Excessive Water Overflow

Scotsman MC 15 AS 6B Air-cooled The machine produces ice just fine but after each freezing cycle, which takes about 20 min, it drains about 12 liters of water into the drainage. The manual states 300 liters / 24h water consumption. Present value is 3x12x24 = 864 liters + 150kg ice in 24h. Is there a float valve that could be damaged in this machine model or would you assume the water inlet valve needs fixing? Any help is appreciated.

Reduce the water pressure at the inlet valve so the trough fills up during harvest but doesn't overflow too much. There is a restrictor you can put in the valve entry, or you can just turn the tap to partly close it.

SOURCE: Water works fine - No Ice

Does it sound like everything is running, only the machine isnt makinf ice? If so, there is a small triangular housing with a hose connected to the small motor on the left under the front panel. shut off the machine and remove the 3 screws on the triangular housing. inside there is a spring and a round rubber disk. take these items out and clean them. its amazing a tiny amount of debris will cause this to not work. install the reverse as you removed thewm, turn the power on.

Check the bridge size adjustment at the top of the metal grid that the ice forms on. This determines the size of the cubes. Whenever you make a repair on the water system, especially on an older unit. make sure the unit is clean. A little bit of calcium deposits (or that other nasty looking stuff) getting into the passage ways will make it run erratically, and can drive you nuts.

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

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

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

I have some problem with our machine scotsman mv450 is to long product ice very slowly


Min freeze time 6 minutes and max freeze time 45 minutes. the 6 minutes is with perfect conditions. Example: Cycle time water temp was 50 degrees coming in to the water sump tray from water supply and the Ambient air temp surrounding the machine was a constant 70 deg than the machine should make ice every 10 - 12 minutes.now we know that the water temp from the water source is not going to be 50 deg and room temp will not be 70 deg all the time so the warmer water temp and ambient air temp is the longer it takes to make ice. one thing you wont to check is the water inlet valve to make sure it is not letting water seep through causing water temp not to cool down from running across evap plates. make sure the condenser coil is clean this will slow down production of ice.

Mv450 scotsman high pressure


Check to make sure the condenser coil is clean, fan motor is running during freeze cycle. High Ambient temp, Ventilation, The higher the temperature entering the condenser coil the higher the head pressure. Fan motor failure, pressure switch failure. The cut out pressure varies 400, 450 or 500 PSIG. Water supply failure. not enough water running over the evaporator plate will cause high presser.

The scotsmand machine make ice, but quantity of the ice seems limited. The machine was descaled a month ago, no signs it needs serviced again. Could the cube sensor be faulty?


Take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust in the coil. If the coil can't get rid of the heat, it reflects in the amount of ice it produces.
