Cleaning Instructions for Globe Slicers
Below are a cleaning instructions for 3000, 4000, C and GC series models:
Step 1. Prepare the Slicer
Start by shutting off the slicer and turning the slice thickness dial clockwise past “0” until it stops. This allows the table to cover the knife edge. Then, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
Step 2. Remove the Food Chute
Loosen the food chute by releasing the knob that fastens the chute to the chute arm. Once the knob is released, carefully lift the chute off the chute arm. On C9/10/12 models, disassemble the chute by using the knob on the back of the chute to unfasten it into three separate pieces.
Step 3. Remove the Knife Cover
Make sure to wear safety gloves during this procedure. Lift the knife sharpener cover. While, holding the knobs on the knife cover, pull up on the top spring-loaded knob and lift upward to remove the cover. Once it’s removed, the slicer won’t be able to start.
On C9/10/12 models, remove the sharpener by loosening the screw on the sharpener’s neck. Then, lift the sharpener off and away from the unit. Once the sharpener is off, remove the cover by rotating the release knob counterclockwise until the cover releases. Make sure to carefully hold the edge of the knife cover and lift upward to remove it. After the cover is off, remove the slicer deflector by loosening the screw knobs.
Step 4. Clean the Cover & Dissembled Parts
Clean the cover and disassembled parts in a sink with warm water. Apply mild detergent and scrub using a soft cloth. Use the detergent’s instruction to dilute properly. For stuck-on residue, scrub using a nylon brush. Once the parts are dry, soak them in warm water and sanitizer for a couple of minutes. Follow the sanitizer’s instruction for proper dilution. Allow the parts to dry again before reassembling.
Step 5. Clean the Knife Ring Guard
Do not remove or disassemble the knife ring guard. Soak a clean, soft cloth in mild detergent and warm water. Use the detergent’s instruction to dilute properly. Ring the cloth out to remove excess water and carefully insert it between the knife and knife ring guard. With the cloth inserted, work it along the backside of the knife and repeat the procedure if necessary. If there is a lot of residue, scrub with a nylon brush in lieu of a cloth.
Step 6. Clean the Knife Blade
Rinse the soft cloth used to wash the ring guard. Add more detergent if necessary, and ring it out to remove excess water. Then, safely wash the top and bottom of the knife blade by wiping from the center outward. Rinse using as separate wet cloth, following the same wiping procedure. Make sure to prevent moisture from getting into the knife hub.
Step 7. Reassemble the Knife Cover
Align the knobs at the bottom of the knife ring guard with the notches at the bottom of the knife cover. You’ll notice there is a hole at the top right of the cover that fits over the locator pin at the top of the knife ring guard.
Step 8. Clean the Slicer Table
Start by lowering the knife sharpener cover. Then, soak a clean cloth in a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Use the detergent’s instruction to dilute properly. Once you ring out the rag of excess water, wipe off the slicer table. When wiping, make sure to start at the knife and pull towards you. Do not wipe towards the knife.
Step 9. Wipe Down the Slicer
Once all the parts are dry, use a clean cloth and sanitizer to wipe down the entire slicer. Follow the sanitizer’s instruction for proper dilution and application.
Step 10. Reassemble Remaining Parts
Follow the reassembly procedure in the operation manual to make sure the parts are properly reinstalled on the slicer.
