A very large percentage on the time if your Gastronorm Turbo Oven, Hot Cupboard, Boiling Ring, Hot Water Urn & Deep Fat Fryer switches on but does not heat up to the correct working temperature, this is due to the item cannot draw off the correct amount of wattage to work efficiently.
Please unplug & move the item to an area where there are no other electrical items plugged in.
All modern kitchens work on a spur systems so although you have tried the item in a different plug in the same room and it has not correctly warmed up it is because there may be many items using that same spur.
The quickest and easiest way to find out is to plug the item in a different room. This often will solve the problem.
Please find below a list of minimum wattage requirements to ensure the electrical items hired work correctly.
Hot Water Urn 3kw
Gastronorm Turbo Fan Oven 3kw
Hot Cupboard 2kw
Boiling Ring 1kw
Deep Fat Fryer 3kw
Soup Kettle 1kw
Refrigerator (5Cuft) 0.5kw
