I've worked with 4 of these units, two had the problem, two didn't. Long story short, the problem won't go away until you have the Peltier unit replaced. That is not normal ice buildup.

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

We manually defrost the unit 2-3 times a day, but it does not seem to
Is anyone else experiencing the same problem, and if so, what are they
doing about it? Thank you.
