Section 3
Operation
F14EI Series (Individual Wells)
F14EW Series (Single Tank)
Before the unit is used the first time for serving, turn the
temperature knob to “HI” and heat the well for 20 to 30
minutes. Any residue or dust that adhered to the heater
element(s) will be burned off during this initial preheat
period.
These units must be operated with 4” (102mm) minimum
water in the well. If operated dry, a low water safety switch
will interrupt the electric supply to the heater to prevent
heater failure. If the low water safety switch shuts off
power, turn the control to the OFF position. If the water
level is below the heating element, allow the well to cool
completely, then refill with water. Reactivate the well
by turning the control ON and resetting to the previous
temperature.
NOTE: Never place food directly into the well. Always use
pans.
Although these models may be operated either with or
without water in the wells, wet operation is recommended.
When using thick sauces always operate the hot food
well filled with water. This will provide a more uniform
temperature for the sauce.
Always place covers on pans when not serving to prevent
food from drying out and to reduce your operating cost.
For most efficient operation when empty, keep covered
insets in each well during preheating and when the well is
not in use.
Do not put food down drain.
WET OPERATION
1. Fill food well with 2” (50mm) of water. For quicker preheating, use hot water to fill the well.
2. Turn the control to “HIGH” and pre-heat the warmer for
30 minutes.
3. After pre-heating, set the control to your desired
serving temperature.
DRY OPERATION
1. Pre-heat the well on “HIGH” for approximately 15
minutes.
Continuous interruption of power due to a low water level
may disable the heater permanently. Pouring water on a
hot heating element will damage it.
NOTE: Never place food directly into the well. Always use
pans.
Always place covers on pans when not serving to prevent
food from drying out and to reduce your operating cost.
For most efficient operation, when empty, keep covered
insets in each well during preheating and when the well is
not in use.
WET OPERATION
1. Fill food well with 4” (102mm) of water (heater must
be covered by water). For quicker pre-heating, use hot
water to fill the well.
2. Set the control to your desired serving temperature.

Operation
Section 3
F14EI-ESP Series (Energy Saving Power)
These units are designed to hold warm food product
between 140F to 160F (60C to 71C).
F14EI-ESP series individually heated hot food units may be
operated “wet” (with water in the wells) or “dry”. However,
“dry” operation using 6.0” deep pans produces optimum
performance.
A power switch and digital control are provided for each
individual heated food well. After the unit is hard wired to
the electrical system, turn the power switch ON and the
digital display will read OFF. Press Set and then use the
arrows to select the desired temperature setting (1-10).
The new temperature setting is entered 3 seconds after the
last button is pressed. When the power switch is used to
turn the well OFF and back ON the temperature setting will
remain.
NOTE: Never place food directly in well. Always use pans.
WET OPERATION
Fill the food well with a minimum of 2” (5cm) of water
and cover with lid or empty pan. To preheat water, set
temperature control at 3. With pans in place, wells will boil
water. Food temperature will vary depending on type and
amount of product. To minimize steam and water usage,
set control at lowest setting that will maintain proper food
temperature. To reduce preheating time, use hot water to
fill the well. Preheating time with room temperature water
is one hour.
DRY OPERATION
Dry operation is more efficient and is preferred.
When operated dry, the bottom of the well will discolor. To
clean, use a stainless steel cleaner or mild abrasive.
When operated dry, the well bottoms become very hot. Do
not allow unprotected skin to contact any well surface.
For most efficient operation, keep covered inserts in each
well during preheating or when empty.
Always place covers on pans when not serving to prevent
food from drying out.

General
Food Wells
You are responsible for maintaining the equipment
in accordance with the instructions in this manual.
Maintenance procedures are not covered by the warranty.
The interior of the food wells should be cleaned daily with a
non-abrasive cleaner and non-abrasive pad. If necessary, a
mild abrasive may be used on the interior of the pans only.
Hard water stains and lime scaling may require a special
cleaning product.
Stainless Steel Cleaning
Clean the unit and around it as often as necessary to
maintain cleanliness and efficient operation.
•
Follow product instructions carefully if a sanitizer is
used.
Wipe surfaces with a damp cloth rinsed in water to remove
dust and dirt from the unit. Always rub with the “grain” of
the stainless steel to avoid marring the finish. If a greasy
residue persists, use a damp cloth rinsed in a mild dish soap
and water solution. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
•
Do not to leave cleaners in a food well overnight or for
an extended period of time.
•
Never use steel wool.
•
Never use a high-pressure water wash for cleaning as
water can damage the electrical components.
Never use steel wool or abrasive pads for cleaning. Never
use chlorinated, citrus based or abrasive cleaners.
Stainless steel exterior panels have a clear coating that
is stain resistant and easy to clean. Products containing
abrasives will damage the coating and scratch the panels.
Daily cleaning may be followed by an application of
stainless steel cleaner which will eliminate water spotting
and fingerprints. Early signs of stainless steel breakdown
are small pits and cracks. If this has begun, clean thoroughly
and start to apply stainless steel cleaners in attempt to
restore the steel.
