Well I have it making ice but I do not think that the long metal thermostat line is really touching real good on the plate. Someone put the bracket in the front of the evaporator and I think it should be mounted differently. I have some of the tube on the evaporator but nothing is really holding it there. It is making ice real slow and a lot of it is melting before it gets through the cutting grid. Tomorrow I plan on trying to attach the thermostat tube better to the bottom of the evaporator. Any suggestions how to connect it to the bottom of the evaporator would be helpful. Should the tube be across the botton of the evaporator or bundled in one bunch? Thank you for your input.
