What Should We Pay Attention to when Using the Ice Machine?

Nov. 21, 2020

With the rapid increase in demand for ice in human production and life and the continuous expansion of ice applications, ice machines have been widely used in commercial areas such as hotels, KTVs, and fast-food restaurants. So what should we pay attention to when using the ice machine?

1. The ice maker should be installed in a well-ventilated place, and the ambient temperature should not exceed 35°C to prevent excessively high ambient temperature from causing poor condenser heat dissipation and affecting the ice-making effect. The ground on which the cube ice maker is installed should be firm and level, and the ice maker must be kept level to avoid ice removal and noise during operation.

2. It is best to use an independent power supply for the ice maker, a dedicated line for power supply, a fuse, and a leakage protection switch, and a reliable grounding.

3. The ice maker must regularly unscrew the head of the water inlet hose and thoroughly clean the filter screen of the water inlet valve to prevent sand and mud impurities in the water from blocking the water inlet, causing the water inlet to become small and making ice impossible.

4. The ice machine must clean the surface of the condenser regularly. Poor condensation heat dissipation will cause damage to the compressor components. When cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner, a small brush, etc. to clean the oil dust on the condensing surface. Do not use sharp metal tools to clean, which will damage the condenser. When cleaning the ice machine, turn off the power. It is strictly forbidden to flush the machine directly with the water pipe, use neutral detergent to scrub, and it is strictly forbidden to clean with corrosive solvents such as acid and alkali. When the ice maker is not in use, clean it, use a hairdryer to dry the ice mold and the moisture in the box, and place it in a ventilated and dry place. Avoid storing in the open air or direct sunlight.

5. There should be enough space around the machine, especially the rear side should not be less than 250mm so that the machine can dissipate heat. Also, it is not easy to be placed in the open air, it is not suitable to receive direct sunlight and rainforest, and it should not be close to heat; it must be installed on solid ground, and the machine must be installed horizontally without tilting, otherwise the machine will vibrate when rotating, and if the tilt is too large It will also store water in the ice storage refrigerator and affect the quality of ice.
