General safety rules
NOTE
The following safety instructions are for your protection as well as the protection of
others and the dishwasher. Compliance with the instructions is therefore absolutely
necessary.
5.1
Operator’s duty of care
This machine has been constructed and designed based on a risk assessment and careful selection of the applicable harmonised standards, as well
as additional technical specifications.
It is therefore state of the art and guaranteed to provide maximum safety. Safety
can only be guaranteed during operation if all necessary measures are taken.
The operator of the installation has an obligation of care to ensure that these
measures are planned for, and also to check that they are correctly implemented.
5.2
Measures to ensure safe system operation
The operator must ensure in particular that ...

a locally available power disconnection unit is installed. The power disconnection unit must be easily accessible and in the direct vicinity of the warewashing
machine.
The following requirements must be fulfilled:
– Load-break switch as per IEC 60947-3
– Utilisation category AC23B
– Lockable in OFF position
– Protection class against water IPX5
– The load-break switch must be installed in the direct vicinity of the
machine and must be easily accessible at a height of 0.6 - 1.9m
– Short-circuit breaking capacity >= 10kA
– Load-break switch rated operating current
– >= Machine's total current (type label) + 10%
– Neutral conductor shutdown optional

the dishwashing machine is used in accordance with the regulations only.
in case of other use or operation, damage or risks may arise for which we accept no liability (cf. chapter "Intended use").
9726766

in order to preserve the operational and safety guarantees, whenever required, only original parts supplied by the manufacturer are used. Any potential claims by the user shall be rendered void if the system was altered using
parts other than original spare parts.

only appropriately qualified and authorized personnel use, maintain, and repair the installation.

staff is regularly trained in all questions relating to occupational safety and environmental protection and, in particular, that staff is familiar with the operating
instructions as well as with the safety instructions they provide.
Design and construction subject to change without prior notice!
Page 12 of 42
Operating instructions for rack type dishwashing machine , model Upster K

the dishwashing machine is only operated in a perfect, operationally efficient
condition and, in particular, that the safety systems and switch elements are
checked on a regular basis for their operational efficiency.

the required personal protective equipment is made available to and used by
maintenance and repair personnel.

a functional test on all safety systems of the installation is carried out during
every regular maintenance.

all the safety, warning and operating instructions provided are not removed
and are legible.

any necessary initial tests to parts supplied by sub-suppliers, such as heat
pumps or other equipment, must be carried out. More detailed information, if
required, can be found in the relevant operating instructions.

there are no further modifications after assembly, commissioning and handover of the dishwashing machine to customers/operators (e.g. electrical modifications or location changes). modifications to the dishwashing machine, and
in particular technical modifications carried out without the manufacturer’s written authorization, or any modifications carried out by unauthorized persons,
will lead to the complete loss of any guarantee claims and will invalidate any
liability for the product.

equipment for optimising energy consumption must not be used to reduce essential operating temperatures, as set out in DIN 10511, 10512 and 10522. If
you, the client, install equipment for optimising energy consumption, any possible reduction in the quality of the wash and hygiene is your responsibility.
5.3
Basic safety measures
DANGER
Risk of injury due to electric shock, damage to property.
Parts carrying electric current as well as moving or rotating parts can
cause·danger to the user’s life and limb and material damage.
Danger can arise from the improper use of the machine or if it is used for purposes for which it was not intended.
The machine may only be operated by adequately qualified staff who have been
trained by the operating company and who have been trained about the hazard
and safety instructions.
When electrical equipment is in operation, it is inevitable that certain parts carry
a dangerous current.
The entire dishwashing machine must be de-energised before opening dishwashing machine cover panels or electrical equipment.
SWITCH the locally available MAIN SWITCH TO “OFF“ and install suitable locking devices to prevent the switch from being switched back on.
Work and troubleshooting on electrical parts of the dishwashing machine must
be performed by specialists only. Observe accident prevention regulations.
The operator must not restart the dishwashing machine until all cover panels
have been put back in place.

12 Maintenance and care
12.1
Care, general
The installation has been designed to keep the need for cleaning, care and
maintenance to a minimum.
However, for reliable, safe and long-term function of the installation, and in the interest of hygiene and cleanliness, correct care and maintenance is necessary.
12.2
Care of stainless steel surfaces
We recommend cleaning the stainless steel surfaces only when needed with
cleaner and care products suitable for stainless steel.
Lightly soiled parts can be wiped with a (possibly damp) cloth or sponge.
Be sure to wipe dry after cleaning to avoid traces of scale. Use demineralised water if possible.
Do not use aggressive cleaning or scouring agents.
The care products must not attack the stainless steel, form deposits, or cause discoloration.
Never use cleaning agents that contain hydrochloric acid or bleaches based on
chlorine.
Never use cleaning equipment that you have used previously by non-stainless
steel to avoid external corrosion.
Aggressive, external influences due to cleaning and care products that evaporate
in the vicinity of the system, or direct application, may lead to system damage and
put the material at risk (e.g. aggressive tile cleaners).
Caution!
Observe the manufacturers' hazard warnings on the original containers and safety
data sheets.
12.3
Check list after cleaning
Make sure you reinstall all parts correctly after having cleaned the dishwashing
machine.
Check that the following parts are present and in the correct position:
 check the tank cover screens
 rinse pipes
 pump rinse pipes
 curtains
 wash systems at the top and bottom
 check the wash pipe end caps for completeness
The dishwashing machine is now ready for the next shift.
Do not use a foaming detergent for
dish-washing by hand for precleaning close to the dish-washer.
CAUTION!!!
Foam can cause malfunctions in the
dish-washer and a poor wash.
9726766
Design and construction subject to change without prior notice!
Page 31 of 42
Operating instructions for rack type dishwashing machine , model Upster K
12.4
Dosing of the detergent/rinse agent
The quantity of detergent needed to be added into the wash tank or wash tanks is
the quantity of detergent that ensures that all dishes, etc. leave the dish-washer in
a clean condition.
It is impossible to give information on quantities here as the quantity depends on:
 the dosing system (liquid, powder, block, spray; etc.)
 the amount of soiling
 the drying time
 the preheating (of the dishes, for example)
 the quantity of starch present
 the water quality
 the type of detergent used (a disinfecting detergent or otherwise, etc.)
There can also be differences between one chemical product supplier and another.
The wash ware's degree of cleanliness may also be influenced by the transport
speed of the dishwashing machine.
We recommend that you ask your chemical product supplier to regulate the quantity settings on the machine.
We do not recommend manual detergent dosing.
Observe safety information on handling chemical substances as per manufacturer
information provided by the chemical product supplier.
When changing the cleaner or rinse aid, wear personal protective
equipment in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.
Wear personal protective equipment.
Switch off the main switch when replacing detergent or rinse aid
Important: detergent, rinse aid and other additives must exclusively be used as intended.
The correct quantities of detergent, rinse aid and water depend on each other.
Observe the instructions by chemical product suppliers regarding dosing/use.
In particular verify all chemical substances are compatible with each other.

Design and construction subject to change without prior notice!
Page 32 of 42
Operating instructions for rack type dishwashing machine , model Upster K
12.5
Descaling the machine
Using very hard water may cause unfavourable lime deposits within the machine.
However, apart from this (white, rough coat), lime deposits do not influence the
dishwashing results.
However, the lime-scale deposits on the wash tank heating elements and in the
rinse water flow heater are much more serious. An excessively thick layer on the
heating element acts as a thermal insulator and so prevents the transfer of heat
from the heating element into the water. As a result the heating element overheats
and burns out.
Lime-scale deposits can be removed with special scale removal products (ask your
chemical product supplier). However, these products contain acid and are very aggressive. They should therefore not be used too frequently and must on no account
be used in a too high concentration as they can attack and destroy not just the
lime-scale deposits but also other parts of the machine.
Only use scale remover suitable for commercial warewashing machines. Do not
use said substances for any other purpose than their intended purpose. Please
contact the manufacturers of these products für information.
Scale remover may contain hazardous substances. Observe the manufacturers'
hazard warnings on the original containers and safety data sheets. Observe the instructions by chemical product suppliers regarding dosing/use.
When performing any decalcification work, wear personal protective equipment in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.
When carrying out this work the Instructions for Use and the Hazard Warnings for
the lime-scale remover must be strictly observed.
After removing lime-scale, the machine MUST be thoroughly flushed out and emptied to ensure that all residues from the lime-scale remover have been neutralised.
The machine should then be refilled and allowed to run for at least 15 minutes.
13 Operating errors
Despite being expertly designed, the machine may develop minor faults which are
usually easy to eliminate. This section explains a number of possible problems and
how you can deal with them yourself.
DANGER
Risk of injury due to electric shock! Damage to property!
Always de-energise the system before carrying out work on the open system.
For this purpose, switch off the system power supply using the locally available
mains disconnector and secure it using a padlock.
The key for this lock must be kept in the hands of the person carrying out the
maintenance and repair work!
Failure to observe these precautions can result in severe injury or damage to property.
Should any of the operational faults described arise repeatedly, their cause must
be established in each case.

Suction system has failed
Curtains are missing
Temperatures too high
Wash arms, drying nozzles, air guide plates bent
or not correctly inserted
Rinse water mineral content too high (see operating instructions)
If only found at certain times, check water softening unit with a view to regeneration.
Water pre-treatment defective or not carried out
Different water type depending on the waterworks
Unsuitable rinse agent or wrong dispensed
quantity.
Incorrectly fitted or missing curtains
Oversize containers previously washed. This
causes detergent to be transferred to rear tanks.
Too fast conveyor speed
Detergent for dish-washing by hand enters the
wash tank because of pre-cleaning the dishes
Daily cleaning of the machine is carried out with
foaming cleaning agents which afterwards enter
the machine.
Improve pre-wash, as too much food residue is
entering the tanks. Alternatively, empty wash
tanks between uses.
Final rinse water quantity too low
Detergent or rinse aid product not suitable
Temperatures too low < 40°C
As a rule, faults that are not described herein require assistance from an authorised Service technician. Please contact your factory representative or authorised
dealer.

Maintenance, servicing
Regular maintenance is a prerequisite for the long-term reliable and safe operation
of a warewashing machine. Maintenance which is neglected or improperly carried
out increases the residual risk of unforeseen damage to property and persons, for
which no liability will then be assumed.
We recommend you conclude a maintenance contract with our agency to guarantee a long service life of the system.
Observe the maintenance intervals prescribed in the operating instructions!
Observe the maintenance instructions for the individual components!
A functional test on all safety systems of the installation is carried out during every
regular maintenance.
Lubricants, cooling or cleaning agents endangering the environment must be
properly disposed of!

15.1
Basic safety measures during normal operation
DANGER
Risk of injury due to electric shock! Damage to property!
Switch off the power supply using the locally available mains disconnector prior to
any maintenance or repair work and secure it with a padlock!
The key for this lock must be kept in the hands of the person carrying out the
maintenance and repair work!
Failure to observe these precautions can result in severe injury or damage to property.
WARNING
Risk of injury or severe injury!
Caused by unauthorised access.
Set up a safety fence during maintenance procedures to prevent unauthorised access.
Existing safety systems must not be removed!
As a matter of principle, no safety systems may be disassembled or decommissioned
(except in the event of maintenance and repair work)!
Danger of scalding!
Before carrying out any maintenance and repair work, ensure that all the parts of the
machine that may be touched have cooled down to room temperature!
15.1.1 Before setting in operation - after maintenance and repair
works
Legal requirements relating to the avoidance of waste materials and to their recycling/removal in accordance with applicable regulations must be observed!
In particular, during installation, repair and maintenance work, materials that could
pollute water must not pollute the ground or run into the sewerage system:

grease and oils

hydraulic oils

coolant
 cleaning fluids containing solvents
These materials must be stored, shipped, collected and disposed of in suitable
containers!

Non-ionising radiation
Non-ionising radiation is not produced intentionally but unfortunately comes about
due to electrical operating equipment (e.g. electrical motors, high-voltage cables
and magnetic coils). In addition the installation has no strong permanent magnet.
There is a high possibility of eliminating any influence on active implants (e.g.
pacers, defibrillators) by maintaining a safety distance of 30 cm (distance of the
field source to the implant).
