Ice Maker Downtime Tips

This time of uncertainty came unexpected for us all and confronts us with many new challenges.
One of the segments affected most by the outbreak and the subsequent containment measures are the international tourism, leisure, and foodservice industry. Businesses such as bars, restaurants, and hotels have to remain closed or operate on reduced capacity. While assessing strategies for alternative income or risk management in the short term, we would like to draw attention to a few things you want to do now, to make sure your machine is perfectly maintained during its downtime.

If your ice maker remains switched off for two days or longer, you want to make sure that the inside parts and the water circuit of your machine stay food safe and hygienic by following these few steps:

CAUTION: Before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance operations, unplug the ice maker from the electrical supply network.
1. Unplug The Ice Maker From The Electrical Supply Network.
2. Close The Water Supply Tap And Remove The Inlet Hose.
3. Remove All Ice From The Storage Bin And Dispose.
4. Clean The Inside Of The Bin With A Food-safe Cleaning Agent.
5. Ask For Draining Of The Icemaker By Professional, Qualified Personnel.
