Posted Sun Oct 9, 2011, 9:02am Subject: Belmor drum drive bolt
When starting up my roast this morning I noticed the drum wasn't turning or rotating. I checked the square drive and it just spinned with no motor resisance, it just came out in my hand when I pulled on it linearly. I took off the side cover and found the bolt and nut which holds the drive to the motor shaft. Anybody had this happen before? If so, what is the best access to replace as I got fat fingers. Can I access the drive shaft by removing the afterburner?
I'm thinking of replacing the bolt/nut with a split cotter pin as I can get easily get access to the pin.
Behmor contacted me, even after I mispelled their name!!! Thanks tahoejoe, the instructions were great and I'm back to roasting. I still love my roaster especially after sampling the ethophian tchembe.
