Magic chef MCIM30TS table top ice maker shovel breaks

Our magic chef table top ice maker went strong for 2.5 years. Then inexplicably the plastic pin holding the sweep ice shovel blade broke. We purchased a replacement shovel and installed it only to have it break again. This time the shovel blade broke at one of the arms attaching it to the sweep mechanism and after only two weeks of use. Ordered a second replacement. That one broke after three months of use and in the same arm! Part is not under any warranty so I will have to purchase a new one from somewhere. I suspect that something is not aligned properly or that the replacement is not correct. Any solutions (short of purchasing a new ice maker).

    I have the same problem with a broken shovel plastic arm pin but have not replaced the shovel yet. This is the pin that attaches to the arm that is attached to the water tray.

    Very small plastic pin only approx. 2mm in diameter.

    The first time it broke, I took it totally apart and superglued the plastic piece back worked for about 3 months. Now I need a new one again because the next time I take it apart, I want a new piece bacause it took me all night to take it apart and reassemble it.

I took 4 small nails, cut them to the proper length, heated them up with a lighter, and pushed them into the plastic creating 4 metal posts that the motor could push against. Just did it and it is working. Not sure for how long.

have you checked on the fuse and the thermostat of the appliance, because aside from the cooling system, you may want to check on the easy parts first.

i will go further on this, will keep you updated if in case i find more.

Danby icemaker not pumping water

I have the same problem, the ice shovel was catching and not moving forward to shovel the ice, this stopped the ice maker. i have cleaned off the surplus plastic from the molding process (on the underside of the shovel) and this so far has cued the problem.

When the paddle on my machine has stopped rotating it shoots the motor and guard off the top

you are letting the ice cream get to frozen, this should be a soft gelato ice cream, after 20 minutes turn off the top motor a leave on with the freezer unit still working or take out mixture put in tubs and put in freezer, the lid is designed to come off to stop the machine from breaking. Any magimix parts can be bought at
