With no model number, I can only answer this way: most all Hoshizaki machines use at bin thermostat to send power to the control board. If the thermostat is bad, nothing works. As long as you have the right power and no blown fuses, look at the bin thermostat.

No power light


Is unit running? If so, don't worry about the light, they regularly fail ! If unit not running, check fuse, power socket and mains cable to make sure you have power to unit.

Power light not working


The repair to this depends alot on how flexible you are. It is going to require, your getting down on your side, and seeing how much access you have to the lite device.

DO NOT TURN THE REFER ON ITS SIDE OR LAY IT DOWN ON ITS BACK.. IF YOU DO, WHEN YOUR DONE, STAND IT UP AND DO NOT PLUG IT IN FOR 48 HOURS or TWICE THE TIME THE UNIT WAS LAYING DOWN. WHICH EVER IS SHORTER.

Basically, you may have a corroded connection or a burned out bulb. You can either replace the whole lite device, or you can install a second lite device that shows the unit has power going to it.

If it were me, I would just install a second lite. If your electrically savoy, then finding a power source would not be a problem, you could attach one to the vent cover on the bottom of the unit. They probably are about 2-4 bucks. You could drill a small fitted hole in the vent the covers the front bottom of the unit and press it in there and route the wire to where ever you choose.

If you want to know if you have power to the unit, what I have done in my garage (I have a freezer with the same problem), I just took a cheap radio, plugged it into the same plug outlet and turned it to my favorite station. Now, when I go to the garage, if the radio is ON, I am OK, if not,,,,,,, I open the door and check and see if things are A-OK in there and find out why my power disappeared . It has only happen to me once in about 15 years, and it was a wall socket that CLICKS OFF when a wrong variation of voltage is detected.

So, I basically listen for the radio in the garage. Hope that helps.

kindly,

Jim

Power freeze light does not come on


Hi rigbyrr - The Power Freezer light indicates that the freezer is properly connected to electrical power. Is there power to the unit? The light glows even when the temperature control is turned to OFF. Let's try reprogramming the freezer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit back. If the issue persists, check to ensure that the appliance temperature control is in the ON position and that the plug is not loose and tightly pushed into electrical outlet. If everything is properly set then in this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your unit.

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.

Power signal light is flickering


If the unit is still working, and the power light is flickering, don't worry about it. I've seen this very often where the small, rectangular power light flickers and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the unit. It's just the light going bad. It will probably, eventually go out all together. Again, as long as it's working and keeping temp. don't worry.

THE GREEN POWER LIGHT FLICKERS, AND COOLS ONLY WHEN THE FAST FREEZE POWER BUTTON IS TURNED ON


This sounds like the freezer stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit. Whilst sourcing the part, put a standard socket timer on to the plug to stop the unit running all the time.

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.

Freezer doesn't run


If you got power to the unit i would put a jumper wire in the thermostat ( unplugged the unit ,open the housing where the thermostat or cold control is ,and youll see two wires connecting to it ,put a jumper wire between both with electrical tape to insulated and plugg it in , if it works replace the thermostat with the same new one ) That's the most common problem when there's power and everythig else is dead.

Viking freezer and fridge power on but not getting cold.


Are you sure the compressors are running, it could just be that the fans are starting but the compressor does not start.

It sounds as though you may have fried the boards again.

Remove the top grille and reach in to the compressor, to see if it is running, you should be able to feel it vibrating, there should also be some heat to it, not neccessarily hot.

have you tried putting surge protectors on the outlets, to save the boards in the future?
