01 - Freezer Temperature is Above 10 Degrees F (-12C)
If the freezer temperature is above 10 degrees Fahrenheit (-12C), the ice maker will not produce ice cubes efficiently. The freezer temperature should be set between 0 and 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 to -15C) for the ice maker to work properly. If the freezer temperature is too high, ensure that the condenser coils are clear of debris and the condenser fan is working properly. In addition, check to see if frost has accumulated on the evaporator coils. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, part of the defrost system has likely failed.

The trough gets refilled on each ice cycle, if it's circulating, then the water supply is adequate.Y

This is a problem when the thermistor in your icebin is not being satisfied.Now there is a break in the serial number to find out if you have a thermistor or a mechanical thermostat. If the serial number is before 03 (first 2 digits is the year)and the 2 digits between the dashes is 11(the month) the replace the bin thermostat. If newer then you need to replace board and thermistors.

U-line does make compressors as long as its not a r12 system. As far as the icemachine turn breaker off for a couple of min then try it. If same results then it could be a board.

This happens when the teflon on the mold is peeling.(flaking) It pushes water over the side. Otherwise check the clip in the back that holds the fill tube in the water cup. If the clip is missing then the fill tube could be splashing water over the mold

It does sound as if you may need a new ice maker. Other than that does the compressor come on to keep the ice cold? If so is it making any type of noises beyond the typical hum?

### My ice maker gets cold but will not make ice

I assume you have a good water supply ti the unit.

An internal switch of thermostat may have failed inside the ice maker head unit.

A good repair shop should be able to fix it.
If the unit is several years old it may be best to replace the icemaker.

Make sure they are factory authorised to fix uline products.

### My uline BCM45A ice maker is cold but does not make ice

This unit work on the thermostat. When the temperature gets between 10 - 15 degrees it will satisfy the control then turn the compressor off and icemaker will advance. If the control is set too cold then it will never satisfy the control. 1st make sure the thermostat is at the warmest setting. When the compressor cycles off look to see if the icemaker is advancing.If no then replace the control.
