Question about Hoshizaki Commercial Freezer KM-500MAH

1 Answer

Something wrong with Harvesting cycle, ICE will not come out, coils freeze up.

We purchased a brand new KML-250MAH put it in operation, everything works fine, except that the ice doesn't drop down. I think there is something wrong with the harvesting cycle, because when I open up the panel on the top to inspect the coils, all I see is a huge chunk of ice around it. Is there any way I can make the harvesting cycle longer? Can I manually make the harvesting cycle run so that the ice can drop down and defrost quickly? Any suggestions on what may be happening?

The valve that you turn to clean the area in between the plates has a small micro switch. This prevents the compressor from running in cleaning cycle. If the compressor is running, there is another issue.

Why does my KML-600MAH only make water not ice?


Check to see how long it stays in the freeze cycle. normally it takes a least 20 minutes to make a batch. If less than that, you are probably loosing water causing an early harvest and almost no ice.

Hello there: You didn't give out enough informations for me to think what is wrong with a new unit like yours.. What did the serviceman been doing durring these 6 times service call. Did the unit ever work even for one day? Did he change the defrost timer or just made adjustment on the timer. What happen, is the unit icing up so much so that the unit is just a block of ice and that blocked the circulation of the freezing cold air around the unit . Ice is only 32 degree and that is why you only can get 40 degree box. May be the drain tube always frosten up that cause the ice building back up to the coil and form a big lumb of ice. Let me know what is happening , did he add some gas in everytime he service your unit? Let me know more and I will try to solve your problem. Dickson

The sadle valve is located on the copper pipe where the tube attaches to your water pipe in the house. Shut the water off at the saddle valve. Remove the hose from the rear of the frig on the water inlet valve and put it into a pail. Tunr the water on at the saddle valve and see how fast the water comes out. Some times if the saddle valve is installed on the bottom of the copper pipe they will get corrosive and restrict water flow. Open and close the valve several times to make sure it is clear and reinstall the hose to the rear of the frig. Turn the water back on to see if it works.
