"Hey Tao,  Their # is (828) 855-1895. (The first bad sign is that the number's hard to find!) I've never removed the bowl before-it would involve quite a bit of disassembly! The hair dryer's the way to go. I've been…"

"Thanks for the responses...I am too far away, and the logistics too difficult and expensive to try to send the machine back and replace it.  I have tried the calibration reset recommended by Kumar, and it seemed to help for about a 1/2…"

"Hi Tao,  The same happened with my Santha when I bought it a year ago. The sound was from the motor. I exchanged it and the replacement machine was slightly better. Took it to a machine shop and was told that it was just a really cheapo motor.…"

Steven Shipler replied to Sirius Chocolate's discussion Santha Melangeurs
"Often times the squealing sound is just metal on metal from the wheels. I am assuming you bought it new and this is probably the case. I had the same thing with my Cocoatown small grinder. You just have to let it run sadly until it stops and kind of…"

"Hola, I just got my Santha Spectra 20...and it squeals...high pitched, unbearable, screeching...kinda like living inside a forest of chicaras (if you live in CR, you know what I mean).  Is it the belt?  Is it something else?  Any…"

"I have replaced the belt once. Next time I'll go for fiberglass- thanks! I don't think that the belt is the problem, but I'll check just in case. When I first got the machine, the motor made a really high pitched (bad) sound. I took…"

Ben Rasmussen replied to Sirius Chocolate's discussion Santha Melangeurs
"Hi Madeleine, Are you sure it's the motor? Have you replaced the belt already? If not, I'd do that first as the stock belts are not great and wear out pretty quickly. Per Brad's suggestion a few years ago, I only use the fiberglass…"

Madeleine Siegel replied to Sirius Chocolate's discussion Santha Melangeurs
"Hi Brad, (If you're still there!) Do you have any recommendations for a replacement motor for the santha 20?  The machine is less than 6 months old but I've noticed that the drum has been spinning more slowly.. Thanks! Madeleine"

"just wanted to say there are still lots of antioxidents found in roasted cacao and if you are truly trying to eat chocolate just to get antioxidents you would have to eat alot, and that is not balanced. If you want antioxidents then eat some…"

beth campbell replied to Sirius Chocolate's discussion Raw Chocolate
"two questions,  have you ever tried roasted cacao without refined sugar? Are you comparing chocolate bars made with roasted or raw or just the bean itself?  Also it seems there is alot of variation in temperature in the definition of raw.…"
