My hoshizaki ice machine KM-900mrf model beeps 3 times and stop making ice. After reset it starts, but stats beeping again after an hour.


Have a look at the side of the evaporator; there is a probe (thermistor) attached to it that tells the control board when to initiate the harvest cycle. make sure it's clean and attached properly and doesn't need replacing. If hitting the float switch initiates the harvest cycle it sounds like you have a blocked/ scaled water tube or switch housing. take off the bottom of the switch assembly (black rubber bit) and clean through to the water chamber. run a cycle of descaler before trying again.

Hosizaki ice machne 3 beeps then after i reset it it runs for 7 seconds and shuts off?


the 3 beeps means that the freeze cycle is longer than 60 minutes. This could be because: float switch stuck, water valve leaking water into the sump, low on freon. If not one of those, it is a more technical issue that would require a service tech. Reset button is a small white button on the control board. Press it while the power is on to reset it.

Temprature blinking


Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

Ice machine not harvesting


if you are sure the float swith is good and the dip switches on the board are correct, you most likely have a bad 1 minute timer on the control board. will have to replace board.

Hoshizaki ice machine beep 3 times, what is it stand for?


in the freeze cycle too long. Most common is the water valve leaking through. Second thing to check is for a stuck float switch.

Turn the unit on and it fills up with water,then goes into defrost cycle then into freeze cycle it starts freezing then just cuts off with no lights on board, not even red power light then will try again...


Most all of Hoshi ice makers have power go thru the bin stat first. It sends power to the board and everything then powers up. Start there and get back to me.I will need model and serial numbers to be sure I have the correct wiring diagram for your unit should we need to go any further. Good Luck.

Ice Machine with No Power


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 KM500-MAE not sending water to harvest


I would not change the pump. If it runs for 3-5 minutes and stops, it has to be a control. The control board runs the freeze cycle for the first 5 minutes. This prevent "Short Cycling" of the freeze cycle. The board looks at the float after the first 5 minutes for the proper water level but should not effect the pump. If the pump does not run in the wash mode, check out the "Power/ Wash" switch. I would start there before I go spending hundreds on pump motor or control board. You may be able to get by on a $20 fix! Do this and get back to me. We will get it going.

Good Luck

Side by side Ref/Freezer


Based on the info you just gave about moving the switch from water and back to ice, I would say the switch. It is a much cheaper part too. If you are capable, and it sounds like you are, remove what you need to to get to the switch. By-pass it by connecting the wires together. If the dispenser works instantly, that's it. If not, then you need to follow the path, probably back to the board.
