    Behmor 1600+ Shutdown

    I have had the unfortunate experience of my beloved Behmor shutting itself down after just achieving 1st crack on a 300g roast of Ethiopian Ghimbi.

    Profile P3D
    Temp according to the probe 344 degress Celcius.

    The shutdown did not trip any circuits in the house at all.

    No fire or anything but after the machine has cooed down application of power to the machine yields a no power result.

    Does anyone have any ideas ...

    The machine is regularly vacuumed inside and out so fod damage is not a issue. The Roast itself produced a reasonably large amount of chaff which I thought may have lead to an overheat err2. Alas no such warning.

    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Thank you all .....

    Log a job with Behmor tech support (they're very good), and if you bought it from Andy, he will also be able to help....and typically does so at an above exceptional level.

    You could try the self-diagnostic routine (hold down the 'start' button as you turn the power on). See:

    From personal experience I'd be guessing that you might need a new side printed circuit board.

    They have a thermal fuse which is one before the power goes to anything. IF that blows nothing will work. It shouldnt have but perhaps it did? If you are electrically inclined you could test it for continuity with machine unplugged.

    Cheers

    Silly question, but are you sure it wasn't the safety shut down? (did you hit start when the display flashed)

    No such thing as a silly question, only the one that isn't asked.

    No it was in the post safety shut down phase .....

    Hmmm ....... thanks Artman ..... where does this fuse reside. Tech support advised reseating clips ... done and no result so the thermal fuse may be a correct diagnosis.

    From me memory it is in the same location as the side wall temp sensor, under the same metal clip. If you pull the side panel off with the fan, trace the power lead and you will see the fuse inline before the wire goes to the board. it looks like this, but cant recall the temp rating of it (it is written on it): https://www.jaycar.com.au/192oc-thermal-fuse/p/ST3810

    It is crimped in line with the power supply wire. if you unplug roaster and have a multi meter you can test for continuity and quickly confirm or eliminate this as the culprit.

    Update ... no thermal fuse found. Removed the pcb and no obvious signs of heat damage. Traced the wiring from the plug all the way back and no continuity issues. I am thinking pcb?

    See excellent post #10 for the description and location of the thermal fuse.
