I am getting a message saying the Curtain Open and I can't get my ice machine to come on?


I didn't think their smaller units had a curtain, but it is referring to the plastic shield that hangs in front of the ice making grid or evaporator. This must be closed for the unit to run and there is a magnetic reed switch located on the bottom right hand corner of the curtain to prove that it is closed. Actually the magnet is in the curtain and the reed switch is snapped into the side of the grid. Make sure the curtain is in place and the magnet has not broken off. If that is in tact look to see if the reed switch is in tight. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CURTAIN... some units had a small plastic flapper at the bottom of the grid that was activated whenever ice dropped. Same system though with a magnet and reed switch. The magnets on some of these curtains and flappers were just surface mounted with some kind of adhesive and others have it captured inside of a plastic pocket made into the curtain. So if you don't see a magnet look for a spot where it used to be. If you want to prove this is the problem just get a magnet and hold it up to that spot for about 10 seconds and see if the unit cycles on. You will then have to order a new curtain or flapper or attach a magnet to the broken spot somehow.

Why my scotsman ice machine goes off on the refridgertion light


This could be several things. This means it has tried to harvest the ice 3 consecutive times before the machine has locked out.
1. Likely Cause, Ice bridge thickness too small, not enough ice to open curtain. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check and adjust if needed.
2. LIKELY CAUSE, ice bridge too large, ice frozen to evaporator frame. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check and adjust if needed.
3. LIKELY CAUSE, Purge valve does not open, water melts ice bridge, not enough ice to open curtain. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check purge valve during harvest.
4. LIKELY CAUSE, incomplete ice formation. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check water distributor for partially plugged holes. The machine needs to be cleaned and sanitized every 6 months.
5. LIKELY CAUSE, Curtain out of position. PROBABLE SOLUTION, check curtain for swing restriction.
6. LIKELY CAUSE, Curtain switch dose not open when curtain does. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check switch with ohmmeter if bad replace.
7. LIKELY CAUSE. Machine in very cold ambient. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Move machine to a warmer location.
8. LIKELY CAUSE. Hot gas valve does not open during harvest. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check hot gas valve with a volt meter during harvest mode to see if you are getting correct voltage to it. If not then replace control board . IF yes and valve is not opening then replace valve.
9. LIKELY CAUSE. Harvest assist probe out of position - ejector pin not retracted. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check harvest assist mechanism - spring should retract pin.
10. LIKELY CAUSE. Damaged evaporator. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check evaporator surface. Make sure the plates where they intercept each other is not loose this will cause ice to hang up. check to make sure the nickel is not peeling off, if so then the plate will need to be replaced.
11. LIKELY CAUSE. Fan motor stays on during harvest. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check controller using test mode. If this dose not help you then give me the model number so i know what machine you have.

Manitowoc Ice machine only makes 2/3 bin of Ice and shuts off


The unit shuts off based on the magnetic reed switch in the plastic curtain on the front of the evaporator. If the ice is not falling as one single sheet with about 1/4"-3/8" of a bridge conecting all of the cubes then the ice is too thin. When the ice falls (in a single sheet of ice) if there is enough ice in the bin to hold that ice up and keep the curtain open the unit shuts down. A full bin may only be what appears to be 2/3 or 3/4 of a bin full because the ice sheet is propped up behind the curtain. If the ice sheet is too thin and does not fall as a single sheet more often than not a single cube or a piece of a cube can get caught between the curtain and the evaporator plate. This can shut the unit down for several hours until that piece melts and the curtain closes again.

I have a model qd0452a manitowoc and it will not stop making ice


Very unusual for one of these to not stop. There is a magnetic proximity switch located on the bottom right side of the water curtain that serves to both cancel a harvest/drop and to shut the unit down on a full bin. When a drop occurs the control board sees a open and then close of the switch and restarts a freeze mode. If the ice drops and the bin is full the curtain is blocked by the ice behind it from closing again and the unit shuts down on a full bin indication. If the curtain does not open and close after 3 hours it would lock the unit out. Therefore I assume that the switch and the board are working. Most likely you either have the unit on a non-Manitowoc bin or are missing a deflector plate in the Manitowoc bin and the ice is falling out of a service door.

We have four Scotsman Ice Makers. The curtains are beginning to turn a little green. What is the approximate cost of replacing these curtains. How much per curtain?


Unless they are terrible you can clean the curtains. What you do is put icemaker cleaner in the icemaker and run it through a cycle. I don't know how much the curtains cost.
