    Thank you for the information. I will look into that motor. I also appreciate the quick response.

    Confused Hobart AM-14 Phase change?

    I would ask for a 277796-00001 motor & impeller assy.
    Don't forget to change your strapping on the element from 3 phase to single.
    I may be kidding myself. Looking to purchase Hobart AM-14. Current set up is all 3 phase:
    HOBART- GARBAGE DISPOSAL model FD3/125 SH, 3 Phase, 208-240/480.

    HOBART RINSE PUMP and CAST HOUSING model AM-12A..3PH 1HP

    AUTO SOAP DISPENSER-small GFS branded unit model NS1103RE

    MUST be converted to single Phase. Am I fighting a losing battle here?

    Thank-you.

    Converting the disposer and dishwasher would each require at least require a new motor, new heating elements (dish machine) maybe some new control components/wiring and a whole lotta labor charges.
    For just the motors, I did a quick look around the internet:
    • Just the motor/impeller ALONE for the AM-14 is roughly half the cost of a brand new Hobart AM-15.
    • The cost of a new motor ALONE for the disposer...costs more than a brand new disposer.


    While the AM-12A pump does appear to be a match for that machine, how do you know it runs or doesn't leak?
    As for the chemical dispensers, I thought chemical vendors supplied all that when you get the machine hooked up. Why would you buy your own? If you did, who would fix them?

    When you buy twenty+ year old used equipment, you buy its problems too. Chances are you'll identify a whole bunch of gremlins in that dish machine.

    I see no winners here.

    May be cheaper to buy a rotary phase converter and leave equipment alone?
