If unit is not coming out of harvest it should try two more time and lock machine out. First look at at the bin full eyes this is what stops harvest when ice drops into bin. if eyes test good then replace the controller.

HOW DOES A MODEL 315P ICE MACHINE GO INTO HARVEST?


The ice machine has a HARVEST TIMER. You can adjust the harvest time, it comes from the factory for 3 minutes. You should not have to adjust it 3 minutes is plenty of time if every thing is working right. If the machine is operating making ice but not falling in storage bin then check these possible cause.
1. ICE may be stuck in the evaporator and the unit is " frozen up "
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Clean and sanitize.
Possible Cause: Harvest time set too short - timer needs adjustment.
2. Harvest timer bad: replace harvest timer.

How to get ice going


First is the machine making ice ? If it is making ice is it thick enough so the water comes in contact with the ice thickness probe. This has to happen so the machine will know it needs to go into a harvest. You should not have to fores it into a harvest it should be doing it on it on. There is a harvest button on the CM3 controller but when you push it its going into a harvest and when it finishes the harvest it will shut the machine OFF. I really need more info. What is it doing or not doing?

Scotsman CM3 does not harvest and does not refill


Remove the ice thickness probe that is hanging at the top of the evaporator plate and clean really good put it back push the freeze tab. If the ice is still getting to thick and not causing the machine to go into a harvest then replace the probe , make sure when you do this to set the thickness by using a 1/8 inch drill bit, lay the bit flat between the evaporator plate and the probe turn the 1/4 screw in or out to achieve the 1/8 inch. The probe is what sets the machine into a harvest, if the ice is not building up enough to cause the water to come into contact whit the probe long enough then it will not go into a harvest. if the ice is getting to thick and the water should be running over the probe it should have went into a harvest if not then the probe is not sensing it to tell the CM3 to go into a harvest.

Sce170a-1a wont harvest


This machine has a cube size control. Which tells the machine when to go into a harvest. there is a harvest switch did you try to force it into a harvest and if you did, did it harvest. depending on ambient temperature from start of freeze cycle to harvest it should be making ice every 15 to 18 minuets and then go into a harvest. so start the ice machine and time it , run it for 18 minuets and force into a harvest. after ice drops check the ice bridge thickness. Bridge thickness should be about 3/16'' the ice dimple must not be DEEPER than 1/16". If this is good then we need to look at what is not working to harvest ice. The cube size control is a reverse - acting thermostat that controls the start of the timed freeze cycle. It must be set properly to prove the correct size cube bridge. When it is closed, an indicator light on the control board will be on. If you force it into a harvest and it harvest the ice with no problems and the ice is at the right thickness then replace the cube size control, but if dose not harvest the ice and you see the ice is at a good thickness and not to thick because if it is to thick it will freeze to every thing and will not drop. SYMPTOM. Unit freezes, but will not try to harvest. POSSIBLE CAUSE: Cube size control will not close; to check: Unplug water pump, switch unit OFF and then ON, in about 2 minutes the timed freeze light on the control board should be ON. PROBABLE FIX: If timed freeze light does not go ON, replace cube size control. SYMPTOM #2: Timed freeze light glows, but after 4 minutes unit dose not power hot gas nor purge valves Then replace control board.

Sce275 wont harvest runs and makes icewhat causes this problem this has a new pump and watervalve installed thanks


You float valve may be stuck open. Even slowly letting in water will keep the machine from making a good cube. I also belive the uses a flote switch to send it into harvest so if the water level does not go down from making ice it will not go into harvest.
Hope this helps

The ice maker just stopped making ice today. It's made ice great for the past 3 years. Everything else works.


If the water pressure for water through the door is low I would check your saddle valve that taps into the line. I would next check your icemaker fill tube to make sure it is not frozen. If it is then you will need to replace the saddle valve because it is due to low water pressure.
You can try to manually harvest the icemaker by turning the power switch off-on-off-on and then pushing the lever in three times in a row. This will harvest the icemaker. If the icemaker harvests and the rake moves then its most likely still good. (if theres a batch of cubes frozen in the ice maker then its def bad.) If you get it to harvest and no water comes in then you will know its a water supply issue.
Replacing the inlet valve and saddle valve will most likely correct the issue. You may only need a new saddle valve and they only cost about 10 bucks.
Let me know if this helps _MJ_

Whirlpool ref in door ice not making ice


check the teperature of the freezer compartment . the ice harvest actuates on teperature. and refill with water at the end of harvest cycle.. a lot of times the condensor under your fridge can become plugged with dust and the freezer teperature never achives low enough to harvest ice..good luck
