I have a Scotsman CME 506 ice maker. After running a cleaning cycle it won't run. After resetting the freeze light blinks and nothing happens. The water inlet valve never opens (the sump is current


CM3 Operational Sequence.
From Off, push and release the freeze button.
1. If sump is full,water pump starts.If sump is not full,water valve opens to fill it.
2. Compressor starts when sump is full.Air cooled fan motor starts too.
3. water pump stops early in freeze cycle for 30 seconds.
4. Sump refills after pump starts.
5. In low ambient condition,fan motor may begin to cycle on and off.
6. Freeze continues until water level in sump drops to preset point. Exceptions: SCE275 must fill sump two more times.
7. Fan may shut off before the end of freeze.
8. Harvest begins. Hot gas valve opens,pump stops.
9. Pump restarts, inlet water valve opens to fill and overflow the reservoir.
10. Harvest continues for preset first cycle harvest time.
11. If bin is not full, cycle repeats ( compressor stays on). If bin is full, unit shuts off at the end of harvest.
OK with that out of the way unless you unplugged any wires cleaning the machine should not have caused any problems. First cut off water and pull water supply line from water inlet valve look in the end of valve there is a screen in there it could be stopped up. If the valve screen is not stopped up then put supply water line back on and turn water back on. power the CM3 controller off. push freeze button. now with a voltage meter check at the water inlet valve to make sure you are getting power to the valve.If you are then either valve is stopped up or valve is bad. If you are not getting power to valve then replace the CM3 controller now make sure the bin full light is not on because if it is this will not let controller go back to a freeze cycle.

Scotsman ice maker making more water than ice


Check water inlet valve to make sure it is not letting water seep through causing water to overflow water sump tray and dumping into bin. and the machine will not produce much ice.

Water diagnose light blinking 0n cm3 scotsman ice machine even after changing water level sensor


Is the sump tray full of water? or is it not filling up fast enough? Water level sensor lets control board it needs water or its full of water. If machine is not getting enough water or slow filling then check the water filter, if water is flowing good through filter good then pull water line off of the water inlet valve to make sure there is no trash blocking water at inlet. If not then make sure the water solenoid is getting power call from board to solenoid, if getting 115v to coil and slow to no water to sump then replace valve, if no power to valve then replace board.

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.

Water keeps running


where is the water running on the ice head or is this a remote water cooled condenser? If water is running all the time at the ice head into the sump tray and overflowing into the ice bin then check the water inlet valve ether rebuild or replace valve but make sure the water low sensor is not calling for water when the sump tray is full of water.

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.

Scotsman cm250ae-1c making very wet ice


It might be a dirty or damaged ice tray. When in the harvest mode the hot gas will be directed through the tray untill the cubes fall tripping the reset to start the freezing cycle again. If the cubes are sticking because of rust or scale buildup the cubes get "overmelted" causing the "wet cubes".CAREFULLY clean the ice tray . Use vinegar or ice machine cleaner do not use any cleaning pads steel wool or sand paper as this will ruin ice tray. Also make sure icemaker is level both ways. Hope this helps.

MV450 Scotsman Ice machine


1. bin full when bin is empty means that the bin control sensor is dirty or need to be replaced. But since your having problems with water over flowing also i would bet that your machine needs a good cleaning. is you water full light on or off? if off and water sump try is full then you need to pull water sensor out and clean or replace it. if water sensor light is on then you need to replace water inlet valve.

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.
