Below is how to care for your Eskimo Joe's machine to ensure you get the best possible performance from it:
Make sure you use Eskimo Joe products:
The equipment is designed to work using Eskimo Joe products. Using our products means your machine will work at peak performance and will provide you with the best quality slush! Using product provided by other suppliers will void your warranty and can result in machine or component failure and poor-quality slush.

Leave enough clear space around your machine:
Your Eskimo Joe's machine requires at least 30cm of clear space each side of your machine, and at least 10cm of clear space at the rear of the machine to function properly. Otherwise your machine can overheat and thus have to work harder to produce slush which will increase your running costs, and eventually the machine will not be able to produce slush at all.
Locate your machine away from heat sources:
Your slush machine should not be installed near a heat source, such as a coffee machine, ice maker, pizza oven, deep fryer, panini press - any machine which produces hot air from its vents or through its operation, causing your slush machine to have to run at a high temperature.
Always use the correct syrup and water mix ratio:
Our machines are designed to operate using the correct syrup and water mix ratio, our ratio means your machine works at peak capacity and creates the best quality slush for your customers! Using either too much water or too much syrup will mean the machine has to work harder to make slush, increasing your running costs.

Always put your machine into overnight mode at night:
Switching your machine into overnight mode is important as it prevents icebergs from forming and damaging the internal parts of your machine. Overnight mode also leads to good quality slush and satisfied customers!
Overnight mode will also prevent your product from spoiling meaning you won't waste any slush that could have otherwise been sold.

Always power your machine as per our guide:
Using the correct power source is very important as it prevents your machine from tripping the power, or overloading and overheating the sockets and saves your machine from damage!
