O-rings are round shaped seals design to prevent air or fluid passing through a connecting joint; achieved by seating the o-ring in a defined grove between two or more parts. As o-rings age, they can deteriorate due to the loss of elasticity in the o-ring, contact with corrosive fluids causing the o-ring to break apart over time, and lastly, the o-ring may suffer damage during assembly or dismantling of a component.
If your commercial dishwasher is leaking, many components could be the cause. Replacing a worn or broken o-ring often requires disassembling important assemblies within the machine. For this reason, we recommend a qualified commercial dishwasher machine service technician be called to identify and resolve the issue.
