Having problems with your Hobart AM14-253 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

This dishwasher is older than most living people in this business. It works great except it is a 208 three phase unit. It is in St.Peter's church in New York Mills, MN. We bought it used during our remodel project in 1994 for a price of $800.00. That was our mistake. We had a converter installed to accomadate the 3 phase power supply. So we have this converter running 24 hours a day using up electricity and we use the dishwasher four times per year. I am wondering if we could replace the motor o


Answers :

This unit is a dinosaur. The 3-phase converter had to cost twice as much as the unit. Best solution - turn the power off to the 3 phase converter when not in use.

Better best solution - find a newer unit that will be repairable should it need service. Virtually nothing is available for the AM9 series of dishwashers.

Suggestion - talk to a commercial dishwasher chemical provider that leases dishwashers. They may have a surplus unit that they picked up from a customer (that they leased a new machine to) that they may be willing to donate.
Your AM9 is too old to get new parts from Hobart.
\015\012Why does the inverter need to run when the machine is not in use? There must be a breaker to turn it off.
\015\012 If you decide to replace it, any AM series will fit your tables. Don't buy anything older than AM14.

I have used my Bosch Dishwasher; [SGS6302 GB/07] [FD 7866 680062] for many years, with faultless performance. Last week, after loading it with Dinner plates, etc. I turned it ON and it declined to start, merely presenting me with an "F" on the display screen. Could find no solution in the (useless) instruction manual. So I guessed that "F" means;- a) Filter (blocked)? b) Fault condition. I've cleaned the filters, checked the power supply, water supply and drain hoses, but nothing seems to

Frigidaire Dishwasher Hi, I have installed a new model GLD2250RDC0 Frigidaire dishwasher and it will not start. Power and water supply is connected. When I push the cycle button for Normal the light comes on but when I push Start nothing happens except the "hi-temp wash" and "no heat dry" lights flash. I assume this is some kind of troubleshooting code but the manual does not cover this and I am in Honduras so service is non existent. Any ideas? By the way, I was a builder in the States for 25 y

My Danby DDW1899 W was installed and ran through 3-4 loads fine, then at the end of one washing the power just went off. The circuit may have been under a load when this happened but the circuit breaker did not trip. Could this be a dishwasher fuse? If so, where is it and how to replace?

I have a Fisher & Paykel 913T soft touch dishwasher. On all types of washes when the wash cycle starts there is no 230 volts on the element & after 5 minutes the wash cycle finishes & then goes onto to the next cycle. None of the wash or rinse cycles heat the water but on the dry cycle their is 230 volts onto the element & dries the dishes OK. Is my problem the power supply PCB or could it be the Controller PCB?

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC14 dishwasher. The dishwasher is in a new home I just purchased. I tried to run the dishwasher on a normal cycle. However, when I push POWER and NORMAL CYCLE it makes a buzzing noise...and that's it. I opened the dishwasher and on the base of the dishwasher there was a screen that could be removed. I noticed that there was still some anti-freeze fluid in there (because the house was winterized). Could there be a simple solution to this problem?

My 1 yr old GE dishwasher model # GLD4900P00WW lost power during the drying cycle & blew the rest of the circuit. An electrician has fixed the rest of the circuit & rewired the dishwasher to it's own switch in the breaker box. The dishwasher still has no power. Is there a fuse somewhere in the dishwasher that could've blown? If so, how do I locate it?
