    Hoshizaki cleaning noise

    The last few ice makers were making loud screeching noises during the clean process, hoshizaki says this is normal and goes away once chemicals are flushed out of auger. This is true, the noise does go away, last few times it didn't and had to shut it down as it was getting that loud, one time it blew fuse for auger. has this ever happened to any one else. using same cleaning procedure with same type and amount of chemicals. Thanxs in advance..

    did you use too much cleaner solution?

    what type of cleaner are you using?

    Yeah, definetely try using less cleaning solution, that stuff goes a long ways, but if you're having an issue even though you are mixing it correctly, you might have a little bearing wear or some build up that'll take more than running cleaner through it. Get Hoshizaki's bearing check tool too.
