    Crap-o-matic call

    no production from ice machine. found bad cond. fan motor. i replace it & open up the ice area because from the looks of things i assumed inside was dirty .. well it was & besides the slime & sh!t i notice something sticking out of the water distribution tube .. see it in the 2nd pic right about in the middle ???? what is it i wonder .. i look closer .. its a cockaroach (3rd pic closeup) .. i look up inside the interior of this thing & see a roach making a run for it & a few little babies i can assure you i wont ever eat here EVER! alot of restaurants have roaches to some extent but this was nasty as hell .. i would have taken a pic of the roach i plucked out but at that point staff was watching me so i put the camera away

    Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    Looks like German cockroaches, they are very hard to get rid of and they will follow you home!(In your pockets ,cuffs of your pants ..Whatever!) Be wary of these little buggers because they only respond to pyrethrum or some similar stuff ,they are hard to get rid of.

    I have. Matter of fact I was working on the same ice machine today. They no longer have the roach problem in the ice machine but there are still a few dead ones in the control panal. Groooooose
