Water leaking onto ice and outside panel on Hoshizaki KM-500MAE

I've found that water is leaking from my KM-500MAE. Part of this water is dripping onto the ice cubes that are dropped into the collection area inside the machine which is making them melt. It is also dripping onto the cover that flips open ot access where the ice is dropped. The machine was full of ice this morning and it has all melted since the water was dripping onto the ice.

Here is a picture of where some water has leaked out. This is right above the cover that opens up to access the ice.

Remove the cover where the persons finger is and check to make sure that it is not covered with ice. Sounds like your machine iced oup and you will need to clean the coils and possibly replace the thermostat

I worked on a hoshizaki km-500mae when i turn it on the first cycle it makes good ice but after the first cycle it makes little pieces. why?


time the cycle. if it is only running about 5 minutes and going into harvest, look for sump loosing water. Look at where the unit drains (like a floor drain) while the unit is running to see how much, if any water is draining. does not take much to make an early harvest. also, sump may not be filling up completely but with just enough water to satisfy the float.

I have a Hoshizaki model Km-250baf it beeps three times.


3 beeps means it has been in the freeze cycle too long. A stuck float switch can cause this as well as a leaking water valve. Look for that first. Let me know if you need more info.

Hoshizaki KM-500MAH not making ice


Look at water solenoid valve when the unit is running in ice mode. Check to see if the water is shuting off completely. If the water valve does not close properly it will keep adding a little bit warm water to the ice a slow down the ice production.
