You will need to pull out what ice you have in the bin to get to the drain. Once you have done that, take a hose and force water thru the drain. You may have to snake the drain if is more than a build-up of ice. Once the drain is working, clean out the bin with ice machine cleaner and sanitizer. Restart the machine and make sure no water is dripping from the evaporator above. If there is, it needs to be cleaned.

My Icemaker won't keep the ice once it makes it

What make and model of ice maker do you have?
Is the unit making ice? If so, about how much?

Most commercial bin type ice makers are not engineered to maintain the ice once it drops into the bin. Older ice is intended to melt and the water should drain out of the bin as new ice is deposited on top.

It may be that you are consuming ice at a rate greater than the unit is designed to produce ice, or that the unit is not set to the highest ice production rate (if adjustable).

Alternatively, if the inside of the bin is hot (warm) you may have another problem with the unit (e.g., gasket leak). Was the unit previously working? If so, are you aware of any events that took place just prior to the change?

Some units have a defrost or a cleaning mode, which will actually generate heat inside the unit. Make sure the unit is set to the correct mode.

Freezer forming ice stalagtite under ice tray

Sounds like the ice maker is allowing too much water in to the tray. There is an adjustment screw under the front cover of the ice maker. A 1/8 turn at a time counter clockwise will shorten the time the water delivery solenoid is open. It is possible that something foreign is keeping the solenoid valve to stay open too long, so it should be inspected too.

You have to remove the bin to access the inner workings and the hi-temp safety is strapped to the suction line. You just look for two black wires disappearing into the line insulation to find it.

To remove the bin you: 1. Unplug the unit. 2. Take the top off and remove the sliding bin door, 3. Remove the front bottom louver, 4. Look straight back and disconnect the drain hose from the bottom of the bin, 5. In the louver opening look in the top corner and there will be a screw in each side going straight up into the bottom of the bin. Remove these two screws and lift the bin up and out.

If you are going to run the unit with the bin off you will have to cover the condenser area so that the air is forced over the condenser and be prepared to catch any ice that is produced.

Ice-o-matic wont' drain water from bin

the purge valve empties the tray... the bin just drains with gravity... If you bin isn't draining... it must be clogged somewhere.
