My Sub-Zero 315p undercounter ice maker makes ice but the ice melts in the bin and about 1 gallon of water an hour is running out the drain hose. What should I look at or change? Thanks

SOURCE: U-Line undercounter frost free ice maker refrigerator

All units made today have defrost timers to clear ice from the evaporator. Some of the ice sublimates...turns directly into humidity in the air in the box. It re-condenses in the ice tray area. It is possible that nothing is wrong other than excessive opening of the bin area or the defrost timer is running slow and staying on too long. You may also be consuming the ice too slowly. Can you either change the amount of ice in the bin by adding something to simulate part of the ice content or shut off ice production against low demand?

SOURCE: ICE MAKER SUB ZERO REFIGERATOR

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at repairclinic.com. logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.

SOURCE: sub zero particles in ice from ice maker

This issue occurs if your Ice Maker is not clean or have dust particals inside, follow the below steps in order to clean it properly:

Step 1 Lift the power bar located above the ice maker storage tray.

  • Step 2 Unplug the refrigerator.
  • Step 3 Allow the refrigerator and freezer to defrost. This will melt any large blocks of ice that have accumulated in the ice maker.
    Clean the Ice Machine
  • Step 1 Remove the ice machine storage tray.
  • Step 2 Dump any water in the ice machine storage tray.
  • Step 3 Wash the ice machine storage tray using warm, soapy water. Rinse and allow to dry completely.
  • Step 4 Sanitize the lines of the ice maker. Consult your manufacturer's directions for steps to do this, because it's not available on all models.
    Reassemble the Ice Maker
  • Step 1 Replace the ice machine storage tray.
  • Step 2 Plug the refrigerator into the outlet to restore power.
  • Step 3 Lower the internal power bar located just above the ice machine storage tray. This allows the ice machine to make new ice.

    Dce33a1bb ice maker makes ice but doesn't stay frozen


    Poor draining of water in the ice bin will cause a high rate of ice melting, Remember this is not a freezer but an ice maker. If the machine is making ice OK but it is melting to fast then check to make sure the bin is draining all the melt off and not letting water stand in bin causing ice to melt fast.

    Won't make ice


    The bin should fill up and the machine shut off in 24-36 hours from time it is turned on. If not the condenser coil may be dirty.
    1.Clean the coil this should be done every year.
    The bin brain may be partially restricted causing ice to melt faster.
    1. clean out the drain.
    The air flow to the condenser may be obstructed.
    check to make sure there is nothing covering up the grill or coil.

    Why does water not shut off after making ice


    Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.

    Water on floor


    The hose that goes into the drip pan to defrost the refer is plugged with stuff.
    take the back off and see the hose connection.A coat hanger works well.Usually a 1/4" hose.
    Also see where the bottom of the freezer drains into the drip pan.That may be plugged,also.
    The temp may be set too low and the condenser is frozen up,leaking water into the floor.Just ice stuck to the condenser.
    Possible that the condenser FAN stopped turning. That will ice up and melt at random:
    see/hear that the fan is working.
    If stuff gets into the fan,it will ice up,melt and make a mess on the floor.

    My cme 256a8 model scotsman ice melts to fast will not fill my 250 lb. bin in four days. What is the problem? in a hour run time it makes 7 lbs of ice and 4 lbs. water. in one dump cycle it makes 3 lbs...


    There are a couple of things to check. The machine must be level. You can remove the front cover and the plastic sheet that covers the plate where the ice is made. Check to see that the water is flowing from the manifold at the top of the plate. You may have to pop the hose off the end of that manifold to clean the water holes out. It must flow evenly over the plate. Probably the most common problem is the radiator coil there the fan draws air through is clogged up so that it can't dissapate heat properly. You should be able to feel a lot of hot air moving through the coils. The fan cycles on and off periodically to maintain a certain pressure in the freon. That is normal. Clean the fan coils and level the machine.

    Ice maker is working, but there is water in the bottom of bin


    You will need to pull out what ice you have in the bin to get to the drain. Once you have done that, take a hose and force water thru the drain. You may have to snake the drain if is more than a build-up of ice. Once the drain is working, clean out the bin with ice machine cleaner and sanitizer. Restart the machine and make sure no water is dripping from the evaporator above. If there is, it needs to be cleaned.

    Ice-o-matic wont' drain water from bin


    the purge valve empties the tray... the bin just drains with gravity... If you bin isn't draining... it must be clogged somewhere.
