Hi,
The ice thickness is too thin...
turn the screw on the ice sensor IN or clockwise about 1/8 turn at a time till you get the right thickness...give it a couple of dumps before making another adjustment after doing the first one...be careful as the sensor is very sensitive and can be knocked out of wack very easily...

Remove side panel on left. Dump valve and drain hose usually blocked with silt, but may be dump valve coil open circuit. No float switch, water level sensor above tray.

This is a QD0452A ice maker it will not cycle properly, water will not shut off, have to watch cycle and manually shut off water ,let ice dump, then turn water back on.


It can be a variety of problems. The door bin switch should turn off the unit when it senses that the door is open (bin full of ice). It is a curtain that opens out to release the ice.
Next it could be the water inlet solenoid, it energizes to allow water in for the ice making process. If it stays constantly on then that would be your problem.
Look at the control board light indicators and you'll know what cycle it is on. These parts are energized and seek help if needed.

Manitowoc Ice machine only makes 2/3 bin of Ice and shuts off


The unit shuts off based on the magnetic reed switch in the plastic curtain on the front of the evaporator. If the ice is not falling as one single sheet with about 1/4"-3/8" of a bridge conecting all of the cubes then the ice is too thin. When the ice falls (in a single sheet of ice) if there is enough ice in the bin to hold that ice up and keep the curtain open the unit shuts down. A full bin may only be what appears to be 2/3 or 3/4 of a bin full because the ice sheet is propped up behind the curtain. If the ice sheet is too thin and does not fall as a single sheet more often than not a single cube or a piece of a cube can get caught between the curtain and the evaporator plate. This can shut the unit down for several hours until that piece melts and the curtain closes again.

I have a model qd0452a manitowoc and it will not stop making ice


Very unusual for one of these to not stop. There is a magnetic proximity switch located on the bottom right side of the water curtain that serves to both cancel a harvest/drop and to shut the unit down on a full bin. When a drop occurs the control board sees a open and then close of the switch and restarts a freeze mode. If the ice drops and the bin is full the curtain is blocked by the ice behind it from closing again and the unit shuts down on a full bin indication. If the curtain does not open and close after 3 hours it would lock the unit out. Therefore I assume that the switch and the board are working. Most likely you either have the unit on a non-Manitowoc bin or are missing a deflector plate in the Manitowoc bin and the ice is falling out of a service door.
