Hi! New member starting with SR540. I am brand new and slowly getting better results with this roaster. I am interested in any roasting pointers.

I can't say anything about failure rate on the roasters, not sure anyone can, but parts are kinda pricey.

Any idea how it happened? Any warnings? My HT kinda makes a pop every now and then. Just wondering if I am going to be needing a new motor/gearbox soon myself. When you get to the repair, it would be awesome if you could post what you found the problem to be. I'd prob breakdown the gearbox and replace gears and keep it as backup. At least I'd give it a try.

My Hottop is 9 years old.
No problems like that.
I have changed the filters a few times.
I do take it apart for a deep clean once a year.
I clean the drum, glass door, connected parts.
Top filter housing.
After 10 or so roasts...
If it squeaks, clean it...Roflmao
