Re: No 2nd Crack

tl;dr: Yes. The Behmor's sidewall sensor is designed to balance the roast chamber heat, the IR heating from the lamps, and a bit of cooling from the backside (electronics & motors chamber). There's a thermostat-like action that ...

Re: Extra Time in Manual Mode?

Thanks for all that, Don. Just goes to show, once again, that no two Behmors work quite the same. In going on 5 years now I've rarely had a roast (the majority being ½ lb batches) finish without that sidewall-sensor controlled thermostat action near the end. ...

Re: Extra Time in Manual Mode?

... end of the roast, and the "development time ratio" as the percentage of this time to the total roast time. A typical City+ roast in my Behmor on an automatic setting does not achieve anywhere close to a 20% development time ratio, but it can be achieved using the Behmor in manual mode, ...

Re: Extra Time in Manual Mode?

... their page)... So how did you learn about this? Manual mode is intended for people who either know what they are doing or want to learn, and the Behmor manual stresses that the roaster should never be left unattended during a roast, which is doubly important in manual mode. I wouldn't call the ...

Re: Extra Time in Manual Mode?

... the oven wall temperature gets too high if the exhaust is not restricted. And you can set the timer to 25:30 (the maximum possible time on the Behmor) by selected 1 pound, Profile P5 and Program D, then adding 2:30 with the + button, before starting the roast and entering manual mode. If this ...

Extra Time in Manual Mode?

One thing that is not clear in the SM video on the Behmor 1600 Manual mode is: how much extra time can I add (using the + or - buttons)? Say I'm roasting a 1/2 lb. manually, am I still limited to five presses of the add button like when I'm in one of the auto programs?

Re: My Behmor 1600 drum just stopped turning. :-(

The crimped side of those slide-on connectors can be pretty reliable, but they need a proper tab to mate with. I suspect the Behmor's production volume is about an order of magnitude too small to expect a custom motor with such tabs - solder on connections like it has are vastly more ...

Re: Roasting Smoke; Harmful Deposits?

Thanks for the info CucamongaDan, I did try roasting out on the covered porch and it worked fine. There are possible concerns with the Behmor when using different outlets as power levels can vary, but the one I used seemed fine. I also recognize the aspect of the roasting scents and them ...

Re: My Behmor 1600 drum just stopped turning. :-(

Thanks Ira. Indeed, I popped the cover and the negative lead of the motor is broken off at the solder joint. An easy fix at least. I'm surprised they didn't use some sort of quick-connect for the motor, the tiny soldered wires on something that vibrates that much is kind of weak. :-(

Re: My Behmor 1600 drum just stopped turning. :-(

THe drum runs on 6 or 12V depending on where it is in the cycle. Take the side off and see if it's something simple like it came unplugged. You could also try unplugging it and then hooking power to the motor and see if it turns. If it does, the control board is suspect, if it doesn't, the motor wou...
