    Hey Bobby,

    So much can be wrong, ice machines are very complicated. I am going to list what could cause the evap to not chill in no particular order.

    Condenser clogged, condenser fan broken, liquid line solenoid failed closed, harvest valve failed open, fan switch failed, low refrigerant charge, failure on main board, etc

    Has anything else changed with the unit? Was it making ice before?

    Good luck and be safe!

    Ok Bobby, First I have to ask if you have a red lit wrench on the keypad. What buttons are lit and what color?

    Remove the kick plate on the bottom of you under-counter machine. and observe the condenser fan. If That is running, touch the bottom tube of the condenser to feel for heat. It should be near room temperature. Now the top tube. It should be hot to the touch. Let us know.
