I checked the probe, it was ok. I reinstalled per Chris' suggestion. The teems got up into the upper 300's. Interesting thing, on P1 the temp fell 100 degrees at the 10 minute mark. It stayed down until the 15:30 mark.  I thought P1 was full power for the whole roast.

>> Now I am confused, not that this would be the first time.  I have completely cleaned the inside of my Behmor. I then mounted a thermocouple just behind the clip the bean drum rides in on the left side of the roaster.  It never measured higher than 270 degrees F. I was roasting 13 oz of Guatemalan. I used a 1:45 preheat without the beans. Roaster measured up to 178 before I cut it off. The beans roasted as well as I have been able to achieve with the Behmor. My laser temp probe registered 380 when I cracked the door and pointed the laser at the beans.  Can someone explain the difference in the two temps?
