One of the essential parts of having a good running ice machine is having a clean condenser. If you fail to properly clean the condenser on a regular basis, you run the risk of increasing the freeze time of your ice machine. This means that the production of ice will decrease greatly, which can affect your business greatly. One of the easiest ways to keep your ice machine’s condenser clean is by using a nylon brush to remove any dust that may be between the blades of your fan.

Mold and Mildew

Any very important concern that you should have in regards to your ice machine is mold and mildew that can form over time. The parts of your ice machine that do not come in contact with water on a regular basis can start to develop harmful mold and bacteria. The longer you neglect to clean your ice machine, the more risk you run of developing harmful bacteria. The best way to keep your machine free of bacteria and mold is by using a scrub brush and a bleach based cleaner to disinfect the machine on a regular basis.

Lime Scale Build Up

Over time, the water that flows through your ice machine can start to cause problems due to the lime buildup it can cause. The buildup of lime in your ice machine can reduce the amount of ice that is made and it can wreak havoc on the internal parts of your machine. The best way to combat this is by running the cleaning cycle on your machine on a regular basis. You need to also scrub the evaporator with a nylon brush to remove in buildup that is present. The more precautions you take with your machine, the better off you will be in the long run.
