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.

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.

Manitowoc sd0502a has power but no water coming in


#1 check if the water level light is illuminated on the board.If illuminated and there is no water in the trough, replace the water probe.
#2 Check for water pressure into the machine( turn off power and water. Disconnect the water line from your machine and put line into a bucket and turn on water supply pressure and flow.) If you have water in the bucket then you have either no voltage to the valve or the valve is bad. If you can use a meter and know your machine voltage you can check the valve this way. Another way is to turn the machine on and listen for the valve to click after a couple of minutes. These valves can be disassembled and cleaned if plugged up. I use a pointy tool to clear the orifice in the valve.

I have a Manitowoc QD0212A 120v. It makes ice, but after the bin gets full, it appears that the compressor does not run to cool the ice box. Is there some type of relay or solenoid that could be bad?


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.
