    Had an ice machine go out on error code “2” harvest problems, I watched it work for a while and the only thing I noticed was the harvest pin staying out when it should’ve retracted, i pulled on it and it seemed to be going through a lot of resistance, so I oiled it with some food safe oil and it started moving easily again.

    Never had that before, any of you guys had this happen?

    What model number is it? Also is the pin made of plastic?

    I had a similar issue with my Scotsman ice machine which has a plastic float and the stem started to warp for whatever reason and would get stuck. Apparently for my machine this is common as it was included in the troubleshooting section.

    The question is; Is it from metal corrosion or mineral build-up? Unfortunately it’s a bit difficult to remove the pin to check. Also that the pin has to not wick water into the bearing.
