Ice Machine Structure and Operation

Ice machine structure, operation principle, is addressed to the elimination of defects and malfunctions that may occur issue.

Ice food, beverages and other products used to start the first civilization period for cooling. Mechanical natural ice use by the beginning of the cooling of the past. Artificial ice production has become an important part of the industry. principle are provided with cooling in an ice production technique. Ice production is made up to 100-150 kg from 25 kg to 5,10 or very small parts as needed. Drinks can be cooled with small ice cubes very quickly without dilution. Quickly drink a glass thin layer serves to cool the ice literally purposes.

Ice surface area of the liquid from the heat no matter how big shot that dipped ice, the more quickly.For example, 6.5 and drinks may come in contact for heat transfer cm³ of an ice cube 39 will cm² like surface. When the ice cubes placed in a glass to 4 of the total heat transfer area will be 156 sq cm. If the bottom of the hole is increased further if the heat transfer area of the ice. Ice machines operate fully automatically province the development of technology and the daily capacity is made up producing a ton of ice from 25-50 kg. They are produced in various forms, such as the ice produced in various sizes. These; ice cubes, ice briquette type of ice as thin-film and large rectangular shaped mold. Some ice machine crushes ice cubes to include in the mechanism. Flat layer of crushed ice and salads in restaurants and cafeterias, used to cool desserts and exhibitions. Depending on the design of the ice machine to the evaporator or evaporators vertical water jets and are immersed in ice water in a horizontal position in water.

After some time the water sprayed on the inverted evap slot in Figure 3.1 begins to freeze in the nest and begin to fill them. Defrost ice blocks are loosened from the slots with the introduction of the system will begin to fall to the ice container.

Figure 3.1: obtained in principle with ice water sprayed on the inverted evap housing

evap ends in Figure 3.2 is immersed in the moving water tank, the water freezes the water around the edges. Water tank mechanical system to bend down. When the ice is poured into a defrost cycle. There are also mechanisms that made the production of ice in the household cupboard.

Ice Machine Fault and Remedy

– The ice machine was not working.


– It may not be receiving power to the machine.
– Operation switch may be defective.
– Cables that carry current to the operation switch off or defective.
– Fan motor and ekovatlar may be defective.


– The machine is made in the outlet is connected to the network or core voltage control.
– Operation switch is controlled. The replaced defective.
– Supply and other cables carrying current to the operation switch is controlled. Faulty cables are replaced.
– Fan motor and ekovatlar has separately controlled by faults. It replaced the defective.

– Fan motor does not work.


– Operation switch may be defective.
– Cables that carry current to fan out or defective.
– The condenser fan motor may be defective.
– The fan motor may be defective.


– Operation switch is controlled. The replaced defective.
– Cables are checked. Replace if worn out tip. If defective cable replaced.
– Condenser fan motor is controlled. The replaced defective.
– The fan motor is controlled. The replaced defective.

– Ice machine fan motor is running. What is cooling nor heating.


– Thermostat defective or the connection may be incorrect.
– Ekovata heat may be defective.
– Ekovata relay may be defective.
– Ekovata first permanent development or capacitor may be defective.
– Ekovata may be defective.


– Thermostat controlled. The replaced defective. If the wrong connection corrected.
– Ecowatt heat is controlled. Current does not exceed the thermal replaced with a new one.
– Relay is controlled. The relay contacts are stuck together or had not changed current.
– Permanent and development capacitor is controlled. The replaced defective.
– Ecowatt winding terminals are checked. Ekovata replaced if defective. System gassed.

– Ice machine does not ekovatlar departure. Thermal stack.


– Permanent or initial development capacitors may be defective.
– The relay may be defective.
– Mains voltage may be lower than 180 volts.
– System can be given more gas.
– It can be stuffed when gas balancing.
– Ekovata may be defective.


– Capacitors are checked. If the defective replaced.
– Relay is controlled. The replaced defective.
– Supply voltage is controlled. 180 volts is expected to increase from the low voltage or voltage regulator is used.
– If you have more excess gas in the system is drained.
– Gas balancing energy and the time until the ekovatlar cut. Then it is determined whether the energy given ekovatlar works.
– Ecowatt the coil ends is controlled. It replaced the defective ekovatlar. System gassed.

– Ice machine fuse blow.


– Could short-circuit in the supply cable.
– Out of the current-carrying cables or defective joints.
– The fan motor can short circuit in the windings.
– Could short-circuit winding Ekovata.

– Remedy:

– Supply cable is checked. If a short circuit wiring is replaced.
– Current-carrying cables are checked. Once the end came. Short circuit of the wiring replaced.
– The fan motor is controlled. If there is a leak or a faulty fan motor housing is changed.
– Ecowatt checked. If shorted Ecowatt ekovatlar replaced and gassed.

– Ice machine works out loud.


– The fan motor bearings or bushings may be defective.
– Ekovata audible works.


– The fan motor is controlled. Voice tone is removed if it is running. If necessary, replaced.
– Ecowatt checked. Connection screws are tightened. If the sound comes from in ekovatlar replaced ekovatlar.
