Customer Question
I have a Scotsman AFE...
I have a Scotsman AFE 325 ice machine. The motor that drives the ice making part itself has stopped working. i have taken the motor apart and replaced a bearing and checked the motor windings for continuity. How can I check this motor ? could it be a relay or something else. Everything else runs well the compressor and fan run and it gets cold. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Is the machine powered by single phase or 3 phase electricity?

It is a single phase 4.0 amp 1/10 HP I looked at the armature and all looked well no corosion or anything . it has a micro switch mounted on the top of the motor with a flyweight but I think this controls when the fan motor or compressor because i can make both of those run when i depress the micro switch. I hope this helps. Thanks.

I'm sorry to say that I can't find a schematic or wiring diagram for your machine on the internet. I recommend that you call the company customer service department at(NNN) NNN-NNNN or go the www.scotsman-ice.com to use their email menu.
