Topic: HWP diagnosis & the nest generation HWP (2 msgs / 60 lines)
1) From: NOEL HONG
The HWP failed yesterday.  LEDs oscilating between roast & cooling cycle @ 
~1sec intervals with the fan blowing full bore with miminal heat. Checked 
with Hearthwear service people. Might be the PC board and/or heating unit.  
Any way of determining which or both? Total cost for replacing both parts is 
~$25 + shipping.  Anyone with experience replacing the PC board and heater 
unit? According to the tech, the HWPs replacement will be released March 
'03.  The capacity is ~doubled, quieter machine, MSRP ~$100. Might just 
convert the HWP to cooling unit for the ALPs & wait for the new HWP.

My HWP lost it's mind like this a couple of times.  Just unplugged it - was
not very hot and let it sit.  Now if it has been running for a while - don't
unplug it-may fry the roaster.  Took about 3 tries to get it's mind back and
roast.
If the new HW is $100 and works well-wow wow wow.
