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

The manual has an exploded parts diagram use as guide to locate parts.
First check the timer, you can manually turn it through a cycle or watch it rotate on its own.
Check the water inlet solenoid valve. if all looks well and you have definite water flow past the valve, then
Check spray pump. You have to remove the rear panel. The pump has a fan on the top. spin the fan if it is at all tight the ;pump is bad.
I have owned 2 of these units and have had failures of all of the above parts over the years.

Clean the bin eyes found in the back of the ice machine where the shoot narrows. Look on the left and right sides of the unit, you will see plastic vanes that are pushed into rubber grommets. Just pull the eyes out and clean with ice machine cleaner.

Making good ice. Could be cube size control. Could be a weak compressor. Also these machines are household and meant to run in air conditioned space.

The problem could be a series of things beginning with ambient temperatures
too high, fan not working properly, if water cooled there could be a problem
with that also. As a technician I would first look over the condenser and make
sure air flow is proper and then attach my gauges to see the suction and
discharge pressures. I have found many restaurants that keep their ice machines
in the hot kitchen where it creates high ambient temperatures and allows grease
from the grill to collect on the condenser blocking air flow. Yes under charged
is possible or over charged but the best and most effective route is to call a Scotsman
Certified Technician. I have worked on Scotsman's and they are very tricky to
fix unless you know the process of event. If water is not pre-filtered there is
a chance that the water control valve may be stuck open allowing warm water to continue
flowing causing these symptoms. Here Is a=> Scotsman
