20 Most Recent Jackson 25 in. TempStar HH Free-standing Dishwasher Questions & Answers

Hello. If the unit is rated 460v, 3phase, the only way you can get it to meet your supply of 208v, 3phase, is:
a) have a transformer installed to make 460 from your supply by an electrician, or call your power company and see if 460 could be supplied to your building, but it would only be for that machine.
b) replace the heating elements for the 208v supply, have the pump motor checked to see if it will work on 208v, and a control transformer for the control circuit, as well as all the wiring related to the pump and heaters, as on 208v, they will draw more current than on 460.
so, can it be done? yes. Is the expense worth it? only you can answer that, However I would suggest that you resell that machine, and get the correct one from the start.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

typically 6 gauge is what is needed for that voltage

Well, while I must admit that "Percussive" maintenance, sometimes works, as you have discovered there is more to servicing than, just "Giving it a good whack" lol.
The problems with these units, is usually to do with the Thermostat, and/or the Main Controller Board, the MCB, is prone to "Spikes". "Surges", and mains borne problems.
The first thing to replace should be the Thermostat and or sensor thermistor. Usually we replace the Thermistor, or Temp Sensor, and, try that first, and if no go, then the Thermostat itself, and then if no go, the main Board. I provide you with a parts supplier below. Below that is the Jackson support website to assist you. Please contact them, and ask for a referral to an authorised repair center. Then ask the repair center for a "Quote" for the repair before allowing any work to commence. If you do not wish to DIY.

However it is my professional recommendation that you call a professional to attend to this matter.

Maybe and probably. Speak with your Jackson distributor about this. He probably has a solution for you that is compatable with your equipment.

The sensor is a plastic pipe (vacume) / and a ajustable switch. The rise in water causes the air pressure in the pipe to increase and at the set level this stops the water inlet valve. You could disconnect the pipe and blow into it slowly and should hear the switch click. Most faults are the plastic sensor pipe blocked / obstructed and or the switch terminals (inside switch) burnt. This means that the switch must be replaced and should be set for the correct water inlet.

You will need to take the cover off of the breaker panel. Find the three lugs that the incoming hot wires are hooked to. With three phase you will have three hot lines. Check the voltage between the phases. L1 - L2- L2- L3- and L1 - L3 Also check the voltage from each line to ground. If you havw 120/208 three phase current you will have 208 +or- a few voltage between the phases and 120 or so from each line to ground. If you have 120/240 three phase you will have 240v across the phases and 120 to ground on two legs and 208 to ground on one leg, this is called a "wild" or high leg. You may also have 480v into the shop and you will know that very quickily if you get 480v between phases. No matter if you have another voltage, you can buy a trandformer that can convert whatever you have to 208/120 3 phase for your unit.

ef24c2b.jpgWell, why didn't you say so... Please see attached pic. This is the latest version. The HH design differs only slightly from this. (from this pic, you can't see the difference) Let me know if you require further pics. The machine sits next to me most days...

Ivy My field is in home appliances. I do fix my own computers and have replaced a few power supplys. The only thing I could say to you is go back and recheck your connections. They should only fit on the bord one way. The other connections for the hard drive and cd drives and so on really dont matter. so good luck and I think if you recheck it all the computer will work.

hi,im a hobart service tech.couple of things to try (you may already have)--check the wash arms at the seams make sure their not cracked,make sure the drain is sealed and not leaking at all.if the unit loses any water or the wash arms are cracked at the seam the unit will sound like its starving for water.make sure the unit is leveled.next time you go back if its acting up pour a half gallon of water in the tank and see if it runs correctly,if it does you could be losing water or the water fill vave could be acting up and not letting enough water in.let me know.
