Board work well BUT new "Unattended Safety Switch" future is very disturbing

Board designed to fit my 2007 GeneCafe unit. Replacing old board is not difficult. power wiring must be extended and power must be board removed.
The new Unattended Safety Switch future is very disturbing and inconvenient
for user who safely roast coffee beans without jumping three times to push the bottom with every roast for a past 15 years, but so far is no way to disable it.
In general electronic part work well.

works But.....

Replaced the boards and it now works, But, I do not like the alarm that puts the roaster into cooling cycle if you do not push the button. I cannot hear it go off, should also have a small led light to give a warning.

Wrong part

They sent me a totally different board than the one pictured. The one pictured is exactly the one I need

Wonderful Experience!

I've had my CBR-101 for over 8 years and have been using it regularly, producing over 15 roasts per month. A few months ago it developed some heating issues where it couldn't reach my set-point of 438 degrees. I contacted Gene Cafe's support team. Rather than trying to sell me something right off the bat they (Celina) wanted to know exactly what the scenario was and all of the specifics involved with this issue. What a concept! A company that has actual humans involved with their customers that doesn't just direct you to a FAQ page.
Long story short, with Celina's guidance the problem was isolated to the heating element. I purchased it and viola! it started working again. I have since had a couple of other issues (totally expected after some 1500 roasts). Again, Celina took the time to gather the details of the problem and provided expert advice and recommendations as to what I needed to order. This time it was the PCB board and temperature sensor. These were ordered and promptly shipped. I installed them and now everything is working perfectly again.

I can't say enough good things about this company. They are reminiscent of the old days where things were repaired rather than the "go to" method of today where we just buy new and throw out the old. How novel for a company to actually sell repair parts that one can purchase and make what's old new again. There will come a day when my roaster needs to be put out to pasture. When that day comes I will purchase another CBR-101.
Thank you Gene Café!!! and a special thanks to Celina.
