Ice Machine with No Power

I have two Km-500mah ice makers side by side. After running cleaning cycles, one works fine, the other does not work at all. There's no power. Changed fuse, and the old one is fine. The power OK light on the electronic control is not on. Tried resetting the electronics, with no result. The outlet has power.

Make sure the cleaning valve is turned to the full clockwsie position(closed) and the handle is secure and the screw tight. This will make a switch behind the handle and provide 12v to the control board lighting the red power OK light.

First make sure that the cleaning valve is closed, this is the White wing nut looking handle on the side wall under the inlet water valve. This handle has to be in the closed position which is horizontal to the base it closes a micro-switch. If the handle is loose turn the power switch to Ice have the handle in the open position and feel with your finger behind where the handle closes and push the micro-switch in manually and hold for a few seconds and see if the Power OK light comes on on the control board in the control box.

Hoshizaki ice machine model km 900mwh low side suction line has ice building up on it all the way to the compressor


Is it making ice? Frost on this line is not that uncommon as it is colder than the air around it. Make sure you have good water flow over the evap plates. machine may just need a good chemical cleaning.

Wherehis alarm reset button?


KM says this is an ice maker. Reset button is on the control board. Board is in compartment on the right side where the power switch is located. Remove 2 screws and remove cover by sliding forward. Watch for wires, do this carefully. On the board, up at the top, is a small, white button. With power on, push the button.

I have got Hoshizaki Ice Machine which makes three beep sound every 2 second continuously. I turned off the machine. It looks it needs to be cleaned. Can anyone help me to resolve this problem so that it...


I am assuming that it has run two consecutive cycles. I would first clean the machine inside and out. it should drop ice once cleaned, if not then open up the control box and find out which lights are flashing. I am almost certain that once it is cleaned it will drop ice.

Unit not coming on


Start out by putting the power switch in the "Wash" position. If pump motor comes on, but unit does not run in "Ice" position, more times than not, it's the power switch. If nothing happens in the "Wash" position, check the bin t'stat. It's probably open and not letting power go through it.
Good Luck and hope this works. Get back to me if it doesn't and we'll go a little further. Please get serial number too.

Hoshizaki ice machine model KM-450MAB water runs constantly even on freeze cycle. Water is very cold.


Hoshizaki machines have a water inlet valve that can stick in the open position. This will cause the machine to do silly things. If you can turn the machine off and you can still hear water running, the valve is stuck open. It is an easy fix. Water valve only has 2 wires going to it and 2 water lines. One inlet and one outlet. Just turn off water and kill power at the breaker before doing any work.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Hoshizaki ice machine with constant beeping every 3 seconds


Most likely(50% of the times) Your Ice machine need a real cleaning. not just run clean cycle with ice machine cleaner. every 6 month call HVAC-R guys - machine will last half time longer if u schedule proper maintenance with them. I have seen It all: people try to call "friend", or someone who "knows" how this machines work. Real clean would take up to 3 hours for people who know what they doing. Here is one of my videos, when 3 beeps - long freeze cycle is not common and all others would offer You to get a new Ice Machine. Bill to the owner was 950$, New Machine 3450$ plus labour to install 600$.

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.
