    manitowoc wont go into freeze

    Under counter unit QD0132a won't go into freeze . original complain was low ice production. Adjusted itp . turned it off to check flow valve . turned back on . now won't freeze . only water pump would be on . bin light would cycle on and off manually.. have very limited experience with ice makers . any help would be greatly appreciated..

    Low production is usually related to water issues, dirty machine, high head, or possibly a low charge/txv issue. Were there any error codes when you turned the unit back on? Compressor won't come back on because bin switch is not closed.

    No codes . I looked many many times . but the bin light would cycle on and off when I move the damper . checked all electrical connections already. Will go back to clean the machine + check on bin switch again . thanks 2sac

    They just go bad. No rhyme or reason. Was the magnet on the curtain dirty? That could have been causing it to act up as well.
