I just bought a qd0202a ice maker and it makes ice and don't want to drop it
Does it make the ice but just does not drop it?
I take it you bought a used one.
1st thing you should do is clean it using the chemicals and procedures outlined inside the door that covers the ice making section. There may be an almost indiscernible coating of lime scale that's causing the ice to hang up. Make sure you use only Manitowoc ice machine cleaner and sanitizer. Follow the cleaning procedures to the letter.
If a cleaning doesn't correct the problem, there may be a major and expensive problem with the machine:
Look at your evaporator plate (as pictured above):
If the evaporator plate is okay, then ANOTHER possibility is a faulty harvest valve. It's located in back and is part of the refrigeration system. If it's not opening properly (or at all), then the evaporator plate won't heat up to harvest the ice.
These are some of the usual possible problems that cause ice not to drop. I highly recommend that you contact an impartial service company (NOT the dealer you bought it from) to take an objective look at it. Explain your situation to them and show them a copy of this post.
If the machine has major issues (as I'd stated above or otherwise), then I hope that whoever you bought it from offered you some kind of a warranty.
