Koolaire Warranty Explanation June 02 2015

Factory warranties can be confusing and it's easy to get lost in the legalese. This article will cover the basics of a Koolaire ice machine warranty and the important parts that will affect your purchase.  From coverage to ease of gaining service, this information should help you make a wise buying decision, when looking at commercial ice makers.

For starters, Koolaire offers the same industry leading warranty as Manitowoc ice machines.  This includes a full 3 years parts and labor that covers the entire ice maker, 5 year parts and labor for the evaporator only, and 5 year parts and 3 years labor for the compressor. But let's talk about what that coverage period actually means.

The warranty coverage for Koolaire starts the day the unit is installed. It's important to fill out your registration card, so that Koolaire knows exactly when this date is. If a warranty card is not filled out, then the factory can only reference the date that the ice maker left the factory. To maximize your coverage, it's important to fill out and mail in the warranty card found with your Koolaire at the time of installation. The warranty coverage also goes with the ice machine, it's not dependent on the owner or location of installation. Koolaire warranty does not require a transfer, if the machine were to be sold within the coverage period.

Christmas Season and Shipping December 17 2014

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from Ice Maker Parts Shop!

This time of year is always busy, for just about everyone.  But thanks to processes we have in place, we ship most Manitowoc ice machine parts same day, if ordered before 3:00 pm CST.  We are also offering free shipping on all of the ice maker parts listed on our website.  None of this will change, but shipping times can tend to get a little wonky.

Freight carriers have a huge back log this time of year, especially USPS.  This means that lead times may be extended, due to transit times.  If your ice machine part is mission critical, I recommend choosing the 3 day select option, to guarantee timely arrival.  Or, if your Manitowoc part is a must have and must have it now, chose the 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air option at checkout.  While this costs a little more than our FREE shipping option, it's the only way to guarantee a shipping date.

Holiday Hours

Ice Maker Parts Shop will not be shipping any packages on December 25th or December 26th.  So please get your orders in early, especially if you want them to arrive before the end of 2014.

Thank you to all of our customers for helping Ice Maker Parts Shop a success in 2014 and we look forward to helping keep you in ice for 2015.
