Question about U-Line Icemaker

1 Answer

I inherited a Uline SP-18 icemaker with our RV. Was purchased in 1998 but looks to be in great condition. The compressor kicked in one time but no water would go in unit. Got real cold and I manually added water to tray. It froze and dumped the ice but then compressor kicked out and will not come back on. Is it the water valve the cause of no water in unit. What about the compressor not kicking in? Would like manual to unit.

Re:The compressor kicked in one time but no water would go in unit.

As first operation defrost completely the unit. If unit had water in lines when it was connected , then water may have frozen inside the lines.

The compressor not kicking back in can be result of a bad compressor (starter capacitor gone), or simply a jammed temperature control. If defrosting does not fix the ice problem, check the inlet located at the back, there should also be a solenoid valve to open water into the icemaker.

9/20/09 I just had the same problem with the same model

With rooftop air-conditioning units two issues are commons and that not clean unit that slow the fan and that effect the compressor, check the fan and see if the housing clean and no debris and as far as the compressor it is don and you need to replace it, I am sorry to tell you the news but on the other hand you can get used one now very cheep and they do work good. See if you contact local dealer that serves them and ask for used one or call campaign world and ask them to look for one for you…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

Compressor will not start but the fan runs on RV air condition unit Mod 7332B896 Coleman

If you can hear compressor try to start, then kick out, then I'd say capacitor needs replace, but if you don't hear anything (moan or groan) from compressor, then I'd be looking at a new relay, or at least testing it.

Uline icemaker compressor runs very hot - slow ice production

if the ice production is slow first try to set it on a warmer temperature. Now if its frosted up then you will need to defrost it. Also check the fan to see if its running. if yes is the condensor clean? If yes then check temperature in bucket. 10 to 15 degrees is ideal for this model.

My ULine icemaker just started triping the GFCI plug.

Ground fault should not be used when you have a compressor plugged to it. The start amps can trip a ground fault. You can try to plug the unit on a regular outlet and if it doesnt trip the breaker then unit should be good. You can try to replace the ground fault if you need it (but make sure you have a higher amperage on the new one.)

Ice maker (Uline) just stopped working, not freezing, no noise.

U-line does make compressors as long as its not a r12 system. As far as the icemachine turn breaker off for a couple of min then try it. If same results then it could be a board.
