Hi! Looking for a legacy inlet temp sensor on 13 yr old Gene Cafe. It seems they've changed it and now you need new mother board and new sensor. Any ideas where I can find compatibile old one? Mark

Beginner having a heck of a time . . . HELP

Another way to control or lower the max temperature of your popper is to use fewer beans. Less beans provide less resistance to the heated air, which prevents heat from building up as high.

Imagine a hair dryer with an object placed near the nozzle... the hair dryer will quickly overheat and shut down because the heat is building up. Allow the air to flow more and the dryer performs.

I generally add beans to the popper until they slow down but do not stop spinning. If they stop spinning, that means you're mostly blocking the airflow, which will build up heat too fast (even with stirring).

As David and Bill said, though, it's no big deal. It's about as important as the exact temperature first crack starts. B)

most people put what is fondly known as a chimmey on their poppers, I did mine, still do when I want to roast only enough for a pot of something new. most people make them out of a soup can, I find that one of them little red camping lantern globes works great, bottom side sits nicely on top of the popper while the top of the thing is smaller than the top of the popper which tends to choke the air flow down some. The glass globe is also clear so you can see down into the popper without getting directly over the top.
don't know where your located at but I found mine at a Acadamy Sports Store in the camping section.

happy roasting

and the madness continutes

I agree with dja on the chimney idea. I also use the lantern glass, but mostly hurricane lamp glasses. Everytime I go through a thrift store, I pick up any hurricane lamp glasses that are around. Upside: you can see through them, they are inert, they handle the heat superbly and you can wipe them clean if you want. Downside: I break them every so often because of clumsiness.

Good luck.
