    Cornelius 830 Cuber

    I called this 'old age', but one of the fellas suggested it had been cleaned with the wrong juice. Is this what happens when we don't use nickel-safe...?

    It looks like the 4th horizontal slat down is pulled out. I think that would be "old age".

    I always thought if you didn't use nickle safe, the plating would be gone and all the copper in the evap would be showing.

    Edit:Just noticed the 5th stat is gone.

    A good example of the death of a Cornelius by evaporator separation. The evaporator looks to me like a typical six year old Cornelius. Thank goodness they're almost all gone now.

    In answer to your question yes, but that could also be from old age and lack of cleaning the unit. Same thing happens to Iceomatic ICE units.
