We purchased a Leica CM1850uv cryostat in 2007 and we constantly have
problems with buildup of ice

on the specimen metal bar.   This causes the tissue to stick to the
stationary heat extractor which causes

significant problems cutting frozen sections.  The engineer has serviced
the machine several times, but

Is anyone else experiencing the same problem, and if so, what are they
doing about it?  Thank you.
