SOURCE: My binsensor lingh is on but my bin is not full so my ice machine

I see you already said you bin sensor light was on. The drop door has a metal tab that waves over a sensor as it opens, if that part when it closes does not tell the board that door is shut the the board thinks the bin is full. I know you already know that but until I can talk to Scotsman on the phone or review their service manual for your model. One good thing about Scotsman is they are very helpful to their customers. Unless the machine is obsolete.

Clean the bin eyes found in the back of the ice machine where the shoot narrows. Look on the left and right sides of the unit, you will see plastic vanes that are pushed into rubber grommets. Just pull the eyes out and clean with ice machine cleaner.

How to clean a scotsman icemaker


WHAT SHOULDN'T BE DONE.
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice; objects like wine or beer bottles are not only unsanitary, but the labels may slip off and plug up the drain. Never allow the machine to operate without regular. The machine will last longer if it is kept clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least once per year,and preferable twice. Some water conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning of the ice making section, and some carpets or pets will dictate more frequent cleaning or the condenser.

WHAT SHOULD BE KEPT CLEAN?
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The outside cabinet & door.
2. The ice storage bin.
3. The condenser.
4. The ice making system.
5. The ice scoop.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CABINET.
Wipe off any spills on the surface of the door and handle as they occur. If anything spilled on the door of gasket dries onto the surface, wash with soap and warm water to remove.

HOW TO CLEAN THE ICE STORAGE BIN.
The ice storage bin should be sanitized occasionally. It is usually convenient to sanitize the bin after the ice making system has been cleaned, and the storage bin empty. A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of household bleach and two gallons of hot (95 deg F.-115 deg F.)Water. Use a clean cloth and wipe down the interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing solution, pour some of the solution down the drain. Allow to dry.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CONDENSER.
The condenser is like a radiator on a car, it has fins and tubed that can become clogged. To clean:
1. Remove the kick plate.
2. Locate the condenser surface.
3. Vacuum the surface, remove all dust and lint.
4. Replace the kick plate.

CLEANING THE SYSTEM.

HOW TO CLEAN THE ICE MAKING SYSTEM.
1. Open the door and turn the ice machine control knob off.
2. Scoop out all of the ice, either discard it or save it in a ice chest or cooler.
3. Pour 4 ounces of Scotsman ice Machine Cleaner ( available from a local Scotsman Distributor or Dealer, ask for part number 19-0343-06- an 8 ounce bottle) into the ice machine reservoir.
4. Turn the ice machine control to ON.
5. Allow the machine to operate for about 2 hours.
6. Pour hot water into the bin to melt the ice that has formed. That ice will likely be white and frosty looking.
7. Clean the bin liner of mineral scale by mixing some ice machine cleaner and hot water, and using that solution to scrub the scale off of the liner.
8. Rinse the liner with hot water.
9. Sanitize the bin interior.
10. Replace the ice removed in step 2.
The ice scoop should be washed regularly, wash it just like any other food container.
WARNING; Scotsman ice machine cleaner contains acids. These compounds may cause burns. If swallowed,DO NOT induce vomiting. Give large amounts of water or milk. Call Physician immediately. In case of skin contact,flush with water. Keep out of the reach of children. Always follow manufactures directions.

I have a Scotsman SCN60 nugget icemaker and when I add cleaning solution to reservoir it just stays there


Hi, Are you using Scotsman ice machine cleaner? and are you using the right amount?
1. Open the door and turn the ice machine control knob to off.
2. Scoop out all the ice, discard it.
3. Pour 4 ounces of Scotsman ice machine cleaner into the ice machine reservoir.
4. Turn the ice machine control to on.
5. Allow the machine to operate for about 2 to 3 hours.
6. Pour hot water into the bin to melt the ice that has formed. That ice will likely be white and frosty looking.
7. Clean the bin liner of mineral scale by mixing some ice machine cleaner and hot water, and using that solution to scrub the scale off the liner.
8. Rinse the liner with hot water.
9. Sanitize the bin liner.
Now a dirty evaporator plate will not stop it from making ice it will cause it to hang up on the plate during harvest cycle if machine is not making ice good then there is something else wrong but when you clean the machine also make sure you clean the condenser coil and fan if this is dirty this will cause it to slow down on production of ice.

Can`t get scotsman cme250 to work properly. either doesn`t make ice or won`t harvest ice. when cube size thermostat is turned up so it makes ice it takes long time to start forming cubes. electrical...


The problem could be a series of things beginning with ambient temperatures too high, fan not working properly, if water cooled there could be a problem with that also. As a technician I would first look over the condenser and make sure air flow is proper and then attach my gauges to see the suction and discharge pressures. I have found many restaurants that keep their ice machines in the hot kitchen where it creates high ambient temperatures and allows grease from the grill to collect on the condenser blocking air flow. Yes under charged is possible or over charged but the best and most effective route is to call a Scotsman Certified Technician. I have worked on Scotsman's and they are very tricky to fix unless you know the process of event. If water is not pre-filtered there is a chance that the water control valve may be stuck open allowing warm water to continue flowing causing these symptoms. Here Is a=> Scotsman CME250 Ice Machine User Manual If unable to find these simple checks above or from the manual and still having problems it will need to be time to call a Technician. If you do not have Adobe Reader Click Here=> Adobe Reader X (10.1.0) Tell me what you find and please don't rate me if I was unable to solve this from here. I am here to help you up and to the point of calling Scotsman for addition help. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Should a scotsman ice machine automatically stop making ice once the bin is full


Yes, all ice machines have a means of automatic shut down when the bin is full. What is the model number of your machine and your bin?

Not making ice


If your machine is air cooled it is possible that the condenser fan motor is not running when necessary or the fan switch that turns the fan on by pressure may be defective.
