I love these machines. Keep it and fix the leak.

If you have a leak. You have to find out where it is coming from. Dripping water from the bottom of tank can be coming from a number of different places and at different times thru out the cycle. The rinse cycle or wash cycle or all the time.

The first place to check is the pump. It will leak during the wash cycle. Especially from the top gasket. This one commonly goes out.

The pump motor shaft seal will leak all the time but will drip from motor, not the tank area. You want to fix this before it ruins your motor bearings or motor.

But since you have a corner machine, the first thing to check is the rear door panel. This is were your door would be if you had a straight thru machine instead of a corner machine. It has teflon guides just like your actual doors and they do leak at times or all the time if the guides are
not sealing. IF food particles accumilate at the bottom of that panel it blocks the water from running back into machine and instead, onto your floor from the bottom of tank areas. This is anther common leak.
The teflon guides should be replaced if they have cracks in them or are brittle and flaking apart. Sometimes they slide down and can be push back up from inside the machine. In either case, you will need to clean all the crud from that back panel edge. Usually thats all I do to fix that leak is just clean it up and push those guides out to outside edge with the tip of my screwdriver to tighten the seal between them and the channel.

Hope that helps!

Where is the temperature sensor location on a hobart am14c dishwasher?

With no water in the tank, locate the float which is a low water safety. The temp probe should be directly above it. You can go on line to and find the manual for this machine and on page 42 it has a picture of it and the location.

AM 14 C commercial dishwasher. water leaks from "spinner spouts" when unit is not in use. Any ideas?

This sounds like the inlet magnetic solenoid valve is leaking, first thing to try is to turn off the main water valve beside the machine, if the water stops coming in then the inlet water solenoid valve or valves will need to be replaced
Good luck

Do all Hobart dishwashers have a element in them for wash water and rinse water

All Hobart dishwashers will have a wash tank heating element, but the rinse water is not heated by the dishwasher, unless it has a built-in booster heater. Usually a separate booster heater is used to heat rinse water to 180-190 deg. F for hot water sanitation.

Can I change the 3 phase to a single phase?

Not practical. You would have to change the pump motor to single phase, you'd have to chage the heating element most likely depending on what size is in it now. Also does it require an auxiliary water heater? it's probably 3 phase also. Changing phases is not like changing voltages.

Hobart am14c water keeps spraying even with power off

The internal parts of the solenoid valve are bad.if your standing in front of the machine look to the right in the back you will see the water line going to the valve.turn the water off,remove the black coil and set aside,then unscrew the valve with a pair of channelocks or pipe wrench.clean all the parts up and reinstall.if this doesnt do the trick you need to replace those parts.let me know.
