Unplug and remove 4 screws from front of cover and see if the cam is not broken. every time it dumps ice this cam raises the bar to shut off ice making if the bin is full. may be it just slipped?

The machine will make a couple of cycles of ice then stop. If i turn it off to clean then turn it on it will work for a few more times but then stop again. Any ideas?


Sounds like the bin switch. If it stays in the open position then the machine thinks it is full of ice and go to automatic shut down.

Scotsman ice maker, short freeze code no ice


Unit shuts down on minimum freeze time.
Check for: 1. Grounded ice thickness sensor.
Correction: Check sensor for dirt and position, clean and check gap to evaporator surface.
2. Dirty air filters: ( clean or replace air filters)
3. Dirty condenser: ( Clean condenser)
4. Hot ambient: ( Reduce room air temperature )
5. Water leak: ( Check purge valve, Check curtain )
6: Water inlet valve leaks water through. ( Replace or rebuild water inlet valve.

Ice maker stopped working


run service test with volt meter hooked up to the two terminals on water valve if you get a 110 volts to water valve when it is called for and water valve dose not open then the valve is bad. make sure the water valve screen in the end of it is not stopped up.

Model b198 makes one batch then stops


Check the bin arm spring you will have to disassemble the front of the ice maker to do this and check timer motor could be getting hung up. not a cleaning problem. or replace the complete head.

My uline BCM45A ice maker is cold but does not make ice


This unit work on the thermostat. When the temperature gets between 10 - 15 degrees it will satisfy the control then turn the compressor off and icemaker will advance. If the control is set too cold then it will never satisfy the control. 1st make sure the thermostat is at the warmest setting. When the compressor cycles off look to see if the icemaker is advancing.If no then replace the control.

Ice maker won't shut off when full


check the Shutoff Arm:

An arm extends away from the ice maker over the ice cube bin. During each ice making cycle, the arm rises up and then drops back down after the new ice is dumped into the ice cube bin. As ice accumulates in the bin it prevents the arm from dropping back down. When the arm is high enough, the ice maker shuts off and no more ice is made until the ice level in the bin drops.
The ice maker can also be turned off manually by lifting the arm all the way up into a locked position (shown belowef280e4.jpg

The arm is supported at one or both ends. One end extends into the back of the front support (see photo above). If it is not securely in place, it could cause the ice maker to malfunction. Confirm that the arm is securely in place.
For proper operation, confirm that arm is in the lowered position and that nothing is blocking it from normal movement.
To test the shutoff function, lift the arm up into the manual shutoff position. Recheck the unit later to confirm that no ice is being made.
If unit continues making ice even when the shutoff arm is in the up (off) position, refer to the diagnostic table or for a modular ice maker, replace the control module.

check the Shutoff Switch:

Before testing the shutoff switch, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver.

Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. Component units (like the one shown below) usually have exposed gears and don't have holes for test probes.
Modular units do not use a separate shutoff switch. Instead follow this link to view instructions for checking the shut off arm.

Water runs, but no ice being made.


check if the fan near the condenser is still running.
check also the lever if it is in the down position. if it is in the up position, that means you turn off the ice maker.
check if there is frost on the freezer, if it is cooling very well.

keep me posted,
