    Behmor 1600 plus system self test results interpretation

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I searched on the interpretation of the results for the system self test without luck and am posting my findings so far.

    To perform self test: Unplug roaster, press and hold START, plug in roaster, release start.

    Here are the results of mine.

    r3.29 Software version
    230 Voltage selection
    0000 Main heating element
    1111 ?
    2222 Draw fan (top of roaster - afterburner circuit)
    3333 Internal light
    4444 Scroll fan (rear of roaster - internal roast chamber air flow)
    5555 High speed drum motor
    6666 Low speed drum motor
    7777 PC fans side and rear
    8888 ?
    9999 ?
    054C A or B temp
    blank
    054C A or B temp

    The above repeats itself again.

    I noticed the after burner element doesn't get triggered during the self test (confirmed working ok otherwise).

    Couldn't figure out what (if anything?) was triggered in steps 1, 8 and 9 and if the blank is deliberate between the 2 temp readings as they would generally be the same unless the roaster is hot (presumably this is the case).

    Cheers

    2222 OFF Afterburner, ON Draw fan (Exhaust Channel Fan)
    3333 OFF Draw Fan, ON Internal light
    4444 OFF Light, ON Scroll fan (rear of roaster - internal roast chamber air flow)
    5555 OFF Scroll Fan, ON Drum
    6666 ON Drum Low
    7777 OFF Drum, OFF Drum Low, ON DC Fans (right side cover and triangle housing over the side circuit board)
    8888 OFF DC Fans
    9999 (blank)
    054C Exhaust Temperature (in Celsius, minimum temp is 54C)
    (blank)
    054C Chamber Wall Temperature (in Celsius, minimum temp is 54C)

    Thanks Andy

    Interesting that my afterburner does not turn on at step 1111 but does function otherwise as intended during roasting?

    Just tried my other panel that throws err5 three seconds in to operation. The afterburner is activated during step 1111. Software is r3.33 on that one. Everything else works as above.

    Hopefully this info will make it easier for people chasing errors. Pretty cool and useful feature.

    Cheers

    Afterburner not testing was a minor bug in v3.29... and as you found, it was fixed in the next released version (v3.33).

    'Tis cool and useful... Thanks!

    Hmmmm. My Behmor recently stopped working. No error message it just refuses to start when I hit start (or if I just hit cool). I ran this self-test above, and it cycles through from '1111' to '6666' then switches off. Have logged a job with Behmor tech support. Will update when I hear something.

    Just wondering whether you had a resolution to this issue.

    My Behmor has been in storage for a couple of years. Being recently retired, I want to return to roasting. Attempted to run a small batch. Roaster displays r3.29 and then runs through the sequence you describe before stopping after displaying 6666.

    Best wishes, Russell

    Hi Russell,

    I ended out replacing the main control board, which is fiddly, but does not require any special skills. There was no more specific diagnosis IIRC. Roaster has been running smoothly ever since (famous last words.....).
