    We just bought a Hobart combi oven and we are picking it up Monday. Can we lay it down with out any problems?

    being  It has already been put in service, all the packaging has been removed. I would not recommend laying it down. Make sure to drain it, or you may get water where you don’t want it

    Not knowing if you have ever dealt with a combi before, I have to ask.  Is this a Baxter or Hobart..  How big?  You should contact your Hobart service company before moving it. They are a complicated machine that will require a service tech to set it up and calibrate it. Sometimes they may make sugestions before the move that will save you a bit of money at the set up.

    It is a Hobart HGC 40-1 combi convection oven and it is recommended to not lay it down. Thank you for your replies. My next challenge is it is natural gas and we need to convert to propane. Finding a conversion kits has been unsuccessful…

    Then it is not a Combi.  Combi’s have a steam generator for high moisture cooking. A stainless interior, cooling and condensing drain.  All this requires a lot of control engineering.
