[Homeroast] Gene Cafe problem

My Gene Cafe refused to work the other day -- the lights come on but 
nothing happens when I push the start button (no heat, no rotation of 
the drum). We checked the fuse, and it was fine.

I spoke to Tim Skaling at Fresh Beans, who says it sounds like it 
needs a new chip.

Has anyone here replaced a chip? If so, how difficult is it? I have 
found instructions for replacing the heater assembly, which calls for 
taking the whole machine apart, but not for replacing a chip.
