Need technician to repair commercial ice machine

by Robin Garr » Sun Jan 31, 2016 4:06 pm

We have a commercial ice machine with, apparently, a problem with the fan that's a key part of the freezing system. Can any of you refer us to a local quality technician? Extra credit if they'll offer a good price to a small non-profit organization. 8)

We have used Apple Appliance for over 20 years. I have found their prices to be reasonable, I cannot say if they will lower them. I know they do commercial work.

I've also had good experiences with Apple Appliance.

Robin I know a few people from my church who work at Vittitow Refridgeration. Locally owned with offices on poplar level. Great folks that work there, may be worth a look.

Mike across the river at Allrite Food Equipment knows his way around kitchen equipment and always asks a fair price.

Thanks, Suzi.

Is that Apple Appliance and Refrigeration Service, 1149 S Shelby St, (502) 635-2450? I'll pass it on. Anyone else? This is one of those good-size units, about the size of a small refrigerator, with a door that opens into a big bin where you scoop out the ice ...

Noted with respect. Now I'm curious about two thumbs up and one thumb down, though. Can we get you guys talking? :)

I had months of personal heartache with those guys. There is simply no reason.

Yeah, that is the address and phone number. I have always had good experiences with Apple. They have fixed refrigerators, washers, dryers, freezer and installed and serviced my HVAC since we moved to this house. They have told me when it is fixable and when it is time to get a new one. I can only speak to our experience, your mileage may vary.

Thanks, Suzi. I guess it goes to show you, one bad experience (like Nora's) can leave a bad taste that lasts for a long time.

I'm really hoping for a commercial shop with specific experience in things like large ice machines, though.

Robin I know Vittitow is in the business of specifically selling and repairing ice machines. I believe they have sourced some of the local third wave coffee shops around here w their ice machines such as sunergos, quills, etc.

Hello Robin. I had good experiences with Mr. C refrigeration. They have been in business since 1980 and have experience in all types of commercial units. They offered good prices and were very personable.
