The bin has to reach the thermostat bulb before it can shut off. take s cube or two and rub it on the bulb. (the small wire looking thing on the side of the inside is the bulb) If everything shouts off then its working fine just needs to fill up, if not filling up - well that's another story. If you do this with 2 cubes and it doesn't shut off the thermostat is bad. Replace it and your problem is gone.
Hope this helps please rate me even if you read this more than 1st time please rate me accordingly and Good Luck.

4. Restricted location, intake air to hot. Have machine moved.
5. Ice thickness sensor dirty or disconnected. Check ice thickness sensor probe.
6. Water distributor dirty. Remove and clean water distributor.
7. Inlet water valve leaks through during freeze cycle. Check water inlet valve.
8. Connected to hot water. Check for bleed through from missing check valve in building water supply.
9. Incomplete harvest. Check harvest system.
10.High pressure cut out opened. Check fan motor pressure control, check fan motor, check controller using test mode.
11. Fan motor pressure control open. Check fan pressure control.
12. Fan motor not turning. Check fan motor, check fan blade,check controller using test mode.
13.Water pump not pumping. Check pump motor,check controller using test mode.

15. Compressor not operating. check compressor contactor, check controller using test mode.
Check compressor start components, check PTCR resistance and temperature, check compressor voltage, check compressor windings.
16. Low refrigerant charge. Add some refrigerant and restart unit. If cycle time imporves, look for a leak.
17. Hot gas valve leaks through during freeze. Check hot gas valve for hot outlet during freeze.
18. Thermostatic expansion valve bulb loose. Check bulb.
19. Thermostatic expansion valve producing very low or high superheat. Check evaporator superheat, Change TXV if incorrect.

Hey there, I have a Westpoint NOFROST De Luxe Tropical frige, model # WRK 297.1. The freezer section is forming ice and the circulation fan is making alot of noise due to ice being formed behind the back...


I believe your problem is the defroster circuit . There are only three components on most refrigerators unless you have something real special . Kidding . They are as follows : defrost timer , heating element , and defrost cut out switch . The defrost timer cycles the refrigerator out of normal operation and into defrost mode once every six to eight hours depending on the unit . When in this mode everything shuts off , compressor , circulation fan , and condenser fan is so equipped . To eliminate the circulation fan , you'll have to keep an eye on your refrigerator checking in every half hour or so for six hours to eight hours and see if it stops working . If it does , then we know the timer is working correctly and the problem will be the heating element or cutout switch . The heating element is checked with an ohm meter. Usually they burn out when they go bad and you will read infinite resistance. The defrost cutout switch should read 0-1 ohms when the freezer temperature is 40° F or lower. If the heating element checks good , in other words it shows to have resistance usually between 30 and 100 ohms, replace the cutout switch . If the circulation fan never shuts off and the unit continues to run without shutting down after a six or eight hour Time cycle , replace the defrost timer . Good luck

"you are right that cleaning under your refrig wont get rid of a "compressor knocking" sound. what it might do is to lower the amount of heat from the condenser coils and thus cause less pressure and stress on the compressor making it run easier and less likely to bang or knock when shutting off.
if your coils were very plugged with lint and you have cleaned them, that will help but it wont "fix" the problem.
inside the compressor is a motor and a pump, the motor is supported by 3 springs and they can stretch or break causing the motor to hit one side of the black outer can and cause the noise.
that may be too technical, but its not something that can be repaired without replacing the compressor, at a cost of 700-800 bucks. most would not pay this as its not worth putting that amount of money into an older refrig."

"think that you are hearing either a freon related sound or even just the sounds of the unit going thru defrost.
how often do you hear the noise? just maybe once a day or is it everytime the unit shuts off?
either way i would rule out the ice maker and water system as when the "shut off arm" is up then it is off and wont make any noise, or ice.
keep the i/m arm up and then listen for the next day or two and try to narrow down when it makes the noise and frequency you hear it and then get back to me.
it may not even be a problem, just normal operating sounds that cant be changed."

Hello, i have a hoshizaki ice flaker, when i turn on in to ice mode, the compressor run for a few second then it shut off. what could be the problem. thanks


There are several possibilities. The most common is probably low refrigerant. Are you sure the compressor is actually running? If it just humms for 2 or 3 seconds, it may be a burned out compressor. That would be bad news. Take the side panel off and turn the unit on. If the compressor comes on and runs, the small line coming from the compressor to the condensing coils, (the thing that looks like a radiator) should be hot to the touch if it is not you are probably low on refrigerant. There is a safety switch that shuts the compressor off if you are low on freon. The compressor would "short cycle". That is it would come on and off and not every minute or so. That is bad for the compressor and won't make ice either. Also if you don't get a constant flow of water it might do the same thing. There is very little the average person can do to an ice machine as complicated as this one. Check your water flow, check the air flow throught the radiator like coils near the compressor. Other than that you need a refrigeration mechanic to check the freon pressures.

This unit is designed with the intention of the fan running all the time. The compressor cycles on and off with demand, however the fan runs continuously to provide constant room circulation.

Bosch shu5313 pump won't shut off


danimaldds there are 2 pumps in this dw, a drain pump and a circulation pump. If it is the drain pump that is running, look in the base under the machine. Remove the kick plate and see if there is water in the base. If so remove the water and see if the pump shuts down. If not look to the left side under the machine there is a red plastic stick, lift up on it with a wooden or plastic spoon. Do this a couple of times. It is possible the overfil float is stuck. If the circulation pump keeps running, then the control unit is the cause. Hope this helps
