I'm not sure what you mean by a series 100. Manitowoc series are by the model number first letter. B-series, Q-series, J-series, etc. A 100 lb Q-series would be the most recent. If memory serves they started with A, C, E, G, B, J, S, and are now on Q. You can get most of the service books on their website here.

Sorry I cant be of more help without a complete model number.

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.

How can i fix my manitowoc qm45a runs water but won't freeze the water?


The thickness sensor is shorting, making the machine continually harvest. Clean it and dry it. If it still happens, replace the sensor.

Ice machine locks out.


After ice is produced (usually about 12-15 minutes) harvest is initiated and the ice should drop off of the plate and the curtain opens and closes in 90 seconds or so. If it takes three minutes and the curtain doesn't open and close the unit will go back into freeze. It will do this three times and then lock out.

First - does the unit make ice and start harvest in 12-15 minutes? Second - Is the ice thick enough? it should be one continuous slab with about 1/4" bridge across the front of the slab. IF both of these answers are yes then the plate is either bad or it needs cleaning. You need nickel safe ice machine cleaner and probably an experienced technician to determine if the plate is worth cleaning or is worn out.

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.

My manitowoc series 420 has a code telling me the compressor discharge temperature


Which code is that? I don't see that in the service manual. There is an E09 that indicates that during the first six minutes of freeze the discharge temperature was below the average of the last 6 cycles. I have searched from E01 to E31 and don't see the code you indicate but I would say you either have a low refrigerant charge, a flooding TXV that is allowing too much refrigerant flow into the evaporator and not allowing enough flow to be diverted into harvest, or a weak compressor. Reset the unit and check the temperatures on the display while its running and time a freeze cycle. Should take about 15 minutes to make ice.

What tells the pure advantage ice maker on the electrolux m/n ew23bcp71is0 to call for water the water valve is good the tube is not frozen and the icemakr will cycle and harvest when forced to fill m


The ice maker itself calls for the water after the harvest cycle and if it is not filling then you will need to replace the ice maker since there are no serviceable part on the unit. Here is the ice maker to order.

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.

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.

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.
