• Mix 5 oz. Elite Ice Machine Cleaner per gallon of warm water in a plastic container and place parts in solution. Soak the parts until they are free of lime/scale. For stubborn or thick deposits use a brush to help the dissolving action.

Many times, maintenance of a commercial ice machine in a restaurant or other business is overlooked for more pressing tasks. There are a few simple procedures that can keep a commercial ice machine functioning for much longer than when left alone.

Sometimes I use the Nu Calgon brand Ice Guard after I am done cleaning an ice machine. It is a cylinder you leave in the sump water under the ice cube diverter. It keeps the machine cleaner longer and extends the time it takes to get dirty again to require antother cleaning. They last for six monts.
