Always 1lb batches. The original motor gear box dies from lubricant
failure and a ridged drive coupling. The afterburner is like a light
bulb, it will fail, sometime. I run 2X clean cycle every 4 roasts and
vacuum after every roast. When I had it apart for parts replacement the
interior was chaff free. I only roast dry process Ethiopian and similar
coffees. Always use small grid drum. Roast to FC to FC+ usually.
I figure if it only eats $20.00/yr in maintenance cost then its a bargain.
