Any Orange County business that’s involved in the hospitality industry and that has a direct connection with customers will have a commercial ice machine.

That makes you very lucky indeed.
Is The Warranty Still in Effect
When you or one of your employees notices that one of your commercial ice machines isn’t working up to expectations, the first thing you need to do is learn if the machine is still under warranty. If it is, you’ll want to get in touch with the manufacture and learn how they want you to proceed. In some cases, they’ll offer to replace the faulty appliance. In other cases, they’ll provide you with information about who can and can’t repair the unit while they foot the repair bill. If the appliance is still protected by the warranty, under no circumstances should you or any of your employees attempt to handle the repairs, which will void the warranty, making you financially responsible for the repair.
Commercial Ice Machine: The Evaporator
More often than not, when an Orange County business contacts us about our Commercial Ice Machine and Commercial Ice Maker Repair, the issue is the machines evaporator. The evaporator is the part responsible for ice formation; it warms up once the ice has is created. The increased heat causes the ice to fall into the bin so that your customers can enjoy it. When the evaporator fails to perform correctly, the entire ice machine often shuts down, or the ice is created too quickly and is sometimes only half reliable before it falls into the bin.
You’ll be delighted to learn that even though the evaporator isn’t working the way, it’s supposed to; it doesn’t indicate that you need to start shopping for a new commercial ice maker. In most cases, we’re able to resolve the matter by simply cleaning the evaporator. In addition to making sure the evaporator is really clean, we’ll also check out the rest of your commercial ice machine and commercial ice maker and search for any additional problems. If a good cleaning doesn’t resolve the evaporator problems, will replace the part for you at a reasonable rate.
When we have encountered a commercial ice machine we’ve found with a broken evaporator that needs to be replaced, it’s our experience that the evaporator was dirty, stopped working, and the owner attempted to replace the evaporator themselves and ended up damaging it, which is why it’s better to leave commercial ice machine and commercial ice maker repair to the professionals. Once the evaporator is clean, coating it with a thin layer of non-stick cooking spray helps keep the minerals and debris in your water from creating future problems.
If you suspect that your ice maker has stopped working as a result of a dirty evaporator, the best thing you can do is to turn it off and let it defrost for a few hours.
Proper Commercial Ice Machine Cleansing Practices
Believe it or not, you can actually over clean your commercial ice machine. We’ve read reports that frequent use of ice machine cleaner damages the outer finish on the machine’s internal parts, such as the evaporator. Over time, continual exposure to the harsh ice machine cleaner can cause the parts to break down. We advise that you save the commercial ice machine cleaner for occasional use and use a cleaner that’s formulated for nickel plated parts for everyday cleaning. We think it will keep your commercial ice machine in good repair for a longer period.
Commercial Ice Machine: Problems with Temperature
The internal temperature of the ice makers can be a problem. In most cases, the problem with the temperature is discovered when the bin is full of cold water and a few floating ice cubes.
A broken thermostat means the commercial ice machine is unable to regulate the internal temperature, which results in the machine running to form and being unable to fulfill its basic function. You’ll be elated to learns that we have plenty of replacement thermostats in stock and will be able to install them with minimal fuss and for a very low rate.
Commercial Ice Machine: Sensor Problems
Modern commercial ice machines and commercial ice makers have internal sensors that are responsible for monitoring the quality of both the water and ice. The sensors have done wonderful things with regards to improving the overall quality of ice you serve your customers, but they’ve created some commercial ice machine repair issues that older units don’t have. The most common sign of a problem with one or more internal sensors is the creation of dirty or misshapen ice cubes. It’s our experience that the simplest way to deal with sensor issues in commercial ice machine is swapping the faulty sensor with a new one.
