Which chaff tray do you have? The old tall one or the new low one?  I 
have the old one and I line it with aluminium foil shiny side to the 
drum. It sped up my roasts quite a bit though the door open trick 
takes a lot longer and there is nothing to see through the window. I 
roast 12 to 13 ounces on 1lb P2B with a 2 minute or so preheat with 
the beans in the roaster and usually hit first just as the power 
drops.  The cycling means that you've hit the thermostat limit 
temperature and the machine is trying to maintain temperature. That's 
also what happens during the power drop stage.
