TO AVOID SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY:
•
BEFORE CLEANING, SHARPENING, SERVICING, OR REMOVING ANY PARTS, always turn slicer off,
turn the slice thickness dial clockwise until it stops, remove food chute, and unplug power cord.
•
NEVER attempt to clean slicer with the knife running.
•

proper operation, sharpening, and cleaning.
The entire slicer, including removable parts, must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized using the
procedures identified by your local health department and the ServSafe Essentials published by
the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). Visit www.servsafe.com
for more details.
It is extremely important to sanitize the slicer and to follow the instructions on your quaternary
sanitizer container to ensure proper sanitation is achieved.
• DO NOT put components in dishwasher.
• DO NOT hose down or pressure wash any slicer part.
• DO NOT use bleach or other caustic/strong detergents on the slicer
base or components.
Slicer components are easily disassembled without the use of special tools.
It may be desirable to wear non-cutting safety gloves during the cleaning operation.
DISASSEMBLY & CLEANING
1. Turn the slicer off, turn the slice thickness dial clockwise until it stops so the table
covers the knife’s edge, and unplug the power cord.

2. Remove the food chute by rotating the food chute release knob (figure 9-1)
ONLY two turns counterclockwise. Lift the food chute straight up off the
support arm (Fig. 9-2).
•
DO NOT turn the food chute release knob more than two turns.
Complete removal of the knob will cause the slicer to not operate properly.
3. The slice deflector can be removed by unscrewing the screw knobs.

Take the food chute, knife cover, and receiving tray back to a three compartment sink. Soak,
clean, and scrub the food chute, knife cover, and receiving tray using a mild detergent and
warm water solution. Following the instructions on your quaternary sanitizer, soak the
food chute, knife cover, and receiving tray in a proper solution of quaternary sanitizer.
Allow the parts to air dry before reassembling!
Figure 10-1
ALWAYS turn slicer off and unplug power cord BEFORE cleaning.
7.
To clean the knife, soak a clean cloth in a mild detergent and warm water
solution. Ring out excess water from cloth. Carefully wash and rinse the top
and bottom (underside) of the knife by wiping from the center of the knife
outward (Fig. 10-2).

9.
To clean the knife ring guard, soak a clean cloth in a mild detergent and warm
water solution. Carefully insert the cloth between the knife and the knife ring
guard (Fig. 10-3). While holding the cloth between the knife and the knife ring
guard, work it along the entire backside of the knife. A nylon brush could also
be used if preferred.
Figure 10-2
To clean the slicer table, soak a clean cloth in a mild detergent and warm water
solution. With the slicer table completely closed, wipe the slicer table off by starting
at the knife and pulling towards you. Never wipe the slicer table towards the knife.

Knife Sharpening
SHARP KNIFE BLADE
TO AVOID SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY:
•
NEVER touch rotating knife.
•
ALWAYS keep hands clear of all moving parts.
•
ALWAYS turn slicer off and turn slice thickness dial clockwise until it stops, and remove food chute before
sharpening.
•
NEVER sharpen slicer unless all guards are installed.
WHEN AND HOW OFTEN TO SHARPEN THE KNIFE
1. Symptoms of a dull knife are excess waste/or a “tail” on the unsliced portion remaining in the food chute.
2. The knife needs to be sharpened periodically to provide consistent slices and maximum food product yield.
Sharpening the knife lightly every few days is more effective than heavy sharpening at less frequent intervals.
PREPARING TO SHARPEN
1. Turn the slicer off and turn the slice thickness dial clockwise until it stops so the
slicer table covers the knife’s edge.
2. Remove food chute from the slicer.
3. Clean and dry both sides of the knife before sharpening, following instructions for
knife cleaning on pages 9 and 10.
NOTE: The knife cover must be on during sharpening. The slicer will not start
if the knife cover is removed.
Figure 11-1
4. Loosen the sharpener release knob located at the side of the sharpener (Fig. 11-1).
The sharpener will spring to the up position.
BE ALERT. The next step will expose the knife.
5. Push the sharpener forward (towards the knife) until the knife is centered
between the two stones (Fig. 11-2).
