2.0 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

UNPACKING

Immediately after unpacking, check for possible shipping damage. If the tilting braising pan is found to be damaged, save the packaging material and contact the carrier within 15 days of delivery.

Before installing, verify that the type of gas supply (natural or propane) and electrical service agree with the specifications on the rating plate located on the left side panel as you face the front of the braising pan. If the supply and equipment requirements do not agree, contact your dealer or Blodgett

LOCATION

The equipment must be kept free and clear of combustible substances. The tilting braising pan, when installed, must have minimum clearance from combustible and noncombustible construction of 3" (76 mm) from sides and 6" (152 mm) from the rear. The tilting braising pan is intended for use on non-combustiblefloors.

The installation location must allow adequate clearances for servicing and proper operation. A minimum front clearance of 36" (914 mm) is required.

The tilting braising pan must be installed so that the flow of combustion and ventilation air will not be obstructed. Adequate clearance for air openings into the combustion chamber must be provided. Make sure there is an adequate supply of air in the room suitable for the amount of combustion gas feeding the braising pan burners.

Do not permit fans to blow directly at the tilting braising pan, and wherever possible, avoid open windows next to the tilting braising pan. Avoid wall-typefans which create air cross currents within the room.

INSTALLATION CODES AND STANDARDS

Gas installation to conform to local codes or in absence of local codes to National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 - latest edition. In Canada, installation to be in accordance with CAN/CGAB149.1 (NAT) or B149.2 (LP) installation codes and/or local codes.

1.The appliance and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at pressures in excess of ½ psig (3.45 kPa).

2.The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than ½ psig (3.45 kPa).

Electrical grounding must be provided in accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 - latest edition. In Canada installation must be in accordance with the CAN/CSA-C22.2,No.3 of the Canadian Electrical Code, part 1.

FLUE CONNECTIONS

Do not obstruct the flow of flue gases from the flue duct located on the rear of the tilting braising pan. It is recommended that the flue gases be ventilated to the outside of the building through a ventilation system installed by qualified personnel.

Information on the construction and installation of ventilating hoods may be obtained from the standard for “Vapor Removal from Cooking Equipment”, NFPA No. 96 (latest edition), available from the National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA, 02269.

WARNING: ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance is equipped with a three-prong(grounding) plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly groundedthree-prongreceptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug. (120V units only).

LEVELING AND ANCHORING

1.Set the appliance in place and level left to right and front-to-backusing spirit level.

2.Mark hole locations on floor through anchoring holes provided in flanged adjustable feet.

3.Remove appliance and drill holes in locations marked on floor and insert proper anchoring devices (not supplied).

4.Set unit back in position and re-levelleft to right and front to back.

5.Bolt and anchor appliance securely to the floor.

6.Seal bolts and flanged feet with silastic or equivalent compound.

6

GAS CONNECTIONS

All gas supply connections and any pipe joint compound used must be resistant to the action of propane gases.

The gas inlet is located under the control panel on the left-handside.

Connect gas supply to the tilting braising pan. The gas supply line must be at least the equivalent of 3/4" iron pipe with an incoming pressure of approximately 7" W.C. (Water Column) for natural gas or 11" W.C. (Water Column) for propane gas. Make sure the pipes are clean and free of obstructions, dirt and piping compound.

Codes require that a gas shutoff valve be installed in the gas line ahead of the tilting braising pan.

Natural gas and propane gas braising pans are equipped with fixed orifices and no adjustment is necessary. Gas burner manifold is set at 3.5" W.C. (Water Column) for natural gas, and 10" W.C. (Water Column) for propane gas.

WARNING: Never use an open flame to check for gas leaks. Check all connections for leaks using soapy water before use.

After piping has been checked for leaks, all piping receiving gas should be fully purged to remove air.

START-UPPROCEDURE

1.Open manual gas shutoff valve.

2.Ensure that the braising pan is in the DOWN position.

3.Turn THERMOSTAT dial to desired setting. The red TEMPERATURE LIGHT will come on. This will turn on the electronic ignition which will light the burners.

4.If the green IGNITION LIGHT does not come on after 30 seconds, turn THERMOSTAT OFF and then ON again for restart.

5.When braising pan has reached set temperature, the red TEMPERATURE LIGHT will go off and the burners will shut off. The burners will cycle on and off thereafter to maintain set temperature. The red TEMPERATURE LIGHT will be on when the burners are on and off when burners are off.

6.If gas supply is interrupted during operation, turn THERMOSTAT dial to OFF position and turn gas supply OFF. Wait 5 minutes, then repeat Steps 1 through 4 to restart.

7.Turn THERMOSTAT to OFF when braising pan is not in use.

DAILY SHUTDOWN PROCEDURE

Turn THERMOSTAT dial to OFF. Close manual gas shutoff valve.

TILTING THE BRAISING PAN

1.DO NOT try to tilt braising pan with lid down.

2.Make sure the receiving pan is in place.

3.To tilt braising pan, push and hold TILT SWITCH in the UP mode until desired pan position has been reached. The braising pan will empty when raised to the top tilt position. When the braising pan is raised 5 or more, the gas supply will be tuned off automatically. The braising pan will not operate once the pan has been tilted.

4.Food is poured through the removable strainer (Figure 2) into a food receiving pan positioned under the lip of the pouring spout (Figure 2).

5.To lower braising pan, push and hold TILT SWITCH in the DOWN mode.

NOTE: Excessive, consecutive lifts may cause the motor to overheat and activate the thermal overload causing the motor to shut down. Should this occur, a cooling off time will be necessary to reset and continue the lifting operation.
