There could be one of 3 things:

1- The temp sensor on the back of the machine is not working.
2- The auger may be damaged.
3- The pins on the shaft could be covered with product.

    On the torque sensor error there is a small board on the back of the machine it is inline with the shaft, after you clean the shaft pins check the red and white light that the pins cycle between make sure there is no produst on them.

    There is only one compressor and gas system in the 2 bowl slush machine and a solenoid is used to open and close a gas valve to chill the bowels independently. Swap over the solenid valves to see if the fault follows the solenoid.

Fill time to long check water supply

if it takes too long to fill the tank in the machine, check the inlet valve on the bottom. there is a small filter basket just inside. pull it out and remove any debris. if it's taking to long to dispense, delime the dispense valves behind the steel plate behind the hoppers. make sure you unplug the machine and drain the tank first

the word "gourmet" next to the display is a button. hold it down for a few seconds and you'll get into the menu. keep pressing and releasing "gourmet" until you get to "factory reset" and select yes. after that, you'll have to reset all the other settings like the clock and the defrost timer.

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.

go into the menu (hold down the "gourmet" button) and select reset all. then check your mix to make sure it's the proper ratio. too lean will cause it to freeze too fast.
