Changing the Direction of the Conveyor on a Star Ultra Max Conveyor Oven
The following directions for the Ultra Max Conveyor Oven are courtesy of our friends at Star Manufacturing. These are intended for authorized service technicians.
There are two different motors available on these units. The Brothers, gray, round motor you will need to have the polarity changed on the back of the motor to reverse the direction (see below). The black square motor, the direction is changed in the programming, see instructions at bottom of document. For both of them, once the motor direction is changed, the belt direction also needs to be changed. The tech will have to physically remove the conveyor and flip it so the loops are facing the opposite direction from when they started.
*If two wires on the motor do not have 1/4″ spade connectors, the belt direction is done through the controller*
*Is there a single wire in the 5 position Molex connector (see below)? If so, the direction of this one is done through the controller*
