Why Does the Flake Ice Machine Not Make Ice?

Nov. 24, 2020

The application of flake Ice Machine in the domestic refrigeration, preservation, and cooling field has been very common, and the production technology of flake Ice Machine is also a very mature standard. What are the uses of the flake ice machine? It is inevitable that there will be some minor problems in the use process. What are the reasons why the machine does not make ice, do you know how to solve it?

Let the flake ice machine manufacturer explain to you, I hope it can be helpful to you.

What is a flake ice machine?

Flake ice machine is a kind of ice machine, generally industrial ice machine. The ice produced is flakes. Flake ice can be made from freshwater or saltwater. Flake ice is thin, dry, and loose white ice with a thickness of 10 mm to 15 mm. The shape of the surface is irregular, and the diameter is about 12 to 45 mm. Flake ice has no sharp edges and corners, and will not stab frozen objects. It can enter the gap between the cooled objects, reduce heat exchange, maintain the temperature of ice, and have a good moisturizing effect. Flake ice has an excellent refrigeration effect and has the characteristics of large and rapid refrigeration, so it is mainly used in various large-scale refrigeration facilities, food quick freezing, concrete cooling, and so on.

Use of flake ice machine

1. Food processing: For example, when stirring or applying the cream twice in bread production, use flake ice to quickly cool down to prevent fermentation.

2. Aquatic products processing: flake ice can reduce the temperature of processing media, washing water and aquatic products, prevent bacterial growth, and keep aquatic products fresh during processing.

3. Poultry meat processing: huge heat will be generated during poultry and meat processing. Flake ice can be used to cool the poultry meat, and at the same time adjust the humidity of the product and improve the quality.

4. Fisheries: Seawater flake ice machines can be directly installed on fishing boats, using seawater to make ice, and salvaged seafood can be quickly frozen and fresh-keeping processed. The fishery can be said to be one of the relatively main application areas of flake ice machines.

The reason why the flake ice machine does not make ice

1. There is no response when starting the block ice unit, which is usually a failure of the refrigeration unit. You can check whether the block ice electric control box is normal by checking whether the main power supply has electricity and what the voltage is.

2. The block ice unit refrigeration works normally, but do not give ice, the water distribution tray is short of water, or the water distribution tray has too much water. You can adjust the water level of the water distributor by adjusting the water supply valve on the ice bucket water supply pipe and referring to the manual.

3. Press the start button to start ice making, the compressor, and other motors do not work, the ice full protection indicator is on, or the main switch is powered off, or the start button is damaged, the PLC computer board is damaged, and the ice cubes in the refrigerator can be confirmed. Full or full anti-icing switch is damaged, and there is no power supply, and the main brake of the power supply is damaged or damaged, and the PLC computer board is faulty.

4. The compressor of the block ice machine can work normally, but it is not refrigerated, so ice cannot be formed. The cause of this situation is generally due to insufficient refrigerant inside the block ice machine or damage to the two-way solenoid valve of the refrigerator, resulting in the compressor If the closing is not tight, you can check whether the refrigerant is sufficient, increase the refrigerant appropriately or replace with a new solenoid valve pair.
