WHAT SIZE DISHWASHER DO YOU NEED?

To help determine what size dishwashing machine you will need, you must first determine how many racks of dishes per hour you will generate. Here's an equation that may help. # of pieces per person X # of persons per hour + 20 pieces per rack = racks per hour required. TEMPERATURE REQUIREMENTS: Nationwide, health inspectors require that dishmachine rinse temperatures be verified to reach between 170°F-212°F, the range sure to kill bacteria. THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING DISWASHER RACKS: * What size are your glasses? * Do you plan on using the racks for storage also? Note: It is very important to consider these points. Purchasing improper dishwashing racks can result in more breakage. Let us at Jeans Restaurant Supply help you select the proper size dishmachine and racks for your business needs!

MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS!

"Get onboard with one of our maintenance agreements today and help extend the life of your equipment!" One of the most important pieces of equipment in a restaurant is the ice machine. And what I see consistently is a large percentage of restauranteurs seem to neglect upkeep on them, i.e., not replacing filters on a 6 month schedule, not getting a periodic cleaning of the machine inner components. This leads to bacteria and algae in the ice, poor ice production, and even costly breakdowns and downtime. A maintenance agreement which includes every six months cleaning and filter replacement with Jeans Restaurant Supply by our factory authorized technicians and installers will save in the long run on costly downtime, not to mention the health issues with a dirty and contaminated icemaker. Again, we at Jeans Restaurant Supply don't just offer our services, we offer "SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR SUCCESS!" Because "Our customers success is directly related to our success!" Call toll free 866-618-4999 today to schedule a preliminary screening checkup and followup maintenance agreement program! [...]

TECHTIME WITH OUR SERVICE TECHNICIAN!

Tech was dispatched on a Scotsman ice machine not making much ice. As he watched a cycle he noticed in the harvest cycle it was taking too long for the cubes to drop. Further inspection noted that the harvest assist plunger was not pushing in to assist the ice. Unit was getting voltage during the harvest cycle so he replaced the bad harvest assist assembly and re-tested. All good![...]

Tech was dispatched on a Hoshizaki ice machine that one of our other techs had just cleaned about 4 days prior and it quit making ice. When the tech arrived he started the machine and and started observing all the water issue problems first and noticed that after harvest and purge the machine started the freeze cycle but at the same time the drain water kept flowing out the drain not allowing the water trough to fill up. He turned off the machine so he could remove and inspect the drain valve. He then disassembled the valve and noticed a couple of large calcium/mineral chunks lodged in the valve plunger keeping the valve open. I suppose after cleaning the other day a little bit of residual minerals didn't get flushed out of the system good causing this problem. Once he cleaned out the valve and reinstalled he watched a good cycle making ice after that.[...]

Tech was dispatched out to a nearby hotel on a Toastmaster conveyor toaster not heating. Initial inspection found the power switch all smoked and fried. He replaced the switch and it worked fine but went down again about three weeks later. After going back this time he found what was believed to be the root cause of the initial problem. The power switch was burnt up again but he also noticed this time there was some frail partially burnt wiring on the infinite heat switch and noticed it arcing when it was variable cycling. This time he replaced both the infinite switch and power switch and repaired all the burnt and frail wiring on the infinite switch. Seems to be working ok now and its been a little while since he did the second repair so I believe we're out of the woods now![...]

Tech went out on a beveragaire upright freezer that wan't freezing properly. Intial inspection revealed the evaporator coil all froze over. Doors close and seal fine and evaporator motor running fine. After placing the electronic control into a defrost motor he discovered that the 120 volt output was present heading out of the control towards the defrost heaters. After dropping the evaporator panel and checing the heater it was not hot and was not receiving 120volts. Further inspection found the heater high temp. safety cut-out switch ohmed open and was bad. Replaced high temp. safety switched, placed unit into defrost mode and heaters heated up just fine. Put unit back together and watched the system pull down to -2°f before shutting off. All good![...]

Customer brought in a Grindmaster 3311 margarita machine to our shop stating that it just won't freeze. Upon initial inspection the tech plugged in the unit and noticed that fan would run but the compressor wouldn't turn on. Upon further testing it was found that the compressor runs off a delay timer that gets coil voltage from a 24 volt stepdown transformer. The transformer was receiving 120volts but there was no 24volt secondary coming out of it. Turns out the primary windings of the transformer was open. Replaced transformer and all worked good. Margarita is served!!![...]

Our tech got called out on a brand new just a few days old True kegerator 1 keg cooler that the customer was complaining that the drip tray where the beer dispenses was backing up with spillover beer. Upon inspection our tech tried blowing nitrogen threw the drain to see if it would clear a cloggage and found that the nitrogen wasn't even flowing all the way from one end to the other. Upon talking with the True technical service people it was determined that a 90 degree elbow on the drain tube was probably broken in manufacturing. The 90 degree fitting is foamed into the walls of the unit near the bottom of the cabinet where it is suppose to drain out. Since its foamed in the wall and a non-repairable option True opted to see if the customer would accept us running an exterior drain hose from the bottom of the drain trough and route the hose down inside the kegerator to a pan that the customer could place inside the unit and periodically drain it since it wasn't going to a floor drain the way it was designed anyway. The customer accepted the repair so we made that warranty approved modification to the unit per True.[...]

Had one of our project managers call me from a school we just installed a walk-in combo unit at and he was at the job site with the installers that were installing more equipment there and he said the walk-in cooler kept beeping outside on the American panel system 100 controller. He said it was beeping and read "AL-32". That means the low temperature alarm warning beep was set for 32°f. And that's right about where the control cut off the unit at. It would cycle between 32° and 38°f, therefore maintaining a perfect 35°f average box temperature. So, I simply walked him through the procedure for going into the parameters of the low temp alarm and changing the setting from 32°f to 30°f so the alarm would stop going off right where the unit was trying to cycle off at. Now under normal conditions the low alarm won't sound unless the box reaches 30°f. So with it cycling at 32°f everything should be fine now. Problem solved![...]

Tech got dispatched to a local restaurant with a walk-in cooler not cooling properly (50°f). Upon arrival he noticed that the evaporator was froze up. No sign of door sealing problems of any kind. After deicing the evaporator the unit cooled down to temperature as it should but he noticed the outside condensing unit sounding like it was going into pumpdown but never cutting off. After installing his gauges he noticed the unit was pumping down to about 8 lbs suction but staying right there. Beings the low pressure control is a preset type control and its setting is 6 lbs it would never cut off in pumpdown. He called for my help and I had him shut off the high side brass cut-off valve to see if the comp[ressor would pump into a vacuum and again it would pump down to about 8 lbs and that's as far as it could go. Therefore, we decided that the compressor had become slightly inefficient so we gave the customer options. Either the inefficient compressor gets replaced or we install a new low pressure control that has a little bit higher rating and try to extend the life of the compressor. They elected to go the less expensive route and keep that compressor going a while longer since it is just slightly inefficient. Therefore, the tech changed the pressure control to one that would cut-out at 20 lbs, which is still just fine for a walk-in cooler pumpdown operation. Unit is working fine now![...]
