Problems:

 
The ice isn't shaving or not shaving well.

  • Turn off and redistribute ice in chamber.
  • Ensure lid is completely locked into the locking mechanism switch
  • Is the machine plugged in?
  • Is the shaft locked in position?

The mixing paddle is not turning.

  • Make sure the jug has been turned clockwise to lock the paddle into the machine.

The machine seems to be leaking.

  • Unshaven ice may melt and drip onto the base, giving the appearance of leakage.
    Wipe the base with a soft dry cloth.
 
What to I do if:
 
The ice appears to be "dry" and not like a slushy I have had from other retailers?

The shaved ice is just the starting point for the slushy.
If you add a diluted mixture of appropriate concentrate, fruit juice or soft drink you will reach a slushy drink consistency.
You can also enjoy the treat as it is, with syrup or juice added on top.
I need to cater for large parties or events?

Our ice machines are not suitable for commercial or heavy usage. The capacity of the bowl is 1 (one) Litre.
Continual or heavy usage could cause damage to the motor and impair the usability of the machine.
Can I:
 
Pre-freeze the syrup to use with the machine?

Yes, one of the best ways we have found to make slushies is to pre-freeze the diluted syrup (5/6 parts water with 1 part syrup) in either ice cube trays, or appropriate tupperware containers. Once frozen it is simply a case of feeding this ice through the machine (if tupperware is used, please break the ice into smaller pieces) and top up the ice with a diluted mixture of the same flavour syrup, around 1/3 of the volume (e.g. if you make 1 litre of ice, add 333ml to diluted syrup), to get the best results.
use other frozen liquids in the machine?
Yes, we can say that ciders, fruit juices, frozen cocktails and carbonated soft drinks work well. Simply freeze into cubes or tupperware containers as above.
Please exercise caution when freezing carbonated liquids.
use store-bought ice in the machine?
Store bought ice is much harder than ice frozen at home and as such may not shave as expected.
Whilst you can use shop bought ice or party bags, it is better to use ice cube trays or other method of freezing ice at home.
