[Homeroast] Trouble roasting today...

I had an Err6 over a year ago. The drum stopped rotating. I unplugged and
rotated the drum a bit by hand, then restarted. Has worked fine ever since.
Since I have an early Behmor, maybe I should think about regreasing?

When my motor died I found that he actual motor was still OK but the 
gear box lubricant had dried out.  If you keep trying to make it run you 
burn out the  motor though.  Getting original motor out and replaced is 
a real chore if its an early version original roaster.  The replacement 
has a redesigned mounting which makes replacement a simple job.  The 
high temperatures experienced in the chamber are what causes the 
original grease to fail.
