Question about Sunpentown SPT IM-100 Portable Ice Maker, for up to 2.5 lbs of Ice
I just fixed one of these. I had to take the motor the drives the shovel off the unit and fabricate the pin that goes through the motor shaft. The original pin that goes through the motor shaft obviously wasn't made of stainless steel or aluminum and it rusted away. Take a look at yours and see if the shaft pin is missing. You will need to take the back panels off, there are 6 screws on the bottom of the unit, and two silver screws on the large back panel. Take those off and you will expose the refrigeration unit. Take the screws out that hold the lid on and place them with the others. These will be about an eighth of an inch longer than the ones that came out of the bottom. You will then need to unplug the motor from the two wires, one is red, one is white. Take the two screws that hold the motor on and then remove to motor. The shaft pin is perpendicular to the plane of the motor shaft. If it's not there, your going to have your work cut out for you as the remnants of the original pin is probably rusted solid to the motor shaft. Drill this out if you can't knock it out. I made the new pin out of a stainless steel screw that I ground the threads off of. I then super-glued the new shat pin into the shaft after I cut it to length.
