You need to descale the water circuit according to manufactures instructions. Scale build up keeps the ice from releasing during harvest cycle. If overall ice thickness is to thick, rotate the ice bridge thickness screw at the top of the platen countercloclwise about 1/8 of a turn max between freeze cycles until desired thickness obtained. If you do not know the correct descale solution alway use a nickel safe descaling solution.

SOURCE: Scotsman CM250AE Ice Machine tech help

Check the bridge size adjustment at the top of the metal grid that the ice forms on. This determines the size of the cubes. Whenever you make a repair on the water system, especially on an older unit. make sure the unit is clean. A little bit of calcium deposits (or that other nasty looking stuff) getting into the passage ways will make it run erratically, and can drive you nuts.

SOURCE: Scotsman cme 506ae-1a harvest to soon. Where is

The water float rod in front of the unit serves as the fill stop as well as the harvest initiate. Difficult to remove to clean really well but not impossible. Harvest time is handled by the controller. First two or three harvests are long as the controller times out the harvests based on the blinking light of the bin full indication. After that is should get shorter.

WHY scotsman iec machine shuts down on the refridgeration light ON CM3 CONT


Is the machine producing ice thick enough to come off the evaporator plate? the machine will try to harvest 3 times before it locks out on long harvest. Harvest cycle: The compressor and hot gas valve are both powered during the harvest cycle. The fan and pump are off at this time. The machine stays in the harvest cycle until the evaporator thermistor senses 52 DEG F. If the bin is not full, the unit goes into another freeze cycle. I would check the Thermistor

Scotsman CM3 does not harvest and does not refill


Remove the ice thickness probe that is hanging at the top of the evaporator plate and clean really good put it back push the freeze tab. If the ice is still getting to thick and not causing the machine to go into a harvest then replace the probe , make sure when you do this to set the thickness by using a 1/8 inch drill bit, lay the bit flat between the evaporator plate and the probe turn the 1/4 screw in or out to achieve the 1/8 inch. The probe is what sets the machine into a harvest, if the ice is not building up enough to cause the water to come into contact whit the probe long enough then it will not go into a harvest. if the ice is getting to thick and the water should be running over the probe it should have went into a harvest if not then the probe is not sensing it to tell the CM3 to go into a harvest.

Sce170a-1a wont harvest


This machine has a cube size control. Which tells the machine when to go into a harvest. there is a harvest switch did you try to force it into a harvest and if you did, did it harvest. depending on ambient temperature from start of freeze cycle to harvest it should be making ice every 15 to 18 minuets and then go into a harvest. so start the ice machine and time it , run it for 18 minuets and force into a harvest. after ice drops check the ice bridge thickness. Bridge thickness should be about 3/16'' the ice dimple must not be DEEPER than 1/16". If this is good then we need to look at what is not working to harvest ice. The cube size control is a reverse - acting thermostat that controls the start of the timed freeze cycle. It must be set properly to prove the correct size cube bridge. When it is closed, an indicator light on the control board will be on. If you force it into a harvest and it harvest the ice with no problems and the ice is at the right thickness then replace the cube size control, but if dose not harvest the ice and you see the ice is at a good thickness and not to thick because if it is to thick it will freeze to every thing and will not drop. SYMPTOM. Unit freezes, but will not try to harvest. POSSIBLE CAUSE: Cube size control will not close; to check: Unplug water pump, switch unit OFF and then ON, in about 2 minutes the timed freeze light on the control board should be ON. PROBABLE FIX: If timed freeze light does not go ON, replace cube size control. SYMPTOM #2: Timed freeze light glows, but after 4 minutes unit dose not power hot gas nor purge valves Then replace control board.

Water keeps running on cm3


Replace the ice thickness sensor hanging on the front of the evaporator plate. when you turn the power off and back on factory default is to go to harvest first. if the ice thickness sensor dose not sense the ice is thick enough then it will not go into a harvest. before you replace the sensor take it loose from the evap plate and drop it into the water sump tray if it goes into a harvest then replace the board. if not then replace the sensor.

Scotsman cme506ae that runs through 3 cycles then quits working says refrigation light comes on ice is really thick on plates?


Pull the front cover and see what error code it is locked out on. sounds like long harvest. if so it will try 3 times to harvest and the it will lock out until you power the unit off and then back on. check the ice thickness sensor hanging on the front of the evaporator plate. pull if out and clean it really good put it back and check the distance between the plate and the sensor with a 1/8 inch drill bit you can achieve this buy screwing the 5/16 screw on the sensor in or out. start machine up watch as it makes ice. watch the board you will see a spot marked harvest ready it will blink on and off while water comes in contact with it. It will come on and stay on when water is in full contact with it for about 1 minuet then it should go into harvest and dump ice. If the light never comes on and you can see the water is flowing over the sensor then replace the sensor.
