DCE33 Ice Machine

Did you every figure out the problem with your Scotsman ice machine. I have the same machine and I think the same problem. It works well, but it never seems able to fill up and thus it runs all the time. My understanding is that it is supposed to only need to run a few hours a day once it fills up.

I believe it was the inlet water valve that needed to be replaced, but I got so fed up with the noise and repairs on this machine that I purchased a Whirlpool ice maker. So far, it's been great. It is much more quiet and produces 50 lbs of ice in 12 hours and shuts off until some of it melts. It only produces more ice about four times a day as it melts.

Check the dump valve if water is seeping through the dump valve then the water inlet valve will be adding water to sump all the time to replace water lost. Now if water is running over sump into ice bin then look at water inlet valve.

Replace the din full sensors this will let the ice machine start up if the sump tray dose not start to fill up with water look at board to see if water full light is on if so replace water sensor that is in water sump tray. if light is not on then check to see if you are getting power to water valve if you are getting voltage to valve then check water filter dose it need to be replaced. now never use any thing other than ice machine cleaner made for ice machines it has to be nickle safe are you will dammage the evaporator plate.

The problem could be a series of things beginning with ambient temperatures too high, fan not working properly, if water cooled there could be a problem with that also. As a technician I would first look over the condenser and make sure air flow is proper and then attach my gauges to see the suction and discharge pressures. I have found many restaurants that keep their ice machines in the hot kitchen where it creates high ambient temperatures and allows grease from the grill to collect on the condenser blocking air flow. Yes under charged is possible or over charged but the best and most effective route is to call a Scotsman Certified Technician. I have worked on Scotsman's and they are very tricky to fix unless you know the process of event. If water is not pre-filtered there is a chance that the water control valve may be stuck open allowing warm water to continue flowing causing these symptoms. Here Is a=> Scotsman CME250 Ice Machine User Manual If unable to find these simple checks above or from the manual and still having problems it will need to be time to call a Technician. If you do not have Adobe Reader Click Here=> Adobe Reader X (10.1.0) Tell me what you find and please don't rate me if I was unable to solve this from here. I am here to help you up and to the point of calling Scotsman for addition help. Thanks, Sea Breeze
