Be sure the sprockets on the conveyor shafts are aligned properly, by checking to see if they are between the links, not on them and not bunched together. Reposition and tighten the sprockets as needed. Periodically look over the oven, to see if any switches lights or dials are damaged or broken. Let's review our four times a year jobs. We checked sprockets, mechanical dials, switches, and controls.
Watch this video to learn the proper maintenance instructions that you should perform for every three months of use. This will help keep your oven in a great condition!
Now let's talk about what to do if your Impinger oven seems to be malfunctioning. Before you make a service call, there are a few things you should check out. You might be able to solve the problem yourself or at least narrow it down. We'll look at troubleshooting in terms of the symptom you've observed and what might be causing it.
If you go to turn on the oven at the beginning of the work day and it did not respond by heating up. Always suspect the easy stuff first. Is the oven plugged in tightly? Check the temperature indicator light, does it show that the oven is heating? If not, see if the temperature control knob is set to the right temperature. You may then need to hit the high temperature reset button. If the thermostat is set right, see if the main fan is working by checking for air movement. If there's no air movement, the fan isn't working, so check the main circuit breaker and the main fan fuses on the oven. If you find a bad fuse, replace it. If the fuse is okay, there's nothing more that you can do your authorized Lincoln service agent must be contacted.
Burnt products result from too high of a temperature, too long of cooking time, or improperly installed columnating plates or air return panels. First see if all the fingers are installed properly and the columnating panel holes line up with the holes in the finger covers. Then check the temperature control knob. If the display shows the temperature is set properly, but the products are overcooked the oven could be out of calibration. If the conveyor control knob shows that it's set properly, time it against a stop watch. Start the stop watch when the leading edge of the pan enters the oven. Stop the watch when the leading edge exits the oven. If the time or temperature need recalibrate your authorized Lincoln service agency must be contacted. In the meantime, you can try and compensate by decreasing temperature or increasing the conveyor speed.
Undercooked products could result from several things. First be sure you're not placing the food product too far into the oven cavity. The leading edge should be just at the conveyor opening and don't pull that product out of the oven too soon. Next if the temperature control knob is set properly but the products are undercooked the oven could be out of calibration. If the conveyor control knob shows that it's set properly, time it against a stop watch using the leading edge in to leading edge out method we used earlier. Again if time or temperature needs calibration, your authorized Lincoln service representative should be contacted. And of course you can compensate by decreasing the belt speed or increasing the temperature until help arrives. If time and temperature are not your problem, it could be the columnating plates or air return panels weren't installed properly. If you're still having a problem, see if the main fan is working by checking for air movement. If the fan isn't running, check the main circuit breaker and the main fan fuses. If you do all this and the oven is still not performing properly, it's time to call your authorized Lincoln service agency.
Another situation you might run into is a conveyor belt that won't move. First check to see the belt speed control was not accidentally turned all the way down. Check the drive coupling to ensure it's connected properly to the motor shaft and that the drive pan is fully seated in the notch. With the extended conveyor make sure the belting is tight against the drive sprockets. You may then need to press the black conveyor reset button. Next check your main circuit breakers and fuses. If the conveyor stopped when the oven was hot, it could be overheating. Check and clean the ventilation louvers and cooling fan covers if needed. It could also be a mechanical malfunction. With the circuit breaker off, so the conveyor belt won't start accidentally disconnect the coupling. Then gently push and pull the conveyor to see that it moves freely. If it doesn't, look for some obstruction or binding. If the conveyor moves freely, then turn the circuit breaker back on, turn the oven on, and check to see if the motor shaft is rotating. If the motor shaft won't turn, you have to call your authorized Lincoln service agency.
Troubleshooting with the 1300 series Impinger ovens from Lincoln. This video offers an overview of diagnostic messages as well as what you can do to ascertain exactly what your oven needs done!
Thorough cleaning of the oven is a weekly task. Weekly cleaning includes fingers, conveyor and baffles, and the air intake vents. This process should take about an hour per oven. You'll need an oven non-caustic degreaser, mild solutions soapy water, three to five gallon bucket of warm rinse water, an oven brush, four or five dry towels, and a three-compartment sink with faucets – a spray hose would also be helpful. You'll need a long sleeve cotton shirt, a pair of goggles, and rubber gloves. With your goggle and gloves on, you can start your weekly cleaning. The first weekly cleaning task is removing and cleaning the conveyor and end baffles. Remove the end baffles by turning the thumb screws counter clockwise. Spray them with the non-caustic degreaser and allow them to sit while cleaning the conveyor. To remove the conveyor on an Impinger 1300 Series countertop oven, remove the external crumb trays, extended conveyor only and take-off shelves, if applicable. Hold the spring loaded coupling and pull it away from the conveyor, then lift the conveyor so the locking bar is clear. If the conveyor won't release easily, lift the opposite end and push.
We'll clean the conveyor over a three-compartment sink. Using a three-compartment sink, we're going to start using our non-caustic degreaser. Spray the entire conveyor assembly with non-caustic degreaser; it'll take about 20 minutes for the grease to dissolve. Then rinse and allow to dry. While you're waiting for the degreaser to soak, you can remove and clean the fingers, the end panels can be removed by turning the quarter-turn fasteners and lifting panels from the retaining tabs. Spray the end panels with non-caustic degreaser; it'll take about 20 minutes for the grease to dissolve.
Remove the top fingers first by lifting up with the front hanger and pushing toward the back of the oven. Then drop the finger down toward the center of the oven and swing the finger housing out of the oven cavity. Next, reach in the oven cavity and remove the top air return baffle. Remove the bottom fingers next by also lifting up from the front hanger and pushing towards the back for the oven. Then lift the finger up towards the center of the oven and swing the finger housing out of the oven cavity.
Next reach in the oven cavity and remove the button air return baffles. Now disassemble the finger housing for cleaning, slide the finger covering from the housing, lift out the inner columnating panel, spray the finger covers with non-caustic degreaser and allow to sit for 20 minutes. Wash the end panels, finger housing, columnating panels, and air return baffles in warm, soapy water in a three-compartment sink. Rinse off all the parts with clear water until they are thoroughly clean and just stand the parts up to air dry.
While you're waiting for the fingers, air return baffle, and conveyor to dry, you can clean the inside of the Impinger oven. Now that the fingers are out, you'll be able to clean more thoroughly. Use a non-caustic degreaser, do not use a caustic oven cleaning or degreaser on the oven interior. Don't forget to use the outside too. Non-caustic degreaser can be used for spot application on the outside of the oven, if needed. Rinse with clean water, inside and outside, when finished. Clean all the vents and louvers that are on the right hand and rear of the oven.
The parts you washed should be dry by now, so let's reinstall the air return baffles and put the fingers back together. Reinstall the top and bottom air return baffles in the proper locations with the outside metal lib facing up nest the columnating plates securely inside the finger housing with the small notch towards the narrow end of the finger housing. Slide the cover over the finger. Now we can reinstall the fingers. Make sure the top finger housings are fully seated around the plenum flanges and secured on the front on the hanger. The bottom finger housing should be a quarter of an inch away from the front wall of the oven. Make sure the holes in the columnating plates align with the holes in the finger covers. The air jet holes must point towards the conveyor.
Reinstall the end panels by lowering on to the retaining clips. Push the panels tight against the oven cavity and turn the quarter fasteners. When the conveyor is dry, hold the end with the drive connections up slightly and reinsert the conveyor in the oven. Now connect the drive sprocket, reposition the end baffles over each oven cavity opening. Next slide the crumb pans into the rails under the conveyor, for extended conveyors only. And install the optional conveyor take-off shelf. The Impinger 1300 Series countertop oven conveyor should not in most cases need any adjustment, but if the belt becomes loose refer to your installation and operating instructions manual or call your service agency to adjust it.
Let's review our weekly cleaning jobs. We disassembled and cleaned the conveyor belt and baffles and panels and the fingers. Then we cleaned both the inside and outside of the oven, including the air intake vents and louvers. And then reinstall end panels and baffles, fingers, and conveyor belt.
The weekly cleaning procedure for 1300 series Impinger ovens from Lincoln is reviewed. Follow these guidelines to keep the exterior and interior clean.
Follow this procedure for operating your Lincoln Impinger ovens. To start the oven, push the on switch to on. Next check to ensure the oven dial positions are set for the correct temperature. The indicator light should come on. Check to ensure the conveyor belts are operating at the correct speed. If not, adjust the belt speed, by turning the speed control dial until the speed you wish is showing on the dial scale display. Allow 30 minutes for the oven to preheat. If necessary, after the preheat adjust the oven temperatures and conveyor to the final desired settings. To shut down the Impinger, push the on switch to the off position. Caution: oven walls and parts are still very warm. Maintaining your Impinger oven involves a simple daily routine cleaning, a thorough weekly cleaning, and a few special projects every month.
The basic operations of the 1300 series ovens from Lincoln are covered in this video, from the basic functions on the control panel to standard operating procedures.
Daily cleaning is a simple process. First using clean water and a non-caustic degreaser wipe the outside surfaces with the grain, using a clean, soft cloth. Then rinse with clean, warm water. Polish with a stainless steel cleaner. Always wipe with the grain using a soft cloth. The next daily job is to clean the conveyor belt. Brush it with a special wire brush, like the Lincoln #369217. Next remove the conveyor crumb pans. Crumb pans are on the extended conveyor only and the take-off shelves or end stops. Wash with oven non-caustic degreaser and rinse with clean water. Make sure the oven is at least six inches away from walls and combustible materials. Let's review the daily cleaning list. We cleaned and rinsed the exterior. Then we cleaned the conveyor belt with a wire brush. Then the conveyor crumb pans and take-off shelves or end stops and checked the area for combustible materials.
