Hi, There is a drain plugged. Look on the back of the freezer. If you can not see a drain hose, look underneath. Blow through the drain hose and clear it. If you can remove a panel near the fan motors and get to the drain there, you can clear/flush the drain out too.
I hope this helps you.

Look for a stuck float switch. unit fills with water for 1 minute, then the board "looks" at the float to "see" if there is enough water in the unit to run. If float switch is stuck down, it tells the unit there is not enough water and the unit stays in the fill cycle causing the sump to overflow and send water down the drain constantly. Compressor will not run till the board senses that there is enough water to run.

Beeping 3 times every few seconds


In the freeze cycle too long. Usually about an hour. Several conditions can cause this. look for stuck float or constant water running even when machine is off. start there first.

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.

I turned the power on my freezer as now we decided to use it , before it was working fine it became very hot inside and the fan on the top didnot start?


Too many things can go wrong, but try this first, The fan on the top must be turning got the unit to work. Sometimes when a unit sits up for a while the fan bearings freeze up. Try trurning the fan with your hand of a screwdriver if it has a shroud around the fan. It may start moving and ususally when it does it will be arright after that. The inside will be hot because it will go into a defrost cycle 3 or 4 times a day and that puts a lot of heat inside the unit. Also the door frames are heated. Check to see if the compressor is running. If it is the small copper line going over tt the fan will be very hot. If not its not running. Co to start with clean the radiator coils on the outside and make sure the fan by the compressor is running.

Why is the ice maker dripping allot of water inside and not producing ice even though the compressor is running?


Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

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.

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.
