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?

First Bread Machine roaster, but it's running backwards
frostcall
Hello all, I've been roasting for a few years now using a whirley pop but I decided to up my game and move to a BMHG setup. I read several threads and thought I had it all figured out. When I roasted my first batch in the bread machine, I noticed that the paddle was running in reverse, going backwards compared to how it should run. This causes the pan to come loose while roasting which is less than ideal. I have attached a photo of my wiring with hopefully convenient labeling of wires. Do I simply need to swap Motor Red (MR) and Motor White (MW) to get it to run clockwise / the correct way?

welcome to forum
swapping wires to reverse rotation usually works for DC motors, not for AC, as this...

Well darn. At least that means I probably wired it correctly!

UPDATE: So I swapped Motor Red (MR) and Motor White (MW) to reverse the flow of electricity and it worked! It now runs clockwise (aka, the correct direction) and nothing blew up. :) Grin

We like success stories!

Let us know how the roasts come out when you get used to this one.
