I've got a scottsman ice machince that will cycle properly, but will not form ice in the evaporator. I was wondering what temp the unit should be at to make ice? I don't work on many of these, but it seems to me that there is an issue with the cube size control. I say this because the water cools down to about 37-38f.

Pull one of the hoses off the circ pump and let the water drain out of the reservoir...then turn it back on to a freeze cycle...
The evap cups should frost completely in about 5 minutes. If not, sealed system problem.
Problems with the cube size control usually result in short cycling...the unit will not pause for the "freeze" cycle...timer continuously runs.
Also see that the water valve is not leaking thru...constant inflow of tap water will not allow unit to freeze in a timely manner.
Average freeze time per cycle 22-25 minutes...

Clean the condenser.
Check the condenser fan.
Feel the hot gas valve line for leaking by.
Clean the spray nozzles.
