Ice Machine Maintenance Program

Clean sanitary ice when you want it

Keep your ice machine clean and running. Our Sarasota ice machine, repair, cleaning, and maintenance program includes our detailed Max Clean Service (once annually) plus our Maintenance Clean Service (every 3 months) with our written report. You also get no overtime charges, 10% discounts on any repairs and parts you may need to keep your machine running well.

Water filter cartridge replacements are billed separately since there is a wide variance in filter costs. There is no extra labor charge for this while we are servicing the ice machines we sell in Sarasota.

Save more on your program cost by combining this program with our AC or refrigeration program and save even more:

  • Combine all of your Ice Machines, all refrigeration systems and all AC systems to get 10% off all program costs.
  • Combine all AC systems and Ice Machines to get 5% off of these program costs.
  • All programs can be customized for your unique situation. You can add more Dump & Cleans in high yeast environments as needed.
Is mold a problem for your ice machine? Yeast from bread and alcohol can escalate these problems. Sometimes removing the machine from this environment is possible. Keep bin doors closed and floors dry. Installing a UV light usually helps when nothing else works.

Max Clean Service

Usually done once annually. Remove ice from the bin and save in our sanitized ice barrels. Machine is disassembled per factory procedures, and parts are soaked in sanitizer while we chemical wash the compressor and condenser coil sections. We scrub and rinse machine cabinet surfaces including the bottom of the machine, inside storage bin and all showing exterior surfaces. Small rusted areas are treated and painted. The evaporator is scrubbed with the appropriate chemical as to not damage the plating on some evaporators. The machine is then reassembled. The circulating cleaning process is now done once with nickel-safe ice machine cleaner (or Lime Away if Hoshizaki) then with sanitizer. The machine is then tested and timed for production capacity. The saved ice is returned to the clean bin (or anywhere you want it) and a written report with suggestions is provided. This job can take up to 5 hours depending upon conditions and machine size.

Maintenance Clean Service

Usually performed quarterly. The ice machine is cleaned in place to remove any dirt, scale or mold. Interior surfaces are sanitized. Self-contained condenser coils and air filters are cleaned. Cleaner and sanitizer are circulated per factory instructions. A written report with suggestions is provided. This job can take up to 2½ hours depending upon conditions and machine size.

The Best Made Ice Machines For You!

We provide Hoshizaki commercial ice machines for sale to businesses which range in size starting from150 up to 1800 pounds per day. Most machines over 500lbs are also available in “remote” configuration. This means the heat is rejected outdoors via a remote condenser section. This configuration saves a lot of energy used on air conditioning and keeps the room cooler.

These models are used with ice bins, soda fountain dispensers, and hotel ice dispensers in addition to the ice-and-water dispensers. We also have available under-counter ice machines equipped with built-in bins.

All ice machines include a water filtration system for the highest quality ice possible. These high quality filters are routinely serviced by our trained staff.

Subscriptions are offered for ice bins, which range in capacities from 250 pounds through 900 pounds. In addition, if you require a dispenser, we’ve got whatever your business needs.

Proven Customer Support!
