    Taylor C602 Soft Serve

    My work has a Taylor C602 Soft Serve machine that is making the shake side to soft to serve, the manual says when that happens the syrups need calberated, but have done that 3 times, but haven't changed the thickness of the shake side.

    The air filter is cleaned, the condenser coil is clean, scraper blades look close to new, there is a minmum 3" air space on all sides, and they have not outdrawn the capacity of the freezing cylinder.

    Just wondering on what else there is that can be done to figure out what is going on with the machine.

    Take a look at the diaphragm on the air/mix pump. Are you a tech? Or diy. Is the compressor shutting off or are you seeing a comp on to long error. Need more info.

    I am in in-house tech for McDonald's, I just started in January so I haven't had ahole lot of training on this machine other that doing the PM service on it. The compressor is shutting off and don't get a error at all, just the mix is to soft for the shake side.

    Take a look at the current conditions option in the tech menue. What are your headlends when the comp shuts off. Try to raise the headlands by about 500 at a time and let the machine freeze down and see if this helps. Do not go to far you do not want to freeze the mix sold. Is the first shake ok then they get soft as the machine sits?

    May be time to put your gauges on it. Suction on shake is 38 to 40 soft serve is 20 to 22. Make shire that the suction pressure does not rise above 50 when the machine cycles off. If it. Does than you may have a leaky check valve in the axv or bad valves in the compressor causing hot gas to flood into barrel and melt the mix. Make shure that your glycol heater is not stuck on.

    Thanks, I'll be starting at that store on Monday to figure out why the OJ machine is making noises only in the morning. Since I will be there I'll look at the shake side while there

    Check your torque coupling.

    Already looked at the hd shake? Here in Brazil we use HD2500 and Viscosity 4.2A. If I put more than these settings is noisy.
