There is no repair job too small or too big. Our #1 goal is to get you back up and running as quickly as possible. Emergency Repair is how we handle each and every Service Call. At Subcool refrigeration we understand running a business is time consuming and when your commercial refrigerator, freezer, or ice machine goes down time is of the essence.
Important facts about your ice machine and maintenance:
Water temperature varies throughout the year and can have a positive or negative impact on ice machine components. The location of ice makers can also impact a unit’s production. If ice machines are located in a very warm space or outside in the summer months, production can drastically decrease and components have added wear. It’s important to place the ice machine in a space that can protect it from the outdoor elements, give it proper ventilation and, if possible, a climate controlled environment. If you need advice, repair work, or just a cleaning / maintenance call 416-418-2608 or visit our contact us page.
Ice Machine Maintenance in Toronto
The ice machine is a food producing piece of equipment and yet they seem to be forgotten when it comes to maintenance and cleanliness. If there is slime in your ice machine it’s time to start getting the unit maintained on a regular basis. The average ice machine service should be performed at least once every three months. Higher slime concentrations are found in ice machines located in bars and bakeries due to the high amounts of yeast in beer and baked goods. Consider getting a free quote during a service call or a Routine Maintenance Plan.
Another common problem found in ice machines is the build up of scale or lime. This is nothing more than the minerals in water clumping together. These minerals are left behind in the ice machine and accumulate in reservoirs, orifices, and sensors. Minerals can eventually cause poor production, poor control operation, and can lead to a down ice machine. Again the average ice machine service should be performed at least once every three months. Ice machine maintenance is an important part of business. Routine attention can help you keep a handle on cleanliness and potential issues. Below are other reasons to join.
