Subject: iRoast 2 problem: temperature stuck at lukewarm
I'm a roasting novice and I was lucky enough to receive an iRoast 2 as
a
Christmas gift (I'm in Australia so I assume I have the Asian model).
But
although I've followed the instructions carefully I've been unable to
get it
working properly. The roast temperature never rises above lukewarm.

This happens with all profiles -- the default profiles and those I've
programmed myself. When I start a roast things appear to work as they
should:
the fan speed changes according to the stage of the roast, etc. But
the beans
never turn brown -- at the end of the roast they have only a light
brown
tinge. If I press the temp button at any time during a roast I get a
readout
of "020C", and the roaster, and the air it emits, feel lukewarm.
Pushing the
"up" button during a roast to increase the temperature has no effect.

I'm really hoping I don't need to send the roaster in for repairs.
Does anyone
have any ideas?

Makes sense. Just as I feared.

It doesn't bother me. The buzz of being able to do my own roasting
outweighs concerns about noise.

Thanks for the reply.

The only heat you're getting is from the motor. Send it back for
repair.

How do you like the noise?
