Cabinet Placement and Premises
The instructions in the cabinet manual should be followed carefully in order to prevent potential problems and to avoid harming the freshness and quality of the ice cream.
Ice cream cabinets should be placed away from heaters and direct sunlight. In this way, increases in temperature and frost build up in the cabinet will be avoided as will excess electricity consumption because it will prevent the cabinet engine from over running.
The grills where the cabinet fan is located should not be blocked or covered and dirt build up on the grills should be avoided.
The cabinet should never be unplugged from a power outlet. Otherwise there is a risk of melting the ice cream. In addition, the engine will overrun in order to bring the cabinet to the previous temperature and will thus consume more power.
Hygienically, it is very important not to have any trash receptacles around the cabinet. Any trash receptacles on the premises should have a lid and should be lined with a trash bag that is changed multiple times a day.
Product cups should be cooled before placing in the cabinets or they have the risk of breaking.
Cabinets should be properly shielded from direct wind,
sunlight, and heat.
Otherwise there is a risk of the products melting or of frost building up.
