Love the trouble shooting part, but hate the cleaning. I try to schedule my regular customers during the winter, slower time and it's inside and warm!Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

I think I might hit the boss up and give it a shot. As long as I can keep up with all of my refrigeration pms. Our guy who usually does them also does our winterization/anti-freezing and is pretty busy in the fall and winter.

Yeah the only issue I have with the maintenance on the machines is it not gonna get you anywhere or possibly get you into some issues with the customer is openly providing dates of the last cleaning. How does that approach ever seem to work in your benefit and in the mean time can get employees talking and owners upset. That being said it's nauseating to find the stuff growing in machines. Matter of fact I gashed my hand really bad removing the rubber hose connecting the pump out of under the plates on a hoshizaki cuber. I finished the cleaning after disinfecting the machine and wearing a few pairs of medical gloves. Two days later the boss forced me to go to my doctor cause my hand had blown up to twice its size. Lucky I did as the doctor was almost gonna make me go straight to the ER, but gave into me me leading not too and prescribed antibiotics. I still have both hands but I know now where to find some pretty toxic bacteria. One final point, ice machine cleaner doesn't feel good when it's in you eye and it's not friends with bleach. Haha
