hoshizaki ice machine AM-50BAE
« on: December 08, 2013, 11:35:40 AM »
Hoping someone can help me out.

I have a AM-50BAE ice machine. it was working perfect, and I did my somewhat yearly cleaning. Now it's not producing ice. Here's what is is doing. Water is fine, water pushing up to the top like normal. The unit is colling down inside but only to about 37 degrees. I'm thinking this is where the problem is but not sure where to start on correcting this?

I'm not an appliance person by any means so please put it a 1st grade material.


thanks,

JG

I don't know anything about that make and model off hand, but if it has a condenser fan were you cleaned it make sure it's still turning, maybe something got knocked loose and got caught in the fan keeping it from turning. I have seen it happen a few times on refrigerators after the customer cleaned them.
Hope you find our website helpful.

No it's fine and turning. I think I've narrowed it down to the water pump.

I unplugged it and let it sit for a while. Plugged it back up and now it produces ice but it's cloudy. I noticed the pump isn't exactly spraying as strong as it did earlier so I'm thinking there is where my problem is. Just ironic it happened at the same time I cleaned it. Maybe I knocked some trash around while moving it around i guess. I plan on taking it apart tonight to troubleshoot.

Ok ,I've narrowed the problem down to inlet water. As long as the trey is full of water ice is fine, problem is the waters not keeping it full. I've tried to bloe out the water line but no luck. Is there a switch or something that opens water valve and closes valve?
