INTRODUCTION
1.1 Overview of Equipment
The Meiko Model FV 130.2 is a commercial
pot and pan washer/dishwasher. It is designed
for cleaning pots, pans, trays, kitchen utensils,
cutlery, dishes and glassware with a minimum
of employee intervention or supervision.
A control keypad allows easy selection of
three different washing cycles to accommodate different types of ware and levels of
soiling. A digital display permits easy
monitoring of operation.
Other features of the unit that affect operation
include:
Auto Safe - An internal booster heater is
controlled by the electronic control system to
ensure proper wash and rinse temperatures,
regardless of the incoming water supply.
Soft Start - The wash water is pumped at a
reduced pressure for the first few seconds of
the wash cycle. This protects the ware from
being moved or damaged by a sudden burst
of pressure.
Pumped Rinse - An internal rinse pump
ensures that the final rinse pressure is
constant.
Pumped Drain - Accommodates wall or floor
drains.
Aqua Stop - The unit will automatically shut
down if a water leak is detected.
For efficient and SAFE operation, be sure to
follow the installation and operating
instructions provided in this manual. In
particular, all safety symbols and notices on

INSTALLATION
3.1 Overview of Installation
The owner should contract with qualified
personnel to move the appliance to the
installation location, unpack it, and prepare it
for final utility connections. In most cases,
local codes prevent the final utility connections
from being made by any party other than a
licensed electrician and/or plumber.
IMPORTANT
It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all aspects of the installation comply with
all applicable local and national codes.
IMPORTANT
The appliance’s warranty is not valid until a
Meiko Authorized Service Agent performs a
Startup and Demonstration on the appliance.
This Demonstration should be scheduled after
installation.
Installation of the machine involves the
following steps:
• Verifying that the utility connections are
present, are appropriate for the appliance,
and comply with all applicable local and
national codes.
• Unwrapping the appliance (leaving the
shipping skid in place for easier movement) and checking for shipping damage.
• Moving the appliance to the installation
location, removing the skid, and leveling
the feet.
• Connecting the electrical supply.
• Installing the chemical dispensing system.
For units equipped with the optional
dispensing system, this involves
connecting the machine’s detergent and
rinse additive tubes to appropriate dispensers.
For units without the optional system, the
dispensing system installer should follow
the manufacturer’s instructions AND the
instructions in Section 3 of this Manual.
• Connecting the fresh water supply.
• Positioning the drain hose.
Page 4
•
Contacting your Meiko Authorized Service
Agent to perform a Startup and
Demonstration on the appliance. This step
also validates the appliance’s warranty.
3.2 Requirements Before Installation
Before the installer can uncrate and move the
appliance to the installation location, the
following conditions MUST be met:
• INSTALLATION AREA REQUIREMENTS
- The area MUST be frost-free. Freezing
temperatures (32°F/0°C or lower)

damage internal components.
- The area MUST have a firm floor
surface. It is possible to compensate for
uneven flooring by adjusting the feet.
- The area should be away from
appliances, furniture or surfaces that
can be damaged by steam. If this is
not possible, these items should be
protected from the small quantities of
steam that are released during normal
operation of the machine.
• UTILTITY CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS
- Connections must be present and
ready for hookup to the appliance. All
utility supplies must comply with the
electrical information labels, with the
information on the serial plate, and with
all applicable local and national codes.
- Electrical leads and the water supply
hose (supplied by the customer) must
be present.
- For units without the optional
dispensing system, external detergent
and rinse additive pumps (if used)
should be installed according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
- For units with the optional dispensing
system, appropriate dispensers or
containers should be installed and
ready for connection to the appliance.
• GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
Authorized personnel should be available
to perform the actual utility connections.

SECTION 3 - INSTALLATION
3.6 Dispensing system overview
The FV 130.2 is designed for use
with a liquid rinse aid, and either
solid or liquid detergents.
Units equipped with optional liquid
internal detergent and rinse aid
pumps have two tubes exiting the
machine at the lower rear. These
tubes can simply be attached to
detergent and rinse aid containers.
See Figure 3-6.
Units that are NOT equipped with
the internal pumps have:
• A blue rinse aid line exiting the
machine at the lower rear.
• Two dummy plugs covering
holes in the back of the wash
tank that can be used for detergent injection. The plugs are
accessed by removable panels
on the sides of the machine.
Either plug can be used.
• A hole in the bottom of the wash
tank for the installation of a detergent concentration probe.
A dispensing system terminal block
(shown in Figure 3-6) provides
contacts for two line voltage
relays. These relays, when closed,
provide a “window” for external
pump systems to activate.
• The rinse aid pump relay closes
for approximately 16.5 seconds
whenever the booster tank
refills (once per cycle).
• The detergent pump relay
closes whenever the wash
pump is in operation.
Activation of the pumps can be
controlled as follows:
• Solid detergent systems should
use a detergent concentration
probe installed in the wash tank
to activate the external pump.
A dummy plug at the bottom of
the wash tank provides an
installation location for the probe.

3.8 Installing an External Liquid Rinse
Aid System
A pre-plumbed, blue 1/4” ID tube at the
lower rear of the unit serves as the
connection point for the rinse aid supply.
See Figure 3-9.
If a liquid rinse aid system will NOT be
used, cut the tubing near the rear panel.
Then, close and seal it with the plug and
wire clamp that are supplied on the end
of the tube. See Figure 3-7.
To install a liquid rinse aid dispensing
system:
1. Route the rinse aid supply line to the
blue 1/4” ID tube at the lower rear of
the machine.
2. Fasten the line in place and seal the
connection.
3. Check that the pump is correctly
installed
according
to
the
manufacturer’s instructions.
3.9 Wiring External Chemical Dispensing Systems
IMPORTANT
Some local codes dictate that electrical
connections be made only by a certified
professional.
1. Locate the chemical dispenser
terminal block. See Figure 3-4.
2. Thread the incoming leads from the
chemical pumps through the extra
strain reliefs (at the lower rear of
machine) and to the chemical
dispenser terminal block.
3. Connect the wires as shown in Figure
3-10. Note that the terminal block
supplies LINE VOLTAGE SIGNALS.
An additional transformer may be
required depending on the supply
requirements of the external pumps.
4. Adjust the strain reliefs to fasten the
wiring in place. Leave enough slack in
the wiring to prevent stress on the
terminal connections. Bundle the wires
together using wire ties to prevent
them from tangling when repositioning
the appliance.

SECTION 3 - INSTALLATION
3.10 Connecting Chemical Containers or
Dispensers (if so equipped)
This section applies to units with either
internal or external chemical dispensing
pumps.
1. Check that the rinse additive and
detergent are compatible with the unit. In
particular, a commercial (not a domestic)
detergent MUST be used.
2 Check that the containers/dispensers are
correctly installed according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
3. If the dishwasher is equipped with factory
internal chemical dispensing pumps, two
strainer assemblies for the chemical
containers are also included. See Figure
3-11. These strainers should be
assembled onto the lids for the detergent
and rinse additive containers.
4. For liquid detergent systems, locate the
CLEAR liquid detergent tube. Connect the
tubing to the detergent container.
For solid detergent systems, connect the
detergent supply line according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
5. Locate the BLUE liquid rinse additive tube
at the lower rear of the unit. Connect the
tubing to the rinse additive container.
6. If using the strainers shown in Figure
3-11, be sure to use the supplied wire
clamps to fasten the chemical supply
tubes securely. Meiko STRONGLY
RECOMMENDS the use of a sealing
compound on these connections to
prevent leakage.

SECTION 3 - INSTALLATION
3.11 Fresh Water Supply Connection
CAUTION
Before connecting the water supply hose, the
line MUST be flushed clean of all debris,
including (but not limited to) pipe sealant,
metal particles, solder, etc. This debris can
damage the appliance.
IMPORTANT
In some cases, local codes dictate that water
supply connections be made only by a
certified professional.
1. Check that iron or other metal particles
cannot contaminate the fresh water
supplied to the dishwasher.
2. Check that the incoming water pressure
is within the acceptable range for the
appliance (8.7-72.5 psi, 0.6-5.0 bars). It
may be necessary to increase the pressure (with a booster pump) or to reduce
the pressure (with a reducing valve).
3. Check the incoming water temperature.
Meiko recommends a water temperature
of 140°F/60°C for optimum operation,
although if necessary the appliance will
operate correctly using water at any
temperature of 140°F/60°C or lower.
Colder water will result in a longer preheat
time (during initial startup) and may extend
the cycle time to allow the final rinse water
to heat to 180°F/82°C.
4. Check the incoming water hardness.
Meiko recommends a hardness of 4 grains
per U.S. gallon (7 DH German hardness).
Figure 3-12: Fresh water supply and
drain connections
5. Because the water inlet incorporates a
stainless steel dirt trap, an additional trap
is unnecessary unless required by local,
national or international codes.
6. The dishwasher includes a water supply
line that ends in an enclosure containing
the water inlet valve and the Aqua-Stop
shutoff valve (see Figure 3-12). Connect
the customer-supplied water line to the
fitting on the end of this enclosure. Use a
sealing compound on the threads to ensure
that no leaks are present in the connection.
7. Check that the water line is long enough
to permit the unit to be repositioned for
servicing.
3.12 Drain Hose Positioning
1. Check that the end of the drain hose will
empty into a drain with a minimum
diameter of 1-1/2”/38mm.
2. Check the type of drain that will be used.
Because the FV 130.2 uses a pumped drain,
either a floor or wall drain is acceptable.
CAUTION
No portion of a wall drain system may be
higher than 24” (610m) A.F.F. to ensure
that the drain pump is operating within
rated specifications. See Figure 3-13.
3. Route the drain hose to the drain. In some
cases, a grease trap (supplied by others)
must be fitted into the waste water line. If
this trap is required for your installation,
check that it is present.

the
3.15 Checking for Correct Chemical
Concentration
Machines equipped with external chemical
dispensing systems will have normal settings
recommended by the manufacturer.
For machines equipped with factory internal
chemical dispensing systems, the normal
settings for chemical injection are:
• Detergent - 0.256 oz. per gallon of wash
water (2.0 ml per liter).
• Rinse additive - 0.0256 oz. per gallon of
rinse water (0.2 ml per liter).
To check if the normal settings are correct for
your chemicals, RUN THREE EMPTY
LOADS to completely cycle the water supply
and obtain accurate test results. This will only
take a few minutes. Then, run a sample load
with soiled ware and examine the results.
• If the detergent setting is too low, the ware
will not be adequately cleaned. In some
cases, this can be corrected by simply
selecting a longer cycle time (using the
Cycle Select II, Medium or Cycle Select
III, Heavy buttons), but the detergent
concentration may also need to be adjusted.
• If the rinse additive setting is too low,
spotting or streaking may occur on the
ware.
• If too much of either chemical is added,
the extra chemicals will be wasted. This
is often difficult to detect except by
determining how long your chemical
supplies last. If the chemicals are being
exhausted quickly, you may need to have
the chemical concentration adjusted.
IN ALL CASES, ANY ADJUSTMENTS OF
THE FACTORY CHEMICAL INJECTION
SETTINGS ARE TO BE PERFORMED
ONLY BY A MEIKO AUTHORIZED
SERVICE AGENT. CHANGES BY
UNAUTHORIZED PERSONNEL WILL
VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
If you need to contact your Authorized
Service Agency, please contact Meiko
Technical Support at 1-800-868-3840.

4.3 Loading
Check the level of the external detergent and
rinse additive dispensers. If necessary,
replace or refill the dispensers.
The loading guidelines shown here will lead
to faster, more efficient cleaning of your ware.
Press any of the three POWER/CYCLE
SELECT keys to turn on the machine.
Normal cycle for plates, glassware and
typically soiled pots, pans and utensils
Extended cycle for items with
greater soiling
Heavy cycle for very heavily soiled
items
The light above the selected
POWER/CYCLE SELECT key will
begin to flash, showing that the tank
is filling and the water is heating to
the correct temperature.
The time required for filling and preheating
will vary based on the temperature of the
incoming water supply. For incoming water
at 140°F/60°C, the machine may need up to
30 minutes to fill and heat to the correct wash
temperature. The default wash temperature
is several degrees above 150°F/66°C for
efficient operation.
Load sheet pans, trays, etc. at an angle with
the inside face pointing up. Use the triangular
sheet pan support insert for these items for
faster loading, and to ensure that the ware is
positioned and spaced properly for effective
washing.

When the tank is full and the water
has been heated to the correct
temperature, the light above the
selected POWER/CYCLE SELECT
key will stop flashing. The machine
is now ready for operation.
Load pots, bowls or deep pans with the open
side facing down.

SECTION 4 - OPERATION
Plates, soup bowls, and glassware can be
loaded into the machine using standard
20x20” racks. The FV 130.2 wire basket holds
one rack per cycle, with room for additional
pots, pans and utensils.
Glasses loaded

When loading 20x20” racks, load plates, soup
bowls, etc. at an angle with the inside face
pointing up. Ensure that water cannot pool in
the bottom of bowls. Loading bowls face-up
reduces the possibility of movement during
the wash cycle.
For greater efficiency in loading cutlery, you
can use cutlery holders. When loading them:
•
•
•
Position bowls
to allow water
to drain
Plates and bowls loaded
at an angle with the
open side facing UP
Glasses should be loaded with the open side
facing down, using EITHER a rack with a holddown grid, OR a tall, compartmentalized rack
intended for glassware, to prevent movement
during the wash cycle.
Do not overload the holders.
Always load knives, forks and
spoons with the handle
DOWN.
Do not load identical ware
into any given holder.
Instead, load an assortment
of knives, forks and spoons
into each holder. Identical
ware is often too closely
spaced for effective cleaning.
Do not stack items in the machine. Stacked
items require longer or multiple cleaning
cycles because the wash water cannot reach
the food residue as effectively.
After loading, roll the basket completely into
the machine. Then, lift the lower door section
to close the split doors.

SECTION 4 - OPERATION
4.4 Operation
Press either of the CYCLE/
DRAIN keys to begin the selected
cycle. The key will not work unless
the light above the selected
POWER/CYCLE SELECT key
has stopped flashing.
The machine will begin a wash and rinse
cycle. The Soft Start feature pumps the water
through the arms slowly for the first few
seconds of the cycle to protect fragile ware.
After a few seconds, full pressure will engage.
The time of the total cycle will be at least as
long as the times shown in Section 4.1. Note
that quickly loading several loads in
succession when using a cold water supply
may extend the cycle time.
OPTIONAL
If desired, the cycle can be stopped at any
time by pressing the POWER OFF (
)
button OR by opening the door.
WARNING!
If the door is opened suddenly, hot
water can spray out of the machine. To
prevent this from happening:
• Open the door slowly until the machine
stops operating, OR
• Press the
key to stop the wash/rinse
cycle before opening the door.
When the cycle has completed, the machine
will stop operating and sound a three-stage
beeping tone. After the tone has sounded, you
may open the doors, roll the basket forward
onto the lower door section, and unload the
ware. Note that steam escapes when the
doors are opened; this is normal.
WARNING!
Use caution when handling hot
dishware.
Page 16
4.5 Between Cycles
During idle periods, leave the doors of the
machine closed. If the doors are left open,
the wash tank water will cool. This will activate
the tank heaters, consuming extra energy,
and may lengthen the recovery time when
another cycle is started.
If necessary, you can choose a different cycle
length between cycles by pressing any of the
POWER/CYCLE SELECT keys.
When you are ready to start a new cycle, refer
to Section 4.3, “Loading.”
4.6 Shutdown
At the end of the shift, press the
POWER OFF key.
Press either of the CYCLE/
DRAIN keys to empty the tank.
After the water has drained, the machine will
enter a self-cleaning mode. The interior will
be sprayed with hot, fresh water as the
booster tank empties. When this is
completed, the drain will “pulse” several times
to empty the water and the machine will
automatically shut off.
WARNING!
DO NOT open the doors of the
machine during the self-cleaning process!
The process will be interrupted and hot water
may spray out of the machine.
After the machine has finished its selfcleaning cycle, open the doors. Remove any
food particles, scraps or bones from the scrap
screen. Meiko recommends that the doors of
the machine be left open overnight to allow it
to air thoroughly.
IMPORTANT
Because of the large quantity of food soiling
present on many pots and pans, it is
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that the
interior of the machine be cleaned daily
following the instructions in Section 5.1, “Daily
Cleaning.”
SECTION 5 - CLEANING

CLEANING
WARNING!
Before ANY cleaning, check that the
circuit breaker/fused disconnect is in
the OFF position and that the unit is
switched off.
IMPORTANT
The headings Daily Cleaning and Weekly
Cleaning in this section are general
recommendations based on typical soiling.
Because of the large quantity of food soiling
present on many pots and pans, it may be
necessary to clean the machine more often
and more extensively than a traditional
dishwasher. Extensive food soil deposits
inside the machine work against optimal
performance. Some items may not be
cleaned as effectively, resulting in the need
for either a longer cycle or repeat washing. In
addition, heavy soiling in the wash water
increases detergent consumption.
2. AFTER this cycle ends and the machine
shuts down, open the doors, and remove
the basket from the machine. Any food
soil clinging to corners, etc. of the basket
can be wiped off with a clean, damp cloth.
3. Remove the two lower left wash arms to
access the scrap screen and wash tank.
To remove the arm, first pull its front side
up and out of the black retainer bar. Then,
pull the back side free of the manifold.
4 Remove any large food particles, scraps
or bones from the scrap screen.
5. Lift out the scrap screen and clean it
thoroughly using a brush and warm water.
6. Flip up the two angled plates that surround
the Active Plus filter.
7. Lift out the Active Plus filter. Clean it
thoroughly using a brush and warm water.
Be sure to use care to avoid damaging
the screen on the Active Plus filter.
5.1 Daily Cleaning (or as required)
1. The machine automatically enters a selfcleaning cycle when it is turned off. The
interior will be sprayed with hot, fresh
water as the booster tank empties.

8. Check the inside of the wash tank for food
particles. Wipe any residue out of the tank
using a clean, damp cloth.
9. Meiko recommends that the door of the
machine be left open overnight to allow it
to air thoroughly.
10. Reassemble all components into the
machine before operation. Note that the
Active Plus filter MUST be re-installed with
the slotted end facing DOWN. See Figure
5-1.
IMPORTANT
Be sure to flip down the two angled plates
that surround the Active Plus filter before
replacing the scrap screen!
To replace the wash arms, first insert the
back end into the manifold. The back end
of the arm is keyed to ensure correct
replacement. Then, snap the front end
down into the black retainer bar. All lower
wash arms are identical.
5.2 Weekly Cleaning (or as required)
Once per week, or as required, perform the
following steps:
1. Open the doors. Follow the procedures in
Section 5.1, “Daily Cleaning.”

2. Remove and disassemble the wash and
rinse arms. The machine is equipped with:
• Four upper wash arms (identical)
• Four lower wash arms (identical)
• One removable upper rinse arm
• One removable lower rinse arms
• Two additional fixed lower rinse arms
(leave these in place)
Both removable rinse arms are identical.
The upper wash arms are slightly shorter
than the lower arms to prevent their reinstallation in the wrong location.
All of the lower wash arms are removed
in the same manner as described in
Section 5.1, “Daily Cleaning.” To remove
the upper wash arms, first pull the front
side of the arm down and out of the black
retainer bar, and then pull the back side
free of the manifold.
To remove the rinse arms, remove the retaining screw and pull the arm off the shaft.
3. Clean the wash and rinse arms with a
brush and warm running water. In
particular, check that any food soil inside
the wash arms is removed.
4. Reassemble all components into the
machine.
SECTION 5 - CLEANING
5.3 Exterior cleaning (as required)
5.4 Deliming (as required)
CAUTION
When cleaning the exterior of the machine,
be sure to follow these guidelines:
• Meiko strongly recommends using detergent when cleaning the exterior of the unit,
instead of commercial stainless steel
cleaners. These cleaners can damage the
surface of the control panel.
• Never use abrasive cleaners or pads when
cleaning the exterior of the machine.
These can scratch the surface of the unit.
WARNING!
Ensure that detergents and stainless
steel cleaners are kept out of the interior of the machine. If the interior of
the unit requires cleaning, refer to the
deliming procedures (Section 5.4).
Lime scale deposits will occur over time on
the interior of the machine if it is operated
using a hard water supply. Meiko recommends
a hardness of 4 grains per U.S. gallon (7 DH
German hardness).
A deliming or de-scaling process can be used
to remove these deposits, as well as any
accumulated food residue.
CAUTION
When deliming the interior, be sure to follow
these guidelines:
• Use deliming agents designed for use with
commercial dishwashers.
• Follow the instructions for the deliming
agent that is used.
After the deliming process:
1. Run the machine through 2-3 regular
cycles without a load to rinse and sanitize
the interior thoroughly.
2. Inspect the interior for any remaining
deliming agent residue. If residue is
present, remove it using a soft cloth and
hot water; then, run the machine through
one final empty cycle.
3. Press the POWER OFF
button; then,
press the CYCLE/DRAIN
button. This
will empty the tank, ensuring that any
deliming agent still in the tank will be
flushed out of the machine.
WARNING!
Ensure that ALL residue of the
deliming agent is removed. Residue
from the agent can:
- Pose a health hazard;
- Damage seals and plastic
components inside the machine.
