Just like Hoshizaki ice machine production, Manitowoc ice machine production is just as dependent on the surrounding conditions. When water and air temperatures are within optimal ranges, it’s much easier for the ice machine to freeze a batch of ice.
When freeze times take longer, that means less ice within 24 hours. Common ice maker problems also occur in cold temperatures as well!
What Conditions Effect Manitowoc Ice Machine Production?
Manitowoc ice machine production is dependent on temperature conditions. For instance, a Manitowoc IDF-0600A air cooled dice ice machine will only produce its maximum output of 632 lbs of ice in 24 hours if the water is at 50 degrees, and the air temperature is at 70 degrees.
Below are the Manitowoc ice machine production statistics for all our Manitowoc ice maker models. That includes all of our Manitowoc air cooled ice machines, Manitowoc water cooled ice machines, and Manitowoc remote ice machines.
We show three production capacities for each machine: Max, Min, and AHRI. Max production in 24 hours is based water that is 50 degrees and surrounding air at 70 degrees. Min production is determined at 90-degree water and 90-degree air. AHRI production is based on a standard that approximates typical operation conditions most workplaces can maintain, with water at 70 degrees and air at 90 degrees.

Keep Your Manitowoc Ice Machine Production Performing at 100%
It’s important to know how ice machine perform in different temperatures, so you know what to expect if the heat rises. You can help keep your ice machine’s production rate high by getting routine maintenance and cleaning at least twice a year.

Hiw can i find ice production on this models…WCF1101-w RF2300-w QY1005-w SD1803-w QDO453-W
If you still have the spec sheets for these models, you would find the production sizes there.
For quick reference here are the production rates for the models you listed. These are maximum estimates assuming the machines are operating in optimal temperatures of 70*F surrounding air and 50*F incoming water:
Cornelius WCF1101-w = 1426 lbs/day
Manitowoc RF2300-w = 2,608 lbs/day
Manitowoc QY1005-w = 900 lbs/day
Manitowoc SD1803-w = 1880 lbs/day
Manitowoc QDO453-W = 490 lbs/day
Hope this helps!
When adjusting the thickness of the ice bridge, would this effect the production rate or the time frame in which the ice is produce?
In my case I decrease the thickness of the ice from a UDE0080A ice maker.
Adjusting the thickness of the ice bridge does indeed affect production rate. Increasing the thickness will increase freeze time as well as the batch weight, but it’s more than likely to cause operational issues over time. Decreasing the thickness of the bridge will shorten freeze time and decrease the batch weight, but this is also extremely likely to cause operational problems.
We highly recommended that you leave the ice thickness at its factory setting, in which there’s a 1/8th-inch bridge connecting the cubes. I hope this helps!
My model number for my Manitowoc is SY0894N and I don’t see that model number format on the website. I’m trying to find out what it’s max ice production is in LBs
It looks like that info isn’t be accessible on Manitowoc’s website because those units aren’t currently in production. According to the manual, under ideal conditions (70 °F outside air with 50 °F incoming water temperature), your Manitowoc SY0894N has a stated 24-hour production of 860 pounds of ice. A more accurate of estimate of its production capacity (when brand new) would be around 800 pounds, but due to the age of your machine, 700 pounds is likely closer to its current production capacity.
I hope this is helpful!
hi I have a model no QD0283W could you tell me how much ice this model is supposed to make in 24 hours? Can you still get parts for it?
Your Manitowoc QD0283W has a production capacity of 290 lbs. of ice with ideal conditions of 70°F air and 50°F water. As temperatures rise, production capacity drops, so at conditions of 90°F air and 70°F water, the stated capacity is 250 lbs.
It’s worth noting, however, that these models are from the 90s—so the production capacity will be less than the manufacturer has stated due to the age of the machine.
We hope this information is helpful.
