There is/was a thread about this same thing a couple of weeks ago on coffeegeek. It actually showed some pics of the hack.

But the manufacturer is adamantly against hacking the product for liability reasons. (fyi). Maybe you can find it on the website. On the coffee roasting forum.

Currently not at home so can't really look and link for you now. Possibly tonight I might can.

Subject: [Homeroast] broken behmor question

Hi List,

So a few years ago, I set my Behmor roaster on fire when I left coffee in it
for too long. Since then the electrical and mechanical components work fine,
but since the inside is so blackened ‹ and believe me I have scrubbed and
scrubbed ‹ it won't fully roast batches! I think it doesn't reflect heat
efficiently any more and the roast always stalls and goes into cool-down
mode way too early. (Sometimes before hitting first crack, I think.)

My question is: is there any way to hack the Behmor to keep the heating
element on all the time no matter what? I recognize that my history with the
machine makes this sound like a terrible idea but I promise to stay by it
and be careful. I have only basic mechanical skills but I'm intrepid and
don't have much to lose by pulling the thing apart. If not, I think I'll
just have to throw the thing out, which is sad because everything still sort
of works.
