BBGA to hold bakery equipment repair class

August 27, 2015  By Bakers Journal

On Sept. 12-13, the Bread Bakers Guild of America will hold a practical class on bakery equipment repair at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, Colo.

Through the session, entitled “The MacGyver Approach to Bakery Equipment Repair,” Kurt Schmitt, co-owner of Deerfields Bakery in Illinois, will teach participants to identify and fix common problems.

Students will learn about thermostats, electrical relays, converting from single phase to three-phase, and how to set up a preventive maintenance plan.

The class will also visit local bakeries to view their equipment and discuss troubleshooting.
