Will not produce any ice unless i switch it on and off and it will only dump once or twice
Hi, I have worked on many Hoshizaki machines. Is this model air or water cooled? If it is air cooled, check that the back of the condenser is clean for a start. 99% of the time, as this machine is making ice but not dumping it on its own, is if it has not been cleaned in awhile, will cause this problem. You need to pick up a gallon of nickel safe ice machine cleaner to run through the system in the cleaning setting. Also, the plates that the ice forms on before it goes into harvest must also be cleaned and any other water tubes you can remove by hand to run bottle brushes through them. You wouldn't think that this can cause a problem, but it is the main problem we run up against. You will notice a slime build-up on different parts also. This nickel cleaner can be purchased at a a/c refrigeration parts house or a appliance parts house. It is concentrated and you should always have it on hand. Do this, and get back to me to update me on the units operation. Good Luck,
