The water runs over the evaporator coil(plate) until the ice gets thick enough, than when the ices touches a switch for the thickness you have it set for, it to go into harvest and the hot gas from the liquid line goes through the evaporator making the ice fall. If you are not making ice, it is the refrigeration system not working, so check the refrigerant, compressor etc like you would on any refrigerator or freezer

SOURCE: Solis Palazzo - stuck in descale mode?

Are you refilling the tank during this process? You need to let in run dry, and then the buttons flash. Then, refill the tank with clean water, and let the tank run dry again.

SOURCE: saeco wont stop descaling

In service menu there are 2 parameters you should look. First one - descaling - should be on 'done'. The second one is a counter - water used since last descaling - should be on 0.

SOURCE: Descaling

No, it does not quite clean both boilers, even though they are connected, you will have to use the preground chute if your machine has one, if not then grind and brew method will work. The reason, you want to get some of the cleaner through the white plastic valve behind the brewunit and the fitting that connects it to the boiler.

SOURCE: Delonghi coffee machine making an aweful noise,

Hi. Husband asks: When you first turn the machine on at the power point, does it make a motor sound and then stop, or is the awful noise apparent at that time.

If the awful noise starts as soon as you turn it on, then most likely there is a motor problem which will need to be seen by a Service Center.

Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

ok, what you have not told me was the temp of the ice plate. If you have an inferred thermometer now is a good time to use it. what is the Temp of the plates or ice collection try. Ice will never collect if it is not below zero C. 32F my guess is it must be below 28F. you need some kind to thermometer.

Water keeps running on cm3


Replace the ice thickness sensor hanging on the front of the evaporator plate. when you turn the power off and back on factory default is to go to harvest first. if the ice thickness sensor dose not sense the ice is thick enough then it will not go into a harvest. before you replace the sensor take it loose from the evap plate and drop it into the water sump tray if it goes into a harvest then replace the board. if not then replace the sensor.

Refrigerator icemaker repair


The ice maker does its own thang. All it needs is power and a good water valve to supply the water. Also you paid the water bill helps too. Anywho when the temp in the ice maker mold drops below 25f the harvest cycle begins. The mold heater is activated and loosens the ice. When the ice starts moving the heater shuts down and the motor carrys over and drops the ice. The ice maker then asked for and gets water from the water valve. So what goes wrong? Watervalve solenoid burnt out, water valve dripping like a faucet make a stalagmite in the fill tube blocking fresh water to ice mold. If that is ok then something inside the icemaker went haywire, replace it. When replacing the ice maker replace the watervalve. Note: if temp inside icebox freezer does not get to 25f any ice maker new or existing ain't gonna make ice. Be sure to clean the coils down by the compressor and the kickplate so the maximum amount of airflow is running down there and make sure the cardboard panel back there is in place.

KM450MAB my machine makes a batch of ice then goes into harvest cycle and dose not come out of it, it gets realy hot. What can be the problem?


Probably the suction line thermister, this sensor should signal a timer in the main control board to initiate harvest. If the thermister is OK than there may be a problem with the control board

Unit makes ice,full evaporator,is very slow,maybe 45 mins. from harvest to harvest. Why so slow?


Possible causes are many
Things to check
  • If air cooled, is the condenser coil clean and is the condenser fan running when in ice production ? Is the area extremely hot where the ice machine is located? If water cooled, is there adequate water pressure and is the water regulating valve set properly?
  • When the system switch is in the off position is there any water running ( if so the inlet water valve may be stuck open)
  • When in ice production, is the small tube that feeds from the hot gas solenoid hot? This tube comes from a valve at the back of the unit and feeds over the compressor and into a tee near the insulated Tx valve. This line should be hot during harvest and cool shortly after harvest.
  • Has the float switch assembly been cleaned. this is a cylindrical unit beside the water pump,It can get plugged with minerals and not initiate harvest
  • The system may have a refrigerant charge problem (short) or the compressor may be weak, at which point diagnosis would need to be done by a refrigeration tech
Hope this helps

Hoshizaki KM-900MAH Ice Maker it sounds like it is making ice and is freezing it but its not dropping ice any solutions?


when the machine first starts, it begins it's cycle in the harvest mode. If the float switch is stuck, it stays in the fill/ harvest mode. Compressor runs and water circulates but no ice is being made. I'd start looking there. Turn the machine on, let it run for about 3 minutes, they very lightly tap the float switch. If it starts making ice, bingo, theres your problem. Let me know if I can be of any more help.

Not making ice on a frigidaire side by side model FRS6LR5EB6 refrigerator


Remove the cover of the ice maker and look at the main drive gear. Look close. If a tooth is missing that is the problem. It could be a bad water valve also. Always check the cheapest thing first. Replace the ice maker last. Make sure the coils are clean around the compressor area. Ice freezes at 32f but the ice maker don't harvest till 25f. If you have a filter you need to change it out if you determine you need a water valve. Try adding water to the ice mold and see if it harvests a batch.

Icemaker wont make ice.


ICE MAKER 101

If the temp inside the ice box is 25f or less in the freezer the mold thermostat fires up the ice maker and it goes into harvest. At the end of the cycle it powers the water valve for 7 seconds. Either your water valve is bad or your ice maker. Keep in mind ice freezes at 32f but ice makers don't harvest till 25 f. If the coils beneath the box are a tiny bit dirty this could kill the efficientcy of the box.So make sure the coils are nice and clean. That in itself could make the ice production start again. reamore at the above link.
