Question about Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher
Our hobart is supposed to get to 180 degrees but only makes it to about 160 degrees. The incoming water temp is 120 and there should be enough pressure. Once the machine is ready to go, the water level is about half way up the screen, which seems a little low. Is there some sort of incoming water screen that is plugged or is the booster not working?
The water level is low (should cover the bottom of the tank about a 1/4")and the pump is starving - therefor probably not washing very well.
three things to check
1. check braided fill hose for kinks (you will have to pull the machine out if under a counter). run the machine while pulled out if possible to ensure its not kinking when you push it in.
2. pressure reducing valve-prv (if installed) on the incomming water line before the braided hose (probably under a sink). turn the screw on top clockwise to increse pressure.
TURN THE BREAKER OFF TO DO THE FOLLOWING!!
3. flow regulator (if installed) - installed under the bottom pannel at the end of the braided fill hose (about 2" long and silver). turn off water. you can simply remove it, drill out the centre or just remove the rubber peice inside.
inrease the temp by adjusting the thermostat on the right side under the bottom pannel in front of the booster.(dail is hard to see and breaker must be turned off)
remember - the machine must be turned on for several minuets to truly get up to temp.
