Water works fine - No Ice

I have 2 of the large Hoshizaki machines Model DCM-270BAH. One of them stopped making ice 5 days ago and now the other has quit. The water works fine on both. I just had a repair man in that replaced one of the small motors under the front panel of one machine but that hasnt fixed the problem. Any ideas?

Re: Water works fine - No Ice

Does it sound like everything is running, only the machine isnt makinf ice? If so, there is a small triangular housing with a hose connected to the small motor on the left under the front panel. shut off the machine and remove the 3 screws on the triangular housing. inside there is a spring and a round rubber disk. take these items out and clean them. its amazing a tiny amount of debris will cause this to not work. install the reverse as you removed thewm, turn the power on.

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.

I have a Scotsman SCN60 nugget icemaker and when I add cleaning solution to reservoir it just stays there

Hi, Are you using Scotsman ice machine cleaner? and are you using the right amount?
1. Open the door and turn the ice machine control knob to off.
2. Scoop out all the ice, discard it.
3. Pour 4 ounces of Scotsman ice machine cleaner into the ice machine reservoir.
4. Turn the ice machine control to on.
5. Allow the machine to operate for about 2 to 3 hours.
6. Pour hot water into the bin to melt the ice that has formed. That ice will likely be white and frosty looking.
7. Clean the bin liner of mineral scale by mixing some ice machine cleaner and hot water, and using that solution to scrub the scale off the liner.
8. Rinse the liner with hot water.
9. Sanitize the bin liner.
Now a dirty evaporator plate will not stop it from making ice it will cause it to hang up on the plate during harvest cycle if machine is not making ice good then there is something else wrong but when you clean the machine also make sure you clean the condenser coil and fan if this is dirty this will cause it to slow down on production of ice.

Hoshisaki makes ice to slow

not sure what "too slow" is to you. Hoshi machines are designed to make more ice per batch but less batches per day. It is not unusual for a batch to take 25-35 minutes for one batch. The 1600 makes a lot of ice per batch. Look for some obvious things. If air cooled condenser, be sure it is clean. Make sure the water to the machine is not Hot water. It is not unusual to get Hot water feedback in a restaurant environment. Check for a leaking water valve. A sticking float can also cause long freeze cycles. Start with that and let me know if I can be of any further help,.

Hoshizaki KM-1600S too much water supply

If water is standing in the bin the drain is clogged. If water is raining down into the bin, Machine may not be level or the drain on the ice machine maybe partially clogged. If machine freezes up water will rain into bin too. Water fills ice machine while in harvest and continues to fill until ice machine`s suction reaches 49 degrees and the defrost timer times out.(usually 1-3 minutes after suction line reaches 49 degrees)

Model KM-450MAB--Ice Machine Making Beaping Noise

Keeps on beeping? Every 3 to 4 seconds? Try putting the thermostat wires together. An open bin thermostat will cause this problem and the board see it and starts beeping.
