SOURCE: water comes into the machine

Hi

Please check the water inlet valve, it might be frozen or blocked with mineral deposit. Use a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Make sure the water inlet valve's screen is not blocked. If the issue persists, then the water inlet valve has gone bad, use a multimeter to test the water inlet valve's continuity. Use a multimeter to test the continuity. If that is fine then test the auger motor and replace if bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Why would a hoshikia 450 mab jump from freeze cycle to harvest cycle without giving iot enough time to makle aload. would it be the cube sizer adjustment or a bad borard?


clean and dry the sensor and restart the machine. Adjust the thickness until the cubes make a plate but break apart when they fall in the storage bin

Hoshizaki M# DCM-270BAH-OS runs for days then freezes up evap coil and stops water inlet to evap.


There is a thermostat probe sat on the front of the evaporator to tell the control board when to harvest. Check it is tight in it's holder. Check the condenser is absolutely clean and filters clear. You can adjust the thickness of the cube. set it on the thinnest setting and see if it harvests before freezing solid.

Machine runs for 10 minutes than switchs to harvest before cubes are formed


Usually a condition of low water in the tank. Other condition is the float switch is set wrong. Could have clogged water filters causing low water condition.

2 beeps every hr.already cleaned, checked freon,dropes ice after resetting it


2 beeps every 3 seconds indicate that the unit has been in the harvest/defrost mode for 20m minutes. If you are absolutely sure that the freon level is correct, check for a water problem. I have seen many a problem corrected by ensuring that the incomming water flow was correct. If you have water filters, change them. In many cases, at the very end of the harvest cycle, the unit goes into the freeze cycle but it brings in ground temp water which actually "rinses" off any laging cubes. I've done this many time with great success. But the freon level has to be exactly correct before doing anything else. Especially in cold weather, it is major important.
Hope this helps.

Ice Cubes won't drop out


The thickness probe should be approximatly 1/4 inch off of the evaporator.Sounds like you might have loose grids on the evaporator.turn the unit off and remove the curtain.use a flash light and inspect the grids.There should not be space in between the joints,if there is the ice will freeze behind the grids and not properly release when in harvest. Also gently pull at the grids,if they pull towards you or wiggle then they are separating. I have removed one of the grids and had the unit continue to run for sometime until the evaporator could be replaced.The plating being spotty causes release issues as well.Finally check the level of the machine,front to back and side to side.Not being level will also cause release problems

Ice Cubes won't drop


Something is holding your Ice Slab at the bottom from your description.
Some causes are
1 Dirty - scaled up evap, or just dirty w muddy covering,
2 the vacuum breaking holes are stopped up If it is making a sla whith the evaporator warm no ice take a flashlight and hold it where its shining to the back of the evap and look for the light on th cube forming slots next to the ones your shining the light into Upper corners of each hole must be open.
3 The slab is freezing uneve most like cause is a stopped up distributor tube at the top thats feeding the water down the evaporator.
4 On some models thay had a closer fitting water curtian (the cover in front of the slab) and the top of the sheet touched this and caused the slab to stay uprite and continue the "slide" forward.If your curtian is of the older style and has metal hooks on it with verticle slots n the curtian look at the slots and see if the slots are worn making the whole curtian slide down ward I have seen this several times.4B On some older models there is also a plactic coated wire diverter on the bottom infront of the evaporator. If the palstic coating is gone or the bottom or is not even, the slab could hang up there. 4C If you have the newer plastic pins make sure thay are seated in the mounting properly.
5 Nickel plating could be comming off (any copper color on the lower 1/3 of the evaporator?).
6 I have seen some of the horizontal plates them selves be loose and not in flush try pushing and pulling on them especially the ones at the bottom. ANy that are loose and comming out is your problem.
This lengthy extrapolation is by no means all of the possibilities but most of the common ones. If this helps you solve your proble please rate me accordingly. If it leads you to the correct and completed repair WOULDNT WE MAKE A TEAM?? And Good luck to you.

Slow icecube maker


the harvest mode is started when the ice cube reaches around 14 degrees so lower the temp in the freezer or decrease the size of the cubes also make sure the fan vents in the freezer is unblocked. check the temp in the freezer should be around 0 degrees.
