Precautions for The Operation of The Ice Machine

Jun. 23, 2019

During the operation of the ice machine, the ice making equipment also needs to maintain the ice machine frequently, so that the ice machine can prevent some common problems during the use process. Fresh Water Ice Machine Factory introduces you to the operation and precautions of the ice machine.

Ice making process

(1) Before starting the machine, it is necessary to check whether the active water supply equipment is normal and whether the water storage capacity of the water tank is reasonable (the water level has been adjusted when the machine is shipped from the factory, the user may not adjust the water).

(2) Plug in the power supply, the ice machine starts the operation, the first pump starts running (the pump has a short-term air discharge process). After about 2 minutes, the compressor starts to start, and the machine enters the ice making condition.

(3) When the thickness of the ice cube reaches the set thickness, the ice plate probe starts to start, the solenoid valve starts to work, the water pump stops working, and the hot gas enters the evaporator, and the ice cube falls about 1.5 minutes. When the ice cubes fall, flip the ice tray and flip the reed switch. When the reed switch is closed from the head, the machine enters another ice making process.

(4) The compressor does not stop during the whole process of ice making and deicing.

Flake Ice Maker

(5) When the ice storage tank is full of ice and the reed switch cannot be actively closed, Flake Ice Maker actively stops the operation. When the ice cube is satisfied, the reed switch is closed from the head, and the machine is started after a delay of 3 minutes. Enter the ice making process.

2. Adjustment of ice bridge thickness

(1) The thickness of the ice bridge should be about 3mm, and the interval between the probe and the evaporator should be about 1.5mm thicker than the thickness of the practice ice bridge. Turn the adjusting screw port clockwise to increase the thickness of the ice bridge (the screw rotates 1/3 circle of ice) The bridge thickness was changed by 1.5mm).

(2) Check the wiring and connecting brackets of the ice plate probes, and ensure that they can return to the correct position after each ice making process.
