    The link doesn't look like our machine which is the hoshizaki model km 150 baf.

    We don't see bin control switch and if we find it, how do we get the machine to start (on/off switch does nothing; circuit breaker fine; water fine; it worked last season and now won't turn on...)

    not sure where exactly to find bin control switches from diagram, ie, where to remove panel to gain access to get the machine to start! see how it works to control ice but not how to get it started

  • This bin includes a proximity switch and actuator paddle assembly. The mechanical bin control assembly mounts in the ice drop zone area and will shut the unit down within 3 seconds when ice pushes the actuator paddle to the full right position, away from the proximity switch. Shut down will only occur during the first 5 minutes of the freeze cycle when the paddle is moved away from the proximity switch. If the paddle is moved away from the proximity switch and held at any other time during the sequence, the unit will continue to run until the next freeze cycle occurs. This feature allows for a full batch of ice every cycle so that there are no small cubes in the bin.
  • The bin is in the back and must be pushed all the way to the side (see diagram) You can also read more about this on page 30 of the manual I have provided (below)

    • The link is actually to a techs guide to your ice make not a users manual. The techs guide is far more advanced than a simple users manual. Don't loose it :)

    • It's inside the icemaker itself. Where the ice sets.

Hoshizaki ice machine will not power up


with not model or serial numbers, I can only suggest that it may very well be the "bin stat". This is a thermostat that has a sensing bulb that is in the bin and senses the ice when it touches it to shut down the machine. If this is bad, no power goes to the control board. Try jumping this out with a jumper wire and see if the machine comes on.

Hoshizaki km-900mah ice maker won't start the freeze process


cycle is, fill cycle for 1 minute first. If there is not water entering the unit when first turned on, look for that issue. Water turned off, water valve not working or some restriction, clogged water filters, etc. That is got to happen first. Don't over look the bin stat being bad. Nothing happens if teh bin stat is bad. It sends voltage to the control board that runs the unit.

No power. checked fuse box. Tried reset. no luck.


If you are sure you have power to the wiring of the machine, check the bin control. If it's frozen in the open position (electrically) or the capillary tube that connects it to the sensing bulb that sets inside the storage bin is cracked, it will keep the machine off.

This is the service manual for you machine. The wiring diagrams on pages 56 and 57 shows that the machine does nothing unless the bin control is in the "Closed position. It is a temperature controled switch. If it is broken, not works. Check that out first.

Hoshizaki ice maker am-50bae . Made ice regularily--- filled ice bin half way...next day-- all ice melted away with no more new ice? next day shut off for 3 hours now o new ice.


make a few quick checks. If there are water filters on the system, be sure they are not restricked. Could be clogged. Next, check the bin stat. It usually is mounted in the ice bin. If it breaks or goes bad, it shuts down the machine. Start there and let me know if I can be of any further help.

Bin control


The bin control shuts it off when the ice bin is full. Without a bin control it should keep making ice and never stop.
