Installation, Operation, and Maintenance of AM3 DISHWASHERS


SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

GENERAL
The AM3 dishwashers are semi-automatic rack-type machines. Three doors open at the same time to allow the rack to be pushed in or out. After filling, an automatic wash and rinse cycle begins when the door is lowered. Dish table heights may be specified at time of order for 800mm (31.5 inches) or 860mm (33.875 inches). Electric booster heat options (7kW or 14kW) include an open vented booster tank supplied with a solenoid valve, line strainer, rinse pump and type A air gap. Low water protection is provided in the boosters. No booster versions are also available for connection to external heating.

INSTALLATION
Before installing, check the electrical service to be sure it agrees with the electrical specifications on the data plate located on the right side of machines. Immediately after unpacking, check for possible shipping damage. If the dishwasher is found to be damaged, save the packaging material and contact the carrier or supplier within 15 days of delivery. LOCATION Place the dishwasher in its operating location. Before finalizing the location, make sure that consideration has been given for the electrical conduit, water supply, drain connection, gas booster location (if applicable), tabling, chemical feeder replenishment (if applicable), daily cleaning, maintenance and adequate clearance for opening the doors (Fig. 1).

The dishwasher must be level before any connections are made. Turn the leveling feet as required to level the machine and adjust to the desired height. Dish table should be turned down and fitted into the dishwasher (Fig.2). Use a suitable sealer between table and tank lip to prevent leakage. A hood or vent may be required in order to meet local codes. The ventilation volume should be more than 2.8m3/min in case of using hood or vent (supplied by others).

CHECK ROTATION (Three-Phase Machines Only) Three phase motors must rotate in the direction of the arrow on the pump housing (counterclockwise). If the rotation is incorrect, DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY and interchange any two of the incoming power supply leads. Re-energize the dishwasher and verify correct rotation. Warning: The rotation of motors must be checked again before the first operation. In-correct rotation could cause improperly operation of dishwasher and damage of wash pump even in short period of time. Power Supply for Detergent Dispenser and/or Rinse/Sanitizer Feeder (by others) Terminals DPS1 and DPS2 in the control box allow connection of a detergent dispenser (by others). RPS1 and RPS2 terminals allow connection of a rinse/sanitizer feeder (by others) with maximum current of 3 Amps (Fig. 4). DPS1-DPS2 is powered during the wash cycle; RPS1-RPS2 is powered during the rinse cycle. Refer to the electrical diagram on the inside of side panel. Note 1: All connecting wires must accommodate the movement of the control box as it slides out for service. Note 2 wires must be 600 volts insulation cable; do not use normal low voltage cable. All

Note: In case of line dynamic pressure is less than 0.3kg/cm2a booster-pump must be installed (by others); in case of line static pressure is more than 5kg/cm2a pressure reducer must be installed (by others).

DRAIN Connect the 11/4 NPT drain connector under the wash tank to a suitable drain. If a grease trap is required by code, it should have a minimum flow capacity of 95.5 liters per minute (21 gallons per minute).

RINSE AGENT CONNECTION Remove front panel to locate rinse agent connection points. Two connecting points for rinse agent are provided. One is located at the upper right side of booster and allows rinse agent to inject into the booster tank. Another is located under the booster tank near the rinse pump outlet and allows rinse agent to inject into the rinse pipe. Select a suitable point according to the chemical requirement. Use a spanner to loosen the plug and connect rinse agent pipe with a suitable sealing material (Fig. 5).

PREPARATION
Place the strainer basket in its proper location in the corner of the wash tank and insert the stand drain pipe (Fig. 6) Close the doors. Turn the power switch on, the machine will fill automatically. Open the door and make sure the wash tank is full of water after fill cycle is complete. Scatter the initial amount of detergent on the strainer basket. Replenish as needed. If an automatic detergent dispenser has been installed, follow suppliers instruction. Close the door and the wash and rinse cycle will begin automatically. Wait for the wash and rinse tank thermometer to reach the proper temperature.

DISHWASHING
Scrape the dishes to remove large particles of food and debris. Select suitable 60 or 90 second wash cycle according to dish size and food soil.

Fig. 7

Stack the dishes in a rack. Do not stack dishes one on top of another as water must have free access to all sides of every dish. Stand plates and dishes up edgewise in a peg-type rack. Cups, glasses and bowls should be inverted in an open-type or compartment type rack (Fig. 7). Silverware and other small pieces may be scattered loosely over the bottom of a flat bottom rack or in a basket type rack. After filling a rack, open the doors, slide the rack into the dishwasher, and close the doors. The wash and rinse cycle will begin when the doors are closed. When the wash and rinse cycle is finished, open the doors and remove the rack of clean dishes. Continue by sliding in the next rack of dishes and close the doors. If you want to add a dish after the wash cycle has started, before opening the doors, turn off the power switch and wait 10 seconds to allow the wash arm to stop rotation to avoid hot water splashing out on the operators.

CLEANING
It is recommended that the machine be thoroughly cleaned at the end of each working shift or at least daily. The procedures of machine cleaning as follow: 1 Turn of the power switch 2 Open the doors 3 Clean off the dish table into the dishwasher 4 Drain the machine by pulling out the drain stand pipe 5 Remove and empty the strainer basket and pump intake screen. Wash and rinse them thoroughly. 6 Thoroughly clean and flush the dishwasher interior 7 Replace intake screen and strainer basket 8 Leave the doors open to allow the interior to dry 9 Check the wash and rinse arms rotate freely and are free of any obstructions 10 Check rinse nozzles to make sure they are free of any lime or obstruction

MAINTENANCE
WARNING: DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY AND PLACE A TAG AT THE DISCONNECT SWITCH INDICATING THAT THE CIRCUIT IS BEING WORKED ON BEFORE BEGINNING ANY MAINTENANCE PRECEDURE.

WASHARMS
Upper and lower wash and rinse arms should turn freely and continue turning for a few seconds after being whirled by hand. To check arms, DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY, rotate arms, and remove any obstructions causing improper operation. If the strainer basket or pump intake screen is not properly in place, obstructions (such as food particles or bones) may clog the wash arm nozzles. The wash arms are easily removed for cleaning. To remove the wash and rinse arms, unscrew the knurled disk between the rinse and wash arms and take them out (Fig. 8).

Water in booster is below high level sensor; please examine line strainer and solenoid valve. Wash pump rotating in wrong direction. Insufficient wash water due to drain obstruction preventing proper drain closing. Insufficient water circulation due to obstruction at pump intake screen. Disconnect power supply, drain wash tank and check. Incorrect water temperature. Insufficient warm-up time. Check circuit breaker, thermostat and heater. Incorrect detergent dispensing. Contact your detergent representative. Excessive mineral deposits through wash and rinse system. Deliming may be necessary. Improperly loaded racks. Incorrect rinse water temperature. Loss of water pressure due to pump obstruction. Excessively hardness of water. Incorrect detergent for water type. Incorrect rinse additive for water type. Incorrect concentration of detergent, rinse additive and/or sanitizer. Dirty line strainer causing reduced water flow. Turn off water supply, disconnect water supply pipe and solenoid valve, withdraw and clean screen. Reassemble. Foreign material preventing proper valve operation.
