Question about Freezers
This item isn't listed on the product list but we're stuck in the boonies and need some help please!
Machine has been idle for 3 months.working fine before.
Goes through the fill cycle with the water going over the ice plate, (this is where the compressor should kick in) until the reservoir is full... the water continues to run over the plate with neither the compressor or fan kicking in. If you manually press the relay the compressor and fan will start.
Here's my thoughts, I hope it helps. I'm going on foggy memory here, so I may not be entirely correct.
I worked on something like this a few years ago. The icemold (plate) is vertical, there is a circulating pump that runs water over the mold, with the water freezing as it passes. The sealed system is a heat-pump scheme, it freezes the mold to form the cubes, and reverses to heat for release. And when it works, it makes ice fast. It runs constantly until the ice hopper is detected to be full. (there should be a bail to detect the ice level) The system will not run in the event that it thinks the hopper is full (bail up) but the pump motor runs continuous to avoid it freezing. There is probably either a false detection of "full" or there may be a leak in the sealed system and the system will therefore not run.
