    Manitowoc RNS0308A chute microswitch issues

    Im having an issue with the micro switch sticking on the machine mentioned in the subject. The switch seems to get scaled up and sticks, causing ice production to stop. A quick tap on the chute usually fixes the issue. Anyone else having this problem, and any successful fixes? Lube the switch with food grade silicon maybe? Thanks for any help!

    Why mess with it? Just replace the switch.

    Was thinking more along the line of preventative maintenance. Also, I can only seem to get the entire chute assembly (which Ive done) not just the switch that screws into it. Ive even called Manitowoc, and they could only give me the P/N for the assembly.

    Is there an alignment issue or something too tight? Seem to remember that once.
