Good evening, I have a GC from a few days, I roasted only three lots (all of Sidamo GR2), to see the developments. I read a lot and I understood that the temp of the GC that I read on the display is that of the outgoing air and not of the bean. I read that many of you preheat, at 100 ° and then after 5 minutes they raise the temperature to 240 or 250 ° so far everything is ok. Then I read that after 1C the temp is lowered to 232 °, generally around the minute 11 or 12. And here's my problem, my temperature does not rise, for example at minute 8 I'm at 202 °, at 12 minute I'm at 218 ° and I reach 232 ° only at minute 18. I think there is something wrong, I do not understand. I also checked with an instrument the absorption in Volt, always ra 224 and 225, here in Italy we have the 220V, like you. I also did two tests without beans and the temperature goes up faster, for example, minute by minute 8 I got 224 °, against 202 ° with beans, at 12 minutes I got 242 ° and I reached 250 ° a minute 14. I also tried without chaffer, (useful finally to hear 1C that generally comes to me around 15 minutes with 226 °) but things do not change. Do you have any ideas?
