Scotsman dce33 freezing up

I have a scotsman DCE33 icemaker that continues to freeze up. I have adjusted the cube size to the smallest and the harvest to the longest, but it doesn't drop the ice. I suspect it could now be the hot gas valve, but I have no idea how to check it. Any help will be appreciated.

Hi,

With your ice maker not working properly, you might be wondering the reason behind the malfunctioning of your ice maker. Several factors could be involved in case your ice maker is not making any ice at all. It might be caused due to a defect in the water supply line. It could be possible that the water valve isn't getting any water. Check the water line at the back of the freezer for any blockage. Look for the water shut-off valve placed behind the refrigerator or under the sink and turn it off.

Next step would be to unscrew the copper line located at the back of the refrigerator. Now place the copper line in a bucket and turn on the valve to check if pressurized water comes out. The problem could also be linked to a defective tap valve.

There is usually a sensor that the cubes will touch after the cubes thickness builds to a certain point. This sensor should be adjustible.

Cme 506 cubes too small


turn ice bridge thickness screw clockwise to thicken and counterclockwise to get thinner. Do not turn anymore than about 1/8 turn between freeze cycles. the adjustment screw is very finicky and requires patience in setting properly. the distance from the bridge thickness gauge to freeze platen is approximately 1/4 - 5/16 of an inch.

My Scotsman undercounter icemaker is not producing much ice and the little it does produce is watery. How do I fix? The model # is DCE33PA-1WB. Is this model discontinued?

Dce33 ice machine running but timer seems not to work,,,any quick fixes


I saw the chat be declined it hoping your question would pop up here. It did so here goes. If the time is not advancing you test for voltage on the timer motor terminals. You should read input power at the terminals. Then check for resistance from each one of the terminals to the clock motor. There is a switch on the back of the timer motor that stops the timer at the end of the harvest cycle. The switch can be bad as in stuck with the switch actuator depressed.

See page 22 of this manual for the switch on the timer motor:
http://www.abt.com/images/products/PDF_Files/DCE33_om.pdf

There can also be a problem as noted inthe service manual:

Caution: The timer is controlled by the cube size
control, and will not turn if the cube size control
does not work.

The cube size control can be defective.

Your machine is supposed to cycle every 25 minutes.

Here is yet one more link that gives some great information about icemaker troubleshooting:

http://www.achrnews.com/Articles/Service_and_Maintenance/dd0baaf2a87bc010VgnVCM100000f932a8c0


One more comment about the cube size control under troubleshooting:

Cube size control will not close:
1. See “Too much heat load” or
2. “not enough refrigerant” (low freon)
3. Control defective - must be
replaced.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My scotman model sce170a1a.goes into harvest to


That has to be a faulty control wouldn't you think?
The cube size control should only be adjusted to
bring the cubes to the correct shape, the overall
size cannot be adjusted. Try to adjust the cube
size control when the ice machine is in the harvest
cycle, or in the first 10 minutes of the freeze cycle.
1. Open the door and remove the control box
cover.
2. Locate the cube size adjustment screw, and to
make fuller cubes, turn the screw clockwise about
1/4 turn. This will make the freezing cycle longer.
3. To shorten the freezing cycle and make cubes
that are not as full, turn the adjustment screw 1/4
turn counterclockwise.
4. After the next freezing cycle, the cubes should
have responded to the adjustment, if another
adjustment is required, do it early in the freeze
cycle.

No accumulation of ice


Check to see if your condensor coil is clean, use an air compressor or other source to blow thourgh the coil,dont just brush it off. newer refrigerant charged systems need as much air flow as possible to work ,also make sure the cover is on the condensor section while the ubit is in nrmal operation. try setting the cube size to lowest setting and let run for 24 hrs. Let me know if you need further assistance.
