DIAGNOSING BIG DIPPER AUTOMATIC GREASE TRAPS BY PART

About the Wheel Wiper

About the Wheel Wiper

If you notice a Big Dipper with an empty grease collector, ask the kitchen operator if it has been recently emptied. Otherwise, the unit may not be gathering grease as it should. Luckily, there's usually a simple solution -- cleaning the wiper blade assembly. Share this brief overview of this vital but oft-overlooked part in Big Dipper automatic grease removal units.

About the Strainer Basket

About the Strainer Basket

Another possible reason a Big Dipper automatic grease trap you're inspecting isn't skimming the usual amount of grease into the grease collector is an overflowing strainer basket. The basket should be emptied daily, a task that is commonly overlooked because the basket is hidden inside the tank. Share with the FSE this brief reference on the internal strainer basket.

About the Thermistor

About the Thermistor

Thermistors are temperature sensors used in a number of everyday appliances such as fire alarms, ovens, and refrigerators. Big Dippers also use Thermistors. If you notice four blinking lights on a Big Dipper automatic grease trap you're inspecting, the user may need to replace the thermistor. Here's a step-by-step guide to share with the FSE.
