Hi there,
if there is low on refregerant,if you have an equiptment to install for charging try to install it,on suction side there charging port,mount the blue hose of charging manifold service gauge and the yellow service charging hose to the r404 refrigerant service valve tank,clamp a clamp ammeter to one line,mostly common line run your ac,take the rated ampere on manuals or on tag at backside of refrigerator,open service valve just crackdown the valve,in charging refrigerant just open a little for 5 to 8 second and closed service valve of a r404 refrigerant tank,repeat until you got the rated ampere on clamp ammeter,you can relay exact amount of refrigerant on rated ampere rating of your a/c.
this should be done by qualified a/c refrigerator technician if you can't do it try to call,on your service manual there is a contact number.have a nice day.regards

Ice-o-matic 400ha2 ice machine wont harvest soon enough / ice to thick

There could be so many things wrong with it to cause this problem from just a dirty machine, bad harvest assist plunger, low freon charge, bad hot gas valve. You really need to call a service company.

Ice bridge to thick

there is a timer, adjusted by seconds, first make sure the condenser coil located under the ice bin is clean. the harvest is initiated by suction pressure once the pressure switch makes contact the time delay will time out initiating the harvest. you can fine tune the bridge with the time delay.

I have a Ice-o-matic, model number IC1006FAZ, the purge valve gets stuck after one harvest, it got stuck open, we open it and clean all the hoses, and unclug the valve, It happened before and it fixed the...

Pretty sure it is a bad valve. You can unplug the unit and disconnect the wires to the purge valve then plug the unit in again and try to make ice like that. If the valve leaks through with no power it is obviously bad. You note that you unclogged the valve in the past. I have taken a few of these apart and sprayed the internal diaphragm with food grade silicone lubricant but this is a very short term fix. I always wind up ordering and replacing the valve.
In the mean time you could plug the purge hose for a day or two. I would not run it too long like this because you will get a mineral build-up in the unit. The reason for the purge is that minerals do not freeze and wind up settling in the sump. Eventually enough mineral deposits build up to circulate and clog up the water tube and deposit on the evaporator plate. Some minerals are always going to stay in there and cause problems but with no purge they will REALLY build up.
