My ice machine #2217402 has stopped working. The "clean"

Customer Question

My ice machine #2217402 has stopped working. The "clean" light is on continuously. Have run it through a cleaning cycle. When push "on", it starts normally and begins to make ice. The "clean" light comes on when the cubes are almost finished cutting. Any suggestions?

The clean light turns on if it thinks the ice slab is sticking or in other words one of the thermistor sensors isn't working properly. There is a sensor mounted to the bottom of the chill plate that determines this. Make sure when you run the icemaker through a clean cycle you use the nickel save icemaker cleaner or it doesn't clean anything by just running a clean cycle with no solution. Other than that, replace the thermistor sensor below the chill plate.
