My Hobart lxe shows a fill error but when it drains there is a lot of water

Says to check main water supply/pressure. Everything coming from the building seems fine. What should I check next? Update- I disassembled a little to check for blockage in the tubes and initial reservoir that fills, little bit of mud like film and a small tubing to booster sensor i unclogged. Reassembled but got same check water supply fill error. Noticed that water wasn’t making it up along the side to the top blades. Can only make it half way up. I force immediate shutdown then turn on again. Machine says ready, I push wash and it goes through a dry was. I continue to put it through wash cycle until the water supply builds up. Eventually it works(different than before but hits the high temp of 180 during rinse so it’s passes health code. When it shuts down n I turn back on it’s back to fill error? Any ideas what wrong. Hobart charges nearly $600 just to come out to diagnose it and it can’t be applied to the cost to fix the machine. Help small Business owner in my first year!

I have a hobart lx-g model which i purchased used a month ago. At the start everything worked great...then when ever i would push the "off" button it would shut down and restart by iteself......

Hi,

Initially would suggest to check that the power supply requirements are satisfied. You might also need to check the breakers. Depending on the exact model number, the AC supply can be as shown below:

If the above checks out OK, then it could be as you have suspected, the controller is messed up, more specifically the firmware or related electronics. You could of course try a reset by unplugging from the mains or switching off the appropriate breakers for say half an hour.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Leaks water from bottom of door. Error code E7 ?

I found this and it also may have to do with the door seals...how old is the unit...if door seals get old and stiff..(not soft and pliable) they sometimes leak...after usage the heat and moisture may cause them to swell and or become soft thereby sealing better...but this is what I found in the user manual.

Machine displays "E7" on LX30 model or "CLEAN PROBE" on LX40 model.
1. Clean water sensors inside tank.
It suggests contacting Hobart if this fails but I also found this problem is associated with fill issues...as in an E4 error...this what you do in that case....

Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the

Good Luck and I hope this helps...let me know if it doesn't and i am sure I can get to the bottom of it...thanks for rating my effort...the Fang.

Hobart LX 30 P2 Error and unit overflowing!

Hi drogers77,

I'm not a Hobart technician, but here what I founded in my manual for the LX30 error message:

LX18 / LX30 display shows E0, E2, E3 or E4

1. Low water pressure - check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.

2. Make sure probes are clean

3. No water pressure - main water supply valves may not be working

4. Drain valve open - turn machine OFF to drain machine, then ON. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the OFF-ON procedure. If problem persists, call your local Hobart Service Office.

5. Delime machine.

Hope it will help you.

Hobart lx30 E3 error

Error Code E3 relates to a problem with the fill. Specifically that the water level has not been recognized at the middle water sensor. This can be caused by a problem with the drain system as you describe, or by low water pressure to the machine (should be 15-25psi flow), or bad wire connection to this middle sensor.
Check for proper water pressure first (should be a gauge on the machine) during the fill. Then check / repair drain as needed. These will probably eliminate the problem
