    Flake Ice Machine tutorials!

    Hello,

    I need information on how to set up a Flaker with a condensing unit. I need info on the controls needed to make it work. I also need info on how does it work.

    Can anyone post manuals, tutorials of these machines?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think that's going to happen in an open forum

    I can't be a proffesional member because the board does not recognize my degree (It's from Chile).

    Does that mean you applied and were turned down.
    or you just think they won't accept it.

    Ok.

    Just wanted to make sure you did apply. Some people in the past thought they wouldn't be accepted, and hadn't tried.

    I'm not part of the membership committee. Sorry to hear about your misfortune with your application.

    I don't think you'll find any tutorials, but here's a page full of manuals for you:

    Flakers like the Howe are very simple machines. Not much that anyone with basic refrigeration knowledge and a service manual couldn't figure out in short order.

    I agree with that JP.

    The Howe manuals are very well documented and cover just about everything you need to know...If you have a solid background in refrigeration service.

    I'm beginning to think crised may not have the latter.
