If machine is in fault mode, and you get a fault with code 2 on display it means that the problem is when filling. Check if the tank is filling, check inlet and check the shut off valve.

My Hobart ecomax 500 not heating the water is there any way to check befor calling out an engineer?

You'd need to check continuity of the elements in the boiler. Does the machine cycle at all?

Have a Hobart ecomax 452/502 dishwasher.. using too much auto liquid.... about 4 litres a day...

Remove the auto liquid , replace with water.
Start a washing cycle, wait two minutes till you hear the water filling inside. Open the door and pour a litre or so of Vinegar inside the machine. Let the rest of the cycle run.

This should clean out the inside of the machine if its not too bad. Otherwise you will have to find the "chemical sensor" and mechanically clean whatever is stopping it from sensing the water. It usually looks like two pencil ends about an inch apart.
If your machine looks "white" inside when its dry (from hard water) you might need a stronger cleaner than vinegar, or just try using two litres.

Random starting by itself

Does this happen all the time?Is the door closed and are they bent?If you stand in front of the unit on the right door up top is there a grey looking capsule (door magnet) is it loose?Next to it should be another capsule which has a switch inside.I would make sure these 2 capsules are tight.Let me know.I'm a hobart tech.
