Warranty outside South Africa

For exported machines the warranty is limited to 12 months covering replacement of faulty parts only. We will request that the faulty part be returned to South Africa and upon receipt we will despatch the replacement.
Transport costs for the replacement parts are not covered under the Scotsman warranty, however if the machine is returned to our workshops labour will be supplied free of charge, with the exception of ice flakers which carry a six month labour cover only.
Travelling and transport costs are not covered under Scotsman warranty.


Please remember the machine has moving parts and regular servicing of the equipment at least annually is highly recommended.
Servicing is not covered by warranty. Should your machine be dirty and in need of servicing the technician will advise you. Failure to service regularly may affect the validity of your ice maker.
Scotsman Ice Systems warranty excludes defects due to external reasons for example:
1. Exposure to chemicals, chemical vapours or any other agents.
2. Electrical supply power failure or incorrect wiring or power surges.
3. Water supply failure or pluming problems for any reason.
4. External drain line malfunctions.
5. Failure to clean and maintain as set forth in the products manual.
6. Installation not in accordance with the products manual.

Water filters

We highly recommend purchasing water filters to fit on the incoming water line. The reduction of scale deposits in the water system will reduce maintenance costs and prolong the life of your icemaker.
