    Ice machine float valve

    Hello I got a call today for an ice machine not making ice. It's a Hoshizaki KM 500 MWE, I cleaned it really good and turned it on nothing happened, no water flowing. I checked the float valve seemed to be good, I get continuity at the plug when I lift the float, and then nothing when I drop the float. So I manually fill the reservoir with water, it kicks on, mind you at no time have I read voltage to my water solenoid, so do a faulty float valve cause this problem or am I dealing with a bad control board?

    There is a 10 minute checkout video by hoshi on you tube that shows exactly how to check this. Good video
