What type of detergent is used for a lx30c hobart undercounter dishwasher

What type of detergent is not necessarily important - anything intented for use in commercial dishwashers should be sufficient. A restaurant supply store should have something suitable for you.
Also, in case you don't already know, the LX30C is the non-booster-heater version of the LX30 (LX30H has a booster heater). Without a booster heater, you'll need to use chemical sanitizer. The LX30C should, hopefully, have a sanitizer pump installed to inject chemical sanitizer into the rinsewater stream. Most of these dishwashers also have a detergent pump to inject detergent into the wash tank and rinse aid pump for chemical rinse aid.
If present, these pumps are located in the bottom of the machine. Remove the lower front panel (2 screws) and look for the small, black plastic assemblies with 2 hoses connected to each.

Don't understand the incomprehensible door and general installation instructions for the aqua star. Just uses pictures, anywhere available that uses WORDS?

  • 1 what you'll need
    Electric drill and hole cutting bit
    Adjustable wrench
    Teflon pipe tape
    Drain pipe for dishwasher
    Dishwasher connection kit - available at your home store (should contain water supply line for dishwasher as well as necessary connectors and compression couplers).
    New dishwasher

  • 2Determine that you have access to the hot water supply line, the drainpipe and an electrical connection under the sink. Installing the dishwasher will require extending the hot water supply line to the dishwasher, connecting the dishwasher drain to the drainpipe under the sink, and plugging the dishwasher in. If your home was not plumbed in anticipation of a dishwasher, you will need to change some fittings under the sink to make these connections possible. (See below)
  • 3Read the instruction manual that comes with your new dishwasher. Installing a dishwasher is straightforward but you want to be sure you understand and are comfortable with the necessary steps.

    I have a Hobart modle LXih that leaks from near the top on right rear There is a unit that has a small hose and two larger ones

    Sounds like you're referring to the vacuum breaker. It's very easy and cheap to rebuild, if it'll come apart - sometimes they're very difficult to unscrew the top and the whole vacuum breaker must be replaced.

    Obtain a rebuild kit for the vacuum breaker from Hobart (about $5). Remove the screw from the top of the vacuum breaker and take off the chrome cap. Use a cresent wrench or channel lock pliers to remove the now accessible upper section of the vacuum breaker. Clean all scale from the brass piece you removed, particularly from the center pin and the surface at the bottom of the removed brass piece, where the threads start. This surface is the surface where the moving float's rubber seal will come up to and form a watertight seal. If you're unsure what surface I'm referring to, place the white plastic float onto the removed brass piece and take note of there the orange seal of the float contacts the brass - this is what must be clean, straight and flat to make a good seal with the new float. The center pin must be clean so that the float easily moves up and down on the pin without binding. Also clean all scale from inside the body of the vacuum breaker, although not as critical as long as the float will move freely inside the body of the vacuum breaker. Once it is cleaned, reassemble and you're done.

    P.S. it's possible you may be able to stop the leak simply by disassembling and cleaning the scale as described above, but considering the cost of the rebuild kit, you should replace the float from the rebuild kit as the float's seal shrinks over time, which may in fact be your problem instead of scale deposits, or both.

    Hi, I just received an older 1612 Hobart, and fixed the same problem.

    First i disassembled the linkage from the bottom, then i used a propane torch to heat the rods and the aluminum castings (carefully, bring the temp till it is hot to the touch) Hammering doesnt work well so i made a piece of pine appx 1x1" with a notch to use as a pry stick. put a thin piece of plywood against the casting so you dont crack the housing, as it is thin alum.

    Worked for me, take your time

    From description looks like the leak in where the shorted hose had been connected, or the pipe has another leak.
    Wrap the hose with a cloth, on the side where it goes inside the cabinet, so that you find out if the leak is coming from the inside or from the outside part.
    Ensure that it is not coondensation.
