Most people nowadays have their own personal ice maker in their home or are using one for their business. These people do not have any idea how the machine really works and what are the things to expect with the machine. They only know that the machine is used to produce ice and if it’s not producing ice, there must be something wrong with it. Here are some of the common concerns common people have.
I Don’t Have Any Ice, How Come?
Did you check first if the machine is turned on? Check if the machine is properly plugged into an appropriate power source and then turn the switch on. Leave it for a couple of hours and you’ll have the ice you need. You can also check the tubing to see if there are any kinks that can cause the problem. Make sure that the water supply is also working fine and that the ice mold is being filled by the machine. There are some instances that the lever arm that sets the timer on the machine for the ice to be made is broken or out-of-place. You might want to check those things first before calling a repairman.
How Come I am Hearing Some Weird Noises in my Machine?
One of the worst fear people have regarding machines. They think once they hear something in the machine, it is broken. The noises you are hearing are caused by a lot of things namely, opening and closing of water valves, rotating arm, filling of water into the ice mold, timer switches and a lot more. It is normal to have some noises being heard from the machine but if the noise becomes a lot louder and irregular, then there might be something wrong with your machine and it might be a good idea to take it to an expert to have it checked.
Does Ice Really Have a Bad Odor or Taste When It Comes Out of the Machine?
No, it usually does not have a bad odor or taste. When it does there’s something wrong with your machine and most of the time it is the water filter causing this kind of problem. Have your filter checked and replaced every 6 months or depending on how long the manufacturer suggest. If the ice has been sitting in the machine for quite a day or so, it might be best to dispose it and let the machine make another batch of ice. Make sure also that the water being used is clean and fresh. tunnel freezer
