    The nice man at fixice.com told me the solution. My problem was the sensor clips on the drip pan on top of the compressor.

    The wires on the one of the clips were shorting out. As soon as I lifted the clip off of the pan the alarm stopped. Although my pan was dry except for a tiny bit of water in the bottom it was shorting by just touching the side of the pan. I didn't want to leave it unclipped in case it ever did overfill so I rigged the clip on so that the bare wire was not touching the sidewall but was inside the pan so it could sense an overfill. Thank you nice man at fixice.com!

SOURCE: FranklinChef FIM35 Not making ice

I drained the water from the plug on mine and it started to work. The black plastic crew plug about 2 inches from the bottom of the unit, there is a rubber stopper you have to pull out.

I have a franklin chef fim400 ice maker that cycles but will not make ice. What could be wrong?


you may want to add shader valves using saddle type that just compresses on and check charge if low then find and repair leak and recharge but be careful these type ice machines are very touchy on charge so go slow

FIM70 Makes ice but does not drop. Forms large block of ice over cups.


don't know if you solved this, but we had a similar situation.
Leave the machine off until all the ice melts off the cups.
You need to take off the front cover and adjust the sizing down a good quarter turn. Let it start making ice and make sure all the ice drops. If it doesn't size it down more. If it all drops and the ice is too thin, turn it up VERY little (2° or so). Keep adjusting until you get the size you want but still get all the ice to drop.

Franklin FIM35 continues water alarm even days after water drained.


I searched and searched for a fix and here was mine. The sensor wire was shorting out on the drip pan (which was not wet to the touch) above the compressor causing the alarm. I removed the clip and re-rigged it so the bare wire is not touching the sidewall but is positioned so that it could still sensor and alarm in an actual overfill.
