MAINTENANCE 

Draw-off Valve Maintenance:

 

To correct a leak at the draw-off valve, the source of the leak must first be determined. Leaks from around the valve stem 
are corrected by simply replacing the "0" ring. Faulty seating of the valve stem disc against the valve body seat may cause 
dripping from the valve even when the valve is tightly closed. This can often be corrected by cleaning any residue from the 
disc and seat with a piece of very fine emery cloth. 

KETTLE VENTING INSTRUCTIONS 

If the vacuum/pressure gauge reading is in the "vent air" zone, it means that air has entered the steam/water jacket, 
resulting in little or no vacuum. This reduces kettle efficiency by slowing its heating process, as the water cannot boil when 
air is present in the jacket. To remedy this situation, the following venting procedures should be followed: 

1.  With the temperature control knob set at number 6, heat the empty kettle until the vacuum / pressure gauge indicates  5-

10 psi. 

2.  Release steam and air from the steam/water jacket by loosening, one-half turn. the 7/16" chrome-plated brass venting 

valve nut (located at the rear of the kettle) for 3-6 seconds. 

3.  Tighten the vent valve nut, being careful not to overtighten. 

The kettle's steam/w ater jacket should now be free of air. At room temperature, the pressure gauge needle should rest in 
the green zone, indicating a vacuum in the kettle's jacket. To check the gauge for proper vacuum after venting, the 
temperature can be quickly reduced by filling the kettle with cold water. 

If the kettle will not hold a vacuum, test for leaks at the vent valve, the safety valve, the probe, and the vacuum/pressure 
gauge fittings. We suggest mixing a  50/50 solution of liquid detergent and water while heating the kettle to at least 5 psi 
pressure. Then, shut off power to the kettle at the fused disconnect switch. The soapy solution should be applied to the 
suspected area while the gauge shows at least 5 psi pressure. Any bubbles which appear will indicate a leak. 

WARNING: The fused disconnect switch must be switched off before removing the kettle's bottom cover, which exposes 

dangerous high voltage. 

RESERVOIR FILL PROCEDURES 

The reservoir's water level must be maintained at the proper level to submerge the heater elements. Under normal 
operating conditions, the sealed water reservoir should never require the addition of water. If the red "low water" light comes 
on . .ring use (while the kettle is in an upright position), the water level has reached a critically low level. The low water 
protection control has automatically shut off the heater elements. The following procedure must be completed before further 
use: 

NOTE: Ensure that the red "low water" light is on when the kettle is

 upright.

 On tilting kettles, it is normal for the red light to 

come on when the kettle is in a tilted position, as the elements are not submerged in water at this point. 

1 Shut off power to the kettle at the fused disconnect 

switch. 

2 Remove the bottom cover. (Tilting kettles can be tilted 

forward for easier access to the cover. Tilt the kettle back 
to the upright position once the cover has been removed). 

3 Unscrew and remove the chrome-plated brass venting 

valve nut located on the back of the kettle. 

4 Hold the safety valve open while adding distilled water 

through the vent hole. using a funnel. 

5 Place the chrome-plated brass venting valve nut into the 

water fill hole and carefully tighten. Do not over-tighten 
Replace the bottom cover. 

6 Restore power to the kettle at the fused disconnect switch. 

7 The kettle must now be vented. Refer to the "Kettle Venting 

Instructions". 

CAUTION:   Only distilled water should be used when adding 

water to a partially filled water reservoir. Local 
tap water conditions may cause kettle damage 
which is not covered under warranty.
