Overall, commercial ice machines are as safe as any other high-use appliance, like refrigerators, freezers, and ovens. It’s the mishandling of ice by employees that commonly leads to ice contamination. Luckily there are many ice machine accessories on the market that help reduce the risk of accidental contamination.
The Cornelius Company has been making quality fountain equipment since the 1930s. Back then, they specialized in beer kegs and draft beer equipment. Nowadays, the company has branched out into Cornelius ice dispensers and machines that accommodate a wide range of commercial ice makers for businesses.
Knowing how to reset an ice maker can reestablish ice to your business in rare circumstances if the machine has shut down. Many of the top commercial ice machines on the market will go into a shutoff mode either a Hoshizaki beep code or a Manitowoc error code if they encounter a problem. Most of the time, resetting an ice maker only succeeds in postponing the inevitable repair you’ll need to get the machine back in working order.
