I've never seen a reason to empty the chaff, but I currently use the Whirley Pop which has a ton of room in there.

Don't worry about the chaff, it shouldn't make an impact.

I wouldn't stop the roast and empty the chaff collector. Instead I'd just roast less beans until you get to the amount it takes that won't clog up the collector so fast.

I know with my IRoast 2 if the chaff collector gets too full the beans will burn very quickly. I've roasted two bean varieties that produces a ton of chaff and had to limit the amount I roasted because of it.
