The machine is suppose to start filling, then after 45 seconds or so turn on in the harvest mode then when the temp gets where the sensor says its suppose to be it starts to freeze.

If water keeps coming out the over flow the water valve may be stuck open and this is why you can't make ice its letting in warm water all the time. Try turning the water off to it and see if it freezes a batch. If so replace the water inlet valve or remove and clean it

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.

We have a hoshizaki ice machine 901mwh the ice cubs seems to be getting stuck in the evaporator area and pileing up on it self and freezing bake up


The main problem with Hoshizaki machines is if you are in a hard water area, if so do you have a good quality water filter, it may need changing. A quick way to check for calcium ot lime deposits in the machine is
1. Turn it off, run you clean hand around the area near the evaporator, are there any rough or flaky deposits there, if so you may need a chemical descale, contact a reputable fridge guy to do this for you.
2. The swinging arm motor may be faulty or possibly the ice sensor which controls the harvest cycle. If this is faulty sometimes the tray goes back up before the ice has slid off.
3. If the machine is situated in a cellar or other cool (less than 10 deg C / 50 deg f) this can sometimes affect the harvest cycle again to set this you need a tradesman.
4. Does the water flow properly over the lower part of the mould plate during a harvest cycle, the pipe can become blocked or dislodged.

Hope this is helpful

My ice machine model f-450 mah makes ice but once it's full the water keeps running and runs out of the machine how do I fix this?


Make sure the plug in the water tray is secure and not allowing water to drip out. Check to make sure the float turns off the flow water once up to level.

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?

There should be a reset button on your control board inside the electrical compartment.

Turn the system on to ice mode and depress the reset button. This should clear out any and all faults stored in the board and the machine should at least attempt to come back to life.

Look on the outside of the electrical compartment cover. There should be an explanation of what your error code means. I can't remember it off the top of my head. But the list there will tell you what 1 beep every 305 seconds means and the procedures to take from there.

Hoshizaki ice machine


The machine will continue to run water all the time while in harvest mode. The control board blew, and just needs to be replaced. Controls boards can fry without any other signs of anything else being bad. Hoshizaki ice machines dont have a over heat relay that shuts it down upon oerheating if it is the control board

Ice cube shape


hoshizakis make ice cubes depending on the amount of water in the sump. if you are starving for water the sump only partially fills in the fill time allowed . then it makes ice until the water is used up and the float switch drops and the cubes are little slices. you can adjust the size of cubes you want by raising or lowering the float assembley in the sump. if its to low the water rises and the float rises and tells the machine you happy with little slices. if you raise it up to max height you can max fill before float satisfies and max ice cubes. But if you are starving for water the time to fill will run out before the sump fills and cubes will be small no matter where you set the floats assembly. water starving can be due to crud in the water line, to small a water line, most hoshizes take a half inch line ,or a clogged water filter. if you suspect a filter take it out . if fill is drastically improved you need a new filter. be aware that starving for water on a hoshizaki will eventually lead to broken evap plates. big time expensive.good luck. i put in a new machine ruined by starving water and the new one made little chips of ice real quick. i finally pulled the filter out and voila! big cubes and great production.
