Troubleshooting Tips For Food Mixers


Most are the times when people are faced with problems yet they know not on how to handle them. With electronic equipment, none is perfect and in one way or another, they may fail to carry out their functions as expected. Under the commercial settings for instance, a commercial food sieve may fail to perform their duties as expected. Some reasons may be due to improper use or subjection to heavy loads than the equipment can handle. Under such a circumstance,reason for failure is justifiable. However, there are occasions when the equipment may have been placed correctly into their base and subjected to duties that they can handle but still they cannot deliver positive results. Such an occasion can be a nuisance and some people may end up replacing the equipment or taking them for repairs even without knowing what the problem could be.
There are several issues that may turn out when one is using a industrial sized mixer, and such an occasion calls for good troubleshooting tips, otherwise one may end up losing a lot of customers simply because the cause of the failure cannot be traced quickly. Some of the problems that a mixer may undergo include failure to start. When such a problem occurs, one should first check that it is well connected to the power outlet. If the problem persists, then it should be reset by pressing the reset button.
A times, the mixer could not start due to a problem caused by the start switch. Switch problems can easily stop the operation of any appliance. Some problems can be fixed personally, however some may require a specialist if they are too complicated. Mixers use simple switches which can be repaired in person. Whenever the mixer fails to start, the switch could also be the problem and one may do a number of things to mend the problem. The housing that is around the switch should be removed carefully after unplugging the appliance to make the back side visible. A check should be done on the terminals to see whether they are intact or detached from the switch.Then marking the position of the terminal wires is done and then disconnected. A continuity tester should then be used to find out whether the switch has developed fault. If the switch is found to be faulty, it should be replaced with a new one and terminal wires reconnected to the new switch.
The speed controls may also be a source of fault to the mixer. Under such a situation, a continuity tester becomes handy in checking the speed controls. In some situations, the contacts may need some cleaning to improve on the speed and function. In most cases, problems associated with the speed controller can be effectively solved through replacement of the controller. As for the vibratory sieves, troubleshooting is also recommended before arriving at a conclusion that the food sieve is damaged. Some problems however might require special skills, tools and equipment hence a service specialist may be sort.
