Hi!

Please check whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check.

Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks

    If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:



    • Msure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


    • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.


    • The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace

    Please rate the above solution.

    Thanks

Need to know how to fix a csw 45 Scotsman ice making machine


Hi, first make sure the switch is not in the clean position but to on. If it is in the on position and the water is circulating over evaporator plate and is running back into the water sump tray and compressor is running as you stated then check to make sure the hot gas valve is not letting hot gas leak through during freeze cycle, the way you can check is after start up wait about 5 minutes and check the temp entering the hot gas valve and the temp on the other side of the valve if temp is the same then valve is bad. The next thing to check is the refrigerant level this only can be done by adding service valves and weighing out the charge to see if it is low, if low then there is a leak. The freeze cycle is as follows. The compressor, fan motor and water pump are all operating and stay in a freeze cycle until the evaporator thermistor reaches 6.5 deg F. That signals the control board to place the unit into a harvest cycle.

I have kenmore freestanding ice machine. Water flow fine, will not cool. Can I add free on and if so where


You do not add freon to these units, they are sealed, no access ports installed from the manufacture. If you are actually low on freon than you have a leak and will just end up in the same place you are now. Some things to note since you have not posted a model number. Does the water come into the reservoir when you first turn it on? Does the water circulate over the freeze plate shortly after it's done filling? Is your condenser coil on the bottom behind the toe plate completely clean of dust? With the toe plate off are all of the components running, like the compressor, and fan motor after your fill time has expired? Please add a complete model number from the sticker on the unit for better advice. Pleazer Appliance...

1 minute fill cycle,harvest cycle 3.5minutes water still filling the reservoir and down to a pan drain by the time reach the freeze cycle water seem to be in normal flow but the damage its been done before...


look for a stuck or otherwise malfunctioning water fill valve. one way to check, turn the machine off and see if the water is still running to fill it. start with that and let me know.

Machine runs cold water but will not make ice, pump runs and everything else works.


Check the condenser coil to make sure it is cleaned out, also make sure the condenser fan is no dropping out. Next check to make sure the water fill valve is not seeping water past into the sump tray if so than it will not freeze, Water will get cold but not cold enough to freeze check water temp in sump tray with a thermometer to make sure it is getting down to 32 deg.

Add Water issue on Edgestar icemaker


This also applies to the Igloo ICE102.

There is a sensor at the water outlet which fills the ice-making trough, which appears to be poorly assembled. The fix is quite easy.

Remove the rear cover by removing six screws located underneath the unit at the back and sides. Keep the ice-maker upright at all times, per user instructions.

Once you have gently pried the back cover off, remove the top cover and hinged lid by removing two screws on each side, located underneath the top rim.

With the top off, you can see the water outlet at the back left side. Above the inlet is the offending sensor, which has a metal prong angled down. This prong must touch the water stream to detect the flow, but is probably too high. You can check this by filling the unit with water and turning it on. Watch the water as it fills the trough. With the tip of a screwdriver, bend the metal tip down so that it touches the water stream. Run the unit for a while to test.

If everything is ok, then reassemble and enjoy!

Thanks to jimbo from Tampa who provided the hint for this fix.

GE Monogram Ice Maker makes ice, unit doesn't cool enough


This model Icemaker makes ice by flowing water across a freeze plate. It is located in the top of the unit behind the white cover directly below the ON/OFF/CLEAN switches. After freezing a sheet of ice it releases and slides to the cutting grid. It then drops into the ice bin and begins to melt and the whole process starts over again. The level of ice in the bin is controlled by the high level sensor on the right side of the ice bin. It is a whit tube with two wires coming out of the top. Without this sensor it can overrun the bin capacity. Bottom line this unit does not freeze ice, it only holds it like cooler does.

New install


The machine is suppose to start filling, then after 45 seconds or so turn on in the harvest mode then when the temp gets where the sensor says its suppose to be it starts to freeze.

If water keeps coming out the over flow the water valve may be stuck open and this is why you can't make ice its letting in warm water all the time. Try turning the water off to it and see if it freezes a batch. If so replace the water inlet valve or remove and clean it

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.
