Hello everyone,

I have a Franklin Chef FIM70 Ice Maker that doesn't make Ice. It will make a first batch, but then it just seems to spit out water. The fan behind the condensor is not spinning, and I figure that is the problem. It is free and will spin by hand. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks! I have run across that information already. There were a couple others I saw that looked identical with different brand names

Which LED lights are on when this machine is in FREEZE and which are on when it dumps ice?
Inside the control box, is this a printed circuit board or a electro-mechanical timer?
