Title: Whirlpool 50 lb. ice machine
Post by: apptech1 on July 04, 2018, 09:36:11 AM
Originally diagnosed with a sealed system issue, i.e. Leaking evap. Did the repair and never produced. System is tight, no leaks or restrictions. Kinda scratchin my head because I am unable to hook up water to it here at the house right now so I can't properly diagnose. I'm leaning toward the reversing valve. Any thoughts would be helpful. 🤔

The evap is new so I didn't even think about running cleaner. The condensor was filthy though. I'll give that a try this afternoon. Thanks.

Yes sir!! Got busy and forgot to update. I found the evap thermistor was out and a cracked water line @ the valve. Fixed them and she went to producing like new. Thanks for all the input.
