Safety Notices – Washer-Extractors

safety_1safety_2If your Milnor washer-extractor has a latch handle such as shown in the pictures to the right, it is equipped with a door interlock that disconnects the electric current to the drive motor and stops the rotation of the cylinder.

During decades of use (these machines are between 27 and 40 years old), it is possible that the interlock system and its components have been improperly adjusted or subjected to abuse. If the interlock system is not working properly, someone can be severely injured if they open the machine while it is operating.

You should immediately test your machine to make sure it is safe before you allow it to continue to be used.

Milnor wants to send you free safety instructions that contain detailed guidelines on how to perform a safety test on the door interlock and how to adjust the door if it fails the test.

These instructions are available by clicking one of the links below.

If you can open a machine while it is operating and the cylinder does not stop immediately, take the machine out of service now until these adjustments can be made.
