Food cart kitchen prep cooler icing up and not keeping food cold


To produce cold air, the evaporator needs to be free of ice so that air can flow past the cold fins. Often the thought is to turn the dial and make it colder, but this actually makes it worse as the fins ice up quicker. Turn the unit off until fully defrosted. Turn the temperature knob half way and switch the unit back on. Alter the dial so you achieve a temperature of 4'C. Also putting warm food in the unit will cause condensation on the fins. Also, hot humid weather can do the same.

Check to make sure the condenser coil is clean, fan motor is running during freeze cycle. High Ambient temp, Ventilation, The higher the temperature entering the condenser coil the higher the head pressure. Fan motor failure, pressure switch failure. The cut out pressure varies 400, 450 or 500 PSIG. Water supply failure. not enough water running over the evaporator plate will cause high presser.

Can`t get scotsman cme250 to work properly. either doesn`t make ice or won`t harvest ice. when cube size thermostat is turned up so it makes ice it takes long time to start forming cubes. electrical...


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

KITCHEN AID REFRIGERATOR PROBLEM We bought a used Kitchen Aid fridge YKSRS22Q (1993), the ice maker is not working but water does work. What should we check to see why the ice maker doesn't work?


Ice makers work off of temperature. If it's not cold enough in the freezer it won't work. Check the temperature with a thermometer, it should be 0 to +10F

If the freezer temperature is freezing or below, as it should be, you should be getting ice. I would place a thermometer in the freezer to check the temperature. It would take a while for your frozen good to thaw out in a 33 degree freezer, but ice would not form in your icemaker at that temperature. Set your temperature lower after checking.
