    I have a question, sometimes, the scotsman ice machine stays in "harvest time blinks" and then turns off the machine, then a few seconds later starts the machine again. is this normal?

    You wasted my time for six minutes and 11 seconds and then time it takes me to dictate this into my Apple iPad. You didn’t mention the model of your ice machine, the part number of the harvest switch and it took you five minutes to see you fixed it with a bungee cord. What an idiot!

    Ice bridge thickness is too thick. Do i just move swirch settings to half cube settings?

      Would start by saying, ok guys what I want to talk about today is water wetness.

      Here at Dave Jones refrigeration we do a 12 point water wetness test on all your equipment using the latest imanfold technology. We determine if you have fresh water, salt water, how wet the water is. Check calcium, minerals and potassium levels. Give us a call today!!

      Of course he does made sure my compressor was phased correct and the water was wet enough to make ice

    If you leave a cup or scoop inside the machine, it will end up buried at the bottom as the ice inside melts and the machine fills. Just a friendly FYI in case you didn't know

    Check discharge line temp at compressor you need 130 degrees at the end of the freeze cycle for proper harvest, might not get it with that compressor, but that's what you look for on a normal one. Did you replace txv to a R134a txv? You did good on this.

      +Joe Shearer 145-160 your in good shape. Nice job Joe

    • Joe Shearer

      Actually discharge is between 145 and 160 depending on the temp outside but it plummets as soon as it enters harvest. Luckily it has just enough heat to release the ice. No I didn't change the txv it's a cap tube system. Thanks for the comment I was hoping you would.

      Thanks man I just meant I didn't have any way to delay that open signal by just a few seconds longer since it is DC volt and everything I have is for 24vac. What would you recommend?
