When adjusting the door, ensure that the door lug bolts are secure. If
they are loose, apply Lock-tite 242 to the bolts and torque to 75 foot
pounds to ensure the integrity of the door, maintain a sealed system,
and prevent steam burns.
When adjusted, the door counterbalance weights should touch the floor
slightly at the same time that the door latches. There should be tension on
the door cables. The top of the door should be even with the top of the
machined surface of the headring. If the door is not properly adjusted, then
perform the following adjustments.
a. Make Door Adjustments. If the door is not fully closed, the door will not
lock. If this happens, steam could leak and burn you when the unit goes into its cycle.
Refer to figure 1-15.
When properly adjusted, the door should travel fully upward and downward
without binding, and with a minimum amount of friction and noise.
Adjust the door counterbalance weight.
Screw the eye bolts into or out of the weight.
Tighten the eye bolt lock nut.
(c) Ensure that the weight guides are adjusted for minimum friction
during the upward and downward travel of the door.
Adjust the door latch.
Remove the lower face panel for access to the door cover.
(b) Remove the door cover which is secured with four screws.
Loosen the four door latch adjustment screws.
(d) Adjust the door latch so that it springs forward evenly to contact the
latching bar when the door is in the fully raised position. The latch must not support the
weight of the door when it is latched.
Tighten the adjustment screws.
Replace the door cover and lower the face panel.
