Hobart Dishwasher electrical connection

Somebody disconnected our AM-14 to redo the floor, and left it disconnected. I know basically where the wires went, but could use some help or a diagram.

    We put a new floor down and had to disconnect the dishwasher and move it. Now we are uncertain how to reconnect the electrical, and where to mount the box.

Hi chefmail,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know: Somebody disconnected our AM-14 to redo the floor, and left it disconnected. You know basically where the wires went, but could use some help or a diagram.

I generally don't recomend this to the average homeowner so lets assume you're above average.
Lets also assume that the fellow who removed it knew what he was doing (he should have reinstalled it for you).
If all you need is help with the wireing:
First double check that the power is off.
There should be a romex connector a few inches from the end of the wire. If it's not there he may have left it attached to the junction box under the d/w. You must use a romex connector to connect the wire to the junction box. Make sure the romex connector is on the cover insulation not on the individual wires. The wires are color coded. Connect the blacks together, the whites together and the ground to the green wire (sometimes to a gound screw). Be carefull that the wire nuts are tight but none of the wire ends broke. Before you put the cover on finish instaling the d/w, water line, drain line, counter screws and be carefull to make sure the d/w is perfectly level. Turn on the water and check for leaks. Turn on the power and test the unit. Then put the junction box cover on. All that's left is the kick plate. If you run into problems you might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Hobart am 14 wont drain


It is easy to have foodstuffs and grease in the plumbing of a restaurant. If you open the grease trap does it overflow onto the floor. If there is no flow to the grease trap then you need not only an electric eel but possibly a root cutter attachment from a very professional company. Not the ordinary plumber or do it your self rental equipment.

Makes sure all screens are in nothing in tank under them (spoons especialy). turn power switch on, shut door and it fills, should say fill on led display. once its filled open door and put tray in shut door and it starts wash cycle. led will say wash then it will go into rinse. when risnes dispaly turs of its finished. open doors take tray out. put next tray in. to drain out to clean there is a little moon shaped lever right above basket it will life the drain stand pipe greay plastic tube under screens and it will drain out shut door turn on the switch and it will fill back up and off you go. Soap wil be with a privet vendor if you have a already installed soap system call them and they most likely have reps who cann show you you basics.

Verifying breaker rating of AM-14


Commercial dishwashers don't take it for granted that the hot water is hot enough to sanitize. And, they know restaurants need to turn dishes.

So there is enough heat to make sure warm water heats up quickly to sanitizing temperatures.
