Question about U-Line Icemaker

Ice maker will not drop in time

She has a full gas charge, a chemically cleaned evaporator, a new thermostat and makes a full sheet of ice but doesn't drop all until after the pump comes back on. This ends up eroding the cubes and driving me mad. Any ideas?

Did you clean and dry the unit well? It may be freezing, is the temp correct? Some else suggested spraying the tray with Pam and letting it dry. Just a thought . . .

SOURCE: U-Line undercounter frost free ice maker refrigerator

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?

SOURCE: how to replace the ice maker unit.

I just RR'd mine. Undo the three screws on the bottom of the metal piece that the ice maker sits on, then the two screws that are horizontle above the . Take of the back, withdraw the termocouple from the tube that goes through the foam, clip the wires (5) leaving enough of a pigtail to crimp a **** splice to the new ones. Withdraw the fill tube. Don't lose the clay that seals the holes through the insulation. Withdraw the ice maker by gently twisting and pulling straight out. Replace in reverse order. Getting the screws back in is a little tricky.

SOURCE: ice maker doesnt eject ice cubes until i

Hello. Turn off the water to the ice maker. Remove the ice cubes, use a blow dryer to dry the mold and then spray the mold with PAM cooking spray. Let that dry and then turn the water to the ice maker back on. Joe

I have a Scotsman SCE170a-1a undercounter ice maker it only freezes in the center of the evaporator. Compressor , fan and water pump all work. I suspect the hot gas bypass valve.


no if the valve was open or part open the plate would be warm or hot to the touch and no ice would form, more likely low refrigerant charge or restriction of gas flow and also make sure condenser is very clean.

Machine is making a solid sheet/block of ice on the evaporator plate and no cubes are dropping. The sheet just keeps freezing larger and larger. Any trouble shooting to perform? Top off The R404a?


your evaporator should not be covered with thick slab of ice. If it is, the ice serves as an insulator and the freezer temps will not go down to the required 10 degrees or so for the icemaker to operate properly. if ice is forming on the evaporator then the self defrost cycle is fubar - check the defrost timer and/or heat element for operation.

Charging refrigerator is not recommended since the amount of refrigerant is extremely critical for correct operation- not like an AC unit.. Check all else before low refrigerant can be blamed.

Have a scottsmanicemachine doesnt drop ice compressor on water on water runs on coils goes to harvest but makes no ice coil usualy have a ice buildup before it harves


The water runs over the evaporator coil(plate) until the ice gets thick enough, than when the ices touches a switch for the thickness you have it set for, it to go into harvest and the hot gas from the liquid line goes through the evaporator making the ice fall. If you are not making ice, it is the refrigeration system not working, so check the refrigerant, compressor etc like you would on any refrigerator or freezer

If it is going into harvest but the ice is to thick causing it to stick and not letting it drop then you need to adjust the ice thickness sensor it dose not need to be no more distance than 1/8 of an inch between face of sensor and evaporator plate you can use a 1/8 drill bit flat between sensor face and ice plate use a 1/4 nut driver to adjust the sensor.

Ice maker just stopped making ice. had no problem up to a complete stop


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off make sure the water in door still works. If it does not work suspect the door / light switch.
Next make sure the freezer temp is below 16 Deg F. The ice maker has a thermostat that starts the ice harvest / fill cycle and if the freezer is warming up because of automatic defrosting problems (Ice build up on the evaporator coils) the ice maker will never cycle. If you note an ice build up in the back of the freezer compartment or poor air flow from the evaporator fan you have an automatic defrosting problem. If the fan is not running at full speed the bearings or windings on the evaporator fan are failing and there is not enough air flow to get the freezer to @ or Below 16 F.

Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer and the condenser fan in the rear bottom of the unit are running un-obstructed. (clean as necessary.... but if the front of the cabinet is hot to the touch then the condenser coils my be clogged with lint or... the condenser fan is not running full speed.

The ice maker may be cycling but it may not be filling with water. If it is cycling but your not getting any water.... at all the prime suspect is the solenoid on the inlet water valve. The water valve is not repairable.

Make sure that the rubber fill tube on the back of ice maker is not blocked with ice... squeeze the end of the tube. If it is frozen with ice... the inlet water valve is bypassing water off cycle and causing the tube to freeze up. The only remedy for this is to replace the inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Push the white paddle in three times slowly within 15 seconds. Then wait 2 minutes. You should see the ice maker start to cycle. If the ice maker doesn't cycle, replace the ice maker. If you need a new ice maker, you can go to the link below

The Hoshizaki km450wmb ice maker freezes, but does not drop the ice. The line going back to the compressor ices over as well as the lines going through the cube maker area.


Here are a couple of reasons this may be happening.
1: Unit needs to be chemically cleaned to remove lime and scale build up.
2: the hat gas valve that is used to warm plate and release ice is not working properly.

Crosley side by side ice maker makes to much ice !!!!!!


Most ice makers have a wire bar that senses when the ice bucket is full. The bar lifts up when new ice is made. The ice maker determines if the ice bucket is full by lowering the bar back down after the ice drops into the bucket. If the bar hits the ice cubes in a full bucket, the ice maker shuts off. If the bar drops all the way and dosen't touch ice cube, the ice maker continues making ice until the bucket is full.

So you likely have one of the following problems:
1) The wire bar is missing or bent. Check to make sure that when the bar is pushed up, the ice maker stops making ice. Most bars will 'click' into the up position so you can shut the ice maker off. Push the bar up until it clicks into the up position and wait overnight to see if it makes more ice. If there is no wire bar over the ice bucket, that is your problem.

2) The switch the wire bar is connected to is malfunctioning. If you push the wire bar up and the ice maker continues to make ice, this is likely your problem. You will need a new ice maker unit. Try Appliance Parts Pros or EBay for a new unit.
