Dear HVAC Community, we left our water cooled Carpigiani LB502 batchfreezer -the virtual heart of my business-in our unheated garage over the winter without blowing out the water after our last batch of "happy tummy" last summer. (Yeah, I know-how could one be so stupid) Last week we poured in our first batch of mango ice for the season and turned her on. The machine ran for about 10-15 minutes before I noticed water was going in, but not coming out the "out" hose. I called the distributor/service people for this machine who came and looked at her and said that the water line had frozen and broken into the freon (sp?) line. They said they could replace the condenser and compressor for about $ to $ but would not warranty the work or new parts, and that our Carpigiani was basicly toast as water could have gone up anywhere in the system. To buy a new Carpigiani is financially out of the question. Is our dear "Bella" (that's her name) kaput? "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi-you're my last hope!!!"
