Question about Hobart AM15T Dishwasher

2 Answers

When are AM-14 tank heaters energized?

Just finished electrical installation for AM-14 for a customer, who purchased the dishwasher at an auction. It didn't come with a booster heater or gas heater. I've downloaded the operating instructions, but haven't found an answer to this question: the tank heaters are energized during the wash cycle (and maybe during the rinse cycle too--didn't check) but at no other time. Is this the normal operation? It would seem that if this is correct, then there wouldn't be much of an opportunity to raise the water temperature since the cycles are so short.
I would have expected the tank heaters to be energized as long as the tank water level was correct and the water temperature was below the setting. I'd be grateful for any thoughts, and thanks!...........Lee

When the float lifts in the wash tank, and the power is on, there is a few seconds delay before 2 con energises the wash tank heater. I is not dependant of the cycle, or if the door is open or not. If you open the control box door, you can monitor the wash heat led and 2 con. If you want to adjust the set point, the old boards have a heat sink in the middle, hold the yellow button near the top and adjust the trim poy on the board while observing the display. There should be a schematic attached to the waterproof barrier in the control box.

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.

Need to convert 3 phase Hobart dishwasher to single phase


It will not be inexpensive to convert your dishmachine over to three phase. With everything that you will need to replace, depending on the model if converyor or not it may run close to what it costs to have 3phase run to the building that you plan to move into.

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.
