why does water keep filling the ice tray it dosnt stop on a maxx ice m1m75
I found the manual for the Maxx Ice MiM-75 (not the number one, the letter "i") here: http://download.partstown.com/is-bin/intershop.static/WFS/Reedy-PartsTown-Site/-/en_US/manuals/MXIC-MIM75_spm.pdf
So, water is filling the evaporator (the ice mold/tray), but, is ice being formed? Or is water just running constantly through without freezing?
IF its got an inlet water solenoid valve its possible its sticking open, I have seen it a couple of times on Scotsman units. Could also be the device detecting water level is broken, wire cut in half or just scaled over or dirty preventing it from reading the water. I don't know for sure which type of system it is as I am not familiar with the unit but that's what comes to mind.
Olivero is correct on the solenoid valve. On this unit the solenoid and the hot gas bypass are paralleled and are on together. (el cheapo) It isn't possible for it to make ice due to the heat loss down the drain from the water. Clean or if you are not familiar with the valve replace it It is a needle solenoid valve and more than likely got a piece of scale into the valve seat. Replacement is the better chioce as the seat may be damaged.
I hate those cheap solenoid valves, my dishwasher has some really nice brass body, stainless internal ones that just last forever. They only come in 3/4" and are custom made by Parker but I started using them in my steamer and other units where I can put em in.
Less rebuild kits on the shelf and a lot more life.
The ones on my scotsman are just sad, I never liked plastic body solenoids, they just look and feel cheap but usually they can be saved pretty easily like you mentioned. Its what? 4 screws
Don't forget the cheap filter before the valve. Plastic that crack and leak or get cross threaded and seize. Expensive for what they are.
