)
1) From: Jeff Hayden
Close friend -- I got him started roasting a few years back -- now having problems with his beloved Behmor.  Starts fine.  Part way through the cycle, it powers off.  No error message -- just all power fails.  It's not under warranty.
Any ideas where the problem might lie?  Worth repairing -- have parts, he'd repair it -- albeit a year or two beyond the warranty?

Might be loss of the DC to the control panel (or the microcontroller
that runs it if that's separate).  Not sure why it would come back
after (am I reading too much into the above?) power cycling the
machine, though.  Overheating?  Would expect a cooling off period
if that were it.
Not sure if the regulator would be on the control board or the relay
board.  Got spares?

Could be a loose connection to the from PCB.  Contact me off-list and 
I'd be happy to troubleshoot it with you.  I've fixed hundreds.
It's fully worth fixing and can only be a couple things wrong.

Email Behmor tech support, if you haven't. I bet they would try to help.
