SOURCE: MY SCOTSMAN ICE MACHINE CO33O FREEZING CYCLE IS TOO SHORT AND IS MAKING THIN ICE

There is usually a sensor that the cubes will touch after the cubes thickness builds to a certain point. This sensor should be adjustible.

Short freeze


Ice is to thin. Check to make sure water inlet valve is not letting water go through valve during freeze cycle. Make sure condenser coil is clean and condenser fan is running. Check the hot gas valve to make sure it is not bypassing during freeze cycle.

Defy 620 litre side by side fridge freezer freezer not freezing or defrosting ice packs but when ice is remove than freeze until ice packs again


Try unplugging the refrigerator for 24 hours (Of course, remove any food.) Be prepared for it to leak. Then make sure the coils and door gaskets are clean. (A thin coat of vasoline applied to the door gaskets should help).

Code 8 blinking machine making very thin ice?


Short freeze, thine ice.
Cause: Grounded ice thickness sensor.
Solution: Check sensor for dirt and position. Clean and adjust gap to evaporator surface using 13/64" drill bit as a gauge, lay flat between evaporator plate and ice thickness probe and adjust 1/4 screw 1/8 of a turn clock wise at a time after every harvest cycle. You don't wont the ice any thicker than 13/64 or thinner either. If you are still having problem after cleaning probe then replace it but you will still have to adjust the probe.

Mv 450 scotsman ice machine


Remove the front panel to the ice maker. There should be a control panel that will give you some more info on the fault. I am guessing that you are dealing with a short freeze cycle, thin ice, or harvest error.

English instructions for saivod fhs186 ice maker


DO THE BASICS:
Change the water filter
Add ice machine cleaner and go by the directions.
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.
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 is empty.
A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of
household bleach and two gallons of hot (950F. -
1150F.) water. Use a clean cloth and wipe the
interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing
solution, pour some of the solution down the drain.
Allow to air dry.

How to clean the condenser.
The condenser is like the radiator on a car, it has
fins and tubes that can become clogged. To clean:
1. Remove the kickplate.
2. Locate the condenser surface.
3. Vacuum the surface, removing all dust and lint.
Caution: Do not dent the fins.
4. Replace the kickplate.
Winterizing
1. Clean the machine as explained on the next
page.
2. Turn off the water supply.
3. Drain the water reservoir. See page 24, Spray
Pump Repair and follow the instructions to remove
the pump hose (step 2, bottom hose only).
4. Disconnect the incoming water line at the inlet
water valve.
5Remove control box cover and turn the timer
into the harvest cycle.
6. With the machine operating, blow air through
the inlet water valve; a tire pump could do the job.
7. Drain pump models should have about 1¤2 gallon
of RV antifreeze (propylene glycol) poured into the
ice storage bin drain.
Note: Automotive antifreeze must NOT be used.
8. Replace control box cover. Switch off and
unplug the machine.

CUBE ADJUSTMENTS
There are three items that may be adjusted: Cube
Size, Harvest Time, and Bin Level. Note: Cube
Size and Harvest Time adjustments should only be
done by a qualified service person.
Cube size control.
The cube size control should only be adjusted to
bring the cubes to the correct shape, the overall
size cannot be adjusted. Try to adjust the cube
size control when the ice machine is in the harvest
cycle, or in the first 10 minutes of the freeze cycle.
1. Open the door and remove the control box
cover.
2. Locate the cube size adjustment screw, and to
make fuller cubes, turn the screw clockwise about
1/4 turn. This will make the freezing cycle longer.
3. To shorten the freezing cycle and make cubes
that are not as full, turn the adjustment screw 1/4
turn counterclockwise.
4. After the next freezing cycle, the cubes should
have responded to the adjustment, if another
adjustment is required, do it early in the freeze
cycle.
