Also, based on your serial number, I wanted to let you know this unit was manufactured in December 2004, just in case you ever need to know that.
I hope this helps!
Ouch! If you have a hole in the evaporator with a shaver/nugget machine you have a bigger problem. You now have a seriously contaminated refrigeration system as well. Let alone that the scraper system must have made the hole from a bad bearing. As you get into this machine you are going to probably find that you will need a auger, gearbox, (they always have water damage), extruder, bearing, and agitator. That's over $3000 in parts About 500 for the tech.
You got 13 years out of it. Your repair cost will be as high as buying a new machine head if that's the problem.
Let's consider a second option. That the hole is in the ice bin on top of the evaporator instead of the evaporator. Corrosion and pressure from the ice will cause this. The bin and cover can save you a lot as it's only a thousand.
