Question about Dishwashers

2 Answers

Hobart Commercial Dishwasher - LX40H is overheating the water when it fills up. I have checked the programing and all set points are correct. When we open the door to load the dishwasher, It steams excessively for over a minute and I can hear a noise.

    I don't think it is the timer because the wash and rinse cycles time correctly. The water at the end of the cycle is showing over 200 degrees and that is above the high point. Any other thoughts?

    Is there only 1 thermostat or several?



    Thanks

  • Ferndale Sep 06, 2009

    Hobart does not list a Themostat in the parts catalog. The closest thing is "Control - Temperature Limiting"



    Thanks.

    The ebay part was for a AM14 dishwasher. The other sites you listed don't have Hobart dishwasher parts.



    Thanks for trying.

Hi there,

Well problem seems in the  Timer -
Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, then it cause the dishwasher to overheat, you need to replace the Timer, because it can't be repaired.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Temp. too hot


First off, the temp adjustment can only be made by a trained service tech, since the dishwasher will need to be reprogrammed to allow for a lower temperature in the rinse cycle but still have the higher temp needed in the wash cycle. Also, since any change in the water temp settings will require a longer wash and rinse cycle to be programmed into the unit.

Of course, you could simply lower the water temp on the water heater that supplies water to this unit, but you'd have lower temp water elsewhere and likely get cited at the next heatlh department inspection on that issue.

Since this is a commercial dishwasher, you might want to reconsider lowering the temp, since health codes and standards for commercial establishments require a MINIMUM water temperarture of 185 degrees F (85 degrees C) for proper operation and to get all the crud off the dishes, etc.

Note, the manufacturer sets these units to the higher temp, 203 degree F (95 degree C) knowing that the water will cool down quickly once the wash cycle starts and the water contacts the dishes, etc. That is also why these units have a added heater element, to help keep the water at the correct temperature needed to both clean AND sanitize the dishes, according to established health standards.

If you really want to change the water temp settings, contact your Hobart service rep and explain the reason you want it lower and see what they say.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!
