Hoshizaki KM151MAH inlet rubber tee exploding
I have a Hoshizaki KM151 at a hotel we service. The engineer tells me the rubber tee directly after the inlet water valve keeps bursting. I've never seen this happen before. He says its the third tee he's installed. It will run for several cycles, then the tee will burst.
I checked all the rubber hoses/distribution tubes for obvious restrictions... Nothing found.
My only theory is that after several harvests when the machine calls for a pump out, the check valve is restricted and the pump out water backs up into the distribution area and swells and bursts the tee.
Has anyone ever dealt with this? Any input would be great. Thanks.
