What's the model number of the machine?
The Q1300 has a Copeland CS20K6E, but if you need to get a replacement compressor, you should always use the ones from Manitowoc.
According to Jon Bailey, an HVAC-Talk member and tech service training manager for Manitowoc, the bill of material numbers will be different from those you'd find at the supply house because they have Copeland make a few changes...including beefier valves and bearings as I recall.

Icemeister is right!
I could not have said it better myself. We are not just trying to sell you compressors at a higher price. We are trying to save you a headache. An off the shelf may even work ok for a few months but because ice machines have an 'agressive' harvest cycle the compressors have to be 'beefed' up from the normal spec.The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent The Manitowoc Company's positions, strategies, or opinions.

76-2687-3 60hz single phase 208/230v $1,897.00 LIST price USD
76-2688-3 60hz 3 phase 208/230v $2,065.00 LIST price USD
If your not in the USA the 50hz compressor will have a different Model NumberThe postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent The Manitowoc Company's positions, strategies, or opinions.

I agree with you: use the matching head and condenser pair-up.
But that wasn't my call. Apparently it was all bought and installed as: used; almost new. <g>
Someone installed a 3 HP Trenton condensing unit as the Manitowoc remote condenser and the compressor either failed or maybe the condensing unit was a "rebuild" with a 2 HP compressor stuck in it. <g>
"sometimes it makes ice - but not now" was the customer's summation. <g>
I told them that I would only work on it against an upfront retainer. When that shows up I'll find out more.

That sounds like a total nightmare.

Which is exactly how they found me. Whoever they called first said; WTF; over?
Several people later somebody said: I know a guy . . .
But it's nightmarish to start with, they really need a smaller head or a larger condensing unit, and I'm not dying to do it anyway. I'm mostly trying to free up my schedule so I can run down to Florida and buy a house.

Wait, so is this a CVD unit? or a remote that someone hacked together to try to make a CVD unit? CVD units are hard enough with a matching condensing unit, but some random hacked-together piece of equipment would be something I would not touch. Quote them a new machine and leave it at that would be my course of action
