Firstly, all ice maker brands suggest customers using clean water rather than other liquids like juice, soda, etc.
There are 2 MAIN REASONS:
1. Liquid with too many impurities may cause the water pipes and pumps inside the ice maker to be blocked.
2. Different liquid tension, density, and freezing point are different. Have you ever noticed a phenomenon that if your ice maker has not been cleaned for a long time, the shape of the ice cubes will be deformed and not as good-looking as they were when you first bought it? This is even more obvious on bullet-type ice cube ice makers. This is because if there is no cleaning for a long time, there will be more impurities inside the ice maker, resulting in a change in the tension of the water, which will directly affect the condensation effect of the water in the icebox on the surface of the evaporator of the ice maker. The cleaner the water, the tension is smaller, the shape of the ice cube is closer to the design requirements.
Knowing the reason, now you should understand the benefits that the ice machine has an automatic cleaning function will bring you. At a close price, we recommend that you choose an ice machine with a self-clean function. In addition, it is actually necessary to do the usual maintenance work. For example, do not put the ice machine in a dusty place. Keep the surface clean or you can put a cover for dust proof.
