The ice machine is dripping water into the bin. The machine has now gone into safe mode.
I have Manitowoc indigo iyo525w. My ice machine is dripping water into my bin. I looked in the ice machine and saw the curtain was lifted out due to the ice building up on the bottom of the tray. So the water was dripping over into the bin. The error code on the display says “long harvest”. Any help is appreciated.

Interesting. They are a good machine, but still require proper cleaning to stay that way. The vast majority of problems come from lack of cleaning with ice machines. Obtain Manitowoc ice machine cleaner ( 94-0546-3) and run a full cleaning before going farther into the problem. This is a manual to help with the cleaning it you lost yours:
this is the clener: https://www.partstown.com/manitowoc-ice/man000005162
This is a partial of the long harvest check list.
Once clean and running, make sure you have a full sheet of ice with a 3/16 inch bridge. Less than that will cause harvest problems.
For me to give you further help, I’ll need the firmware version of the machine. 5.09 and below used a 3.5 min harvest but had to accumulate 300 faults to lock it out. 5.010 and up have a 7 min harvest limit but will lock out with only 3 overs.
