need to clear scratch memory cache

I have looked at several posts here and on other sites but have not found a solution to the problem I am having with this python script. In this script I use 2 nested 'for' loops to extract a series of variables by month (month = 0 - 11) from 5 netcdf files and then mosaic together each extracted variable. The script runs but after processing about 3 variables, I get the following error statement:

ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Error executing function. Failed to copy raster dataset Failed to execute (MosaicToNewRaster).

My suspicion is that the cache memory has been exceeded. I tried using arcpy.Delete_management(SCRATCH) but then received the error that the scratch space no longer existed after only one variable was processed. Maybe I am putting that statement in the wrong place? Any other suggestions?
