Question about Scotsman Kitchen Appliances - Others
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
