GENERAL
INTRODUCTION
Vulcan-Hart Ovens are produced with
quality workmanship and material.
Proper
installation,
usage,
and
maintenance of your oven will result in
many years of satisfactory performance.
This manual is provided to assist
persons responsible for the operation
and maintenance of the oven with a
simple, but comprehensive understanding of its proper use.
We
recommend that you thoroughly read
this entire manual and carefully follow all
of the instructions provided prior to
placing the oven into operation.
As with any piece of food service
equipment, this oven system requires a
minimum of care and maintenance.
Recommended
procedures
are
contained in this manual and should
become a regular part of the operation
of the unit.
INSTALLATION
Before installing, verify that the electrical
service agrees with the specifications on
the rating plate located on the lower
back corner of the oven. If the supply
and equipment requirements do not
agree, do not proceed with unpacking
and installation. Contact your VulcanHart Customer Service Department
immediately.
UNPACKING:
The oven was inspected before leaving
the factory. The transportation company
assumes full responsibility for safe
delivery upon acceptance of the
Page 3
shipment. Immediately after unpacking,
check for possible shipping damage to
the oven.
If the oven is found to be damaged,
save the packaging material and
contact the carrier within 15 days of
delivery.
Carefully unpack and place in a work
accessible area as near the installation
position as possible.
1.
2.
Open the door and carefully
remove any packaging materials
and the retaining straps that hold
the wire plate racks or tray slides
and tray slide upright side
supports.
Peel off vinyl protection film from
oven.
CLEANING:
The oven should be thoroughly cleaned
prior to putting into service.
Use a mild soap and water solution to
clean the interior of the oven. Never
use harsh chemicals or abrasive pads to
clean the oven.
LOCATION:
For efficient oven operation, choose a
location that will provide easy loading
and unloading without interfering with
the final assembly of food orders. The
installation location must allow adequate
clearances for servicing and proper
operation.
VRT Models: If floor mounting, the
unit must be Sealed to the floor with
NSF Listed Sealant.

CLEANING
WARNING:
Always
UNPLUG
ELECTRICAL
POWER SUPPLY before cleaning.
Avoid splashing water into upper
areas of the oven to prevent damage
to
electrical
components
or
connections.
Never spray the unit with a hose.
Never use harsh chemicals
abrasive pads to clean the oven.
or
DAILY:
1.
Unplug electrical power supply.
2.
Allow oven to go through cooldown period before cleaning.
Page 7
HEAVY-DUTY CLEANING:
For heavy-duty cleaning, use warm
water, a degreaser, and a plastic,
stainless steel, or scotch-brite pad.
Never rub in a circular motion. Always
rub gently in the direction of the steel
grain. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry
with a soft cloth.
STAINLESS STEEL CARE
CLEANING:
Stainless Steel contains 70 – 80% iron,
which will rust if not properly maintained.
Stainless Steel also contains 12 – 30%
chromium, which forms an invisible
passive, protective film that shields
against corrosion.
If the protective film remains intact, the
stainless steel will remain intact.
However, if the film is damaged, the
stainless steel can break down and rust.
PREVENTIVE CARE:
To prevent stainless steel breakdown, follow these steps:
VCH & VRT SERIES OVENS
1.
F-38055 (11-09)
Never use any metal tools,
scrapers, files, wire brushes,
or scouring pads (except for
stainless steel scouring pads,)
which will mar the surface.
2.
Never use steel wool – which
will leave behind particles that will
rust.
3.
Never use acid-based or
chloride containing cleaning
solutions – which will break
down the protective film.
4.
Never rub in a circular motion.
Always rub gently in the direction
of the steel grain.
5.
Never leave any food products
or salt on the surface. Many
foods are acidic. Salt contains
chloride.
PRESERVING & RESTORING:
Special
stainless
steel
polishing
cleaners can preserve and restore the
protective film.
Preserve the life of stainless steel with a
regular application of a high-quality
stainless steel polishing cleaner, as a
final step to daily cleaning.
If signs of breakdown appear, restore
the stainless steel surface.
First,
thoroughly clean, rinse, and dry the
surface. Then, on a daily basis, apply a
high-quality stainless steel polish
according to manufacturer’s instructions.
HEAT TINT:
Darkened areas, called “heat tint,” may
appear on stainless steel exposed to
excessive heat. Excessive heat causes
Page 8
the protective film to thicken. This is
unsightly, but is not a sign of permanent
damage.
To remove heat tint, follow the routine
cleaning procedure. Stubborn heat tint
will require heavy-duty cleaning. To
reduce heat tint, limit the exposure of
equipment to excessive heat.
MAINTENANCE
WARNING;
The Oven and its parts are HOT. Be
very
careful
when
Operating,
Cleaning, or Servicing the Oven.
ALWAYS
UNPLUG
ELECTRICAL
POWER
SUPPLY
BEFORE
CLEANING OR SERVICING THE
CABINET.
DOOR GASKET:
At least once a week, thoroughly check
the door gasket for damage/wear. A
damaged gasket can cause inefficient
and unsatisfactory operation of the
oven.
If the gasket requires cleaning:
1.
Gently wash gasket using a
moist cloth, a mild detergent
solution, and warm water.
2.
Rinse with a fresh cloth
moistened in warm water to
remove all traces of detergent.
3.
Gently wipe dry with a clean dry
cloth.
Never apply food oils, or petroleum
lubricants directly to the gasket(s).
Petroleum
based
solvents
and
lubricants will reduce the gasket’s life.
