Question about Ice Cream Makers
I will be replacing a broken drive gear. There is some thick black grease that was used initially I bought it in 1992 and this is the first time it as been taken apart. Does anyone have any suggestions for 1, the type of grease to use for the gear and 2, whether to put grease on the belt, as well? Also, there is an admonition about keeping the machine upright. I worked from the bottom to expose the drive train and could replace it in the same manner, although, obviously it would be easier with the machine on its back. Does this have something to do with the refrigerant? If not, what?
The grease is most likely a lithium based grease. If there is absolutely no chance of it coming in contact with the product. If there is a chance it contacts the food then it has to be a food based grease. Never lube a belt! The reason that you are not supposed to lay the unit flat is because the cooling systems have oil in the coils along with the refrigerant. When laying it down, the oil can move into the expansion tube and cause it to plug up and make the compressor fail. You can lay it down, just don't start it for 24 hours after you stand it back up. This allows the oil to drain back down.
