These ice machines have "fingers" that the ice is formed around. A defrost cycle melts the ice slightly so that they will slide off into the ice bin. The defrost cycle seems to be on for too long. purchase some ice machine cleaner, follow the instuctions on the bottle and this may solve the problem

Hoshizaki km151bah ice machine not making cubes. ice is coming out in one big sheet. Why?


The depth setting on the evaporator cube setting may be set too thick making the cubes stick together. Adjust it to make smaller cubes.

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.

Blue Ice cube maker only make 4 instead of 12 cubes ?


It may just need a cleaning. Use approved cleaner for this modle and sanitize the bin after the cleaning. If it is making some ice, most likely there is not an issue with the charge.

Hoshizaki IM-240DME no harvest time.


are you sure this is a Hoshi and not a Cold Draft? Your model number in not in any of my manuals and the Hoshi tech site has no listing for such a machine.
Double check it.

Ice cube shape


hoshizakis make ice cubes depending on the amount of water in the sump. if you are starving for water the sump only partially fills in the fill time allowed . then it makes ice until the water is used up and the float switch drops and the cubes are little slices. you can adjust the size of cubes you want by raising or lowering the float assembley in the sump. if its to low the water rises and the float rises and tells the machine you happy with little slices. if you raise it up to max height you can max fill before float satisfies and max ice cubes. But if you are starving for water the time to fill will run out before the sump fills and cubes will be small no matter where you set the floats assembly. water starving can be due to crud in the water line, to small a water line, most hoshizes take a half inch line ,or a clogged water filter. if you suspect a filter take it out . if fill is drastically improved you need a new filter. be aware that starving for water on a hoshizaki will eventually lead to broken evap plates. big time expensive.good luck. i put in a new machine ruined by starving water and the new one made little chips of ice real quick. i finally pulled the filter out and voila! big cubes and great production.

starving for water. clean or replace water filter or adjust water float assembly that determines how big cubes are. probably not getting abundant water during timed fill sequence. no water equals little ice.
