My Scotsman CE33A cycles on and fills with water then within 3 r 4 minutes the water volume goes down and wont spray up into mold.i can fill the resivor with water and it does fine until the water lev


In the water reservoir there is a tube that maintains the water height during operation. It fits in the overflow drain hole and keeps the water level at the proper level. This tube is either not installed into the bottom of the reservoir properly or it is broken.
Hope this helps

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.

Machine keeps icing up and switching off


When you say ices up do you mean the line ices up back to the compressor. is water overflowing over sump tray? or is it dumping out drain? If you are not getting water over the evaporator plate then it will frost up the evaporator plat all the way back to the compressor.if the water is dumping into the drain during freeze cycle check the dump valve this will not let sump tray stay full of water. make sure water filter is good as this will not let sump tray stay full fast enough. is water pump pumping water over the evap plate?

On a water cooled scotsman ice machine, should the water be running out of drain line contiuously as its making ice? be cause it just runs all the damn time and thats a huge water bill ...


On a water-cooled system, by design the heat from the machine is being transferred to running water that carries the heat away. Some installations pump this "waste" water to a heat-exchanger or cooling tower (typically on a rooftop), where the heat is transferred again, this time to the air. The water with the heat removed is then recycled back to the machine, where the process is repeated continuously. There is thus no "wasted" water.
If your cooling water is just running down the drain, that's a terrible waste of water and money. Try to find a way of recycling the water by removing the heat and re-using it. Think of ways to use the "free" heat in the water.
Alternatively, buy a proper rooftop heat exchanger and pump the water through it, or, get an old car radiator or air conditioning condenser and a decent blower, and make your own.
Remember that your machine needs constant cool water in order to avoid overheating the system.

Seems to make ice but will not keep it cold therefore it melts. It does this about 3 or 4 times a year but after staying off it will start working again


The only thing that keeps the ice cold is the ice itself. If the icemaker isn't making ice fast enough then the ice will melt before more ice drops to keep it cold. In other words the motor ice the slower the ice melts. Now if the door gasket isn't sealing properly then the ice could melt to fast. Also the ice is going to melt some and when it does the water has got to drain out the bottom. If the water doesn't drain the ice will be sitting in water and will speed up the melting process dramatically. I hope this helps!

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.

Hoshizaki ice machine makes ice but won't drain. Makes ice but won't drain properly, after about 3 or 4 days water starts leaking out of the machine onto the floor. Removed all ice and water and repeated...


My first question is, does the drain have a vent in it? If not, you may need to install one to be able to break the vacuum experienced when the unit flushes after a drop of ice. The vent will be a tee off the drain and a stand pipe that goes up about 5-10" vertical. My next question is has the drain in the plumbing (not the ice machine) been flushed, snaked or tested to see if it can handle the amount of water the ice maching dumps?

a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water
