There must be something coming in the water line. The only other possible source for this contamination would be some lube coming down from the circulation pump. This is an easy part to change but you could pull the white cover (back right side of trough) to have a look at it.

I have a scotsman CM3 with aquaarmor ice machine. There is a constant trickle of water coming from each leg. Why is the happening???


Try taking off a side or back panel and see if there is frost building up. If frost is present, it could be low on refrigerant.
If there is condensation, it could be the insulation is saturated with water allowing thermal transfer to condense water out of the air.

It is time to run a ice machine cleaner through the unit, instruction should be on the door. When you get a build up is causes your ice to bind to the evaporator plate and cause this problem. Most ice machines require cleaning every 6 month to prevent this. Use nickel safe cleaner only, and most of the time this will correct the ice binding on that evaporator plate.
I hope this helps

You have biologics growing within the water circuit somewhere. Shut off the water valve and remove the hose from the valve and the fridge so you can empty it; make a 2 tbls. bleach per gallon of water solution and clean out the hose by soaking. Retain some of the disinfectant within the hose when re-attaching so that it flows through the rest of the system. I would recommend replacing the filter if yours has one (some do not). Open the valve and make a tray or two of ice, repeat if needed to kill the algea.

ICEU220HA1 ice machine is half full of water - water fills up through drain hole in the tub when cleaning/purging pump


You have a restriction in the drain line beyond the ice machine and the water is backing up into the unit. You can try some Drain-o or snake the drain.

Lack of water in tray.


check and make sure that as it makes ice that no water is spilling over or out of the freeze tray. only a set amount of water comes in to refill resevoir. if you lose water during the freeze cycle the water level gets below the blades of the pump and it will sound like the pump is tearing up.

Check the bridge size adjustment at the top of the metal grid that the ice forms on. This determines the size of the cubes. Whenever you make a repair on the water system, especially on an older unit. make sure the unit is clean. A little bit of calcium deposits (or that other nasty looking stuff) getting into the passage ways will make it run erratically, and can drive you nuts.
