Cleaning & Maintenance
Commercial food steamers offer an efficient, and healthy, way to heat foods without drying them out. Regular cleaning can help prolong the life of the unit while also protecting energy efficiency.
Cleaning recommendations may vary by unit – always follow OEM specific recommendations for cleaning and maintenance.
Disconnect the electrical power before cleaning. The water being drained is hot and under pressure. Use care when cleaning the generator. Check the date on the water filter regularly.
All personnel involved in cleaning kitchen equipment are required to wear the following safety equipment: chemical splash goggles, impervious gloves.
Note: Always follow the cleaning and maintenance procedures noted in the unit’s user manual. It is essential to drain the generator daily to prevent internal scale buildup which can interfere with proper generator operation.
Note: DO NOT use any solvents or sharp instruments to clean the door gasket. NEVER apply food oils or petroleum lubricants directly to the door gasket.
If the Unit is not Producing Steam
Descaling the steamer on a regular basis will help keep the unit operating at peak performance. In some cases, the customer will be able to do this, in others it will require a technician to descale the unit properly.
Most local authorities have restrictions on the temperature of water entering the drain. Typically, the temperature must be below 140F to protect the pipes, the safety of employees and site property. Check with local authorities to learn what the local temperature restrictions may be. This will help determine if you need a drain quenching system on your unit. *
