I just received my Bullet roaster. I performed the preliminary mechanical check, in which I had to tighten the pulley screw that screws in the shaft. I also managed to install the drivers and update the firmware to 475.
The real trouble began during my first seasoning roast, where all of a sudden, 4:45 minutes into the roast, my roaster became unresponsive, and all the parameters on the roaster and on Roast Time froze.
What I mean is, the timer stayed at 4:45, the power at P7, Fan at F2, and drum speed at D9. The profile stopped in its track and bean and drum temperature readings stayed stuck in time as well. No buttons on the roaster worked as well as on Roast Time. This went on for awhile until I unplugged the roaster as a last resort. The roaster wasn’t hot, so I plugged it back in and after a minute the same thing happened.
I even tried it without the laptop and Roast Time app.
I don’t know what’s going on. It preheated properly to 230degrees Celsius like it said in the manual for version 1.5. It commanded correctly when to charge it with beans, and it started the roast cycle before it became unresponsive.
The beans I had in there are still green, they just got nice and warm.
There is no error message or code, and it did heat the roasted properly during the preheat cycle.
Has anyone experienced this?
