Section 1 INTRODUCTION
THIS OWNERS MANUAL CONTAINS DESCRIPTIVE INFORMATION, INSTALLATION, OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS,
MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLE-SHOOTING INFORMATION FOR MODELS FT6CE, FT10CE & FT12CE STEAM-JACKETED
KETTLES. PARTS LISTS ARE ALSO INCLUDED IN WHICH EACH REPLACEABLE PART IS IDENTIFIED AND SHOWN IN
AN ACCOMPANYING ILLUSTRATION
3. Thermostatic control contacts close to energize contactor
coils.
1.1 DESCRIPTION
Market Forge Model FT-20CE (20 gallon capacity) is
electrically powered, self-contained, counter-top, tilting
Kettle. Each model has a jacket of double-wall construction
forming a sealed reservoir around the lower 2/3 of the kettle.
The reservoir is charged with water and anti-freeze solution.
Kettles are equipped with a removable electric heating
element and controls, including a low water cutoff device for
protection of the heating element. Both models are of
identical construction, except for kettle size and element
heating capacity.
4. Power is supplied to the elements through closed power
contactors.
5. As the temperature of water rises in the kettle reservoir.
increase in steam pressure is indicated on the pressure
gauge.
6. When the temperature of steam in the reservoir reaches
the setting shown on the temperature control dial the
temperature controller opens to break the contacts and
shut off the heating element. ON/OFF cycles will occur as
required to maintain temperature control. See Section 3.
1.2 BASIC FUNCTIONING
Self-contained kettles operate by generating steam in the
kettle reservoir. The sequence of operation is as follows:
1.3 SERVICE
1. Operator flips the power switch to the ON position and
sets the temperature control dial at the desired setting
from 1 to 10 (90°F to 300°F, 32°C to 149°C, jacket
temperature).
Required service. both preventive and corrective. is
explained in Section 3. Should repairs be required. a network
of authorized agencies is available to assist with prompt
service. A current Directory of Authorized Service Agencies
may be obtained by contacting:
2. Control circuit is normally completed to the temp- erature
controller if the following conditions exist:

a. Water level in kettle reservoir is adequate to prevent
circuit interruption by the low water cutoff device. An
activated cutoff is indicated by the amber low water light
turning on, and the heating element shutting off.
The model and serial numbers must be referenced when
corresponding with Market Forge. These numbers can be
found on the data plate located on the right side of the
control box.
b. Kettle is in vertical position with circuit completed
through the tilt interlock switch (Micro switch).

c) Remove kettle from counter and locate position of 4 holes as per above drawing. Drill four 7/6" diameter holes.
d) Apply a continuous bead of Silastic or other equivalent sealant along the complete perimeter edge of the kettle base.
e) Use 5/16 - 18 x 1 1/2" Hex Cap Screws with suitable flat washers to bolt down.
f) Wipe off excess sealant.
g) A Control Box with power supply equivalent to Electrical Rating of kettle should be located conveniently nearby.
h) A waterproof electrical connection for power supply to console housing must be provided.
i) Ground kettle to terminal provided inside console housing.
j) Turn power ON and check for proper operation. (See Section 3).

MODEL: FF-20CE
ELECTRIC SELF-GENERATING COUNTER- TOP STEAM JACKETED KETTLE
3.1 COOKING
1. Ensure that the external electrical shut-off to kettle is on.
2. Check pressure gauge for correct cold kettle reading. Reading should be 25-30 In.Hg (84-100 k/Pa) of vacuum. If reading is
not low enough, follow VENTING procedure prior to using kettle. (See Section 3.3).
3. Place power switch in ON position.
4. Preheat kettle by placing thermostat knob at '10' and wait until TEMPERATURE light goes off.
NOTE: Preheating should not be used when cooking milk and egg food products which adhere to hot cooking surfaces. These
foods should be placed into kettle before heating is begun.
5. Add food to be cooked into kettle.
6. Place thermostat knob at required temperature setting from '1' to '10' coinciding with a temperature range from roughly 90°F to
300°F (32°C to 149°C) in the reservoir. Approximate cooking temperatures with water at various thermostat settings are as

3.2 CLEANING
The kettle interior and exterior should be thoroughly washed after each use in preparation of a different food.
1. Add water and mild detergent to the kettle immediately after use.
2. Scrub kettle interior with a nylon brush.
NOTE: Never scrape the inside of kettle with metal tools, steel scouring pads, or abrasive cleaners. Scratches will result which
will spoil the kettle's general appearance and make it harder to clean and maintain in a sanitary condition.
3. Loosen food which is stuck to kettle by allowing it to soak at a low temperature setting.
4. Rinse with clear water and dry.
WARNING: Do not hose down unit under any condition. Failure to comply will void warranty.
5. Wipe down exterior, rinse and dry.

Bleed Vent
3.3 VENTING
2.
Pressure Relief Valve
Check vacuum/pressure gauge when kettle is cold. Gauge should be in the vacuum
zone between 25-30 In. Hg (84-100k/Pa). If not, air is present which must be vented
(removed) for proper heating. Use the following procedures to vent air.
1. Place power switch in ON position; kettle empty.
2. Set temperature control thermostat to '10'. Heat kettle until heat indicator light goes off.
3. Using a 7/16" wrench, open bleed vent one full turn for 10 seconds and close.
4. Cool kettle. Check for proper vacuum of 25-30 In. Hg (84-100k/Pa). If reading is not
low enough, repeatentire procedure, steps 1-3.
3.4 FILLING-JACKET RESERVIOR
The reservoir water level must be maintained at or above the minimum needed to
submerge the heating elements. If the low water light turns on during use, the water
level is not adequate and the low water protection control has automatically shut off the
heating elements.
Figure 3-2 Safety Valve/Airvent (Rear of Kettle)
CAUTION: Before adding water to the reservoir, water supply should be analyzed to ensure that hardness is no greater than 2.0grains per gallon and pH level is within the range of 7.0-8.5. Water which fails to meet these standards should be
treated, or ionized distilled water with sodium used. EQUIPMENT FAILURE CAUSED BY INADEQUATE WATER
QUALITY IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.
Use the following procedure to fill reservoir. Check vacuum/pressure gauge to ensure that there is no pressure in kettle when
adding water.
1. Turn thermostat and power switch to OFF position.
2. Remove 7/16" vent fitting from bleed vent on back of kettle. Insert a funnel into vent opening and add prescribed volume of
water. 20 gallon model, add 200 ounces (6 liters).
3. Replace and tighten vent fitting.
4. With kettle in upright position, the low water light should be off at this time. If so, follow venting procedure to vent air from
reservoir (see Sec. 3.3 Venting). If low water light is not off, repeat Sec. 3.4, Filling Jacket Reservoir.
