This indicates that the backup freeze timer terminated the freeze cycle. Stayed in freeze cycle 60 minutes. Causes can be: stuck float switch, water valve leaking incoming water, and the more extreme can be hot gas valve leaking, txv not feed properly, low refrigerant charge, or bad compressor. Usually one of the first 2 items are the root cause.

When the compressorshuts off it beeps once is this normal


If you are turning off power, yes this is normal. If it beeps at the end of a cycle, this is not normal. One beeps means the evap is getting too hot. May have hot water entering the unit, or several other issues. May need a tech to check the unit out.

3 beeps every 3 seconds


This usually occurs when there is a water supply issue. If you remove the front cover and expose the right side of the unit, you will see (at the top right) a panel with a black button on it about 1/3 the way in. USE A FLASHLIGHT to locate it.... there is an electrical shock hazard here.

Push the button and the beeps will stop. If the warning recurs, check for water pressure to the unit.

First, if you have a filter system, crack the nut at the entry to the filter just enough to see if water is present there. If not, go to the source and check the angle-stop... change it, or open it, as required.

If you have water at the filter inlet, do the same thing (after tightening the nut you loosened) at the outlet. No water?..... change the filters. Water present?... do the same at the entry to the ice machine.

Water at the entrance? Turn off the water and remove that fitting to expose the inlet solenoid valve and examine the strainer. If clogged, remove and clean the strainer.

Beyond this, you will need a technician to deal with the issue. Call the Hoshizaki factory at 1*800*438*6087 to find a factory-authorized service company in your area.

3 beeps when in failure. makes ice for several hrs some times. compresser heat extreme. this unit is water cooled but h2o out put seams to low what should out put flow be?


First, 3 beeps means that the unit was in the freeze cycle too long and the 60 minutes back up timer kicked in and took over.
Now, for the water flow/ head pressure water cooled control.
You set the water flow for what ever it takes to achieve a head (High Side) pressure of 270 psi. the gallons per minute are of no matter. It's the pressure that you want to achieve and maintain.
If you fix the head pressure problem, the beeps should go away.
If you don't have a gage set, then measure the temp of the exiting water from the condenser. It should be in the 104 to 115 degree range. Any lower or higher, and the unit will not run like it was designed to do.
Hope this knocks it out for you.

It beeps 3 times then pauses then beeps 3 times then pauses. Keeps this pattern


Unit was in the freeze cycle for 60 minutes and the freeze back up timer took over the process. In most all cases, either a stuck float switch or a leaking water valve.
Hope this helps.

Beeping 3 times every 3 seconds


The 3 beeps indicates that the unit was in the freeze cycle for 60 minutes. Causes: 1.) Water valve leaking, allowing water to continually enter the system. 2.) Float switch stuck, sending false signal to board. This indicates ice not being produced. 3,.) Low freon level causing long freeze cycle. 4.) Hot gas valve leaking thru causing warmer than normal evap plates=low production. 5.) Expansion Valve not feeding freon properly to evap plates.
Items 1 and 2 are the most common. Number 3 possible due to freon leak in the system. Number 4 and 5 are usually a very rare occurance.
Hope this helps ya.

Beeps 3 times when turned on


3 beeps means the machine has ran two 1 hour cycles back to back to make ice an average timeframe for ice making is 25-30 min. Could be several issues, float switch dirty, water valve leaking by, dirty spray tubes, dirty evap., then go to refrigeration Expansion valve, compressor, charge, Hot gas valve leaking by,,,,,

Hoshizaki km-1300skf 3 beep error code


The 3 beeps indicates that the freeze cycle is longer than 60 minutes. with the suction pressure at 20, it sounds like low on charge (freon). I believe this is an R 404-A unit. Other things to look for are: Stuck float switch (in the up position), Water valve leaking, hot gas valve leaking, txv not feeding properly, weak compressor. Look at high side pressure too. It should not go below 210 psi during the freeze cycle. Low pressure should be in the middle to upper 40's psi.

Let me know if you need more.
