Scotsman CM250AE Ice Machine tech help

Good Day,

I am servicing an older ice machine. It had a seized water pump which I have changed out as well as the water solenoid. When the ice starts to form on the plate the unit seems to go into harvest mode earlier than it should and we get very small cubes. The water solenoid starts to fill the reservoir and fills it to the overflow and beyond. The unit starts to freeze the plate after about four-five minutes of operation.

Cube size thermostat is stuck closed which keeps the timer motor running all the time, thus short freeze cycle.
Replace the cube size thermostat.

Water keeps runing out of drain & makes vary little wet ice

Posted on Apr 19, 2011

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.

It might be a dirty or damaged ice tray. When in the harvest mode the hot gas will be directed through the tray untill the cubes fall tripping the reset to start the freezing cycle again. If the cubes are sticking because of rust or scale buildup the cubes get "overmelted" causing the "wet cubes".CAREFULLY clean the ice tray . Use vinegar or ice machine cleaner do not use any cleaning pads steel wool or sand paper as this will ruin ice tray. Also make sure icemaker is level both ways. Hope this helps.

I have a SCOTSMAN ICE MAKER MODEL NUMBER CM250AE-1E and the water coming into the machine never stops. It fills the tray until the water runs out the drain in the back of the machine.


I ran a service call on this model today with the same exact problem. I diagnosed it with a bad fill valve. The valve is not closing all the way and therefore lets water in all the time. With yours, the problem could be a bad timer or a bad microswitch or a bad valve. Hard to tell without looking.
Now to find the replacement valve for this thing...

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
