@Nomad As a general rule Roasting should not exceed 20 min to second crack What you are describing is baking

gene café shut down
hello, im from france and I have a problem, when i plugged it, the led goes on and then i push start and .... nothing, it shut down, not led nothing.... i have mesures 18v on output from the transformer (230v) the tension is correct? what can i check? thanks a lot!! ????????
Every radiator is a voltage regulator: 3.3 or 5V for processor, 12V for cooler, and a third I guess could be the static relay for main agitation motor.
Try measure every pin and find if there are relevant voltages delivered.
thank you i can’t mesure because yet he roaster shutdown in 10 sec max with no power and instantly when i press the red button....
Do you see any error messages (E1 - E4) on the display?

I think this unit also has an interlock switch preventing operation if the door is open. Check seating of the cover.

KKTO Roaster.
hello, no, I can’t seee any message... the display switch off immediately
When modded a Gene, operating it completely uncased, didn't noticed any such thing as a cover switch.

Power off after 10 seconds sounds to me as a poly fuse, a special type of reseatable fuse that not need replacement. Electronics usually trip instant, does not have a warming time. And they don't recover, especially when magic smoke is released Grin
Check on the boards for a component looking as this:
Can you confirm me, the transformer is 12v ac output or 18v??? Thank you! I suspect it.
Roasting glass removed nope, because there is a sensor in the left wheel, sensing the glass presence, and also the whole assembly proper rotation.
But transparent cover has no switch, you can roast with cover up or removed.
Same for the upper half of the main body, removing it expose everything, but let machine operate as normal.


[quote]because there is a sensor in the left wheel /quote]

Can't see any sensor.....
Check the label of the plugs in the left side of mainboard: motor, temp sensor, and the next plug, if I remember well...
Ok I see It, it's the sensor for the wheel position, si I've receveid the transformer and guess it.... It's not it fault.... :( I'm pretty shrue it's the power card. May have to change it too..
