Topic: My Rosto's Down (3 msgs / 52 lines)
1) From: mikejfoley
  After only two months, my Rosto went down yesterday. It was at the
start of the third load, and it actually had a pretty good rest (I
usually do five loads). Problably the thermal fuse I've heard about. The
question is, shall I operate myself?
 One thing is for certain, I now realize the need for a backup roaster.
Hmmm, how much for overnight delivery.....

Sorry to hear another newer Rosto bites the dust. Is the symptom fan ok but
no heat? If so then yes most likely thermal fuse blown. And no, it's nothing
you did wrong. I've been hammering both my Rostos for two years never
*resting* between multiple batches. I can't say send it in or fix it
yourself for you. But if you do try it this may be of help:http://home.attbi.com/~mdmint/coffee/RostoFuse.htmMM;-)

Mike,
I just looked at your page! From what I can see, the only hot air 
roaster that uses a different heater section is the poppery ( the 
orginal). However, I've only been in a Hearthware once, and don't 
remember the heater section, so that could be an exception.
