turn it on again, while watching the icemaker. This will reset the controller, and
in some cases normal operation will resume.
CAUTION
1. Check that the icemaker has been earthed properly. If not, the Controller
Board will not work properly.
2. Do not change wiring and connections, or the Controller Board will not work
properly.
3. Do not touch the reverse side of the Controller Board and tiny electronic
devices on it.
4. Do not repair the electronic devices and parts on the Controller Board in the
field. Replace the whole board assembly when it fails.
5. To get static free, always touch the metal part of the icemaker before servicing.
Electrostatic Discharge will cause severe damage to the Controller Board.
6. The Signal Ground Wire must be connected to the Shield Plate when replacing
the Controller Board after service.
7. The Controller Board is fragile. Handle with care.
* Do not drop the board on the floor.
* Make sure that the board is placed correctly into the guides in the Control
Box. Mis-alignment could cause breakage when replacing the Control Box
Cover.

[c] SEQUENCE - LED INDICATORS ON/OFF PATTERN
[d] FAULT DIAGNOSIS
Check the status of the Service Lamp on the Controller Board (LED-5, See “[c] SEQUENCE”)
by removing the Control Box Cover.
Lamp ON - Water Plate closed
This tends to indicate the Back-up Timer has stopped machine operation during the freeze
cycle. High ambient and water temperatures are an obvious cause. But check out each
component that could result in an extended freezing time (See guide below).
Lamp ON - Water Plate open
The Timer has stopped the machine because of an excessive defrost time. See the guide
below to check out the probable cause.
Lamp flashing ON/OF
If on the first cycle, check out the Cam operation and/or Toggle Switch. If the machine has
been in service for some time, the Controller Board may be at fault.
REMEMBER: Hoshizaki controllers are very reliable. They also control every component’s
operation. So if a component malfunctions, the controller will respond.
Do not replace controllers in an attempt to shorten the diagnostic process
and not before carefully checking the actual fault and possible cause.
When the icemaker stops, the Controller Board Interlock Indicator shows possible faults.

[e] CONTROLS AND ADJUSTMENT
1) Cube Control (VR5)
A cube control on the Controller Board is factory adjusted to produce constant cubes all year
around.
When the user needs ice cubes with smaller or larger diameter holes, adjust the Variable
Resistor VR5 (Cube Control) using a miniature flat blade screwdriver.
CAUTION
When adjusting the Variable Resistor VR5 for smaller dimple cubes, it may be
necessary to also increase the water supply time to melt away fragments of ice
obstructing the Water Plate which could prevent cubes falling into the Bin.

2) Backup Timer (VR3)
A backup timer is set to stop the freezing process
when the freeze cycle time extends beyond approx.
45 minutes (high ambient or water temperature).
Adjustment will not be required under normal use.

LONGER
3) Defrost Control (VR2)
The defrost control regulates the time period between ice-drop and actuator motor restart.
Any adjustment will not be required for normal operation. Factory setting is shown in the table
below. When servicing or replacing the controller board, adjust the Variable Resistor VR2
using a miniature flat blade screwdriver.

4) Water Supply Control
When adjusting the Variable Resistor VR5 (Cube Control) for smaller dimple cubes, it may
be necessary to adjust the water supply time setting as well, following the instruction below.
Cut the jumper wire JE (marked by arrow) by
a nipper. Water supply time will be 60 sec.
when the Water Plate is closed.
Normal setting = 15 sec. with Water Plate closed
Note: 1. See “II. 2. [a] CONTROLLER BOARD” for location of the Jumper Wires.
2. Any adjustment will not be required under normal use. If an insufficient water supply
results in production of cloudy ice, check to see if the Filter of the Water Valve is
clogged or water pressure is reduced.
3. In some areas where excessively hard water (approx. 250 ppm or more) results in
production of cloudy ice, change the water supply time setting. Also, the Tank Drain
Pipe must be moved to the drain position to prevent concentration of calcium
carbonate, etc. See the figure below.

3. FAN MOTOR CONTROL - DME/XME ONLY
The Condenser Fan Motor rotates at two speeds. The Motor is operated by Relay X6 which
is in turn controlled by the Bimetal Thermostat which is attached to the Control Box. When the
Relay is energised (Thermostat contacts closed), the Motor operates at approximately half
speed. When the Relay is de-energised (Thermostat contacts open), the Motor operates at
full speed.
Half speed = 11±3°C
Full speed = 21±3°C (1272 R.P.M.)

5. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
WARNING
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
This icemaker requires an earth that meets the national and local electrical code
requirements. To prevent possible severe electrical shock injury to individuals
or extensive damage to equipment, install a proper earth wire to this icemaker.
Remove the plug from the mains socket before any maintenance, repairs or
cleaning is undertaken.
* This icemaker must have a separate power supply or receptacle of 220 - 240V.
* Stacked icemakers should each have a separate receptacle, but they must all be connected
in parallel to the same single phase supply or circuit with sufficient ampacity. In addition
and to avoid nuisance tripping, individual circuit breakers for each machine should not be
used.
* The main control box fuse is rated at 5A and should only be replaced by a qualified service
engineer.
* Usually an electrical permit and services of a licensed electrician are required.
* If the supply cord and the plug should need to be replaced, it should only be done by a
qualified service engineer.
For the U.K. and the Republic of Ireland only
* The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green & Yellow = Earth
Blue = Neutral
Brown = Live
As the colours of the wire in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the
coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured Green-and-Yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter E or by the symbol
or coloured Green or Green-andYellow. The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter N or coloured Black. The wire which is coloured Brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured Red.

Loosen
4) Connect the flared copper tubes on to the
icemaker and Condenser Unit. The two tubes
have the same diameter so mark them for a
distinction between the gas line and the liquid
Copper Tube
line to prevent misconnection. Apply some
clean refrigerant oil of a suitable type to the
surfaces of the Flare before connection and
tightening. Support the Access Valve with a
spanner on the flat surfaces when tightening
the nuts.
Access Valve
Fig. 19
Note:1. Tighten the Flare Nuts to a torque of 38±4 Nm.
2. Check the distinction marks on both ends of each copper tubing to make sure the
connections are correct.
3. The tubes should not vibrate. Fix or secure the tubes to prevent stressing.
5) Remove the Service Gauge Port Caps from the Access Valves on the icemaker. Evacuate
the lines through the Gauge Ports for 20 minutes at max. 0.1 torr. Charge both lines with
vapour refrigerant R404A to a pressure of 1 bar. Add nitrogen to raise the pressure to 15
bar. Thoroughly leak test the joints with a leak detector or soap bubbles.
6) Evacuate the lines again at max. 0.1 torr. Vapour charge the lines to 1 - 2 bar with refrigerant
R404A. (The actual charge will depend upon the length of tube run.)
Base charge up to 10 m: 2400 g
Additional charge for each additional meter: 40 g
As the total precharged refrigerant amount in the icemaker and remote condenser is 2400
g, the required refrigerant charge will be:
40 g x [length of tube run - 10] m
Example - If the length of tubing run is 15 m (i.e. distance between the icemaker and
Condenser)
15 m - 10 m = 5 m
Base charge = 2400 g (up to 10 m run)
Additional charge = 40 g/m
Required refrigerant charge = 40 g x 5 m = 200 g
On completion of the refrigerant charge, remove the charging cylinder and charging lines.
Refit the Port Caps and tighten to a torque of 10±1 Nm.

* Hoshizaki recommends that the water-cooled Condenser should be connected to a closed
circuit recirculating type cooling system utilizing a tower, water chiller or similar (see Fig. 30
and 31). Water make up should be via a ball valve/break tank arrangement.
* Whilst connecting a water-cooled Condenser to a mains water (potable) supply will not
affect the performance of the machine, it will most certainly cause a high use/waste of a
valuable resource and is not recommended.
* The services of a licensed or coded plumber should be used to ensure a correct installation.
* The connections should be made properly in compliance with the applicable national or
local regulations.
[a] Standard connections according to WRC regulations in U.K. (Fig. 30 and 31)
* When selecting a Cooling Tower, refer to the following peak values of heat flow in the
Condenser:
Model
IM-240DW/XW/AW: 5235W
* Pipes between the Cooling Tower and the icemaker should be at least 20 mm DIA to reduce
pressure loss, even though the icemaker fittings are 13 mm DIA.
* Pressure loss in the water circuit inside the unit will be 5 to 6 m when the cooling water flows
at the ratio of 4 to 5 lit/min.
* Select a Circulating Pump referring to the above values of heat flow.
* Do not use a Cascade Pump, or the Water Regulator will vary the flow and stop it during the
defrost cycle.
* The Strainer must be cleaned periodically.

2) Wash the Bin liner, Ice Deflector and Door inner surface with a neutral non-abrasive cleaner.
Rinse thoroughly with a clean cloth and fresh water.
3) Either mix 5 litres of water with 18 ml of 5.25% sodium hypochlorite solution in a suitable
container, or the recommended Hoshizaki sanitiser as directed.
4) Soak a clean sponge or cloth with the solution, and wipe the Bin liner, Ice Deflector and
Door inner surface.
5) Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and a clean cloth to wipe off the solution. Close the Bin
Door.
Note: Some solutions may cause damage to the Bin liner surfaces or corrosion on the
metal parts. Always rinse the sanitiser unless directed otherwise by Hoshizaki
guidelines.
[4] Air Filter (Air-Cooled Model Only)
Plastic mesh Air Filters are fitted to remove dirt or dust from the air, preventing the Condenser
from getting clogged. As the Filters become dirty, air circulation through the Condenser will
be reduced, affecting the icemaker’s performance.
Remove and clean the Air Filters at least twice per month:
1) Unscrew and remove the Front Panel. The Filter is fitted on the inside of the panel behind
the air slots.
2) Unscrew and remove the Louver on the Right Side Panel. The Filter is fitted to the inside
of the plastic Louver.
Note: Do not put your hand inside the machine compartment.
3) Remove the Air Filters.
4) Clean the Air Filters by using a vacuum cleaner. When severely clogged, use warm water
and a neutral cleaner to wash the Air Filters.
5) Rinse and dry the Air Filters thoroughly, and place them back in position.

4. ICEMAKING WATER SYSTEM
To keep the icemaker hygienic, clean and sanitize the icemaking water system at least once
every six months. More frequent cleaning and sanitizing may be required depending on the
water quality.
CAUTION
1. Do not touch the Washing Switch with damp hands.
2. Always wear rubber gloves, eye protectors, apron, etc. for safe handling of
the cleaner and sanitizer.
3. Use the cleaners and sanitizers recommended by Hoshizaki. Contact your
local Hoshizaki office for further details. (The instructions below give an
example of those recommended cleaners and sanitizers.)
4. Never mix cleaning and sanitizing solutions in an attempt to shorten cleaning
time.
5. Wipe off any splashed or spilt cleaner/sanitizer immediately.
6. Do not use any ammonia type cleaners on any part of the icemaker.
7. When the ambient and water temperatures are 10°C or below, the Water Pan
may remain open. Warm the icemaking compartment up to 20°C around the
Thermistor.
8. Be sure to follow the cleaning and sanitizing instructions below.
1) Use a suitable container to dilute 236 ml of the cleaner (“Nickel-Safe Ice Machine Cleaner”
by The Rectorseal Corporation) with 11.4 lit. of water.
2) Open the Storage Bin Door, and remove all the ice to avoid contaminating by the cleaner.
3) Remove the Front and Top Panels. See Fig. 2.
4) If the icemaker is in a defrost cycle, wait until a freeze cycle starts.
5) Remove the screw, and move the Tank Drain Pipe to the drain
position. See Fig. 36.
6) Push the Bin Control Switch to the right into the “bin full” position.
Hold the switch until the icemaker stops in 10 seconds. See Fig.
43.

VIII. ADJUSTMENT
1. EXPANSION VALVE
The Expansion Valve is factory-adjusted. Do not adjust it except at replacement or service.
Adjust the valve setting, if necessary, as follows:
1) Remove the Cap Nut.
2) Rotate the Adjust Screw.
3) Watch holes of ice cubes produced. Standard setting is that Evaporator inlet side and
outlet side cubes have almost the same diameters. To make the inlet side larger, rotate
90 - 180° clockwise. Smaller, counterclockwise. Do not rotate more than 180° at a time.
CAUTION
Over adjustment of the valve may result in liquid refrigerant return causing freezing
to the suction line and severe damage to the Compressor.

IX. REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT
1. SERVICE FOR REFRIGERANT LINES
[a] SERVICE INFORMATION
1) Allowable Compressor Opening Time and Prevention of Lubricant Mixture [R404A]
The compressor must not be opened more than 30 minutes in replacement or service. Do
not mix lubricants of different compressors even if both are charged with the same refrigerant,
except when they use the same lubricant.
2) Treatment for Refrigerant Leak
If a refrigerant leak occurs in the low side of an ice maker, air may be drawn in. Even if the low
side pressure is higher than the atmospheric pressure in normal operation, a continuous
refrigerant leak will eventually reduce the low side pressure below the atmospheric pressure
and will cause air suction. Air contains a large amount of moisture, and ester oil easily absorbs
a lot of moisture. If an ice maker charged with R404A has possibly drawn in air, the drier
must be replaced. Be sure to use a drier designed for R404A.
3) Handling of Handy Flux [R404A]
Repair of the refrigerant circuit needs brazing. It is no problem to use the same handy flux
that has been used for the current refrigerants. However, its entrance into the refrigerant
circuit should be avoided as much as possible.
4) Oil for Processing of Copper Tubing [R404A]
When processing the copper tubing for service, wipe off oil, if any used, by using alcohol or
the like. Do not use too much oil or let it into the tubing, as wax contained in the oil will clog the
capillary tubing.
5) Service Parts for R404A
Some parts used for refrigerants other than R404A are similar to those for R404A. But never
use any parts unless they are specified for R404A because their endurance against the
refrigerant have not been evaluated. Also, for R404A, do not use any parts that have been
used for other refrigerants. Otherwise, wax and chlorine remaining on the parts may adversely
affect the R404A.
6) Replacement Copper Tubing [R404A]
The copper tubes currently in use are suitable for R404A. But do not use them if oily inside.
The residual oil in copper tubes should be as little as possible. (Low residual oil type copper
tubes are used in the shipped units.)
74
7) Evacuation, Vacuum Pump and Refrigerant Charge [R404A]
Never allow the oil in the vacuum pump to flow backward. The vacuum level and vacuum
pump may be the same as those for the current refrigerants. However, the rubber hose and
gauge manifold to be used for evacuation and refrigerant charge should be exclusively for
R404A.
8) Refrigerant Leak Check
Refrigerant leaks can be detected by charging the unit with a little refrigerant, raising the
pressure with nitrogen and using an electronic detector. Do not use air or oxygen instead of
nitrogen for this purpose, or rise in pressure as well as in temperature may cause R404A to
suddenly react with oxygen and explode. Be sure to use nitrogen to prevent explosion.
[b] REFRIGERANT RECOVERY
The refrigerant must be recovered if required by an applicable law. A Low-side Access
Valve is provided on an extension pipe connected to the suction port of the Compressor.
On the DME/XME and DWME/XWME, a Tap Valve should initially be fitted to the High-side
Process Tube to be replaced with a proper Access Valve (see Fig. 45) when recovery is
completed.
The DSME/XSME high side can be accessed using the Gauge Port on the Upper Condenser
Line Access Valve (liquid return) attached to the right side of the icemaker.
Recover the refrigerant, and store it in a proper container. Do not discharge the refrigerant
into the atmosphere.
[c] EVACUATION AND RECHARGE
1) On the DME/XME and DWME/XWME, attach Charging Hoses, Service Manifold and
Vacuum Pump to the Low-side and High-side (to be fitted by servicer) Access Valves.
Connect the DSME/XSME Charging Hoses as described in “[b] REFRIGERANT
RECOVERY”. If possible, use Quick Release Connectors onto the Access Valves
(especially on the high side).
2) Turn on the Vacuum Pump.
3) Allow the Vacuum Pump to pull down to a 760 mmHg vacuum. Evacuating period depends
on the pump capacity.
4) Close the Low-side and High-side Valves on the Service Manifold.
5) Disconnect the Vacuum Pump, and attach a Refrigerant Charging Cylinder to accurately
weigh in the liquid charge. Remember to purge any air from the Charging Hose. See the
Nameplate for the required refrigerant charge.
75
Important Note: The DSME/XSME Nameplate will only state a base refrigerant charge
for up to 10 m of remote tubing (distance between Condenser and
icemaker). When this distance exceeds 10 m, refer to “III. 6. [c]
INSTALLATION” for refrigerant charge calculation.
6) Open the High-side Valve on the Gauge Manifold, and accurately measure in the liquid
charge. Close the valve on the Charging Cylinder before closing the High-side Manifold
Valve. Any remaining liquid in the line can be charged into the low side.
Note: Always charge in the liquid stage, as many refrigerants are blends and vapour
charging will affect the blend consistency (eg. R404A).
7) Turn on the icemaker. Release the High-side Access Connector, and allow pressure in
the charging line to slowly enter the low side of the system. Cap off the High-side Access
Valve. When pressure reduces on the low side, disconnect the low side charging line
and cap off the Access Valve.
8) Always cap the Access Valves to prevent a refrigerant leak.
9) Always thoroughly leak test all joints and valve caps.
10) Avoid charging large quantities of liquid into the low side in case of damage to the
Compressor.
