OPERATION
WARNING: SHARP BLADES. KEEP HANDS CLEAR OF ALL MOVING PARTS WITH SPECIAL
ATTENTION TO FOOD CUTTING DISCHARGE AREAS. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER
SUPPLY BEFORE CLEANING OR SERVICING.
IMPORTANT: Cool loaves to room temperature before slicing.
CONTROLS (Fig. 2)
STOP Switch
— PULL STOP SWITCH OUT to turn power to the machine's control circuit ON.
PUSH STOP SWITCH IN to turn power to the bread slicer OFF.
NOTE: The Bread Slicer remains IDLE until the Pusher Lever is pushed toward the
rear.
Pusher Lever
— Push the Pusher Lever toward the rear to start machine operation (the STOP
Switch is pulled out and the crumb drawer is closed). As the Pusher Lever
moves all the way to the rear, a loaf of bread can be placed on the rear table
between the pusher and the blades.
As the lever is lowered, the pusher moves the loaf toward the blades.
Do not release the Pusher Lever if hands or any object other than a loaf of
bread can come in contact with the slicing blades.
The Pusher Lever's spring provides the force to return the lever forward,
pushing the bread through the moving blades:
• Restrain the lever to gently advance soft bread through the moving
blades.
• Release the lever to provide additional push for firm bread as it moves
through the blades.
The operator's hand on the Pusher Lever's return stroke determines the force
applied to the loaf as it is sliced.
• Take the bread from the front table with both
hands when almost sliced.
BAGGING SPADE
• KEEP AWAY FROM MOVING BLADES.
• Place the loaf on the bagging spade to bag it.
STOP SWITCH
When the Pusher Lever returns to the forward
position, the machine returns to IDLE with the
blades stopped.
PUSHER LEVER
The machine is ready to slice the next loaf.
NOTE: The crumb drawer must be fully closed
or the machine will not operate. Bread crumbs
can fall down the slanted front table through the
slot opening into the crumb drawer. Empty the
crumb drawer by pulling it out of the front of the
bread slicer.
