Check the back of the machine where the big plastic cover is, you will have to remove the 2 screws back there, and the 2 hoppers as well as the metal platform. When you remove the cover you will notice a mountain of product covering the shaft and the little CPU board back there, clean replace shaft seal and bushing and make sure that the red and white lights on the board have no product on them.

The shaft off of the motor has 2 pins spaced apart and both pins go past the led and sensor on the torque board. the variations of the timing of the pins breaking the beam is how the machine know how thick the slush is, thereby starting and stopping the freezing process. if the pins are missing or the led or sensor is missing or dirty, this will cause the error message. if all is well with that, you may need to replace the board.

Why is slush machine only freezing on one side

if it's a cab faby and it's the right side not freezing but getting cold, you have low refrigerant. if it's warm, you have a stuck solenoid, blocked capillary tube, or a bad torque micro switch. if it's a bunn ultra 2, you have a bad solenoid or the freezing button is not on freeze.

How to fix right side torque error

open the back cowling on the side that has the error (might as well do both) and remove the 4 screws that hold the motor mount to the machine. pull the motor back and unplug it. you'll see an optic sensor board to the right of the shaft on the machine. clean off any dust from the sensors with a q-tip or compressed air. there should be 2 pins on the end of the shaft. if there is only one, you need a shaft assembly. reassemble and test it out.

I have a Bunn Ultra 2 machine that is fairly new. Unfortunately it fell off my bar and though cosmetically its fine it has completely stopped chilling on both sides. What is the most likely thing I ned to...

see if the compressor is running. if it doesn't after 4 minutes, may have electrical issue. if it does, check the exhaust air throught the drip tray. if there is none or it's very hot, replace the fan. if it's cool, may have refrigeration leak. if there is a torque error message, the torque boards in the back may be bad. if it fell on it's front, you may have jammed the shaft causing undue torque, thus stopping the call for refrigerant. bottom line, bring it somewhere to get it checked out.

Left grannita auger not turning

press the auger button on the front of the machine. if it's on and not moving, check for an error message. if torque error, clean torque board in the back and check for two pins on the shaft by the motor coupling. if there is one, replace the shaft assembly. make sure the motor is plugged in. if it's on and not moving, replace the motor

Left side error torque

More than likely a bad shaft,Part # 32449.0000.This machine when there is a problem tells you exactly what part went bad.Could also be the torque sensor board,Part #27939.1000.Alot of the problems stem from not lubricating the front nose seal (auger).

Sensor open left side not getting cold and torque sensor says hold ultra button for three seconds

This is going to be a project:
1, the hold for 3 second on the ultra button is for the filter in the back which needs to be clean, then machine needs to know that it is clean so that it can reset counter for the next 3 months.
2, The torque sensor is behind the unit covered by the white or black plastic cover under the powder unit, you will see 2 screws holding cover on. The reason it is getting the error is because the 2 pins on the auger shaft are covered in product or the sensor card is damaged(most likely it is the product issue). You will need to perform a shaft seal maintenance on the machine.

If I already changed de torque sensor and i still have problems with de legen of sensor torque error what cai I do to fix it.

the post that spins in the sensor should have 2 long posts sticking out. the sensor reads these. if one is missing, it won't read the torque correctly. they are long tap screws. also, blow the dust out if there is any.

Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off

I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!

Good Luck!
