Question about U-Line Icemaker

1 Answer

Hello. I have a U-Line CLR2060S. The problem is that the hot gas part of the cycle begins even before ice is produced. The ice production part of the cycle in turn, is very short. Basically NO ice is produced.

Hi,
I have checked and There could be a couple of issues that affect the performance of this uint.
First what is the ambient temperature surrounding hte unit. If it is tto hot say above 80 degrees then it can affect ice production.
Next, when is the last time if ever that the coils have been cleaned? Keeping the coils clean so that you get good air flow across them is extremely important.
What about leveling the unit? If the unit is not completely level both front to back and side to side it can affect ice production.
If all of these things check out and no ice is produced then you need to find what controls the time out of the unit. Ice machines time out in two ways. Either a sensor or a timer. I am fairly sure that your unit just uses a timer to start the hot gas cycle. If everything else checks out then I would replace the timer. This is the reason that your cycles are running to short.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Which error e1 of hoshizaki ice maker fm-170ake


E1, means low ice production
Ice machine cycle takes to long to call for a harvest. When this happens it should shut the whole unit down and then show the error code. Reset power supply, Turn off then Turn on the machine. Check for these problems. Gas leaking by the hot gas valve when in freeze mode, this valve should only let hot gas by when it is in a harvest mode. Check water control valve to make sure it is not letting water in during freeze cycle. Check water float switch to make sure it is not stuck calling for water during freeze cycle. Also make sure the machine is not in a hot location, the hotter the ambient surrounding air entering the condenser coil the longer it takes to make ice.

Admiral side by side fridge is not staying cool


Hi, fridge produced today's time do not possess the condenser on the back of the fridge but underneath. Most people handled exclusively fridge and uses. The problem begins when after some time of use
accumulates a large dirt suspension that starts to block the airflow that cools the gas flows and who to be with cool before it flows to the evaporator to colder gas produced in the evaporator temperature minuses. If the gas is hot at the entrance of the evaporator does not produce a very low temperature as well as produces more ice who eventually begins to block the flow of cool air inside the refrigerator. It should also check de defrost circuit who also may be damaged. What should be tilted for cleaning your refrigerator and use the vacuum cleaner from time to time.

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

Hello- The unit doesn't produce warm air, it's


I would say, it's safe to assume that the ice damaged the fan motor. It probably tried to run, but since it was totally encapsulated in ice, the motor probably overheated and burner up the brushes in the motor. This is something a qualified service technician can confirm or not.

Beeping 3 times every 3 seconds


The 3 beeps indicates that the unit was in the freeze cycle for 60 minutes. Causes: 1.) Water valve leaking, allowing water to continually enter the system. 2.) Float switch stuck, sending false signal to board. This indicates ice not being produced. 3,.) Low freon level causing long freeze cycle. 4.) Hot gas valve leaking thru causing warmer than normal evap plates=low production. 5.) Expansion Valve not feeding freon properly to evap plates.
Items 1 and 2 are the most common. Number 3 possible due to freon leak in the system. Number 4 and 5 are usually a very rare occurance.
Hope this helps ya.

Ice maker is not making ice


hello. i can help.

If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

  • It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:

    • If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.

    • If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.

    In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.

  • The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Small or too few ice cubes If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly.

Small production of ice? What should be the normal production of ice?


The way I understand how Hoshizaki machines work, the model number is usually what the unit will produce, in pounds of ice. Their manual states: "Approximate production/ 24 hours @ 70 degrees air/ 50 degrees water (incoming)" So, yours should be producing 450 pounds a day, approimately. Since I can not pin point your exact model, I found one that is close. It states: "Ice Production per cycle: 6.6 pounds, 360 pcs." Again, it is not you exact machine. Their web site does not show this model either. So this is the best info I can get for you. Hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool Model EC3JHAXRL00. The ice


Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
models) in the OFF position?
 Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
 Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
container.
 Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on.
 Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
 Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!
