    Manitowoc Series G Ice Maker Problem

    Hello. I have a Manitowoc Series G (Model #: GY0404A) icemaker that is about 14 years old. It has worked fine until a couple of days ago when it stopped making ice. It appears that all the cycles of the ice making operation is working fine with the exception of the water freezing. The water tray drips water and it takes such a long time to make ice. Over the weekend, the machine managed to make only about 5-6 cycles of ice cubes. I would like to know what is the best way to remedy the problem. Any assistance is well appreciated. Thank you.

    sounds like you need a detailed cleaning by some one who knows what they are doing then if the problem is still present after cleaning they could fix it.

    First of all, if I were a professional who knew more about the subject at hand, I would not even have bothered asking a question on this board. However, I'm just a do-it-yourself person who asked a seemingly simple question because I do not know as much as you so called pro's. Isn't that what a forum is for? Thanks for your reply but keep the useless replies to yourself.

    The best way to remedy the problem is to call someone who knows how to fix it slick!

    I can not run your establishment be it a store, hotel eatery, that is not what I do. I fix ice makers, I train others to fix ice makers, I do it by academics and hands on training, I can not teach it on an internet forum no more than you can teach me to run your business on one.

    Don't like the response, consider a personal invite to screw your own equipment up royal so I am able to charge you not only for the repair of the original problem but the unqualified attempts as well, tis how I make a MINT in this business. I LOVE a DIY project, especially ice makers.

    Fact is, by the time you are done, best advice for you is to buy a new one cause fooling about will cost nearly as much, just as if I were to enter into your profession with no clue, you would eat me alive.

    Run forest.

    No idea where you are from but my most sound professional advice is to buy a new one, 14 years is a good run for a G series, even if you call a pro repairs ,cleanings with occur more often after 14 years of use
