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.

GDM12 reach-in just cycle clicks when plugged in - not cooling


Clicking like this is usually a problem with the compressor start device. They are prone to failing and the overload protector is cycling to hopefully protect the compressor from burning out. If the start device is a solid state device if you remove it from the compressor it should not rattle. If it does it is bad and will need to be replaced. Installing a new strat device should get it back up and running.

Hi I have a whirlpool upright freezer ev190nxwn00. That will not cool


Yes I could be. My advice, if this freezer is 10-12 years old or more, you may be getting ready to spend a lot of money starting now. If not, have somebody physically look at it. Hopefully, it is just the relay or capacitor.

I have an electrical burn smell inside the 49sd, all seems to be working... just the smell that is stronger inside.

This is the web site for your manual for your unit. I've had some situations where some rubber type insulation has melted but I've not experienced any problem other than it makes a mess. Hope this helps.

Motor goes on/off every few second.


You have problem with the motor compressor,it is trying to start, but cannot for one reason or another, could be siezed motor, sticking start relay.etc'
It is stopping and starting due to the motor overload device cutting in and out. it acts as a safety device.
This is usually associated with a serious malfunction..Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Burning Smell


Keep it unplugged and look for burned wires, or rubber wires hardened from extreme heat. This will be a good start in finding what is going wrong. One more thing to check is if the compressor is heating up after running for a while. Let it run for 20 min or so, shut off the power and feel the compressor. Is it hot?
