    The model number number you gave doesn’t cross to anything.  Maybe that’s the serial number?  Not helpful in identifying your unit.  For that matter, I’m not familiar with Carter-Hoffmann making anything called a “fermenter”.

     

    Perhaps you could post a picture of the front of the unit and a picture of the data sticker.

    Carter Hoffman generally start there model numbers with two or three  letters.  And they make a lot or transport cabinets and holding ovens.  As well as dish and pan racks, servers, convection ovens, coolers, etc.  They make a lot for transportation industry.

    Me thinks that complications of our language barrier might have partgio looking for his “fermenter” (for beer maybe?) under the wrong manufacturer’s name.

    Those numbers don’t cross to anything either.

     

    Doesn’t matter.  You were able to get your owner’s manual.  In my experience, Carter-Hoffmann doesn’t publish any separate service manuals for their equipment.  In other words, the owner’s manual IS the service manual.

    So what are you fermenting?  I can help you change from the digital control to an analog control, perhaps with a mechanical timer, if needed

    Why you asking me, Steve?  I didn’t ask the question.  I’m not fermenting anything.

     

    However, I DO so happen to be presently consuming a nice, alcoholic FERMENTED beverage.

     

    If you read the thread though, you’d see that his term – “fermenter” – was likely a mis-translation for a proofer, warmer…or something of that sort, due to our language barrier.  After all, he IS in Maracaibo, Venezuela.

     

    Regarding your response in offering to change it from the digital control to an analog control, perhaps with a mechanical timer?  W-E-L-L, that’s just not an acceptable maintenance practice on commercial food equipment.

     

    Do what you want though, but you WILL own its problems if you happen to do that.  Its future problems and any ensuing legal ramifications.

     

    However, if you choose to go ahead and travel to Venezuela to fulfill your offer, get back with us on the quality of fermented beverages they have there.
