Question about U-Line Icemaker
We purchased a used U-Line CLR60 icemaker. The icemaker produces ice properly and functions well. The only problem is that it will NOT stop making ice. There doesn't appear to be a "trip arm", so I'm assuming the item that looks like a silver "probe" located near the top of the ice bin on the left hand side is supposed to stop ice production. Any suggestions? Could the probe need to be replaced?

If you clean the machine (consult your owners manual on how to do this) this will take care of your problem. Cleaning it is more than just wiping it out. There is cleaner that you must use. U-Line uses a powdered cleaner that you can purchase on line.

All units made today have defrost timers to clear ice from the evaporator. Some of the ice sublimates...turns directly into humidity in the air in the box. It re-condenses in the ice tray area. It is possible that nothing is wrong other than excessive opening of the bin area or the defrost timer is running slow and staying on too long. You may also be consuming the ice too slowly. Can you either change the amount of ice in the bin by adding something to simulate part of the ice content or shut off ice production against low demand?

First thing to do is find the temp in the bucket. Should be between 10-15 degrees. If its colder then try turning the thermostat to a warmer setting. If its warmer than this then the unit is not getting cold enough. Look at the cendenser to make sure that its clean. If thats good you might have to check the thermostat. (if its 10-15 deg) Check the wiring. red goes on terminal1 yellow on 2 and blue /black on 3. The control might not be switching to harvest position. Wait until you hear the compressor and fan shut down then look at the icemaker. If not advancing then replace the thermostat.

if the ice production is slow first try to set it on a warmer temperature. Now if its frosted up then you will need to defrost it. Also check the fan to see if its running. if yes is the condensor clean? If yes then check temperature in bucket. 10 to 15 degrees is ideal for this model.

You need to check to see if the compressor is running and the fan is running. If both are then you need a new unit. The 45A has the r12 refrigerant in it and you wont be able to get parts for a r12 system. U-line makes a BI95 to replace that model. If the fan isnt running then I would replace the fan. If nothing is running then it could be a bad thermostat but first make sure the ejector blade on the icemaker is at the 12 oclock position.

If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, please check these, in this order:
It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
Also make sure 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 it.
Should these suggestions prove to be ineffective, contact a professional to diagnose the unit.
