I also am using the CM1850, we have several of them in our hospital system. We do not have ice build-up at all in any of them, and we are in a VERY HUMID and VERY HOT Florida. I would suggest using another service rep. Where are you located? I could recommend a great service company in my area.
As a desperate, short-term measure, you could put a cup of desiccant on the back of the work-area plate.
Don't let the Turkeys get you down!

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
recognizes this as "normal ice buildup".
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.
