To attempt to solve the over filling, clean the probes in the back right corner. Use a green scrubby pad.

There is also two probes under the front screen. Clean them too.

As far as the booster not working, there could be many reasons. One of the few things that you can attempt is resetting the hi-limit. Turn off the breaker. Remove the bottom panel. Look to the right side. Look for a black mushroom platic piece with a little button in the middle. It will click if it was tripped.

Some booster use a disc type of hi-limit. These type are a little stainless and plastic barrel. There is a red button between two electrical connectors. It will click also.

Good luck - Mike

Hobart lx18h Booster does not heat up. machine powers up and will wash thouugh all cycles but the booster does not heat up water.


There are one or two hi-limit relays on the booster. One is on the front and if there is a second one, it is on the right hand side as you face the front of the unit. They are both manully have to be reset if tripped. Check them and also the booster's contacter

Hello There; If your unit stuck on the wash cycle and not advance to rinse cycle because the rinse water is not up to 180 degree . You've to check out the booster element and the rinse temp. I hope this will help.

Hobart sr24h dishwasher won't get up to temp.


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.

Rinse not hot enough


145 degree is just your hot water temp and that your dishwasher hot water booster is not working assuming that this machine has worked in the past to produce final rinse water above 180 degrees. Remove the bottom panel and to the right you will see the booster tank, look for a nickel size component with a small red button on it. Try pushing on it to reset it. If that does not work, check for voltage at your heating element on your booster tank. (the thicker wires) If voltage is present then your heating elements need replacing.

Hobart LX30


Hopefully you took the suggestion to run the correct 50 amp 208-240 service to the unit.

Converting the unit to an LX30C has a couple of pitfalls. The LX30C is connected directly to the incoming water supply, which should run 120-140 degrees. By reprogramming the unit as an LX30C, the booster would be disabled, which would mean the incoming water would flow through the de-energized booster and be cooling off while it sits in there between cycles and when the unit is shut down.

The incoming fill plumbing (5/8" heater hose) would have to reconnected from the fill solenoid valve directly to the vacuum breaker on the rear of the unit to bypass the booster heater.

On the 208-240 volt LX18/30/40's, the pump motor, booster heater, and sump heater run on 208-240. To convert it to 120 volts you would have to replace the sump heater and reconfigure the motor wiring in the motor junction box.

By the time this is all done, you've downgraded a great machine, confused the next service guy, and have to deal with nasty chlorine and all of it's headaches.

Not reaching temp


On the machine that we have, there are two [2]push button switches in line for the heater tank. One is on the front of the tank and the other is around the right side. I have always called them clicks-on's but.. they are red in color and need to be rested if ever they get to hot. Be sure to relise that they did infact pop for some resone. Did the tank for some resone run dry?
