Scotsman CME500WE-1A reservoir won't fill

I just got a used Scotsman CME500WE-1A and the reservoir will not will when I turn it on. I cleaned the little filter, and water will make it to the valve. Absolutely nothing seems to happen when I turn the power on. I have filled reservoir and still nothing. The only thing I can do to get any action is to hold a little button which I assume turns on the compressor and chills. Any guidance appreciated!

Here is a service manual for your icemaker. Pay attention to Initial Startup on page 10, as well as Electrical Sequence on page 11. If the t-tstat cap. tube from the holding bin is not working right, it can shut down the entire icemaker as well.

Scotsman ice machine slow water fill


Check to see if there is a water filter inline if so then change it. If not then check where the supply water line is hooked up to the machine pull line off and turn water on to make sure you have good water pressure. if you have good pressure then pull the water inlet valve and take it apart to make sure it is not stopped up with trash and that is it.

My Scotsman CE33A cycles on and fills with water then within 3 r 4 minutes the water volume goes down and wont spray up into mold.i can fill the resivor with water and it does fine until the water lev


In the water reservoir there is a tube that maintains the water height during operation. It fits in the overflow drain hole and keeps the water level at the proper level. This tube is either not installed into the bottom of the reservoir properly or it is broken.
Hope this helps

I have a Scotsman SCN60 nugget icemaker and when I add cleaning solution to reservoir it just stays there


Hi, Are you using Scotsman ice machine cleaner? and are you using the right amount?
1. Open the door and turn the ice machine control knob to off.
2. Scoop out all the ice, discard it.
3. Pour 4 ounces of Scotsman ice machine cleaner into the ice machine reservoir.
4. Turn the ice machine control to on.
5. Allow the machine to operate for about 2 to 3 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 the liner.
8. Rinse the liner with hot water.
9. Sanitize the bin liner.
Now a dirty evaporator plate will not stop it from making ice it will cause it to hang up on the plate during harvest cycle if machine is not making ice good then there is something else wrong but when you clean the machine also make sure you clean the condenser coil and fan if this is dirty this will cause it to slow down on production of ice.

Scotsman cme 506ae-1a harvest to soon. Where is the adjustment timer the harvest is also too long?


The water float rod in front of the unit serves as the fill stop as well as the harvest initiate. Difficult to remove to clean really well but not impossible. Harvest time is handled by the controller. First two or three harvests are long as the controller times out the harvests based on the blinking light of the bin full indication. After that is should get shorter.
