Re: ICE WITHOUT PLUMBING
It really doesnt matter how full you fill the bucket. round cubes will probably dispense just fine if you have access to that shape ice.
One additional thing, be sure to turn the icemaker off to prevent the fill valve from going bad and to keep it from making a loud buzz about every 10 minutes. thx peyton

open the lid and remove the plastic ice basket. Look on the walls under the ice basket and you should see a "fill line".. Water should be poured into that area (below where the basket goes) no higher than the max fill line.
a full defrost will take,depending on room temperature,about 12 hours,DO NOT USE HOT WATER/SHARP OBLECTS.
you can use car deicer but it will leave a residue/smell that you can remove by wiping out with clorine bleach.make sure any drain holes are syringed out with clorine and wipe out any drip tray to stop smells.by drain away he probably means"dries naturally"
do make sure all food is wrapped/covered (clingfilm) to cut down on frost/condensation inside the unit.after a full defrost fill with your usual foodstuff and fill any space left with newspaper filled poly bags.(less airspace=more efficient)
Hello there: There's no iceIf your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
Take a 6 inch piece of 14 gauge insulated wire and strip one inch of insulation off both ends of the wire. Bend the wire into a U shape. Remove the plastic cover from the front of the ice maker.Locate the holes marked L and V. Insert the 2 stripped ends of wire into the L and V slots. If you get water,the ice maker is bad. If you do not get water,the water valve is bad.
Yes, here are some helps: 1. Buy a load of dry ice and pack as much as you can in the available spaces of the freezer. The less free air space the better. 2. When traveling, if at all possible when stopping for the night, use an extension cord to plug the freezer in. 3. You may need to repack the dry ice once, but you'll be in pretty good shape if you fill it tight.
You may want to seal the door shut with tape. Avoid duct tape...too much residue .. try gaffers tape, it can stay on for a few weeks without leaving all the duct tape goop...
You need to use good freezer bags and not just plastic bags in the freezer. And use these products witin six months.. When you put food into a plastic container for the freezer. you need to burp the container. That means to hold it with two hands and with one hand raise the corner of the lit a tiny bit while with the other hand you press down on the center of the lid and close the corner quickly so as to have burped out most of the air in the container. a little like a vacuum packed container. So less air is in the container to cause condensation inside which is the frost you are getting

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.
PULL THE FRONT COVER OFF OF THE ICE MAKER AND CHECK THE PLASTIC GEAR ON THE FRONT OF THE CONTROL. THE CENTER OF THE GEAR HAS TWO PLASTIC TABS THAT HOLD THE GEAR IN PLACE. IF ONE OF THE TABS IS BROKEN OR MISSING, THE CONTROL OR THE WHOLE ICE MAKER NEED TO BE REPLACED.
CHECK THE ICEMAKER TO SEE IF THERE IS WATER OR ICE IN THE MOULD. IF NO WATER OR ICE, THE FILL TUBE IN THE BACK WALL MAY BE FROZEN OFF. REMOVE THE FILL TUBE AND CLEAR IT OF ANY OBSTRUCTION. YOU CAN ALSO USE A HAIR DRYER TO MELT OUT ANY ICE FROM THE FILL TUBE. THE OTHER POSSIBLITY IS A BAD WATER VALVE. THE WATER VALVE HAS TWO OUTPUTS, ONE FOR THE DISPENSER AND ANOTHER FOR THE ICE MAKER.
