Water leaking onto ice and outside panel on Hoshizaki KM-500MAE

I've found that water is leaking from my KM-500MAE. Part of this water is dripping onto the ice cubes that are dropped into the collection area inside the machine which is making them melt. It is also dripping onto the cover that flips open ot access where the ice is dropped. The machine was full of ice this morning and it has all melted since the water was dripping onto the ice.

Here is a picture of where some water has leaked out. This is right above the cover that opens up to access the ice.

Any suggestions?

Remove the cover where the persons finger is and check to make sure that it is not covered with ice. Sounds like your machine iced oup and you will need to clean the coils and possibly replace the thermostat

HOSHIZAKI KM-500MAE - Fillstray then i hear a click after about a minute and then the compressor never kicks on and no icefreezes

any beeping? beeping says what problem it is having.
Reset it while energyzed by pushing the button way back of the control board in the control panel section.
The switch needs to be set to run and valve to normal position, full ice bin sensor may be stuck to full position, exercise the sensor flap.
Post what you tried to remedy the situation for better help ideas. Trouble shooting instruction are included on the machine cover doors.

Hoshizaki has service info on line in pdf format on servicing and trubleshooting. The machine itself has info on what three beeps message is. Sorry, no pinpoint fix

I worked on a hoshizaki km-500mae when i turn it on the first cycle it makes good ice but after the first cycle it makes little pieces. why?

time the cycle. if it is only running about 5 minutes and going into harvest, look for sump loosing water. Look at where the unit drains (like a floor drain) while the unit is running to see how much, if any water is draining. does not take much to make an early harvest. also, sump may not be filling up completely but with just enough water to satisfy the float.

Hoshizaki KM-500MAH not making ice

Look at water solenoid valve when the unit is running in ice mode. Check to see if the water is shuting off completely. If the water valve does not close properly it will keep adding a little bit warm water to the ice a slow down the ice production.
