Important: Hopper Lid Latches must be checked periodically and kept tight, in order to seal the top and prevent burn-back.
The latches installed on these units are designed to pull the hopper lid tight against this seal. Over the course of operation as these seals "wear in" and compress, the tension of the latches should be tested periodically, and adjusted if necessary. To adjust the lid latches, the following tools will be needed: two ½” open-ended wrenches. In order to adjust the latch, first open the hopper lid and then lock the latch in its closed position. Then take the ½” wrench and loosen the nut closest to the latch. This nut is then adjusted closer to the lid itself to tighten the latch. After tightening the latches, test the latches for proper tension by locking the lid down and lifting each front corner of the lid. The lid should be firmly held down by the latches. Repeat the same procedure if the latch is still not tight enough. Hopper lid should be seated firmly against the gasket with no detectable movement up or down. Check by pushing down and pulling up on lid.
