    How long does a freeze cycle last? Is the ice fully formed and normal? There are two safety limits that shut the unit down. First is the unit taking 60 minutes or more to make ice. Second is unit taking 3-1/2 minutes to drop the ice. In general the freeze mode should take 12-18 minutes and the harvest or drop mode takes 1-2 minutes. This depends of course on water temperature to the machine and air temperature around the machine.

maybe not. it could be that the heating cycle is taking a lot of time to remove the ice from the evaporator that is why the electronics is shutting off the compressor as a protection. check the heating cycle if it is working fine. check the evaporator for dirt that would hold the ice slab from falling down quickly. check the level of the unit. it may have move and now its out of level. the unit must be leveled with the ground.

SOURCE: Manitowoc ice machine that will not produce ice

This is odd that Manitowoc is listed on a page showing a Whirlpool refrigerator model and number. What is the model number listed on your Manitowoc? Not the base model number. The number listed inside the top section. Manitowoc has a really good service reputation. Their control boards have a series of self diagnostics. Get me your model and we will go from there.

Hot gas valve needs to be seated to make sure it doesnt leak thru. At times the valve will close but it doesnt seal so it bleeds thru. You will need a hotgas valve replaced.

I have a Manitowoc J series and it will run three cycles and then shut off. I will start again and the same thing happens. everything else seems to be fine.


Chances are the unit is shutting down on an error code. It will shut down after three batches if either A: the unit takes too long to make ice, or B: a harvest cycle lasts too long. You can time a batch of ice with a timer or stopwatch... if you listen you should be able to tell when the "ice making" stops and the "harvesting" begins. Ice making should take about 13-15 minutes and harvesting 1.5 to 2.5 minutes. If I remember correctly the error codes are triggered if the ice making takes 60 minutes or longer and/or the harvest takes 3 minutes or longer. You can tell which error code is tripping by accessing the electronic control board. There is an LED indicator that will blink when you turn the unit on if there is an error present in the memory.

It will not stay in harvest cycle long enough to make ice before it goes into defrost


First it has to go through freeze cycle then harvest cycle to drop ice then back to freeze cycle. If you have never worked on ice machines before you should call a service company.

Makes ice for 3 cycles then stops running.Can turn off then on again to make more ice for a couple more cycles.


check the cycle time for a batch of ice. should take around 15 minutes to freeze and then you will hear the harvest cycle kick in. If the harvest cycle takes 3 minutes or more that is your problem. You will need to get a hold of NICKEL SAFE ICE MACHINE CLEANER. DO NOT use CLR or any kind of cleaner other than NICKEL SAFE ICE MACHINE CLEANER. If the ice doesn't fall off of the plate in about 90 seconds either the plate is dirty or the nickel plating has come off. There is a failsafe shut down if the unit takes more than 60 minutes to freeze or more than 3 minutes to harvest 3 consecutive times. The cleaning instructions should be inside of one of the covers. If not it's available online.

Ice maker Manitowoc QD-0212A


This light is a harvest limit light. This light's primary function is to be on as water contacts the ice thickness probe during the freeze cycle, and remain on throughout the entire harvest cycle. The light will flicker as water splashes on the probe. The lights secondary function is to continuously flash when the ice machine is shut off on a safety limit, and to indicate which safety limit shut off the ice machine. Start up of machine after turned off. !. Before the ice machine starts, The water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to purge old water from the water trough. This ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. The water fill valve energizes after 45 second water purge, and remains on until the water level probe is satisfied. 2. to pre-chill the evaporator, there is no water for the first 30 seconds of the freeze cycle. 3. The water pump starts after 30 seconds pre-chill. An even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into each cube cell.

I have a model qd0452a manitowoc and it will not stop making ice


Very unusual for one of these to not stop. There is a magnetic proximity switch located on the bottom right side of the water curtain that serves to both cancel a harvest/drop and to shut the unit down on a full bin. When a drop occurs the control board sees a open and then close of the switch and restarts a freeze mode. If the ice drops and the bin is full the curtain is blocked by the ice behind it from closing again and the unit shuts down on a full bin indication. If the curtain does not open and close after 3 hours it would lock the unit out. Therefore I assume that the switch and the board are working. Most likely you either have the unit on a non-Manitowoc bin or are missing a deflector plate in the Manitowoc bin and the ice is falling out of a service door.

Problem on Manitowoc Ice Maker Series 150


if the reed switch is not tripped at the end of the harvest cycle it will shut down. when ice drops it hits a cover with a magnet on the right bottom corner. the ice falling moves the magnet away from a switch and lets the sequence reset and start over.
