A clogged outflow will cause symptoms that look like that. I ran into this a couple years ago. Tom Skaling recommended
I boil the output filter for a few minutes to remove the crud that builds up (an there was a LOT of crud that had built
up). After that mine worked fine again.
If you haven't done that, give it a try and see if it helps.
> 18 month old Gene Cafe. Moderate use -- 1-2 roasts per average week.
> Worked well until now. Turns adequately. Pushes through air - lower volume than my other roasters, but I'm thinking
> that's probably the normal volume for a Gene Cafe.
> Suddenly stopped heating the air. I'm assuming it's the heater assembly, but welcome any ideas there.
> Where might I turn for replacement parts -- or even repair if it's cost effective -- for what has been my favorite
> roaster thus far?
> Thanks, in advance, for any help you can offer.
