    a little more info. When turned on, does water enter the machine? The pump should not be running during the "fill" cycle. If water is entering and nothing else is happening, it just keeps filling with water? Look at a stuck float switch. Unit starts with water entering. check their web site. Their tech line is good too. 1-800-233-1940

    Will the machine turn on? If unit is exposed to improper power source, it may "Lock Out" to protect itself. Try calling their tech support line. It's worth the wait. You may just have to turn it off and then back one.

Did you try unplugging the machine?
And look at the fron left do you see a small cylender inside next to where the ice freezes?

When I got home I heard the buzzer going off on the freezer..the temperature had dropped from -12 to -2 and I'm trying to reset it to-12 again how do you do that?


You dont have to reset it, you need to defrost it, the defrost element has failed and you have ice build up within the chiller plates, air cant pass through it due to the ice, I think you will find that food is starting to defrost and you will see a bit of ice on the back panel inside the freezer.
Defrost it for 2 days with door open, after that, should work fine for a week or so, very common problem.
Hope that helps, Russ

My ice maker does not work


Good day,
The freezer must be below 12 degrees before the ice maker will activate. If it's o.k. then follow the steps outlined below. It will solve your problem.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Takes too long to drop ice


Unit is functioning on the back up freeze timer.
Cause:
Float Switch stuck in the up position.=Empty sump, remove float switch (Carefully and watch the small pin that keeps the float inside). Clean and reassemble.
Water Valve leaking by:=Only fix is to replace. Turn unit off. If water continues to run in and overflows the sump, it's leaking.
The other things that can cause this requires a qualified tech as it is a refrigeration problem.

Hope this gets it for you.

Small production of ice? What should be the normal production of ice?


The way I understand how Hoshizaki machines work, the model number is usually what the unit will produce, in pounds of ice. Their manual states: "Approximate production/ 24 hours @ 70 degrees air/ 50 degrees water (incoming)" So, yours should be producing 450 pounds a day, approimately. Since I can not pin point your exact model, I found one that is close. It states: "Ice Production per cycle: 6.6 pounds, 360 pcs." Again, it is not you exact machine. Their web site does not show this model either. So this is the best info I can get for you. Hope this helps.
