Keep Your Commercial Ice Machine in Great Working Order

Commercial kitchens are hectic places, as is the area behind the bar. If you want to ensure that you make it through your dinner service or weekend evenings successfully, you need to know that every piece of commercial refrigeration equipment, including your commercial ice machine in Southern Vermont, is in fine working condition. When anything goes wrong with such systems, you are going to have to schedule professional repair services immediately. That being said, there are certain steps that you can take to ensure that your commercial ice machine remains in peak operating condition. Here are a few tips from the pros on our staff. If you require any service, or have questions to ask, feel free to contact the friendly team here at HB Energy Solutions. 

Clean Your Machine

It is important that you empty out and clean your ice machine with the frequency suggested in the system’s literature. This serves a couple of functions. First and foremost, it keeps the ice coming from your machine sanitary. You don’t want to be serving malodorous or foul tasting ice to your guests, nor do you want that ice to be visually tainted. Routine sanitation is also a great way in which to protect the system itself, preventing drain clogs and other issues.

Change Your Filter

Another simple, yet vital, way in which to keep your ice machine in great condition is to routinely change the filter in the system. There are lots of pollutants and particles which may pop up in the water feeding your system. By ensuring that your filter is clean, you can ensure the quality of your ice, and help to prevent the buildup of pollutants on mechanisms within the system.

Ensure Proper Airflow

Your ice machine requires sufficient airflow if its compressor and other components are to operate properly. If you see ice building up on your system, ironically, it is actually a serious problem, and one which may be traced back to poor airflow. Schedule routine maintenance, and alert a trained professional as soon as you suspect that there is a problem with your system.
