SOURCE: whirlpool ice maker ,no harvest?

Hi, The optics almost never go in those unit's, the problem is in the icemaker module itself. If you can jump it thru a fill and then no advancing thru to harvest afterward ( provided your freezer is below freezing ) it's the module. You can either replace just the head/module or the entire icemaker. For the difference of only about $50 I always replace the complete assembly. The most common one being about $150 complete, # 2198597 and this should be the one for your fridge since you mentioned the optic component's. Hope that help's. Thanks for choosing "fixya" for your fridge inquiry. Please take a moment and rate this solution if indeed it solves your problem. Thanks again and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Pretty sure it is a bad valve. You can unplug the unit and disconnect the wires to the purge valve then plug the unit in again and try to make ice like that. If the valve leaks through with no power it is obviously bad. You note that you unclogged the valve in the past. I have taken a few of these apart and sprayed the internal diaphragm with food grade silicone lubricant but this is a very short term fix. I always wind up ordering and replacing the valve.
In the mean time you could plug the purge hose for a day or two. I would not run it too long like this because you will get a mineral build-up in the unit. The reason for the purge is that minerals do not freeze and wind up settling in the sump. Eventually enough mineral deposits build up to circulate and clog up the water tube and deposit on the evaporator plate. Some minerals are always going to stay in there and cause problems but with no purge they will REALLY build up.

I have a Scotsman CME 506 ice maker. After running a cleaning cycle it won't run. After resetting the freeze light blinks and nothing happens. The water inlet valve never opens (the sump is current


CM3 Operational Sequence.
From Off, push and release the freeze button.
1. If sump is full,water pump starts.If sump is not full,water valve opens to fill it.
2. Compressor starts when sump is full.Air cooled fan motor starts too.
3. water pump stops early in freeze cycle for 30 seconds.
4. Sump refills after pump starts.
5. In low ambient condition,fan motor may begin to cycle on and off.
6. Freeze continues until water level in sump drops to preset point. Exceptions: SCE275 must fill sump two more times.
7. Fan may shut off before the end of freeze.
8. Harvest begins. Hot gas valve opens,pump stops.
9. Pump restarts, inlet water valve opens to fill and overflow the reservoir.
10. Harvest continues for preset first cycle harvest time.
11. If bin is not full, cycle repeats ( compressor stays on). If bin is full, unit shuts off at the end of harvest.
OK with that out of the way unless you unplugged any wires cleaning the machine should not have caused any problems. First cut off water and pull water supply line from water inlet valve look in the end of valve there is a screen in there it could be stopped up. If the valve screen is not stopped up then put supply water line back on and turn water back on. power the CM3 controller off. push freeze button. now with a voltage meter check at the water inlet valve to make sure you are getting power to the valve.If you are then either valve is stopped up or valve is bad. If you are not getting power to valve then replace the CM3 controller now make sure the bin full light is not on because if it is this will not let controller go back to a freeze cycle.

Ice-o-matic 400ha2 ice machine wont harvest soon enough / ice to thick


There could be so many things wrong with it to cause this problem from just a dirty machine, bad harvest assist plunger, low freon charge, bad hot gas valve. You really need to call a service company.
