Well it is making ice cubes alright just too thick right? I would give it a good cleaning with nickleguard and retry. If it is still doing the same thing I would replace the ice thickness switch.

The older cubers were opperated by a cube size thermostat. when the temp reached the cube size tstat setting it would energize a harvest timer motor and this timer would continue running through a holding switch on the timer. when the cam comes around and the micro switch drops the water is introduced (it would be warm) and the hot gas from the refrigerant would be introduced to the evaporator causing the cubes to drop. at the end of the cycle the cam pushes op in the holding switch and finally open it and because the cube size tstat is now warm the timer motor stops.
The timer had a white plastic stem with a 1/4" D shaft. It would only turn clockwise. Try looking for this and advancing it to see if your sol valve will open or get voltage to the valve.

SOURCE: I have a new DCE33 scotsman ice machine. No spray small flow

Could be in need of cleaning with some nickleguard ice machine cleaner. Or maybe a restriction in the pump? How about a scotsman repair manual?

I have both. Hope this one is it

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.

WHY scotsman iec machine shuts down on the refridgeration light ON CM3 CONT


Is the machine producing ice thick enough to come off the evaporator plate? the machine will try to harvest 3 times before it locks out on long harvest. Harvest cycle: The compressor and hot gas valve are both powered during the harvest cycle. The fan and pump are off at this time. The machine stays in the harvest cycle until the evaporator thermistor senses 52 DEG F. If the bin is not full, the unit goes into another freeze cycle. I would check the Thermistor

Refrigeration code on scotsman ice machine model cme506as-32f.What could be the cause?


Unit is off& Refrigeration diagnostic light is on or blinking. Possible Cause,( Low discharge or long freeze cycle. Probable correction, if the Refrigeration light is glowing steadily there is a probable refrigeration problem.) 2. Possible cause. Harvest problem. Probable Correction. If refrigeration light blinks once and repeats, Look for a harvest Problem.**On Controllers 17-1 and higher, This also indicates that cubes were (sensed) by the bin controls. 3. Possible Cause. Hot gas valve failure, Probable Correction. Check hot gas valve operation. 4. Possible Cause, High Discharge Temp. Probable Correction, If the refrigeration diagnostic light blinks 3 times and then repeats, check for a reason for high discharge temperatures. 5. possible Cause, Harvest problem. Probable Correction, Controllers 17-1 and higher, if the light blinks 2 times and repeats, check for a harvest error- no cubes sensed. 6. Possible Cause, Unit dose not go into harvest - exceeds maximum freeze time. Probable Correction, Push and release off button. Push and release Freeze button. Check operation. next Push cube size float down and check operation. 7. Possible Cause, Exceeds maxi harvest time. Probable Correction, Check for cause of long harvest cycle. Try not to put any gauges on system until you have to. Every time you do you loose refrigerant out of the system.

Model CME256AS-1D will not go back into freeze cycle and will eventually stop, requiring the unit to be reset.


So is the unit going into a harvest and not going back to a freeze cycle? dose it dump a batch of ice but wont go back into a freeze cycle? before you reset it have you pulled the front cover to see what code it is giving? any time you have to reset it that means it locked its self out on a fault. if unit freezes and go's into a harvest and dumps the ice but dose not go back into freeze cycle check the door switch when the ice dumps the deflector door opens a magnetic switch which tells the board the harvest has finished and then the freeze cycle begins. Now if there is no ice falling off the plate to open the door then the board will time out and try 3 more times to make ice before it locks it out. the same go's for the harvest.

Scotsman cme256 as-1d sticks in harvest cycle


The only thing that tells the machine that a harvest cycle has completed and takes it back into a freeze mode is the ice level control. when the machine go's into a harvest the ice drops through the ice level control and brakes the beam and switches the machine back to freeze cycle. Pull the the ice level controls and replace them. if there is nothing wrong with them than it is the electronic controller. part number for ice level controllers are 11-0540-21. The part number for the control board is 12-2838-24

Have you pulled the cover off so you can see the code it is giving really need to know it. sounds like either low charge or hot gas valve not opening during harvest. I really need the code to be able to help you out.

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
