AM-50BAE won't stop making ice

I just purchase a new Hoshizaki AM-50BAE and installed the optional drain pump kit. It makes ice just fine, but does not seem to stop. The ice bin is full, but it keeps making ice.

There should be a copper bulb located in the ice bin. This is the probe for the thermostat. If you follow the copper line connected to this bulb it will bring you to the thermostat, and you may can adjust it. Please let me know if you need any more help.

I have a Hoshizaki AM-50BAE and it suddenly stopped making ice and all the ice melted away. Can it be fixed? What might be wrong?


the wiring diagram shows that if the bin thermostat goes bad, it will not send power to the control board and noting will run. look for that first, could be a simple fix.

I worked on a hoshizaki km-500mae when i turn it on the first cycle it makes good ice but after the first cycle it makes little pieces. why?


time the cycle. if it is only running about 5 minutes and going into harvest, look for sump loosing water. Look at where the unit drains (like a floor drain) while the unit is running to see how much, if any water is draining. does not take much to make an early harvest. also, sump may not be filling up completely but with just enough water to satisfy the float.

Its a 450 mah hoshizaki, it keeps jumping from freeze cycle to harvest cycle without giving it enough time to make a load of ice


usually, if it does not stay in the freeze cycle long enough to make ice or it just makes slivers of ice, it is loosing water. during the freeze cycle, look to see if water is draining down the drain from the machine. If not, I would look at the float position. it should be almost completely in the lower, down position. give that a shot.

Hoshizaki am-50bae pump won't stop


Sounds like the water pump relay on the man circuit board is stuck in the closed position, try tapping the relays on the board with the handle of a screwdriver, sometimes this will jar the relay and cause it to unstick and work fine. Hope this helps. p.s. the relays look like black boxes on the board and there will be several of them. just tap them all.

Won't make ice


The bin should fill up and the machine shut off in 24-36 hours from time it is turned on. If not the condenser coil may be dirty.
1.Clean the coil this should be done every year.
The bin brain may be partially restricted causing ice to melt faster.
1. clean out the drain.
The air flow to the condenser may be obstructed.
check to make sure there is nothing covering up the grill or coil.

My model AM-50bae ice machine has water in the storage bin,what can I do?


check the bottom of the bin for a drain spout. The drain line may be clogged allowing the water to build-up in the bottom.

If the water is coming down from the ice machine itself, you will need to open up the machine and look inside. Check to ensure the cube guides have not come out of place, that the sump is not overflowing with water, and that there are no loose, leaking, disconnected, or busted hoses.

Hoshizaki ice maker am-50bae . Made ice regularily--- filled ice bin half way...next day-- all ice melted away with no more new ice? next day shut off for 3 hours now o new ice.


make a few quick checks. If there are water filters on the system, be sure they are not restricked. Could be clogged. Next, check the bin stat. It usually is mounted in the ice bin. If it breaks or goes bad, it shuts down the machine. Start there and let me know if I can be of any further help.

Won' stop making ice


most likely the bin thermostat is not calibrated correctly or is not making contact with the ice. The unit should shut down within 5 to 10 seconds after ice makes contact and has not entered the freeze cycle.
Start there and if this does not resolve, let me know and we can get into more indepth things.

Hoshizaki ice machine makes ice but won't drain. Makes ice but won't drain properly, after about 3 or 4 days water starts leaking out of the machine onto the floor. Removed all ice and water and repeated...


My first question is, does the drain have a vent in it? If not, you may need to install one to be able to break the vacuum experienced when the unit flushes after a drop of ice. The vent will be a tee off the drain and a stand pipe that goes up about 5-10" vertical. My next question is has the drain in the plumbing (not the ice machine) been flushed, snaked or tested to see if it can handle the amount of water the ice maching dumps?
