I read somewhere that higher elevations have faster roast time and require somewhat lower temperatures. air is thin and has less Oxygen

Yes, 1st off, you must use only Panama Esmeralda Geisha beans and be sure to only roast on Saturdays. Actually, this isn't completely true. Please post in all about roasters forum. Thx!

I’m at 9,000 feet elevation, is there any special adjustments that need to be made to roast using an SR 540 at this elevation?

Burning out a motor on BM?
SturdNerd
Hey there! I had a BM roaster for about two years before it finally died on me (hundreds of pounds). Since then, I've made three others the same way and they only seem to last a month or so before the motor just dies. Are there any pitfalls I should be looking out for or things I'm doing wrong?

I was wondering if the 120V was too much for the motor to handle with regular usage (up to 5 lbs back-to-back)? I believe it is a 600W motor, and perhaps there was some sort of voltage regulator in the circuit boards I keep discarding? I'm no electrician, but have a basic understanding of how things work. (and I have a fire extinguisher handy at all times..... thankfully I haven't had to use it!)

Thanks!

It could be that you are tripping some internal thermal protection fuse in the motor (for fire protection). I don't think these bread machine motors were designed for continuous use. You may have to rest the unit for a while between roasts.

I have seen these devices in other consumer products. Most have to be replaced once they blow.
