My hoshizaki ice machine KM-900mrf model beeps 3 times and stop making ice. After reset it starts, but stats beeping again after an hour.

Have a look at the side of the evaporator; there is a probe (thermistor) attached to it that tells the control board when to initiate the harvest cycle. make sure it's clean and attached properly and doesn't need replacing. If hitting the float switch initiates the harvest cycle it sounds like you have a blocked/ scaled water tube or switch housing. take off the bottom of the switch assembly (black rubber bit) and clean through to the water chamber. run a cycle of descaler before trying again.

Not making ice

check for a stuck float switch. located near the water pump. Usually white plastic with a tube on top and a black boot at the bottom. Tap on it lightly while unit is filling with water. If that works, you need to disasseble and clean.

My ice machine model f-450 mah makes ice but once it's full the water keeps running and runs out of the machine how do I fix this?

Make sure the plug in the water tray is secure and not allowing water to drip out. Check to make sure the float turns off the flow water once up to level.

Too much water coming out of the pan (in the front of the ice maker) and copper pipes on top left side are covered with ice.

Not real sure just what you are saying as to what pan? The copper pipes that go to the evap plates where the ice is made are supposed to frost over. They get colder than dew point of the air so this is normal. But all the pipes should frost. Does the unit shut down and give any type of beeping noises? This would be the control giving you a trouble code. You may have a water valve leaking. Turn unit off and see if water continues to run. All water should stop within a few seconds. Let me know what you find. Please verify model and serial numbers.

Water runs constantly

Update on the above! The water does shut off, but when the water is running it runs and splashes for awhile down all over the ice thats in there. Water bill is very high when it is in use.
