    Hoshizaki KM-280MWE

    Why does the hot gas line have a 2" capillary tube brazed into it? I can't say I've seen that before on one of these KM's but then again I've never had to mess with the hot gas circuit on one either.

    The flow rate of the hot gas is critical on ice machines. It is often sized based on the orifice size of the hot gas solenoid, but sometimes they need to reduce the flow via piping.

    That does not look right.

    Edit - just saw that's a really small machine, 280lb. So maybe it's supposed to have that.
