Question about Scotsman CSW45 15" Ice Maker with 26 lb. Ice Storage Capacity, 44 lb Ice Production per Day, Drain R...

1 Answer

I have a 500LB scotsman machine. The machine runs fine and makes ice. However, after about four cycles the refrigerate light with come on and the machine cuts off. I have cleaned it "properly". I have check the pressures (high-110psi, low- 5psi). If you hold the "off" button and reset the machine it will run four about another 4 cycles. Why is it doing this? What needs to be looked at?

The manual has an exploded parts diagram use as guide to locate parts.
First check the timer, you can manually turn it through a cycle or watch it rotate on its own.
Check the water inlet solenoid valve. if all looks well and you have definite water flow past the valve, then
Check spray pump. You have to remove the rear panel. The pump has a fan on the top. spin the fan if it is at all tight the ;pump is bad.
I have owned 2 of these units and have had failures of all of the above parts over the years.

Need to know how to fix a csw 45 Scotsman ice making machine


Hi, first make sure the switch is not in the clean position but to on. If it is in the on position and the water is circulating over evaporator plate and is running back into the water sump tray and compressor is running as you stated then check to make sure the hot gas valve is not letting hot gas leak through during freeze cycle, the way you can check is after start up wait about 5 minutes and check the temp entering the hot gas valve and the temp on the other side of the valve if temp is the same then valve is bad. The next thing to check is the refrigerant level this only can be done by adding service valves and weighing out the charge to see if it is low, if low then there is a leak. The freeze cycle is as follows. The compressor, fan motor and water pump are all operating and stay in a freeze cycle until the evaporator thermistor reaches 6.5 deg F. That signals the control board to place the unit into a harvest cycle.

If it is going into harvest but the ice is to thick causing it to stick and not letting it drop then you need to adjust the ice thickness sensor it dose not need to be no more distance than 1/8 of an inch between face of sensor and evaporator plate you can use a 1/8 drill bit flat between sensor face and ice plate use a 1/4 nut driver to adjust the sensor.

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.
