PARTS IDENTIFICATION
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
INTRODUCTION
This manual contains instructions for the Installation, Operation, and Care of the Meat Slicing Machine. A
trouble shooting guide is provided. A complete Replacement Parts List with identifying figures is also
included to facilitate identification and ordering of replacement parts.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
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. Detached parts
and fixtures should be checked against packing list to determine all are present. Any damages,
imperfections or shortages should be reported to the dealer 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 Page 8.
INSTALLATION
The most efficient installation of your Univex 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.
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 (Figure 1 [9]) 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 120 volt, 60Hz units. 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 instruction on Page 8 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 work the
carriage using only the carriage arm handle (Figure 1 [9]). Do not hold or push the carriage from any other
place.
OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
The Univex slicer is designed to meet the cook's demand for an efficient, sturdy slicer. The Univex slicer
will give unfailing performance over a period of years, when operated and maintained according to
instructions contained herein.
START/STOP SWITCH
The slicer is started by pulling the ON/OFF push/pull switch (Figure 1 [2]).
SLICE ADJUSTMENT
Warning: Dial type knob adjustment (Figure 1 [14]) allows for slice thickness ranging from paper
thin up to 13/16". Dial graduations allow you to precisely set up specific slice thickness
for various needs. When not in use, always return knob back to its fully closed position
(beyond "0") so that the knife edge is not exposed.
PRODUCT CARRIAGE
Caution: A last slice gravity feed grip (Figure 1 [8]) is provided to hold the product in place as it is
being sliced. Do not use this last slice device to work the carriage back and forth. Use only
the carriage arm handle (Figure 1 [9]). Always make sure the carriage is positively secured
to the slicer by checking to see that the carriage arm knob (Figure 1, [11]) is fully tightened.
PROTECTIVE GUARD
Warning: The protective guard (Figure 1 [13]) 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 (Figure 1
[5]) can be removed for cleaning by unscrewing the knife guard knob. For safety, keep the
knife guard on at all times except when cleaning. Never operate the slicer with the knife
guard removed.
AUTOMATIC MODE
Warning: Never switch the slicer from Manual to Automatic while the unit is running. This can cause
damage to the gearbox and Automatic drive train.
Pull carriage to its full stop position towards the thickness control knob (Figure 1 [14]). Switch
Automatic Lever (Figure 1, [12]) counterclockwise to engage the Automatic drive. Set product in
carriage, select desired thickness and turn slicer on. Once the desired quantity is reached, turn
slicer off and return Automatic Lever to Manual position. This will ensure that the unit is not
accidentally started in Automatic mode.
SHARPENING INSTRUCTIONS
This slicer is equipped with a knife having a concave or hollowed surface for superior slicing, of course,
any knife, however superior, must be sharpened regularly and properly in order to produce the highest
quality slices, but also to allow it to maintain its productivity. The knife sharpener for this machine is a top
mounted design. Since the sharpener is not exposed during the slicing operation, the stones remain free
of food contamination and in the best possible condition for sharpening.
Warning: The following sharpening procedure will provide high quality sharpening
and should be followed for safety considerations:

Results
The blade should be cleaned and free from all grease and food remnants. Food particles and oils
will clog and impair the stones.
Turn the slicer OFF.
Adjust the Thickness control dial (Figure 1, [14]) to beyond the “0”. This will ensure that the blade
edge is not exposed to the operator.
Move the carriage all the way to the start position (closest to Thickness Control Dial).
Loosen the sharpener assembly lock
knob (Figure 2 [1]).
o
Lift the sharpener and rotate 180 (Figure 2 [2]). Stones will align with the blade. The sharpening
stone will contact the blade.
Tighten the sharpener assembly lock knob to secure sharpener into position.
Turn the slicer ON. It is normal to see sparks from the underside of the blade as it is being
sharpened.
Run this for 1-2 minutes.
After 1-2 minutes, depress the button for the honing (Figure 2 [4]) for 3 seconds and release.
Turn the slicer OFF.
Remove the sharpener from the blade, reversing the installation procedure.
Clean the sharpener and blade thoroughly after sharpening to remove blade and stone dust.
