With your Sub-Zero ice maker, you never have to worry about running out of ice, which is a major convenience in the hot climate of summer. In order to ensure refreshing ice summer after summer, there are a few maintenance tasks that you should perform on a regular basis.
Change Air Filters
Ice makers come in two forms: water-cooled and air-cooled. Regardless of which category your ice maker falls into, you’ll need to swap out the air filters on a regular basis. The general timeframe for replacing a filter is around 6 months. If you’re not comfortable swapping out the filters by yourself, place a call to a Sub-Zero ice maker repair service.
Change Water Filters
Changing your ice maker’s water filters on a consistent basis is every bit as important as swapping out its air filters. This will ensure that the machine consistently produces fresh-tasting ice and that said ice is made with soft water. Since hard water is known for producing unpleasant-tasting ice and adding various impurities to ice cubes, it’s in your best interest to be vigilant about water filter replacements.
Clean Water Intake
You’ll also need to pay special attention to your ice maker’s water intake. To curb the spread of bacteria and other contaminants in the water intake, periodically clean it with the aid of an intake sanitizing kit or have a reliable maintenance company perform this task in your stead.
