Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There is most likely scale built up that is not allowing the ice to drop smoothly from the evaporator. When was the last time a quality ice machine cleaner (available below) was ran through a cleaning cycle?

How do you run the cleaner through a cycle?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

See page 21 in the manual below. Do this cleaning at least every 6 months.
