Scotsman Ice machine.


Hello I have an ice machine Scotsman. Model SCE170A-1B. the compressor was clicking but not turning on. I thought id try a 3n1 sstart capacitor on it. For a 1/3 1/4 horse.I put them on residencial frigs quite often. and i bring to life frigs all the time. i installed it and this compressor emediatley responded beautifully . Sounded great. 40 seconds later it shut down. Can you help me with this.It does have a large capacitor on the unit. I was wondering if i should keep the cap in series. i removed it from circuit. When i installed this 3 n 1 . Any help would be great.

Heres the deal, once a compressor sticks it will with all certainty stick again. So heres the answer tell the customer the compressor has failed and a new compressor needs to be installed along with other parts, ie dryers, schraeders(if needed), freon, and bench tested for a couple loads.

I would try to take it home to the shop or garage to make the repairs it's much easier without the owner bugging you and waiting for the dump cycles.
