    Confused Ice Maker evaporator

    I have a small Manitowoc ice maker that occasionally will not drop ice.
    The problem seems to be a miss aligned evaporator horizontal section.
    It sticks out about 1/16 in. from the vertical section. I can push it back in place and it will work for a few days. Can this be glued or can it be fixed

    Kind of new to ice makers
    Thanks
    Charlie

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Time for a new evaporator, although you might get a little more life out of it by grabbing the loose slat with a pliers and pulling it out

    Yupppppp. Needs a new evap. Pretty easy change on a manitowoc. How old is the machine? I believe the serial number on those machines contains the date of manufacture.

    up until about '06, is when I believe they switched their serial numbers. Some of the S series have the date added to the data plate though

    What Danbb said. The evaps have a 5 year part and labor warranty on them.
