    Worked on my first ice machine today

    Had to help out another tech with one of his buildings since he was to busy. Call was for no ice in the kitchen. I said I have never worked on one but I can't break it anymore then it is. Get there and start trouble shooting. Found thisName:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1367270352.960909.jpg

    After I got the power back on the unit started working and went through its dump cycle. Then I switched it over and it started making ice. I did not realize how fast it makes it. Here is the model

    I got a new solenoid for it even though it was working. Seems to be making ice great now.

    Commercial heating and cooling. RTUs, boilers, air handlers, condensers. That sort of stuff. Just never had to work on one before. Pretty easy after I looked at it.

    Thankfully the majority of ice machine calls will be water management - often attributed to lack of cleaning. The problems due to refrigeration system problems are the true challenge. If you can get into some Manitowoc training, GET it!

    No I just got it running it looked pretty clean. The guy who takes care of it is good with cleanings. But not good with solenoids. Lol

    It was a kitchen in one of the data centers we maintain.

    So did the cover pull the wire nut off or you think it fell off by itself?
    Just wondering if that's all that was wrong.
    If the machine was off due to a safety cycling the power would have reset it and it would fire up again.
    FWIW The error code is stored and shows when you toggle power from off to on but will clear after so many good cycles.

    Found it like that when the cover came off. Wire nut was on the bottom of the cabinet.

    Holy crap, a B-series. Those things are antiques. Only certain parts are carried by my United, most are special order.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.
