Items NOT Covered Under Warranty

1. Replacing Fuses or resetting Overloads.

Replacing a blown fuse or resetting an open overload breaker is a very simple procedure and is the owner’s responsibility. If the machine continues to blow fuses or open the overload breaker, contact your nearest authorized Blakeslee Service Center.

2. Adjusting Tank Heats.

Heat adjustments are covered in The Owners Manual and must be adjusted depending upon desired results.

3. Proper Loading of Dishes.

It is important that the machine owner’s personnel observe the instructions outlined in The Owners Manual.

4. Cleaning Drain Valves.

Foreign articles lodged in the drain valve seat should be removed as a part of the normal daily cleaning.

5. Cleaning Rinse or Wash Nozzles and Line Strainers.

Keeping a dishwasher clean and removing obstructions from the nozzles and line strainers will be a periodic function of the machine owner’s personnel. The cleaning periods will vary depending upon impurities in the water supply and cleanliness of the washing operation.

6. Final Rinse Water.

Most frequent of all complaints in any dishwashing machine is that of poor final rinse. It is the responsibility of the owner to provide 180 to 195 degree (plus) water at 15-25 lb. flow pressure through clean unobstructed water lines. If the machine has a factory equipped final rinse water booster, the owner must supply the booster with a minimum of 140 degree temperature water.

Observe the following instructions to obtain maximum performance from the dishwashing machine.

1. Whenever possible, instruct bus boys or wait staff to stack the soiled dishes according to sizes as they are brought to the soiled dish table.

2. Remove by hand, rubber scraper, or pre-washing as much food particles left on the dishes as possible. This will reduce pollution of water, insure the cleanest possible wash water and lower detergent costs.

3. Rack dishes in appropriate rack as indicated in figure 4. When placing silverware in combination rack; you should be able to see many holes in the bottom of the rack after it is loaded. Dishes and all “flat” china should be stacked in the multi-purpose racks so that they lean back with the face of soiled surface of the dish exposed to the upper spray. Glasses, cups, bowls and other “deep” dishes should be placed face down in the combination racks.

Remember, whenever possible it is a good practice to have your bus boys or waitresses place cups, glasses and bowls directly in the combination rack. Do not overcrowd or overload the racks as the wash and rinse waters must reach all surfaces to obtain clean ware.

4. Scrape and rack more dishes and insert the racks of soiled ware into the machine.

5. Clean ware must be taken out of the racks and the empty racks removed from the clean dish table and returned to the soiled dish table for reloading. Do not let dish racks pile up on the clean dish table until they hit the end of the dish table as this subjects the conveyor to unnecessary strain. Let the washed and rinsed dishes remain in the racks for a minute or so until they have had a chance to drain and self dry. If the dishes are removed from the racks to soon, they will not be dry.

6. Continually check wash and rinse temperatures.

7. Be sure enough detergent is being added to the wash water to keep it at an effective strength if an automatic dispenser is not being used.

8. Detergents should be used according to the detergent manufacturer’s recommendations. Their representative knows the capabilities of their detergents and can determine the proper treatment of your water for proper use with their product. The wash water must be kept at an effective strength to obtain good washing results. Use a good detergent. Never use a foaming soap or soap flakes. Ask your local detergent man for his help and heed his advice.
