The Importance of Cleaning Your Spaceman Frozen Beverage Machine
Maintenance on your Spaceman frozen beverage machine is a straightforward but crucial process to follow. Many of the delicious frozen drinks that are served from your Spaceman frozen beverage machine have high amounts of sugar content – typically 12-20%.
The sugar in your frozen drink mix will build up inside of your Spaceman frozen beverage machine if not properly cleaned on a regular basis. This sugar build up will cause excessive wear on your frozen beverage machine drastically reducing its serviceable lifespan and increasing service costs and downtime.
To ensure that your Spaceman frozen beverage machine is always operating at its best your machine should be cleaned weekly at minimum. If you are using a dairy based product you should refer to your local health code guidelines for cleaning intervals.

Your cleaning procedure should include draining your machine, disassembling all components – Including beater, driveshaft, dispensing door, and drip tray – and washing all parts using warm or room temperature water.
After each disassembly it is important to lubricate all moving parts with Spaceman Food-Grade Lubricant. Do not use other oils or non food-grade lubricants which can cause damage to your Spaceman frozen beverage machine.
Each time you breakdown your frozen beverage machine for cleaning you should be inspecting rubber parts for wear. It is recommended that you replace all seals, gaskets, and O-rings on a quarterly basis. You can find Spaceman frozen beverage machine tune up kits here.
