Fresh Roast 500 intenals / cleaning
8675309
So I've finally got my SR500 to perform for me over the past several months by drilling a hole in the chaff collector and inserting a temp probe and that gave me very good information -

For instance on the low heat setting I could leave it there all the way into FC ( around 400-410 ) and move to medium setting way into 2C ( 450-455 )...

Now I'm finding that the low setting barely gets me to the 350 mark and medium setting may get me to the 400 mark but I gotta pump to the high setting to get to 425-440-455 etc... slower too.

The machine makes a whir noise like it's losing power when I adjust the fan speed ( nothing else is drawing power ) and I wonder if the lifespan (18 months??) is all it has. Can some internal part be cleaned or am I looking at buying another machine? I basically leave the fan speed on high and drop it to low fan speed if I need a quick kick-up in temp.

I live in Arizona so it's dry as heck out here, machine is outside it's not a moisture issue.
It's bad luck to be superstitious

Could be the motor brushes wear.
If the motor is the same Johnson/Mabuki RS-385 24v, as in most poppers, you can find easily an replacement.
