Manitowoc QY0324A strange problem

I have a manitowoc QY0324A that worked fine before not working.The board just got replaced and the machine cleaned.The cycle seems to be ok besides the fact that it goes into harvest after a couple of minutes and obviously doesn't make any ice. Before anyone asks, I unplugged the water pump and made sure the evaporator froze up. Also the new board bulletin says NOT to wire the water level sensor and I tried that but then the water doesn't switch of... any ideas ??? I'm all out ! thanks

Hello Tom,

I see where ya said the water dispenser works good and thats cool! when you do get the i/m to run the ice harvest cycle are the cubes full size? if yes the water supply can be ruled out as a possibility. Besides the water not seeming as cold are other things in the fresh food compartment NOT as cold as they are not as cold as in the past,if yes try removing the grill below the doors and clean the dust from the coil there,if it isn't there its the rear of the ref. by the compressor. One of the first things to be affected when a ref is working hard to keep things cool due to a dusty coil is going to be the icemaker,it will freeze the ice but the internal thermostat inside of the i/m module isn't satisfied its cold enough to start the harvest. When jumping out the T&H what exactly your doing is jumping the t-stat regadrless of the temp. of it ,causing it to run a harvest cycle

I hope this answer helps you,
Gene

I HAVE A MANITOWOC QM30A ICE MACHINE. WILL THE LIQUID LINE THERMISTOR CAUSE IT TO RUN BUT NOT MAKE ICE?


Liquid line sensor on ice machines in general is used in conjunction with the control boards to determine defrost and harvest cycles. You could measure the line temp and chech the resistance of the sensor to check it.

I have a model qd0452a manitowoc and it will not stop making ice


Very unusual for one of these to not stop. There is a magnetic proximity switch located on the bottom right side of the water curtain that serves to both cancel a harvest/drop and to shut the unit down on a full bin. When a drop occurs the control board sees a open and then close of the switch and restarts a freeze mode. If the ice drops and the bin is full the curtain is blocked by the ice behind it from closing again and the unit shuts down on a full bin indication. If the curtain does not open and close after 3 hours it would lock the unit out. Therefore I assume that the switch and the board are working. Most likely you either have the unit on a non-Manitowoc bin or are missing a deflector plate in the Manitowoc bin and the ice is falling out of a service door.

When a Manitowoc goes into clean mode,It stays in clean mode until it finishes.If you turn it off and then on again,it just keeps cleaning.Let it run in cleaning mode until it finishes

Manitowoc QY1304A Ice Machine Compressor will not start


Does the compressor make any noise at all?

You can ohm out the compressor windings. I dont know off the top of my head which compressor manufacturer they are using but if it is Copeland you can get an electrical handbook and it will have ohm values for the compressor. If not assume the rule of thumb Common to Run is X, Common to Start is Y, Start to Run is X+Y, and Y should be 3 to 5 times whatever X is. On Rx10,000 scale check each terminal to ground should be open.

Manitowoc ice machine that will not produce ice


This is odd that Manitowoc is listed on a page showing a Whirlpool refrigerator model and number. What is the model number listed on your Manitowoc? Not the base model number. The number listed inside the top section. Manitowoc has a really good service reputation. Their control boards have a series of self diagnostics. Get me your model and we will go from there.

ICE CUBE WATER FLOW IS LOW


This is a Manitowoc model QY0214A. The water tough starts to slush up after about 3 minutes after start up cycle. The slush prevents water from flowing to the pump for circulation.
