Everything runs off of the timer when water is being filled it is in harvest and the hot gas valve should open which heats the evap coils and causes ice to fall,low side pressure should rise to around 65 or so when in harvest.if gas valve is opening adjust timer to allow for a longer harvest and shorter freeze.the water should fill the water resovoir.

The plate may be coming sperated and the ice is freezing behind thus not dropping. I would run my fingers down both sides making sure the plate is flush. If not then reomve plate or tap back til flush

I am going to assume that the machine has been cleaned, I would adjust the cube thickness to less.

Check the dump valve if water is seeping through the dump valve then the water inlet valve will be adding water to sump all the time to replace water lost. Now if water is running over sump into ice bin then look at water inlet valve.

How to clean a scotsman icemaker


WHAT SHOULDN'T BE DONE.
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice; objects like wine or beer bottles are not only unsanitary, but the labels may slip off and plug up the drain. Never allow the machine to operate without regular. The machine will last longer if it is kept clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least once per year,and preferable twice. Some water conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning of the ice making section, and some carpets or pets will dictate more frequent cleaning or the condenser.

WHAT SHOULD BE KEPT CLEAN?
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The outside cabinet & door.
2. The ice storage bin.
3. The condenser.
4. The ice making system.
5. The ice scoop.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CABINET.
Wipe off any spills on the surface of the door and handle as they occur. If anything spilled on the door of gasket dries onto the surface, wash with soap and warm water to remove.

HOW TO CLEAN THE ICE STORAGE BIN.
The ice storage bin should be sanitized occasionally. It is usually convenient to sanitize the bin after the ice making system has been cleaned, and the storage bin empty. A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of household bleach and two gallons of hot (95 deg F.-115 deg F.)Water. Use a clean cloth and wipe down the interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing solution, pour some of the solution down the drain. Allow to dry.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CONDENSER.
The condenser is like a radiator on a car, it has fins and tubed that can become clogged. To clean:
1. Remove the kick plate.
2. Locate the condenser surface.
3. Vacuum the surface, remove all dust and lint.
4. Replace the kick plate.

CLEANING THE SYSTEM.

HOW TO CLEAN THE ICE MAKING SYSTEM.
1. Open the door and turn the ice machine control knob off.
2. Scoop out all of the ice, either discard it or save it in a ice chest or cooler.
3. Pour 4 ounces of Scotsman ice Machine Cleaner ( available from a local Scotsman Distributor or Dealer, ask for part number 19-0343-06- an 8 ounce bottle) into the ice machine reservoir.
4. Turn the ice machine control to ON.
5. Allow the machine to operate for about 2 hours.
6. Pour hot water into the bin to melt the ice that has formed. That ice will likely be white and frosty looking.
7. Clean the bin liner of mineral scale by mixing some ice machine cleaner and hot water, and using that solution to scrub the scale off of the liner.
8. Rinse the liner with hot water.
9. Sanitize the bin interior.
10. Replace the ice removed in step 2.
The ice scoop should be washed regularly, wash it just like any other food container.
WARNING; Scotsman ice machine cleaner contains acids. These compounds may cause burns. If swallowed,DO NOT induce vomiting. Give large amounts of water or milk. Call Physician immediately. In case of skin contact,flush with water. Keep out of the reach of children. Always follow manufactures directions.

Scotsman ice machine water runs continually never shuts off. It will make ice but really racks up water bill. It is as if the float never senses the reservoir is full. What is my problem?


OK is the bin full of ice to where the ice stops making ? and is the water running over into the ice bin. If this is whats happening then cut the machine off, If water is still coming into sump tray then pull the water inlet valve and replace it. If the water stops when you shut the machine off then check the water float or sensor since i don't know what model you have, If float then replace it , if probe sensor then replace it. Now if there is no water running over into ice bin during freeze cycle then nothing is wrong ice machines use a lot of water every time it go's into a harvest it dumps the water in the sump tray.

CME456AS-1C BIN FULL LIGHT ON BIN EMPTY MACHINE RUNS FOR 1 MIN THEN STOPS


clean the ice sensor on either side of the ice platen and just past the water trough. gently pry the sensor on each side out of their plug and work wiring out until you can get to the two led lights and clean scale off. limestone scale builds up and blocks the sensors.

My scotsman cm universal service controller keeps shutting off and refrigeration light blinks twice. But there is plenty of freon. What is the problem?


Most likely water inlet valve. When they get stuck open water continuously flows in preventing it from from freezing and therefore the controller thinks it's running and not getting cold enough so it cuts off on refrigeration. It will cut off on water if no water is detected.

I have a SCOTSMAN ICE MAKER MODEL NUMBER CM250AE-1E and the water coming into the machine never stops. It fills the tray until the water runs out the drain in the back of the machine.


I ran a service call on this model today with the same exact problem. I diagnosed it with a bad fill valve. The valve is not closing all the way and therefore lets water in all the time. With yours, the problem could be a bad timer or a bad microswitch or a bad valve. Hard to tell without looking.
Now to find the replacement valve for this thing...

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
