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

peveleth, It is better if you start a post in the forum with your question. These shouts go away in time.

Is it the fan or the heating element? Your first post says fan, the last post element.

In 5 years, I've replaced the element 4 times, but then, I'm about to cross 500 pounds in mine. I roast a lot in it. The last element I put in is one I repaired and it's lasted the longest. Do you still have your old ones? I can tell you what to do, or ship me one or two, I'll fix 'em and send 'em back.

Nope, no way to add a bean probe. I've built roasters with a bean probe and still love my Gene Cafe.


Hate to revive an old thread, but can someone PLEASE explain the process to fix the heating element? Mine failed last night (wire broke right near the crimp) and I'd love to repair it myself, but can't find the instructions anywhere. Thanks in advance!
I have some instructions in PDF format I will Email to you.

Welcome to Homeroasters!

If you have a photo of the broken wire/connector, I can help you find a new connector.

I just sent Glen notes based on my memory.

It's true I never posted how I did my own repair.

I have fear of liability issues.

Respect the bean.

Hi Jack & John
Would greatly appreciate it if you would send me the info also.
Many thanks
