Question about Hoshizaki Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hoshizaki kml-250mah Ice Machine Problem. I had someone clean the ice machine and every time it leads to a service call I just can't afford. I get two a beep error. Now I replaced the filter, here's what happens. I turn on. I see a red light and a series of green. On the third green I hear a hiss of a release valve, water starts to circulate, the fan and unit starts and then stops in about 15 seconds and goes into two beeps. It seems the amount of water circulating is slow as if not enough water is available which is why I replaced the filter. Before cleaning it worked like a charm so I don't buy bad compressor, valve et cetera. Now last time someone damaged a device that measures temperature and tells the unit when to stop making ice. I learned that if this goes bad, which it often does because it's a delicate part that you can jumper the two leads where it connects and it bypasses the part. I did this. Same problem. The person who cleaned it did take out the tray that guides the ice that falls into the bin and put it in incorrectly. I found the unit stalled in 2 beep mode because this guide tray was not installed properly and I did see some ice so right after cleaning it did try to produce ice and probably failed due to the backup; unlike now it starts and stops right away. It probably stalled due to the tray being in incorrectly and the ice backed up. The tray is in correctly and the unit has been off for a week. Now, what else should I check? The problem stems from the cleaning and possible backup oh ice that couldn't fall into the bin. Help please.

I see 2 issues for one ur water inlet valve may have gone bad the coils defective u can test it with a multi meter or any appliance parts store should be able to test it for you, also should do a live volt test on it as well. check for full 120, next thing that thing u said that measures temperature? Its called a thermistor and there should be atleast 1 or 2 in ur freezer and maybe 2 or 3 in ur fridge. and it should not be jumpered other words u will get variable termperatures. it should be tested with ameter and should show about In most models around 1300 ohms ( give or take 150 ohms)

My kml 250mah stopped makinr this condition?g ice after descaling. what is a possible cause fo

The valve that you turn to clean the area in between the plates has a small micro switch. This prevents the compressor from running in cleaning cycle. If the compressor is running, there is another issue.

some over flowing is ok as long as it does not go into the ice bin. if it is, the drain in the res is restricted some how, or the pump is not pumping the water out. start with that and let me know

Hoshizaki KML-450MAH ice maker wont start after clean up

If you did a cleaning cycle and used the bypass valve to clean between the evap plates, look for the micro switch on the bypass valve to be bad. It is a small switch attached to the by pass and keeps the compressor off during the cleaning process. I'd start there.

How long is a freeze cycle on your unit? How big are the cubes that it's dropping? The three beep error indicates that the unit exceeded maximum freeze time.
