Failure to hold heat

New roaster here. I seem to have an intermittent issue with the roaster maintaining temperature. During 3 separate roasts today- this occurred:
-150 g sample size
-roaster preheats normally to 230 C
-Roast begins
-At about 150 IBTS the ROR starts plummetting until it is in negative territory. (P is at 9, I lower fan to 2 or 1- no effect)
-The IBTS temp flatlines at 150 and never rises above.
-I dump yellow beans!

Any ideas what I am doing wrong

I don’t have answers for you since I’ve never roasted at 150g. However, on RoastWorld if you to the “Discover” option under “Roasts” you can filter on max/min of 150g roasts and get a search result of other folks’ 150g roast profiles. It may be a place to start to study profiles to give another roast plan a try and see if you still have the same issues. Or roast a 300/350g batch(which I think many of us do) and see if you have the same problem. If you do then something else with the roaster is going on. I can’t even tell if any of the other profiles are reasonable, but this one appears reasonable to me that might be helpful for you to either playback or do an overlay roast to see if you still run into the same problems with the roast.

I am fairly new to the bullet and also have never roasted 150g. I usually roast either 454g or 550g. I could be mistaken but it looks to me like your roasters heating is lowering or shutting down. Did you get any error messages or check the info button during any of your roasts.

The curves make no sense- it’s as though line voltage dropped to a very low level yet you apparently had no error code(s) (ErC). Going to P9 seems to have done nothing. It strikes me that the roaster may be running at lower than spec’ed line voltage. You can confirm that in Roast mode by clicking the “i” button (upper right) and verifying you have appropriate Net Line Voltage level for your Bullet (120 VAC or 220 VAC).

If line voltage is the culprit, an ErC should have been thrown. You can check for Error codes using the 2nd tab in the Info window (the “i” button mentioned above). Once the roaster has been shut off the codes are lost. However, the data including error codes will have been saved to the server. You should be able to reach out to Support and they can tell you what any errors were.

I have checked your logs and unfortunately your induction board has some problem with the coil. Not a problem I have seen before for the 120V, so I think Aillio will want to have it back for inspection. Please contact them for a replacement.

This looks like you are correct.
