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.

this web site from Hoshizaki does not show or indicate any wire for heating. See sequence on page 10. You may want to read thru this as this may help you understand how it works and what you may need to address. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

this is a large misconception of this unit. After a defrost cycle is completed, the display stays in "DEF" or "REC" until the box temp reaches 14 degrees of the "set" temp. So, if you have it set on zero, the conditioned space has to get to 14 degrees and then the display will switch over and show the temp. One way to verify this, is if the display shows DEF, check to see if the compressor is running, if so, then this scenario applies.

It appears that you have supplied the ice bin model number and not the ice maker numbers. Please double check your unit and see if you can locate those numbers.

When first turned on, the sump should fill with water. If it does, water solenoid is good. If you have a full sump, and no water pump running, sometimes the "Ice/Off/Wash" switch is bad. Put switch in wash, if pump runs, it's good. Now put in Ice position, if sump fills and pump does not come on and compressor indicates it is in the freeze cycle, replace that switch first. Simplest place to start and lest costly to fix.

There is a "Dump Valve" that is stuck or has trash in it. Follow the small tube from the pump to the white plastic valve that looks kinda triangular with 3 screws. Remove the screw carefully as this is spring loaded. There should be a black rubber piece that is a seal. Pay attention to how it assembles. The spring presses the seal against an opening. Look for something that may be allowing this not to seat.

The machine, all in one, not indoor/outdoor split type, will make beeping sound when something is wrong and stops working until it is turned off and turned back on. Some times the machine needs to be reset with the power on, covers removed, reset button inside on electronic mother board.
The ice machine covers have instructions and information on beeping sounds.

as long as you recovered the charge, pulled a vacuum, changed the filter/dryer, and added the correct amount of refrigerant as a liquid, you should be good to go.

Hoshizaki... | Answered on Jul 07, 2017

with no model number, I can only answer this way: most all Hoshizaki machines use at bin thermostat to send power to the control board. If the thermostat is bad, nothing works. As long as you have the right power and no blown fuses, look at the bin thermostat.
