    Just food for thought, I looked up that unit and its a 48" evaporator, so you probably have two harvest and two expansion valves...

    :) Water regulating valve is already bad (and the gasket for the bellows is common place for refrigerant leak, much more so than the condenser.) Dirty, old dump valves are worthy of replacement...

    If they can't afford a new machine, get a used one. You're not going to fix this without spending some money.

    Descale the evaporator (since obviously they aren't going to replace evaporator). ...

    I suspect its a bad board causing harvest valve to stay energized 24/7. Unplug the coil off the harvest solenoid and descale the bin eyes. This is a Scotsman right? Where am I? HEllo?

    With suction line pinched off it should pump into a vacuum pretty quick. As in around 3 to 5 seconds typically, maybe 10 seconds max. Obviously the bigger the compressor the quicker it pumps down,...

    No offense to Scotsman tech support, and they may end up being right, but 55# at end of freeze is around 20 degree SST. You said it is supposed to be 35# which is more like 2 degree SST. When the...

    Wow I initially thought this was a 1500# unit based on model number; didn't realize it's an under counter unit. I agree with Pec, you already have enough evidence to condemn the unit: evaporator...

    How are you so sure the harvest valve isn't leaking? If water isn't leaking into the sump during freeze, then you only really have two possibilities: leaking harvest valve or weak compressor. ...

    I have successively removed danfoss controller, nu-brited coil and washed with water hose, then reinstalled controller. On occasion got controller wet, disassembled it and dried off circuit board...

    It seems strange that you have the pie-cut smooth radius bend coming off that giant turbine looking thing, which then goes to a sharp 90* bend? The animation doesn't look like the real thing!

    Intermittent hot boxes can often be attributed to weak start components too. Obviously in this case it sounds like a moisture issue. Smart of you to sit there and watch it, catching it in the act!

    Just look up the btu rating on your old compressor at design evaporator temp for the case, then find your replacement using the same data. Don't try to use a different btu compressor because it...

    The units in question have built-in dispensers. But in the case of a flaker that sits on a dispenser, flaked ice typically needs the minimum agitation possible. Too much agitation will cause it to...

    You also need to make sure the unit is level so that the bin drains properly, as this can cause the same issue.

    Pinch off the suction line and see if the compressor pumps down ok. Maybe a weak compressor. Or another possibility is the evaporator lines have separated from the wall. In that case you will...

    Yes dirty water sensor will cause the water sensor error. Discharge error, not so sure. I've seen numerous Prodigy cubers have thermistor failures. If it were me, backorder thermistor set...

    Superheat still works the same. Suction pressure may not fluctuate as txv modulates, but suction line temp will. You don't need to isolate. In fact you should check superheat with it by itself and...

    Did you get a chance to set superheat first? With a suction line that warm, doesn't it seem superheat is too high? I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it!

    You are correct. The issue of an undersized receiver can be corrected, either by installing a bigger receiver, or relocating defrost timer to the kitchen, or wiring timer to energize solenoid and...
