Ice Machine Repair: A Must for Texas Businesses

Nov 3, 2023 | General Repairs

Ice machines are vital equipment for businesses ranging from restaurants to gas stations. Sometimes the ice makers are located in employee break rooms and kitchens where they are heavily used. Regardless of your type of business, you need a functioning ice machine. Unfortunately, these machines can wear out over time, even with routine maintenance.

Whether your ice machine needs to be installed, repaired, or replaced, CS Mechanical is here to help.

Commercial Ice Machine Repair

Even though every repair job is unique, there are some common issues our technicians run into.

Ice makers can have problems with their settings or thermostats. These issues are typically easy fixes that involve resetting the thermostat to the optimal temperature. When the setting is accidentally switched to the off or paused position, our repair personnel will reposition the bar to signal the ice marker to turn on.

Other issues with commercial ice machines can involve more extensive repairs. The water line may be clogged or leaking. Often, it indicates a broken seal or a crack in the water line. We can replace the water line and any broken seals to effectively stop any leaks.

Expired water filters and malfunctioning ejector assemblies are other common issues we commonly repair at CS Mechanical.

Ice Machine Replacement

Sometimes, a commercial ice machine is beyond repair. The machine may be past its life expectancy or develop issues that make repairs more expensive than replacing the unit.

While we always recommend scheduling routine maintenance for all commercial ice makers, sometimes it is not enough. Some machines also experience more wear and tear than other models. For example, gas stations and convenience stores often have their ice machines located outside. This frees up indoor floor space, but it also exposes the ice maker to the elements. Over time, this can take a toll on an ice maker, and you will need to replace the model.

Our technicians can handle replacing your ice maker and will also remove your old, non-working one.

Troubleshooting Ice Maker

Troubleshooting issues with commercial ice makers involves a complete assessment of the machine. We will check the settings and thermostat if your machine is not turning on or the ice is not freezing. Sometimes, ice can become frozen to the mold. If this is an issue, we will ensure the thermostat is set at the correct temperature.

Our technicians will inspect the filters, especially if your machine is experiencing difficulty getting water through. Impurities in the water can result in clogged filters. Dust, dirt, and debris can also become trapped in the filter.

We will also inspect the water line and seals for any breaks or leaks.

The ice dam, chute, motor, and flap are other components our technicians will inspect to troubleshoot any issues.

Even if there isn’t an issue with your commercial ice machine, the assessment can also help prevent any problems from developing in the future.
