Cannot keep the ice in the ice bin for long
This ROVSUN commercial ice machine has a considerable drawback over its ice bin. Once, we noticed that we did not use ice from its ice bin for nearly an hour, but when we went forward to take some ice, the ice cubes had melted off. A word of advice never let ice stay in its ice bin. Always use them quickly since this ice maker doesn’t have any system to keep the ice frozen for long.
