    the ice machin is a hot gas by pass system there fore the evaporate does not have a heating element

  • stanley_stan Mar 08, 2009

    Its obvious we are not on desame page. lm talking about a commercial manitowoc ice machine that produces over 2,000 lbs. of ice in a 24 hr. period and it sounds like your talking about a refregerator ice maker. lf you are not familiar with this type of problem just say so.

Hi there,

Check your hot gas inlet valve. Is it hot to the touch or cool? Let me know.

    Your hot gas bypass valve is responsible for releasing gas to the evaporator in order to harvest the ice sheet. Obviously for that reason, the solenoid keeps that valve normally closed.



    This is what I would do. Normally it's an electrical problem, but in this case I would check mechanical first.

    Check the solenoid to make sure it's operating.

    If you have voltage to the solenoid then check for a non opening or faulty valve.

    Check the valve to make sure it's not leaking.



    If all this is ok, then check the control. It may not be giving the signal operate the valve.



    Hope this helps.

Either there would have been formation of slush in the water pump or the float/electric solenoid would have been faltered. Please service the ice maker

Ice will become trapped in the teeth of the ice maker during the ejection process. Look for cubes that could be jammed in the icemaker. If found, clear any stuck cubes carefully with a plastic or wooden utensil. Once cleared, the icemaker will reset and resume normal cycling within several hours.

If the evap system that melts the ice is not heating enough to release the cubes, then either the heating element in the evap system is not heating, the fan not working, check the ice maker release system.

How can i fix my manitowoc qm45a runs water but won't freeze the water?


The thickness sensor is shorting, making the machine continually harvest. Clean it and dry it. If it still happens, replace the sensor.

Ice maker Manitowoc QD-0212A


This light is a harvest limit light. This light's primary function is to be on as water contacts the ice thickness probe during the freeze cycle, and remain on throughout the entire harvest cycle. The light will flicker as water splashes on the probe. The lights secondary function is to continuously flash when the ice machine is shut off on a safety limit, and to indicate which safety limit shut off the ice machine. Start up of machine after turned off. !. Before the ice machine starts, The water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to purge old water from the water trough. This ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. The water fill valve energizes after 45 second water purge, and remains on until the water level probe is satisfied. 2. to pre-chill the evaporator, there is no water for the first 30 seconds of the freeze cycle. 3. The water pump starts after 30 seconds pre-chill. An even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into each cube cell.

Some times make ice on regular time and some times make ice but the ice stock on the plate and the water start fill the plate and the ice melt


one of the plate/s is/are loose on the condenser and the ice is freezing behind the plate and is not releasing during the harvest cycle. Solution with a rubber mallet knock the plate/s back or if loose enough pull out completely, you will just have longer cubes of ice. Hope this helps Tim

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.

Ice Cubes won't drop out


The thickness probe should be approximatly 1/4 inch off of the evaporator.Sounds like you might have loose grids on the evaporator.turn the unit off and remove the curtain.use a flash light and inspect the grids.There should not be space in between the joints,if there is the ice will freeze behind the grids and not properly release when in harvest. Also gently pull at the grids,if they pull towards you or wiggle then they are separating. I have removed one of the grids and had the unit continue to run for sometime until the evaporator could be replaced.The plating being spotty causes release issues as well.Finally check the level of the machine,front to back and side to side.Not being level will also cause release problems
