    Gotcha. That's an easy one to change all by itself. I recently put a TXV in an old 502 unit the customer didn't want to replace.

    The Hoshi was also a cleaning call, customers had been complaining of black specks in the ice. When I pulled the plastic pieces off the top of the evaporator, both sides fell off. I put it back together as best I could. It only makes ice on half of the evap. New evap going in Monday.
    Yes, you have to love those machines mounted on beverage dispensers. When you empty all the ice out of the bin to clean the black stuff off the ice machine, the customers get mad they can't get ice and you're in the way. They don't get to see to appreciate what a favor we are doing them.

    Not all of them. My wife used to be a gm there. She said they just checked in the bin. All the owners had them do was wipe it down. That being said it was nowhere near that bad.

    This why I disinfect my ice by covering/washing it with Scotch before I consume. Kill's all that crud.

    Are you referring to a certain chain that has two first names that usually sprout up around colleges? If so i can second that! They actually clean them!
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Well you got to die from something might as well be from ice machine snot. I mean why would you want to die in bed with lovely blond after hitting the Power Ball for a hundred million or so?
