No matter the size or shape of your ice maker, here are three easy-to-do and easy-to-remember steps you can take to ensure that your machine is in tip-top shape.
1. Use a Water Filter
Using a water filtration system will not only improve the quality of your ice, but it will also help you avoid the need for repairs and increase the overall well-being of your machine. If you are the owner of a portable ice maker, try using already filtered water in your machine.
2. Keep It Clean
Routine cleaning of your machine’s internal components using a quality ice machine cleaner will keep your ice from being small, cloudy or soft.
3. Control Ambient Temperature
For ice makers to work properly, it is best that they are kept in an area of either controlled or moderate temperatures. The best temperature range to keep your ice machine in is between 50 and 80 degrees F.
