Ice Machine Maintenance


Many times, maintenance of a commercial ice machine in a restaurant or other business is overlooked for more pressing tasks. There are a few simple procedures that can keep a commercial ice machine functioning for much longer than when left alone.

Replace water filters every six months.

Water filters are extremely important to extending the life of your machine and should be replaced every six months. A water filter performs three tasks:

Removes sediment from the water, keeping ice clean and clear in appearance.


Inhibits scale, which can build up in the machine over time and drastically reduce ice production.


Removes odor and bad taste, keeping customers happy.

Although the filter may not appear to be blocked with sediment after six months, the scale inhibitor and carbon elements (which prevent odor and bad taste) are usually depleted and no longer effective.


Condenser Coil Maintenance


Cleaning commercial ice machine condenser coils is an essential part of preventive maintenance. Dirty coils shorten the life of the compressor and reduce ice production. Eventually a safety will cut the machine off to prevent further damage.


All of these issues can be avoided with a regular cleaned ice machine.


Cleaning your condenser coils is part of The Ice Queen's detailed cleaning process. Even long time customers have saved hundreds if not thousands of dollars in service calls due to the preventative maintenance that Ice Queen provides.

Contaminated ice is a health issue. It is a frequent finding on HEALTH DEPARTMENT FOOD SANITATION REPORTS, yet commercial ice makers remain the least cared for food machines in restaurants, bars, convenience stores, schools, hospitals and Senior Care Facilities.

When was the last time you took the cover off your ice maker to see for yourself what's GROWING inside that shiny stainless steel box? You're likely to find some fairly nasty bacteria infecting the ice you serve. Microbial growth spoils the tubing. SLIME clogs the pump, screen and float switch. SCALE hardens on the evaporator and water valves, deforming the cubes and causes your machine to work harder. MOLD, if not removed, can destroy the housing, motor and electronics.


Self-Cleaning cycles clean only the evaporator .. leaving the bin and all other food contact parts vulnerable to infectious agents and slime forming bacteria!
