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.

You're bridge thickness is set to high, lower the bridge on the sensor located when you open the front door behind the water curtain on the top. If the sensor is scaled badly replace it.

Try cleaning the radiator for the ice box compressor it could be tripping it's thermal overload switch, if that doesn't work check to see if the termostat setting is in the range for the compressor to turn on when the ice starts melting.

The thickness sensor is shorting, making the machine continually harvest. Clean it and dry it. If it still happens, replace the sensor.

Icemaker runs constantly but never makes enough ice to shot off. Too much water spraying out and melting the ice. What to do? Have run through cleaner cycle several times. Disassembled and cleaned also.

Process of elimination. ... ice thickness sensor (adjust and clean).... water outlet bar with holes that runs down the ice maker plate (make sure all the holes are not clogged and point to correct angle to keep from splashing) check those 1st.. the other steps are more involve if you have refrigeration tools to check refrigerate level, etc.. let me know if this will help 1st

Manitowoc ice maker does not produce ice

If it doesn't run at all open the front panel and peer inside of the control box. See if there are any indicator lights on the control board lit or blinking. Check the plastic water curtain on the machine and make sure that the magnet is in place on the bottom right. Will need more information as to what lights are lit. Printed on the board next to each light is its corresponding function or response.
