Question about Franklin Industries Franklin Chef Ice Cube Machine FIM400
When machine goes into harvest the water continues to run and forms large blocks of ice over the cuber. I have replaced the float. I have also adjusted down the size of cubes to smallest.
I don't know a lot about this machine but it could be that the water inlet value is not working correctly

I drained the water from the plug on mine and it started to work. The black plastic crew plug about 2 inches from the bottom of the unit, there is a rubber stopper you have to pull out.

YES, THERE IS EITHER A FLAPPER THAT HAS A SCREW IN IT THAT RESTS AGAINST THE EVAPORATOR OR THERE IS A ROD THAT HAS AN ADJUSTMENT. lOOK UNDER THE FLAP FOR ONE OR THE OTHER.

The problem could be a series of things beginning with ambient temperatures
too high, fan not working properly, if water cooled there could be a problem
with that also. As a technician I would first look over the condenser and make
sure air flow is proper and then attach my gauges to see the suction and
discharge pressures. I have found many restaurants that keep their ice machines
in the hot kitchen where it creates high ambient temperatures and allows grease
from the grill to collect on the condenser blocking air flow. Yes under charged
is possible or over charged but the best and most effective route is to call a Scotsman
Certified Technician. I have worked on Scotsman's and they are very tricky to
fix unless you know the process of event. If water is not pre-filtered there is
a chance that the water control valve may be stuck open allowing warm water to continue
flowing causing these symptoms. Here Is a=> Scotsman
