Ice Maker Harvest Probe on Scotsman.
I had a bit of an odd one yesterday on a smaller Scotsman ice machine, the unit was triggering error code 8 which is Thin Ice.
Looking at it, I noticed even when the unit was not doing anything, it was showing “Ready To Harvest” so I start messing with the probe and for some reason, even though none of the metal was touching the evaporator, it was triggering the harvest.
I put a new one in and the problem went away.
So what on earth could cause that? It was as soon as the offset screw for adjusting the thickness was touching the plastic it sits on, then it would read, or if I touched the metal part with my body parts only touching plastic parts.
It was a bit confusing and I’m curious as to what happened.
