    Hoshizakis use water to assist during harvest. I have seen where they get enough water to make ice but not enough to harvest ice. The water filters were stopped up just enough to keep it from harvesting. Changed water filters and everything worked.

    After cleaning with Hoshi cleaner with long handle brush following directions. Verify water supply and extend harvest time on board. Verify water flow by checking time it takes to overfill sump at startup.

    that can’t actually be someone’s option of getting ice to release. Are we talking like a food grade silicone spray? Or are we just spraying whatever we have rattling around in the old war wagon.

    Have run into many problems with improper water flow issues. Or just a dirty machine. Need a lot more information to correctly remedy the problem. And I would never use silicone to get ice to drop.

    Maybe try PAM.
    Sorry couldn’t resist.
