3 Signs It's Time to Replace a Commercial Ice Machine, Honolulu, Hawaii

Businesses like restaurants, hotels, coffee shops need to keep food and drinks cool, so having functional commercial refrigeration equipment, including ice machines, is essential. If you’re concerned about the current state of your ice machine, here are a few signs it may be time to look for a replacement. 

How to Tell When You Need a New Ice Machine for Your Business

1. Problems With Energy Efficiency

Have you noticed higher utility bills at your business with no explanation? If so, the problem could be your ice machine. As components wear down, your machine will require more energy for the same output. If this wear isn’t addressed in a timely manner, you’re likely to feel a financial impact. 

2. Equipment Leaks

When issues arise, you may find leaks both inside and outside of the machine, depending on the nature of the problem. While leaks are sometimes easily fixed—for example, if the ice machine isn’t on level ground—in other cases, replacement is necessary.

3. Issues With Ice Production

A water inlet controls the flow of water entering the machine when making ice. Damage to the inlet, such as a leak in the line, may stop the water flow and ice production. Clogs can also occur within water filters, which keeps ice from making its way into the basin.
