Question about U-Line Icemaker
I have a U-Line Echelon CLR2060 Ice machine. It runs through the cycles just fine, and will usually harvest the first batch of ice, but after that, the ice does not harvest and just builds up a big blob. I've used an ice machine cleaner three times, and it has not made any difference. I use reverse-osmosis filtered water in the machine, and the ice making grid appears to be very clean. The service manual recommends replacing the bypass valve. I've checked the solenoid on the bypass valve and it is functioning properly. Since the ice drops on the first load, I assume the bypass valve is functioning. According to the manual, the thermistor determines how long the freeze cycle is and how long the harvest cycle is. It seems to be freezing fine. Any suggestions on what to do next.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: U-LINE BCM95 NOT CYCLING
These units take a full cycle to get to the fill cycle, so you won't get ice on the first cyle unless you manually fill the tray when you first power it on. You may have some air in the water line and need to cycle a few times to fully bleed the air out. Also check the water inlet for debris in the filter screen using a small brass brush, then bleed out air -with water on- while tightening back hose connection avoiding need to bleed while cycling.

have you got the equipment to change this solenoid valve? you will need a vacuum pump to evacuate the system once you have changed the valve, and the equipment to charge the system with refrigerant (gas).

SOURCE: We have a CLR2060. It
What did you use to clean the grid? It must be U-line cleaner. I seen people use other cleaners just to find the same results. If the ice isnt ejecting then you can check the hotgas coil. It should be 360 ohms. If its open or week I see this from time to time. If its neither then you need a service tech to repair the sealed system . Replace the hotgas valve.

I have the same problem. I tested the solenoid that operates the hot gas bypass valve and it worked fine. Based on the service manual I found on the web, I figured it had a bad hot gas bypass valve, which requires removing the refrigerant. I took it in for service and the tech said it was a bad control board. He determined that by disconnecting a wire from the Ice cube size control. Once disconnected, the machine readily fills up with ice like it's supposed to, but the ice is too thin to be any good. They charge 240.00 to replace the board so I told them to go for it.
