Signs that Your Commercial Ice Machine is Failing
On average, a standard commercial ice machine has a limited lifespan of just four to five years. You can get your ice machine to last a lot longer with regular cleanings and repairs - some people are able to get as many as ten years out of their ice machines! But it’s important to know that these devices run hard and don’t last as long as other commercial appliances.
If you notice any of the below signs, contact Pacific Appliance Repair Services right away. You can expect quick service and high quality repairs that will add years of life onto your ice machine.
If your ice machine is making noises that are out of the ordinary, it’s time to get things checked. Ice machines are naturally noisy, so you’ll need to be familiar with the ‘normal’ sounds your machine makes.
Another sign that your commercial ice machine is failing is leaks. When a water leak forms on your machine, it’s likely to cause puddles of water underneath the appliance and condensation on the exterior of the machine. Left unaddressed, the leaks can cause water damage to your floors and baseboards, and your ice machine may shut down completely.
Are you noticing that your ice cubes are not fully frozen? It’s possible that you’re having trouble with the compressor, the part of the ice machine responsible for controlling the internal temperature. Compressor problems can also lead to slush instead of cubes.
To be efficient, you rely on your ice machine to pump out a lot of ice at once. If it’s giving you limited output, this will affect the efficiency of your business. You’ll have to replace the ice more frequently and have to reach lower and lower to access fresh ice cubes. This is not a fluke – something is likely wrong with your machine.
Ice should always taste ‘clean.’ If it has a bad taste or odor, it will ruin the flavor of your beverages. Don’t serve your customers foul-tasting drinks – call in the experts for fast ice machine repair!
