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

Cleaning the roast chamber on a Gene Cafe
Mark McCornack
Hi folks. Another question I have for Gene Cafe users (this should be a fairly simple one).
I have a machine that’s been in service for a good long while, and I’m looking for the best method to clean off the baked on coffee bean oils that have clung to the inside of the glass over the years. I know there are some aggressive solvents out there, but as coffee slated for consumption will be in the drum after cleaning, I’m reluctant to just use anything. Also reluctant to ruin good coffee, or my own internal organs in the aftermath by using the wrong stuff.
So what’s the word on the street for the best stuff to use to de-soot my old roast chamber? Anybody got a favorite or advice?
Regards...Mark

My turbo oven roaster has a glass top. I use simple green/scotch brite pad and scrape most of it off with a straight edge razor.

No need for an aggressive solvent, using the usual kitchen dish cleaner Axion, to clean the same glass lid as JackH.

Because it is dish/food safe, I assume it is also safe for cleaning the roaster glass parts...
However, a turbo oven lid has no direct contact with the beans, so take it accordingly...
