How to Reset the Hi Limit Control on an Antunes Egg Station

Most commercial cooking equipment has a hi limit to act as a safety feature. It’s meant to help power down the unit if it overheats to prevent accidents or damages to the unit. Once this is tripped though, a reboot is required to the unit. If you haven’t dealt with this before, Parts Town is here to show you how to reset the hi limit control on an Antunes egg station. So you can get back to creating delicious eggs for breakfast sandwiches and more. 

These steps apply to Antunes models such as the ES-1200 and the ES-600

Resetting the Hi Limit

Resetting an Antunes egg station hi limit is very simple.

  • Step 1. Power down the unit - Turn off the unit and let it cool down for 15-20 minutes.
  • Step 2. Identify the switch - At the back of the unit, identify which switch is designated for the front and the back. The front is labeled with an F and the rear is labeled with an R.
  • Step 3. Remove the covers - Remove the black protective caps from both switches. 
  • Step 4. Press the hi limit - Press and release the button for the corresponding hi limit that has been tripped. 
  • Step 5. Reinstall the covers - Put the caps back over the switches and turn on the unit. 

If the unit’s hi limit is continuously tripping despite being reset, contact an authorized service technician to check for a more serious issue.
