Have several of these machines here. The cube size control and the hot gas valve are common problems. I've had several that had one or the other. Generally if the cubes are forming and not harvesting the cube size control is likely the culprit. If no ice is forming then the hot gas valve may be leaking by or several of my machines have had leaks around this valve. The replacement part is not the same as the OEM part.

The charge is tricky and no access valves on this machine. Weighing in the charge is preferred.

There is a cube size thermostat that energizes the timer. If it has been energizing early try a thicker setting on the cube size. If still gives problems ... your trouble was back in Feb I assume in cold weather.. If the machine is not in a room where the temp stays above 65'f this can also cause premature harvesting as you discribe also. Also if you are loosing water from the water curtian not sealing off it will cause the problem you discribe because the water is dripping off and out before it can freeze. Any futher questions please post. If this helps you understand your trouble please rate me as high as yuou can, thank you for using fixya

Max harvest cycle just keeps it in a harvest longer. if you set the freeze setting to its lowest point and ice is still to thick then replace the freeze stat.

Ice getting to thick and not dumping


go to the freeze timer which has off and on dip switches. take some freeze time out by moving the first switch to off this will shorten freeze time. Also check the harvest assist solenoid and plunger when it go's into harvest. make sure the machine is cleaned and check the cube plate to make sure that none of the plates are not loose this will cause ice to freeze between the loose spots and will not let ice come off the plate.

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.
