I have a Hoshizaki Ice machine model number AM-50BAE-AD.

Customer Question

I have a Hoshizaki Ice machine model number AM-50BAE-AD. When I turn it on it runs and starts forming the ice on the top but then it just keeps running and does not harvest the ice. Is there some kind of a timer that is broken that is not letting the machine dump ice? or maybe a control board?

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly. Is it forming ice super thick in all the cube molds?
