3.0 INTRODUCTION
DESCRIPTION
Model KLT-12G (12 gallon capacity) gas fired, self-contained, tilting kettle. The kettle has a
jacket of double-wall construction forming a sealed reservoir around the lower two-thirds of the
kettle. The reservoir is charged with distilled water. The kettle is equipped with a “clean lock” to
hold kettle in cooking position or tilted 105 degrees for ease of cleaning. The kettle is also
equipped with automatic ignition, low water cut off and tilt switch, which, when activated, shuts
down the burner.
BASIC FUNCTION
The kettle operates by generating steam in the kettle reservoir. The sequence of operation is as
follows:
1. Operator turns the power switch to the on position and sets the temperature control dial to
the desired setting.
2. The red light comes on indicating the kettle is heating. The green “IGNITION” light comes
on indicating that the ignition and burner are active.
3. Once the kettle reaches the set temperature, the red “TEMPERATURE” light and the green
“IGNITION” light extinguish.
4. All kettles are supplied with sufficient water in the jacket. If for any reason the water level
falls below the required amount to operate the kettle, the burner shuts down and the amber
light comes on. See Adding Water in Service section.
5. The sight glass indicates the water level within the kettle jacket.
6. The relief valve is a safety feature which prevents the internal kettle pressure from
exceeding 50 PSI. It should never be tampered with.

GAS CONNECTION
WARNING: Do not connect the appliance to the electrical supply
until after the gas connection has been made.
CAUTION: The pipe thread compound used when installing pipes
must be a type that is resistant to the action of liquified petroleum or
propane gases.
1.
The Serial and Rating Plate on the unit indicates the type of gas your unit is equipped to
burn. DO NOT connect to any other gas type.
2.
A 3/4" NPT line is provided at rear for the connection. The unit is equipped with an internal
pressure regulator which is set at 4" W.C. manifold pressure for Natural Gas and 10" W.C.
for Propane Gas. Use 1/8" pipe tap on the union elbow assembly located in the console for
checking pressure.
An adequate gas supply is imperative. Undersized or low pressure lines will restrict the volume
of gas required for satisfactory performance. A steady supply pressure, minimum 6 inch W.C.
for natural gas and minimum 12 inch W.C. for propane gas is recommended. With all units
operating simultaneously, the manifold pressure on all units should not show any appreciable
drop. Fluctuations of more than 25% on natural gas and 10% on propane gas will create
problems, affecting burner operation. Contact you gas company for correct supply line sizes.
Purge the supply line to clean out any dust, dirt or other foreign matter before connecting the
line to the unit. Use pipe joint compound which is suitable for use with L.P. on all threaded
connections.
Test pipe connections thoroughly for gas leaks.
WARNING: Never use an open flame to check for gas leaks. Check
all connections for leaks using soapy water before use.
NOTICE: If this equipment is being installed at over 2,000 feet altitude and was
not so specified on order, contact service department. Failure to install with
proper orifice sizing may void the warranty.

6.0 CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Disconnect the power supply to the appliance before
cleaning or servicing.
WARNING: Never spray water into electric controls or components!
CAUTION: The equipment and its parts are hot. Use care when
operating, cleaning and servicing.
CAUTION: Do not use cleaning agents that are corrosive.
Your kettle should be cleaned immediately after each use or when cooking a different product.
Before cleaning, check that the kettle has cooled enough to touch it.
1.
Rinse the inside of the kettle thoroughly and drain to remove any food particles.
2.
Using a nylon brush, clean the kettle with a mild detergent ad water. Never use steel wool
or scouring powder as it will scratch stainless steel. Plain steel wool can leave small
pieces of steel which can rust.
3.
Rinse the inside of the kettle thoroughly with clean water. Drain the kettle by tilting, to allow
the detergent and water solution to drain.
4.
Wipe the exterior of the kettle with a clean, damp cloth.
11
WHAT TO DO IF SURFACE RUST APPEARS
Metal utensils should never be used as they will scratch the surface of the equipment and rust
may begin to form. To remove surface accumulation of rust from the inadvertent use of such
utensils, the following procedure may be used.
CAUTION: Improper use of this procedure may damage your
appliance!
1.
Use undiluted white vinegar with a non-abrasive scouring pad (plastic) or cloth on the
affected area to remove the rust stain. The appliance should not be heated and remain at
room temperature during the entire cleaning process.
2.
If the stain resists removal, additional exposure time with vinegar may be required, to a
maximum of one hour.
3.
Thoroughly wash all of the vinegar away with fresh clear water. Dry the surface completely
and allow one hour before using the appliance to cook.
Following daily and period maintenance procedures will prolong the life of your equipment.
Climatic conditions - salt air - may require more thorough and frequent cleaning or the life of the
equipment could be adversely affected.
STAINLESS STEEL
To remove normal dirt, grease or product residue from stainless steel, use ordinary soap and
water (with or without detergent) applied with a sponge or cloth. Dry thoroughly with a clean
cloth. Never use vinegar or any other corrosive cleaner.
To remove grease and food splatters or condensed vapours that have baked on the equipment,
apply cleanser to a damp cloth or sponge and rub cleanser on the metal in the direction of the
polishing lines. Rubbing cleanser as gently as possible in the direction of the polished lines will
not mar the finish of the stainless steel. NEVER RUB WITH A CIRCULATION MOTION.
Soil and burn deposits which do not respond to the above procedure can usually be removed by
rubbing the surface with SCOTCH-BRITE™ scouring pads or STAINLESS scouring pads. DO
NOT USE ORDINARY STEEL WOOL as any particles left on the surface will rust and further
spoil the appearance of the finish. NEVER USE A WIRE BRUSH, STEEL SCOURING PADS
(EXCEPT STAINLESS), SCRAPER, FILE OR OTHER STEEL TOOLS. Surfaces which are
marred collect dirt more rapidly and become more difficult to clean. Marring also increases the
possibility of corrosive attack. Refinishing may then be required.
12
WHAT TO DO IF SURFACE RUST APPEARS (Continued)
TO REMOVE HEAT TINT: Darkened areas sometimes appear on stainless steel surfaces
where the area has been subjected to excessive heat. These darkened areas are caused by
thickening of the protective surface of the stainless steel and is not harmful. Heat tint can
normally be removed by the foregoing, but tint which does not respond to this procedure calls
for a vigorous scouring in the direction of the polish lines using SCOTCH-BRITE™ scouring
pads or a STAINLESS scouring pad in combination with a powdered cleanser. Heat tint action
may be lessened by not applying or by reducing heat to equipment during slack periods.
All food contact surfaces must be thoroughly drained and flushed prior to cooking in the kettle.
CONTROL PANEL: The textured control panel should be cleaned with warm water and mild
soap. Never use an abrasive cloth or steel wool . Never use cleaning solvents with a
hydrocarbon base.
7.0 PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
SAFETY VALVE MAINTENANCE AND TESTING
CAUTION! Under normal operating conditions a “try lever test”
should be performed every two months. Under severe service
conditions, or if corrosion and/or deposits are noticed within the
valve body, testing must be performed more often. A “try lever test”
should also be performed at the end of any non-service period.
CAUTION! Hot, high pressure fluid may be discharged from body
drain and vent during “try lever” test. Care must be taken to avoid
any bodily contact.
CAUTION! High sound levels may be experienced during “try lever”
test. Wear proper safety equipment and exercise extreme care! Test
at, or near, half of the operating pressure by holding the test lever
fully open for at least two seconds to flush the valve seat free of
sediment and debris. Then release lever and permit the valve to
snap shut.
If lift lever does not activate, or there is no evidence of discharge,
turn off equipment immediately and contact a licensed contractor or
qualified service personnel.
13
8.0 SERVICE
GENERAL
NOTICE: Contact the factory, the factory representative or local service
company to perform maintenance and repairs.
In order to avoid problems, check that the unit has been connected to the gas supply type and
voltage for which it was supplied. This can be done by examining the rating plate that lists the
gas type and voltage for which the unit was manufactured.
PRESSURE SWITCH
The pressure switch is preset for proper operation from the factory and should not be adjusted
until it is determined to be the cause of an operating pressure deficiency.
Appliance malfunctions caused by pressure switch misadjustment are:
1.
Pressure relief valve opening, especially on preheat from a cold start to 285 ΕF (pressure
switch set too high.)
2.
Burners being shut down prematurely by the pressure switch (pressure switch set is too
low).
If adjustment of pressure switch is required, call a qualified service technician to service the unit.
14
SERVICE TECHNICIAN:
1.
Bypass the thermostat by removing the wire on terminal 8 and install on piggy back on
terminal 10. Ignition and temperature light will come on.
2.
Turn on unit and allow it to reach approximately 35 psi. Rotate knob on pressure switch
clockwise to increase, counterclockwise to decrease. Use centre of black ring as an
indicator until burner shuts off at 35 psi as shown on pressure gauge on front of unit.
3.
To check that the pressure switch operates, cool the kettle down by filling with cold water.
Once cooled, turn kettle back on. Burner should shut down at 35 psi.
4.
Turn off power and cool unit down so that pressure on gauge is below 30 psi.
5.
When pressure is below 30 psi, reconnect the thermostat into circuit and set thermostat dial
to maximum setting.
6.
Turn on power and allow pressure to reach 30 psi on the pressure gauge.
7.
Thermostat must shut off at 30 psi. Should it fail to do this, adjustment will be required.
8.
To set thermostat, adjust the trim-pot on the control inside the kettle. It is located next to
terminal 2 and is not sealed. Turning pot clockwise will lower the temperature setting,
counterclockwise increases temperature.
9.
To check that the thermostat operates correctly, cool the unit as before and turn thermostat
dial to maximum setting. Burner should ignite and cycle between 22 and 30 psi.
10. If vacuum has been lost, heat unit until 30 psi, and open vent nut to release pressure in
order to create vacuum. When ignition and temperature lights come on, between 22 to 24
psi, close vent nut and allow to build pressure.
11. Unit is now ready for operation.
15
ADDING WATER
When the “Low Water” light is on, additional water is required and the following steps must be
followed:
1.
Unit should be completely cold and off.
2.
Lift handle of pressure relief valve to release the remaining vacuum in the kettle (relief
valve is at left rear of kettle).
3.
Remove air vent nut on the elbow located at the rear right of the unit.
4.
Using pure distilled water only, pour the water into the opening (a funnel will be helpful).
Water will enter the kettle slowly, as air must escape through the same hole. Water should
be added until the water level is past the centre of the sight glass. The sight glass is
located on the lower front left of the kettle.
5.
When sufficient water has been added, replace and tighten the nut. Be sure to seal
threads with pipe joint compound suitable for steam at 50 psi.
6.
Vacuum must be re-established. See Re-establishing Vacuum).
RE-ESTABLISHING VACUUM
Periodically check pressure gauge when kettle is cold. It should be in green vacuum zone
(below 0 psi). Otherwise air is present and proper heating will not occur.
To remove air:
1.
With the kettle empty, turn the thermostat knob to the highest temperature.
2.
When the temperature pilot light goes off, open air vent nut one (1) full turn for 20 seconds
and then close and tighten the nut. This should remove the air and any loss in
performance should return.
3.
Proper vacuum in the kettle should now be re-established.
