Just ran into something odd. With the funnel in place on the bean chute, I usually just up-end the measuring cup into the funnel (550 gm). The beans normally feed into the drum without issue. The previous two times they seemed to hang up in the funnel and it took some coaxing to get them thru. When it happened again today (3rd time?) I looked from the rear of the duct (chaff collector off so I could see) and found the duct had a bunch of beans that had gone into the duct instead of the drum!
I apologize for the image quality. The beans at the far end (bean chute end) are out of focus but still distinguishable.
The Fan speed when I charged was F2 so I doubt they were being sucked in toward the chaff collector. I haven’t removed the front plate yet (it’s cooling). So the question for y’all is…
Has anyone dealt with this before? Since it’s happened now 3 times in succession I have to believe it’s not happenstance.
