Introduction
This manual contains instructions for the installation, operation, care, and sharpening
of the 1000S premium slicer. It is recommended that all operators familiarize
themselves with this manual prior to operating the slicer.
Inspection:
All UNIVEX slicers are inspected and tested at the factory; however, they should be
inspected carefully by the person making the installation for loose, damaged or broken parts. Any
damages, imperfections or shortages should be reported to thedealer or UNIVEX and shipping
carrier.
Warning: After slicer has been inspected, wash slicer completely with warm water and
mild soap. For safety, follow the cleaning instructions on Pages 6 - 7.
Installation:
The most efficient installation of your slicer will depend upon the layout of your kitchen. Locate
your slicer where it will save steps for the operator and be sure to provide sufficient clearance
around it for ease of maintenance and cleaning, as well as for efficient and safe use. Ensure the
surface is level and flat before installation. Slicer should be operated on a sturdy bench or table
with the height determined to suit the operator. It is most important that the forearm of the operator
be at the proper level for ease and safety of operation, as well as for maximum production. This
height is considered optimum when the carriage handle (Overview [10]) of the slicer is at
approximately the height of the operator's elbow when standing.
Important:
Warning/Caution: Before making electrical connections, CHECK the specifications on the
nameplate to make sure that they agree with those on your electrical service. A grounding type
three-terminal plug is provided for safety. If you do not have a mating receptacle, have a qualified
electrician provide one with grounding provisions in accordance with local safety codes.
IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS:
It is a violation of United States Department of Labor regulations to permit operation of the slicer
by any person under the age of 18 years.
Warning:
The slicer knife is extremely sharp! Never touch the knife, always keep hands and fingers clear of
the knife. Never run slicer without the guard and all other parts in place and securely fastened.
Take extra care to avoid accidents by keeping the knife guard and sharpening assembly cover ON
at all times. When the machine is not in use, the slice adjustment knob should be turned fully back
to the closed position (beyond "0") so that the knife edge is not exposed
Observe the cleaning instructions on Pages 6 - 7 for best results and for safety. Also remember to
always turn off the slicer and disconnect the electrical supply cord before cleaning. When slicing,
always move the carriage using only the carriage arm handle (Overview [10]). Do not
hold or push the carriage from any other place.

SLICE ADJUSTMENT
Warning: Dial-type knob adjustment (Overview [12]) allows for slice thickness ranging
from paper thin up to .875". Dial graduations allow you to precisely set up specific slice thickness
for various needs. Please note that the numbers labeled on the slice adjustment knob are for
reference only and do not indicate any specific unit of measure. When not in use, always return knob
back to its fully closed position (beyond "0") so that the knife edge is not exposed.
POSITIVE HOLD CARRIAGE
Caution: A last slice gravity feed grip (Overview [3]) is provided which can be locked out
of the way when not required. Do not use this last slice device to work the carriage back and forth.
Use only the carriage arm handle (Overview [10]). Always make sure the carriage is
positively secured to the slicer by checking to see that the carriage arm knob (Overview [9]) is fully tightened.
PROTECTIVE GUARD
Warning: The protective guard (Overview [4]) covers the knife edge completely except at the forward edge
where slicing will be performed. This forward edge is covered by the edge of the fence, but only when the
slice adjustment is completely closed.The knife guard (Overview [6]) can be removed for cleaning by
unscrewing the knife guard knob (refer to p.6 figure 2 [1]). For safety, keep the knife guard on at all

SHARPENING INSTRUCTIONS
This slicer is equipped with a knife having a concave or hollowed surface for superior slicing quality. Of
course, any knife, however superior, must be sharpened regularly and properly in order to produce not only
the highest quality slices, but also to allow it to maintain its productivity. The knife sharpener (Figure 10) on
this machine is a fence mounted design. Since the sharpener is not exposed during the slicing of product,
the stones remain free of food contamination and in the best possible condition for sharpening. Remember
that before sharpening you need to clean the slicer, then sharpen, clean, and then sanitize.
clean-sharpen-clean-sanitize (refer to cleaning instructions on pages 6 - 7 and sanitizing on page 8)
Important: The following sharpening procedure will provide high quality sharpening results and should
also be followed for safety considerations:
1. Warning: Keep away from the knife edge. (we also recommend using cut proof gloves)
2. The knife cutting area should be clean and free from food, especially grease. Grease will ruin the ability
of a grinding stone to sharpen an edge. If cleaning is necessary, follow the procedure outlined on Pages
6 - 7. Remember to unplug the electrical supply cord.
3. Pull the carriage all the way back towards the front of the slicer. Lift the last slice device
(Overview [3]) all the way up and rotate into the stored position. Loosen sharpener Locking
Knob Assembly (Figure 10 [1]). Lift sharpener assembly (Figure 10) and place it on the top of the fence
with the body of the sharpener on the right side of the fence and the mounting knob (Figure 11 [1]) on the
left side of the fence.
4. Completely open the slice adjustment so that the knife edge is at the maximum slice thickness.
Warning: Keep away from the knife edge.
5. Slide the carriage towards the blade until the plastic bead of the sharpener (Figure 11 [2]) drops into the
notch on the top of the fence. The plastic bead should now be resting flush with the top edge of the fence
(the carriage should be moved slightly so that it is not touching the sharpener body). Tighten the knob
(Figure 10 [1]) until sharpener is secure to the fence. Do not tighten too much.
6. Turn slicer ON. Rotate the sharpener dial downward (Figure 10 [5]) on the right side of the sharpener
assembly to position “1” and hold. This will start the grinding stone rotating. Run untill the beveled cutting
surface on the back side of the blade cleans up. This can take approx. 15 to 30 seconds depending on
how dull the blade was allowed to become. Return sharpener wheel to center position.
7. Turn slicer ON. Rotate sharpener dial upward (Figure 10 [2]) to position “2” on the sharpener assembly
(this will engage the honing stone) and hold for approx.1 to 2 seconds. Turn OFF the slicer. Blade should
now be completely sharpened and honed.
Caution: It is important for best slicing results not to hone the knife too long or the keen edge will be
destroyed due to the formation of an undesirable second bevel on the opposite side. This
condition tends to be the primary cause of unsatisfactory slicing results.
8. Turn slicer OFF. Loosen sharpener mounting knob (Figure 10 [1]). Slide sharpener towards front of
machine and lift off the fence. Close fence fully.
9. Clean slicer and knife according to the cleaning procedure on Pages 6 - 7 in order to thoroughly remove
grinding debris.

Inspection of Seals
It is important to regularly inspect the seals of the slicer to ensure that your equipment is in compliance
with section 5.34.9.3 of the NSF/ Ansi 8 standards. Damaged or cracked seals can contain harmful bacteria
that can cause a number of illnesses. If the seals of your slicer are found to be compromised or missing, it is
necessary to remove the slicer from service and contact an authorized service agency or Univex.
Full thorough inspections should be conducted not exceeding 6 month periods and is recommended to
be performed by an authorized service agency. However as the regular operator of the machine seals
should be reviewed during normal daily cleaning and reported upon if found to be worn.
Refer to the below figure 14 for seal locations. Inspect seals for degradation, cracks, tears or missing parts.
