These tube ice makers are versatile.But certain warnings in the operating instructions need to be understood and adhered to. A few months ago we got a request from the management to increase the wall thickness of the cylindrical ice.There are 2 defrost initiation low pressure controls.The righthand one is for cylinder ice, the lefthand one for crushed ice.They wanted me to increase the thickness leaving little or no hole in the center.The recommendation is a minimum of 1/2 inch center hole.This reduces ware on the cutting blade, lessens the chance of freeze-up due insuficient water return, and prevents liquid freon returning to the compressor. Ice production was down.After ruling out a number of other possibilities it became apparent that iiiiiit was partially frozen inside the evaporator.This consists of a refrigerated insulated jacket containing a number of tubes for the water circulation.As the temperature drops, it forms ice on the walls of the tubes. When the low pressure drops to the set point on the LP switch, it opens a solenoid valve that allows hot gas from the compressor discharge to start to melt the ice tube allowing it to drop by gravity where a metal cutter slices the tube into usable sections.There is normally a continuous cascade of ice during the defrost time 0f 3-5minutes.[hence my video lingering on the ice falling should I need to make my point to the “powers that be” that it is making as much ice as it can now]. It took nearly 2 days to defrost the
