Edit: Henan Tianchi Instrument Equipment Co., Ltd    Date:2017-08-14
1.Empty and unplug.
Remove any ice that may be left in your Commercial Ice Maker Machine and unplug it from the wall. Its important that the unit is empty before starting the cleaning process.Obviously, unplugging the unit from the wall will help keep any safety issues at bay.
2.Remove the ice tray.
Pull the ice maker's ice tray out from the inside and put it off to the side. For most units, you should be able to just unhook it remove the tray. Put the tray on a clean surface off to the side.
3.Wipe it down.
Wipe off the interior of the unit using a soft cloth. Make sure to hit all the walls, as this is a target area for build up among many different ice machines. If your ice maker is especially dirty, put two tablespoons of vinegar on the cloth to help further clean an impurities and buildup that has worked its way into your icemaker. This can also help to remove excess calcium build-up caused by running hard water through the machine.
4.Clean the tray.
Wipe down the tray in the same manner as the interior of the portable ice maker. Be sure to scrub it well to ensure any build up is removed. As with the interior, you're welcome to use a small bit of vinegar to ensure proper cleaning.
5.Run a cleaning cycle.
Run the portable ice maker for a couple of cycles with a small amount of vinegar. Just a capful will do - you can also use a mixture of lemon juice and water if you used up all your vinegar earlier. This will ensure that any and all calcium build up and impurities are removed completely from the ice machine.
6.Run a normal cycle.
Empty all the water from the ice makers reservoir and run a cycle or two with clean, warm water. This will ensure that any leftover vinegar or impurities have been completely removed from the machine. This can also help remove that plastic taste you might find in newer units, just like the vinegar trick above.
7.Clean the exterior.
Using a soft cloth, wipe down the exterior of the machine. Use some warm water if available, and scrub any dirt or dust that might have latched on to the portable ice maker. This will give your ice machine a clean and healthy look.
