Water Quality
All water, including potable water supplied by
municipalities, contains some impurities or
minerals. Water absorbs impurities from the air as
rain and/or as it flows through the ground. Some of
the impurities are solid particles, these are known
as suspended solids, and a fine particle filter will
remove them. Other impurities are chemically
bonded to the water molecules, and cannot be
filtered out, these are called dissolved solids.
Filters and Treatment
In general, it is always a good idea to filter the
water. A water filter, if it is of the proper type, can
remove taste and odors as well as particles. Some
methods of water treatment for dissolved solids
include reverse osmosis, and polyphosphate
feeders.
RO Water
Ice made by this machine will have a lower mineral
content than the water it was made from. This is
due to the method of making ice. Purer water will
freeze first in the ice making molds. The reason for
this is that anything dissolved in water lowers the
water’s freezing temperature. This concentrates
most of the impurities in the ice machine water
reservoir where they may form hard deposits
known as scale. The machine dilutes the
concentration of minerals by over-filling the
reservoir during the harvest cycle (with the excess
water flowing down the drain). s. Between 2 and 4
pints of water flow into the unit each cycle.
Between 1 and 3.5 pints of that rinses the reservoir
and goes down the drain.
This machine can be supplied with Reverse
Osmosis water. A reverse osmosis system should
include post treatment to satisfy the R.O. water’s
potential aggressiveness. Deionized water is not
recommended.
Because water softeners exchange one mineral for
another, softened water may not improve water
conditions when used with ice machines. Where
water is very hard, softened water could result in
white, mushy cubes that stick together.
If in doubt about the water, contact a local point of
use water specialist for recommendations on water
treatment.
Some impurities will inevitably remain, and will stick
to the parts in the machine, and will cause

Electrical & Start Up
The ice machine is supplied with a power cord. Do
not remove the grounding pin from the cord’s plug.
Do not use extension cords. Follow all codes.
Connect the machine to its own 115 volt, 15 amp
circuit.
1. If the electrical outlet for the ice maker is
behind the unit, plug in the unit.
Initial Start Up
1. Turn on the water supply.
2. Switch on the electrical power.
3. Move the On/Off switch to the ON position.
2. Position the unit in the installation opening.
3. Turn on the water supply. Make sure that the
ice maker is plugged in and the power is on.
4. Slide unit into installation opening, paying
careful attention to water supply and drain
connections. Do not kink!
5. Pour a couple of quarts of water into the ice
storage bin; on drain pump equipped machines
the drain pump should start and water should
pump out. Check for leaks.
6. Replace the service access panel.
4. The compressor will start and water will begin
to flow into the unit. When the reservoir is full,
water will start to drain from the machine. After
a few minutes the water pump and fan motor
will begin to operate and the first ice making
cycle will have begun.
7. Level the unit as needed.
Installation check list:
1. Has the unit been connected to the proper
water supply?
2. Has the water supply be checked for leaks?
3. Has the unit been connected to a drain?
4. Has the drain been tested for flow and leaks?
5. Has the unit been connected to the proper
electrical supply?
No adjustments are needed.
After about a half hour, ice will fall into the ice
storage bin. The machine makes 12 cubes per
batch. It is normal for the first batches of ice to
melt, that continues until the bin has cooled. It will
take 16 to 24 hours of continuous run time to fill the
ice bin. When the bin is full of ice, the ice machine
will shut off. It will automatically restart when the
ice level falls, either from use or normal meltage.
6. Has the unit been leveled?
7. Have all packing materials been removed from
the machine?
Has the door covering been installed?

Cube Size Adjustment
The size of the ice cubes is determined by how
long the ice machine is in the freezing cycle. That
is controlled by the cube size thermostat.
Side Views of Cubes
The cube size thermostat's sensing portion is
attached to the suction tube, near the outlet of the
evaporator. As the machine makes ice, the
temperature of the suction tubing falls. When it
reaches a preset point, the thermostat's contacts
close and connect power to the electronic timer.
The electronic timer finishes the freeze cycle.
Too Small, Adjust Cycle Longer
Adjustment
There is only one proper ice cube size, see the
diagram to the right. If the cubes are not the correct
size, adjust the cube size thermostat.
Just Right
Rotate the cube size thermostat's adjustment
screw clockwise to increase the size of the cube.
Rotate the cube size thermostat's adjustment
screw counter clockwise to make the ice cube size
smaller.

Service Manual
Harvest Time Adjustment
The harvest time can be adjusted so that all the ice
is released during the harvest period, with a few
seconds extra for a safety margin. The adjustment
range is between 2 to 5 minutes.
There is an adjustment screw on the surface of the
electronic timer. Rotate the screw CCW to reduce
harvest time, and CW to increase it. It should be
set to match the machine's performance. If the
machine takes 2 and a half minutes to release the
ice, the harvest time should be set to about 3
minutes.

SCCG30 & SCCP30
Service Manual
Use
No special instructions are needed for use. Just
take as much ice as you need, the machine will
replace it. A scoop is provided, and it can be stored
in the machine using the loop of tubing on the right
side as a holder.
The machine can be shut off anytime by moving
the On/Off switch to OFF.. The machine will shut
off immediately.
What shouldn’t be done?
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is
not ice. Objects like wine or beer bottles are not
only unsanitary, but the labels can slip off and plug
up the drain.
Never allow the machine to operate without regular
cleaning. The machine will last longer if it is kept
clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least
once per year, and preferably twice. Some water
conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning
of the ice making section, and some carpets or
pets will dictate more frequent cleaning of the
condenser.
Normal cubes are tapered cylinders. If the cubes
are ragged and mis-shaped, mineral scale must be
removed from the ice making system
Maintenance
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The outside cabinet & door.
2. The ice storage bin.
3. The condenser.
4. The ice making system.
Noise:
The ice machine is designed for quiet operation,
but will make some noise during the ice making
cycle. During a freezing cycle, it is normal to hear
the fan moving air and the water pump circulating
water. Ice hitting the bin or ice in the bin can be
heard during harvest.
If ice making noise is objectionable, an appliance
grade timer can be added to the power supply. Set
the timer to turn the machine off at the time(s) of
day when the noise is most objectionable.
5. The ice scoop.
How to clean the cabinet.
Wipe off any spills on the surface of the door and
handle as they occur. If anything spilled on the
door or gasket dries onto the surface, wash with
soap and warm water to remove.
How to clean the ice storage bin.
The ice storage bin should be sanitized
occasionally. It is usually convenient to sanitize the
bin after the ice making system has been cleaned,
and the storage bin is empty.
A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of
household bleach and two gallons of hot (95 oF. –
115oF.) water. Use a clean cloth and wipe the
interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing
solution, pour some of the solution down the drain.
Allow to air dry.

Electrical Sequence:
Compressor
Fan motor
Spray pump motor
Drain pump motor
Drain pump switch
Inlet water solenoid valve
Freeze & harvest timer
Cube size thermostat
Hot gas valve
Bin thermostat
The machine uses a temperature initiated, timed
cycle to make ice.
A closed bin thermostat connects power to the
compressor and electronic timer. The timer NO
contacts close, connecting power to the water and
hot gas solenoids.
The compressor starts, the inlet water solenoid
valve opens and fills the reservoir. The harvest
timer starts. At the end of the pre-set harvest time,
the timer will open the NO contacts, stopping the
inlet water valve and hot gas valve. At the same
time, it closes the NC contacts, powering the fan
and pump motors. This is the beginning of the
freeze cycle.
The freeze cycle continues until the cube size
contacts close, this starts a freeze timer. No other
changes occur until the freeze timer expires, when
the NC contacts open and the NO contact close,
starting the harvest cycle.
The harvest cycle is time controlled. At the end of
the harvest cycle the unit returns to a freeze cycle.
Bin control.
The machine's on and off modes are regulated by a
bin thermostat. The cap tube for the bin thermostat
is in the tube that holds the scoop. The machine
will only begin ice making when the thermostat's
contacts close. The machine will stop ice making
whenever the bin thermostat contacts open.

Service Manual
Water System
The water system consists of a water pump, inlet
water solenoid valve, reservoir with overflow
standpipe and spray platform.
Harvest cycle: The inlet water solenoid valve is
open during the harvest cycle. Water flows through
it to the top of the machine and onto the evaporator
platen. The water flows across the platen, warming
it up to assist in releasing the ice. Water drains
from the platen through drain holes at the platen
corners. That water, now chilled by contact with the
evaporator platen, drains into the reservoir. When
the reservoir is full, excess water drains out the
standpipe. When harvest is complete, the inlet
water solenoid closes and water stops flowing into
the machine.
Standpipe
Inlet Water Solenoid Valve
Harvest Cycle Water Schematic
Freeze cycle: The water pump takes water from
the reservoir and forces it through the 6 spray jets,
causing the water to contact the inverted cups of
the evaporator. Unfrozen water falls back into the
reservoir. As ice forms in the cups, the water level
in the reservoir fails. This continues until the
harvest cycle starts.

Service Manual
Refrigeration Service
This ice machine use R-134a type refrigerant.
There are specific rules for handling that
refrigerant.
To check for system pressures, add a field supplied
clamp-on type service valve as a temporary means
of system access. After diagnosis and before final
repair, replace the clamp-on type valve with valves
that are brazed onto the process tubes of the
system.
Use a low flow of dry nitrogen when brazing on the
system.
Install a new filter drier when replacing a
refrigeration component or after a refrigerant leak
repair.
Evacuate the system to at least 300 microns and
use a micron gauge to measure the evacuation
level.
Weigh in the nameplate charge. The machine is
critically charged and a partial ounce mis-charge
will affect performance.
