Only if the switch is jumped. The machine would run constantly and will freeze up if not turned off before filling up,.

The bin control shuts it off when the ice bin is full. Without a bin control it should keep making ice and never stop.

THe ice /water dispensor is throwing out ice and water independent of contact from a glass hitting the dispense level, to have it dispence. As a result we have turned of the water and ice control but now...


This is a general answer. The water dispenser paddle makes a switch that then opens a water solenoid valve that dispenses the water. The ice paddle makes a switch that starts an auger in the ice bin to push the ice out. There is either a rod across the bin to detect the height of the ice in the bin or a thermostat that hangs a little way down in the bin. These will open a water valve to fill the evaporator to make more ice if they think the bin is low. Mineral buildup in the water valves is fairly common and can keep them from completely closing. I don't know which light your referring to, but the low ice light should go off when the bin hills. Also, small inline water filters are available in most hardware store to filter water for refrigerator use. I hope this helps.

Hoshizaki km-900mah ice maker won't start the freeze process


cycle is, fill cycle for 1 minute first. If there is not water entering the unit when first turned on, look for that issue. Water turned off, water valve not working or some restriction, clogged water filters, etc. That is got to happen first. Don't over look the bin stat being bad. Nothing happens if teh bin stat is bad. It sends voltage to the control board that runs the unit.

No power. checked fuse box. Tried reset. no luck.


If you are sure you have power to the wiring of the machine, check the bin control. If it's frozen in the open position (electrically) or the capillary tube that connects it to the sensing bulb that sets inside the storage bin is cracked, it will keep the machine off.

We have a commerical manitiwoc ice machine that after the bin fills up it cuts off and has to be reset. After resetting it fills up again and a blinking light comes on telling me that something is wrong....


Manitowac uses a plastic deflector which has a magnet located on the bottom. When the machine drops the ice the deflector opens breaking the circuit to the bin switch. This would indicate "Bin Full" condition. As the ice is used the deflector closes and the magnet comes in touch with the bin switch.
Most likely the bin switch needs replacement.

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.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT MAKE ICE


Check for power supplied to unit.

Check that the bin stat has not been broken and has no ice sitting on it. If the bin stat is clean and doesn't appear to be broken, you can attempt to jump out the bin stat and see if the machine comes on.

If the machine comes on, replace the bin stat. If the machine does not come on and you have shut the machine off and back on, then you will need to call for service.

The check valve is a common issue with the Hoshi line-up. If you know where this is, take it apart, clean it, and re-install it.

My ice machine does not make enough ice


Check the water filters first. Then check the condenser coils for dust and dirt. Determine which way the air goes thru the condenser coils and check on the side the air goes into. There are coil cleaning sprays that work good. If it is still slow, it may need gas. That will require a service call from a technician.
