Ice sheets too thick to shatter when dropped

Scotsman CM3, Seems to be too long in freeze cycle. Ice builds up too thick to break apart when in harvest mode. Goes into freeze mode and then fills freezing units solid. ?Is there a way to shorten freeze time.
Mod. #CME 456 AS-32B ??

    sounds like a bad water level sensor or bad float.when the computer reads its out of water two times it goes into harvest.Look on the blue shaft there is a **** in the middle put a little tape on **** to adjust how long it is in freeze.or just replace it.

WHY scotsman iec machine shuts down on the refridgeration light ON CM3 CONT


Is the machine producing ice thick enough to come off the evaporator plate? the machine will try to harvest 3 times before it locks out on long harvest. Harvest cycle: The compressor and hot gas valve are both powered during the harvest cycle. The fan and pump are off at this time. The machine stays in the harvest cycle until the evaporator thermistor senses 52 DEG F. If the bin is not full, the unit goes into another freeze cycle. I would check the Thermistor

Scotsman CM3 does not harvest and does not refill


Remove the ice thickness probe that is hanging at the top of the evaporator plate and clean really good put it back push the freeze tab. If the ice is still getting to thick and not causing the machine to go into a harvest then replace the probe , make sure when you do this to set the thickness by using a 1/8 inch drill bit, lay the bit flat between the evaporator plate and the probe turn the 1/4 screw in or out to achieve the 1/8 inch. The probe is what sets the machine into a harvest, if the ice is not building up enough to cause the water to come into contact whit the probe long enough then it will not go into a harvest. if the ice is getting to thick and the water should be running over the probe it should have went into a harvest if not then the probe is not sensing it to tell the CM3 to go into a harvest.

SCOTSMAN MODEL #CME506WS1F


You need to descale the water circuit according to manufactures instructions. Scale build up keeps the ice from releasing during harvest cycle. If overall ice thickness is to thick, rotate the ice bridge thickness screw at the top of the platen countercloclwise about 1/8 of a turn max between freeze cycles until desired thickness obtained. If you do not know the correct descale solution alway use a nickel safe descaling solution.

If it is going into harvest but the ice is to thick causing it to stick and not letting it drop then you need to adjust the ice thickness sensor it dose not need to be no more distance than 1/8 of an inch between face of sensor and evaporator plate you can use a 1/8 drill bit flat between sensor face and ice plate use a 1/4 nut driver to adjust the sensor.
