    I don't recall ever seeing a Hoshizaki cuber slush, but I read something about an anti-slush control dip switch setting on the board...but I think that was on remote condensing unit models.

    What model was it?

    I have not seen this either on a Hosi, Doesn't the pump stop for a certain amount of time to prevent this ?

    No, Hoshi pumps don't stop. They just don't slush due to their evap design. I have never seen one slush more than just a tiny bit floating on the sump water.

    I think it might have some thing to do with the incoming water being to cold.

    I have seen incoming water temps just under 40 degrees not cause any issues with a Hoshi.

    A slushing hoshi were it is uncommon you will find debris in the water distribution tubes for the inner evap (hoshi has water that collects cold by running water between evap panels as well as over icemaking side) pull all the upper plastic dist tubes out and clean it will solv your problem

    Also hoshi has a water inlet temp probe that will tell if hot water is present it will send off 4 beeps from the board

    Grayline, there should be no water running between plates during freeze ever. Also, there is no inlet water temp probe, and I think a 4 beep error is shorted float.

    Yes your right forgot 4 beeps= shorted k4 but if you pull your dist tubes out youll see there in a tee shape with holes in the bottom which fits between the evap plates to circulate and get all the cold water off the inner tubes

    The inlet water distributor most certainly flows water between the plates. This functions to distribute heat during harvest. There should be no flow between plates during freeze ever.
