Like the death of an old friend

At long last, after six years and several hundred pounds of coffee, my AeroRost II electric roaster finally gave up the ghost. It appears to be some sort of electrical malfunction inside the device that is causing the element to fail to maintain the proper temperature and is also causing the halogen lamp to shut off/burn out.

All is not lost, however, as I have a brand new Micro TostaCaffe and a cool-down pan on order. Hopefully, it will be here soon, and I can get back to the business of roasting.
