Customer Questions & Answers

Is the ice bin removable? If so, is it easy to remove and replace? I'll be using it to fill up coolers each day.

Asked by: bethmoon
The ice falls into a little basket that is easy to remove and dump into a cooler. =)

How long will it store the ice before melting?

Asked by: BobBer
I will hold the ice like a cooler, keeping it frozen for a few hours. However, if you don't use it for a day or so, it will melt and shut itself off. Which I liked when we left on vacation.

Does this machine make cloudy or CLEAR ice?

Asked by: DD
Usually the first batch of ice from the machine is clear but the rest are cloudy. I've tried distilled water but the cubes are still cloudy. But it's clean water, so they taste good.

I called the manufacturer asking them for help to get the ice maker to stay on and to find out why it will not stay on or even act like it is doing anything. They said they would send me an email with some directions of what might be the problem. It took them 48 hours to get an email that told me to disassemble the front plate and to disconnect the wires... it did not work. The machine will turn on now but it will not do ANYTHING. Now it is 4 days into owning this machine and I will have to wait another 48 hours to get a new email... would of liked to talk to a technician and ask my questions before any emails were sent. Customer service for this company sucks and am not happy that the machine wont work.

Once we ran through a few cycles on initial set up - we produce more ice than we can use in a day, being there is only 2 of us. We also have plenty when company comes over. Nice to never run out when you need it.

I am sure it would have been everything we wanted and more but the one that was delivered to us would not stop cycling and we had to send it back . we did buy a smaller one 26# a day and it is amazing more ice then we can possibly use.

It is so nice to be able to make ice in-house as opposed to hauling in bags of ice from the convenience store. We have had it about a month and use it at least 8 hrs a day. It will pay for itself soon!
