The more recent(mid'02 & later) ALPS have an ambient air sensor.  Any chance 
it's covered in gunk or defective.  I think it is located in the "vent" slot 
located under the the logo P of the imprinted ALPs name (dump side, right 
side when facing the dump bin). Also, have you tried a totally different 
electrical socket.  Maybe an electrical line problem?

Noel,
The ambient sensor looks fine - clean as a whistle.
I had checked the line with my DMM during a recent roast and was getting
between 119 - 120v when the heater cycled on and off.  I think I'll run
it with my variac setup from the Rosto next time, just to be sure.  
Do you know if there is another sensor that reads the roast
chamber/heating element temperature or is the cycling of the heater
programmed on a timed basis?  
Bob
