SOURCE: Hoshizaki Ice Machine Model KM-500MAF

(Quated From Hoshizaki Technical Bulletin)
An alarm code of 3 beeps
every 3 seconds means that the control board has shut
down on the 60 minute freeze cycle back up timer.

The “E” control board has a 60 minute timer that starts at
the beginning of the freeze cycle. If the float switch fails
to open and start the next harvest within 60 minutes, the
board will automatically start the harvest cycle. If this
occurs in two consecutive cycles, the control board will
shut the unit down on the manual reset, freeze cycle
back- up timer. The yellow fault LED marked “60 min.”
will illuminate. This safety is designed to help prevent a
freeze up of the evaporator.

Once you have identified the 60 minute alarm, there are
several things to check. Reset the alarm by depressing
the white reset button to the right of the fault LED’s.
This must be done with the power “ON”. Now check the
float switch to see if it is stuck in the up position. A stuck
float can occur if scale is present on the reed switch
shaft inside the housing. To check it, drain the water
reservoir, unplug the black float switch connector (K5)
from the control board and check it with an ohm meter
for a closed switch (zero ohms). If the float switch is
sticking, clean it with ice machine cleaner or replace it as
necessary.
An inlet water valve which is slowly leaking by during the
freeze cycle can cause a 60 minute alarm. If the inlet
water valve is stuck wide open, it is unlikely that any ice
will form on the evaporator. Check for a slow leak by
allowing the unit to cycle into the freeze cycle and
disconnecting the hose at the outlet of the water valve. If
water leaks by during the freeze cycle, the water valve
diaphragm is likely damaged or the small diaphragm bleed
port is clogged with scale. Clean the bleed port or replace
the diaphragm or entire water valve as necessary.

(I Recommend to get a refrigeration tech for this part).

Another possibility is a refrigeration system problem. You
should use normal refrigeration diagnosis procedures to
check for one of these problems. If the thermostatic
expansion valve is not feeding properly or the refrigerant
charge is low, the evaporator will not form ice as it should
and a long freeze cycle will occur. This could also be the
result of the hot gas valve not closing completely during
the freeze cycle or if the compressor valves are weak or
inefficient. An inefficient compressor however, will
usually show up first on the KM model through a longer
than normal harvest cycle. This is because of cooler
than normal discharge gas. Use proper refrigeration
practices to repair a refrigeration system problem.
While these are not the only reasons for a 60 minute
freeze cycle, they are the most common and should be
checked to resolve a 3 beep/yellow fault LED alarm.

SOURCE: Ice Maker water keeps running

Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

Water keeps running and the ice maker isn't making ice


The ice maker will not make ice with the water running in contently this keeps the water temp to high. Turn machine off, cut water supply off to machine, remove water inlet valve, ether take valve apart and rebuild it or replace the water inlet valve. Reassemble in reverse order and machine should make ice.

Staying in the freeze cycle too long. Usually about an hour. Several things can cause this. Look for water running even if machine is off. Possible stuck float switch. And more.

Ice maker not making ice. When pressing the test button will start to make some and then beep about 3 times, then does not produce anymore ice.


Do not use test button. It test the functions of the board only. You have another issue. Need to know the number of beeps. Usually beeps a certain number of times, then hesitates,then beeps again.

I lost the instructions for the Baskin Robins ice cream maker. Are there some available online?


General Ice Cream Maker Instructions... This should give you the general idea on how to use any ice cream maker. Typically, the ice cream straight out of the maker will be soft so the ice cream typically goes into the freezer to "set"/harden the ice cream.

The ice cream maker should have a container inside of the larger outer container. The ice cream mixture goes into the inner container and the outer container holds the ice-salt mixture.
1. Prepare your ice cream mixture and chill.
2. Pour the chilled mixture into the inner container about 3/4 fulls.
3. Insert the Mixing paddle and cover the inner container
4. Turn on motor and while it's running, add 2 inches of ice on the bottom of the bucket. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup salt over ice. Continue layering ice and salt until the ice level reaches the top of the rotating ice cream can.
5. As the ice cream maker runs, add more ice and salt to ensure the ice level is above the mixture level in the inner container.
6. In about 20 to 40 minutes, the ice cream maker should stop churning.
7. Remove the lid and pack down ice cream in the can.
8. Cover and place ice cream can in freezer for several hours to harden. http://www.epinions.com/review/Baskin_Robbins_Ice_Cream_Maker/content_25404149380 The instructions are on the "mix" packs, all you need is the half & half, rock salt and a freezer. Freeze the canister, insert the canister into the receiver, add the mix and the half & half (on the pack), cap it add the ice around the canister, add the salt over the ice, turn on the machine and stand back.

Beeps 3 times when turned on


3 beeps means the machine has ran two 1 hour cycles back to back to make ice an average timeframe for ice making is 25-30 min. Could be several issues, float switch dirty, water valve leaking by, dirty spray tubes, dirty evap., then go to refrigeration Expansion valve, compressor, charge, Hot gas valve leaking by,,,,,

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.
