Ice Forming in the PerfectDraft Machine

If you're experiencing ice forming in your PerfectDraft machine, don't worry. There are a few simple steps you can take to resolve the issue.

Understanding Frost and Ice Formation

Firstly, it's important to note that a little bit of frost is normal. The cooling system in the machine uses a refrigerant gas that can cause condensation to form. However, if you're noticing a lot of ice building up, this could indicate an underlying problem that needs addressing.

Steps to Resolve Ice Formation

  1. Ensure Adequate Ventilation:

    • Check that your PerfectDraft machine has enough space around it for proper ventilation. If it's placed in a tight or enclosed space, it may not be able to dissipate heat properly, leading to ice formation. Ensure there is at least 10 cm of space around the machine and avoid placing it near other heat-generating appliances.
  2. Clean the Fan:

    • Over time, dust and debris can accumulate on the fan, reducing its efficiency and causing it to overwork. This can lead to ice forming on the cooling system. To clean the fan:
      • Switch off and unplug your machine.
      • Remove the drip tray and grille.
      • Use a soft brush or cloth to gently clean the fan blades and surrounding area, taking care not to damage any components.
      • Once cleaned, replace the grille and drip tray, and switch the machine back on.
  3. Contact Customer Service:

    • If you've tried these steps and the problem persists, it is recommended to contact the customer service team. They can provide further advice and arrange for a technician to inspect your machine if necessary.

By following these steps, you can often resolve issues with ice forming in your PerfectDraft machine, ensuring it operates smoothly and efficiently.
