Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply. In today’s episode I’m going to show you common leaks to  your pre-rinse assembly and how to troubleshoot and maintain them.

The most common areas for leaks on your pre-rinse would typically in a few common spots, either your hose itself, one of the two washers on either side of your handle, or somewhere around the face-plate itself. Here’s how we fix those.

The first leak you might see is actually coming from  your stainless steel hose. If it’s leaking through this, just replace the hose itself. Your next spot might be somewhere around the handle whether it be at the bottom of the handle or the top of the handle. Keep in mind in both of these spots of the handle, there’s a washer. So if it’s leaking in one of these spots, you’re most likely going to replace that washer. So careful when unscrewing this pre-rinse because the washer just sits there, and there’s that washer, so if it’s leaking on that side, that’s the washer that’s going to need to be replaced.

Same thing applies to the bottom of the handle. If it was leaking there, go ahead and unscrew the bottom of the pre-rinse, right in there, that washer will need to be replaced.

Next common place gets a little bit tricky because this next leak, these next two leaks both involve the face-plate itself. If you look at this seam right here from the top, if it’s leaking through this top seam, we’re going to want to replace this bumper itself. Unscrew this face-plate, be sure not to lose the screw, so this entire rubber bumper will need to be replaced if it’s leaking from the top of that. Just put it on, get your Phillips head screw, pretty easy right there.

If you’ve identified that your leak is not coming from the top of the bumper and is actually coming through the water jets itself, you’re most likely going to need to replace this bonnet in here. Here’s how you do so.  You’re going to remove the handle with a Phillips screwdriver, there are two Phillips screws so you’re going to need one to anchor the other on the other side. Once you remove that handle, go ahead and begin to unscrew this piece. If you notice, this valve is very similar to the valves that we had in our previous plumbing video of identifying faucet leaks. Keep in mind that your odds are that if it’s leaking out of the face of the spray nozzle itself, you’re most likely going to need to be replacing the seat washer right here, or the entire unit itself.

However, if it’s leaking from that valve stem assembly in the first place, it’s most likely this black washer. Again, inspect this whole unit and the integrity of the washers and valves in themselves and just replace the whole unit if need be.

Replace the Impeller in a Crathco Beverage Dispenser [Video]

Crathco Beverage Dispensers are pretty basic machines, and the only moving part inside the bowl is the impeller. The impeller spins to create the flow and spray of liquid – and if your machine is starting to make a strange noise, or isn’t functioning as well as it used to, chances are the impeller needs to be replaced. Luckily, it’s a quick and easy repair! Learn how in this video lesson:

Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply.  In this follow-up video I’m going to show you how to disassemble and replace the Impeller for your Crathco Beverage Dispenser.

So on the Crathco Beverage Dispenser, your real only moving part as far as mechanics inside the unit is this impeller.  So often times if you hear a funny noise from your beverage dispenser or you notice that the juice isn’t flowing consistently or the way that it used to when it was brand new, odds are you need to replace your impeller.  Here’s how.

First we’re going to take off the lid, take out your spray tube, remove your valve and handle.  You’re going to want to remove the lockdown washer, you’re going to want to remove the pump cover and then if you want you can remove the bowl depending on how tall you are or how easy your reach is.  Now we’ve exposed the impeller and this is all we’re trying to replace.  This is very easy.  It’s magnetic and it just slides right off.  Get your new impeller.  Again, it’s magnetic, just slides right back on and that’s how you replace your impeller for  a Crathco Beverage Dispenser.
