Every employer I’ve had would eventually send me to the wild jobs that no one would touch, and the business owner cried long enough for my manager to send in the Last Hope tech. (Me )
I’ve worked on t-shirt drying lines- long tube/box electric ovens. Lots and lots of contactors and elements and fans. Unfortunetly, the guy loved my work and it was thereafter *my* customer. So he had me work on all the other crap in his shop.
I’ve advised on an electrostatic spray booth “oven”- an oven the size of 2 stacked 40-foot cargo boxes. It had been micky moused over the years so much, I refused to do anything unless I brought it back to factory specs: it had 3 giant thyristors at one point, 1 had been removed and the wires just jumped! I finally tracked down a company who had replacement heater assemblies, that would require a 2-man mobile highlift to get up near the top to service safely. And were hideously expensive.
I begged off on another giant oven of some kind. An inspector said it needed a thermostat and high limit, as there was no temperature control! Nothing available from the defunct manufacturer. I explained I *could* install an oven thermostat, and high limit that I had in the truck. But I’m not opening my company up to *that* lawsuit when the place burs down.
BTW, I read somewhere that Gold Medal heat bands and parts will fit on that vending floss machine above.
violarayna, First I would look for a local vending supplier/restaurant store. You will need them for supply’s and if you find a good one you can work with, Repairs. They can tell you what works and what doesn’t.
Check with the actual manufacturer. Per this article
“All support and service requests will be referred to the original
manufacturer of the machine. Customers requiring support and supplies
should contact the Feiloli Electronic Co. at Sales@feiloli.com.tw.”
