Safety

Safe Operating Environment

Safe operation requires an appropriate operating environment for both the operator and the machine. If questions regarding safety arise, contact the factory immediately.

Environmental Conditions

Ambient Temperature. Water in the machine will freeze at temperatures of 32° F or below.

Temperatures above 120° F (50° C) will result in more frequent motor overheating and, in some cases, malfunction or premature damage to solid state devices that are used in some models. Special cooling devices may be necessary.

Water pressure switches are affected by increases and decreases in temperature. Every 25° F (10° C) change in temperature will have a 1% effect on the water level.

Humidity. Relative humidity above 90% may cause the machine’s electronics or motors to malfunction or may trip the ground fault interrupter. Corrosion problems may occur on some metal components in the machine.

If the relative humidity is below 30%, belts and rubber hoses may eventually develop dry rot. This condition can result in hose leaks, which may cause safety hazards external to the machine in conjunction with adjacent electrical equipment.

6

Ventilation. The need formake-upair openings for such laundry room accessories as dryers, ironers, water heaters, etc., must be evaluated periodically. Louvers, screens, or other separating devices may reduce the available air opening significantly.

Radio Frequency Emissions. A filter is available for machines in installations where floor space is shared with equipment sensitive to radio frequency emissions.

Elevation. If the machine is to be operated at elevations of over 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) above sea level, pay special attention to water levels and electronic settings (particularly temperature) or desired results may not be achieved.

Chemicals. Keep stainless steel surfaces free of chemical residues.

DANGER

Do not place volatile or flammable fluids in any machine. Do not clean the machine with volatile or flammable fluids such as

acetone, lacquer thinners, enamel reducers, carbon tetrachloride, gasoline, benzene, naptha, etc. Doing so could result in serious personal injury and/or damage to

the machine.

SW002

Water Damage. Do not spray the machine with water. Short circuiting and serious damage may result. Repair immediately all seepage due to faulty gaskets, etc.

F232058

Machine Location

Foundation. The concrete floor must be of sufficient strength and thickness to handle the floor loads generated by the high extract speeds of the machine.

Service/Maintenance Space. Provide sufficient space to allow comfortable performance of service procedures and routine preventive maintenance.

This is especially important in connection with machines equipped with an AC inverter drive.

Consult installation instructions for specific details.

CAUTION

Replace all panels that are removed to perform service and maintenance procedures. Do not operate the machine with missing guards or with broken or missing parts. Do not bypass any

safety devices.

SW019

Input and Output Services

Water Pressure. Best performance will be realized if water is provided at a pressure of 30 – 85 psi (2.0 – 5.7 bar). Although the machine will function properly at lower pressure, increased fill times will occur. Water pressure higher than 100 psi

(6.7 bar) may result in damage to machine plumbing. Component failure(s) and personal injury could result.

Safety

Steam Heat (Optional) Pressure. Best performance will be realized if steam is provided at a pressure of 30 – 80 psi

(2.0 – 5.4 bar). Steam pressure higher than

125 psi (8.5 bar) may result in damage to steam components and may cause personal injury.

For machines equipped with optional steam heat, install piping in accordance with approved commercial steam practices. Failure to install the supplied steam filter may void the warranty.

Compressed Air. For machines requiring compressed air service, best performance will be realized if air is provided at a pressure of 80 – 100 psi (5.4 – 6.7 bar). Large capacity machines could experience door seal failure if compressed air service is interrupted.

Drainage System. Provide drain lines or troughs large enough to accommodate the total number of gallons that could be dumped if all machines on the site drained at the same time from the highest attainable level. If drain troughs are used,

they should be covered to support light foot traffic.

Power. For personal safety and for proper operation, the machine must be grounded in accordance with state and local codes.

The ground connection must be to a proven earth ground, not to conduit or

water pipes. Do not use fuses in place of the circuit breaker. An easy-accesscutoff switch should be provided.

Safety

Safe Operating Environment

(Continued)

WARNING

Ensure that a ground wire from a proven earth ground is connected to the ground lug near the input power block on this machine. Without proper grounding, personal injury from electric shock could occur and machine malfunctions may be evident.

SW008

Always disconnect power and water supplies before a service technician performs any service procedure. Where applicable, steam and/or compressed air supplies should also be disconnected before service is performed.

AC Inverter Drive

Machines equipped with the AC inverter drive require special attention with regard to the operating environment.

An especially dusty or linty environment will require more frequent cleaning of the AC inverter drive cooling fan filter and of the AC inverter drive itself.

Power line fluctuations from sources such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) can adversely affect machines equipped with the AC inverter drive. Proper suppression devices should be utilized on the incoming power to the machine to avoid problems.

8

A clean power supply free from voltage spikes and surges is absolutely essential for machines equipped with the AC inverter drive. Nonlinear inconsistencies (peaks and valleys) in the power supply can cause

the AC inverter drive to generate nuisance errors.

If voltage is above 230V for 200V installations or above 440V for 400V installations, a buckboost transformer is recommended. If voltage is above 240 or 480, a buckboost transformer is required.

Sufficient space to perform service procedures and routine preventive maintenance is especially important for machines equipped with the AC inverter drive.

Misuse

Never use this machine for any purpose other than washing fabric.

Never wash petroleum-soakedrags in the machine. This could result in an explosion.

Never wash machine parts or automotive parts in the machine. This could result in serious damage to the basket.

Never allow children to play on or around this machine. Death or serious injury can result if children become trapped in the machine. Do not leave children unattended while the machine door is open. These cautions apply to animals as well.
