Q:

What are the 3 settings for on the back? HDIM35 Franklin Chef Icemaker

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
 
If each one of the cubicles in the evaporator is freezing ice and it all of the ice is dropping during the harvest mode and the unit is shutting off before the ice bin reaches the normal full area, then it could have a faulty ice full probe.

Adjusting the ice cube size will not cause the icemaker to make more ice. It would only increase or decrease the size of the ice.

I recommend removin the grill located below the door and clean the concensor coil first. If you still have problems, I highly recommend calling for service.
 
Controller box LEDs:
Instructions for LEDs and buttons:
1. Red LED: Ice full indicator light.
When this LED is lit, the ice storage bin is full of ice or there is something between the ice-full sensor in the ice storage bin. The unit will stop making ice. When ice cubes are taken out of the ice storage bin making the ice-full probe free, the red LED will keep flashing for 3 minutes. Then the unit will restart and return to the ice making mode.
2. Green LED: Ice making indicator light.
When this LED is lit, the unit is working in the ice making mode controlled by a temperature probe on the evaporator. When the green LED is flashing, the unit is working in the ice making mode controlled by a fixed timer.
3. Yellow LED: Ice harvest indicator light.
When this LED is lit, the unit is working in the ice harvest mode controlled by ice-full probe .
When green LED and yellow LED is lit, it means the unit is working in the cold preservation stage .
4. Mode button: (Mainly for service.)
When this button is pressed, it can change from ice making mode to ice harvest mode, or from ice harvest mode to ice making mode. You can judge the mode from the status of the green and yellow LEDs.
5. Ice size adjust: Turn the screw clockwise, and the size of individual ice cubes will be larger in the next cycle; the cycle time will be longer. Turn the screw counter clockwise, and the ice size will be smaller in the next cycle.
NOTE: It is not a good idea to adjust the ice size often or for no good reason, because the controller may be damaged.

I highly recommend calling a service technician to properlly diagnose and repair your icemaker.

Thank you for your question. I did find your model. Click here. 
Check the water supply line for leaks or kinks. Start with the obvious and work your way to more elaborate problems. Look for puddles of water under or behind your refrigerator. In addition, straighten any kinks in the water supply line. Also, check the freezer's temperature to see if it is under 14 degrees Fahrenheit.


Examine the Everstar's sensor. Every ice maker has a sensor arm that is raised as it makes ice and dumps it into the ice tray. When the tray is full, the sensor arm raises into a lock position, shutting the ice maker off until enough ice is emptied.

It seems like there are not to many parts for repair. Click here. If it is time to purchase anew icemaker go here www.SearsPartsDirect.com.

If you have anymore questions pleas reply to this post.

Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.

 

 

Try to reset your Everstar ice maker. Turn the unit off and wait at least 30 to 60 seconds before turning it back on. Often, this will reset the unit and it will begin to function properly again.


Replace the water filter. Remove the refrigerator's water filter and see if it is clogged or too dirty to filter water. In some models, the ice maker will not manufacture ice when the filter is clogged or bogged-down because water flow is restricted.


Unwedge the dispenser module. If the dispenser becomes clogged, with a foreign object, ice cannot flow from the tray through the dispenser. This can shut off the ice-making cycle because the unit's sensor arm is not able to move.

I hope this is helpful.

I can understand how important it is to have the right information for your ice maker. However, I was not able to find an installation guide or an owner's manual for this model. I was able to locate the service manual, which may include the installation instructions. This manual, however, is not available for free. In order to download it you will need to purchase it.  If you would like to do so, please click on this link:  Ice Maker Service Manual.  I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
