Subject: corretto roast help

Hey guys,

I just started roasting with a corretto setup a few weeks ago. Everything was going great until my last roast. The bread machine right after first crack stopped and reported an E01 error - an overheating warning. Is there a way to easily disable the built in temperature sensor, or will insulation help?

While googling for an answer, I saw warnings against teflon coatings on bread pans. Is there an easy way to remove teflon, or is it not worth it?

If all else fails, is there a cheap bread machine that is known to work well? Thanks!

I've totally been there, man. That was a sinking feeling I don't want to experience again...

On mine, I was able to gently pry/pop the tabs that held the whole top on. This unit was a side-by-side affair with the bowl portion on the left and the control panel on the right.

Once I had the top removed, it was a simple matter of finding the temp probe wiring (looked like thermocouple wire) and disconnecting it from it's contact from the wall of the mixing chamber (not from the control board end). Then you can route this wire to outside the case (I did this through some venting louvers that were already in the case!) Replace top.

That solved my overheat issue. Now I've got to work on gaining manual control of the motor. With "dough mode", I am currently relegated to a 12 minute window to roast (this is after I wait for a 2 min interval of peroiodic mix, followed by 5 min of continuous mix, followed by a 5 min lull.) This initial period is OK for me as it allows me to pre-heat the roasting chamber and gather all my doo-dads (log book, scale, beans, tools for grabing the hot components.)

Hope that helps and happy roasting!

p.s. I meant to ask: Do you roast with some manner of lid, or is the roaster open? I've taken to removing the inner, metal portion of the lid hatch (remove any plastic/glass window and use that as a partial cover. You can close off the empty space around the heat gun nozzle with aluminum foil. This still allows for steam/smoke to escape, but keeps the temps consistent in the raosting chamber.

I striped the Teflon off my bread machine.   Chemical strippers didn't do anything.    What worked for me was wire brush attachments for my drill. As for keeping the bread maker going.  I opened it up and found where the power came in and traced the wires to the control board and yanked them.  Then I wired them directly to the motor.  Whenever I plug it in the motor runs now.I seem to remember from my research at the time that some types of the motors can't do that. PS: There are various tutorials on the internet.
