Question about Hoshizaki Cubelet Ice MakerDispenser Water Cooled LED Sensor Operation

Km 452 dwu

I picked up this machine recently, it is in very good shape and is very clean. However the compressor has been removed. I do not have experience with the water cooled types. I would like to know if it needs any thing else. Is there a diagram or picture showing the layout. I am especially curious where the water flows to and how to check if ther are any leaks into the freon system.

Re: km 452 dwu

See if it has any pressure in the sealed system. If so its probably ok.

Water cooled machines here in Oklahoma have to have a new water valve about ever 2 to 3 years or water will flow all the time. The plus is you can install it in a hot kitchen or garage and it will continue to make ice. The bad thing is it takes a lot of water.

If your inclined you could set up a cooling tower and spray the water out and collect it back in the sump and push it back in to the condenser with a pump. If your in Arizona this might be a cure for water use. Other wise get ready for a mess if you don't pipe it into the drain on the building. Keeps the misquotes happy though.

It is not making ice. We cleaned it with solution; etc. the light when we press "on" or " clean" does not blink; stays steady. Water comes into the pan in back; we can hear we think, the compressor r

Remove the plug in the right rear that connects the circulation pump, test for 110V voltage at the plug ramaining in the bracket, this machine was made by whirlpool for Scotsman, usually after a clean is done with the solution, it's very common that the circulation pump mecahanically fails. Either the impeller has slid up on the shaft, or the steel plate has rusted and caused an alignment issue with the shaft. You will most likely need a replacement pump, Scotsman part# 02217220.

Ice machine not making ice

You will have a 60-90 fill cycle, then circulate, then another 60-90 fill, then on to ice making. When Ice making starts all remaining functions come on, such as the condenser fan, and compressor. Check for these functions after the initial fill/rinse/fill has finished. if the condenser fan comes on but the compressor does not, you very well may need a control board located behind the on/off switch panel. With constant heavy loads/usage, and or a dirty condenser coil the compressor relay solder joints often become weak and short open on the board, this can sometimes be fixed by just cleaning and re-soldering the relay joint on the board.

Ice machince is going max freeze cycle shut down

1. Possible cause. Water leak. Check purge valve, water curtain, sump, sump hose.
2. Air filters clogged. Clean air filters.
3. Dirty condenser. Clean condenser.
4. Restricted location, intake air to hot. Have machine moved.
5. Ice thickness sensor dirty or disconnected. Check ice thickness sensor probe.
6. Water distributor dirty. Remove and clean water distributor.
7. Inlet water valve leaks through during freeze cycle. Check water inlet valve.
8. Connected to hot water. Check for bleed through from missing check valve in building water supply.
9. Incomplete harvest. Check harvest system.
10.High pressure cut out opened. Check fan motor pressure control, check fan motor, check controller using test mode.
11. Fan motor pressure control open. Check fan pressure control.
12. Fan motor not turning. Check fan motor, check fan blade,check controller using test mode.
13.Water pump not pumping. Check pump motor,check controller using test mode.
14. Pump hose disconnected. Check hose.
15. Compressor not operating. check compressor contactor, check controller using test mode.
Check compressor start components, check PTCR resistance and temperature, check compressor voltage, check compressor windings.
16. Low refrigerant charge. Add some refrigerant and restart unit. If cycle time imporves, look for a leak.
17. Hot gas valve leaks through during freeze. Check hot gas valve for hot outlet during freeze.
18. Thermostatic expansion valve bulb loose. Check bulb.
19. Thermostatic expansion valve producing very low or high superheat. Check evaporator superheat, Change TXV if incorrect.
20. Compressor inefficent. Check compressor amp draw, if low and all else is correcy, change compressor.

I have an old iceu150ha sku # wb3765001 that is not freezing and or making ice cubes, the compressor is good, the pump is good and the fan works great. the water just keeps comming down like a waterfall...

If the evaporator is not getting cold, it could be lack of charge or the coil is dirty and not allowing the compressor to properly cool. Try cleaning the coil first.

Compressor starts then shuts down like head pressure building to high

Make sure that your condenser fan is working. If your unit is water cooled make sure you have water flow.

KM-450MAB making beaping noise-compressor will not run

The cleaning valve must be closed duing the ice making mode. If it is open, the machine will not make ice. The beeping you hear is the alarm which is present on the machine. Remove the front cover and read the included text. This will tell you what alarm you have.

Model KM-450MAB--Ice Machine Making Beaping Noise

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.

Hoshizaki KM-450MAB Ice Machine

maybe not. it could be that the heating cycle is taking a lot of time to remove the ice from the evaporator that is why the electronics is shutting off the compressor as a protection. check the heating cycle if it is working fine. check the evaporator for dirt that would hold the ice slab from falling down quickly. check the level of the unit. it may have move and now its out of level. the unit must be leveled with the ground.
