CM and CM3 have sound shields that fit in front of the evaporators. In most cases they can be cleaned with Hot /water and ice machine cleaner extra strengh ( clear). Not costly to replace.

Unless they are terrible you can clean the curtains. What you do is put icemaker cleaner in the icemaker and run it through a cycle. I don't know how much the curtains cost.

Why my scotsman ice machine goes off on the refridgertion light


This could be several things. This means it has tried to harvest the ice 3 consecutive times before the machine has locked out.
1. Likely Cause, Ice bridge thickness too small, not enough ice to open curtain. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check and adjust if needed.
2. LIKELY CAUSE, ice bridge too large, ice frozen to evaporator frame. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check and adjust if needed.
3. LIKELY CAUSE, Purge valve does not open, water melts ice bridge, not enough ice to open curtain. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check purge valve during harvest.
4. LIKELY CAUSE, incomplete ice formation. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check water distributor for partially plugged holes. The machine needs to be cleaned and sanitized every 6 months.
5. LIKELY CAUSE, Curtain out of position. PROBABLE SOLUTION, check curtain for swing restriction.
6. LIKELY CAUSE, Curtain switch dose not open when curtain does. PROBABLE SOLUTION, Check switch with ohmmeter if bad replace.
7. LIKELY CAUSE. Machine in very cold ambient. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Move machine to a warmer location.
8. LIKELY CAUSE. Hot gas valve does not open during harvest. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check hot gas valve with a volt meter during harvest mode to see if you are getting correct voltage to it. If not then replace control board . IF yes and valve is not opening then replace valve.
9. LIKELY CAUSE. Harvest assist probe out of position - ejector pin not retracted. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check harvest assist mechanism - spring should retract pin.
10. LIKELY CAUSE. Damaged evaporator. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check evaporator surface. Make sure the plates where they intercept each other is not loose this will cause ice to hang up. check to make sure the nickel is not peeling off, if so then the plate will need to be replaced.
11. LIKELY CAUSE. Fan motor stays on during harvest. PROBABLE SOLUTION. Check controller using test mode. If this dose not help you then give me the model number so i know what machine you have.

The ice machine continues to leak water into the area that the ice falls into


If the model is correct in the heading CM30? The problem is the water curtain. These are around $10 at the Scotsman parts house. When installing one always reuse the stainless steel piece that goes to help keep the curtain closed. Look at your old curtain for holes near the top, a deformed end not flapping back to cover the spray area.

The spray under the - behind the curtain should be in the shape of a cone.(Total of 2 nozzles). If not remove the nut and you will find a "spinner" it may have sediment inside it. The nut is knurled and hollow so the the nozzle unscrews with the knurled nut you'll have to hold the nozzle with a wrench and unscrew the nut with a pliers or other gripper. Don't deform the nut though.

If this helps you get the confidence to repair or the knowledge that you need a tech to help you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fix ya.

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.
