Installation, Operation, and Care of
MODEL AM14 & AM14C DISHWASHERS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GENERAL
The AM14 dishwashers are semi-automatic rack-type machines. On model AM14, the doors open on
opposite sides of the machine allowing the rack to move straight through. Model AM14C can be located
in a corner; adjacent doors open so the rack moves in and out at a 90° angle. The AM14 and AM14C
dishwashers are designed to operate in one of two modes: Hot water sanitizing mode (designated by
the letter "H" at the end of the machine serial number), or a chemical sanitizing mode (designated by
the letter "L" at the end of the machine serial number). The serial number can be found on the machine
data plate.

DO NOT attempt to operate this dishwasher in the chemical sanitizing mode without a properly
installed, NSF-listed, chemical sanitizer feeder (not supplied with machine). Contact an authorized
detergent representative for information about a chemical sanitizer feeder.
The pump motor is rated 1 H.P. and has thermal overload protection.
The fill line incorporates an atmospheric vacuum breaker to prevent any reverse flow of water from the
dishwasher into the potable water supply.
A float, located in the wash tank, will shut off the heat supply if the water level becomes too low. When
the water returns to a proper level, the heating circuit is again operational.
–4–
Available as an optional accessory is a frame-mounted 10KW electric booster to maintain a minimum
final rinse temperature of 180°F.
Also available as an optional accessory is the model IB57 Infrared Booster Gas Water Heater.
Also available are circuit breaker(s) and/or single point electrical connection options.
INSTALLATION
UNPACKING
Immediately after unpacking the dishwasher, check for possible shipping damage. If this machine is
found to be damaged, save the packaging material and contact the carrier within 15 days of delivery.
Prior to installation, test the electrical service to make sure it agrees with the specifications on the
machine data plate (and booster data plate if applicable). The dishwasher data plate is located either
on the front of the upper wash tank, viewable after the front panel is removed, or on the side of the
control box. A separate data plate for the electric booster is located on the back side of the booster
(when equipped).
INSTALLATION CODES
Installation must be in accordance with state and local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 (latest edition) if applicable, and the National Electrical Code
ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest edition). In Canada, the installation standards are: CAN/CGA B149.1,
CAN/CGA B149.2, and CSA C22.2 No.1 (latest editions).
LOCATION
Place the dishwasher in its operating location. Before finalizing the location, make sure that
consideration has been given for the electrical conduit, water supply, drain connection, steam or gas
supply and venting (if applicable), tabling (if needed), chemical feeder replenishment (if applicable),
and adequate clearance for opening the doors. Allow adequate clearance for service.
The control box (Fig. 1) is mounted 4 5/8" below the dish
table when shipped from the factory. It can be changed
to 125/8" or 31/8" below the dish table by removing the
two mounting bolts and reinstalling them in the holes
provided.
The dishwasher must be level before any connections
are made. Turn the threaded feet (Fig. 1) as required
to level the machine and adjust to the desired height.
Dish tables should be turned down and fitted into the
dishwasher (Fig. 2). Use an NSF approved sealer
between table and tank lip to prevent leakage. Fasten
the tables to the tank lip with truss head screws.
Fig. 2
High-temperature or gas heat dishwashers will probably require a hood or vent over the dishwasher
in order to meet local codes. Low-temperature chemical sanitizing machines or low usage electric or
steam heat dishwashers may not require individual venting of the machine if the room is amply
exhausted. Refer to pages 8 and 9 for venting and hood requirements.

WATER REQUIREMENTS
Proper water quality can improve ware washing performance by reducing spotting, lowering chemical
supply costs, enhancing effectiveness of labor, and extending equipment life. Local water conditions
vary from one location to another. The recommended proper water treatment for effective and efficient
use of this equipment will also vary depending on the local water conditions. Ask your municipal water
supplier for details about local water specifics prior to installation.
Recommended water hardness is 4 – 6 grains of hardness per gallon. Chlorides must not exceed 50
parts per million. Water hardness above 6 grains per gallon should be treated by a water conditioner
(water softener or in-line treatment). Water hardness below 4 grains per gallon also requires a water
treatment to reduce potential corrosion. Water treatment has been shown to reduce costs associated
with machine cleaning, reduce deliming of the dishwasher, reduce detergent usage, and reduce
corrosion of metallic surfaces in the booster water heater and dishwasher.
Sediment, silica, chlorides, or other dissolved solids may lead to a recommendation for particulate
filtration or reverse osmosis treatment.
If an inspection of the dishwasher or booster heater reveals lime build-up after the equipment has been
in service, in-line water treatment should be considered, and, if recommended, should be installed and
used as directed. Contact your Hobart Service office for specific recommendations.
PLUMBING CONNECTIONS
WARNING: PLUMBING CONNECTIONS MUST COMPLY WITH APPLICABLE SANITARY, SAFETY,
AND PLUMBING CODES.
DRAIN CONNECTION
The drain connection is made using 2" pipe.
If a right hand drain is desired, it can be changed from the standard left-hand by removing the pipe plug
from the drain valve and reinstalling it in the opposite end of the drain valve.
If a grease trap is required by code, it should have a minimum flow capacity of 42 gallons per minute.
WATER CONNECTION
A suitable water hammer arrestor should be installed in the water line just ahead of the dishwasher.
Without Electric or Gas Booster Water Heater
The water supply line is connected to the line strainer (Fig. 1) with 3/4" pipe.
Minimum water temperatures are listed below:

* Temperatures shown are minimum; recommended temperature is 140°F (60°C).
Proper dishwasher operation requires a flowing pressure of 20 ± 5 psig at the dishwasher. If the
flowing pressure exceeds 25 psig, a pressure reducing valve (not supplied) must be installed in the
water supply line. CAUTION: The water pressure regulator must have a relief by-pass. Failure
to use the proper type of pressure regulator may result in damage to the unit.
A pressure gauge (Fig. 1) is provided for verification of proper water pressure. Present models
monitor the water pressure when the solenoid valve is open and water is flowing. On earlier models
where the pressure gauge was connected into a petcock, the petcock MUST always remain closed
except when making an instantaneous check of flowing pressure.
–6–
With Electric Booster Water Heater
The water supply line is connected to the booster (Fig. 6) with 3/4" pipe.
The water supply should have a minimum temperature of 120°F – 140°F, and a flowing pressure of 15 –
25 psig at the pressure gauge tee beside the solenoid valve. If the flowing pressure exceeds 25 psig,
a pressure reducing valve (not supplied) must be installed in the water supply line. CAUTION: The
water pressure regulator must have a relief by-pass. Failure to use the proper type of pressure
regulator may result in damage to the unit.
Incoming water temperature below 120°F may require the wash cycle time to be extended from 40 to
60 seconds. To have the cycle time adjusted, contact your local authorized Hobart Service Office.
Pressure / temperature relief valve piping must be extended to an open drain receiver in the floor. Refer
to the tag attached to the pressure / temperature relief valve drain piping for additional installation
instructions.

The dishwasher must be installed so that the flow of combustion and ventilation air will not be
obstructed. Adequate clearances for air openings into the combustion chamber must be provided.
Make sure there is an adequate supply of make-up air in the room to allow for combustion of the gas
at the burner(s).
Keep the appliance area free and clear from all combustible substances. Do not obstruct the flow of
combustion and ventilation air. The dishwasher must have a minimum clearance from combustible
construction of 1 inch from the flue at the rear and 0 inches at the sides. A clearance of 40 inches must
be provided at the front of the dishwasher for servicing and proper operation.
The burner is ignited automatically by solid state electronic circuitry; there is no pilot light. Gas flow
is regulated by the temperature control circuit.
VENTING REQUIREMENTS — WITH GAS TANK HEAT
The Hobart AM14 / AM14C dishwasher equipped for gas tank heat is not provided with a flue collar and
is not intended to have the flue directly connected to a ventilation system. However, the products of
combustion must be vented to the outside air. The most common method of venting is a vent hood over
the entire dishwasher (Fig. 4). Refer to Rate of Exhaust Flow Calculations on the next page for
calculations of the proper vent rate for your hood. Another method is a small vent hood (Fig. 5)
positioned about five inches above the flue exit at the rear of the dishwasher and connected to existing
ductwork. In either case, an electrical interlock must be provided to allow the flow of gas to the
dishwasher burner ONLY when the exhaust system is energized. For additional information, refer to
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, NFPA 54.
• IMPORTANT: Make sure the installation meets the local code for your area.

DISHWASHING
Scrape the dishes to remove large particles of food and debris. Never use steel wool on ware to be
loaded into the dishmachine.
Fig. 9
Stack the dishes in a rack. Do not stack dishes one on top of another as water must have free access
to all sides of every dish. Stand plates and dishes up edgewise in a peg-type rack (Fig. 9). Cups,
glasses, and bowls should be inverted in an open-type or compartment type rack (Fig. 9). Silverware
and other small pieces may be scattered loosely over the bottom of a flat bottom rack.
DO NOT allow foreign objects to enter the unit, especially metallic contaminants.
The dishwasher can be operated automatically or manually by setting the cycle switch in the desired
position.
When the CYCLE SWITCH (Fig. 8) is set on AUTOMATIC, the wash and rinse cycles begin automatically.
The wash cycle is initiated when the machine doors are closed. The rinse cycle begins when the wash
cycle is completed. NOTE: When the CYCLE SWITCH is set on AUTOMATIC, the WASH / RINSE switch
(Fig. 8) must be OFF.
When the CYCLE SWITCH is set on MANUAL, the wash cycle is initiated by placing the WASH / R INSE switch
in the WASH position. After the desired wash time (minimum 40 seconds recommended), hold the
WASH / RINSE switch in the RINSE position for the desired rinse time (minimum 18 seconds recommended).
After filling a rack, open the appropriate doors, slide the rack into the dishwasher, and close the doors.
If the cycle switch is set on AUTOMATIC, the wash cycle will begin automatically.
Throughout the wash cycle, the tank water temperature will be displayed on the control box readout,
along with the word WASH. During the rinse cycle, the rinse water temperature will be displayed, along
with the word RINSE. When the rinse cycle is completed, the readout will display the tank water
temperature.
The rinse temperature may be adjusted on
machines equipped with electric booster water
heater by turning the adjustment screw (Fig. 10)
clockwise to increase the temperature, or
counterclockwise to decrease temperature. If
proper rinse temperature cannot be maintained,
push the red reset button (Fig. 10). If this does not
correct the situation, contact Service.
When the wash and rinse cycles are finished,
open the doors, remove the clean dishes, slide in
another rack, and close the doors.
If you want to add a dish after the wash cycle has
started, turn off the power switch and wait 10
seconds to allow wash arm coastdown and avoid
water splashing before opening the doors.

MAINTENANCE
WARNING: DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY (BOTH DISHWASHER AND BOOSTER
IF APPLICABLE) AND PLACE A TAG(S) AT THE DISCONNECT SWITCH(ES) TO INDICATE THE
CIRCUIT(S) ARE BEING WORKED ON BEFORE BEGINNING ANY MAINTENANCE PROCEDURE.
WASH ARMS
Upper and lower wash and rinse arms (Figs. 11, 12) should turn freely and continue turning for a few
seconds after being whirled by hand. To check, DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY
(BOTH DISHWASHER AND BOOSTER IF APPLICABLE), rotate arms, and remove any obstructions
causing improper operation.
If the slanted strainer or strainer bucket is not properly in place, obstructions (such as food particles
or bones) may clog the wash arm nozzles. The wash arms are easily removed for cleaning.
Removing Wash / Rinse Arms — AM14 / AM14C
To remove the lower wash arm, first lift off the rinse arm; then, using a dowel (or end of punch),
unscrew the rinse arm bearing pin (Fig. 11) and lift off the lower wash arm. It is not necessary
to remove the spacer located on the lower wash arm shaft.
The upper wash and rinse arms are removed by unscrewing the hand knob (Fig. 12) and lowering
both arms together. Be careful not to drop these arms.
MOTOR(S)
The wash pump motor and the blower motor used on gas heat machines are equipped with
permanently lubricated bearings and require no lubrication maintenance.
GAS FLUE (Machines equipped for gas heat only.)
When cool, check the flue opening every three months for obstructions.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Manual Reset Button on Pump Motors (When Equipped)
MOTOR ENDBELL
MOTOR RESET BUTTON
In case the pump becomes overheated, the thermal overload will
cause the motor to not operate. Motors equipped with Automatic
