This is usually an indication that the photo eyes are probably dirty. They "See" across the opening where the ice drops through. If they are dirty, it registers as a fill machine.
A bin stat can cause the same problem.
The eyes and sometimes be a major problem finding them getting to them. On smaller machines like this one, it's hard to get your hands on them.
Good Luck and hope this helps.

What is causing Scotsman icemaker to moan

perhaps it's unhappy? I can't say i blame it, if I had to sit there all day in the freezing cold making ice I would moan too.
here's a list of possible problems
If it makes excessive noise:-
Problem and Likely Causes/ Probable Solutions

Fan blade vibrates Blade is bent Replace fan blade

Fan motor mount is broken Replace motor mount

Compressor vibrates Mounting loose Check mounting

Water pump vibrates Pump bearings worn Replace pump

Panels vibrate Mounting screws loose Tighten screws

and ice can groan as it expands, but that only applies to large icebergs

It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.
