Water is going into the ice tray but once it freezes the cubes dont come out when the assembly rotates. When it cycles again to get more water the water spills into the dispenser & eventually the tray


can b one or two things wrong here
(1) how sure are u that water is not just continuously flowing into tray (at low rate) ??? reason I ask is a leaky solenoid valve is a very common failure on ice makers
(2) is arm that rotates thru ice tray ,not obstructed by anything ? ive seen Frozen pizza's hold a swing arm down and not allow it to raise to shield the ice tray in a dumping cycle (im speaking of "hold" arm ! thin steel arm that raises up in a ice dump cycle )
(3) of course could be a defective ice maker as well ? theres lots of motors and gears and switches inside there that could malfunction and prevent it from working

How do I adjust bridge thickness on ice o matic


Adjust the Timed freeze. The freeze timer is an adjustable timer used to control the ice bridge thickness. The freeze timer is factory set but may need to be adjusted upon initial start up of the machine. When time is added to the freeze timer the length of the freeze cycle is increased, therefore the ice bridge thickness is increased. When time is removed from the timer, the freeze is shorted and the ice bridge thickness is decreased. The freeze timer can be adjusted by sliding one or more switches to either the ON or OFF position to 1/8'' ( 3mm ). If bridge is too thick remove enough time from the timer to achieve proper thickness. If bridge is to thine add enough time to timer to achieve proper thickness.
NOTE: The freeze timer on ECP models is located on the circuit board. It operates and is adjusted as described above. Now if you have had this machine for awhile and it was making the right bridge thickness and is now making thinner ice i would look at the purge valve to make sure it is not letting water seep out of the sump tray during freeze cycle this will cause the sump tray to keep filling up with water and will cause thin ice.

I have some problem with our machine scotsman mv450 is to long product ice very slowly


Min freeze time 6 minutes and max freeze time 45 minutes. the 6 minutes is with perfect conditions. Example: Cycle time water temp was 50 degrees coming in to the water sump tray from water supply and the Ambient air temp surrounding the machine was a constant 70 deg than the machine should make ice every 10 - 12 minutes.now we know that the water temp from the water source is not going to be 50 deg and room temp will not be 70 deg all the time so the warmer water temp and ambient air temp is the longer it takes to make ice. one thing you wont to check is the water inlet valve to make sure it is not letting water seep through causing water temp not to cool down from running across evap plates. make sure the condenser coil is clean this will slow down production of ice.

On my VISB542SS the ice maker , water leaks into the drawer when ice is being made, Ihave removed the unit to check for leaks bot find none.


Hi,


The ice tray releases the ice because the mechanism twists the tray during the end of the cycle. Sediment builds up in the ice try over time and the smooth Teflon surface is no longer smooth, and the ice can get a "grip" on the tray. Then when the tray is twisted, a few cubes remain in the tray. When the measured amount of water then flows into the tray on the next cycle, it is too much. It freezes over the top of the tray, and the next time the tray is twisted, no ice falls out. When water is injected after this, it just runs off the top of the tray into the bin, freezing the ice in the bin. Replace the ice tray every 3-4 years with a new ice tray, and the problem disappears.


Do get back to us for any further query and do not forget to accept it.

Makes ice but will not dispence ice


Hello Kaboris3,

If your ice maker is making ice but fails to eject it, you may have a faulty mold release heater. If the ice tray is cycling in its loop... and is positioned to drop ice but the cubes are not being released, that will happen if the heater fails to turn on to relase them. Try power cycling the fridge to get things back in sync.. ( unplug the fridge for a few minutes then plug it back in ) sometimes that will get things started again. If that fails to work, you may have to defrost your freezer to meke sure the ice maker isn't stuck in one spot with ice... if you get too much water in the tray, it may spill over and freeze and restrict the ice tray conveyor from rotating. Depending on the model, you can remove the front access cover to the ice maker to see if the motor is running ( very slowly but should cycle if you watch it carefully).. Those are a few ideas that you may consider trying.. Hope that helps you fix your problem... worst case scenario is remove and replace the entire ice maker assembly.. most are plug n play assemblies and easily installed... Good Luck !

Ice maker not working


Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...

Ice Maker Overflowing


i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module
