Cleaning & Maintenance
Maintaining a clean commercial ice machine not only helps prevent the growth of bacteria and slime build-up, it can also improve ice production and taste. Additionally, FDA regulations require ice machines to be cleaned and sanitized according to the OEM specifications which is often 2-4 times per year.*
Depending on the location of the ice machine and OEM specifications, more frequent cleanings, or different procedures than those listed below, may be required.
All personnel involved in cleaning kitchen equipment are required to wear the following safety equipment: chemical splash goggles, impervious gloves.
NOTE: The condenser air filter removes dirt or dust from the air, and keeps the condenser from getting clogged. As the filter becomes clogged, the ice maker’s performance will be reduced.
NOTE: The storage bin is for ice only. Do not store anything else, including the scoop, in the ice bin.
If the above items checkout, call a professional technician to troubleshoot.
The water filter and filtration system help protect ice quality and prevent scale buildup.
Each water system is designed to address unique water quality concerns. Water quality varies by geography so it’s best to test water quality at the site to determine which treatment system is the best fit for the facility.
