    What do you mean by dropping?

    What do you mean by spigot? There's no spigot that I'm aware of.

    Here's a parts manual to help identify what you're talking about:

    Perhaps you're referring to the vacuum breaker?

    Not to hijack but was wondering if ECtofix had a service manual for the LXe ?

    No. I wished I had one.

    The way I understand it is that Hobart's service manuals are now all locked up in their own "cloud". Even a Hobart tech (which I am not) can't share them. They're only accessible through Hobart-issued secure computers. Therefore it's impossible for the manuals to be printed or shared by Hobart techs.

    Whatever very few manuals that I DO have are for older equipment - some of which were shared by someone who had pirated them at some point. Service manuals for dish machines are the ones I DON'T have. I snagged some of what I have from Hobart's Aussie website several years ago before they locked it down.

    Well I gave ya a shot at the title. Thanks anyways . I've got at least 3 of those machines given to me because customers hate them. Hobart wants your first born to show up at the door. Only to find out their techs aren't all that. All of them leak at the door for starters.

    We have allot of Hobart dish machines where I work. All sizes. Flight machines, conveyor, utensil, door-type...and down to under-counter ones.

    Awhile back, we had one of their techs out for warranty service. He told me that Hobart has taken to modelling our U.S. machines after the ones they sell abroad...which were different from ours. He said those machines are crap and we're unfortunately getting them now.

    We don't have the LXe machines. We have the older LXi ones. I have no service manual for those either.
